Fair Oaks Dairy Farm

April 6th we went to the Dairy Farm with the Penziol cousins.  We saw a baby calf be born, took a bus tour, saw the milking station, watched a 3D movie, visited the museum and had lunch there!

Dane- 6 month stats

At his 6 month check up (a couple weeks ago...) he was doing everything he was suppose to!  He's even sitting up w/o support which the Dr said he didn't expect to see until he was 7 months.  He's still nursing and is eating baby food too.  He's had bananas, pears, apples, mixed fruits, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, corn and I'm sure I'm missing some.  He seems to like all of it!  I think he's about ready for puffs since lately he's been grabbing food off my plate and trying to eat it :)  Dane takes a couple naps a day some short and some long.  We don't really follow any kind of schedule. When he's tired he sleeps and when he's hungry he eats!  He's a good sleeper at night (as long as he's in our bed).  He wakes a couple times to eat and goes back to sleep w/i minutes.  Dane is a very mellow kid.  We love to hear him squeal and giggle.  He is reaching and grabbing for EVERYTHING.  He likes his activity centers and johnny jumper.  He doesn't have any teeth yet but I think he's working on it.  He's chewing a lot so his raspberry teether is helping.  We can't believe how fast he's growing and how different he looks every month!  We're 1/2 way to his 1st birthday party.

Fun Flatables

My mom had Nolan and Meredith for the weekend (march 19th) so we took the kids to fun flatables in Merriville.  The kids had a blast!!  We played there for about 2 hours and they didn't want to leave.  I can't wait to go again :)



The kids came back to my house to play for a bit and then Mimi took Nolan, Burke, and Meredith back to her house for a sleepover.  I bet it was a night she'll never forget!
