Cruisin for a bruisin

Today Connor started cruising! I guess he likes to celebrate leap year.

Sleigh ride

Today, we went on a sleigh ride through the National Elk Refuge. It was cold. I think the elk were neat, but I really didn't look much because my eyes got frozen shut! Connor wore 2 hats, sweatshirt (he doesn't own a coat), mittens, 2 pairs of pants, and in his pumpkin seat with 2 blankets over him. This is a picture that I took of Ed and Madeline before he covered both of them up completely underneath that wool blanket. I'm not sure if Madeline even saw the elk.Other than the frigid cold, it was a pretty great experience! Did I mention the cold??We also went to the National Museum of Wildlife Art. They had a fun kids area, including dress-up clothes:

8 month update

Happy Valentine's Day! Connor is 8 months old today. He is doing great! He likes to stand up anywhere he can, but he hasn't started cruising yet. He is a quick crawler and a good eater. He loves bath time and has a great smile and laugh. He has the same 6 teeth, but the amount of drool he produces makes me think there are more on the way. He gets to go to swim lessons now too (at the Y), and he loves the water. His legs are kicking about the whole time, and then he always takes a good nap on the way home. He has started to notice the dogs more lately, but his favorite entertainment is definitely still Madeline. It is so cute to watch him watch her!
