The Easter bunny made a stop at our house this year!
This year for Easter we went to church with my parents, and enjoyed a nice family meal afterwards (I brought the eggs). My parents got Porter a cute Easter basket with a book, outfit, and ball.
Porter's 8 months old and is now a crawler...and hard to keep up with.
His favorite place to crawl is in the laundry room to be with the dogs. Every time I turn around, that's where he's headed.
He also has his first tooth...the bottom right. Of course I forgot to take a picture of it, but I made up for it with these cute ones.
We have a scooter! Porter started scooting on Feb. 3rd.
Now I can't keep him in one spot...
At 7 months Porter started to wave hi and bye, started eating solid food, and could even grab a few things to feed himself.
He LOVES bath time...
and falls asleep on most car rides.
Porter started eating baby food at 6 months. He's not a huge fan of peas, but he does enjoy carrots and sweet potato. He'll gobble down any fruit, but his all time favorite is banana.
I love my baby bullet. I'm able to make a month worth of food for him and store it in the freezer. It's cheaper, and I know exactly what I'm feeding him :)
We took the trailer out to Lake Cachuma to ring in the New Year. It was our first time coming to this camp site and it was beautiful! They had hook ups right next to the lake. Every morning Scott got up early to go fishing...with no luck. We did a few hikes around the campsite, and played board games at night.
The first day we drove in to Solvang. I think this is the cutest little town. We ate breakfast at Paula's Pancake house. Their Danish pancakes are to die for. I think we'll make it a tradition to eat there every time we're in town. We walked the streets and went into some of the shops. We also found a replica of the "Little Mermaid" statue. When we were in Denmark the real statue was on tour in Japan...so we made up for it by taking picture in front of this fake one.
We also went to Santa Barbara for a day. The beach was so pretty and there was an outdoor market along the road. We were also able to tour the Santa Barbara Mission. I learned that the book "Island of the Blue Dolphins" was based on a Native American that was brought to that mission and is now buried there.
It was so much fun spending family time together, the perfect way to celebrate a New Year.
