Here she is Miss Canada… Okay maybe not but she is practising her wave. I can’t believe my little girl is almost 7 months. She has become quite a little mover and shaker. Over the last week she has learned to wave (as shown in the picture, it is the progression of a wave anyway since it doesn’t happen very quickly) and she has learned how to get around. She’s not crawling but as you’ll see in the preceding group of pictures she can “commando” crawl by using her forearms to pull her body forward. Anyway, she’s a sweet little girl and very content!

I had a great weekend starting off with the Aquarium on Saturday. On sunday after church we heading to Mom & Dad Neufeld’s house for lunch. Mom made some great lettuce wraps that I’m going to have get the recipe for.

Then for dinner we had Mom and Dad Davenport over and James made salmon and rice with vegetables. I got a Siamese fighting fish from Sam, Jake and Lanae for my gift and James got me a beautiful potted plant with a calla lily (my favorite flower). I even managed to get in a few pictures this weekend!

So getting to what we’ve been up to lately! We went to the Vancouver Aquarium today because haven’t been for awhile and really needed to do something fun together as a family. We went with some family friends and had an absolute blast. We will definitely make a habit of doing that maybe once every year or two.

Sam said he loved the “baby belugas” and Jake said he liked it when the belugas “spit” on the little girl.

They both were fascinated by every tank and couldn’t stand still for more than few seconds at every one. Lanae was amazing and really only fussed for a few minutes here and there when she would normally have been napping. She eventually fell asleep in her backpack twice but neither were very long naps. Needless to say everyone was very exhausted when we got home.

Before I share what we’ve been up to lately I had to share a few fun pictures for the benefit of those whom have not seen the kids recently.

The first few are of Lanae. She’s getting so big and is very busy. She’s eating solids and taking a bottle. I’m pretty sure she’s going to be crawling soon as she manages to roll all around a room when she wants to get going and just recently has tried to get up on all fours. She’s not sitting on her own yet but I’m sure that will follow shortly.

There’s also a few pictures of Jacob! He’s a fun kid! Sometimes a ham, sometimes a mama’s boy. We’re not always sure when the mood will strike. For now he loves following his big brother around especially at baseball.

Finally a few of Sam! He’s getting huge and nearly finished kindergarten. I can’t believe next year he’ll be starting grade 1 (eeeekkk). Where does the time go. Anyway for now he’s doing T-ball and will be starting soccer at the beginning of July. He loves sports and is very adept at them as well. There isn’t a day that goes by that he’s off doing sports in some way or another.

Okay I’ve been harassed enough by my friend Christa to start this blog so here goes. I figured I could probaby use it to keep all my out of town relatives updated on the happenings of the Davenport household without having to send a mass amount of pictures. Hopefully you all enjoy this and have a chance to see our beautiful family as they grow!
