Road Trip!

Hey everybody! Sorry I haven't written in a awhile, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. First, Grandma came to visit and we spent a day at the shore. Then, this past weekend, Mommy and Daddy and I drove up to Boston.

It was a LONG time in the car, but luckily we made it and I got to see my relatives up there. Uncle David and Aunt Ruthie babysat for me, and I got to see Cousins Miriam, Sarah, David and Sophie, and Uncle Eli too!

The reason for the trip was the wedding of Mommy and Daddy's friends Jeremy and Mary, who I got to meet on Friday night. Congratulations you guys!

Anyway, here are some highlights from the trip, and the rest of July:

A morning yawn.

Me in my polo shirt- dressed just like Daddy.

Uncle David and I.

Me and Cousin David.

Aunt Ruthie and I.

My new jean jacket- doesn't fit yet, but it will by fall!

Not quite ready to get up yet...

And finally, tomorrow's Daddy's birthday. Happy birthday Daddy!

Six Months Old!

How's it going everybody? Well, today's a big day- I'm six months old! Hard to believe I'm halfway to my first birthday. Mommy and Daddy say they can't believe it's been six months, although they also can't remember what it was like before I was here. Look how much bigger I am than in my first photo!

Anyway, I had to go into the hospital last week for some minor surgery, but everything went fine and I'm doing great. Grandma is visiting from Minnesota for the long weekend to keep me company.

Also, as you can see below, I'm flying now:

It was hard to learn- especially when you can't crawl or walk yet- but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. Anyway, some more highlights of the past week:

Here I am with Cousin Sarah, who I got to meet for the first time, not counting when we chatted on Skype a few months ago.

Am I ready for lunch yet? Hmmm...

Time to stretch!

Looking over Mommy's shoulder

Mmm, my hand!

That's all for now, thanks for checking in!

Happy Fourth, and Welcome Ella

Hey everybody! I just got back from a wonderful weekend down at the Shore with Mommy and Daddy as well as the rest of the family.

More on that in a minute, but I wanted to share the big news: I have a new cousin! I want to welcome Ella Eve Wylen, who was born Saturday in Seattle. Congrats to her parents Jeremy and Alys, and to Cousin Avi on becoming a big brother! I used to be the youngest cousin, but once Aunt Debra's baby is born, I'll be one of the older ones! Can't wait to meet you, Ella.

Anyway, I got to celebrate my first Fourth of July, and we went to the boardwalk Sunday night to watch the fireworks. They didn't faze me much, but I'm sure I'll be even more into them next year. We also went to the beach, while visiting Mommy's friends in Brigantine, and I spent a lot of time around the house with my various family.

Also at the shore- I ate part of a banana! It was only a little bite, but nice to experience non-bottle food for once. Today bananas, tomorrow subs from Dino's!

Anyway, some highlights from the weekend:

Poppop and I on the couch.

Mommom and I.

With Cousin Daniel and Aunt Hannah.

Mommom Ev, Mommom and me.

My cool beachwear.

That's all for now- time to hit the crib. It's REALLY HOT outside, so this sure beats the heat. Thanks for checking in!
