They change so fast! We worked and worked to help Nadia become a walker and it is amazing how subtle yet monumental it is for us to watch her learn little by little. All of us would have preferred her learn a little faster... but she now has it and no one can stop her now!

These moments are so few and I have to take them when I can my angel feel asleep while we were swinging at a memorial day picnic!

Zoo times at the Toledo Zoo. The Zoo train was a big part of growing up for me we went to the Zoo sometimes weekly and the train was a must.
Gavin was really lucky to get to go and hang out at the firestation in Oregon one of my bridesmaids Sarah Beavers (congrats on your new baby Sarah)! She is married to a volunteer fireman. He showed Gavin all the fire engines and he had such a great time!

Happy Mother's Day! For Mother's day we took a 10 hour drive to introduce Nadia to Mike's Mema for the first time. She loved Nadia and cried when we left. The most amazing thing happened while we were there. Nadia took her first steps! I should be screaming this from the mountain tops but it has been rather anti-climatic because of how busy we have been. Nadia is so cute as she is taking steps you have to count for her and they are the tiniest. Special things we did while we were there are we went to eat at the Golden Corral (which is Mema's favorite place to eat). We also checked out the train coming into the station.

Hanging out with our neighbors Kevin and Lucy is great fun! Nadia is so cute in her "baby doll" carriage.
