A Little Here, A Little There

I recently switched cell phone carriers, and thus, had to purchase a new cell phone. I actually quite like my new phone. (At first I was afraid I wouldn't. Collin told me this new phone was the best out there. Turns out he was right!) To help pay for the new phone, we sold my old iPhone on Craigslist. While Ro and I waited on the buyer in the Circle K parking lot, Ro figured he'd try his hand at driving the car. 
He was a natural.

Daddy and Roland love to watch ESPN together. Spots Center is their favorite show. I like the top 10 plays of the day.

 Twins in their sky blue polo shirts and seer sucker shorts.

 Little Baby Ro and Ruger the Big Black Dog

Roland found Daddy's baseball bat. One of these days he will be swinging it just like his daddy!

 Life is always much more fun with Auntie Kylie around. She turns a regular bath into a bubble bath!

 And she always lets Roland watch all his favorite videos on her phone.

A Growing Boy Has Got To Eat!

We spend a lot of our time over here eating. It's a cycle we repeat all day long. Eat, play, eat, sleep, diaper change, eat, sleep, eat, diaper change - with, of course, a few other fun things thrown in the mix!

Classic Roland... squeezing his fists and grunting, "MMMM!" (I wish I had a better picture of his grunting face.) What he is really saying is, "Give me more!"

 Learning to suck through a straw was a pretty exciting step - for both Ro and his mom. Now that he has figured it out, he wants a sip of everything!

Having some breakfast with Lila Bug.

Eating something delicious with Daddy.

L O V I N G shredded cheese! 

Chomping down on a tasty apple... Which was especially helpful during teething.

 Enjoying lunch with his second cousin Blayke.

Standing Up

It never ceases to amaze me. All of the things Roland has learned to do. Things that I don't even teach him. He just somehow knows... Like Heavenly Father programmed them into his DNA and his little growing body knows just when he is ready for the next phase. 
Standing was one of those phases. Quickly after standing came cruising. Up and down and along all the furniture. I didn't teach him to do that. He just figured it out!

Cruising up and down our bed during Sunday naps...
...and trying to smack the TV.

"Hi Mom!"
 "Ooo, this looks like you might have something interesting here. Can I have it?'
