John in the big kid swing!
Oh, and as of yesterday, we won't have to drive to the park as often. Look what Mike brought home!!!! I have been wanting a swing set for the last year or two, but Mike didn't want to take up too much yard space. But last week a friend of ours mentioned that his neighbor was moving and didn't want to deal with moving their swing set so we got a $1,300 swing set for $200!!! You can't really see in the picture but the back side has a rock climbing wall and there are monkey bars across where the swings are. Another friend of ours is giving us their baby swing that their son outgrew, so everyone will be able to swing at once! Woo hoo! Unfortunately due to the rain today John hasn't gotten to play with it yet...maybe tomorrow.
Here are a few more pictures from the girls birthday party

height: 28 3/4 inches (32%)
weight: 19 lbs 3 oz (16%)
height: 29 1/4 inches (49%)
weight: 20 lbs 12 oz (40%)
Apparently Rebecca is shrinking. :) At her 9 month check up she weighed 21 lb 8 oz. The doctor said not to worry about it though. As long as she is eating and drinking normally and filling diapers on a regular basis she is fine. We go back when they are 15 months old.

You can barely see it, but John learned how to write his name! Well, I guess technically he learned how to write the letters in his name. I had to remind him what came next. I am so proud of him though. He knows all his letters and all the sounds they make. Now he is writing them. We have tried working on reading a tiny bit, but we're not quite there yet. I am such an obsessive reader I can't wait for the day he can read one of his books to me!And just for a little blast from the past, here is John at his 1st birthday party

John fishing at the Magic House
Taking a drive...notice how his whole right side is soaked from playing in the water
Natalie enjoying her birthday dinner of lasagna
Rebecca loved her lasagna too
one of my favorite pics of Rebecca
Apparently during his nap John took his shirt off and then put it back on inside out and backwards :)
Here's a super short video clip of Natalie taking her 1st steps (if you have your volume turned up, please ignore Rebecca's screams in the background. She was just being cranky.) :)
