Simon's 10 and 11 month photos

We've been a little behind (as usual) on keeping up on blog posts, but we remembered to take some photos of Simon at his 10 and 11 month marks. Since the last update he has started to walk - everywhere! Each month it is getting more and more difficult to keep him in one spot long enough to snap a photo. His mom is really sad that he will soon leave the "baby" room at school and move to the "toddler" room.



Halloween

To celebrate his first Halloween, Simon chose to dress as a penguin. He really enjoyed all the commotion around the neighborhood, but wasn't so crazy about having to wear a hat.





Simon invited his cousin Asher over for trick-or-treating.



Aunt Audrey and Uncle Bryan also came to join in the festivities.

Simon's Day at the Pumpkin Patch

We found a gorgeous day in October to take Simon to the pumpkin patch. We're not sure why, but he really likes pumpkins. Especially standing next them and hitting them. Some friends told us about Russell Farms in Noblesville, so we headed across town on a Saturday afternoon.



In addition to wandering around the corn maze and visiting with some of the animals on the farm, we took the hay ride to the pumpkin patch, and got pictures taken as a scarecrow.









2nd Annual End of Summer BBQ Spectacular

For the second year in our home here in Central Indiana, we invited as many people as we could over to cookout, relax, and visit (back in September). Everyone had a great time, and it's shocking to see the number and age of kids increase every year. Even Simon had a guest list!



We're very much looking forward to the 3rd annual bash next year, and even more one-handed pushups and freestyle yoga!

Kiawah Island - Beach Weekend 2011

Good friend Claire organized a weekend for a bunch of Duke friends at her parents' house on Kiawah Island, SC for Labor Day weekend. Simon was especially excited because he flew on a plane for the very first time! He did such a good job playing and sleeping on the plane, that all the other passengers were surprised there was a baby even there.



We had great fun at the beach on Saturday, and even though it rained part of the day on Sunday, Adam and big Simon played golf, dodging alligators on the course.





Little Simon had a couple of photo sessions with friends Katie and Brittany. As soon as we have those shots, we'll definitely share them.



All three of us are looking forward to Beach Weekend 2012!

Simon's 8 and 9 month photos

Since we've been busy with work and life, the blog has unfortunately taken a backseat. However, we did remember to take Simon's monthly photos each of the last 2 months. Since last update, Simon has gotten even more mobile - crawling on all fours, walking around the table, or pushing chairs around the kitchen. His bottom two teeth are almost fully in and the top two have just started to make an appearance.







Look Mom, no hands!

Simon's 7 Month Photo Shoot

We took some photos back at the end of July for Simon's 7 month session, but are just now getting around to posting them. His big move in the past month is pulling up - on the chair, on the coffee table, in his crib...







We also had some professional family shots taken in July, so I've included some of the better shots from that session as well.
