Oregon coast

We celebrated my birthday by going to the Oregon coast for the weekend. We rented a great little cabin in Florence and hung out by the wood burning stove and played on the floor with Calla while it rained and when it was sunny, we went on some great hikes. This was Calla's first time in the backpack and she loved it. The cabin had a great hot tub also, so Courtney and I got to soak everynight after Calla went to bed!

Hiking with Dad on the beach.

Hiking with the family and Calla saw her first waterfall, which she really enjoyed.

Laughing at daddy playing peek-a-boo.

Her new favorite postion and she can pull herself up all by herself now! Calla is looking quite stylin' and comfy in her Patagonia long underwear!

Playing with her favorite blocks!

Hanging with mom at the cabin in the sun.

Somebody clean my nose out for me?

Calla says "Go Cats"

Hi all. We celebrated the Arizona Wildcats victory today that takes them to the Sweet 16 with a victory swing. We tried out our neighbors swing on Saturday and she loved it. I think she is starting to show us her adventurous side. Calla and Aspen have been spending the last few weeks trying to figure out how to share the floor. Now that the little person can move where ever she wants, Aspen sometimes does not know what to do.

Higher Daddy, this is fun!

Calla can barely contain herself during the game!

Yeah we won!

Come and get it Aspen!

Aspen, what do you want to do next?

Calla, I do not know if we should do that.

The pre-game good luck kiss.

Do you see me smiling, it is because the CATS WON!!!
Spring is in the air and I am ready to help mom plant the garden.

Dad and I having fun, anything can be a toy if you want it to be!

So much has happened, we do not know where to begin?

We have been so busy trying to keep up with Calla, we have had a hard time posting lately. So here is what she has been up to the last few weeks:

1. First tooth came in on the bottom!
2. Started crawling!
3. Taken swim classes with Mom and Dad and learned how to go underwater!
4. Can pull herself up to standing while holding onto something.
5. Went to Olympia to visit her friend Devin at his new house on a lake!
6. Weighed in at 18 pounds! That is 6 times her birth weight in under 11 months!!
Here are some pictures from her adventures and new activities. Calla also found out recently that she is going to have a cousin in September from her Uncle John and Aunt Charlotte! She is very excited to say the least.

She loves to pull herself around now and is just starting to use her knees.

What I am suppose to do now that I am up?

Look close at this one, you can see the little tooth sticking out!

Amazed at something?

Thinking about letters and numbers. These blocks are the first thing she crawls toward every morning and promptly pulls them all out to play with.

What can I spell with this one?

Calla's friend Devin making her laugh!

Look at me mama!
