I received a new camera a few months ago and I haven't been putting it to good use. So yesterday we had a gorgeous sunny, spring like day and I just had to go out in it. I was just beautiful. Duncan got to play on the grass for the first time and he loved it! He was very curious about all the different textures and pine needles. My father-in-law helped me when I got the camera and put it on auto so it takes decent pictures. I'm hoping this spring to start using my camera more and practicing more in a manual mode and screwing around with all the settings. Until then though these pictures will do...

Duncan turned 8 months old on Saturday. He his getting so big! I feel like he is less and less a baby and becoming more and more and little boy. He has mastered crawling on his hands and knees. He can get anywhere he wants to super quick. His favorite spot as of today is the ficus tree. He crawls as fast as he can because he knows that we are coming after him to stop him! He loves to walk around everything. He will stand up whenever he can. He sleeps about 9 hours every night, gets up to drink a 6 oz bottle and get a diaper change, then goes back to bed for at least another 2+ hours. He still only has his 2 bottom teeth. He is becoming super fun to play with and everyday is better than the one before!
His current love is his rubber ducky. He carries him around like a pacifier every where.
This is his new rocket ship. He Loves it! He likes to ride on it and push all the cool buttons

Ahhh! I can't believe he's 7 months old already! He is getting soooo big. I missed his 6 month update so I'll give you some stats. He is almost 20 lbs, 27 1/2 in long. He is in the 85% for height and 35% or weight! We've upped the solid food intake though so hopefully his weight will catch up to his height! He is loving all foods. He was kind of picky when he first started eating solids but now he'll pretty much eat whatever I give him. He started crawling around thanksgiving and in the last two weeks has started to pull himself up on everything! Here are a few pictures to show off his new skills.
And here's one of all the boys hanging out!

We went to Greenbluff about a month ago and I picked a bunch of apples with the intent to make applesauce for Duncan. The apples have been sitting on my kitchen table just starring at me. I finally decided to make applesauce today. I've been putting it off because I didn't want to peel them all and steam them and the purée. It just seemed like a long task. So today I realized I could make it in the vitamix. Super easy! I made applesauce first and I tasted ok but then I decided to make some apple juice. After I made the apple juice I decided that it tastes way better than the sauce so I made the sauce into more juice! And I did it all during one nap!

So this post is worth about a million words! It's been awhile since I've blogged so this is going to be a bit of a picture dump.
First, we went over to the west coast and visited some friends Kim, Eddie, and Danica. Danica was born about 15 hours before duncan. They became close friends pretty fast. Duncan was still recovering from a little bit of a cold though so he had to wear a mask! Unfortunatly the mask didn't stop Duncan from sharing his germs and I think we got them a little sick. Sorry.
After visiting Kim, Eddie, and Danica we headed down to Olympia to visit Amy, Sam, and Parker. The boys enjoyed some time together while watching Elmo. Then Parker tried to teach Duncan how to play ball.
Duncan still loves his bath time!
This last weekend we were in Couer d'Alene for Kim and Ben's little boy Brayden's baby blessing. Duncan was enjoying singing but then he got tired of it and decided to take a quick nap on the hymnal.
After the blessing we went over for some delicious lunch and Duncan learned how to be a cowboy!
5 Months Old! Can you believe it? I can't. I feel like I just gave birth to this little boy yesterday. He is becoming so much fun though. He just started to roll over both directions a few days ago so he is our little rollie pollie now. He rolled across the entire living room tonight. He loves it. He is constantly laughing, screeching or eating something. He's pretty much always happy, even when he's getting tired and ready for a nap. Taking pictures of him laying still is becoming a thing of the past.
