One of mommy and daddy's best friends, Kate Sagehorn, and her mommy, both came to a baby shower for me before I was born. They gave mommy a bunch of beautiful gifts, but her favorite was a sweater and hat set from a small boutique in Chicago. (they also gave me a REALLY pretty and soft bib, but its so amazing that mommy won't let me wear it because its too nice to get dirty...kind of silly for a bib, but I can't talk yet so I can't convince mommy to let me wear it).
Anyway its a little chilly in Denver today so mommy put the hat on me when we went to the grocery store. Five (count em!) people walked up to us and told mommy what a cute hat I was wearing! She decided to take a picture of me in it just to show it off.
Thanks again, Auntie Kate!

I've been practicing crawling. The books tell mommy I should be doing this in my 8th month, so I figured its time to get on the ball. Many times when she comes to get me from my nap, I'm practicing rocking on my hands and knees....so I thought I'd show you how close I am to crawling!

We had a great week together and now I'm sad they are gone. Before they left, we took this picture together in our matching "Good things come in small packages" shirts that our great grandma Shirley bought for us. I think we're just about the cutest cousins around!

Ever since we moved to Colorado, it seems like mommy takes me to Home Depot almost daily. We've had to buy parts for our dryer, shelving, brackets, paint samples... I think my college savings is being spent at Home Depot. Bummer.
The other day I actually tried to fall asleep on one of the push-dollys. I was pretty desperate to get out of there and get my nap. So of course, mommy managed to (almost) catch it all on camera.

Today was a pretty fun day. I'm refining my ability to say "DaDa", and also this afternoon I started clapping on command. Mommy's been working on that with me for over a month now. She claps first and then tells me its my turn (and then usually takes my arms and makes them clap). But today I totally surprised her by clapping back on my own. It literally made her jump for joy!
Mommy's response was so great that I'm practicing clapping at random times now. In these two videos she took of me, I'm practicing my "da da" and my claps.

This weekend daddy was home and we had so much fun! Saturday we went to Boulder, Colorado where there was a football game between CU and Kansas. It seems like mommy, daddy, and all of my family out here are big fans of KU, so they're getting me started early on my fan experience. I guess I don't have a choice.
Grandpa Bill bought me this KU Cheerleader outfit, and then we all headed up to the tailgate party. I even got to see the KU band and the real KU cheerleaders (they thought I was very cute when I danced along to their songs).
My first KU experience was alot of fun. I think I'll have to be a fan now forever! Rock Chalk!

Mommy and I found a park out here in Denver, real close to our house. We have been cooped up much of the week unpacking (I'm a big help to mommy even though I don't technically unpack things) so yesterday we went and found a park. It was super fun and I've officially decided that swinging is my new favorite thing.
Check me out!
Check me out!

Last night mommy, daddy and I said goodbye to all of our friends in their bible study...tonight we said goodbye to the Burtons. Even though all the parents were a bit subdued tonight, I had alot of fun playing with Tyler and Shannon. They even lined us up for a picture (Shannon-2 mos, me - almost 8 mos, Tyler - 18 mos).
Mommy and daddy aren't the only ones sad to be saying goodbye to their friends! In addition to Shannon and Ty, I have to say goodbye to my pals from bible study: Autumn, Ashlyn, Nathan, Reagan, Camryn, Tyler, Callie and Noah. On top of all of that, I have to say goodbye to my new cousin Anna! What a bummer...
Anyway here are some pics from tonight. Mom was pretty excited about them.
