For the very large lack of posts from the Seattle Johnstons these days. Lack of sleep, working 4 days a week and the arrival (sort of) of summer have made blogging very low on my priority list. We are having so much fun with our little people. Avery is so fun to talk to these days. We love hearing the things she come up with on a daily basis. She has created her own language now too, so half the time we have no idea what she is saying! She is becoming such a huge helper with Gerrit (even feeding him solids) and he falls more in love with her every day. Speaking of Gerrit... Where has our little baby gone? We had to lower the crib mattress today because someone has figured out how to stand up already! I didn't sleep at all last night because I was so worried he was going to crawl out of his crib. He is officially crawling as of last Friday too. It's so fun to watch him grow, but so sad that my baby is growing so fast. Though, at his 6 month appointment he was only in the 25th percentile for height and weight coming in at 15 lbs, 10 oz and 27 and 3/4 inches. I'm ok with that, it makes it easier to snuggle him! Here is a link to some photos from the last few months. Everything from Avery's dance class, her first real race, swimming (and swimming lessons, which did not go the greatest) and everything in between. I'm only posting on this other site because I had so many photos I wanted to post, it would have taken me 2 months just to upload them all to this site! Hopefully I'll be able to post more regularly in the future. See you in Michigan in 3 short weeks!
Happy 6 months Gerrit Christopher! And happy Independence Day!
