Alyssa Started Walking

Alyssa turned 9 months old on April 16th. She's regularly been taking short walks for over a week now. It started while we were in Tampa at the beginning of the month. Soon there won't be any stopping her.
And I'm such a proud dad!

Hannah's Photography

In reading a friend's blog today about how her son always seems to find her well hidden camera to take a few frames on the sly, I remembered that I was going to post the album I started of all the pictures Hannah has taken. We don't typically find Hannah taking out the camera by herself, but she does ask to take her own from time to time when we do have the camera out. And as often as we take pictures, I'm actually surprised that she doesn't ask more! As you'll see, her first few pictures are truly amateur, but she is getting better each time she holds that camera in her pretty little hands.

2008-04 Hannah's First Haircut

In true Hannah fashion, she sat very quietly and patiently as Enjolie combed, cut and curled her hair. Then, she made herself comfortable on a chair with her new do and a hair style book, throwing a temper tantrum when told it was time to go!

2008 April Trip to Tampa

We sure had a good time in Tampa. The weather was perfect and the company even better. We stayed home the first day and enjoyed listening to the thunderstorm. Monday was spent playing Dominos and Candyland and a quick afternoon trip to the University Mall. Tuesday we went strawberry picking at a nearby field (we ate strawberries for the rest of the week!) and later to Zephyr Park. Wednesday was spent at the Lowry Park Zoo and then we were treated to dinner at Carrabba's by Uncle Russell (Very yummy! Thank you!). On Thursday we drove to Eustis so that the girls could visit with their great-grandmother who whipped up an amazing potato salad that all the girls ate! It was on to Clearwater Beach Friday and Alyssa's first frolic in the sand. Wrapping things up on Saturday was a morning at the mall where the cousins had their pictures taken at Picture People.

Check out our many pictures and come back later to read the captions!
