Cuddling up with Daddy. Rowan kept wiggling himself into Josh for a little snuggle.

Rowan is very excited about Gram, G-dawg and Uncle Casey visiting soon! He can't wait to see everyone!
Concentrating very hard while playing with a new toy
In the last month, Rowan has really taken off with his signing. He has even made a few up on his own. He can now sign more, please, airplane, all done, and 'later' (this one he made up himself). He signs drink, ball, book, music and help a little less frequently, but we are still working on those. Here he was signing please over and over because he desperately wanted to touch the camera. He likes pushing the button to review all the pictures we have taken.
Rowan also loves to clean up...he loves anything that involves cleaning. It might be because that is all he sees his mother do. Sometimes I think he spills his cheerios just so I have to get down the dust-buster. He LOVES pretending he is vacuuming. He even makes a vacuuming sound.

How much do you love Auntie Katie?

Katie brought this shirt back for Rowan from the DR when he was just a tiny newborn. I couldn't imagine him ever fitting in to it. It does have little shorts that go with it, but you know how he feels about pants these days, and it was almost bath time so I opted to let him run like this. This was his answer to my question "how much do we love auntie Katie?". Katie, we can't wait to see you soon!

On the move

So it took Rowan 13.5 months to figure out how to crawl, but watch he is on the move. My dad came over today to help us finish up the baby proofing, and I am sure I will discover 700 other things that need to be picked up or put away. If these pictures had sound you would hear a lot of huffing and puffing and a bit of grunting as he worked really hard to get to me and the camera in my hands.

Working so hard his tongue is hanging out

So happy to finally get close...I kept moving to make it harder for him
So sad...looking at the cabinet longingly since it is now baby proofed and can't be flung open.

Sorry Grandparents

I have been slacking on my blog posting. I knew it was getting bad because I started receiving threats from the avid readers (the grandparents) reminding me I better pick up the slack. So here are a few randoms from the last few weeks. None are great photographic works of art, but hopefully will appease those near and far who miss Rowan.

Snack time is way more fun when you wear your snack all over you face...and shirt... and hands and them wipe them all over mommy!
Lately Rowan has decided he does not want to wear his pants (I will spare you the comment about like father like son) after battling with him after a recent diaper change, he and Josh decided it would be way more fun to wear his shorts on his head instead.
These are just two sweet ones I took this morning. I love the way he is sitting with his little legs crossed. He has been obsessed with all things that have wheels. One of his trains actually had to read books with us last night.
