Playing Catch-Up | January 2011

So, there are many, many happenings that I haven't had a chance to blog about, but really want to remember.  Bear with me.  These are my memories.

Amanda introduced us to an awesome, new park right next to the San Diego Temple in La Jolla.  It doesn't have a playground or anything; it's just a greenbelt with TONS of open space.  The boys absolutely love it.  They just run and run and run some more, playing in bushes and under trees, throwing balls and frisbees.  They love it when we go there and throw out the blanket for a picnic.  It's a great park.  See how much Pipilo *loves* the grass?  :D

We babysat our little buddies and this is how Amanda and Jared found me when they returned.  So precious!

The boys made themselves a snowboard and skis out of a USPS box and some scrap paper.  Here they are heading down the slopes:

Pipilo bonding with his daddy.  I adore these pictures because they prove how much Pip adores his daddy even though he's a hopeless mama's boy.

Pip taking on the playroom with his big brothers.  They have a grand ol' time in there.

Bugga gave Pip a taxi ride in the laundry basket one afternoon.  Pip loved it; he didn't want to get out.

Corban had his 3rd birthday and invited us to his party.  Here's Jared trying to teach him how to blow out his candles, Corban sharing his cake with Bugga, and Bugga exulting in the sugar high.

In his sixth month, Pipilo really started to move and groove his way around whatever room he was stationed in.  It was always entertaining to watch him roll, bend, twist, and prop himself up on his very tippy toes in Down Dog position.  He was a determined little bugger and managed to get himself crawling by the time he cruised through the half-year mark.

And, of course, we had Pip's six-month photo session.  Isn't he just the cutest little giraffe you ever did saw?

Bye now!  Stay tuned for our February catch-up.
