Paging Dr. Kapellas

This 4-month-old will see you now.

You're assisting today? No horsin' around in my ER.

Let's take a look at my chart...
15.4 lbs, 26", ready to roll over at any moment and very ready to start solid food!

(whispering) Hey, do you think they're on to me?

I'll just make a cute face to distract them.

All this doctor talk is making me hungry!

I may not be a real doctor, but I sure know my way in and out of an ambulance!

Daddy's little girl

Strollin' at the Shedd

A rainy Saturday makes for a perfect day to take Gannon and Isla to the Aquarium.
And it's a great way to test out the new double stroller.
Gannon: "Wow, what is this place?"
Isla: "Oh, wait 'til I show you!"

And off we were to all of her favorite things to see and do at the aquarium:
The jellyfish,

the penguins,

the belugas (just in time for a feeding),

and she even braved the shark tank in the Wild Reef because she decided Gannon REALLY likes sharks. Hmm...

Navigating the submarine is a must,
as well as a stop at the gift shop.
We did not come home with 3 giant belugas.

"Don't you just love it here, brother?" He must, because he was a great baby all day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We pardoned these two turkeys...
but this one wasn't so lucky. But it sure did taste good! Great job, pk!

Wishing everyone a fabulous day of family and feasting! We have so much to be grateful for and we appreciate and love all of our family and dear friends.

Real boys wear pink...

or sit in a pink Bumbo, so I'm told.

I think it suits me!

Tummy Time for Two

What makes tummy time better?
A big sister to show you how it's done...
or make a Gannon sandwich!
I don't know what she's doing...

but I know she loves me and always makes me smile!

She put the fun in Fun Dip

It just doesn't get any better than this...

Happy Anniversary!

Five years ago today was truly one of the best days of my life. And since then, I've had many best days, all because of my amazing husband, Paul. I can't imagine a more perfect fairy tale than the one I live now. I love you, pk.

Happy Birthday, Daddy-o!

Today is Paul's big day!
Finally time for cake!
Isla thinks the band Cracker said it best when they sang, "Hap-py, Happy Birthday day to me, Happy Birthday to me and to you!" She loves birthdays and reminded us many times that hers in coming in "Jan-wary" and described the cake and party that she'd like. We took notes!
Isla had to help make the wish too. Gannon just wishes he could get a slice of that cake.

"Daddy, will you read that book to me?"
"Of course. This is your other Bible."

Isla couldn't stop snapping photos of Daddy's silly birthday antics. How much cake did you eat?!

Thank you for all you do, Daddy. You take the best care of us and we love you so much! Mwah!

And a special happy 2nd birthday wish for Miss Estelle Murphy, Paul's little birthday buddy!
