Summer fun

The trip to Louisiana went well this past month! It's pretty much an all day trip, but Ansel is quite the little traveler. Grandma and Grandpa Miller came with us, so he had company in the back seat and didn't complain much. We also went to Celebration City in Branson a week ago. Ansel rode his first ferris wheel and carousel ride. He continues to make many new sounds all the time.. there's the little grunting/ growl sound.. not sure how to explain it but its pretty funny. He's tolerating tummy time a little more than he used to... several minutes at a time instead of a few seconds! Warning though, if you hold him, you will get wet! He's still a major drooler, plus his new favorite trick is blowing bubbles (which always comes with a big saliva spray!) He hit 8 months yesterday... crazy to think its already been that long!

Got to see Aunt Amanda again. She's in the Marines and goes back to Iraq pretty soon.

Nap time... can it get any better than this?

Hi Kerri, Cody & Ansel,
It looks like you're finishing up summer with some fun. I know your mom & dad, Kerri, had a great time with you on the trip to Louisiana. It looks like your adventure to Branson was a fun one too. Ansel is such a cutie! It is hard to believe he's already 8 months old. It looks like he's a happy, healthy boy.

What a fun family vacation. I'm glad to hear he was good in the car for you, that's usually the hardest part. He's got a great smile.
