I've been wanting to update for a while, but just haven't gotten to it. Hope is taking a long nap today, so here are some recent pictures of our activity. As usual, thanks for reading :) It is back in the 50's this week (boo), but should warm up next week.

Hope's first kind of big owie - she fell and hit the side of the bookcase. Sad.

Hope at the park playing like a big girl. She even goes down the slide all by herself. We have a lot of nice parks around here.

Crazy morning hair!

Don't mind the mismatched outfit, but do look at what a good Daddy Hope has. She loves it when we sit in her little tent with her.

Family photo at a Brewers vs. Giants game. Thankfully we had an empty seat next to us for Hopey.

One of Hope's best new buds, Asher.

We were so greatful to be able to Pappy, Grandma and Auntie Rah-Rah's house last week. Mark had papers to finish up so we took off and had a lot of fun. Hope liked it when Pappy taught her how to play the "tubee."

Hope next to Paul's tree in my parent's yard.

Hope and cousin Andrew - he's so sweet!!

Whoa! Hope and Carson will hopefully be friends over the years, even though they don't see each other too often. They are 4 months apart and you can certainly tell the difference between the boy and girl in each of them. More to come!

where was mark when his baby girl was making out with CArson!? I feel like that's something Mark wouldn't let Hopey get away with :)

Mark said...

Good question, Melissa. I was back here in Chicago. I guess I won't be able to let her be by herself again until she is 20 (or 30:)
