As you may have noticed, my picture taking has slowed down considerably recently. That's because Aaron is so cute and so fun and he is always laughing and showing me new expressions and being so playful and it's just wonderful! So I grab my camera to show you that I have the most adorable child in all of the world and I get this.
I can not get a good picture of this kid and all the pictures end up looking the same (which is to say not good) with Aaron just staring at the camera like a deer in the headlights.
But I know I am moments away from hearing from an unhappy grandparent, so I figured I should get something on the Blog. I can also tell you that I'm not the only frustrated Allen in this house. Aaron is still not crawling. Frustrating. He's scooting backwards. Frustrating. He can get up on all fours and rock, but when he tries to move forward he falls to the side. Frustrating. He can stand, but he can't walk. Frustrating.
So he's taken to sticking out his tongue instead. His tongue is really out of his mouth more than it is in it and he's started to get creative with it. He can make several different noises with it and he can lick his lips. Finding new things to do with his tongue has taken the sting out of not being able to master this mobility thing.

I love all of his faces! Isn't it a fun age?!?! I actually am not going this weekend. I am so torn. I really want to, but it is the only weekend until December that Flint has off and we are planning to spend time together and time as a family. I soooooo want to meet you in person. Are you going with your church group or by yourself?

He looks so pleased with his discovery of sticking out his tongue and making noises!
You're allowed to talk about yourself too, you know --like where you're going this weekend! Is this the Billy Graham's daughter thing?

Love---OH mom/gma
