Times they are a'changin

Growing up can be hard to do, as Mayumi learned last week. Thanks to Nate's efforts while I was visiting family in Utah, Mayumi was able to give up her two very best friends in the whole world: purple and blue, pictured here.

Baby sister Emiko is also growing up. Here, she is getting more vocal:

Here, she is moving on to finger foods:

And finally--for the big one:

She has since 'crept' across entire rooms and a pretty good pace--but this is literally her very FIRST attempt--caught on tape. YAY EMIKO!!!!!!!!!!

Giving up the pacifier is harder on the parents than the kid with the first born!! It was my crutch with Bryanna and I finally did away with it just around her 3rd birthday!! Now with my 3rd baby, she doesn't even use a pacifier!!!
