Fun With Daddy

Waveland is always busy doing something, but never too busy to have some fun with her Daddy. This is Waveland's version of breakfast in bed for Daddy.

Here, Waveland and her daddy are working their way through a suspended maze at the Children's Museum in Normal, IL.

A little dancing with Daddy!

Of course, what would be life without a trip to the park. She LOVES the swings!

Waveland is practicing 'pumping' her legs to make her swing go without being pushed.

At the Park with Edwin

Waveland and Edwin made a date to meet up at the park. They had lots of fun checking out all the park equipment as there was much to explore. Here they are climbing on a tractor.
Waveland's favorite was the climbing wall. She LOVES to climb!
Edwin's favorite was the construction crew installing a new trash can. He enjoys figuring out how things work.
Here's Waveland dangling over the slide just before take-off.

What a fun day at the park!

I'm going to be a BIG SISTER!

While many things seem to excite Waveland these days, nothing excites her more than the fact that she is going to be a BIG SISTER! She tells everyone she meets that she is going to be a big sister and that we are going to have a 'baby brudder' soon. Here dreams will all come true in exactly one week from today. This is a picture of her baby brother taken at 28 weeks.
If you ask Waveland what she would like her baby brother's name to be, she inevitably will tell you that his name will be 'Gale.' However, she also says she will probably call him 'Alice.' We are not sure why she likes this name so much, but she has taken a liking to this name despite the fact that Mommy and Daddy have yet to tell her his real name. Waveland was asked if she would like to buy baby brother a birthday gift and below is the picture of what she chose to give him. I'm sure she would be delighted to tell you all about what she chose and why. This is supposed to be his 'coming home' outfit (plus 'binkies,' which are essential baby gear as far as Waveland is concerned).

A special request.

This one is for Grandma Schupbach.

Snowmass, CO

Recently, Waveland and Rochelle were able to join Jordan on a trip for work up into the mountains in Snowmass, CO. While we were there, it snowed two days straight leaving behind over a foot and half of snow. Waveland thought she was in a winter wonderland! She loved every minute of it!

Here she is trying to walk down a sidewalk that had yet to be shoveled.
Then she thought she would try to help with snow removal.
But she saved the best for last: Sledding! She and her daddy tried sledding with her shovel and then she attempted sledding on her own using a cardboard box covered with plastic. It was a blast!

Extreme Strollering

While in California, Jordan and Waveland invented a new sport: Extreme Strollering.

WARNING: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! This was done by one crazy dad and his very trusting daughter. While they had a blast and no one was hurt, our stroller suffered some injuries.
