Jumping Bean

I couldn't decide which smile I liked best, so I posted them all. Rachel really likes to jump. She jumps on my lap all the time but she has recently discovered a love for our "johnny jumpy."

In case you are wondering, I have to stuff a blanket in there with her to keep her from flopping around.

I love to watch her cute little froggy legs!

Rice Cereal

Rachel got to try some rice cereal for the first time. She loved it!

She likes to "help."

Here is the video of her very first bites.

Helper Hannah

Hannah really likes to help me take care of Rachel. Usually she brings me a diaper, or hands me the powder, or gets her binky for me. But lately she wants to do more. The other day when I had to make dinner Hannah told me she would watch Rachel. I sat Rachel down on her boppy and came back a few minutes later to check on them and I found Rachel happily playing with all the toys that Hannah brought to her. Hannah was so proud.

A few weeks ago we went to the Seattle Art Museum. There was a lot of modern and abstract art. It was interesting.

This was called "raw sewage" or something like that. If you looked inside the bowl, you'd find out why. I wouldn't have posted this picture except that I wanted to tell this funny story. Before we left the Museum Hannah had to go to the bathroom. When we got inside she started to cry because she wanted to go in the colored potty. I just laughed.

Hannah's favorite part of the museum was the signs that said "Do not touch." It's hard to tell in this picture, but she is touching the sign.

Ok. This is art? Maybe I'm just uncultured, but I just don't get it. If you can't tell, It's a whole room dedicated to this one piece of art. The art is 4 squares of scattered newspaper with random blue squares painted onto them.

This was one of the most popular exhibits. It was a blank wall with nails. You could hammer something to the wall with one of the nails.
There was some art that I really enjoyed at the SAM. I just didn't take any pictures. All in all, it was a fun night.

Dan's good friend Jim and his cute little family were in town from Texas last week and we got to see them. Their daughter, Cambry, is 13 months. We took the girls to our little zoo.

Hannah and Cambry had a fun time playing together. They liked to chase each other and scream. I wish I had taken a video because they were so cute. Maybe next time.

Thanks for the visit Jim and Marissa! We had a fun day!

Rachel Goes Swimming

Little Rachel got to go swimming for the first time last week. Our friends, the Allreds, came over and we took the kids down to the pool.

Dancin Girls!

First, let me start by saying that yes, I do dress Hannah everyday. I promise. She just prefers to So, once again, sorry about the nakedness. There. Now that that's said, aren't they so cute?!!? I love to watch how little Rachel's eyes light up whenever she see's Hannah. Rachel is already trying so hard to be just like her big sister. She'll be dancin' on her own in no time!
