Sneak Peek

Our sweet friend Annie offered to take some pictures of Piper for us (and somehow I talked her into taking pics of all of us!). She did a great job and I love them all! Here is just a sneak peek of a few...including one of my favorites that I can definitely use to blackmail Piper later in life, if necessary :)

Big & Bigger

I can't believe it, but Piper is already 8 weeks old, and Justus is almost 2 & 1/2...seriously, where does the time go?? They are both getting SO BIG! At her last check up about a week ago, Piper already weighed 11 lbs, 14 oz and was 23.5" long! (I mean, this girl weighed 5 lbs, 15 oz when she was born) She is getting chubby and we LOVE it :)As for Justus, I have no idea how idea how tall he is or how much he weighs, but he seems older, smarter, bigger every day. He talks non-stop. He doesn't walk anywhere - he is ALWAYS running. He is so fun to watch and listen to. I am sure our lives would be pretty boring without him!
Piper is still easy. Loves to eat. Loves sleep. Always smiling... :)
Best friends already. I'm sure they will never fight. Ha ha.
Does anyone else notice the orange hair?? Grammie? Nancy? Talk to me.
We found Justus in bed like this the other night. I have no clue how he works himself into these positions but he always finds a way to make sleep more interesting!
Love these little cuties :)

GiGi has a girl!

Much to her surprise, Trav's mom, "GiGi", now has a little girl in her life!! She came to meet Piper a few weeks ago. And, as always, she came with suitcases full of goodies for all of us! Here's her first meeting with Piper... Justus was having fun diving into the piles of clothes GiGi brought for him. (Oh, and the entire suitcase behind them is filled with cute, girly clothes for Piper - thanks, Aunt Leah!)
Getting some grandson cuddles :)
Gearing up to leave the house (a rare occurrence these days!). Having GiGi here gave us a good excuse to get dressed (well, most days) and go out!
Having lunch at one of our favorite spots in Edinburgh, The Elephant House.
We went to the National Museum of Scotland (in Edinburgh), and Justus was having fun in their kids area dressing up as a Roman soldier (or whatever he was supposed to be!).
GiGi even got to experience "Panda Club" with Justus. She was a good sport and participated in pretty much everything, earning herself a hand stamp from the instructor, Miss Jackie :)
It was so much fun to have her here and our time went by way too fast. Can't wait to come home this summer!

The North Sea

Okay well I know it's been ridiculously long since I posted anything here but I have a good excuse!! I promise to put up pictures of Piper soon, but I had to share these cute ones of Justus. Trav took him to the beach (his most requested location) a few weeks ago. Justus does not seem to care one bit that it is literally freezing outside (well, maybe 40 degrees) and that the water in the North Sea is ice cold all year round, not to mention in the middle of winter! He loves to splash and play in the water and, of course, to throw big rocks into the big water. Here he is loving life...More to come... :)
