11 Months

Time continues to fly. I am a bit behind on this post - 18th is close enough to the 10th right?
Its hard to believe that in one month she will be one year old. This is the best picture we could get - as she now moves around SO much now.
Here's another one that Preston really liked (she was playing peek a boo).
Here's what's new:
  • She now has 5 teeth (almost 6 - just waiting for it to pop out). Two on the bottom and three on top.
  • She is walking and very happy about it. Very rarely does she crawl anywhere.
  • She learned how to stand from a sitting position. She got very tired of walking somewhere, falling down in the middle of the room, then having to crawl over to something to stand up. I think it only took her 3-4 days to figure it out after she learned how to walk.
  • Callie loves to climb things and move things out of her way. She is a very determined little girl (wonder where she gets that?). We can no longer put a piece of furniture in front of something we don't want her to get to....she WILL figure out a way to move it.
  • She is now obsessed with flushing the toilet. Yup, lots of fun!
  • She seems to be growing every day and is very verbal! At least around Preston and I - she's a bit shy in every other situation.
  • She is obsessed with pointing at trees and lights. She'll sit there and point at them and repeat "da" over and over and over and over.
  • She now can now sign please, milk, more, and all done. Still working on thank you.
  • Still no hair!

Now that she can walk, her favorite thing to do is to walk between Preston and I, running into us and giving us big hugs. I found this cute onsie in her drawer - how perfect!

When people come to stay from out of state. it is always a good excuse to see the touristy parts of Washington that you kind of forget about living here. We took a quick trip up to Snoqualmie Falls.

I love that smile!

When I am cooking dinner, she loves to pull things out of the cupboards. When I looked over one day, she had climbed in a was so proud and happy.

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
