Several "firsts" in one day

Aunt Jenna and Myers at the Braves game.

George and Myers at the park.

Myers at the aquarium.

Myers had three "firsts" all in one day.
On Saturday Myers visited the Georgia Aquarium for the first time. He loved looking at all the fish and all the people. He especially enjoyed the tanks that were at ground level because he could sit by himself and try to grab them.
After the aquarium, we walked around Centennial Olympic Park and Myers got to crawl around on the grass. Although, we have taken Myers for walks at the park before, this was the first time that he really got down on the ground to play.
Last night, we went with Aunt Jenna to the Braves game. Jenna is going to have teach Myers all about sports since George and I are hopeless when it comes to the rules of most sports!

School's back in session...let the craziness begin!

As of tomorrow, I will have officially finished the first two weeks of the new school year. Things have been crazy and hectic, but will hopefully settle down soon. I know George is looking forward to things settling down enough that I can at least cook a home cooked meal a few times a week. I think he is getting a little tired of Lean Cuisines, sub sandwiches, and frozen pizza!
As I predicted, Myers loves being back at school! I think he is the most active kid in the infant room even though he isn't the oldest. He scoots around everywhere and tries to get into everything now!
George just brought in some okra from our (well really it's his) garden. He has definitely learned some things about gardening this summer. I don't think corn will be in the garden next year because it takes up so much room, and you get very little harvest. We had a pretty good crop of beans, but some rabbits ate the plants during campmeeting! Now the okra and watermelon are coming along nicely, and since those are my favorites anyway I am excited.

7 months old!

Myers is 7 months old today. I can't believe how quickly time has flown. He now weighs about 17 1/2 pounds. He is eating all types of food and even does a few finger foods like puffs and Cheerios. We has a no trouble picking the pieces up but a little trouble actually getting the food into his mouth! He gets it there, but doesn't let go. Overall, he is a really good eater, and we haven't found anything that he doesn't like!

Myers is really close to crawling now. He does the inchworm. He sticks up his little bottom and then pushes himself forward. He can get anywhere he wants by inchworming or rolling.

Pre-planning starts tomorrow, so Myers will be going back to the infant room. We visited last week and he seemed really interested to be with all the other babies, adults, and new toys! I know he will do fine, but I know I will cry.
