Walking! 9 months old!

So on the 14th, a week ago today Amulek was 9 months old. And we had his checkup- just for an update- he is 27 1/4 inches long, 19 lbs and 4 oz. and VERY healthy. He did'nt gain very much from 6 to 9 months, he has really slimmed up since he is ALL OVER the place. Im telling you the kid is NON STOP! But I love he is so active.
And yes Amulek has started to walk!!! UH OH!! He has taken one step towards me before, he started that like 3 weeks ago but after the one step he'd always squat down and reach up for me, but haha yesterday I was trying to do some work on the computer and he wasn't happy with that, so what did he do.. he starts climbing the side of my chair... he climbed up onto the foot rest while holding on to the armrest, then proceeded to climb so his feet were on the seat, still holding on to the armrest!! I laughed and was shocked of course and I asked him "what are you doin' kid?!?" he just smiled, but I took him down and placed him standing on the floor which of course made him upset, and so out of anger he took 3 steps right back to me and once he was in my arms he let out a huff mix laugh like ha! I got my way. (He IS so much like his mother)
So he has begun walking. How should I feel? 9 MONTH-walking, nothin but trouble!! He already gets into everything now he will be all over this house, and OH! yeah- he is also climbing up our gates we have set up in the house!! What do I do about THAT!!?!? I can't keep that kid from anything he wants to do, he is gonna be one head strong determined kid! Scary, but we love him so much! He really is the greatest blessing!

Family Reunion-North Carolina

Here we have NaMaw Nell and Amulek taking a nap hehehe my sneaky sista snuck this shot and of course it woke Mama but we got it, so I gotta post it!! And above is just Amulek's latest closeup shot- everyone always asks me what color his eyes are, and honestly they are BOTH blue and brown, I dunno if YOU can tell in this photo but his eyes are blue with lances of brown-look closely I promise Im telling the truth. So anyone know what I should put on documents? Blue? Brown? both? undecided? :) hehe

So, this past weekend we headed down for the Bunn Family Reunion (my moms side). Each summer we go down to my great aunt and uncle's lake house and literally just talk, cook, eat, laugh, and RELAX. The lake house is big so there are always a lot of people and they have a boat, so we always go for a ride which is tradition for me, I can't leave without a boat ride. This year was Amulek's first reunion, and he was a hit (shocking I know). All I can say is that Amulek is very much like his mother (me), EXTREMELY social, and he loves to make people laugh. And he is not a shy child at all, he loves everybody which I appreciate about his personality so much, especially coming from such a large family, it helps when we all get together and he has fun with everyone from his great grandma "Pumpkin Pie", to his great great aunts and uncles, to my younger and his older cousins. It was such a good time this past weekend, he really did well on this trip and I am so proud of him.
But I just wanted to share a few pics of our weekend and the fun we had with all our family.

daddy time

Amulek LOVES his papi!! Erix was home for 2 weeks cause he fell and broke his arm at work- not fun at all-its the first time he has every really hurt himself. Its a long story but he was out in the middle of no where, the ladder wobbled and he fell just the right way to break the radius of his right arm. We were in the ER for over 3 hours and he was in ALOT of pain, he didnt want to talk or to have anyone touch him, I felt completely useless I couldnt do anything to comfort him. Good news is he is healing well, and now has the 6 week cast on which he cant wait to get off. But because of those 2 weeks Amulek got to have more papi time, which meant more play time. And they really do love playing together. And as you can see Amulek LOVES to give KISSES! even sometimes with his binky in:) Momma taught him right- we love to share love!

Summer FUN!!

Soooo we have discovered that NOTHING stops Amulek. He wanted a popscicle so he opened the box and pulled some out, boy was he determined!!! He actually pulled on them so hard he busted one of them and blue juice went ALL OVER the pops in the box.
We also discovered Amulek LOVES watermelon!!! We had fun on the back porch eating that sweet summer juiciness!! And afterwards Erix and i started kicking the soccer ball around while Amulek had fun eating grass haha just kidding, he was watching us grinning and laughing, then we let him in on the game and he had a blast! Crossing our fingers for the next medio catracho soccer king, and piano player, and whatever else he'd like to pursue that interests him. :) He's so much fun!!

Camera Shy??

So maybe mommy (me) likes to take pictures of Amulek ALOT. And for sure he doesn't mind. He comes crawling up to me trying to take the camera away wondering why that bright light keeps flashing at him :)
