Breaking News

This just in to the Thomas news room . . .
Ronan has conquered his conquest!!  He made it under the chair!.  Early in the evening of October 29, we were called to the scene.  The celebration was already in process for little Roo.  When asked how he felt about this victory, Ronan responded with a loud, happy shriek, a few growls and some babbling: "mamamamama" and "dadadadadada", which I am told, was a special thanks to his parents.
Way to figure it out Ronan!!

The quest

This morning I as I ate my breakfast, I looked and found Ronan in the position below.  I watched him, not sure if he was trying to go further under the chair or if he had just scooted himself under it without realizing where he was going.  Turns out there was a toy in there that he wanted.

Trying to figure out how to fit his noggin in there:

Almost got it!

It's too hard Mama!!  I'm getting really frustrated!!

Giving up to defeat . . .

Finally Mama helped him out and gave him the toy he was after.  Now he's trying to figure out if it's edible . . .

It is!!!

9 months old!!

Today Ronan turned 9 months old!  The time is flying by.  We started off the day with a visit to Dr. Kanagal for the 9 month old visit.  The doc said he looks great and is strong as a horse!  Here are his stats:

Height:  29 1/2"  75-90%
Weight:  18 lbs. 14 1/2 oz.  10-25%

After the appointment, my mom, the boys and I headed to the Desert Botanical Garden for their annual pumpkin patch.  It was so great!  My mom has a membership, so we all got in for free plus each of the boys got to pick their own pumpkin - for free!!!!!!!!  I thought I would be able to get a few cute pics of the Roo at the pumpkin patch for his 9 month photo.  Well, you mom's out there know how it goes.  Theoretically, it should be the perfect time to get the cutest picture with no problem at all.  Yea right.  I guess Ronan was not in the mood for photos.  Every time I set him down, he cried.  I tried a few different tactics: on the ground with the pumpkin, sitting on Aidan's lap, sitting in the bucket of the tractor, sitting on a pumpkin . . .no luck.  Oh well.  I still think they are cute.

Fire truck fun at the H.D.

On Saturday, the Salt River Fire Department had their huge ladder truck and one ambulance set up for kids to see at the Home Depot.  The boys had a blast looking at them and sitting in them, pretending to drive.  Aidan's first question was "can we climb up the ladder?"  Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of how tall the ladder was, I'm sure you can imagine.  Anyway, it was fun to watch the boys run around in their firefighter hats, in awe of the trucks.
