On another note, to update on the daycare situation. She has transitioned well and it getting used to the kids and the new schedule. It's tough since she only goes 2 days a week and the other kids are full time, it's going to take her a while to adjust since we are starting when she's 18 months whilst the other kids have been going there since they were infants. It really is a perfect in-home daycare so I hope it will work out for the long run.
Petting the animals with Daddy, even though it's posted all over not to pet the animals.

I bet we have a few hundred pictures just like this.
Makena, Westyn & Campbell having an afternoon snack at the canal
That little bikini body kills me.
Don't get me wrong though, she is a very happy baby. She is always smiling, laughing, making silly faces and she loves to give hugs and kisses, even to strangers. She is such a cuddly little girl and I can't seem to get enough of that little crook in her neck and thank god she freely lets me nuzzle it everyday.
These last couple of weeks have been spent with some our favorite people the Verghese clan, celebrating Jen's 30th for 2 days; going to El T's one night and then having a BBQ on her actual Birthday at our house. I was even lucky enough to score some Jen and Ashley time over breakfast in Kirkland. We're keeping our fingers crossed that they'll be back in a few short months in October.
The face of an angel
Westyn must be picking something out of Calum's hair.
Last week Westyn & I spent a few days at the Canal with my Mom and Grandma while Troy was fishing in Alaska. I can't say enough about my Mom for the Grandma that she is. I'm sure I've said this before by my parents always say that they are better Grandparents then they were as parents. I can't imagine that to be true but as Grandparents there is no limit for them. They will do absolutely anything for that little girl and as parents to me they are always so willing to help Troy and I. They are pretty incredible people and we are very lucky to have them so close to us.
Lastly, (it makes me tear up just thinking about it) Brandon and fam leave tonight for Ithica, New York for his 2-year stint getting his MBA. UGH. I can't imagine what life will be like these next 2 years without those four but I'm very excited for their new journey. As my good friends know I am very close to my brother and in turn our kids are very close especially Westyn and Campbell (10 months apart) so it's going to be strange not seeing him on a weekly basis.

cleaning clams with Aunt Christy
Getting tickeled by Tata
For as long as I can remember excluding sometime in the 80's when I was a lot younger we have spent the 4th of July at our cabin on the Hood Canal. I decided to take a few much needed days off last week and Westyn and I headed to the canal a day before Troy to spend some time with my parents until the maddness began. We had several Baggo tournaments, several margaritas and I think we went through about 15 bottles of wine - this was spread out around many days and people though. Every night, especially the 4th, we were treated to a fireworks display unlike any you have ever seen. Up and down and across the canal we could see incredible fireworks, huge parties, bonfires where people were sure to be roasting Reeses Smores as this is the new thing - who said we were in a recession?? I can't believe how much people must have spent. One can't really explan the awesomeness of the canal on the 4th unless you have been there.

We even came home with a bit of a tan, Westyn included, even though she was covered in SPF 50, I think she was blessed with Troy's ability to get a great tan.
This is what we get to look at every evening

I gave Kenai some kisses as I do everyday...
I snuck in some Starbucks...
Played at Grasslawn park with my cousin Campbell...
Gave some kisses to a very large frog......
Got myself a girly blackeye.....
But man I still look good... even with pieces of scrambled egg on my face..
I watched Daddy fertilize our grass....
And celebrated my cousin Campbell's 2nd Birthday.... Isn't she pretty....
She looks just like her Daddy, my Mommy's brother, Uncle Brandon.....I'm really going to miss them when they all move to New York.
I even had my turn at the pinata. I told Daddy I could take care of it myself but he insisted on helping. Whatever!
Oops - I got caught stealing the top to my Mommy's water bottle... I mean Daddy gave it to me.
And last but not least I decided to have a chat with Mommy last night. It went a little like this... "Momma, these last 13 1/2 months have been wonderful and I thank you so much for letting me get some good good milk from your boobies but I think I'm ready to call it quits. I'm ready to be a big girl now if you wouldn't mind." And that was that. No more breastfeeding.
