9 months old!!!

I can't believe Fischer is 9 months old (Sunday)!! I am finally getting the videos posted that I promised. Several weeks ago Fischer got sick, then me, then Dustin, then my mom (who was helping us while we were sick)! It was the never-ending cold...each of us was sick for about a week, and with them overlapping, it felt like forever! I am grateful we made it this far without Fischer being sick...can you believe we made it 8 1/2 months without so much as a fever? He has 6 teeth now and loves to crawl, stand up, furniture surf, and climb. I'll get his height and weight on Tuesday at his checkup. For now, here are some videos and pictures from the past month:

Fischer liked jumping on the trampoline with Grandpa and Uncle Solomon in Texas.

Fischer's first try at picking up his puffs (This is Mrs. Edwards, Nana's friend).

The Great Escape!

Fischer's first fever (with tooth #4) :(

Papa put my name on my wagon with his wood burning tool!

Zeke, you're always in the way, but we love you :)

Finally Fischer will hold his own bottle! For months now he was able to, but just wouldn't do it! I still hold him in my lap at bottle time, but I had to get this picture...isn't he cute in his jammies?

Lots of Stuff

I'm a little behind with my blogging, so here are some pictures from the last few weeks. I will follow them soon with some more really cute videos!

Labor Day: Playing with Cousin Matt and his girlfriend Rich in Orlando (other cousins and family not pictured); hanging out with daddy at the lake behind the cousins' house.

August 21: Playing with our good friend Leo...he's 2 and he's the smartest kid we know! (not kidding!)

Following in daddy's footsteps!

Yummy teething biscuit! He had to go straight to the bath after this!

This is the wild peacock that lives in the nieghborhood where we walk...no one knows where it came from, it just showed up a few years ago and never left! Fischer also had his first experience in grass this day (for those of you up north, we have too many fireants to let him crawl on untreated grass...this is at a friend's house)

Pastor Danny and Mrs. Claudia, who have been in Uganda the past 3 years, came for a visit!

We went to Texas (just Fischer and me) for a long weekend in August. Here he's hanging out at Grandma's house!


Visiting with Grandpa Jack and later with Solomon while in Texas!
