Lori with her two boys, Caleb (4) and Titus (2), and Baby Ruth #3 (due July 20th).
Titus was always playing in this mud puddle. He loves to get dirty!
Megan and Caleb became instant friends.
We couldn't get Sofia off this rocking horse. She loved it!
We were given some free zoo passes and decided to make the trip to Columbia, SC with all the kids. They had a great time. Joshua is still telling his daddy, multiple times a day, that he saw elephants and lions and monkeys at the zoo.
The kids looking at some fish.
Our best attempt to get a group shot of the kids.
Our two two-year-olds. The temper tantrums were frequent!
Our meals together.
Another attempt at a group shot.
Joshua got a summer buzz cut courtesy of Lori.
The before shot.
After. What a cutie!
Thanks Lori, for letting us come visit. We had a wonderful time. Can't wait to see you in the fall!

Today Sofia (and Bekah too!) turns 11 months old. It's so hard to imagine that she has been with us for 11 months already. It feels so fast but also like she has been around forever. It truely is hard to remember what our family was like before she came along. While she has been the most difficult baby of my three, she is little by little out growing most of those difficulties. She definately has a sweet personality which melts my heart and I adore that about her.
Some stats about Sofia:
She has 7 teeth and #8 is just about to break through.
She loves to lay her head on my shoulder while I hold her for a minute before falling asleep.
She still isn't crawling.
She loves to walk, if someone will hold her hands to help her.
She just learned to wave and clap her hands. (See video below)

Check out this video Jaime caught of Joshua. The poor boy was so exhausted by the end of the second day.
I didn't believe this could ever really happen until I saw it with my own eyes. The funniest part is what we didn't catch on camera. A few minutes after this video he briefly woke up and tried to take a bite of his breadstick (unsuccessfully, I might add), then fell right back asleep again. I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes.
