Marina and Mitch are two very different people, so I don't want to spend too much time comparing them against each other, especially as they get older and both understand everything we're saying. Having said that, however, I thought it would be fun to shoot a quick video of Mitch doing something Marina did at roughly the same age. We think she was a bit younger, maybe a month or so.
Only about a month late, but here are a few photos from Marina's 2nd birthday party. She is really turning into quite the little girl. She's very outgoing and loves to talk and play hard! I guess that's probably like every 2 year old, though.... except it's MARINA!
I am sorry it has taken me so long to do another blog posting. It has been a very busy summer, and I spend a lot of time helping Mom and Dad take care of Mitch. I don't know what they would do without me.
Let's see, where should I start? Mom and Dad took me to the beach in August, and we spent a lot time running around on the beach. It was one of those rare days when it's not too cold or windy at the beach. We had a great time.
Mom made lunch for us.
Dad didn't let me win the race.
Mitch and I got to share a bath in the big tub at the beach house.
I am so glad he caught me.
Oh, did I tell you that we got a new stroller? My old stroller's name is Big BOB. The new one's name is MONSTER BOB! It is really cool!
I think Mitch and I will get lots of use out of this thing.
We gave Monster BOB a great workout at the Oregon State Fair. Mitch and I had a great time with our friends Judah and Micah. They have a double BOB, too, but I am not sure what its name is.
Here is Mitch enjoying the sights and sounds of the fair.
I didn't like the sheep.
Mom and Mitch
Judah let me borrow a hat.
Well, it is getting late. I will save the other stuff for another message. But hey, check out my hair.
Well, so far, Mitch is a wonderful, mellow little baby. Marina loves him and loves to help take care of her little brother. We have taken lots of little outings with the girl and the boy and Mitch has met lots of people. Marina went to Judah's birthday party today (and brought mom, dad and Mitch) and had a great time, of course! Here are some photos of Mitch and Marina the past week or so.
