Big talker

Josiah seems to be adding more words to his vocabulary every day. He started saying 'no' a couple of weeks ago but he says it in the sweetest way possible (most of the time). And now he says "no way". His affirmative response to things is "yeah" - but lately he has been saying "oh yeah". His most recent word is "cookie". Jason made his mom's famous ginger snaps this week, and now he cannot walk into the kitchen without saying "cookie? cookie?". It is cute but hopefully he will realize that there are other foods besides cookies. I think he also said "coffee" this week - he is obsessed with Jason's coffee mugs and thermos. He loves to just carry them around (don't worry, we only give him empty ones to carry). I will get a recording of him talking and get it posted one day soon, but wanted to let everyone know how he is progressing!

Since my last post my bestest friend Genevieve came to visit (and we decided on the spur of the moment to paint our kitchen), my parents came to visit and brought my nephew & niece (Kason & Ava), and we went with friends to see Disney's train tour (including a 10 minute 3-D movie trailer) to promote their Christmas Carol movie coming out in November. Here are some pics:

Summer fun

Summer is flying by! We are loving the weather and trying to get outside as much as possible. Here are some of the things we've been up to (I'm listing the ones we have pictures for):

We visited my side of the family for July 4th.


My family came here on July 10th/11th and we were in a fishing tournament.

I took Josiah to a BBQ at his friend Isaac's house on 7/18.


Got Josiah's picture made:

He must have been really tired, because he thought this was hysterical. I was talking to his Elmo toothbrush:
