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!

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


Husky Game

UW recently had a Girl Scout night at one of the Husky games. Preston was out hunting so I took the kiddos by myself (and met Sarah and Rey there). It went surprisingly well - especially since the game ended up being a 7:30 pm game. Luckily Liam napped the whole way there and was able to rally when it was game time. Callie's highlights of the game was being there with her cousins, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. She wasn't too interested in the football aspect. 
Although the stadium was not loud, Liam insisted on wearing headphones. He didn't take them off once and even fell asleep with them on in the car. 

Enthralled with the marching band
Hopefully some future Huskies!


We are now a family of 4 pretty impressive bike riders.
