These are a few of my favorite things....

Callie has started to become particular about some things. Here are a few of her favorites:

She prefers this over the rocker, it only takes about 5 minutes or so to put her to sleep. I'm hoping to bounce those last 10 pounds off!

I don't want to use the word lazy.....but.......she has decided that breast feeding is a bit too much work so we have had to give her the bottle for some feedings. Trying to stick with it though....

She LOVES her tongue! It is always out of her mouth. She also loves to lick things - blankets, burp rags, arms, anything!

Callie does best when there is a bit of sound around. She sleeps best when there is a bit of noise - this lamb creates some white noise that helps her sleep (thanks aunt Katy and uncle Preston)!

Greatest invention ever! This lets Preston and I eat dinner together, allows me to shower every day and much, much more....

In the last 2 days, she has started to focus on objects around her. This is by far her favorite (it plays music and lights up). Every time she lays under it, she starts smiling. (Thanks aunt Sarah and uncle Rey!)

She has a bit of a love/hate relationship with her sleep sack. She is not too fond of being swaddled in it (she'll spend about 5 minutes trying to escape - lots of grunting) but she can't seem to sleep without it! We tried to take a few naps without it - very little success. This is a before/after shot - the first picture is what she looks like when we put her down for her nap and the second picture is what we walk into at the end of a nap.

Tummy time! She seems to be an anomaly and loves tummy time. She's getting so strong!

Baths (and holding Dad's hand, of course). A great way to end the day....and always a great excuse to be naked!

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
