Closing up shop

We should probably just be better at writing in our journals, but Jenni and I have decided to start printing our blog posts as a book to help document the things that are happening in our lives/family. In order to make this easier, we've decided to merge our two blogs, so I won't be making anymore posts on this blog and from now on you can find my random thoughts interspersed with pictures of Charlie on Jenni's blog (but I guess "our blog" would now be the proper term.

Also, for anyone interest in my thoughts on computers, programming, and other technical mumbo jumbo, I'll still be posting on my Code by Dave blog.

Where did 7 months go?

A few weeks ago Jenni posted about Charlie being 6 months old and this past Sunday he turned 7 months. It made me stop and think about how much the little guy has already grown up and changed from the tiny bundle of joy that we brought home from the hospital (just look how little he was).

If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing the little guy recently, he's already sitting up, expresses his curiosity by grabbing at everything, and still smiles at everyone like their his best friend. He's even started to take an interest in being involved with the things that Jenni and I do (even though it's usually easier without his "help"). Jenni and I have loved every minute of it (especially now that he's sleeping through the night thanks to a book that I now swear by) and we hope that the the rest of his first year is just as fun as these first 7 months have been.

A day at the Zoo

So a few weeks ago we went to the Tucson Zoo during one of my Off-Fridays. Jenni and I had a lot of fun, but Charlie wasn't overly excited about the experience. Even though I had driven by that area more times than I can remember, I never realized that there was even a zoo there. I think that Jenni summed it up really well when she said, "I never realized that there were llamas so close to In-n-Out." We got a family pass, so hopefully Charlie will start enjoy the experience a little more. You can check out all of the pictures on PWA or Facebook.
