18 months

It's hard for us to believe our little Isla is already 1 1/2! Time needs to slow down! We are loving this stage with her, though, and everyday is more fun. She's only been walking for about 6 weeks but is now running and running. She loves out nightly dance parties (her favorites are Black Eyed Peas and Beyonce!), playing golf with her daddy, doing her flashcards and reading book after book. She knows that there is a baby in Mama's belly, but we don't think she has any idea how her life is about to change.

Geri, Brody and Tiff come to Colorado!

We had so much fun a couple weekends ago when my dear friends Geri and Tiff flew to Denver from Minneapolis and Chicago. Geri brought her 2 1/2 year old Brody who Isla just loved. We had so much fun catching up, lounging, over eating, playing at the pool and spending quality friend time together. It had been way to long since we were all together, and I hope not as much time pases til we're all together again!

Morning at the zoo

We made an impromptu trip to the zoo this morning, as Zums had a free morning. We arrived just after 9am to beat the weekend crowd. Isla had a great time watching the monkey, giraffes and flamingos. We've been putting our annual passes to great use, as it was our second trip of the week. We went with the Pfalmer clan on Tuesday and had a great day. We're anxious for the Asia Tropics exhibit to be completed!

Baby Boy on the way!

Time surely does fly with the second pregnancy. We're just about at 21 weeks now and can't believe that in just over 4 months, we'll be a family of 4! The official due date is December 19, but we'll be having a scheduled c-section which will likely be on December 13 or 14. I've been feeling great lately and trying to get as many home projects done while I still have the energy and am feeling up to it. We've got some big upcoming trips to Scotland in September and Connecticut in October, so here's hoping that the health and wellness continues. We feel incredibly blessed that we're going to have a son, though right now we kind of can't imagine loving any child more than Isla! We've got plenty of love to give though!
