Nine months! Nine months is always a hard milestone for me, because it's about the length of a pregnancy, and it is just mind boggling how slow 9 months goes when you are pregnant, and how quickly it goes when you have a sweet baby to take care of! At nine months: Still as happy as ever- loves mommy and only wants to be held by her- says "mama" - likes to play independently with toys on the floor... pulling them out of the bin is the best part- is showing interest in crawling - loves bath time and the pool (splashing!) - likes to sleep in her crib - babbles and "talks" all the time. I just love her to pieces!

I was able to volunteer for Sydney's field trip this year. I had so much fun going with her and watching her with her classmates. We went to an artist's house and saw all the art he made out of metal, and then we went to the park for lunch and field games. Seriously, I just loved watching Sydney laugh and play with her friends. All year, she would come home telling me a story of a "best friend" and it was always about a new person. Sydney is friends with everyone and I love it!
Taking Allie's senior pictures at the lake and watching this family of ducks swim...
Cooper's first birthday party!
A crazy night with two sick kids sleeping in our room. This was after Cooper threw up in the car on the way home from family dinner, and we ran him into the house to throw up more. All the while, Ruby is crying/coughing hysterically. While all of this was going on, Matt pulled the hose out to clean out the car, and I was helping Cooper throw up. When we flushed the toilet, from the first of several, there was a massive leak, which detoured Matt to the basement to figure out where the leak is coming from, having Sydney running through and flushing every toilet in the house. Pure craziness! At this point it was day 6 of sickness for Ruby, and I don't think I've ever had a baby this sick before!
My last day of teaching preschool!
I've been looking forward to this day since we found out we were having a boy... baseball, or in this case t-ball, games are my favorite! We had so much fun watching Cooper play t-ball this season, and had many, many laughs because the boys, who have no idea what they are doing, are just so cute and little! He got to be on a team with his buddies, Hudson and Lewis, which was really fun. Seriously, such a blast! We can't wait for fall ball!
I loved watching him play catcher, and just thought he was the cutest in all that catcher's gear!
There is just something about seeing his name on the back of his jersey, and I just love his batting glove hanging out of his pocket!
Cooper was ALWAYS ready for grounders, and spent most of the games like this.
I'm glad he loves baseball as much as I hoped and thought he would!
