September 2012 was full of trips to Bloomington, Nashville and D.C.  We first went back to bloomington for a good friends wedding.  Of course the only picture I come back with is this one:

You’re welcome.  It was a short Friday-Sunday trip, but we were so glad we could make it to see our friends Sarah and Collins get married!  Congrats guys!  Then we turned around and headed to Nashville for another wedding, but I have enough pictures to turn that into a post.  So stay turned.  We also went down to D.C. for a day to do a practice run for the Army 10-Miler we had coming up in October.  We couldn’t do an exact replica run since that course shut down many streets:

But we did run around the Mall and went up to see the white house! I also don’t have many pictures of the actual race since they didn’t allow cameras,  but we had a great time!  We found a baby sitter to come to our hotel at 7:00am on a sunday to watch wilek while phil and I went to partake in the festivities.  Phil had hurt his back a few days before the race, so he took it super easy….by running with me! haha.  I am the slowest runner ever.  But we both survived.  I made us take a walk break around mile 8, but otherwise ran/jogged the whole thing!  Go us!

On the weekend we did stay home in Baltimore, we went to the Zoo for the first time!  I didn’t snap any pictures of animals, because I’m an idiot, but I did get a few on the carousel, climbing in an old turtle shell and hanging out in a tunnel under water.

Wil has loved learning to walk and walks nearly 100% of the time now.  Every once in awhile he’ll get nervous with an incline or going down a hill and will go back on his butt or crawl.  But hes upright most of the time now!!

Barney say ‘Go Os’.

Im starting to get sick of this whole ‘weeks’ thing.  So we will switch over to months – Wil is about 3.5 months now.  The first 3 months of life are sometimes referred to as the 4th trimester (Which mathematically makes no sense. The 4th quadmester maybe?).  Basically Wil is still adjusting to being outside the womb and has no idea what the f*ck is going on until about this time.  We’ve spent a lot of time soothing, swaddling, and singing in the last few months and I think Wil has finally decided that the real word ain’t so bad.  He cries less and less and is smiling more and more.  Id go as far to say hes a honest-to-goodness ‘BABY’.

Exhibit A:

Blurry, but happy, baby.  Hes laughing too – we have a few videos of it that Ill get Phil to post soon.  The last few weeks have been pretty uneventful.  I go to a baby play group once a week now and we are still taking lots of walks.  We STILL dont have the Jetta back, so I stay pretty close to home most days and then we run errands at night or on weekends.  Im very excited to get a car back, then I can run errands during the day and spend more quality time at home.  Hopefully we’ll get it next week.  Its been 68 days since we were a two car family. Sheesh.

Anyway, like I said, pretty uneventful.  Wil loves to sit out on the stoop and watch the leaves blow and cars drive by.

Barney enjoys it too.  He also watches the car go by from the couch inside, but the other day he fell behind the couch into the window well and couldnt get out. I thought it was pretty hilarious.

We go to the farmers market on sunday mornings.  Its under the overpass in downtown baltimore.

We went to a street fair where we needed an emergency clothing change.  This is what was in the diaper bag:

Yellow short-sleeved onesie. Blue jacket and dinosaur socks. We bought the leggings at the fair because it was cold.  We looked for a hat but couldnt find one.  Parents of the year over here.  We also snapped this gem – this one is for you, mom:

We’ve gone hiking a few times:

Other than that, Its been some of this:

And a little of that:

Life is good, my friends!

22 pictures in this post people!! Im getting better!  I feel like you can even see it in the progression of photos – Wil is no newborn anymore! Hes so alert and interactive now.  He loves to study faces and make noises.  He is starting to grab things and then put them directly in his mouth. Hes rolling over more frequently and loves it when I sing songs to him.
