Up, up, and away!

Well, not the away part yet, but here he comes, up and up!

I walked into the boys' room this morning and found this:

which was promptly followed by this:

(do you see him there...flailing backward, limbs a blur?)

He's been trying for the last couple of days now. Just like Levi, actually, his first attempt was on a case of Zephyrhills water, lol. After 3 or 4 days of practice, he finally has it down.

And so this has become our new fun game. He stands up on anything he can possibly find, gets excited, bounces, waves his hands, and falls because he's not holding on anymore, lol. It's a blast! Levi is really enjoying it too...he keeps saying, "Gain!" and pointing at John Morgan, trying to get him to do it again!

My most favorite, though, is when he crawls over to me, grabs one hand and pulls himself on his knees to take my other hand, then pulls himself up to standing. He's so close to me, looking me right in the eyes, giggling in excitement over his new found independence. So sweet.

I love being a mom!

New Tricks

John Morgan has learned a new trick...

(Please ignore the baby talk coming from the overly-excited mommy!)

6 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day later
, and we have a full-on mover and shaker! He's is so pleased with himself and is LOVING being able to go wherever he wants to, although his poor forehead isn't so's kinda like a magnet...he crawls over to ______ {fill in the blank} and doesn't know to stop! So he's had a few bumps...

Family togetherness...

I mean the big, ever-growing Miller Family togetherness!

The first weekend in September, we had the opportunity to go to Jacksonville for Mike and Keturah's son Zerin's baby blessing. It was such a wonderful reason for gathering together, and we had such a nice time being with everyone in the same place again!

The boys got to play a little Rock Band {which Joe-Z thoroughly enjoyed} and Levi adored the swing set John and Sarah had in the backyard!

We love you Miller Family, and we're so happy we're all so close again!

Up and running...kinda

Okay, so we've finally got our Internet working at a normal speed, and I've located not only my camera cord, but my camera also! Woo hoo!

And yet, I haven't posted anything for a few weeks. "Why?" you may ask...I'll tell you. Since it's been so long since I've had anything to post, I feel like this first one back needs to be big. And great. And lately, I just do. not. have the time for big and great.

So...I decided that I'd just do something short and sweet...take the pressure off, you know? That way, at least I'm back and can go from here!

Here are just a couple of pictures to check out for now. Not lots, of course, as that would take a lot of time and effort, therefore thwarting my efforts of creating a simple post. :o)
