First Pigtails

Sarah's hair has been at a very awkward length for a while now.  We try to keep clips in it to keep the hair out of her face, but she pulls them right out.

It's just barely starting to be long enough to put into pigtails. :)  Whenever I can get her to sit still long enough, that is.

Here are a couple pictures from the first time we did it:

I'm still pretty bad at it, but I guess I'll get lots of practice in the years to come!

Funny Girl

Sarah was throwing a tantrum in my lap while I was sitting at the computer yesterday, so I looked around to see what I could do to calm her down and saw the camera.  I grabbed it, and Sarah immediately stopped crying and gave me a cheesy smile and said "cheeeeeese!"

I quickly changed the mode on the camera to video to see what she would do.

Here's my squirmy little girl:

My favorite part is when she said "Ba-Pa" for Grandpa.  She said this one for the first time when we were Skyping with my family on Sunday.  It's so cute. :)

Baseball in the Backyard!

Ask James and Paul what their favorite part of the new house is, and they will both probably tell you the same thing: the backyard!  We've got a lot of work to do on it before it looks good.  The "lawn" isn't much to speak of, and there are weeds everywhere.  But that doesn't keep us from having fun!

Yesterday we had a laid back Labor Day.  We started the day out right with fried rice for breakfast and then baseball in the backyard!  What could be better? :)

 Happy spectators, ready for a good show:

A few helpful tips from coach:



Our proud little baseball player to be:

And Sarah, our cute little bat girl, shagging balls with the best of them:

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day!
