Time with family

Hanging out with my Pop and Grandpa Dave (Robin's dad and Jim's dad)Playing with Uncle Benny (Robin's brother)
At a car show with Grammi and Oma (Jim's mom and Robin's mom)
Taking a ride with Pop in his new electric car. It's one of those little ones (GEM) that doesn't have doors or anything and is just an around town vehicle.
We had a good week in Santa Cruz and Portland. Jim's parents came into town Friday for a car show they were in on Saturday so we got to see them also. Amalea had so much fun with her grandparents and really loved time with my parents puppy! Now we are waiting for Jim to get home on July 1st - we have missed him and Amalea is really close to walking so I think she is just waiting for Jim to get home so she can take her first steps.

Beloved Photography

This picture and the two below were all taken (along with others) by one of my closest friends, Jamie, while she was in town visiting last weekend. You should all check out her website if you need a photographer for anything because she is incredible:

Heat wave

We have been trying our best to escape the current heat wave. Jim is in Peru where it was 32 degrees when he got off the plane early this morning and here we are melting away in the 103 degree weather.
Thursday and Friday we went swimming with Lindsay Pompey.Amalea's crazy after swimming hair.
Today Amalea "helped" me do laundry. I think Sarah is right - she totally smiles for the camera.
Early this week Amalea figured out how to clap. She loves to clap, especially when the music is on. Here she is focused and impressed with herself.

Some of my new things

I (Robin) got a new camera after I left mine on the plane on the way home from Portland a few weeks ago. So, finally, here are a few new pictures of Amalea. We are amazed at how fast she is growing. Now that it's summer and I 'm off work hopefully we'll be better at posting. Thanks for reading!Amalea has been trying to drink out of a sippy cup for a little bit now and just the other day finally got it. Later the same day she had trouble again, but I managed to get this picture of her while she said hello and took a drink (a multi-tasker like her mom).
One thing I absolutely love that Amalea started doing is giving kisses. If you ask for a kiss she will lean in and give one (without puckering so sometimes it can be a bit sloppy). In this picture she is giving kisses to one of the puppets Jim is taking to Peru this week. Hopefully you'll all get to experience an Amalea kiss soon!

Hair fluff

On my last trip to Portland I (Robin) lost my camera, so here is a picture off my phone. It's not the best, but it was time for a new one. This is what Amalea's hair commonly looks like...
