Another benefit of belonging to the YMCA- water babies!

It's essentially 30 minutes of parents singing and kids splashing. Sloane really likes the water. Last week John took her while I took photos. This was the very first one I took, and by far the best.

A few of you had asked when we were going to update our blog again- so I figured it's time!

A lot has changed since I last posted! We sold our home in Winterset after deciding that we were just a little too far away from work, friends and the daily activities we really enjoy! So, we are now happy residents of Des Moines! We found a beautiful home to rent just outside of Downtown. I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are! John is home before 5pm, We have a membership to a gym that has childcare, we've had many play dates with old and new friends and Midas (can't forget about him) has a fenced in yard and another English Mastiff, Stella next door to court!

And, as of Sunday we have a new walker in the family! Sloane took about five steps on her own! We have yet to catch it on camera but as soon as we do, we'll be sharing! Considering Sloane loves to get into everything (cabinets, cords, stairs, you name it) I've got the house pretty well baby proofed. I'm hoping this new skill won't bring too many bumps and bruises!

Below are a few recent photos of Sloane....enjoy!
