Rockwell & His Purple Ball

Rockwell loves to pick up his purple ball ever since we ran it over and dented in the side....

We always warn guests that this is not a "kick" ball but a very hard sided ball, because several people have ran up to it, expecting it to be a soft sided ball, and it is not! 

The marks on the side are teeth marks, from when the ball was completely round. Rockwell would try to pick it up using the "belly button" of the ball in the middle (shown below). He would hook one tooth in the ball's belly button and then try to wrap his jaw around the ball to pick it up. Sometimes he was successful, but it took many tries.

First Pool

Rachel's final first over Memorial Day weekend was the time she spent in her pool. The pool went over well, she was very busy with the floating octopus that I put into the water and Rockwell decided to use the pool as his water dish several times. Our lives wouldn't be complete without Rockwell investigating all of the new things we do with Rachel. I could not get a photo of Rachel looking up at the camera because she was so fascinated with the floating toys!

First Cereal

She's not really a fan of the cereal. She seems to squeeze her lips shit very tightly and rub her face, putting cereal all over her hands, hair and eyes!

Ready for her first "meal" from a spoon! We tried this Memorial Day weekend.


Not sure what is going on....




Poor girl...it was torture! 


I kept trying with the cereal and she began to get a little better. I took some to "school" and of course she gobbled it up for her teachers! I can't wait to give it to her this weekend when we are home!
