We had a great week this week. Trigg hit the 9 month mark and is becoming a man on the move. We did our first shoulder ride and we both thought it was so fun!
It was hot all week, temps in the 90's to 100's we headed to the pool to cool off. Grandma Doreen got Trigg these sweet swim undie's that go under his swim trunks...so he doesn't have to wear a swim diaper. They work great...and work pretty good as a hat too!
Trigg also loves helping fold his laundry...
...catch that side...
The Olympics are right around the corner and we are all excited to watch...Trigg, inspired by the gymnasts, has been working on his infant splits!
...and I was afraid that this day would come, confusion between Trigg's toys and Riley's toys...as Trigg was rolling around the basement he came across Riley's dog bone...at first it was just a close inspection...
...but then he wanted to try chewing on it like Riley! The bone was quickly removed...
...and replaced with a car. That sheepish grin!
The backyard project has started...it doesn't look like much now, but that is a fairly steep hill (used for sleding in the winter), well the plan is to dig out the hill and put in retaining walls with a lower patio and fire pit.
The first wall is taking shape!
Our grass may be dead but our hydrangea's are blooming!
We planted these Lime Light hydrangea's last year and I just love them!
Oh yeah...these two have been chasing each other around the house all week too! They usually keep it to a dull roar with an occasional bark! Riley always loves having friends over!
Well that pretty much wraps up our week. Hope your week was good too!
A new ending to the week in review: question of the week. This week's question: What book (or books) are you reading this summer?
That's right, Trigg turned 9 months old last week! So we busted out his sweet 9 month tie and snapped a few pictures!
It wouldn't be a photo shoot without a Riley photobomb! Riley is getting more brave around Trigg...and Trigg just wants to chase her around the house!
Some things our 9 month old is up to: barrel rolling across the floor, trying to coordinate his arms and legs to start crawling, wanting to stand up on his own, loving the swimming pool and splash park, eating Cheerios on his own, chatting with Mom at the grocery store...and he loves dance parties!
"For wearing a tie every Wednesday Dad, you got mine on a little low and crooked..."
Once the tie came off and Mr G found his way to the floor...it was time for a wrestling match!
First, the stretch to see if our opponent is within arms reach...
Couldn't reach him sitting up...so use gravity and lean over my legs with my head and my body follows, now I'm rollin'...
We had another pretty good week! It started off a little rough...Trigg had a reaction to the antibiotics and broke out in a rash! Poor little guy, the hives didn't seem to bother him, just make him red and blotchy!
Those didn't last too long, only a couple of days, and then he was back to his normal self...feeding himself Cheerios!
Being cute with his slight head tilt at the table!
He is still sleeping like a champ...but with confidence in rolling, is has been sleeping on his side and stomach!
Too cute...even a little drool!
We tried a new recipe this week, asparagus wrapped chicken! It was pretty good!
Trigg barrel rolling while chewing on some letters...
We think more teeth are coming in...he wants to chew on everything, even in the bathtub!
Coco came at the end of the week and Trigg loves having 2 dogs in the house...Coco doesn't mind her hair getting pulled a little, so she will lay next to Trigg!
Well that wraps up our week...what's new with you?
