Bryn's 4th Month

24.6 inches & 11 pounds 11 ounces
75th percentile for height, 15th percentile for weight

Backbend Bryn now giggles, has mastered hand gestures, and loves to hold hands. She's in heaven when you tickle her neck and when she's not sucking on her fingers (or her left thumb) she's making funny faces and sucking in her bottom lip. Bryn is trying to figure out how to control what she grabs. She frequently takes her binky from her mouth and plays keep away w/herself, holding the binky by the binky string right in front of her mouth.

Bryn's fauxhawk is getting too tall and going crooked, so we tried a ponytail. For some reason I don't like it as much, so I've resorted to using a flat iron to straighten it out.
Maiki has decided that she'll sleep in her own room if Bryn can sleep there too. She thinks that she and Bryn should share rooms (with bunkbeds), and then we can turn Bryn's room into a playroom. (The scarf is one Maiki made herself-out of toilet paper!)

Maiki and Bryn at 4 months

Camp Champ T-ball

They had a great setup for t-ball. The kids played catch with a velcro ball/mitt, hit off of a stand, and then practiced fielding grounders. My grandpa and Dave stopped by halfway through and Maiki persuaded grandpa to play catch with her.
*If anyone needs a toddler mitt let me know. I have a bunch of them! :)

I thought there was a familiar stalker sitting on the park bench being creepy and watching the kids. After about 10 minutes McCall showed up and we learned that Neil wasn't stalking; he was waiting for McCall and her sister's triplets to show up. They had their hands full, so I took a few pictures for them.

After t-ball we went to Bun Basket for lunch. While driving east on 2nd North a few deer decided to run in front of our car!

Last Day of School

The last day of school is always bitter sweet. It's nice to see some students move on, but there's always a few that you'd love to teach for another year. I was swamped w/yearbook distribution, so I missed a lot of the yearbook signing. I snuck out for a minute and took a picture of our 950+ students signing yearbooks in the gym.

After the kids left the faculty had an awesome luau. I'll post pics when I pick up my other camera.

Memorial Day 2011

Traditionally, my family meets the Sunday before Memorial Day and we go to a number of cemeteries and gravesites together. This year it was raining (again), so Chris and I kept the kids home and visited the Kaysville cemetery on our own, later on that week. I hate this time of year. I'm thankful that my family understands how hard it is to go to my dad's grave. They are very respectful and we always go to his gravesite alone.

The Oaks w/Carrie

My mom's sister, Carrie came to town (from CA) for Reed's high school graduation. She and my mom drove to Idaho for commencement and when they returned we met her for a nice family dinner at the Oaks.

Here are a few cute, random shots of Beemer & Sloner, and then Beemer & Uncle Paul.

Lagoon 2011, Trip #1

We got season passes to Lagoon!!! Last year we bought passes and then found out I was pregnant with Bryn, so I wasn't be able to go on any of the rides. This year I can, but we have to take turns since someone has to watch the baby. :)

The Wyler's have passes too, so we met them there. Bryn LOVED her first day at Lagoon.

On our way out Chris let Maiki play in the fountain...
