With the summer beach crowds out in full force…sometimes it’s just easier to do this.

Reunion.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 11:41 pm
Today, we had a mini, Lorenzen family reunion here in sunny southern Cali.
Lots of fun and good, good times!
(credit is due to Uncle Taylor for these great pictures).

Making progress.

Irelynd has done really well this week in her swimming lessons.  Still reluctant in many ways, but much better than last week.
Uncle Taylor let me borrow his zoom lens today so I could take pictures without her seeing me!

This is the “please don’t make me get in” face.

correction.

Auntie Jen kindly reminded me that Haidyn’s vocabulary is, in fact, more broad than previously mentioned.  Haidyn can also say: hi, bye, and Jen (of course)! :-)

Haidyn update.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 5:50 pm
Haidyn finally sprouted her first top tooth. Only three teeth at thirteen months? It doesn’t stop her from eating anything and everything. Some favorite “ummy” foods….raspberries, cheese, black beans, carrots and tofu…yes, tofu. :-)
She could walk if she wanted to walk. Instead, she still prefers speed crawling or mommy’s hip for transportation.
Very vocal (which has been apparent since birth)! :-)
The four words we can understand:
-mommy
-owi (owen)
-obi (kobi)
-ummy (yummy)
Extremely determined…especially at trying to get her shoes on her feet!
Growing up way too fast.

Unsuccessful…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 1:43 am
…day at swim lessons.
The truth is, I could barely get Irelynd to get into the pool…much less snap a decent photo of her in action.
Resorting to bribery for Friday’s lesson.

Swim.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari @ 9:48 pm
Today was Irelynd’s first day of swim lessons.  She was quite timid, as expected, but she did a great job.
I wasn’t able to get a good action shot today…I have five more sessions to work on it!
