Allen is famous

Allen was featured on a new blog about our area...Peachtree Corners...because he's been biking to work (9 miles) once or twice a week. I'm so proud of him!

She's so advanced




















Camille is already sitting up on her own...it began pretty much around the 5 month mark. Everett was almost 7 months when he began to sit up. I think this little girl is going to be quick to do a lot of things. She can already roll over both ways and she can even scoot a little bit on her tummy. I know she'll be chasing around after her big brother soon and I can't wait! My only fear is knowing what to do with the marbles, game pieces and leggos we have all over the floor once she becomes mobile! I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

On a sad note, Everett lost his blankie bear, that he's slept with since birth, over the weekend. We were on our way to Gatlinburg, TN, for a family reunion and I stupidly let him take it with him into a gas station. I think he dropped it at the little arcade they had there and none of us noticed. We called the gas station a few times but they said they didn't find it and we went a different way home. I was more upset about it than he was, mainly because I wanted it for the memory. He does have a blanket that he sleeps with too so that will have to suffice.

Here is the last photo we have of Everett and his blankie bear, in the car just before we lost him...sniff, sniff.

Working with Daddy

Allen is about the most patient person I know and he's so great about letting Everett share in whatever project he's working on at the time. It's great because Everett learns so much and it gives Camille and me a little girl time. A couple weekends ago, Allen went out to work on the chimney on our roof. When he said he was bringing Everett along, I just had to break out the camera. I don't know many dads that would bring their 3-year-old up on the roof with them. It was pretty cute and not as dangerous as I thought. Our roof is pretty flat on that part of the house. Please excuse our nasty gutter...we're going to replace it soon.
