You and Uncle Murray had a grand time at Thanksgiving dinner this year. You feasted on some yummy puréed food while we got the good stuff.

Jimmy, you’re slowly starting to get a grip on the whole “sitting up” thing. You’re not quite there yet, but you do well for long enough that I can snap a quick picture.

Jimmy, you had your first “real” food this week. Baby oatmeal! You seemed very interested in it, even if you couldn’t quite keep everything in your mouth. This is a picture of your mom loving on your despite the messy aftermath!

This week’s picture was taken by your mother. You and she traveled to Houston for Great Grandma’s funeral. While it was a sad occasion, getting all nine siblings together is always a party, and I think they celebrated Grandma’s life in a way that she would have been proud of! And having a baby around always brings some additional joy. You were a good traveler, but Simon, Mary, Lucy, and I were all glad when you and Mommy came back.

Jimmy, you are a drool monster. We just got back from a short vacation at Great Wolf Lodge, and your siblings loved it, and you loved spending time in the baby carrier in the pool. You might be a natural swimmer!
