Here comes trouble...

Ry is finding his independence this week (how thoughtful of him to coincide with Independence Day coming up). My little rolly polly boy is now crawling all over the place. His favorite activity is to squirm all the way across the room to mess with the DVD player or remotes. He isn't quite pulling up to a stand, but I had Trevor lower his crib to the mid-height because I was worried he was going to pull himself up and over any day now...but as soon as he got it secure in the middle position...this is what happened:

So, Trevor crawled back under the crib and lowered it all the way down. Ah, the beginning stages of having a toddler... I am scared...we have had 2 good years of no real need for baby proofing, and I have forgotten how much work it is, but it is fun to see him grow and find the world around him (or at least the world in our own home) ;-).

He looks so proud and excited by the new possibilities! Yeah, that baby proofing scares me even more with older kids I've realized when I'm at friend's houses. At least I've just never really bought things with small pieces for Cash yet, but yesterday at my friend's house (who has two older kids) every time I looked at the twins they had coins, small toys, pieces of little things all heading into their mouths! Good luck!

Beckett was totally captivated by Rylan in the video! Look how big your baby is... and no doubt about to cause some major trouble!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
