Take Your Testerone Elsewhere

Growing Up

In just a few short months it amazes me how much my little girls are growing up. Jordyn has gotten her first 2 teeth (bottom center) and has crawled for the first time. Of course, she still prefers her old method of "roll-n-scoot" to get where she wants to go. She is also able to stand up holding onto something or someone.
India gets taller by the day. She is a great big sister/little mommy. It is not uncommon to hear her say, "Mommy, J's crying, bottle please." I think that she is actually more anxious for Jordyn to be mobile than anyone else. Gentle is not a word I would use to describe her yanking Jordyn's arm saying "J walk, J walk." Hopefully they will remain great friends when Jordyn is walking and playing with India's toys.
Although it's cool and rainy in Colorado, I am relishing every second I get to spend at home with the family before returning to work. Two more weeks of play and fun!!

"No Place Like Home"

It's been a pleasure like always seeing family and friends on the East Coast during the last 2 weeks. Our few hours at the ocean in VA Beach helped us forget about the beautiful mountains in CO. The girls loved the ocean as they both learned to close their mouths when the waves hit them in the face. (Oh the joy of drinking ocean water) Another joy of our trip was the girls were able to share time with family that loves them that live in other places than 8239. We're grateful that India can put a face with the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins that she prays for every night. With all the love and joy she received we didn't see her as happy as she was when she walked into her house on Saturday. Even Jordyn knew that she was home. It was cute, exciting and a site to see. We thank each of you for your love and kindness shared with us to make our trip enjoyable.
We Love You!
Linwood, Sara, India, and Jordyn

First Trip to the Dentist

Today India got introduced to the dentist. Boy have things changed since we were more funny smell, TV above the chair, cool sunglasses, of course they still have the same prizes. She did really well, only bit the dentist twice.

A Week of Firsts

This week India and her Daddy had their first movie date. They went to see Madagascar and India enjoyed her own bag of popcorn. Daddy had popcorn too but couldn't eat it because she kept him on his toes by running to the exit yelling "Potty!" on a few occasions. They made it through the whole thing and it was a good time!

We hope that everyone had a great Fourth of July! The girls loved the cities firework display. They weren't even phased by the noise.

We'd like to put in an order for the summer to slow down. It is going toooooo fast!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in a week and a half.
We Love You!
Linwood, Sara, India, and Jordyn
