Summit and I were so lucky...we went up to Washington to visit Nana and Grandpy and Aunt Vika and Uncle Andy. We had so much fun. We are so grateful for Art and Roz letting us tag along on their way to Canada. We played at the park with friends and family, in the water at the Gig Harbor dock and in Nana's bay and at the Peterson's pool, we played with the dog, with Aunt Becci, and we relaxed. What more could you ask for?! It was so awesome! He also said Mama while we were there, started to play peek-a-boo with his blanket, and said Ba for his Ball. I can't believe how much he changed just in that week while we were away from Dad and Austin. Oh, and another piece of earth shattering news...Summit is sleeping through the night. Finally I broke down and put him in his own crib for good. None of this wishy-washy retrieving of the child when he whines stuff. He sleeps until 5 or 6 am. I am so excited. I should have done that a long time ago. The other day he sleep for 11 hours. Never thought I'd live to see the day that happened.
Summit thought that Uncle Andy was pretty cool. He even babysat our little guy so Nana and I could go kyaking. Yummy...sea treats. Summit thought the seaweed and musscles tasted so good straight from the sea.

Nana is crazy...she was dangling him above the water...of course she had quite the grip...and Summit thought that was the best thing in the world. If she took him out he would try and crawl right back in.
We had fun floating in the tube in Burley Lagoon with Aunt Vika.

Summit giggled like crazy when I pushed him on the swing.

Here we are back home with Daddy. We start 'em early with this driving business.

And we can't wait for our next trip to WA!

Update on life

We had an awesome Fourth of July. We spent the day at the river. It was so relaxing.
And then we went and watched fireworks at the fairgrounds. Summit was watching them at first and then he started to get scared and fuss. I started nursing him and he fell right to sleep even with all the noise.
The other day we were getting ready to go and we were ignoring Summit. He decided to entertain himself. He dug through the grocery bags that hadn't been emptied and found himself a nectarine and helped himself. We found him on the floor eating away. It was so cute. He loves fruit more than anything else except milk.

Now we're in WA to hang out with the fam...we'll post more later.
