Tooth too late for Thanksgiving...

Connor had a great time over Thanksgiving. He got to visit both Grandparents, but unfortunately his tooth didn't show up in time for the Thanksgiving dinners. He had to stick with his boring baby food and bottle instead. Maybe next year he'll be able to pig out like everyone else.

Connor did a good job of traveling all the way to St. Louis, and although he had a couple rough nights (I think his tooth really hurt), he seemed to enjoy the trip.

Without further ado, a few pictures.

The Vernon family ready to pig out:

Grandpa is funny!

Don't drop me on my head! I use it for thinking!

Grandma Alice got me a high chair to make messes on!

The exersaucer Grammy Genie got for Connor:

Auntie Amanda and Uncle Ryan:


The tooth!

Connor did NOT like taking this picture. If you touch near that area he will open his mouth and pull away

Go Baby Go!

Up until now, Connor's technique for crawling has consisted of doing a push up and then lunging forwards. It got him where he wanted to go, but it was tons of work and was very slow. He's been doing it for so long that we figured that was going to be his technique and he may never do an actual factual technical crawl.

This last week something clicked in his brain and he's on a roll.

I took this video this morning:

Hooray Connor!

Daddy's birthday!!

Daddy turned 28 today. He always said that once he was out of high school for 10 years he'd officially feel old. Well, it's official now. He graduated high school when he was 18, and 10 years later he's a crotchety old man...

His plan for the day is to sit around in his PJ's all day and watch football. So far so good!

Yesterday was Connor's first Halloween! He scared everyone in his Lion costume, and we were surprised it didn't bother him as much as we figured it would. He was good about wearing it, and I think he liked how ferocious it made him look.
