Eleven Months!

Time continues to creep up quicker and quicker. Our little boy is now 11 months old with a lot of crazy and exciting changes.
  • He is getting closer and closer to walking. He has taken three or four steps together although it always seems to happen when he is distracted and wanting something. 
  • He is starting to recognize many words now - including hot, bye-bye, kiss, ball, sister, mom, dad, yucky, no, more, all done. 
  • He loves to give kisses to people and wave hello and good bye to people. 
  • He is getting very good at remembering things - if you say a cupboard is yucky, every time he goes back into the kitchen he will point to it and make his yucky sound. If you tell him something is hot, he point to it over and over and make his hot sign. 
  •  He loves the cats and will chase them all over the house. He will crawl around the house calling them and looking for them until he finds them hidden under the bed - ha!
  • He is obsessed with putting things into other things. Blocks into a house, animals into his ark, shapes into buckets - whatever! Callie has taken advantage of this quite a bit, she puts her toys in front of him that need to be cleaned up and let him 'play' and put them away for her. 
  • He is a very picky eater! Some of his favorites include lasagna, meatballs, sausage, fruit, pancakes and cheese. He truly dislikes eggs, lunch meat, oatmeal, and pretty much any vegetable. His lunches pretty much always consist of cheese and fruit with some sort of hidden vegetable. 
  • He has become a great napper! Right now he is still taking 2 naps and sleeps hard. He is good at napping pretty much anywhere - which comes in handy as he is dragged around to different places quite a bit. 
Liam loves to help me do the dishes. He is helping me empty the clean dishes..... 

And then he went ahead and reloaded it for me....

He loves looking out the window. He just sits there and waves to all the cars as they drive by. 

Happy, happy boy when he wakes up.

We've had some nice sunny (cold) days that has allowed us to enjoy some park time. Liam is thrilled that he doesn't always have to be in the stroller. 

Callie is just thrilled to have someone extra to play with. 

And on our rainy days we headed to the local indoor playground....

Enjoying the water balloon pad. 

Building some super cool towers (just to knock them back over)

For this meal, apparently the plate was more exciting than the food. 

Had a great day at the zoo.....

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
