Apple Picking!!!: (September 29, 2012)

Today our whole family went to Julian to pick apples!!! It was the first time for both you and Lawrence. Both of you had so much fun!

Here you are looking very serious as Mommy and Daddy explained the steps of apple picking...

But then I think you had a smile on your face the rest of the time! Daddy is so much fun!

You did such a wonderful job picking apples, and you had SO MUCH FUN with Ella!

While you were having fun with Ella, Lawrence was trying to pick apples with Daddy. It was the first time Lawrence had seen apples, and he was very interested in trying to pick one and examine it...sooo cute!

After you and Ella filled both of your bags with apples, we went into town to eat ice cream. It was such a hot day and ice cream was the perfect thing to help cool off.

After you finished every last bite of your ice cream, we went to buy Mommy apple cider and you had so much fun playing outside with Daddy.

Mommy and Daddy had so much fun with you, and we can't wait to take you and Lawrence again next year!!!

Lawrence is 5 Months Old!!! (September 17, 2012)

Lawrence, you are now 5 months old!!!! Mommy just can't believe how fast the time is going!

You didn't try to put the sock monkey in your mouth this time, but your pictures are a little blurry because you were moving around so much:) I love your big are such a happy little boy!

At five months old, you:

*** are now wearing 6-12 month clothes and are still wearing size 2 Pampers diapers.

*** are still trying to put everything you can reach into your mouth. You are definitely teething!

*** can now easily reach out for an object you want and try to immediately put it in your mouth.

*** have decided you don't like your swing anymore and cry now whenever I try to put you in. You definitely prefer falling asleep on Mommy when you're at home but can also fall asleep easily in your car seat when we're out of the house.

*** are becoming so vocal, especially with your Daddy and sister. You have almost mimicked sounds that sound like Hi and Daddy when Daddy talks to you, and you have a special baby language with Briana.

*** just love when Daddy holds you!

***have started sitting in the highchair so you can be at the dining room table for meals.

***love playing in your "baby area".

***are with Mommy everywhere I go, (which Mommy loves!), and you've even been to two baby showers with me this month.
