Firsts

Nearly a week ago, on Labor Day, Aubrey started to crawl. She is now trying to pull herself up, and gets frustrated when she can't. She often stands on her knees and seems to like the leverage that gives her. Here's a little video of her playing with a stuffed dog, crawling, and "talking."



We signed Tyler up for soccer, his first organized sport, a few weeks ago. He begged not to be signed up, but we thought it would be a good experience for him. Wayne is their team coach.

Saturday was Tyler's first soccer game. Since we haven't practiced much with him and Tyler is the only one on his team who didn't play last year, I was a little nervous.

Our team was scoring quite a few goals, while the other team was not. I was impressed that that the parents from our team (the silver Jets) were also cheering for the other team (the blue Dragons) in hopes that they would have fun and feel proud of themselves too. :) I missed some of the game when Aubrey had projectile vomiting (first time for either of my kids to throw up that I recall) and then I discovered that she also had a poopy diaper.

The video is of the beginning of the game, and I enjoyed watching Tyler's confidence grow as they played. Afterward, I was happy to hear Tyler say that he had a good time. (The AYSO sent us a pack of jerseys that were not based on the sizes of our kids. Tyler's shirt is in a knot because he's wearing an adult small).



Another first for the day was Aubrey's first tooth poking through. I have yet to see it, but I have felt it. She does not like me poking around in her mouth to try to see it, so I guess it's still tender.



I had decided not to post about any more losses of teeth, but it just so happened that the day Aubrey got her first tooth, Tyler lost a tooth. It was a toothy day! :)

Good videos. I agree with Kathy that I'm glad it wasn't a real dog as she attacked it. Fun, fun, fun.
