The life and times of Jack, Owen and Ella Crossett

Monday, June 30, 2008


We have been so busy lately it is nice to have a day to really relax. We spent the weekend working on the house and we are exhausted (not to mention the 7 mile run yesterday...) but today I officially accomplished almost nothing so I am doing better! Here are new pictures from yesterday and today.
Jack with this seasons hottest accessory...a grocery cart!
Still loving the Zebra
Owen working on some tummy skills
It looks like Jack is about to bite him...

Turns out he was going in for a kiss (although Owen looks less that thrilled that I am allowing it!)
Boys being silly
Not sure what was so funny!
More kisses!
Owen is working on crawling now that sitting is no longer a big enough challenge. He gets his legs up under him or up on his arms but never at the same time. He does manage to scoot himself around in this manner fairly effectively though.

Check Him Out!

Owen is getting really good at sitting and can sit by himself for quite a long time...

Until this happens...

He is still happy about it though!

Bright, Sunshiney Day!

We tried to spend a lot of time outside today since it was so nice out and there is a lot of rainy days in the forecast. Here are some pictures from the evening.

He looks tired too, huh?

Well we got our new camera yesterday (forgive the videos not having sound, we are still figuring it out) before we went to the Lansing Lugnuts game so I took lots of pictures. Here are some highlights!
