11 months old

Jimmer is 11 months old today. He is doing great. He still likes to eat a lot (about 8 baby food jars a day) and still has no teeth. Lately he's learned how to go down the stairs on his belly (which is nice for me) and has not yet learned to like his carseat. At 12 months...we're turning that carseat around! Jimmer likes to shake and throw toys and fling them across the room and chase them. He has not learned to walk yet, but it will probably be sooner than later. He likes to walk with anything that will work as a walker. In the pictures above Jimmer decided he could push the ladder ball game as a walker around my parents' backyard.

Jimmer's first plane ride to St. Louis
Jimmer's first zoo trip (in St. Louis) - He did have fun...he had just woken up here and looks greasy from the sunblock :)

We've had a busy few weeks lately. Unfortunately we do not have a lot of pictures to show for it. Oh well. James, Jimmer and I flew to St. Louis in the beginning of May for James' sister Carolyn's wedding and we spent a week out there hanging out with the Rees family. We had a good time, but traveling with Jimmer was a bit of a challenge. He screamed quite a bit on the flight to St. Louis and then while we were there he did not sleep well or do well at all when we had to leave him to go to the temple. But, at least he acted just as we suspected. :)

Then a few days after we got home my brother John and his family came to Utah to visit, so we had about 5 days of fun with the Farish family doing things like going to the Hogle Zoo, going to Pirate Island (like Chuck E. Cheese), having a BBQ, going shooting and roasting s'mores. Luckily while John & Keri were here, we were able to get Jimmer to stay asleep at my parents' house and then transfer Jimmer home to his crib when we were done playing games and stuff each night. I was shocked that he stayed asleep every time we took him home. I think St. Louis trip helped him learn to sleep a little better in places other than his own crib. Although we've had a lot of fun lately, we are happy to take a little break from vacationing for a while and get back to our normal lives. Now we just need to plan something for our anniversary next Thursday...I'm thinking Hawaii.

Bath Time

How come his best smiles are in the bath tub when he has no clothes on? Stinker!
