Seven months with you! What a joy! You continue to be the happiest baby around and are just so much fun! You had croup at the beginning of the month. We are lucky we caught it early and got on steroids for a few days, and had no issues at all with it. It is good to see you building an immune system but tough to see you get sick! Mom and Dad both caught your germs and ended up on medicine too! You are eating one meal a day at the table with us. You are Mr. Independent who wants to feed himself, and make a huge mess, so we are limiting it to once a day. You eat squash, carrots, avocado, and sweet potato. We had two trips to the beach this month, probably our last of the summer. We celebrated Daddy’s first Father’s Day this month. He was sick so we let him celebrate in bed all day! At 28 weeks you started doing the cutest backwards butt scoot. You aren’t crawling yet but you are able to get around by rolling and scooting. You can sit pretty well unassisted now, you topple over after a bit so we are still close by. We celebrated the Fourth of July at the beach this month also. It’s always been a special time with lots of celebration going on at the coast, but for the second year in a row everything was cancelled because of Covid. Town was pretty quiet, and it was just us. We did continue our family tradition of dressing up in patriotic attire. We are looking forward to the years to come when it’s safe to celebrate with everyone again. It is so special to continue years of traditions with you! We love you big little one!

Remembering our Heroes!

No day shall erase you from the memory of time -Virgil

I went to New York in January of 2002; I visited Ground Zero on that trip and it was still in absolute devastation. While I have made many trips to the city since then, this was the first time I returned to the World Trade Center site since that visit. It was so nice to see it in a different light now.

We toured the National September 11 Memorial and Museum on a recent trip. The memorial and museum is very well done. I think going with the guided tour allowed us to get a lot more out of the museum, so if you have the chance to go I would encourage you to go with a guide.

Thinking of all of those who were lost and those who lost loved one on this tragic day in 2001.
