Playing with Alton

Chloe had so much fun playing with her buddy Alton. Too bad he lives all the way in LA! The cutest part for me was when she started calling him "All-ta!" I love the words she creates to say things!

Here they are with the water table:
She had so much fun, I might have to buy her a table!
there's that "say cheese" smile again!

Chloe also discovered pickles on this vacation:

Chloe had a hard time sleeping while we were on our trip--new places, new crib. Once she finally got used to sleeping in the hotel, we moved her to Jen and Travis' house. By the last day, she was sleeping like a champ, and even decided to make her crib a bit more comfy??
She pulled their wall calendar down and was sleeping on it! I thought this was so cute!!

Fun at the beach!!

When we were visiting our friends in Los Angeles, Chloe had her first trip to the ocean. I thought she would hate the cold water and the waves and the sand, but she LOVED it! She played in the sand and didn't eat any of it! I held her hands when we stood in the waves, and Chloe would smile and say "oohhh" every time a wave hit our legs. She would even sit in the waves and splash a bit. I was so proud of her and it was so fun to watch her enjoying herself so much!
My friend Jen made this cool page with her digi-scrapping skills.
I am so tempted to learn how to do this!
Here are some other pictures from the day:

Happy Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful mother's day this year. Andrew and Chloe made me a yummy breakfast, and Chloe wrote me a fantastic poem (with her dad's help)! It was so cute, incorporating all the words she knows!

Say Cheese!

Chloe loves to pose for the camera. When I say "cheese" this is the look I get.....
this is Chloe's favorite place to sit in our house
