9 month check up

Will also had his 9 month checkup. He is now 22 lb 12oz and is 29" long! He has dropped down to the 85th percentile for height and weight. The doctor also gave him a clean bill of health, those bothersome ear infections and croup have cleared up! Will is still on Zyrtec, we think he has inherited our seasonal allergies. Poor little man!

I don't have any pictures of his check up, so I've added two more photos from our trip. The first is of me, Carrie and Will on the porch at the Search House. The second is Will and his cousin Makayla. Makayla is a little over a year older than Will and we think they look just alike!

Fourth of July

Chris' college buddy was getting married on 7/7/07 in Altoona, PA and Chris was in the wedding. We headed up last week for the festivities. We left on July 3rd and drove through the night. Will slept almost the whole way and with Chris and I taking turns the drive wasn't too bad. We spent the Fourth with Chris' parents. They had a cook out and set off some fireworks. Will loved the fireworks, he thought the light was fantastic and the noise didn't bother him at all. The lucky boy even got his first Popsicle at the cook out. It was blue and not only turned his mouth blue but he kept putting his thumb in his blue mouth, so much that it became blue too!

On July 6th we headed down to Altoona. On the way down we stopped at State College. We had a good time walking around campus. We, of course, had to take photos at the Nitany Lion statue. We also stopped at the Creamery. Will got his fair share of our ice cream. We weren't sure if we'd ever get him eating good food again after enjoying Popsicles and ice cream.

Will came with us to the rehearsal dinner and had a very good time. We were very lucky and for the wedding itself, Chris' parents came down to Altoona for the evening to watch Will. Nana and Poppa took him to Cracker Barrel for dinner. I think they had a nice evening and Chris and I were able to really enjoy the wedding. We stayed out till 11 pm! I don't think we have been out this late for some time. It's funny how a with a baby those high school curfews make a reappearance.

Finally on our way back to Florida, we stopped to visit my sister in Mount Jackson, VA. She has been dying to introduce her nephew to her house mates. She showed him off and Will enjoyed visiting Aunt Carrie. She has a very nice screened porch and we spent some time out there swinging Will. He really liked that. Sadly, we eventually had to hit the road again and we drove back to Gainesville that evening. It was a very fun trip!
