Arthur Learns to Crawl

I have found it fascinating to watch Arthur, determined and strong, learn to crawl.

Nenna Fish

Sienna has been taking swim lessons, and recently took off with them.


Beach Hop

Sienna, Arthur and I went beach hopping early on a Tuesday morning  We explored tide pool and found some sea glass.

Tide pools in between Diver's Cove and Shaw's Cove.

Hiking: Oso Creek and West Ridge

We tried a couple new hikes in April that were actually successful (that is, more hiking than whining).

This was Oso Creek Trail.  There were things to do for the kids along the trail, lots of flowers and butterflies. The maze (above) was a big hit.





We did a new Top of the World hike in Aliso and Wood Canyons Park, heading North on the West Ridge trail. John had done this previously on one of his solo hikes.  We went nearly three miles, Sienna walked the whole time and the only complaint came from Dalton's constant hunger.



Oh, the Sass

Sienna in April

Took her "pet" into the store

Bossed me around.


Took a gymnastics class through the city.  She was the youngest kid and the only one who couldn't recognize her name,  Emilia was not there that day.


Wanted to get Minnie glasses.


Whined on a hike or two.


Got Minnie sunglasses.


Was a laundry boat pirate.


Played a lot of hide and sneak.


Rode her little car all the way to school and back (over 1 /2 miles).

Video from gymnastics class. - she was a burrito



What does a camel say? "Watch out, they spit!"

5th Month Milestones



Sleep training.  Yes.  He loves chewing on his Mickey.



After a few days, he started sleeping on his tummy  I love how he's grasping his blanket.


Arthur loves bath time.  I put a couple inches of water in and let him lie down.  He kicks and chews on some foam letters.  Sienna got a little overly generous with the toys this day.


He found his toes this week! I see him deliberately reaching around for them sometimes.


Sienna loves to be in his face.  


Arthur is balanced enough to perch on my hip now; a happy milestone indeed!


And just for kicks and giggles...some kicks and giggles.
