Yes, we are alive, and although I'm super late in posting, I have been taking pictures! For Given's 8 month birthday San Francisco decided to give us our first beach weather weekend! Going to the beach with an 8 month old wasn't nearly as fun as going sans children. I thought it would be easier since Given isn't crawling yet, but I forgot to factor in that he puts everything into his mouth!!!!!! I think our next beach trip will be several months from now!
And just because...Given's new favorite activity - taking every single toy out of his basket. We haven't gotten to the stage of him putting everything back though!
Given's milestone in April was getting his 2nd tooth!! The 2nd tooth came in much easier than the 1st - thank goodness. He isn't crawling yet, but he's getting there. Also, during April Given started saying Dada (first) and Mama. We aren't quite sure if it's babble or if he is addressing us!
