Milk Buddies

Now that A is holding her own bottle (Woohoo!), the gals can enjoy a milk break together from time to time.  A is also starting to crawl around a little bit, which means we are much better housekeepers again.  She is also enjoying some baby finger foods, even though she doesn't have any teeth yet. 

M is getting very good at talking and enjoys repeating what other people say.  She loves to swim, ride her trike, and play with A.  She is having a hard time with the baby gate up on the stairs, since she can't get to the play room by herself anymore. 

We are enjoying the summer, even though we haven't taken any big trips.  We are working on building a pergola above the back patio, which will finally give us some shade back there.  I have been working on lots of other projects inside the house, most of which I blog about on my craft blog.  Chris has been enjoying his free time since he graduated from grad school.  Our garden is doing pretty well for the first year.  We hope to get some big pumpkins, watermelons, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and garlic.  We have already been enjoying the Romaine lettuce for weeks.

4th of July

We had a fun 4th this year!  M loved the fireworks and even let us give her sparklers to hold this time.  She still asks if we are doing more fireworks, so I am glad that we still have the 24th.  M was in the Hooper Parade with our ward's Primary, sort of unexpectedly.  We were there to watch the parade, and as our Primary's float went by, they told M to join them, so away she went.  I helped her catch up, and we put her on the float on someone's lap for the rest of the parade while I walked behind.  She still got some candy before hopping on the float, so she was a happy girl.

I thought it would be fun to compare some baby photos of M and A at about the same ages, in the same outfit.  These pictures were all taken in M's room.

I think they look a lot alike as babies.  It will be fun to see how they look as they get older.
