Worker Guys

Ben bulit some planter boxes for our garden last weekend. Eli was so excited to help as usual, he even lined up all of the bolts and washers.

It's getting warmer

Eli loves to "commune with nature".
He was in the buff, but the neighbor kids came over, so I had him put on underwear.
The pool started out with clean water, but of course, it ended up like this.
Last year we bought an attachment for the kitchen sink so we can hook the hose up to it and pipe warm water into the pool. We love it because even if it's 90 degrees outside, the hose water feels like it just melted off a glacier. By the time the water warms up enough to submerse yourself, it's usually dirty. I think the hose attachment is the best $3 purchase I've made.

Scooting and Sitting

Lilly gets where she wants to go pretty quick now. She's constantly exploring the house, especially near the front door, I think she's trying to escape! She's also pulling herself up on some small furniture, like Eli's chair. She can get up the one step in the playroom, which I'm a little sad about, she's not as easy to contain anymore. She's also sitting really well (finally), although she doesn't like to sit for long because she's got places to go!

I just found this picture of Eli at the same age Lilly is now, 9 mos. I hear all of the time that Eli and Lilly look exactly alike, and of course I see some similarities. As you can see in these two pictures, they're absolutely brother and sister, but their own little people.

Getting Bigger

Today I was looking at Lilly and wondering where my little baby went. She's no longer a newborn, she scoots all over the house, calls for me when she's hungry and takes toys from Eli. Where does the time go?
