Swim fun!

The kids are enjoying swimming this summer, as usual. I don't have many pictures of them swimming simply because when all three of them are in the water, they require full attention!
Hudson took swimming lessons again this year, and has continued to improve. In fact, he swims fully without swimmies! Yeah, Hudson! He jumps off the board and swims to the side all by himself! We are so proud of him, and he is very proud of himself, too... As proven when he climbs on the board and announces, "Watch me, everybody!"
Cade took swim lessons for the first time this year. I think he REgressed every day! ha! He TOTALLY did not like being in the water with someone else. He trusts mommy & daddy, but isn't sure about anyone else. So, I'm not sure how much that week helped him, but he does still love going to the swimming pool :) Slowly but surely, he gains a little more confidence every time.
Callie is completely laid back in the water :) In fact, I don't think she knows she's IN the water most of the time! She just hangs out in her floatie and happily watches everything that goes on around her.
Below are pictures of Callie in her baby pool we got her for the backyard. She likes it, but is too much of a busy-body to stay content for too long without trying to get out. She face-planted in the grass a couple of times because she just HAD to stand up on the side! Silly girl!

Happy Father's Day 2010

Didn't get a lot of pictures ON Father's Day, but here are a few of mainly Howie & Callie (the newest to the bunch this Father's Day)!
The weekend after Father's Day, Howie cleared out the wagon so Callie could have a ride :) We've had this wagon since Hudson's first birthday, and all the little ones have enjoyed taking a spin in it.
The kids ALWAYS enjoy playing outside with Daddy! He is THE most fun!

Happy Father's Day to all the special DADS in our lives - PawPaw, G-Daddy, Papa Ross, and our Daddy!

Baseball ends for Cade

Here's our little man finishing up his first season of baseball :) He's had a great time playing this season, and has improved his skills, too. When Daddy pitches to him, he hits pretty consistently. He's learning to get his glove down quick for "grounders", and catches pretty well in the backyard, too!
Way to go, Cade!
We're looking forward to next season when our two boys can play on the same team together! :)

Taking care

Hudson, unfortunately, has acquired strep this week while attending Bible school. :( Never fear, though, little brother is here! This is the conversation while waiting to pick up the prescription...

H: Mom, we need to hurry home because I'm getting sicker!
C: It's OK, Hudson. We'll take care of you... 'cause we're brothers... and that's what brothers do.

So loving, and stated so matter-of-factly! Our little Cade-o can be such a sweet boy. He certainly loves, loves his big brother!

Callie is 9 months old!

Callie Jewel is nine-months-old, and this girl is into EVERYTHING!!
It's hard to believe how time is flying, and how quickly she is growing. A birthday in three months? WOW!
She is still a snorter (one of my favorite things she does :)...she waves & claps. She increases her crawling speed daily, and pulls up/stands up wherever she finds a good spot - the table, the dishwasher, the chair, the wall! She has three teeth (all on the bottom). At her check-up, she weighed in at 18 lb, 3 oz, and 27 inches long.
Here's our happy girl!
