The nice weather has also prompted us to spend quite a bit of time outside (another excuse why the blog has been lacking posts). Bethany loves to play in the pea gravel under her swing set. It will entertain her for a nice long time! :) It would be nice though...since you know...we have to pay for the more gravel, that it wouldn't somehow magically jump out of the sandbox.
Owen, on the other hand, is getting plenty of use out of the jumperoo already! He loves talking to those animals and seeing all the shiny lights and whatnots!
Finally, Bethany started teaching Owen sign language. She loved learning sign language when she was little.
*sigh* Since when is she no longer little?
Anyhow...she knew tons of signs and used them all the time. We can't wait to get Owen started signing with us...but it looks like we are going to have a little help this time around!
Sooo, dear readers, bare with us.
And if you need to...

Both babies love their blankies. Bethany cannot fall asleep without her little blankie. Owen hasn't quite become dependent on his blankie...but he sure does like to have something to munch on and to hold on to with his dear life. But with both of them holding their lil' blankies the other night, it was just too cute not to snap a quick picture.
Bethany finally tried a banana for the first time a couple of days ago. She wouldn't try one for the longest time, always stating, "Don't like it!" Out of the blue, she asks for a banana. After a couple odd glances exchanged between Cory and I we gave her her first banana ever! Don't even know if she likes it. She just sorta parades around the house holding the banana, only occasionally taking a quick nibble at the end. I don't try to fully understand our Bethany...but she surely does try to keep things interesting around here!

Today was another first day of school.
It was again hard to leave the kiddos behind. But to keep the tradition we started last year and the year before, we took our annual "First Day of School" pictures. (Make sure to click back on those links to see blasts from the pasts!) However, this year's pictures are new and improved with our Owen making his first debut!

So you wanna know what we've been up to? After all, it has been 5 days since the world wide web has heard a peep out of us. Being that it is in the middle of August...I'll give you 2 guess what has been keeping us away from our blog (and not to mention my farm on Facebook).

Yes, sitting up, not spitting up, although Owen still likes to do that. Here are a few pictures of him sitting in his Bumbo thing for the first time.
Of course, Bethany wanted to help as well! Poor, patient Owen...

So you want to see how unbelievably adorable Owen is when he smiles?
I know you want to see those dimple-producing smiles.
They are so amazingly, heart-melting cute.
I can only imagine you...sitting there...at the edge of your seat.
Well...I took over 40 pictures of Owen today, his 3 month birthday....
As you can see...
