Weekend Fun

This weekend has flown by, and I was able to capture some moments on my camera. On Friday we had an exciting trip to Target to purchase Ian some shoes and some 12 month clothes (he's already wearing 9 month clothes and he could very well wake up tomorrow and not be able to fit into any of them...I can't believe how quickly he is growing!). Since it is starting to get cooler, Ian might actually be able to wear some of the pants and long-sleeved shirts he has one time before he gets too big for them. We took full advantage of the cooler weather, and he wore his first windsuit on Friday. As you can see, he was looking sporty. I also introduced him to the sport his Daddy is so passionate about with his first soccer ball. He studied it intently and enjoyed the fact that it made noise when he hit it...maybe he will be a keeper since he couldn't keep his hands off the ball. My parents came over on Friday evening for dinner, and Ian enjoyed the time with his Grammie and Granddad. On Saturday, we met our friends' (Lance and Ronni) little boy, Brady, for the first time. He is 4 1/2 months old and truly adorable. Ian was interested in trying to touch Brady and listened intently while Brady told Ian stories only the two of them could understand. I think that the adults enjoyed the time together more than the boys did, but it was wonderful to get our little guys together for the first time. Today we went to lunch with Phil's parents, and Ian enjoyed being passed back and forth between MomMom and DadDad. Ian still hasn't cut any teeth, but I am praying to the Gods who hold uninterrupted sleep in the palm of their hands that they come through any day now. I shouldn't be complaining; I'm not the one with teeth trying to make their way to the surface. I'm just sleep-deprived, not sleep-deprived AND cutting teeth, right?

"You talking to me?"
Finding his mobile more interesting than the soccer ball at the moment.
"Now, what am I supposed to do with this exactly?"
Ian reaching for Brady's hand. Sorry these pictures didn't come out so well, but it was a little difficult to make sure Ian didn't fall over backward, lean back far enough to get both of them in the picture, and take the picture when both of them were looking at the same time.

So handsome and happy in his overalls and new shoes.
Sitting in the high chair at lunch today. It's amazing to me that he is big enough to be sitting in a high chair, playing with toys, and finding new toys all around him (the menu, silverware, flowers, sugar packets, etc.). He also thought that the edge of the table was a good teether before I distracted him with a sippy cup.
