Movin' and Grovin'

Well Tanner is almost 8 months old! Holy cow, that went fast. He has been crawling for a while now, and is getting really good at standing up to furniture and pulling everything off (ie coffee table in the living room). We have moved to a little house, still in West Seattle, and are loving the quiet street. We now have a dog, chocolate lab named Carly, and are slowly getting used to that. It's like having a baby, but an even crazier one than Tanner. It was pretty tough at first, but I am loving her company now. Especially because Jake is gone so much. Although she would be more than happy to greet a robber and show him around our house, I feel safer with her here. Odd, but true. Anyways, here's a little update.... Mostly about Tanner, of course
This was a few months ago, but it was an awesome place to bike.  Duthie Hill.  It was a lot of circuits that met back in the middle, so we traded off baby watching.  Jake wore him in the pack just on the easy trail on the way into the center.
This was a while ago too, but it was really funny.  It was one of the first times Tanner had touched grass, and he didn't like it at all.  I set him down in it, and he gave this high pitched cry until I picked him up again.  He still hates crawling in grass.
Last weekend we went to Kennewick with Starlie and Nate to see Brian Regan. Tauni and Isaac came to watch the kids, and we all had a good time laughing.

Our new house, Tanner playing the piano with grandpa.

He must have been one tired boy to fall asleep in Jake's arms!
Eating! (With a rotten cold)

Honestly, this is Tanner's favorite thing to do.  If he's not sitting on your lap, he will stand up to the piano, fingers barely reaching the keys, and play the same high notes again and again.

What a big boy


  1. Tanner is so adorable! I love his smile and big blue eyes!

  3. Hi Jake and Ellisha and Tanner!

    Boy, how beautiful is this little guy??? Such blue eyes - he will surely be a heartbreaker and have lots of girls writing him on his mission!
