Peter is sitting up on his own... well, sort of.

It's true!  I saw Peter push himself up on the floor and sat himself down. His balance is pretty good, too!  Oh, yes... he's so adorable to watch! I was curious because I laid him down and he wasn't sitting, you know?  Unbelievable. My baby boy is growing!  He just turned 6 months.  I think he is about to crawl any time now.  He's showing all the signs of crawling. You'll see what I am talking about when I post it on video. I'll have to remind myself to video him sitting up on his own and show you!

I really have a lot to say on here but I forgot what I had in mind.  That's why I started taking notes on a piece of paper so that I can type it on here.  But because it's 11:40pm I can't make much noise looking for that paper... yes, everyone is sleeping.  I've misplaced that paper somewhere but I'll look for it tomorrow so that I can have you up-to-date.

Oh and... sighs... Joanna was playing with my phone and lost all my contacts!  No kidding!!  I knew this was bound to happen sooner or later.  Funny, I did think of copying my contacts to an address book incase this ever was to happen but didn't get around to it. I guess it takes something like this to get me motivated.  :D

By the way, I am getting ready to start having Peter try baby food.  I'm still nursing him but that will stop when he turns 9 months.  But I am not too confident yet about weaning him off but... we'll see!!  First thing first... I need to get his 6 month check up and vaccinations. Since I am in Indiana, Matt called one place but they won't see us because we aren't from their town.  Really?!  I need to get this taken care of soon since he just turned 6 months on the 23rd.

Tennessee Aquarium

Yeah! Finally got these Tennessee Aquarium pictures uploaded. Whew.  You'll see a repeated photo of Joanna in some of them.  I just wanted to share her enthusiasm.

Be sure to look at a few more new photos I've posted on the Tennessee Zoo photo album (below).

Tennessee Zoo


Well.. here are some of the zoo pictures I was able to upload. Oh and there's more!  I just got tired of waiting for them to upload because all of a sudden it was taking forever to download.  It is now 4:10am! I'll stop for now so that I can get some sleep.  I'll captioned and post the rest of the pictures later.

Here you'll see us taking a tour at the zoo in Tennessee. It was fun to watch Joanna pet a goat. After having so much fun, Joanna and baby Peter were out like a light.

Last visit with grandma and grandpa Guerra

Here I am able to post a few of the many pictures I've taken of grandpa and grandma Guerra with their grandbabies.  There's more to come!  Next time you'll see pictures of us visiting the Tennessee Zoo and Aquarium.  Yes, I said Tennessee not Texas.  :)  Let's hope I get them posted this week.  Keep in mind, it is going to take some time uploading because they are over 100! 

So, please bear with me!

Aw, baby Peter still looks little!  The next time we see you grandpa...
Peter will do a growth spurt and he just might be walking then!

Aw, grandma's giving some love to her grandson.
What a precious photo!
Peter's getting kisses from his grandpa.

Small town

Praise the Lord! Our truck broke down right at our destination. We have arrived to a midwestern state, Indiana to be exact. Oh and it's not the big city I'm talking about but a small town. Ahh!! Let's just say, I'm labeling myself a big city gal. I just like being close to stores like Wal-mart. Whaaaa? There's nothing wrong with that store! Okay so I just like to be close to everything incase I need something. Something like chocolate. :)

I don't have internet service so I use any wi-fi that's nearby. I'm thankful that my phone has wi-fi but because we are in a small town the signal here is weak. I may not be able to update as much unless I use Matt's phone. He also have wi-fi and I'm currently using his because it seems to work unlike mine. Strange. I knew this would happen... blame small towns! That's one of the downside. BUT I do like looking at the old barns here! Noticed that I have something positive to say?! For some reasons, I really want to take pictures having an old barn as my background. I think that'll make a great family photo! I just hope I can muster up the courage to ask someone's permission to take pictures at their home that have barns. Problem? Time. We'll see if I ever ended up taking pictures.

Oh you won't believe this! I can't believe a cop came knocking on our trailer!! SERIOUSLY? It's 11:30pm and he's knocking?? What's all this racket about? If you're wondering how I heard it, I had my hearing-aids on and I felt my trailer shake, (exaggerating now) rattle and roll. I don't know why I got up and look outside my window (left it open to get fresh air) with a flashlight beaming right at my face. I heard a voice talking but figured it was Tom's (our group leader). Matt went and opened the door to see what's going on. Then he closed the door and I asked him what was wrong. He said the cop was just checking to see if everything was alright because he saw the lights were on inside the elementary school. Yes, we are parked at an elementary school and parked next to it. What are we doing here? This elementary school is going to turn into a church! How crazy is that?! Tom and Matt are working are working in the cafeteria area to transform it into an auditorium. (Pictures to follow.)

I was washing dishes and notice the water wasn't running like it should. Greaaaaat! Another added problem. Who would have thought that we were using water coming from a well? Really?? We are hooked up to use water at the school that runs through a well and it is barely coming out through our trailer. Just wonderful! How did I ever got the patience to take showers with little water running?? I don't know but I sure miss taking a good massage-able shower! I did try using the water pressure to take a shower but then it did a whip slap move on me! Goodness! I was glad I just started it without getting into it. The water pressure was just too strong. Matt had to turn off the water pressure. He told me that it was set at 90%. I don't know all the details but I'm guessing that's a pretty high percentage to be set on and it doesn't sounds good either way. There's so much to this story but I'll bore you. Moving on.

Guess what? I sat Peter down and now he's able to sit up with no support around him! Ain't that cool? My baby boy is growing up fast! But then so is Joanna. *sighs* The difference? Peter does everything sooner than Joanna. What I mean is that he's been rolling over, sitting up and moving around a lot more sooner than when Joanna was his age (at 5 months). It took Joanna a lot time to roll over, more like at 6 months but with Peter... it was like 2 months! Big differences!

I'll try and see if I can upload pictures of when grandma and grandpa Guerra came to visit us last month. It was a much needed visit and Joanna got spoiled! It's all about the grand-babies!! Okay so we were spoiled too BUT something tells me.. it's about the grand-babies. ;)
