Spring is here!

The kids couldn't be happier about the warm weather we've had lately. The snow is completely gone and we've been spending lots of time outside. We've got lots of outside projects lined up and first on the list is raking up the leaves that didn't fall until after the snow came last year.

Does Every Little Girl Do This?

Does every little girl sneak away with scissors and give herself a haircut at some point? I did, and Cambria just did. I was so upset at first; all those beautiful curls, gone. She loves it though and it's so much easier to wash and keep tangle free. Unfortunately, she's got so many cowlicks that it's always going in several directions at once now that it's so much lighter.

Six Months

I can't believe Afton is six months old already! I also can't believe all the things she's capable of already. So far she can:

  • Crawl on her hands and knees; she can get anywhere she wants to go (she's actually been doing this since 4 1/4 months!)

  • Go from lying down to sitting up without help

  • Pull herself up to standing on furniture, toys or whatever else she can reach (she started this at 5 months, I couldn't believe it the first time I looked over and saw her standing up like that)

  • Stand completely unsupported for several seconds

She's loving solids and I've had to get used to making baby foods again. Her favorites are banana and avocado. Cambria and Magnus still absolutely adore her and it's such a blessing to have two such great little helpers. We're so happy to have this sweet, amazing little girl in our family. We can't wait to see what she'll start doing next
