Visiting with Aunt Beth

We were so blessed to have Aunt Beth visiting us this past weekend. We had a blast.

Can't wait to see her again this summer!

Faces only a family can Love

These pictures were too good to pass up (good in a very broad sense)

They are faces only a family can love...

Cuddles and Giggles
 A roll of the dice
 Laughing with Papa
 An innocent by-sitter
 Calm and focused
 Confused and uncertain
 Unhappy and sad
 Bored and discouraged
 Happy as a clam
 Sisters forever
 Sparkles and love
 A great Little Big Sister
 Oh know what have they done

 The 2 Sparkle sisters- happy memories

A taste of squirty cream

After several attempts, Cooper has finally had his first official taste of Squirty Cream.

First, a little taste to get him interested

 Then straight from the can
 Not such a fan... but there's always next time.

Playing Catch

One day her talents will catch up with her passion for baseball... but she will always get an A for enthusiasm and we are so proud of her willingness to keep trying.

No captions necessary- the pictures say it all.

Riding her Trike

After months of trying, Lillian can FINALLY ride her tricycle and she loves it.

 And after Daddy made her park her trike in the shed, she took a victory lap around the basketball camp.

9 months old

Cooper and Goober Bear are 9 months old.

He sits
 He leans
 He's as proud as can be
 Always keeping an eye on Mommy
 before attempting a new trick
 Like climbing on the chair
 "Hi Mommy"
This months adventures include a trip to Florida and England- Cooper's first plane rides and celebrating Big Sister Lillian's birthday.

I am sure Cooper will be crawling soon, he is already scooting backwards and walking is not too far around the corner.

Madi Dives

While Lillian has her swim lesson, Madison enjoys some extra time in the pool practicing for swim team or playing around with new tricks.

This week, she attempted (again) to Dive.
She is definitely making progress.

 Cooper and Aunt Beth were there to cheer her on.
