5 Months

I say it again, wow, time really flies!!
Callie is now 5 months and in the last 2 weeks we have had some big changes. I am now back to work - very bittersweet (sad to be not spending all my time with Callie, but happy to be back with the kids at school) and Callie is in daycare. Preston and I were expecting a few days of adjustment with Callie but she surprised us once again. Her first day of daycare and it was like she had always been going - we had no hiccup in behavior, sleeping, or anything (makes going back to work much better!).
Here's an update on our bug:

  • She can't quite decide whether or not she wants to sleep all the way through the night, so at this point in time, she gets up at a very awkward time (5:00) - tough to put back to sleep but I am not willing to get up for the day at that time!
  • She is getting stronger every day and can now lift her chest off the ground when doing tummy time.
  • She can sit on her own (with tons of pillows around her) for a bit before she topples over.
  • Even though it might not look like it, she is getting hair (finally).
  • She continues to smile and laugh - she is totally daddy's little girl and absolutely lights up whenever she sees him.
  • (I think she learned this next one at daycare) She now chirps VERY loudly when she wants something. If she's hungry, she will give a short, loud wail for one second, look around the room to see who is going to respond, then if no one does, she does it again.
  • The number one word we use to describe her is an observer - she watches and looks at everything around her all the time! (daycare even commented on that)
  • She LOVES being outside and music (especially daddy singing to her)

  •  Hanging with Daddy
    Getting strong during tummy time - excuse the drool!
    Walking with Mommy - sitting like a big girl in her stroller!

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
