Biker Babe!

Ben just can't wait to take his little biker babe for a ride on his motorcycle. He's already found a helmet for her! It'll be a little while before she grows into it so he'll have to wait a little while longer. But won't they be cute on the bike together? : ) And she better get a face shield or she'll lose that paci!

We discovered that Julie L-O-V-E loves being held like this, like she's flying. She just laughs and smiles the whole time. She's our little superbaby!


This week, Julie began eating rice cereal for the first time. I'm sure most of it ended up on the bib instead of in her tummy but it was a good start. Ben was taking pictures of this occasion and Julie was a bit more interested in the camera than the food. She's on her way to solid foods!!

Bring out the spf 50!

At our church Lifegroup meeting last night, we had a cookout and the kids got to jump in the pool for a swim. It was Julie's first swim! And if she's anything like her mommy, she'll love the pool someday. She was a little unsure at first, but she seemed to like having her daddy hold her in the water after a little while. Here are a few pictures of her first swim time with some friends!

Julie's got a boyfriend!

Today Julie and I spent the afternoon with our friend April and her little one, Jackson. We went out to lunch and it was Julie and Jackson's first date! I'm not sure how it went, she slept through most of it and he flirted with other ladies at the restaurant. Oh well. I'm sure they'll still be friends! We had a great time with April and Jackson and we look forward to hanging out with them more often!

It was just a matter of time

Of course once Julie found her foot, she had to do something with it. And what better than to put it in her mouth! She has been busy all evening trying as hard as she can to get that foot in her mouth. She makes us laugh so much. She grabs a hold of her PJ's footie and pulls as hard as she can towards her mouth. I just think she's the best! We call these little PJs "Super Babys" and she becomes our little super-baby, with super baby powers when she wears them. Maybe this is just one of her powers!

Julie's big find!

Julie finally found her foot! : ) She's been trying for a week now to get her hand far enough down her leg to grab a hold of one of her toes and now that she has, she doesn't let go! It's so cool to get to watch her explore and learn about her world, even her own feet!
She's also become more and more aware of the cats. She loves to watch them walk across the room. They like to check her out too. Little do they know what will happen once she is mobile!
