July 4th - The Monkey and The Monk

The fourth of July was fun this year. Nicky is just getting to that age where he has a lot of fun visiting. We went over to Dad and JM's house and had hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill. Then we pretty much sat around and watched the Monk marathon on TV and my little monkey in the living room. We took lots of photos, and I tried to narrow them down to the best for the online photoalbum, but heck, they're all so good! I did manage to only upload 14 pictures today though... :)

Here are a few favorites:

Nicky is a cool dude ready to go on a summer roadtrip...

Here's Nicky hiding from JM's camera. This boy knows what a camera is already! I think he's saying, "Hey, take a picture of that guy instead will ya?"

Then we went outside for a photo-op during the sunset.

Our very favorite photo of the day though was this one:

Isn't he just adorable? We have his 4month pediatric appointment this Friday. I'm not looking forward to that. He's old enough now to really be pissed off about the shots. I am happy to get his new measurements though. I don't even have a ballpark figure for his weight now. He could be anywhere between 15 and 20 pounds! His 6 month outfits are barely fitting him now. He's wearing 6-12 month socks! (And actually some brands of those are too small!!) I'll post to let you know the results on Friday. We're also going to ask the doctor if we can start giving him cereal. Wish us luck!

Wow!!! Nicholas is quite awesome, isn't he! Can't wait to visit again----Can not wait!!!

Good news here! The garage is cleaned out---really cleaned out! Lots of fireworks to look at last night including
someone on the street behind us setting off really professional fireworks after midnight---what a surprise! The dogs were totally traumatized though, even Jack scrambled inside the house when we all went out back to see the show.
Glad you all had such a nice 4th of July too.
Love you all bunches and bunches!
