Water Babies

Two of the reasons we love our new community at Blackhawk are the two really nice swimming pools. This weekend we went for the first time as a family to the pool. Gigi was in her cute pink ruffled swimsuit, Claire in her swim diaper, and Deacon looked stylish in his surfer orange board shorts. Gigi has started to learn the basics of swimming- holding her breath and going under water and floating. Claire was still a little nervous about being in that much water, and Deacon loved being in his floatie taking it all in. Family time should always be this fun...

Rollin' on the river

Little Boy is growing up so fast! He's been able to roll from his front to his back for a couple of months now, and has been trying to roll from his back to his front for the past few weeks. Yesterday he decided he was going to finally figure it out, and after a couple of practice runs, he was rolling all over the house! Hooray for new skills!

Rolling over...

... and again

Another food lover

Recently Deacon has started joining us for family dinners. He'll sit in his Bumbo seat at the end of the table and watch us all eat delicious food. Since he seemed so interested, we thought he might be ready for rice cereal.
He liked the idea- just not the meal he was served.

so far he's not excited

maybe it will taste better if I try it myself...

nope- still yucky!

Bathing Beauties

It's amazing to see how different all three of our children are. People always say they can tell Gigi, Claire and Deacon are siblings, but we are so close to them it's sometimes hard to see it. Here are our babies all at about 4 or 5 months old wrapped up in the same hoody towel. So cute...
