I know it’s been a while since I made an update.  Actually, it’s been a long while.  Life’s been busy and my computer hasn’t been on much other than at work.  So let’s see if I can recap recent activity while I watch the trashy Rock of Love show.  Hmm…after finding that link I could just read about what was going to happen rather than watch, but that’s not as amusing.

Courtney had her 9 month checkup.  All was good.  She’s growing lots and you’ll see that once I finally load up some more pictures.  The fourth tooth that has been in and out for a few weeks finally came through for good recently.  That makes 4 teeth for her.  She puts them to good use biting food.  She is such a good eater.  Courtney has also gotten even better at crawling and has moved to standing up on her knees.  She’s pulled herself to standing on furniture a couple times too.  I watch her and can see how hard she works to try to stand.  She ends up on hands and feet a lot.

Bode has been busy playing with stop signs and looking at the air conditioning.  He loves the air conditioner units on the outside of buildings.  Crazy kid.  He’s also been obsessed with little potties and outpotties.  He has been doing very well with toilet training.  That’s good since Montessori school starts next week and he can’t wear diapers to his class there.  With all this effort to potty train, I think we visited every outpotty in Yellowstone and the gas stations between it and our cabin!!

Yellowstone was great.  I have a million pictures, but haven’t loaded any of them up yet.  Actually, I only have about 1200.  I still need to sort through them, but I promise to post soon.

Courtney in the tentCourtney has been up on hands and knees for a few weeks looking like she was about to crawl.  She finally started to crawl around last weekend.  She went into daycare on Monday and showed off her new skill to her teachers.  It’s exciting, but now she’s into everything!  The gate is back up.  I also had to keep grabbing her as she charged for the bowl of dog water.  I think it’s time to move it outside for a while.

It has been a busy couple weeks for Courtney.  In addition to crawling, she has gotten three new teeth.  She has two on the bottom and one on the top with another one about to come through on the top!  We noticed the first tooth back on Bode’s birthday while we were sitting by the lake.
