Thank you to all of you who have been leaving comments, we love to see who is enjoying the blog. I have to tell you that some weeks I just don't feel like taking any more pictures or doing any more blog updates but when I read all of your comments, I am motivated to keep going.

Here's this weeks update, enjoy!

Like father like son...DJ just walked over to Daryl's golf club and picked it up. He then crawled around the living room with it.

This weekend we went to Long Beach and rented a bicylcle that we could all get on at one time. Dj had a ball "driving". Afterwards we went for Mexican food where DJ had a cheese quesadilla and black beans, he loved every bite!

This picture was taking at the petting farm right next to our house (it is so close that we can walk there). While DJ is too little to feed the goats and sheep, he sqealed with delight when we would get too close and they would lick his feet.

DJ and Daddy sharing laughs.

9 Months Old

9/15/06 - DJ has his 9 month check up today. He had his blood taken (from his finger) to check his hemoglobin level and had a Hepatitis B shot in his leg. He is a trooper and only cried for less than a minute.

Stats - DJ weighs in at 20 lbs 11 oz and 29.5 inches long.

He is doing great and as always is a joy. He claps now when he sees us clap. He is working on getting his 5th tooth and is still pulling up on everything in sight, I have to be careful if I have an elastic waist on when DJ is around :) He enjoys his new walker toy but still goes a bit fast. DJ gets a big laugh out of Sophie. He thinks it is so funny when she runs through the house. She is doing great with him and lets him chase her aound the house.

Hopefully you are all enjoying the pictures, please leave us a commnet so that we know you are looking.

Our Trip To MD (Part 2)

9/3/06 Cookout at The Holts - Grandma Saundra and Pop-pop had a cookout on Sunday and DJ got his first taste of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and even pound cake. He has been such a good eater and is trying all different types of food (avocado, hard boiled egg yolks, yogurt, cheese, waffles, french toast, rice, nectarines, pineapple to name a few). He loves to pick things up and eat them by himself.
