It seems like we have been going non-stop since the last post with no sign of slowing down. It just blows my mind how quickly days, weeks, and months fly by. Shoot, the Kid is going to be 10 months old next week!!!!! It feels just like yesterday I was whining, waiting for the pregnancy to be over.

But in the lives of babies, things can change very quickly. 4 teeth, crawling, walking with her Dora car, and she has pretty much decided she hates purees. The walking bit is the newest feat and probably the most fun too. She has also decided the dogs make pretty good wrestling partners and proceeds to rotate which one she is beating up each day. They are pretty good sports about it and only occasionally try to run away from her. Too bad for them, she is a lot quicker than she used to be and can get to them with little problems. Dinner time has changed a little around here, a little more thinking is involved.

We have been to a few more baseball games and she does really well. Orbit is a big hit with the kiddos and she claps when she sees him. She fell asleep during the fireworks on the 4th, woke up, watched for a few minutes, rolled over and went back to sleep. We couldn't ask for anything better I don't think.

Unfortunately, with so much rain since May we haven't been able to take the boat out. The river is just high and fast. Sadly, the Missouri has taken some lives in the last few days and there is just no point risking it. Thankfully, it has stopped raining and we have had some nice weather.

The Kid and I went to her first pig show today and let me tell you Kansas folk, your pigs are safe. Showing is a completely different game here. It shocked me, I have never seen a Hog Jogger before. The poor judge even commented on the quality of the piggies, sadness. She did very well watching the show, mostly playing in the bleachers and people watching.
