We spent last Friday at John Ball Zoo--the perfect family activity on a beautiful day. Dylan's highlight: riding a camel with Daddy. Ella's highlight: eating the zoo brochure.

Today Dylan climbed out of his crib during naptime. Twice. It was really just a matter of time, but we still can't believe it. He got a big boy bed when Ella was born, but we had limited success when it came to actually getting him to sleep in it, so we decided to let him stay in his crib until he was really ready (I've read that most kids are ready for a bed closer to three anyway). He has never been much of a climber, so we never worried about him getting out of his crib. Until today. I got him to fall asleep in his bed this afternoon but laying down with him until he fell asleep, but I know we can't do that every day. Any ideas for keeping a kid in his crib/bed/room who doesn't want to stay there?

Ella had her six month check up today. She is 17 pounds, 8 ounces and 25 1/2 inches long. She was very happy at the doctor's office until the nurses gave her her shots, but she recovered quickly.
She has been rolling over quite a bit the past few weeks, but this week she has learned to string them together so she can actually roll across the room. Time to put the baby gate up by the stairs again!

It seems like all the cool kids have blogs these days, so I'm trying it out. I'm hoping that this will be a way to stay a little more connected with family and friends, especially those that I don't get to see or talk to on a regular basis. I'm not promising exciting, earth-shattering posts here, so don't get your hopes up, but I'll do my best to keep you entertained (or at least give you something to read when you've come to the end of the internet and are downright bored). Anyway, I hope some of you jump on the blog wagon, if you're not already on it, so I can read all about the minute details of your life.
