Oma and Opa Visit

A couple weeks ago Patrick and I got the privilege of having Patrick's Oma and Opa, Bridget and Horst, over for the weekend. They were visiting from Wisconsin for about 2 1/2 weeks. Miles loved spending time with his great grandparents. This was the second time I met his grandparents with the first being a few days before our wedding. We had a blast just hanging out, exploring downtown Olympia, and talking and sharing stories. Bridget taught me how to make some amazing German food. We made Rouladen, Spaetzle, and Plum Cake. It was so yummy and we've officially added it to our dinner routine. Hopefully we'll be able to see them in the midwest sometime soon!

This is a giant dragonfly eating another bug. I almost walked into it and was really grossed out, and then Pat had to get this picture. You can even see the fur on it's back. EW!

7, 8, and 9 Months

I'm finally posting the changing table pictures that I've been too exhausted to post. It's funny how Miles looks totally the same, just bigger.

7 months

8 Months

9 months

Miles has three teeth now, two on the bottom and one on top. We call him our hillbilly baby. He has three more on top coming in at the same time and I felt another one this morning on the bottom just beneath the gum. He's been cruising around the coffee table and crawling everywhere lately! I can hardly keep up. And just over the weekend he started standing for 5 to 10 seconds without holding onto anything. Looks like he'll be walking in no time, then I'll really be exhausted from chasing him around!
