One Month Old

It is hard to believe that our baby girl is officially one month old! Amazing!
She continues to be a happy, active baby. When she cries, it is always for a reason (although we are not always quick to figure out what the reason is, we are getting better) - either she needs a diaper, food, or to sleep (sometimes she just needs a hug too). Preston is officially back to work, it has been fabulous having him home for so long and he and Callie have truly bonded during that time.
We don't have any official stats for one month (she doesn't need to go back to the doctor until 2 months) but she continues to grow and get longer by the minute. We are continually learning new things about her:
  • She LOVES baths! If we would let her, she would just sit in the tub all day - and afterwards she is always relaxed and calm.
  • She is a fabulous traveler. We recently got the opportunity to be a part of Adam and Rachel's wedding. Callie was fabulous on the long car ride (the 4 hour car ride took us much longer due to having to stop and feed - although Preston always was able to find a Burgerville for us to stop and feed at - ahh, how life has changed), slept wonderfully in the hotel, and loved all the attention she got from friends and family.
  • She continues to be a wonderful sleeper and will go for 4 - 5 hour stretches. She wakes us grunting, not crying and will spend 5 minutes stretching before she decides it is time to eat.
  • Feeding has had its challenges but we seem to be back on track.....(keeping my fingers crossed)
  • She is much more attentive these days and loves to stare at people and things around her. I took her to church and she was fabulous the whole time. Even though she was super tired, she refused to sleep and spent the whole time looking around.
  • She loves tummy time and keeps getting stronger every day!

    Often times, I wish that I could sleep as good as (or anywhere) she can!
    Tummy time can certainly be exhausting

Mothers Day Weekend

We had amazing weather for Mother's Day weekend and tried to enjoy every minute of the summer.

On Sunday, Callie and I ran the color run. A 5k through Seattle which involved a lot of dust and color. It was a lot of fun and  I was super proud of her and how she pushed herself.

Before the race. Shirts are still white and hair is still normal color. We ran with one of Callie's good friends and her mom. 
Bubbles! That was a highlight for Callie, she loved running through the bubbles. 
Done! Color and dust everywhere!

We spent Saturday with Katy and Dennis and explored Renton and a local beach and park.

The gang!

Saturday was so beautiful that we actually went home and the kids ran in the sprinklers and played in the bathing suits all day. 

Summer Fun

As I'm getting ready to post this, I realize that I was very bad about taking pictures this summer. None of these pictures capture all of the fun that we had. We hiked, camped, played, and stayed as busy as possible. 
Liam loves his sister so much!
Using a log as a boat - trying his best not to get wet :)
Playground fun
We spent a lot of this summer at the rock climbing gym. They both seem to love it.
Callie married Captain America this summer
This summer we tried the water park down the hill from us with some friends. I was holding off on going because I wasn't sure how I would be able to watch both kiddos and feel that they are safe but it ended up being so much fun and they kids did fabulous. 

One of the hikes we did this summer was to the natural water slides. The kids spent HOURS in the freezing cold water.

Sun River 2018

For mid winter break, we headed up to Sun River for the week. As always, it did not disappoint! The kids had a blast spending the week with Grandma and Grandpa, all their cousins, skiing, and playing in the snow. This year we started with no snow on the ground and ended with a blizzard that made driving home very tricky. Liam stayed home with Grandma while Callie and I skied. Although it is always hard to be left behind, he loves his Grandma so much and they had an absolute blast together. I'm also realizing that she took all the pictures so I have very few with her...major bummer!

We celebrated these 2 boys on this trip. 
When there is this many kids, you not only take over the whole run but there it is also very difficult to figure out which way to go....

Grandpa and his gang
Pretty soon we won't all fit on one couch.
Unfortunately our sister/dad ski day did not go as planned. Sarah took a spill the day before and was not able to ski with us for the rest of the trip
