Happy Days

Nina has adjusted to her new schedule well, despite waking up and getting ready to go at 6am. Like her parents, she was excited for the weekend and enjoyed visiting with Grandma Katie. She just keeps growing, trying to talk, and trying to stand. She is enjoying bathtime much more now too!

First Twins Game!

I'm on top of the world!

Nina made her first trip to Target Field and had a wonderful time! We bundled her & packed extra as it was 50 degrees and rainy around noon, but it was 73 degrees and perfect for baseball by gametime.

She slept on the way to the ballpark, let mom and dad eat, sat happily throughout the game and watched pretty intently. She felt right at home since we sat next to two retired science teachers who have grandchildren her age.

Nana's Visit

Grandma Jenni visited during the week and Nina got to experience her first flea market, the Junk Bonanza. She enjoyed all the walking and attention. Another stop was made to Nina's daycare to sign paperwork as Kara returns to work on Wednesday. Coincidentally, Barb, our great daycare provider, lives on Jenni Lane and it was just too appropriate to photograph Grandma Jenni with Nina under the street sign.

Bippity Boppity

Nina has been trying new things everyday. She likes laying outside taking in the beautiful weather. Because she likes walking so much she has even taken to the idea of us walking on the treadmill with her. Here are some shots of her enjoying sitting up in her boppy - Thanks to Erin, Marc, & Emma.

Nina and dad spent most of the day out in the sun, but also some time watching football. Nina looked like a seasoned veteran lounging on the couch. She has been very happy but is sad that it is Kara's last week home.

------------This game is boring------------

Back to School

Nina and Kara have been getting along well without dad around. She is working out more and has started to pause and look around after each sit-up. Nina sang at church and tried to talk and pray along during the Our Father. She enjoyed getting to meet Great Uncle Ed and visiting Great Grandpa Don and Harry.

2 Months!

Nina has enjoyed the labor day weekend by heading to Minnehaha Falls and hanging out with Grandma Katie, Annie, Adam and skyping with Cassie and Matt. A new favorite activity for Nina is watching and listening to her mobile.

Mixed Signals

Nina and Dad were laughing and both trying to make the same face for the camera, but couldn't get on the same page. By the end they were close, but oh well.

The family went for a walk yesterday, and, despite the large amount of sunshine, a strong wind brought in rain and hail. Nina checked out in her well-protected stroller and took a nap while mom and dad got a bit wet while finding cover until the storm passed. Nina is starting to really enjoy her baths and was upset today when we took her out.
