Baby Scherm 2.0

As you can see here Baby #2 is in the crock pot and will be arriving somewhere around July 28th! This sonogram was done 1/19, the baby was 13 weeks old.
We are so excited that God has decided to bless us with another baby! He truely is amazing! We didn't decide the timing with Lars, we would have liked for him to come much earlier. With Lars 2.0 (as we affectionately call him/her) we weren't even thinking about another baby yet. We know that God's plan is so much greater than ours!
Lars LOVES playing with other kids. After he gets over the initial shock of having to share his dad and mom, I'm sure he is going to love being a big brother!

Snow Days

We have really been enjoying the snow this week! We had a snow party on Tuesday. All Lars' friends came over to play, drink hot chocolate and have chicken noodle soup. Unfortunately, Lars has a runny nose so he hasn't actually gotten to go out and play in the snow, but he has enjoyed watching his friends playing in it and banging on the window:):). Avery and Maryn look so cute all bundled up in their snowsuits!
This week he was introduced to the tupperware cabinet. As you can see he enjoyed very much taking everything out and spreading it all over the kitchen.

Reagan was helping Julie shovel the ice off the driveway yesterday. You can see the large piece of ice she removed:). Yesterday, for the first time, Lars crawled across the living room and pulled himself up to stand in front of the couch! He was so proud, he decided to use the couch as a drum set in true "Lars" fashion:)

Last, but not least, this is our favorite dog to watch in the neighborhood. His owner is a large man and he always looks so cute in his matching jacket:):)

Random acts of cuteness!

Lars really enjoys riding on his rocking horse (1st photo). He is practicing his waving skills from his favorite chair, the high chair (2nd photo). Lars had yogurt for the first time this week and he had to fight off Simon, who was trying to steal it (3rd photo).

In the last photo is a picture of my baby looking more like a little boy, than a baby :( He is playing in his jumpy, shirtless with his camo pants on.

9 months

Lars just keeps growing and growing! As you can see he did slow down a little, but he is still off the chart. More than him growing in size though, he is truely developing his personality. He is such a flirt and joker. He just loves to smile and play.
We have been traveling a lot over the last month and he can always find a girl to flirt with, be it in the airport, grocery store or doctor's office. He is always everyone's favorite baby and he just loves all the attention.
He has 4 teeth now: 2 on top and 2 on bottom. He is getting to enjoy more variety in his diet, thanks to his new chompers. He would eat Puffs forever if we let him.
He is also talking quite a bit now. It is really cute 99% of the time. We have been taking him to Bible study with us, but we are going to have to start getting a sitter, because he thinks everyone is talking to him and he responds! He is saying, Dada, Mama, Papa, Baba and we think Avery (which comes out A-be).
He can crawl from one room to another & stand holding onto something. He waves bye-bye when he feels like it. He loves to clap his hands (his new way to get attention and stay awake:). He will also give Karl a high five (sometime he will humor me with one)!
He really is the best baby! We really are blessed with this little guy!!!
