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!
