Today we had Marie and Joe over to watch the FSU game and Papa made his world famous ribs! They were DELICIOUS! PJ loved them too. We had a great time, and were quite pleased with FSU's victory against UM!
Papa is leaving tomorrow, even though we don't want him too... But it was sure fun while it lasted!

In other news, my dad is here visiting! It is so nice to have him up here and spending time with PJ. He is actually babysitting today while James and I are at work! We are taking him for his 9 month checkup this afternoon, so check back later for his updated stats!

What I want to remember most about this "stage" you are in is this... No matter how engrossed in a toy you are, you always look around to see where I am and that I am watching you... And sometimes you even give me this great big smile, drop your toy and crawl into my lap for a quick kiss and hug until back to your toys you go.
I love you, baby boy, and you fill my heart with more love and joy than you will ever know!

PJ has changed so much and has done and tried so many new things. He is crawling, going from laying down to sitting up, mimicking when I tell him to say "Mama", and has added a variety of foods to his menu. He has been on boats and in the ocean. It has been a packed summer but we have had a blast, nonetheless! As soon as I get home I will put my pictures on the computer and go more into detail about our vacation! :)

After that, we continued our trek south. We surprised my mom by popping by. James dropped PJ and I off and he went to fill up the truck. He came in and saw Meems briefly but it was getting late and we still had an hour and a half to go! PJ fussed a lot on the last part of the trip but finally fell asleep.
When we got here, Savannah, Sissy, Ry, my dad, Mowisa, and Mrs. Frey were all anxiously waiting! We gave PJ a bath and put him to sleep.
Yesterday we went in the pool and in the late afternoon went for a boat ride.
PJ tried some Yo' Baby yesterday and loved it! He also had his first bath in the big tub. He sat up the whole time and tried to grab at the water. It was so cute!!!
This morning, PJ's top right tooth came in, hence the title of this post! He is starting to scoot more and more and if you put him down on one end of the room, he will likely end up on the other side!
So we are really looking forward to the rest of our time here and if yesterday was any indication of how much fun we are gonna have, then this vacation is going to be AWESOME!
(I have taken tons of pictures, but don't have my laptop... I am blogging from my Blackberry so I will have lots of pictures to post when I get home!!!)

Also, since we are going to the Keys for 10 days, and don't want to have to pack EVERYTHING, (such as his bathtub) I thought I would try to bathe him without it! The sink seemed like just the right size so if he were to lose his balance, he wouldn't hit his head. He did a GREAT JOB and didn't topple over at all.

Uncle John, Aunt Mae and Kairi came on Friday at around 5. The last time we saw them was when Kairi was 2 weeks old in February! She has gotten so much bigger (but yet is still so little) and is absolutely PRECIOUS! It was so great to see her and PJ interact since they are only about a month apart. Here are some cute photos we snapped of them this weekend...
Also, my little monkey got his THIRD TOOTH this morning... the top left! Thank goodness we got another one out of the way! :o)

Also, PJ took a bath tonight SITTING UP! He LOVED IT! So much, in fact, that he soaked me and the floor kicking and splashing all over the place. I think it might be time to move him into the BIG tub!

This week he has moved up to stage 2 foods... He started eating them this past Tuesday. He tried apple sweet potatoes and apple vanilla mixed grain. He really liked both of them. I think apples are one of his favorite things. He starts grunting for more every time I feed them to him!!! He has also started crawling backwards... It will only be a matter of time before he takes off!
In celebration of his 6 months since birth, he also got his 1st haircut today! He looked like such a big boy sitting on daddy's lap with the barber cape around him. He didn't fuss at all!!! He just looked at the man, looked at James, and looked at me! He didn't even freak out when he turned on the shaver or blew the cut hair off of his neck and face!!! He looks so much older now!
Tonight we also received some sad news about a dear friend and colleague that I teach with at Oak Ridge. Betsy Thomas passed away today after battling cancer for the 2nd time. Betsy was an an angel, a light, and a source of inspiration to everyone she ever came in contact with. Every day at school she would greet me by saying, "Hello Bebe" and then would go on to ask about PJ, and life in general. The world has lost a wonderful educator and friend. She will be deeply missed and I know she is looking down on us and protecting us all! Rest in Peace, Betsy... Because I knew and loved you, I have been changed for good...

PJ tried some new food today... squash and watermelon! He loved them both!!! After he ate his dinner, I put him in his excersaucer and sprinkled some puffs around. HE PICKED ONE UP AND ATE IT ON HIS OWN!!! This was the first time he did that! Such a big boy... Like my mom always says... DON'T BLINK!

We had some people over (last minute) to celebrate James' 28th. It turned out very nice. We had homemade baked ziti and cupcakes.
Happy Birthday to my BEST FRIEND! You are an amazing father and husband, and PJ and I couldn't be more lucky to have you in our lives! I look forward to celebrating your birthday for the rest of our lives!

Today, he started trying to pick up things up with his thumb and pointer finger, so I thought I would try to give him some Cheerios. He didn't know what to do with them, so I had to feed him. I am sure he will slowly get the hang of it... For now, I will enjoy this time where he wants me to feed him and needs my help!

When I got to work, I got a call from James... PJ got his first tooth (bottom left). I was so upset that I hadnn't seen it before I left! As soon as I knew he was at Sheena's, I called her and asked her to check... SURE ENOUGH- it was there!
As soon as I picked him up I checked out his mouth and could feel the razor sharp tooth poking through. That night when I gave him his dinner, I noticed something on the bottom right... Upon further inspection, I found out it was his BOTTOM RIGHT TOOTH! So, 2 teeth in one day... Let's hope his other teeth come in as smoothly as those did!!!

PJ also had his 1st vegetable today- CARROTS! I chose to give him those because they are more sweet than other vegetables. I have always HATED cooked carrots, so I am hoping that PJ will like them since they are good for you. He seemed to enjoy them, and some of them ended up on his clothes. I really need to get some of those plastic bibs so I don't ruin the other ones! :-)

On Friday, I finally took the plunge and chopped my hair off! I was a little disappointed at first, and was missing my hair, but now I love it. It takes less than 10 minutes to blowdry!!! That night we went to Hunter and Savannah's LAX picnic. There was music and food and PJ really enjoyed being outside!
Saturday was the big party day!!! In the morning we went to Hunter's last LAX game of the season, and PJ got a little sunburned! That South Florida sun will get you even when you are in the shade!
Layci had a blast at her party! She loved her cake that her mommy made for her, and played in the pool that PJ got her! Everything turned out just perfect for our little princess!
Later in the afternoon, when the sun went down a little, James and I took PJ in the pool. HE LOVED IT! He was kicking his legs and smiling and laughing! We put him in Brady's float toy and pulled him around the pool a little bit.
Sunday was Layci's actual birthday, which also happened to be Mother's Day. What a wonderful gift for my sister! :-) We made sausage, egg and cheese casseroles, as well as, french toast casserole, and James went out and brought us Starbucks and some bagels from our favorite bagel shop. He and PJ got me cards and a beautiful pink orchid plant. It was so wonderful to be around my husband, son, and the rest of my family. We had a bar-be-que that night which was the perfect ending to a perfect family weekend.
PJ and I on my 1st Mother's Day!

On the way home, Karen drove with us, so I rode in the back with PJ. I was talking to him and tickling him, and then I heard it... HIS FIRST GIGGLE! He was laughing so hard at me... It was one of those belly laughs from deep down and completely melted my heart!
