We took Autumn to the pool for the first time on Saturday. She did FANTASTIC!! We had a blow up turtle for her to sit in. She stayed in there for almost an hour without a single sound! She didnt fuss until Charles took her out of the turtle to get out of the pool!

Major the guard dog??

This picture is funny to me. If you notice, Major has his paws over his "slinky dog" (as we call it). While Autumn was playing on the floor he didnt pay any attention to her. As soon as he heard her playing with HIS toy, he came running. A few minutes later I noticed that he was "guarding" his toy! Silly dog!

Happy Birthday Charles!

Not a whole lot has been going on around our house.  The most exciting thing to happen recently was Charles' birthday on July 17. He's the big 24!! I baked him a cake, made his favorite dinner, deviled eggs and bran muffins. I was in the kitchen almost all day (but he's worth it!). When he came home from work he had his cake and candles waiting for him then opened his presents. He got ALL tools. That's all he's been asking for since Christmas!

Here are some pictures of his day! :)

She was mad at me because I moved the presents away from her and she couldn't play with them anymore!

5 Months Old!

Autumn turned 5 months old a few days ago! I still cant believe its been that long since she was born! She changes and does something new everyday and I love it! She's not rolling over a whole lot yet or sitting up alone yet but we're getting there. She has however, learned to spit and does it when she's mad. Hopefully we can nip that in the butt! She's sleeping 10-12 hours a night and is taking 3-4 naps a day. She is still only eating rice cereal but will probably start on vegetables in a few weeks. She hasn't quite figured out how to move the rice cereal from the front of her tongue to the back but she's getting better at it! She has also recently found her feet. She doesn't play with them all the time but when she finds them, she sure does love them!

On July 4th, a good friend of mine came and took pictures of Autumn. They turned out great! Here are a few of my favorites! :)

New Pool and New Bathing Suit

After searching the internet and every store in this town, I finally found Autumn a bathing suit at the PX. The smallest size they had was 12 months and after holding them up to 0-3 month and 3-6 month outfits I realized that childrens bathing suits run small. I ended up getting her an 18 month one. Its a tad big but it'll definitely last her all summer! While out shopping for a bathing suit, I also bought her a little blow up pool. We put her in it last night while Charles grilled out. She really seemed to like it, even though the water was a little cold.
