Sawyer basketball camp

Sawyer did a basketball camp last week and had the best time.
He is really getting so into sports and it's been so fun to play with him and teach him all about the different games too.  He has a natural athletic ability and we are so proud to watch him try new things.

Miller Kate || 11 months

Dear Miller Kate,
 
You are 11 months old!  And still such a happy, content, smiley girl whom we all adore!  You brighten all of our days and we all love our "sister" to pieces.
 
You got a bunch of new teeth this past month.  You now have 4 on top and 2 on bottom.  Your toothy little smile is just the cutest!  You weigh around 20 lbs. or so and are around 28 inches long.  You are wearing size 4 diapers and size  12 or 18 month clothes.
 
You are still the BEST sleeper.  You go to bed around 7 (you are starting to stay up later some nights which is nice) and you wake up around 6:30.  You still take 2 great naps a day - morning and afternoon usually around 2 hours each.  You are on a really great schedule but can also adapt pretty easily depending on what we have going on.
 
You are a great eater.  You are still nursing 4 times a day.  And you eat 3 meals.  Still some baby food but more and more table food - alot of what we are eating.  Your current favorites are blueberries, crackers, peas, corn and bread.  You aren't too picky.
 
You still aren't full on crawling.  You are so close and can pretty much get whatever you want by rolling or scooting.  And you also have 2 big brothers who basically entertain you all day and bring you all your toys and are constantly doting on you making it pretty hard for you to learn new tricks. ;)
 
You still love your thumb, being outside, and chewing on everything.  Your brothers are your favorite and you spend alot of your time just watching and laughing at them.  Your hair is really starting to grow in and looks so cute with a little bow (without a headband!).
 
Everyday with you is just such a gift and we are so grateful for the past 11 months with you!  We love you more and more every single day!
 
Some pictures of you at 11 months:

taste of summer

It's not officially summer until you dig into your first watermelon, right?!
I could eat her up, I love her so!
 













And this is why she's still not crawling and will probably be 2 before she walks. 
But that's what big brothers are for, I suppose. ;)

Summer {water} fun

Summer is officially here...has been for about a month and we've been living it up. I'm staying home with the kiddies full time now - my project work wrapped up the same week school let out so that worked out well.  I'm not sure what the future holds as far as working or not working outside of the home so for now I am soaking up this time with my three favorite little people.
 
The boys are loving the water which is good because it is HOT already.  I took some pictures one afternoon while we were swimming at my mom and Bob's neighborhood pool and then on the slip and slide one afternoon.
 

















 
There's not much time these days for blogging and I don't pick up my big camera as much as I want to.  But I'm always so glad when I do.  I love to capture them and our days.
