Such a GREAT day...

This cousin on mine.... She is SUCH a dear!! With a beautiful, sweet, caring and extremely giving nature she is a gem to have around!! We love her around here! 

A bike ride through the Blue Heron Reserve.... Not much beats that! A gorgeous day, a bike and a bird book... Right up Ranen's alley - she loved lookig up birds and their details! And with such a fabulous teacher - Larissa you are a gem! 




Pointing out the red-winged black bird!

Reading about the herons before we approached the nests... Did you know they lay between 2-4 eggs? And so many other neat details like flight paths etc.... Ranen soaked up every detail! 
Can't wait till we see you again Larissa... You are loved! ��

Katie is 1!!

Our little missy moo
is one already? How can it be!
I told Ben "pretty sure we missed a month or two
last year because that went SO fast!"
Also, Katie is so petite compare to out other two kidlets
that she seems about 7 months or so in our books...
 
7 teeth, working hard on the eighth!
blue eyes,
loves when Ranen plays with her,
doesn't love being picked up by her so much...,
petite,
snuggly,
Crawling around 10 1/2 months
says "dada, mama, num num, woof, moo"
fake laughs when we laugh,
enjoys a wide variety of food,
very vocal,
loves water,
walking around things,
adores Owen,
sticks her tongue out when she's teething,
super ticklish,
infectious giggle,
climbs in dishwasher,
taken 3 steps,
pokes holes through the toes of her sleepers,
loves bike rides!
 
A year ago... we headed to the hospital
to get induced,
she came the quickest of these three
and I treasured many days of cuddle time...
we hermitted with the measles going around
and spent many hours enjoying our newborn!
 
a precious year ago... 
 




endless hours of snuggles...

 many many many hours spent in the huggaloops carrier close to mommy... 
as a babes and a little older...
she LOVES being close to mom!
