We went to Grammy and Papa's for the weekend before Christmas and I forgot my camera! We spent Christmas morning at Grandma and Grandpa's in SLC.
Our attempt at a Family Christmas Photo. Fail. When we look bad, the kids look good. When we looked ok, the kids look bad. Grrrr... Thus, the lack of Christmas cards this year.
I took this picture of Lily the day after Christmas when we went shopping. To keep herself occupied while I bargain-hunted, she unstacked all of the chairs and stools and then sat down to read a good book.
Good times in the Schmitt Family.
Last week Henry had his first solid food! Avocado and breastmilk goodness. He was really excited and almost ate the spoon. But then he got tired of sitting in the Bumbo and was ready to be done. He was about 5 1/2 months old and we've since then fed him homemade baked yams and avocados. It's not a daily thing yet and I'm convinced this time around I will do homemade babyfood and I'm not in a huge hurry because he's really healthy exclusively nursing right now.
Lily doing dishes. A daily "help" she gives me. Never gets old for her. She loves the water, soap and the scrubber equally. I try to encourage her so that in a few years she'll still want to help with the dishes.
Henry and Lily LOVE each other. And I love them.
Swimming at Grandma's pool! Henry was a champ although his first time swimming was not the same as Lil's. She was SO into it. And even now, she wanted me to dunk her and she was excited to learn how to move along the side by herself like her cousin, Madi. Henry was more chill. He was content but less enthusiastic. We'll see how he feels when summer comes along.
Thank you to all who helped me figure out the best way to keep posting. Right now I'm using Picasa Web Albums. When I run out of room there, I'll probably do Flickr or something else. And I'll have to start shrinking my files before posting. Thanks to everyone!
