Here he is saying "I am SO over this":He got hot in his costume, so I unzipped it for him - only to uncover that he really is a tiger!

We got to have lunch with my aunts and grandma one day - here's Josiah with my aunt Naomi:
Josiah now has 4 teeth - 2 on top & 2 on bottom. He is now eating Cheerios and of course loves them. He is also practicing walking (not quite on his own yet, but it won't be long!).

Here he is at Jason's cousin's wedding (congrats Rachel!) dancing the night away with his cousin Trent.
He was exhausted at the end of the night, but he had a blast! Here he is with a 'I-got-to-stay-up-past-my-bedtime' mischievious grin.
We are having fun trying to corral him - he keeps us on our toes!
Updates on his growth:
*Last week we went to the doctor, and found out that he is in the 25th percentile for his weight and the 90th for height.
*This week he got one of his top teeth!
*He can now say the 'Ma' sound. I like to pretend that he's calling me mommy (after all, he is a genius).
*He is getting a little more graceful at going from a standing position back to a seated position (he used to just fall).
That's all I can think of for now. Have a great weekend!

Here are some additional cute pictures of Josiah. He is super active and curious and loves to explore everything. Here he is happily digging in his toy box.
This picture was taken right before we went on a walk on one of the cooler days we had. I just thought he looked cute!
This is how he sleeps. Always on his stomach with his butt in the air; sometimes with a foot between the crib bars, or his head mashed into a corner.
He picked up a runny nose at church - here he is blowing a snot bubble and drooling simultaneously. He is so talented!
Happy fall everyone!

Here he is kneeling in his crib. I tried to get him to stand up for the picture but he was too worried about getting out of his crib (a.k.a. not having to go down for a nap).
Sorry for the shaky-ness of this video, but here he is crawling to me and trying to pull himself up. He didn't quite get there in the video - I think he was too interested in the camera.
He will be walking before we know it!! Yikes!

The first week in August we went with my side of the family to Branson for vacation. We had fun just hanging out at the pool (Josiah loved the pool) and playing Settlers and relaxing - and Jason, my brother & my dad got to do some fly fishing.
It was a good trip, but the day we left Branson Josiah started running a fever. We kept giving him Tylonel and Motrin, but that evening it got up to 102.5 and I was freaking out a little bit. We were with Jason's side of the family at that point, and Jason's mom helped bring Josiah's fever down (and calm me down) by giving him a lukewarm bath. Josiah's fever broke on Monday so I thought maybe he was getting better. Long story short, I took him to see a friend who is a nurse later that week (thanks Janna!), and she told me that he had an ear infection - despite the fact that he was sleeping ok, not running a fever, and not acting sick! He's been on antibiotics for about a week now, and is doing much better.
Last week my dad called Jason to see if he could get off for a last minute fly fishing trip (those 2 should not be allowed to talk to each other!). So we took a 1 day trip which counts as Jason's graduation present. I didn't have much fun because I was not feeling well, taking care of a sick baby who did not want to sleep, and I literally got around 30 bug bites on a 1/3 mile hike in the woods. But Jason caught a nice rainbow trout and had a fun time fishing, and we found out that he looks really cute in waders!
Also in the past couple of weeks, Jason got a new job! He starts this coming Thursday and he is very excited about the new opportunity/challenge. It is a well deserved promotion and I am super proud of him.
Other than having his 1st full blown cold, here are the other things Josiah has been up to:
*He now has 2 (very sharp) teeth (can you see them?)! I would advise keeping your fingers out of his mouth.
*He is eating baby food twice a day - I am attempting to make most of it. So far he loves sweet potatoes, avacado, brown rice cereal, and bananas; but he is not a fan of zucchini, papaya, or oatmeal.
*He started crawling this past week...just a couple of paces at a time, but he is making forward progress (before he could only go backwards)!
*He grabs everything close to him - you have to be careful when handling any liquids around him - he loves to knock them out of your hand and onto the floor. This happened last week with his antibiotic (it went everywhere and we had to get another prescription), and this morning with some hot coffee.
*He is 8.5 months old, almost 17 lbs, and about 28" tall. He looks about the same size as a lot of his 1+ year old friends!
See you next month when I have time to post again!

Two weeks ago we took Josiah to his first Royals game. Jason was very excited about it, while I was somewhat indifferent. :) Luckily our seats were in the shade and the weather was nice, so we all had a good time.
Here's Josiah happily showing off his new shoes!
Josiah is sitting up like a champ. He still falls over sometimes, but he is really getting the hang of it!
Last weekend we went to Colorado to visit friends (thanks Lazar & Tzvetanka!) and enjoy the great outdoors. Josiah was a trooper and didn't complain too much about all the new situations we put him in! While we were there, he perfected his rolling over skills. Jason got to see him roll over for the 1st time - and 2nd, and 3rd, etc. He has not rolled over since we've been home - prompting us to think we should move to Colorado!
Here's Josiah with his friend Alexander in a bike trailer. We thought it would be fun to go for a nice easy bike ride. Josiah disagreed. Maybe seven months is too soon to try something like this. Hopefully he won't be too traumatized!
While we were there, Josiah decided to start rock climbing. He is not yet walking or even crawling, but he was able to scale the north face of this rock.
Here he is looking for his next handhold. Notice how effortless he makes this look - he is a natural.
Other random news - while we were gone I finished knitting a baby blanket that I've been working on (off and on) for almost 3 years. I tried to calculate how much of that time was actually spent knitting, and I think it was approximately 25 hours, although that is a conservative estimate. When I told Jason that estimate, he wanted to know why I couldn't have finished it in a day. And then I punched him.
Have a great week everyone!

I weighed Josiah today, and he is getting close to 15 lbs! He is too long to fit on the baby scale, so he may actually be 15 lbs since his legs were partially hanging off the end of the scale.
Have a great week everyone! Jason has ONE more class left (tomorrow night), and then he is done with school!!! YAY!

Other stuff he's been doing lately...
