Happy Birthday Casey!!

With the new babies, the dogs have become somewhat neglected over the past 10 months.  However, now that the babies are older we can spend a little more time giving the puppies attention.  They have been soo good and are starting to get some luvin from the babies too.  Today, Casey eight years old.  She has been with Tim since he graduated college.  Happy Birthday Casey!!

Welcome Amelia Maechler Short

I can't believe my (Heather) little brother is a DADDY!  Megan and Chris have been waiting for their little girl to arrive, and she made her entrance into the world on Tuesday.  We were worried about Megan the past few weeks- her blood pressure was really high so her doctor put her on bed rest and continued to monitor her blood pressure and amniotic fluid levels.  This Monday they decided Amelia was ready to come, so on Tuesday Megan was scheduled for a C-section!  We were at the hospital Tuesday night just waiting to meet our precious girl.  SHE IS GORGEOUS!!  If I do say so myself ;) 

I think this picture looks like her Daddy when he was little... but a cuter, girl version :)

Chris, the very proud Papa!

and Heather, the very proud Aunt.

Tim, excited to hold Amelia

The beautiful Amelia, snugly and warm.

We are so excited that you are finally here!  We have waited a long time to meet you and we love you SO MUCH!  We can't wait to do fun stuff with you, and Kennedy is so excited to have another girl to play with :)  Megan and Chris, we are so proud of you!

Walkin with the walkers

Graham and Kennedy have really taken to their walkers over the past few weeks.  We put together a video of their first few steps and also included some more recent videos.  Now, they crawl right up to the walkers and start on their own.  Kennedy takes her time, but Graham moves so fast his little legs have a hard time keeping up.  Now, if only they could figure out how to turn...

10 months

Can you believe the babies are 10 months?  Where has the time gone?  They are getting so big.  Its getting very difficult for them to sit still for even 5 seconds for their pictures.  They are practicing walking with their walkers and are getting very good - if only they knew how to turn.  Graham loves to run with it.  We'll post a video soon!

Old Pics: 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, 6 months, 7 months8 months, and 9 months.

Mom, we're awake - let us out!

Ready to move...

Hi mom!

Too late!

Hi Dad!

This picture stuff is boring, we're outta here.

Graham and socks

So, every time we try to put shoes or socks on Graham now, he always tries to take them off.  Sometimes, he even tries to remove the feet from his pjs.  Check out the video below.

Graham's first haircut

Graham's hair was getting a little long in the back and his bangs were in his face, so we decided it was time for his first official hair cut.  We went to a local place for kids, called the Hairy Elephant- they have cars and planes and trains for the chairs and a tv for the kids to watch while they're getting a trim.  Graham did such a great job!  He didn't fuss at all, and was so interested in the lady that cut his hair and everything else around him, he didn't watch the Baby Einstein video they put in for him.  And he looked like such a little man when he was done!  Such a good, sweet boy.

watch out, I'm on the go!

being so patient

they even gave us a certificate with some hair clippings to remember Graham's big day. 

Maybe next year Kennedy will have enough hair for her first hair cut!  Maybe... ;)
