Brooklyn in 9 months now. She is 23 lbs. 2 oz, 100% and 19.5 inches, 100%. I'm not sure where our little girl  came from! The Dr. is predicting she will be a tall girl! Must take after the Halterman side!

She never stops. Crawls all over the house getting into trouble. She loves to climb the stairs and play with Jackson. 

And you never find her without something in her mouth, anything she can find goes in!  She is such a happy baby. Still only two teeth, but she knows how to use them!

Here is Jackson on his 1st day of preschool. He was so  excited, and loves it. He only goes 2 days a week for 3 hours each day, but it is good for him to get out and socialize. No tears for him or mom. Hopefully that will continue!!

CA Trip

This summer our big trip was to CA. We got to see Bobby's Aunt Sandy, although no pictures were taken, oops.  We went to see Cora, Amber's baby blessed, yet again where was our camera?  But we did get some fun pictures. Jackson loved the beach and the ocean this year. He couldn't get enough, even though we only got to spend a few hours there.

Brooklyn is a natural water-baby. She had no fear when it came to the ocean. She just crawled right in, and loved the water in her face. The sand didn't stop her either. 

We spent one morning at Birch Aquarium. Jackson loved every minute of it. He got to touch a sea star, but passed on the sea cucumber! The sharks were too cool, he liked the leopard sharks. We even saw shark eggs with a shark moving around inside about to hatch.

Bobby didn't have any fun the whole time!

Jackson is such a ham! Luckily Brooklyn slept through most of the aquarium, so no screaming babies for us!

We went to an Angels game one night, where  they won in the bottom of the 10th inning. And we got to see a cool fireworks show after. The kids enjoyed themselves and did well considering it was 10 PM before we even headed to the car. 
We also went to Downtown Disney for a night. It was a lot of fun. We thought about checking out Disneyland, but  heard it was too crazy in the summer rush, although our hotel was about 5 minutes from it. A good trip all in all, although too short.

We spent a few minutes exploring the town Bobby grew up in, Rancho Santa Margarita, from about  2years - 2nd grade. It was fun to see around and play in the nice cool afternoon sun. Not something you get in AZ!

Amber and Sean came back to AZ with us for a few days, and the kids just loved Cora. 

Especially Jackson. He always had to kiss her, and make her smile. He is just too cute.
