11 months (last Saturday)

I have been so busy and over whelmed with work the past 2 weeks that I haven't had a free minute to sit down and post these picture of Gates from Saturday. He is 11 Months now!

Here is a brief summary of what has been going on in Gates' world.
  • He is walking pretty much all the time now.
  • He has 5 teeth.
  • He ways around 21 lbs.
  • Claps.
  • Does the "Itsy Bitsy Spider," which is his favorite song.

Family portraits from the beach

Here are some of the portraits I (and the timer on my camera) took at the beach.

Gates has been taking steps for a couple of weeks but it never seemed to qualify as walking. He would take three steps and then crash on his butt. The past week he has been taking more steps. This is what Gates walking looks like.

First time at the beach

We took Gates to the beach for the first time and he thought it was okay. It really wore him out though. He likes the pool better.

The final Good BYE

Sorry we have been MIA. We did actually survive the move, barely. All last week consisted of trying to get out of the house and getting things done for the closing, which was Thursday. On top of all the craziness of trying to get out of the house Chris and I also had the busiest week with work for me and Chris was wrapping up his last summer classes for grad school. Like I said before we barely made it through the week. The only thing that kept us from loosing our sanity was knowing that we would be going to the beach at the end of the week. So we are at the beach now!!!!!!! We drove down Saturday and will be here till Saturday. I meant to put of the final post saying goodbye to our house last week but the computer got packed and I got busy so it never happened. So, there are no before pictures but there wasn't any big changes after.

Gates' room
The back porch actually was a big project. Chris basically rebuilt the back porch and screened it in. He put a new hardwood floor in and I love it!!!! We spent a lot of time hanging out on this porch. I don't have a picture of it but we also put in a brick patio.

That is it, Good BYE old house!
