Booga Update 10/24/06


Dear Family & Friends,

I am 9 months old today. I didn't have much of a growth spurt this month so, my weight is 21 lbs + 2 ozs and I'm 28 inches long. I'm still crawling, pulling myself up on things, standing while holding on to something, and trying to get this walking thing down. Hopefully, I'll be able to do it without holding on to things by next month. I have a total of four teeth now...two on the top and two on the bottom! In addition to the usual starter foods, I'm enjoying new stages of baby food and a variety of finger foods. I love clapping my hands and just recently, I learned how to shake my head to say "no". There are those who think I'm just shaking my head with no concept of what I mean but, I know better. I talk a lot but I'm not saying anything that anyone can really understand. I also like to scream when I'm really happy. I'm still having a good time at day care. I have a new friend that just started coming this month. She is around my same age, really nice, and cute! I've been trying to find out what her name is but she probably doesn't understand what I'm asking her and I don't understand what she is saying either. Communication is a little tough right now but, I'm sure we will both get better at it in time. Anyhoo, it feels good to have someone there that I can relate to and play with.

Now that summer's over and the weather is beginning to change, I've been sticking closer to home. My Cousin Joyce from Jacksonville, FL came to Philadelphia for a one-week visit with her auntie, my Great Grandmother "Pumpkin Pie". I really enjoyed meeting and spending time with her while she was here. Things were a little weird around my house for a couple of weeks this month because my Grandmother caught a cold that later turned into pneumonia. She was very sick and in the hospital for a week. I missed her not being around the house and picking me up from day care. My Mommy took me to see her while she was in the hospital and that made my Grandmother really happy. I had a good time with all the nurses while I was there too. They were all very friendly and nice to me. My Grandmother is back home now and everything is back to normal. As always, my Mommy, Grandmother, and Pop-Pop, all said to tell you "hello". We also want to thank you for your concern and prayers during my Grandmother's illness.

Well, I guess that's all for now. Look for my next update on 11/24/06. See you then!

Love, "The Booga..."

Thanks for stopping by and sending me a message. I heard from Melanie just recently of your hospitalization. I was very concerned and asked my mom about it and she had no idea. We need to get a better communication plan for ouf family. I am glad to hear that you are feeling a lot better. I will continue to pray for you!

Now on to the Booga. He is getting so handsome. The two teeth are just icing on the cake. I know he might be a little miserable. The trick is to give him Tylenol in the morning and this helps with the pain. Here comes the biting stage! Just remember to keep the fingers out of his mouth. My dad found out the hard way. Boy was he surprised that Laila had such a strong grip!

Have a wonderful day!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
