Josh is up to 33 1/4 inches. We are still crossing our fingers for 36 inches by next June so he can ride most of the rides at Holiday World. We think that we might have my sister convinced to come with us, but it's still to early to tell. His vocabulary continues to grow and is now saying please, thank you and welcome. The potty training is a little rough. We are still trying to put on the potty several times during the day, but we haven't had any successes in a while.
Matt and I have been working on planning a reunion with all our Chongqing family for next year. We drew the place out of a hat, which was Atlanta. Matt somehow was able to get the two people who had not joined our yahoo group to join, reconnected with someone who hasn't visit our yahoo group in a long time and guilted one person into posting pictures of their little one. So far, it looks like everyone will be meeting in Atlanta. That means there could be about 55 of us terrorizing Atlanta next year. We are all so excited!
Now on to the pictures:
Some of you may remember a picture of Josh walking around in his stacking cups. Well, back then he could wear the light and dark purple cups. He has grown a bit and now is in light purple and dark blue.
Passing on of the squeaky shoes.
Josh has passed on his squeaky shoes to his cousin Alex in hopes that he will start walking on his own soon. Alex can walk very well while holding on to one finger, but not yet brave enough for independence. I'm sure he will like hearing himself squeak just as Josh still does. Don't worry I'll get them back when Alex is finished with them.
Last but not least, things are still going well with Marge. Our time with Marge is coming to an end soon. She will soon be going back to work and Josh will be going to a friends house on the days Matt works. We hope that all goes well with the change I think that everyone is a little nervous about it.
M, J, and J
P.S. We just got a new point and shot camera and if we can figure out how to do it we should be able to put a short video up on the blog. No guarantees though.
