Day with mom

Isabel and I spent a day together today while dad was at work - I am back on call tomorrow and will miss her being away every 4th night. :(

We started out with a hike with Jess and brunch, then lots of time on the couch reading and watching project runway....

...after we each took a nap we made some chocolate chip cookies - Izzie likes those too...

...then bath time....

...then some play time in her new jammies before going to sleep.

Ahhh, finally some vacation time! It has been over six months since we have had an official vacation. We spent a few days with my family - first two nights in Cedar City for the Shakespeare Festival and some golf, then we stayed at the Bryce Canyon Lodge and enjoyed Bryce for a couple days. Isabel had another first - her first non-family babysitter (when we went to the plays) - she did great, but got her second cold of her life the day after. Overall the trip was great, it will be hard to get back to work next week.

Watching tv (baby einstein) before we left on the road trip.

Another new outfit from grandma.

With the whole family in Bryce.

Isabel was beat after so much hiking! :)

Franz trekking away with Izzie on his back.

At the Mossy Cave hike.

Isabel was such a trooper, we loved traveling with her!

Sleeping and reading


...then standing up in her crib a few minutes later. Always so happy when she wakes up!

Our little bookworm. :)

flying by...

Is seems summer is flying by, and Isabel is growing up faster than ever! Over the past 2 weeks she has changed so much! She started crawling, clapping, babbling lots, playing catch (kind of), and standing up on her own. She is very happy and still a great baby. She still wears her helmet and will probably wear it for 6 more weeks. I am kind of used to it and almost think she looks cuter with it on! :)

Standing up on the porch, looking like a jailbird. :)

This is Isabel at the cabin playing catch....she has these little convulsions as she waits for the ball, too funny.
