Happy Birthday Lilly!

I know they are a little late, but here are the pictures from Lilly's birthday! We had a nice time. Steph & Isaac came for a morning visit, then Juju, Lilly & I headed downtown for a walk around and some shopping. It was really chilly, so we tucked away in a little bakery and had a snack, then headed home for some spaghetti and cake with Tom. Lilly loves to slup up her spaghetti! Look for the videos soon!!

We had a lot of fun! Lilly loves her costume (she picked it out herself - no joke) and I think she will wear it a few more times soon just because Tom and I crack up laughing as she wiggles around with her tail wagging. Anyway, hope yours was great too!

Oh yeah, Lilly has discovered a new toy and started 'walkering' around the house. We have a cute video I'll post too! Enjoy!!

Fall in Portland (and Seattle)!

Well, I got my act together! Here are two more albums to enjoy. One is of some cute shots of the kids over the last few months and the other is from Garrett's first soccer match. His team is doing really well this year. They have a winning record and great coaches. We love to go watch him play!

Hello! We are still here!

Well, it has been a long time since I posted... I am so sorry. Between the travel, the move, the baby, a new job and all the other great things going on in life the blog fell behind. However, I am back and I learned a new trick! Thanks to an old friend at my new job, I learned how to post an album to our blog. The first one I have ready is from our summer vacation (In early July)! We took both kids on a three week, 5000 mile trek through 14 states and 4 National Parks. We had a great time and over 600 pictures when we got home... I've sorted through them and put some of the really good ones up to enjoy! Keep checking back I am working on two more long overdue albums this week! Much love!

Blah, blah, blah!

The sun came out, for the first time in days, right when Lilly was getting ready for bed last night... She had a few choice words for that sunshine!!

Sitting Up!

So she's really doing a good job of sitting, but you have to catch her in the right mood. Otherwise, she's happy to roll around and look at you that way...

Rice Cereal, Um Um Um!

Look Ma! No Hands!!

Well, this is strange!

Oh... Now I get it Momma.

I'm not sure what to think just yet. Can I think about it for awhile?

It's been a great weekend. Wendy and Chris came out to see us. I decided to start Lilly on solids while I had them here to enjoy it with me. She did really well! I still think she eats less than she gets on her bib. Lilly is very interested in Vivian. Vivian is still wondering what this whole being on the outside thing is all about!

Look Ma, No Chair!!

She's almost there! Here's some of our progress towards sitting on her own!

April Fun!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! What 9 year old wouldn't want to wake up with his favorite pooch sharing his pillow?!?

Well, April has been lots of fun. Garrett's 9th birthday, Lilly's christening, both Grandmas and both Godparents visiting, Easter, Tom's departure and a week long trip to Seattle! Except for Tom leaving it's been a great month. Here are a few pictures.

Lilly goes swimming!

We stayed in a hotel in Seattle last weekend and Lilly got her first dip in the pool... Big bro still out paces her, but he better watch out!

Trip To Florida

Sittin' on the dock of the bay...

Yes Mike, that's the real trophy!

Well, we did it! We traveled cross country with Lilly. We had a great trip (despite the flu and the cold weather)! Lilly got to meet Nana & Papa for the first time and Tom got to go to Yankee spring training!

Wow! Where did February go?!?!

Garrett does such a great job of being a big brother!

Garrett and Tom braved the weather last weekend to go tide pooling at Salt Creek. Unfortunately, the tide didn't cooperate! Garrett came home soaked to his knees!!

We kept bugging them. He was so cute. He read to her until she fell asleep there and then he just kept on going! (Notice the thumb in the mouth!)

I took this one on our way out the door to pick up Tom. Isn't she cute?!?

So, it has been a busy month! Tom is home and we are all so happy! Garrett is doing great in school and doing a spring soccer camp twice a week. Lilly has given us one big belly laugh (we keep trying to get more) and just started pushing up on her elbows this morning! Here are a few pictures of the kids this month! Love you all!

Oh My It's Bow-mania!!

Auntie Amber (being in house with all boys - except Molly the dog) decided to make Lilly some bows. Did she ever do a great job!! Here are a few of her masterpieces!

Little Scooter

Lilly is starting to scoot herself across they bed towards me. She is really strong and able to hold her head up well, but when she scoots she can't move her head forward. So, she doesn't get too far... Here are some more pictures from this week!

Tummy Time

We have had a quiet week here. Here's a quick video of Lilly trying to talk. She has a few really vocal moments everyday. Of course, I never have the camera with me then!
