Memorial Day Fun!

Nana and Papa (Grandma and Grandpa Beahm) made our Memorial Day weekend extra special by visting Cora and I while Nat was out of town on his three week adventure getting ready for his new job in Europe. 

While Nana and Papa were here we hiked, went to Cora's baby movement class (which is always so hilarious since none of the babies do much but flop around and giggle), played on the front patio in the sun, went out to eat and enjoyed each others company very much.  We LOVE seeing you two so much!   Even their little wiener doggie puppy, Hamish, joined us for a fun weekend. Cora loved watching Hamish race all around the house chasing Tanner and going after all of Cora's toys. Cora thought it was quite hilarious watching Zoe try to attack Hamish while Hamish ran around bothering Tanner, and Nana, Pops and I were running around trying to make sure Hamish didn't eat any Cora toys. An exhausting circus!

It was a wonderful weekend and we were very sad to see them head home, but luckily the Grand Po-Bah and Buddy (Grandma and Grandpa Campbell) came into town to continue to help us out.  Three weeks on our own is a long time, and we couldn't do it on our own!!  We sure do miss Daddy though and are ready for him to come home soon. 

Here are a few photos from the last week or so :)

Cora loves sitting in boxes!

Many Firsts!

This past week Cora experienced a lot of firsts- first grass, first really warm weather, first rock climb, first time at a park, in a swing, on a slide, and first time at the river! 

And here are a couple other cute photos from the past week :)

6 Months!

I can't believe Cora is already six-months-old! It's been half a year full of joy, exhaustion, confusion, pure bliss, amazement and hilarious entertainment. Although some days and nights have seemed extraordinarily long (especially when all I want in the world is for her to fall asleep and I agonizingly watch the minutes slowly creep by and hopes that her little eyes shut and she drifts off to dream land), the time since she was born has oddly gone incredibly fast. She is almost 13 pounds- only a few months ago this weight was unimaginable. I'm so happy she is strong and growing fast, and is getting cuter every single day!!
