the fourth

The fourth has come and gone once again this year. It's a favorite holiday of ours...living out the joys of summer to their fullest and making memories that last a lifetime. Here's what we did... campfire nights with sparklers, fireworks & roasted marshmallows on the sidecamp outs on the trampoline
late-night fireworks shows in the park
with pony rides too
Baby's first 4th of July
she liked the pretty fireworks
family picnics with cousins...and more fireworksAnd tired babies who had too many late nights...I love the fourth. :)

My pregnancy is continuing to go pretty smoothly...I'm still in shock and awe. Here's a three-month belly shot for all those that have been asking. :)
Baby is ten months old. The other evening our family just sat around and we were completely entertained by this little girl. She seemed to know we were all laughing at her which made her act even sillier. I just love her laugh...especially when daddy kisses and tickles her...it's that gut-laugh...so sweet. We've taught her how to say "hi". She does it on her own terms though...it cracks me up when all of a sudden out of the blue she will say it in her sweet little voice. The other day at the pool she said hi to a little two-yr. old boy. And last night when we arrived at my parents to drop her off for babysitting, a sweet little hi came out of her mouth as soon as we walked in the door and she saw everyone sitting around the table. Daddy has taught her to say "hi dadadada". She stands on her own and has taken a couple steps. She loves exploring her world. She opens kitchen cabinets and finds all kinds of treasures inside. She's more content playing with pots and pans instead of her baby toys. She tries to copy things we do like wave bye-bye, dance and shake her head from side to side. She's learning to sign please.
