new, firsts, and fun times!

First of all, I would like to make a very exciting announcement! Randy and Kara Borg (my brother and sister-in-law) had their first baby, a boy, last night July 7th. Cohen Alexander arrived into this world around 10pm 7 lbs nearly 10 oz, 21.5" with lots of dark hair as you will notice! He looks so perfect, I can't wait to meet him. I have received a few emails from Randy and you can feel his pride seeping from the letters in his emails!! We are very happy for you Randy and Kara, and can't wait to see Cohen grow up!




We had such a nice weekend! Friday I took Charli to the waterpark to play with Grandma Borg, Aunt Rachelle, Ryen, and Macey. We had a lot of fun. Rachelle and I event went down the slides together!! Other firsts this week were Charli eating lemon juice, and liking it! She would open her mouth for more! She also ate fish for the first time this week. Saturday we went out to the Borg farm where Charli got to play with her cousins more and eat her first sucker!!! Generally we would not let her eat a sucker, but - her cousin has been waiting to give her a sucker since she got sick, and Ryen has NOT forgotten...so we let her eat a sucker. And, imagine that, she liked it! Sunday we went back to the waterpark, and again had a great time! Charli is such a water bug! When we got home and it was time for her bath she just lit up when she saw her daddy running the bath water! We had such a nice weekend!

I was so good at eating my sucker!

my first AND second sucker at the same time!!


my eyes are closed, but YOU try to take a picture with three girls!


putting groceries away with daddy!

bath time!! Hey Kasper...why did you jump in with me?!

Gee, do I look like I did something naughty or what?!

more sucker pictures!!


I liked the purple and the red equally...it was hard to eat only one!

this sucker almost got stuck in my mouth :-)

we all got to eat suckers on this day...FUN!

What a weekend! Charli looked as if she enjoyed every minute of it. You sound so happy and Charli looks so happy. And that makes all of us happy! Chad and you are such great parents with so much love to give. Charli is so lucky!

Looks like Charli REALLY enjoyed those suckers! I haven't tried that with Landon, maybe I need to! Baby Cohen is ADORABLE! Just look at that dark hair!
