I'm a big boy now!

Well Garrett is getting bigger and busier right before our eyes! This weekend we were forced to buy a new car since my '97 Camry went to heaven. We bought a '06 Honda Accord and with it had to come a new car seat for Garrett since he has grown out of his pumpkin seat. He is now 22 lbs! He was very excited about his big boy seat which came as a wonderful gift from Grandma Kline. Thanks Grandma! Garrett also took his first steps on January 17 (yes he is only 9 1/2 months old). He will walk about three steps between mom and dad and will hold onto one of our hands and walk beside us. Below is our video of our boy in action. He is so proud of himself!

The box is always the best part!

I have hope that one day he will help me clean!

Baby, Its cold outside!

We are cold! I am sure you are experiencing this as well. I had this great idea last night that I would bundle Garrett up and see what he thought about the elements! We as you can see, he didn't like the snow and the cold! Maybe there will be a snowman or two in his future but it was not happening on this night!

Happy 30th Birthday, daddy! My nieces bought those
candles and insisted I use them for his cake!

Busy buddy

Happy New Year to all our friends and family! Hopefully 2009 will turn out better than this first picture of Garrett celebrating the new year. We had a great time at our neighboor's the Elfreichs. We enjoyed good food and drinks and toasted in the new year at a kid friendly 9:00pm! May 2009 bring you boutiful blessings and memories!

Gymboree time!

We wanted to post some new pictures of Garrett at Gymboree. Mommy signed us up for Gymboree classes on Mondays when she is off work. It has been a great way to spend time together and let Garrett work off some energy! Since Daddy was off the past 2 weeks from school he was able to attend and spend some time with Garrett.
