Boston & Maine

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Boston and Kennebunkport, Maine. First stop Boston- to visit some old college friends as well as our precious Jess who recently relocated. We had a great time exploring the city, and eating some fantastic food. Next stop Kennebunkport- what an incredible place! We enjoyed some precious family time away from the craziness of everyday life. We also enjoyed eating lobster rolls twice a day.

Father's Day

E and Daddy enjoyed their time together on Father's day watching the US Open after church. Thank you Daddy for all that you do for us! It is so evident how much little E loves you already- she just lights up anytime she sees you. It is such a blessing to have such a wonderful husband and Daddy like you. Thank you for all that you do for our little family! We love you!

Favorite Places

With E's new mobility, I am constantly finding her under the coffe table and under this chair. How she gets under the chair I'm really not sure...she's not even crawling yet, but she sure gets herself where she wants to go!

8 Months Old

One of E's new faces- she opens her mouth excitedly and
makes funny noises. It's the cutest!

Laughing for Daddy.

Showing off her pearly whites.

Miss Independent

We have been working on the sippy cup for weeks, and E just hasn't been too interested. The other day I brought it out again and she deftly grabbed it from me by both handles and drank from it all by herself. It's funny how things seem to suddenly click with the little ones. She has also recently been interested in feeding herself with the spoon. She still needs a little help with that one. Another new skill that I have yet to capture on film- she is thoroughly enjoying little juice boxes. She can down an entire box minutes!

Little Horsey

E was in a particularly photogenic mood this day. There were too many cute options to choose from, so I picked my top four...

Just Peachy

Yesterday I gave E a new treat- some frozen peach slices tucked neatly into her little mesh feeder. She really enjoyed feeding herself. The second photo is classic grouchy/sleepy E. The eyes say it all.

A Night Off

J. and I got to enjoy a glorious evening alone together last night as we dined on delicious food and sipped some fine wine. This was all possible because our dear friends offered to watch Ella for the night. This was a big deal for me as we have only ever left her with my mom. I'm glad to report that she hardly noticed we were gone. And why would she since she had some much fun! Toni, Karisa and Lucy thank you!!

Having lots of fun!
