Adventures of a 10 month old

Duke will be turning 10 months old in a few days, and he has just cut two top middle teeth today, bringing his grand total to 4 teeth (others are on the bottom middle). I heard him grinding his teeth this evening and thought, that's a new noise...wait a can't grind teeth when you only have teeth on the bottom!!! :O

He also has begun waving "bye-bye" this week. He gets just as excited as we do when he masters a new skill. So much fun to watch him grin and giggle with delight.

Duke has mastered crawling now, and is standing effortlessly for long periods of time, while holding onto a piece of furniture. Sometimes he'll let go with one or both hands to show off for a few seconds. Lauren was walking at 10 months, so it looks like she has a competitive brother who wants to do no less than match his sister's skills.

Duke has a few words that he says daily. His favorite word (and person) by far is "DaDa". He also says "MaMa", "LaLa" (Lauren), "NaNa" (milk), "aw wa wa" (I love you) seriously, if we tell him we love him, he says these 3 sylables back, and sometimes shows us the ASL sign for I love you (his version, of course). :)

Where are YOU going?

Lauren may be the most decisive person I have met. The following picture is adorable and all but for some reason it just serves as a great reminder to me of how Lauren always knows where she wants to go and what she wants to do. She is becoming quite an amazing girl.

Too Cute

Duke has increased in size considerably since this picture was taken in March. But the picture is too cute not to show the world at least once. :)

While most the "snowbirds' are heading for the hills, it is still a fantastic time to visit family, friends, beautiful scenery, and lots of area attractions here in sunny Scottsdale, AZ.

P.S. Thank you to all the visitors we have had this Spring! You all are dearly loved and greatly missed. We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as possible. :)
