Cute and Crazy

It's been awhile since I've posted any pictures or updates of Marin. She's 15 months already and moving all over the place. She has a new infatuation with the dog, loves cheese, knows where her nose is, her hair is getting quite long (esp. on top!), claps when she hears music, likes to be held, and is a signing pro. She just started attending the Bible Study Kaden and I go to and seems to enjoy it (i.e. there's no separating issues). She and I also just finished her first "session" of baby story time at the library. She was an adventurous one...never really sitting and paying attention to the story, but always up walking around. She did get the hang of it more by the last week and I could tell she really had fun with the songs and rhymes. Next week she goes in for her well visit with the dr., so I'll have stats and comparisons then.

Bob the Builder Exhibit

Our local Children's Museum has a Bob the Builder exhibit for the next several months. Kaden and I had been looking forward to checking it out and we weren't disappointed. We could have spent our entire visit there (it did get crowded as the morning went on though). There were TONS of things to do, many if not all of the machines to sit on, and even a book corner. It was a great place for Marin too, because she could crawl around and explore. It was a bit tricky keeping them both in my field of vision! Here are some of my favorite photos of our fun visit to the exhibit!

We have plans to head back to the museum later this week and I'm SURE we'll be hitting this area again. If you're in our neck of the woods before June, be sure to stop by...I'll almost guarentee your whole family will enjoy it.

Kaden: "Mom, if you were on the menu I'd order you."

Kaden to Marin: "Marin, if you do that again, I'm going to sell you at the garage sale."

It's been a rather nasty weekend around here. Marin came down with the flu on Wednesday night and by Friday night we'd all been hit. We spent all of Saturday in various stages of sick and recovery. Today has been more of the same. I'm VERY done with the flu, but oh so thankful it wasn't last weekend when I was having a great time in Columbus, or during the week when Jason is gone all day at work, or next weekend when I'm suppose to attend a women's conference at church. Gotta look on the bright side, right?

As for my lack of posts, I'll try to post a more upbeat one with photos later this week!
