Summer…

We had the BEST summer.  The weather in Seattle was near perfect, only raining a few (and much needed) days.  We LOVED anytime we could spend in the water.

We went to the zoo a handful of times.  Amelia loved telling the cow her “Interrupting Cow Knock Knock Joke”.  He was not amused.

We enjoyed dancing to Casper Babypants at our neighborhood park.

And we spent many hours playing in our backyard.

4th of July

4th of July is turning in to one of my favorite holidays. We start each 4th by participating in the West Seattle Kids Parade with the Jeannots.

Then we head home and get the house ready for our annual 4th of July BBQ.  We decided to get a bouncy house this year and it did not disappoint.

Summer Swim Lessons

25 Jun

Amelia has started summer swim lessons and she is hooked.  She is going 5 days a week and she would go 7 if she had it her way.

Image

She is the first to volunteer for everything, including jumping off the diving board.  I love watching my little fishy swim in the water.

Summer Lovin’

We are loving the sunny weather and long days.  This weather makes me wish summer lasted longer than 3 short months…

Last Day of Preschool

25 Jun



Image

 

June 12th was Amelia’s last day of school at A Child Becomes Preschool.  She finished her first year as a Caterpillar with Teachers Jan and Hope.

Image

She has loved school so much this year and I hope she continues her love of school and learning.  Her teachers wrapped up the school year with a party blowing bubbles and eating popsicles.  Perfect way to end the year.

Glasses

With the recommendation of Amelia’s fabulous preschool teacher we went and got her eyes checked and found out she needed glasses. Amelia is loving her newest accessory (and the fact that she can see clearly now).  I am loving how adorable she looks in them.

Hazel

20 May

Image

Hazel is 14 months and continues to be oh, so sweet.  She is officially walking and loves collecting things on her walks, especially her sister’s boot.

Image Image

She loves books and her dolly.  We still haven’t found a food she doesn’t like.  She has 12 teeth and just got 4 molars in one week, that was hard!

Image

She loves to explore things on her own and has started even saying a few words…dada, momma, bye bye, no no no, bug bug (our cat), and mmmmm!

Image

Hazel you complete our family just perfectly.  You fill our hearts with so much love and joy.  We love you to the moon and back!
