New words!

Burke's vocab: mama, mom, dada, Paul, ( I think that's funny but thats what he hears me say), ball, buddy, cheese, night night, bye bye, no no

We have been working on some signs and a couple of days ago he started signing for 'more'. It's so cute! He also signs for cheerios. He is picking up on the signs so fast now. He only has to see them a couple times and starts doing them.
We are so proud of him!!

1st Hair Cut!!

Burke had his 1st hair cut (more like a trim) on August 13th. My friend Lisa's sister Shannon cut it. The first picture is the before (his bangs go past his nose). I miss his shaggy surfer hair!! It's so hard to cut that baby hair off.

L, P, and B's new house

Finally here are some pictures of our house! We have 2 lots so our property on the right goes to the thicker tree line and the left side is to the street on both sides. Burke is going to love playing out there :) (click on the pictures to enlarge them)

Our new appliances arrived on Monday. It is sooo nice to have a full sized fridge again and to be able to do laundry at our house.

Matt and Court and the kids stayed 2 night last week. We are so glad they are back in the U.S. now!

Grandma and Mimi's Birthday's!

LP Fair 09

We took Burke to his 1st Fair at the end of July. He spotted Balls everywhere. He got super excited when he saw ballons. He would point to the ballon and say ball so we got him one. He loved it!

Another NEW post below!

week 1

We have been in our new house for a little over a week now. Things are still going great. One of our favorite places to relax is out on the front porch overlooking the little "pond". It's so peaceful. Today our fridge and washer/dryer get delivered!! We have been using a mini bar fridge until ours came in.

We had a busy weekend of yard work. the grass was like 4 feet tall... we had some mow it down the day we moved in but it was still like 1 foot tall so we raked and raked and raked and mowed. It looks really good now atleast compared to what it did. Now we have to put down lots of weed killer. It should be beautiful by fall!

Matt and Court and the Kids are back in the US!! They stayed with us Thurs and Fri night. It was so nice to see them and now to know that they are less than 2 hours away now. We are looking forward to staying at their new house in Lafayette.

Burke news:

word #4 buddy word # 5 cheese (He LOVES cheese)

He's been climbing down the stairs for about 2 weeks now. We have a ledge on the fireplace and he loves climbing up and down that too! He also likes pointing at things and shaking his finger when we say no no. Burke still loves balls and spots them everywhere. He's a smart kid :)

I have taken pictures of the house and kids but can't upload them until Paul's computer is hooked up.
