August Updates

We've had a busy August so far!  Now that the month is halfway over, and Chris is done wiping all our computer's drives, I thought I should get back to blogging.  It's been a month of firsts for M.  She turned 18 months on the 10th, so she has been going to Nursery at church.  She still has a hard time with that, but we're working on it.

I finally decided it was time to cut M's hair for the first time, since she has started trying to push it out of her face when it's not in a ponytail.  We gave her some bangs and evened out the back.
I thought this picture was great because of the accidental thumbs-up.

We took M to Lagoon for the first time for Chris's work party.  Last year, she was just a little thing, so we left her with my parents.  I thought she would be into the rides this year, but she actually had a couple of meltdowns.  The rides that we could do with her were okay, but the Baby Boats and Bulgy the Whale were both no-go's. 
Chris put M in the boat, and things were great for a few minutes.
Once the boat started moving, M started screaming, and the lady running the ride stopped it for us after a lap and let M off.  Things weren't all bad, though.  M rode the merry-go-round with us and the Kontiki boat with Chris.

We took M on her first camping trip with Chris's family this last weekend.  The weather was really nice, and we had a lot of fun.  M woke up really cranky from her nap, but she did great that night!  We even woke up before she did in the morning.
We've had so much fun this month!  Thanks to everyone who was a part of it.
