Oh my!  A baby!  Your cousin Lucy is about 9 days old in this pic.  It’s so crazy to think that 11 months ago you were that size.  She is such a cutie.  Just like you she turns bright red as soon as she’s angry.  You will have lots of adventures as you grow older, just make sure she stays safe, ok?

We head out to the land almost every night after work.  You have gotten in the habit of taking a nap during the drive and sometimes during our entire visit.  The weather has been blissfully cool lately, which only aids in your napping.  Still no walking other than a few teasing steps, but we are told the chaos grows exponentially as soon as you do, so feel free to take your time.

I have a feeling a construction site is going to be the backdrop of most of these photos going forward.  Here they had poured the foundation and were waiting for it to set up.  You are standing where the garage will someday be.  You have taken several steps for us, but quickly decide you are much faster at crawling and hit your knees.  Before we know it you will be running and jumping everywhere.

The foundation for our house was dug this week.  It looks big!  Which is great cause we know just how much room you need!  It’s going to be a stressful journey, but well worth it when we get to move in and enjoy it!
