9 Months Old

Sorry for the lack of posts as of real excuse, just busy enjoying summer and time with my two boys!

Connor had his 9 month appointment a few weeks ago and he is doing great! :) He weighed in at 24 pounds, 1 ounce and is 30 inches long...both of those numbers put him in the 90-95 percentile range...he is not a small boy! :)

He is crawling, pulling up, walking with his elephant toy and getting in to everything!!! He especially loves Owen's toys (especially the rubber ones that look like teethers...he loves to chew on those). Pat and are having a blast with our little man!

More Connor

Just some more fun pictures of Connor! :)

My Mom has been so much better about taking pictures then I am...I need to take lessons from her.

There are some more new pictures of Connor under The Murphy Family Picture Site on the side of the blog. Check those out, too! :)


I LOVE to play with these new golf clubs. I just swing them around and around and around...

Look...I can stand! :) This is my new music table and I love to stand and play with it.

My Grandpa and shirt says "If You Think I Nap A Lot, You Should See My Grandpa!". Thanks for the shirt, Grandpa!

This is the shirt Aunt Maryjane and Uncle Jon gave me when I was born. It says Pasta & Potatoes, Italian & Irish. It is the perfect shirt for me and I am so glad it finally fits. Thanks guys! :)

Summertime at Indiana University

Mom, Grandma Pucci, Grandpa Pucci and I took a day trip down to Bloomington, Indiana/Indiana University last week. It was a GORGEOUS day and we were able to enjoy IU in the summertime. Here are some pictures from our afternoon. Also, this is just a sampling of the pictures we took. Check out The Murphy Family Picture Site for all the photos.

I found a puppy to play with in Dunn Meadow and I LOVED him. His name was Dexter and he was a Puggle.

New Pool

We bought Connor a little plastic pool for the backyard and he LOVES it! :) Some pictures from him playing in it!

Too Cute Not To Post...

I think now that Connor is moving (crawling), Owen is WORN OUT!

Murphy Family Vacation In Orlando...Take Two!

Pops (Pat's Dad) just downloaded his photographs from the Murphy Family Vacation in Orlando (in May) to Phanfare and since our camera battery died on day two of the trip (and we forgot the charger at home) I wanted to post some more pictures from the trip. There are a few really, really good ones of Connor (Pops took some great photos!).

On our way to Disney...

On the way home from Disney with his new toy that he would not put down! :)

Meme and Pops with their two boys

Meme and Pops watched Cole and Connor while Moms and Dads got a night out. We had a BLAST!

Breakfast with Friends

Connor and I had a great morning as we met our friends Kelly and Izzy McCulloch for breakfast at one of my favorite sports, Cafe Patachou (the best cinnamon toast EVER!). We had not seen these two in a while and it was great to catch up! Kelly and I went through all of our fertility stuff together a while back and since the kiddos have been born we have not seen each other nearly as often as we would like.

Funny side note...while we were eating breakfast one of the servers came up to us and asked if we were sisters because they thought we looked alike and so did the kids... VERY FUN!!!! :)

Kelly is a dear friend and it was a wonderful morning!

Random Connor Pictures

Just some fun pictures of Connor I thought you would enjoy!

Look at me...I can play the guitar!

My first set of golf clubs!

I really like to swing...

4th of July

Another dreary 4th of July...that ended with good weather! :) I feel like every year for the past few years, the 4th of July has been dreary and rainy...and this year fell right in to that. We were supposed to hang at the pool all day (me, Mom and Connor) while Dad and Pat played golf...but the rain had other plans for us!

It rained pretty much all morning/early afternoon so Mom, Connor and I went out to breakfast while the guys attempted to play golf. They ended up coming home around 9 AM and then Mom and I headed to the mall to do a little shopping. We met the boys for lunch and then took it easy the rest of the day (while Connor napped).

Friday night Mom, Dad, Pat, Connor, Penny (Pat's Mom), Natalie and I made our way to Highland for a BBQ and fireworks. The rain was pretty much over by this point so we had a nice night. Connor made it through the fireworks with flying colors and only made a few little whimpers during the entire show. Here are some pictures from the night.

Happy 4th of July!

New Trick...

Connor has a new trick! :) It seems that he is starting to understand the camera and that we are taking pictures of him. Every time we get the camera out he looks and smiles. Now, he may just be looking at the red light, but at least it is a start! Here are a few pictures we got of him eating dinner the other night. He is really posing for the camera! :)

Chicago Visit

Connor and I headed up to Chicago last week. We spent a few days with Erin, Kendall, Tom and Jan (Erin's parents). We basically just hung out at the Cowan's with the kids and had a great time! Er and I got to catch up and the kids got to spend some time together.

I then headed over to Ben and Julia's new house for the remainder of the weekend. My parents were also up visiting them so we were all able to hang out. Their new home is BEAUTIFUL and I am so glad I was able to see it so soon after they moved in. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures, but intend to the next time I am up! We hung out at the Taste of Crystal Lake, had yummy Chicago style pizza at Georgio's on Saturday night and then headed home on Sunday after a yummy breakfast.

It was a great trip spending time with the people I love.

P.S. I did a HORRIBLE job of taking pictures on this trip...I am still working on getting better at this! :)

Connor and Kendall LOVED playing in the pool together!

First...Of Many Injuries

Connor received his first "boo boo" when he rolled in to the corner of the stair a few weeks ago. I know it is kind of hard to see, but it was something I wanted to document. I am sure there will be many, many more where this came from...I can already tell Connor is going to be a rough and tumble boy! :)

You can kind of see the little cut above my eye on my eyebrow...

Jamie's Visit

My dear friend from college, Jamie Worland, came down to visit in June. We had a great time hanging out at the Indians game (Connor's first baseball game), spending time at the pool and then a Girls Night Out on Friday night. It was so great to spend a few days with her...come back to visit anytime, Jamers! :)

Connor at the pool...Jamie took this great picture of him! :) I wish he would eat green veggies so his nose was not orange/yellow all the time! :)

Anne Byron and all her gear ready for the pool! :)
