What did we do???

 Well, we finally did it.  I absolutely loved Drake's long wild hair, but sometimes it just looked so ratty.  So, we decided to go ahead and cut it.  It will grow back right???  He still is as cute as ever but he looks like a totally different kid!  Ahhhhh!  I miss his long hair!

Cute Little Sonja

I have been told I don't post enough things about Sonja so I decided to do some video's of her.  She just lights up our house and is the happiest little girl.  And she definitely is little!  For her 9 month check up she is a whopping 15 lbs 14 ounces.  She is in the 10 percentile for her weight and height.  She is such a petite little thing.  She also is a busy little thing!  She loves crawling everywhere and loves to go climb up the stairs (when we are right there of course).  She also loves to stand by Drake's train table and try to play with him.  She is such a little babbler and is starting to use her sign language!  Right now she can say more  (which is definitely the one she uses the most), food, and milk.  She also is such a little pig!  I know that is hard to believe since she is so tiny but she can definitely eat!  We actually cut her off because  I don't know if she will ever stop eating.  She can easily put away a few handfuls of snacks, a serving of fruit, a serving of vegetables, a serving of grains and and seconds of whatever we are willing to give her all for one meal.  Sonja is such a refreshing change in our household.  Drake has so much energy and is constantly needing to be challenged but Sonja is just so content.  She is along of the ride and seems like she loves every minute.  We were so proud of her (of  both of them really) during our 24 hour car ride.  She just slept or watched Drake the whole time.  We couldn't have asked either of them to handle that any better!  I can't believe that in two short months Sonja will be 1.  Crazy!

Grandma Anderson

 For the month of July we were lucky enough to get to spend the whole month in Utah with our families.  Chris was able to do a rotation in ED at the University of Utah for the month.  We had so much fun but unfortunately didn't take many pictures.  Of course.  While we were in Utah we went boating, went to a couple parades, did a bunch of swimming, hung out with our families, ate some good food and got to see some old friends. It was so fun to be there for the whole month!  While we were there we went down to Spanish Fork to see Chris's grandma.  We actually took our camera with us!  It was good to spend some time with Grandma Anderson.  We don't get to see her all that much and she is just the sweetest lady!

I am sad we didn't take more pictures while we were in Utah because we made some really good memories.  Oh well...
