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.

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

Birthday…

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!

Bikes

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