Busy girl

The past couple of weeks have been busy. Caroline went to Power of Play with the twins playgroup one day, we went to Smithfield for Aunt Leslie's baby shower followed by her first trip to the Family Pool, she went to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher with a new baby sitter, and we went to her friend Emma's first birthday party. One note to add about Caroline's trip to the pool: she is not scared of water and managed to walk right into the kiddie pool face first by herself.....thank you to Aunt Gina for swooping her up so quickly, she didn't even cry!

Travis and I celebrated our anniversary Monday, hard to believe it's already been 7 years. We were able to go out to eat ALONE, thanks to Marci!

Tonight I saw that Caroline's fourth tooth FINALLY broke through the gum. Her first three teeth all came in one month, and now it's been over a month since the last tooth.

Shopping in the grocery store at Power of Play

Here Caroline realized for the first time that she has a baby cousin, Margo. Madeline, Lydia and Caroline all swarmed in while Grandma was holding her at Leslie's baby shower.

Playing in the pool with Madeline and Lydia, she loves the water!

This picture was taken right before getting in the bathtub. Caroline decided to sit back in her chair with a bag of chips to munch grown up!

Weekend Fun

Uncle Greg and Aunt Leslie came to visit last weekend. We spent the day at the beach where Caroline loved playing in the water and the sand. She also got some good sleep on the boat ride to and from the island. Our next few weekends are going to be busy in and out of town but we hope to be able to enjoy the boat and beach a few more times before summer ends.....Caroline is definitely a Beach Girl!!

I've decided to try something new.........rather than sending pictures through Snapfish, I'll try updating a family blog every now and then in an attempt to keep up with how much Caroline is changing and growing everyday! (And if there's anything worth mentioning about me or Travis, I'll post that as well :-) )

As of today, Caroline is walking, running, talking (she can say a few words, some much more clearly than others), climbing, jumping, etc .............. she is full of energy all the time and very curious.

She couldn't resist Trixie's cat carrier which was out after her trip to the vet the other day. Luckily Trixie didn't pee in there like she usually does!! After snapping this picture, Travis had to unscrew the top to get Caroline out....she was stuck and not very happy about it!
