Swimming with Papa Pictures...

Andrew's famous pouty face- not sure if he likes this swimming thing...

Andrew & Papa

Swimming and liking it...

...liking it more...

...liking it a lot more...
...LOVING it!

Swimming with Papa...

Andrew went swimming one afternoon while we were home. It took him a couple of minutes to get used to the water temperature but after that he loved it. We had him swimming naked b/c he does not have a bathing suit and well, he liked it better that way! :) Picture coming soon...


Here is Andrew taking a bath at Granny's house without a baby tub. He loved it!

Papa's Surprise Party...

Tom (my step-dad) is turning 50 next week. We had a surprise 50th Birthday Party this past weekend. He was very surprised by everything- we flew in to surprise him, his sister flew in to surprise him and we had Chicago Cubs & Bears things all over the house. We had made a ton of Chicago foods- Pizza, Hot Dogs & Italian Beef. Everyone that came to the party had their Chicago gear on, even the babies.

Liza and the birthday boy, Tom!

Andrew in his Cubbies onesie...

Connie & Stephanie- both BIG Chicago fans (they both married into it, they had no choice :)

The Harrison Family- Tom Jr., Stephanie & Caroline

Look at this amazing cake and cupcakes- the perfect fit!

A family full of Cubs & Bears fans (well most of them)

Flying to Florida...

We took a surprise trip to Florida to celebrate Papa's 50th Birthday. Look at our big boy. Andrew did a great job on the plane, he did not make a peep. We ended up with a row to ourselves because the plane was not full. Matt put the seat-belt on him, he looks so cute!

Naked Babies...

Pictures from when my sister, niece and Dad were in town. Naked baby time...

Look how much longer (and bigger) Andrew is than Grace.

A Visit to the Zoo

My Dad, Sister and Niece came to town on Monday night. Since the weather was SO beautiful yesterday we took the babies to the St. Louis Zoo. Both Grace (6 1/2 months) and Andrew (3 1/2 months) were SO good. We all had a fun time together.
