9 month
Micah is changing so much every day! It’s always so amazing to watch them learn new abilities and new things about the world around them.

The roly poly now weighs 17 lbs 15 oz and is 27.25 inches long.

Teeth #3 and #4 appeared this month. He’s jabbering a lot- mainly “ra ra ra” and “ba ba ba”, but with the occasional “da da da” and “ma ma ma”. Frank and I are competing to see whose name Micah will say first. He won out last time so I’m determined to get a solid “mama” out first!

Micah is army crawling everywhere!! We are busy these days chasing him down and keeping him out of Mya’s water bowl. The baby gates are now out of storage and we’re teaching Alaina to keep her small toys off the floor.

He can also go from sitting up to lying on his belly, and can clap and wave, which his big sister loves getting him to do.

 

Independence Day

We made the trip up to Michigan to celebrate the 4th with the Caseys. The weather was gorgeous, the food delicious, the company fabulous, and Micah and Alaina loved spending time with their cousins.
On the last day, it finally warmed up enough for the kids to play in the sprinkler. Connor and Elizabeth jumped right in, while A needed a little coaxing (and even then, only ran on the very outskirts).

But after Uncle Jim made some water balloons, she really got into it and had fun chasing her cousins around.

The wise ones just stood back and watched the show.
