-started to giggle.
-likes solid foods, even though she hasn't had it too much. 
-loves her brother when he's looking or talking to her.
-hates her brother when he body slams, gets all up in her face & attacks her.
-adores her dad. always has the biggest smile for him when he gets home from work each day.
-can squeal SO EXTREMELY loud and high. its always awesome when she does so @ church.
-is still really chubby. totally adorable.
-started sitting up @ 4 months & is a pro at it now.
-rolls from her belly to back.
-likes to eat her toes.
-has moments of stubborness & drama. she is a girl.

busy busy busy

 i'm throwing it all out there to get caught up with all we've been up to thus far this summer. We've been busy & having fun. Chase is extremely busy this summer along with usual work, he and a co-worker are starting up another business & so they are busy working on that before work starts up again in the fall....while we miss him like crazy all the time, we have been trying to enjoy every moment of our quickly fading summer. (How many times did i say busy in that introduction...only slightly annoying)

I had a birthday shout HOORAY: and it was a great one. we just played at home for the majority of the day...then my sweet friend, Jana watched Preston that night so we could go out.

 Ragnar 2012: Oh how i love this race. our team did awesome. I ran a brutal 21 miles. Loved every second of it. It was so fun being able to run with 3 of my 4 sisters. 

enjoying the heat: sometimes its really fun when Claire goes down for a nap because i get to spend one-on-one time with Pres. He is so fun! and cute!

Zoo: we went to the zoo a few weeks back with some friends. Preston talked about it for days.  He loved the swinging monkeys, and the sleeping lions. were hitting it up next week again if you want to join us!!

4th of July: we had a pretty chill 4th of July due to a ugly case of hand foot & mouth that plagued us earlier in the week (see below). But enjoyed the fireworks in blackfoot that night. 

Sibling LOVE: well preston loves it at least. He can't get enough of claire, but by the look on her face most of the time she is saying..."mom, please save me!!" they are pretty darn cute together

 HFMD: Preston got hit HARD with hand foot & mouth disease. I've never seen the kid so sick. blisters covering his legs arms and feet, and sores all over his mouth. Poor kid wanted to eat so badly but it just hurt too bad. saddest thing ever!!

i do believe thats a wrap. all i have left to post about is the fact that my baby girl is 5 MONTHS OLD.  but i'm going to pretend she's not and hold off on that post for a little bit.
