Growing way too fast!

It is amazing to me how quickly time has passed with Callie. She is no longer a baby anymore - just recently I have realized she has turned into a little girl.
Since we are using this as her baby book here's some updates:
  • We are amazed at her language - we spent a few days with some bad sleeping and every since her language has gone crazy. Although I am not sure people ever believe us (besides day care) because she never talks much in front of people. She can count to ten, she knows her colors, knows her shapes, she is stringing multiple words together. It is so nice having her be able to tell us what she wants (instead of us guessing). Car rides are a bit more pleasant now.
  • She knows what she wants and when she wants it. We now hear her say - "no, Callie" which means she is going to do it on her own. Often she will pull a book off the shelf for mommy and one for Callie. Don't think about trying to read her the one she picked for herself.
  • She now asks for hugs! My favorite part of the day - typically it is when she is upset or hurt and she will stop whatever she is doing (normally crying), look at you, put her arms out, and say hug. Once you give her a hug, she runs off smiling.
  • She gives real kisses and can say I love you!
  • She continues to be very quirky - laughing at very random times. You can't but help laugh along.
  • She loves to cook and I can't get much done in the kitchen without her.
  • She has become attached to Hop Hop - a kangaroo from Grandma and Grandpa. Our hopes that when we try to get rid of the pacifier (yes, I know...it's time) that she will be totally fine with just Hop Hop.
  • Day care has taught her to use the word "mine" when someone is trying to take a toy away from you. I understand why they have done it but I am a bit done with it. It has backfired a bit with her at home and we hear it a lot! Preston and I are trying VERY hard to get her to learn the word share.....
  • She is very active - still loves to be outside (the bike was a big hit) and she loves to dance, jump, or just run around crazy.
  • She is very caring towards her friends. It bothers her when other kids are crying, she will walk over to them and try to figure out how to make them feel better.

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.
