6 Months Old!


Asa hit the 6 month mark today! We'll go in for shots and a check up next week. But he's sitting up like a champ, saying "Da Da" (although I don't think he knows what he's saying- Mike disagrees and argues that he is referring to him), and still as jolly as ever.

Nana's Birthday

While Oma and Opa were in town we celebrated Mom C's birthday at our house! We all went in to get her an ice cream maker (and we've already been reaping the benefits of that present!).

This was actually before the party even started...

Bray and Kajsa are gone...

Kajsa went to see Bray in the premier of "Seance on a Wet Afternoon" down in Santa Barbara so Naphtali and I have their kiddos. Madeline's staying at our house.
Madeline and I were working with scissors and glue and this is what resulted. Unfortuantely Naphtali "Nambi," kind of became the Wicked Witch of the West.(It looks black in the photo but it is actually green.)

Fun at the Fair

We've been hitting the fair all weekend! First with Nana, Poppy, and the Great Grandparents, then with friends, then with Ama, Ampa, and all the cousins. We've had loads of fun!

Goofing Off...

This kid is getting used to having Poppy (Dad C) take his picture. He starts smiling like a goon when he hears the click!

Amara and the Paci

Being older than Asa (and a girl), Amara is more talented with her mobile skills and stealth skills. One of her favorite things to do is steal Asa's paci. Naphtali and I were practicing violin and the kids were playing on the floor, in one measure Amara rolled across the floor grabbed his paci and rolled away under the coffee table. (Naphtali will have to watch out when she makes chocolate chip cookie dough.)

Yay! Great Grandma and Grandpa are in town!

Asa has been enjoying haning out with his Great Grandparents. Grandma VanLaar brought him The Very Hungry Caterpillar and it has become a new favorite. Thanks!

Block Party

Seth and Naphtali watched Asa for us while we went out on the boat. They took him down to the block party and he and Amara got their first balloons! Thanks for being such fun Uncle and Aunt!!

Go Blue!

Mike and Asa cheered on U of M this past Saturday while I was doing some Mimosa stuff. Asa, however, got upset every time MI made a touchdown. The loud clapping and cheering was a little much for him.

Hanging out with Ampa

We were over at Mom and Dad C's house for Karyn Harmon's (Maggie's roomate) birthday. My folks joined us for dessert and Dad C got some great shots of Asa going crazy with my dad.

He thought it was pretty funny to pull his mustache!
