5 Months Old - The Outtakes

I could not get her to stay in position. She was either tying to play with the puppy, paper, or trying to sit forward. I think I went through this same thing with Lilija. I guess the "traditional shot" is out the window for now. Oh well!

Calah: "Listen here puppy, I told you to sit still! Or maybe that's what Mama was trying to tell me.""Yum. Stuffed puppy ear. My favorite!"
"Whatever. This is so, like, totally lame."
"Really, are we done yet? I think I need a new butt...yeah...definitely a new butt. High-5 puppy!!"

5 Months Old

Ok. So, you can't see the "5" on the sign, but you'll just have to take my word for it! Our little Calah girl has turned into quite the mover in the last month! And yes, the "traditional" pose didn't work this month (see 5 Month Old - The Outtakes).

Here are the highlights:
  • First haircut! (Yes, already. She was rocking a mow-hawk...and she still is...just a tamer version.)
  • Rolled over. She made it look pretty easy and figured it out pretty quick.
  • Can get some BIG AIR in her jumper!
  • Is working on crawling.
  • Is starting to sit up on her own.
That's the scoop!

Love you all,
Carl "Chip", Kysa, Lilija, and Calah

Would you please sit still?

Apparently that was too much to ask. :)

Pumpkins, a hay ride, and roaming goats.

Carl and I took the girls to the Eveland Family Farm in Andover to pick out pumpkins. It was such a fun time! Who knew that there was a huge farm right behind Andover High School?! They had peacocks, alpacas, lamas, chickens, goats, cows, miniature horses, and a bunch of other animals...and some of them were roaming around the farm! We went through a corn maze, pet the animals, got our pumpkins, and then ended the day with a hay ride. Great times had by all! We'll definitely be going back next year.

She's rolling over!

Well you know...sometimes...

You take a picture, and when you look at it, you get a case of the giggles???

Big Slide! Go Wee!

This is one of our favorite parks to go to. There are typically young families and it's very close to our house. Plus, Lilija LOVES this slide! (Oh, Carl and I are saying that the drop at the end probably feels like a ride at Valley Fair.)

Sunday with Nana and Bapa

Nana and Bapa came over to our house for lunch after church a couple weeks ago. The Vikings were a disappointment, but the company was great!
