Hanging out at Bubby and Honey's

 Silas gets to hang out at Bubby and Honey's house Wednesday - Friday will Mommy goes to work.

Since I had the camera with me from the trip to the DBG, I took a few of Silas before I left for work.

Bubby and Honey got Silas his very own laptop to play with!

He also has a really cool ball that is much smaller than his red one, and easier to play with!

I think he enjoys beating on the screen door more than anything else though!

And crawling in circles on the floor!

Silas loves hanging out at Honey and Bubby's house.

Silas at the Botanical Garden

 Silas and I have been trying to go places to walk around early in the mornings. This week we went to the Desert Botanical Gardens.

 We went with our good friend Nikki! Silas loves Nikki. She tries to come with us when we go out because she like to walk around too!

 We had a really good time in the butterfly exhibit. We spent a lot of time looking at all of the butterflies. Silas was so fascinated by all the brilliant colors!

 There were a lot of people in the butterfly enclosure so it was a little crowded. Silas has the tolerance for large crowds like his mom. Not much.

 Silas makes a beautiful butterfly!

 So does Nikki!

 I don't know about me though! I look awful squinty! The sun was out in full force!

This little guy was such a show off. Silas was laughing at him as he posed for us!

We had a good time and are glad we have a membership. We are looking forward to going again soon!

Silas at the park

 We went to Rio Vista park in Peoria! The weather was beautiful, but chilly. It had rained the day before and cooled the air down quite a bit.

 The Sand was perfect for digging in and crawling around and "walking" barefoot.

 We even took his big red ball and rolled it around. We made a few friends who wanted to play too.

 After a while, we decided to check out the equipment, but we prefered to crawl on the spongey play area.

We had a good time at the park. We went down a few slides and swung together on one of the big kid swings. I can't wait until he is walking on his own and able to use the equipment so I can snap pictures of him playing!

10 months old!

Today Silas is 10 months old!

Why does it seem like this year is slipping from my fingers? Silas is such a big boy now. He is crawling up a storm and going faster than I ever thought he'd be able to. His babbling has increased and he constantly has something to say! It sounds like he is saying several words already, but we know it's just the way his sounds form and they have no meaning yet. I know that once he really calls me Mama and means it, I'll probably cry.

His favorite toys right now are balls. He has several that he plays with including large ping pong type balls and nubby sensory ones. He also likes to play with the cats' ball toys that have bells in them. He zooms across the room for them and gets a kick out of it when he throws them!

I wonder if he'll start walking before his first birthday. He is pulling himself on everything and he can also stand unassisted for nearly half a minute until he realizes what he is doing and then he falls down.

He takes his hair brushing routine very seriously!

Who's a big boy? Me! That's who!

Silas loves the wheels on his truck!

O.k. Mom and Dad. We're done here!
