Ariel is 5 months old!

Dan and Caleb came down with the stomach bug last week and now Caleb has a cold (coughing, sore throat and clear runny nose). I am glad to say that he is getting better but he is still not feeling top notch!

I am so excited to see the sun out and hear the birds chirping. The weather outside is wonderful. I was able to get Caleb out today and let him play in the front yard for a couple hours. While he was playing I swept the porch and did some cleaning outside that hadn't been done since Ariel was born. The windows have been up in the house for two days and it feels so good to finally get some fresh air in this house!

Ariel is 5 months old today. She is getting very interested in what is going on around her. She hates it when Dan, Caleb or I are not in sight or when we are not talking to her, she just lights up when we come around. She is making silly noises now and blowing bubbles with her mouth. I started her on rice cereal a couple weeks ago and she loves it! She loves life and we love having her part of ours!

Here are a few pictures from the past few days...not too many since Caleb has been under the weather.

My poor boy not feeling well on the couch Yesterday I cleaned out my linen closet and he wanted to help me take the "trash" out...this bag was pretty heavy and he pulled it all the way to the garage door...even down the three steps to our dining room!He picked these flowers for me while he was outside today
