Congratulations, Kim!

This weekend Charlie and Lily joined the family in celebrating the college graduation of their cousin Kim. This was the babies' first big party, and also their first time meeting many of the aunts, uncles and cousins on Joe's side of the family. The party overlapped with nap time, so they were a little more subdued than they usually are, so you'll see that they DON'T smile all the time (just most of the time!), but both babies enjoyed getting to know their relatives. Charlie and Lily are looking forward to many more family get togethers!

Lily and Kim, getting to know each other. Joe and I often say how much Lily's personality reminds us of Kim's, so we were excited for them to finally hang out together.

Despite the look on his face, Charlie was happy to hang with Kim too!
Lily and Mommy with cousin Melissa. Lily was fascinated by Melissa's beer bottle. I hope that's not a bad sign...
Melissa is funny!
Charlie and Lily with Aunt Rhea and cousin Jodi.
The party was held in Kim's backyard, and there is a gorgeous pool. We didn't think to bring the babies' bathing suits, so they had to settle for dipping in their feet. Lily thought the water was okay.
Charlie, on the other hand, was NOT a fan.
As per usual, Charlie was willing to take a nap while we were out, but Lily would have none if it. She hates to miss any action.
In other news, we're trying to work on finger foods. Charlie is doing great with them - he loves his Puffs and Mum Mums, which is what he's snacking on here. We're planning on introducing more finger foods to him this week. He tried some crumbled, hard-boiled egg yolk yesterday, and I have pancakes, boiled carrots and steamed sweet potato on the list for this week. Lily still gags on any finger food that so much as touches her tongue, so she may be sticking to purees for a little while longer.
We're also working on using sippy cups, although neither baby is really sure what to do with them yet.
Lily is still hard at work on her crawling efforts. She can sure get around, even if she isn't doing it correctly just yet. Lily loves Tucker. Here they are hanging out before bed.
Shop 'til you drop! A recent after-dinner run to the mall wore Lily out.

Another round of great pictures. Especially the family ones - they're always my favorite. We have to teach Lily some stamina with shopping. Congratulations Kim...

All My Love, Auntie : xoxoxoxo

Last 5 or 6 posts catching up and I've concluded that those two are certainly very happy babies! So many smiles! Love it.
