Guess Who's Seven Months Old A While Ago! LadyBear!

I just realized I never posted LadyBear's seven month pictures!  Things have been a bit crazy around here!

This month has been one of not feeling so hot for our little miss, so our pictures are not as plentiful or smiley as usual :)  Also, forgive the lighting and focus in these pictures...some setting has changed on our point-and-shoot camera and I am trying to figure out which one.  Clearly, I am not a photographer :)

Anyway, LadyBear is doing well.  She's been growing up, up, up and loves exploring the world around her.  She loves food, sticking her fingers (or anything really) in her mouth and watching her older brother play baseball in the living room.  Her favorite toy right now seems to be her MULA stacking rings from Ikea.  They are wood and so they're pretty sturdy and I've noticed her lately really trying to put the rings back on the stick.  They're also great for chewing in her mind.

She likes to be in the middle of all the action and for sure wants to be included at each and every meal.  Her naps are going pretty well and she's just starting to sleep better at night (hooray!), so we are very thankful for that.   She chatters away and still sings very loudly in the car. 

Here she is with her newest discovery...walking in her walker.  It's still not her favorite thing to do, but she seems to enjoy it for short periods of time.

And A Fun Day Was Had By All...

Today was a super fun day!  This morning we had the chance to attend a re-creation of a baseball game from the 1860s, complete with uniforms and nicknames.  We all cheered "Huzzah!" when the batter hit a home run and enjoyed comparing how they played the game then to how they play it now (it's pretty different!).  It was a blast and there were all ages there enjoying it together.  One of my favorites was an older gentleman sitting nearby with a shirt that said, "I'm not old, I'm vintage."  Love it. (Here's a local recap of the event, and here are the newspaper's photos.]


After the "vintage" game, we headed on down to the Baylor Ballpark for their Community Tailgate, which involved games, inflatables, face-painting (LittleBear declined), free hot dogs/chips/Blue Bell and a cow milking demonstration during lunch (yes, really).   Lots of fun was had, especially by LittleBear!

Tossing the bean bags...he's way better than Mommy!

 I think his favorite was jumping around in the inflatable dragon.

Today was LadyBear's first experience with baseball and I think she enjoyed it.  Mostly, she enjoyed time with her Daddy...these two are quite the pair:

Lovin' her Daddy kisses!!!

Texas Springtime Tradition: Bluebonnets 2013!

 It's that time of year again!!  Although the Texas Bluebonnets are scarce in our area, we still managed to find a small patch for picture taking in our Easter finery.  LittleBear was very patient and LadyBear was confused as to why I was trying to get pictures of her in a field of flowers.  Oh well, she'll get used to it :)

I thought this one was very sweet of the two of them.  I love how he takes care of her and cares for her!
