Kaitlyn is now six months old! She's such a sweetheart and Ben and I (and everyone else we know) just love her to bits. She has been rolling around for the past couple of months and I think we can now say she is officially crawling. She had her scooting down but I'm pretty sure I saw a legitimate crawl last night. So now we have the fun task of baby-proofing!
Since so much has happened in the last five months I will just post some highlights.
In April, Ben's younger sister, Megan, graduated from BYU-Hawaii so we decided we had to go and see her. We actually started planning this trip before I became pregnant and almost weren't going to go when we found out. After we figured out she would only be a couple of months old and still in her mostly sleeping all day phase we decided we'd be ok. We went with Ben's parents and aunt and uncle and we met up with his older sister, Tiffany, and her husband, Craig.
We spent a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center and it was a lot of fun. Megan's friends work there and we got some special treatment at one of the villiages and on our canoe ride. It was a neat experience and a beautiful place. Definitely one of the best parts of the trip.
Kaitlyn's first dip in the ocean. A wave came and scared her so she wasn't very impressed with the whole experience.
Hawaii was great. It was sometimes a challenge being there with a two month old but overall Kaitlyn did awesome and we had a good time.
This was Kaitlyn's first time camping. Although, I don't think we can count it since we just drove up both days. We didn't think sleeping in a tent with a three month old would go very well.
Random shot at Avo Maria's house.
In July my sister, Marcia, and her two boys, Ayden and Brady, and my grandpa came to visit my parents. They decided to come see me in Boise for the day and we went to the Zoo.
We had breakfast with the lions. Very cool.
Kaitlyn rode a tiger just like her daddy did on our first date. His tiger was a little bit bigger though.
Before church. She takes the Sabbath very seriously. Ben on the other hand is trying to give her bunny ears in the back...
In May, Ben blessed Kaitlyn. I'm so happy to have a worthy Priesthood holder in our home and it was a great day full of family and friends.
Our friends, Natalie and Tyler, have an awesome camera and were kind enough to do a little photo shoot for us.
