Henry isn't crazy about the jumperoo, but has started to at least jump a little....
From 2013_7_20 Henry Jumping, Liberty Swimming

Liberty has gone from barely swimming and not floating at all a few weeks ago to REALLY SWIMMING and can float for 16 seconds!  She can swim the shorter length of the pool.  This video is not that great because I was home alone with both kids and didn't get fully in the water to make her perform like the swimming monkey she is.

Henry 7 Months Old

Notes for the baby book....

  • twirls his feet at the ankles when anything exciting is happening (sister is performing, food is coming, etc)
  • can truly throw! (balls, binkies, blocks)
  • only food he dislikes - puffs
  • no teeth - tons of drool
  • sits independently, scoots, can't get into sitting position by himself.
  • Has no interest in using his legs to stand or jumping in the jumperoo. *edit - 7.5 months old now and he is finally jumping in that thing!
  • naps 9-11am and 1-3:30  and sometimes has a tiny 40 min nap at 5pm.
  • Sleeps 7:15pm to 7am

We broke in the new minivan by driving almost 2,000 miles for a week long adventure in Colorado.  First we spent 1 night in Flagstaff to visit with Grandma Jo (Grandpa was rafting the Colorado River).  Then, we drove about 6 hours to Durango, CO and stayed 4 nights with our friends Molly and Josh and their 10 month old Brooklyn.  We rode a steam powered train to Silverton, took a day trip to Pagosa Springs to enjoy the hot springs along the river and bopped around historic downtown Durango.  Then we took another 6 hour drive to just outside Denver to where Molly and Josh live and stayed with them for 2 more nights.  We celebrated the 4th of July with them and saw some fireworks from the view on their deck way up in the mountains of Evergreen. We visited the Denver Aquarium, ate ice cream and shopped in Boulder, CO.  Saturday we ventured the 13 hour drive back and everyone did awesome - dressed in PJs for the car ride at a dinner stop in Kayenta and went right to sleep when we got home!  It was so nice to see my best friend from 5th grade and to vacation with 75* temps!
