Big Girl!

 Little Miss Daphne is getting so big! I can't believe my baby is 10 months old. Her newest accomplishment is pulling herself up on the furniture. She is really good at it, but so far no "furniture walking".....yet. I am in no hurry to have this girl walking.

 She and Baxter have a pretty cute relationship. She loves to be near him, especially when he has snacks to hand out. She looks like a dog begging for food.

 Daphne had her 9 month well visit, which was more like a 10 month visit. She weighed in at 19 lbs, which is what she weighed in December. No worries though, she is perfectly healthy. She loves to eat food, and she has about two months left of breastfeeding, she better enjoy it before she gets cut off :) She is a good little girl, and we are enjoying this fun time!

Nudist Camp

Why would any kid want to run around in a soggy diaper and shorts, when they can just be NAKED!!!! The boys had so much this past weekend playing outside in the water. This picture of Bax and Jackson is quite possibly my most favorite picture of them ever. Thank goodness you can't see their little boy parts, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to put it on my blog :)

Backyard Fun

Thanks to Auntie Mary for these fabulous photos! My only regret is that Daphne is in her jammies. Oh well. Derek had been on a mission to find the perfect swing set, and thanks to Craigslist he finally found one! Baxter loves it, and Daphne loves the baby swing. With summer finally being here, we anticipate many hours spent in the yard.

For Easter, we bought Bax this set of golf clubs. With some practice, and a few lessons from Daddy, he is a pro.

Watch Out Michael Phelps!

Baxter had his first swimming lessons last Saturday. He did so well! Daphne and I watched from the sidelines as Derek braved the frigid 82 degree water :) He was a natural in the pool, we were so proud!

worst blogger of the year award goes to.......ME!!

wow. I knew it had been awhile since my last post, but I didn't realize it had been THAT long. Yikes. We have been busy with everyday life. Nothing too exciting. We did take a trip up to Thousand Oaks to visit Dirk and Cotty and their lovely kids. It was fun. I'm pretty sure the highlight for Baxter was the fire station. Duh. Baxter also somewhat conquered his fears of the swing at the park. Daphne has been keeping busy as well. She has had several lunch dates with her baby BFF Gretchen (daughter of chelsey and danny). Both kids are growing up way too fast, and are getting to be so big. Here are some pictures.....

Cousin Love

This is just too cute not to post.

Auntie Kerie has a fancy camera that can capture images of these wild and crazy kids, without the typical blurry issues. I am so happy to have these pics to post on my blog. Having Jackson as a cousin has been so much fun, and we all expect it to only get better!

The Holidays

My mom sent me some good pics from the holidays. I really should start taking my own pics, but I suppose my hands are a little full these days :)
Daphne and I Christmas morning.

Baxter at my Grandmas on Christmas Eve. He stayed in the playpen while we ate Dinner. Pretty considerate of him.

Grammy Pammy and baby D.

Sometimes Daddy lets Bax handle a real bottle.

Beautiful Aunt Anne and Daphne.

My cousin Nikki and baby Daphne.

Auntie Jac, Patty and Grammy having fun with Daphne in the kitchen.

Bax was so excited to open his first present of the season.

Yo Gabba Gabba shoes!

Showing off his new shoes. Thanks Jim and Jac!

Obviously these pictures are from various events. We had a pre-Christmas celebration so we could be with Jim and Jac. They left on Christmas Eve to go on their late honeymoon to New Zealand. Lucky!! We spent Christmas Eve at my Grandma Daphnes house, and Christmas day and night was spent mostly with Dereks family. I know grandpa John must have some pictures from all of the Middagh festivities.....hint hint :)
