Jump! Jump!


Caitlin’s legs are getting very strong these days, as she practices jumping in her “jumperoo.” She’s got some serious wiggles these days, and we are glad she has this as a way to use up all that extra energy!

A Fun Trip to COSI


Last weekend, we took the girls to COSI. Dakota was very excited about the “Dora and Diego” character exhibit.

COSI-Dakota 1

Welcome to the Dora & Diego Exhibit!

Caitlin enjoyed the baby water table.

Splash! She loved this water table. She was cold and wet by the time she was done, but screamed when I took her out.

We had a ton of fun, but came home exhausted! Here are some of the video highlights of the day:

A Bubbly Bath Kid


Caitlin is definitely a water baby. She really enjoys her bathtime.

Splish Splash…

She knows that she is super silly!

In completely unrelated news, tonight we tried rice cereal for the 3rd or 4th time. This time she opened her mouth and pulled my hand towards her. The food went in and stayed in, and she excitedly grabbed for more. We also introduced bananna babyfood…that was a big hit. Yaay, progress!!!

Caitlin & Dakota Update


It is kind of funny that the last line of the last post says that we will post more when we have time. Honestly, we haven’t had any spare time in the last 4 months. But I am afraid that if I waited until we have time…Chris and I will be retired. I am not even going to attempt to fill you in on the last 4 months right now. Maybe later I will share some of the most memorable moments, but for now I just wanted to post some more recent videos.

Here is a fun video of Caitlin and I having a conversation at 4 months old.

This one is Caitlin trying rice cereal for the first time.

This one is Dakota and her second cousin, Kaylee, taking some time off from their responsibilites as flowergirls to play on the swings. Little girls just being silly.
