In 5 months, Jordan and I have had 5 weddings and we have one more to look forward to in August where Natalie will be the flower girl!! I think we'll be done with weddings for awhile after that one.

Aaron and Ruby sharing a piece of licorice :)
This is our friend Jeremy and he got kicked off the slick track for riding without hands!! So he went in to park and our friend Brad followed him in thinking the race was done :) Last year, the guys were actually banned from the race track!!
Dominic took Natalie for a ride on his gator. She loved it. He even let her drive but helped her out with the steering. So CUTE!
Ruby was in bed by sunset.

The other first is that Ruby ate her first cracker! She loved it... gobbled it right up which wasn't a surprise! She went in for her 6 month checkup yesterday (that's right, my baby's 6 months now) and weighs 18 lbs 6 oz and is 26.5 inches. She eats baby food regularly and can sit up by herself with just the occasional topple-over (or push from Natalie). She's growing so fast. It's true what they say about the second child growing even faster than the first. And a quick update on Natalie - terrible twos: here we come. Yesterday, while Natalie was supposed to be napping, she instead was smearing poop all over her crib. It took me an hour to clean it and her up! She's never done that before (or at least not to that extent). So I guess we had 3 firsts....

We went downtown Holland last night to eat junk and to get pictures of the girls in their costumes. The costume Ruby is in is the one I bought before Natalie was born and the costume Natalie is in is her cousin Ross'. Of course, the girls weren't going to go the extra mile to give me a good picture so this is as good as it gets (at least they weren't crying!)
These are the girls with 'aunt' Crystal. They love her!!
I was trying to get Ruby's outfit off.... isn't she cute?!

Natalie was so hyper tonight. She is as fun as can be and a little chatter box. I can't believe how many words she knows. But she is almost 2. It just seems like she was just 6 months like Ruby is. Ruby is happy as always. Everyone says that she's the most smiley baby they've ever met. She's almost sitting up on her own and she's got 2 bottom teeth. She sleeps awesome and isn't spazing out when we leave her with babysitters, like she used to. But she's stilll a momma's girl. Jordan's and my love deepens for those girls everyday.
