Eric is 1 year, 5 months, and 1 week old!

This passed weekend we went to a wedding in San Diego and stayed with Auntie Heather. Eric had so much fun opening and closing Auntie's doors (because they have lever handles unlike the round door knobs at home), and turning on and off Auntie's lights (because her light switches are just his height), and trying to love on Auntie's kitty (who did not want to be loved on at all by anybody). We all had a wonderful time.

Heather and Ken swing dancing at the wedding (they were a huge hit!)

Eric had so much fun during his first trip to the beach!

Here he is on the lifeguard tower in his lifeguard shirt - too cute!!!

Eric's first trip to the beach also included surf boarding!

The perfect family vacation photo!

Later that night we went out to dinner at the Souplantation with cousin Dan.

The next morning, we went out to breakfast. Eric got to play with crayons for the first time - of course he had to taste them, lol!

Auntie drives us to the airport, Eric doesn't want to leave!

Eric is 1 year and 5 months old! (17 months!)

Eric's new word this week is "whey" with a strong higher pitched intonation at the end of the word (like a question). It seems to be a word he uses in place of the words: 'what,' 'where,' 'wait,' and 'why.' He is also saying "hi" which sounds more like 'eh?' And "bye" which sounds like 'ba!' He will also wave goodbye if he doesn't like something and either wants it to leave or wishes he himself could leave the area, lol!

Hooray, time for our evening constitutional!

Eric's eyes are closed and he is hugging Mook! :) Mook is tolerating it, lol!

4 months along (17 weeks and 4 days to be exact)! Still throwing up and feeling tired, I keep telling myself just a few more weeks of this and it should be done!

Eric is 1 year and 4 months and 3 weeks old!

Eric loves music and he has been singing along to a lot of his musical toys this week!

He has also discovered how to lick his fingers when something yummy is on there. Peanut butter is always a big hit, but recently he has started sticking his fingers in whatever I am feeding him and tasting it off his fingers or thumb - too cute!

Sunday night he was pushing his toy bus around and made little boy truck noises! This is the first time he has done this and I was so excited Scott and I were both in room to hear it!

Some folks have been asking to see pix of the grandparents and other extended family members with Eric. I don't put them up unless I ask permission first - there are a lot of pictures of me that people have put online that I am less than happy about, so I will start asking permission and you will see some grandparent pix up soon! Thanks for all your comments!

How many cell phones does a boy who can't speak in complete sentences need? His look seems to say, "It's all about the COOL factor, Mom!"

Eric is 1 year, 4 months and 2 weeks old!

I have been waiting with bated breath to take Eric to the pumpkin patch this year!

I put him in his Halloween costume and Daddy did his hair just like Superman's!

We went to Bishop's Pumpkin Farm.

Eric LOVED the petting zoo!

He ran all over the huge farm!

They had lots of cool things for kids to play on.

The pumpkin patch was HUGE!

The pumpkins were huge too!

They also had a train!

Eric got to sit in a tractor!

And pretent to drive the pumpkin cart!

We picked out a great pumpkin!

It was a wonderful day!

We all had a terrific time!
