Luke the Fireman

Rob's Uncle Jeff promised Luke earlier this summer a tour of the fire house in Springfield.  He is now a fire investigator with the Springfield fire department, he was a fire fighter for many years there.  Well this past weekend we asked if Luke could come down to see the fire house!  He was SO excited!  We ended up touring the Chatham fire house where Rob's cousin Lance is an EMT and a volunteer fire fighter first.  Luke loved being able to get in the fire trucks and ambulances, and he loved trying on Lance's fire gear.  We then went out to the Springfield fireman's club out at Lake Springfield, Luke and Gabby had a lot of fun swinging and Luke loved the playground!  Then Rob's Aunt Donna and Lance left to go try to get us a table at D'arcy's Pint, they called us back and said it would be an hour and a half wait!!!  We decided not to do that, we will have to try to go there for lunch next time.  So we went to Cheddar's and then to a Springfield fire house where Luke got to turn on the sirens and sit inside the truck.  He says he is going to be a fireman when he grows up now.  I may have to talk him out of that! haha!  Thanks again to the Miller's for the awesome day for Luke!

Gabrielle Susan is 9 months old!

Being a sweetie!
Gabrielle turned 9 months old today!  She is such a sweetie!!!  She had her 9 month appointment today, and was 19 pounds 6 ounces and 26 1/4 inches tall!  I can't remember what her head was, but it was in the 75th percentile!  haha.  She is a healthy, happy little girl!  She brightens every day with her big still toothless grin!  She loves to say Dada and baba.  Her fave person is Daddy.  She loves to smile at him, talk to him, and even waves hi and bye to him!!  She has yet to say Mama or wave at me, haha!  I think we have a major Daddy's Girl on our hands!   She does not crawl yet, but believe me she gets where she wants to be!  She either rolls, scoots forward, pivots, or crawls backwards to things!  She is definitely on the move!!  Especially if she wants one of Luke's toys!!  She still loves to eat, she is eating some finger foods and all of the stage 3 baby foods.  She is a such a joy, and i couldn't be more proud of her!!!
