Mary Poppins Sing-a-Long

Tessa loved it! About 45 minutes in I googled the running time. 2 hours 20 minutes...about 2 hours too long for Caroline. She ate a LOT of popcorn.

Another tooth

Colin is cutting tooth number 3. Maybe he will sleep better once its in?!?!

The Bubba Fairy

The Bubba fairy came and took Caroline's pacifiers. Lots of sobbing at nap time. But thankfully at bedtime she went happily to sleep. And hasn't been up since...

Colin just took 6 steps!?!?!

Oh boy...I was hoping I had a little more time...

And here he is with our Christmas tree. A gate/enclosure of some sort will clearly be necessary...

Big Girl bed!

I took the front off Caroline's crib and turned it into a toddler bed. Surprisingly she was very excited! She usually hates change, but this one has been welcomed with enthusiasm! She knows she can get in and out...but hasn't tried to get out at nap/bed time...yet. It's only a matter of time.

She loves it when I let Colin sit in there too. And he is generally thrilled with the idea as well.

5k fit challenge

Tim and I did a 5k obstacle course. It was a fun afternoon with friends!

A little laundry fun

Everyone swings

Birthday party

This was taken pre-party. Hopefully I'll be able to upload some actual party pictures. A great time was had by all!

Cousin Jude!

Jude and Colin! Quite the size difference now. With Jude only 3.5 months younger than Colin it will be so fun to see them grow up together.

Colin (almost 6 months)
