My Beautiful Niece Holland!

I have a beautiful new niece! My sister Sarah had her little girl Holland Campbell Porter on June 20th -- she was 6#3 oz, 18.5 inches -- exactly the same size as Thatcher! I wish I could be in Las Vegas so I could smoosh her! Isn't she adorable?!

Look at that cutest button nose!

And all the dark hair!!

She is so precious!

The cute new family of four

Proud big brother Rowan (he calls her TaTa! hehe)
Congratulations, Porters! I can't wait to meet her!

We love the Dinosaur Park!

We've been making great use of our Dinosaur Park pass!  Here are some pics we took last month at one of our visits. We've been lots of times since, but I haven't taken more pics...

Gray said "It's a match!!!!"

These ones really WERE a match :)

Gray said this one was a "little baby dinosaur like Thatcher!"

Daddy's favorite dinosaur. Probably because of the striking resemblance...

Grayson says his favorite dinosaurs are the Triceratops and the Stegosaurus

He also really likes the bear and the "cumas" (pumas)

Gray loves this frog and will just climb on top and sit forever. :)

He still doesn't like slides, but Ellie sure loves them!

He thought the pink Dino dinosaur was "so funny!"

Gray and the "hairy rhino monster"

He loves these binoculars.  No idea why.

I love this shot :)

This is Gray the first time he saw the moving dinosaurs inside the museum.  He loved them, and wouldn't move from this spot for about ten minutes.  But he would NOT get any closer than the doorway.  I think he wasn't sure if they were really real or not :)

5 Months Old

My little T Bear is 5 months old! He is incredibly adorable. Take a look:

Thatcher thinks he is a big boy, and can almost sit by himself. He's also almost rolling over back to front. He loves to stand and can support himself just by holding your finger. He loves to laugh at Grayson and his daddy.  And for some reason, he laughs SO hard when he's getting his clothes changed -- I guess it's pretty funny.  I swear he is teething already, and is chewing/gnawing at everything within reach.  He is so happy and fun, and we love him so much!
