Mr. Chubber

Moses is almost 10 months now and has become quite the little destroyer. He is into everything and loves to pull books or DVD's off of the shelf. He has climbed all the way to the top of the stairs (with parental supervision of course!) He loves to crawl and be chased. He can now do the baby signs for light and more quite effectively. He loves to eat - loves it! Unfortunately, he doesn't like to snuggle too much anymore, unless he is exhausted. We went to the beach and he is quite the water baby. My love for him grows everyday and I can't imagine life without the Little Mister!

Little Nasty

Little Nasty has become our new favorite nick name for Moses. As you can see he LOVES to grab food and then rub it ALL over his face. Today he had pieces of blueberries and sweet potato everywhere. The best so far are the pictures below when he ate avocados when he was tired so he kept rubbing them in his eyes. He looks like he was just in makeup to become Kermit the Frog. Derrick says he looks like the Ultimate Warrior with the food being war paint. Nothing a good bath can't take care of.

Our last week

Before we moved we tried to go to our favorite places one last time. These pictures are from Russell Orchard and Manchester by the Sea - a cute and quaint New England town on the coast.


Well Derrick and I are both officially graduates of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. We received our diplomas on May 9 and then moved the very next day. It was a whirlwind of a weekend. We packed and cleaned our apartment on Friday and then graduated Saturday and moved Sunday on mothers day. (While cleaning the apt. Derrick surprised me by giving me beautiful diamond stud earings for my graduation/birthday/anniversary/mother's day present!) Both of our parents came up for graduation and to help us move. It was hard saying goodbye to all our friends who we have lived with and came to love over the last 3 years. We'll miss our church family and small group and the New England way of life. Living 10 minutes from the beach never got old. The summers were warm but not suffocating like they are in SC. But all good things must come to an end. Us moms flew back while the dad's drove the car and truck down. After 2 days they arrived and we unpacked all of our junk into my parents garage where it has been sitting for the last 5 weeks.
