Another One for the Books

Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty much just as the title says: another one for the books. We really didn’t do anything out of the ordinary and just sort of plugged along.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been rather warm (high 90s into low 100s) and muggy. Typical June-almost July weather for us, really.

What Paul’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary…mainly just keeping busy with work, school, and home life. 🙂

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary for me, either…mainly just keeping the kiddos healthy and happy. 🙂

What Joseph’s Been Up To: I’ve been working with him to be a little more independent with some things. This past week, he learned to buckle his own seat belt and how to open and close the van door. It’s amazing how much faster getting into the car has gotten now that I only have to load Abigail into her car seat as opposed to both of them. 🙂 Another big thing that happened was that he got the correct rhythm while on the swings in order to pump his legs so that he doesn’t need pushing. He’s had the concept in his brain for a while, but hasn’t gotten the rhythm correct before. He was pretty excited. 🙂

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She hit her six month mark this past week. She also is starting to sit up on her own (if I place her in a sitting position, that is). She’s been really drooly and wanting to shove anything and everything into her mouth to chew on, too. I think we’re getting closer to some teeth making their appearance…I can hardly believe how much time has passed and how big she’s getting!

This Week in Pictures:

Showing off her new sun hat. I was mainly letting her get used to the idea of a hat.
Starting to be able to support herself a bit. She still needs me close by since she tends to lean or tip as her muscles tire out.
Such a happy six-month-old!

Bonus Video: Joseph loves to make Abigail laugh by making funny sounds. 🙂
