Summers here

And boy have we gotten busy. It mostly has something to do with a mobile boy and a husband that has been taking a lot of business trips. And since getting things done seems to be impossible some days I have been doing fun things instead. Things that keep Micah entertained. I'm sure you all relate! 

Over Memorial day we headed out to Destin Beach on the 'west' coast of Florida to see Ubers oldest brother and his family. They hadn't met Micah yet so it was a fun trip and Micah got to meet his cousin (1st? 2nd? always forget how that works) She is 4 months older than him. It was highly entertaining since she alternated between trying to kiss him and wrestling/sitting on him. Micah didn't really appreciate either scenario but the rest of us thought it was funny...
 Micah has been enjoying food. He especially likes it when we have noodles since my Dad drapes them across his head... highly entertaining to watch him try and locate them and then eat them.
 These two are getting along great. Brinkley is finally seeing the perks of having him around. I came around the corner the other day and Brinkley was helping himself to Micah's Cheerios... not that Micah seemed to mind I think they have  deal worked out - Cheerios for pulling hair...
 He's been 'mobile' for a few months doing a rather special sit/move forward/sit thing but it turned into true crawling a little over a week ago and he gets faster every day. At the same time he started crawling he figured out pulling up. He still hasn't realized he can pull up on anything (thank goodness). It was a big surprise to walk into this last Friday. He was upset and yet still very proud of himself! I think the upset part might of been he wasn't sure how to sit back down.
 Or last few weekends... and probably most of the ones to follow have been spent out at the beach. We pack up early and drive out with the kayaks then we all go out and when Micah is over it we take turns heading out and bumming around. This is actually on the inlet- the true beach is on the other side of the dunes behind me. But this side has calmer water and less people. Two weekends ago Dad and Uber followed a dolphin around and last weekend Uber saw a sea turtle. Micah LOVES the water and wears himself out... if you notice he's asleep in the tent. I should be getting our beater camera back soon so we can take it out on the water and get more pictures.
 I've been terrible about formal pictures so most everything of him is snapshots- need to try and get a better shot of him in this outfit though... it's seriously awesome.
 Mom made him this shirt a few weeks ago out of fabric I bought for his sea turtle quilt and then didn't use.
 The baby Levi's are from his Uncle and the converses are from his Cousin. The whole thing cracks me up!
He's growing up so fast!


  1. Thanks so much for the baby post. I love seeing him doing all the different things. The standing up in the crib is darling, he looks pleased with himself. See mom what I can do!! Very fun post, feel free to do more.

  2. It is SO much fun watching your Micah grow and learn new things! As much as I love all your crafty ways... I absolutely ADORE seeing photo's of Micah even more! Great post Jess! I'm with Norma, "feel free to do more"! ;-)

  3. Aw, so fun! I'm jealous of your frequent beach outings. Although, I guess there are beaches nearby. Great Lake, not ocean, but it'll do! As soon as we get back from our trip, that is...first plane ride for Peter!

  4. He is so adorable. Can't wait to pinch him. Which he probably won't like since he didn't like the kisses and the wrestling. But I'll do it anyway :)

  5. He is growing quickly. Going to go cry now.
