We celebrated Father's Day this weekend, and Jason declared "I wish every day was Father's Day." Guess he had a good day. :)
You may remember for Jason's first Father's Day I took some pictures of his baby boy fishing. They were a big hit, so I decided to do something similar this year. I got some Cardinals shirts printed with Clayton and the boys' birth years on the back, and we set out to a baseball field to snap some pictures (again with the help of Grandma and Grandpa Lang). It was a hot day and Jack was only half interested in cooperating, but nevertheless we are pleased with how they turned out.
This post is a bit delayed (Charlie turned nine months old last Saturday), but we were away for an adult getaway weekend in Kansas City with the Ashers and this week has been nothing short of hectic. Jack and Charlie stayed with both sets of grandparents while we were gone (one each night) and they did great. This was our first weekend away from Charlie and we missed both of them, but it was nice to get away. We had a relaxing weekend with shopping for the gals, golf for the guys, sleeping in (kind of) and staying out late (sort of). Anyway, onto the Charlie update.
He's also pulling up on everything and doing some cruising as well. We even found him standing in his crib Friday afternoon before we left for KC. Hot shot. This guy is fearless and he holds on to one piece of furniture with just the tips of his fingers as he stretches to reach for another piece nearby. He's often successful but when he's not, he just plops on his bottom and then tries again. He is determined!
I think those are the updates for the month - it was definitely a big month for our big guy! As you can see our monthly photo shoots are getting more and more challenging. Definitely not a one-person job anymore with Mister Squirmy!

Last Sunday at our Memorial Day party our friend Jill mentioned her sister Julie was looking for a second dog. Her first dog is a timid little dog (Princess) that was rescued from a puppy mill and needs a playmate. Plus Julie's daughter, who just graduated from high school, wanted a running mate. Jill sent Julie a picture and they agreed to come get her the next morning for a trial. Jack watched her leave and when I said she was going to live with Julie, Meghan and Princess he said "she can live here with me." Since then he's asked about once/day "where's Maggie?" We just remind him that she went to live with her new friend Princess and he moves on.
I got an update Monday night and they said Maggie cried and paced all day. They took her to a dog park twice (about the number of times she's been in her 6 year life) and took her on two walks, which seemed to help. The update on Wednesday was that she had settled in and is always snuggling with her new BFF Princess, and Julie put a picture on Facebook of the doggies taking over her bed.
We are so happy we were able to find such a great new home for Mags. I know she will be so happy having a buddy and getting spoiled with walks and dog park visits and just general love and affection!!
