Hot Fun in the Summertime

Wow! Has it really been over 2 months since I last posted?? So sorry! As you know, life has been pretty crazy these days with our future being very unsettled until recently. We have, however been able to spend lots of time outside enjoying the beautiful Colorado summer. This summer seems to be the nicest we've had since living here, and the kids have been loving it! We enjoy different parks during the day, and often get to go for a family walk or find another park in the evening. We've also been able to have playgroup at our house every Thursday to take advantage of the large backyard. One day Truett and Brecken picked an opportune time while both moms were busy indoors, to take a dip in the pool. They had fun bringing every toy they saw into the pool with them.
Last weekend we went to visit my Aunt Julie and Truett had his first and hopefully last experience with calling the ambulance without our knowledge. To reinforce his behavior, he was given several stickers and a cool "Junior Firefighter" tattoo. He feels like pretty hot stuff.

Jayne is getting stronger and more active every day. Each day I think she's about to start crawling, but she still hasn't acheived forward motion. She can do push ups, rock back and forth on her knees, move sideways and backwards, and can sit up on her own from a laying down position.

She's really good at scooting on her back, too, which often leaves her hair in a rats nest when she gets up from a nap. I just have to laugh.
Jayne's also getting much more expression...the one below is one of her favorites.
