Everett Update

Everett was 11 months old yesterday and now has two top teeth coming in. What's funny is it's his two side front teeth, rather than the two middle front teeth. I can tell the other two top teeth won't be far behind. I'm glad he'll be able to eat more foods now that he's getting his top teeth. He's also now able to crawl up our stairs, which is fun but also a scary proposition considering he can't yet go down. He surprises me how easily he can stand up now and how quickly he gets around.

This morning we were rolling a golf ball back and forth and he could actually throw it to me, which surprised me. When I say throw it, I mean the ball got a little air and it generally went in my direction. He definitely favors his right hand, but he could throw farther with his left. Perfect since we're training him to be the first major league switch pitcher. :) He also can finally wave although not always on command. He's eating more and more and getting so tall. His summer clothes are getting kind of small. Luckily I bought a wide range of sizes because I felt like this would happen. He's wearing some 12 month clothes, but mostly 18 months or 24 months.

We're going to be doing a lot of traveling coming up. We're heading to Augusta this Fri-Sat for Allen's sister's (Lindsay) engagement party. Then we're going to the beach with Allen's family next weekend. Then the following two weekends we'll be on a long trip through Indiana and Ohio visiting various relatives and childhood friends of mine and attending my dad's family reunion. It's going to be a busy July!
