Happy 2nd Birthday!

Birthday pictures from the party we had at our house (one of three parties she ended up having), plus one extra uninvited guest.

She's paying more attention to the computer now - that's my girl!

We went to a Wiggles concert with some friends of ours, and everyone had a blast. Caitlin was wiggling and dancing her little heart out for some of the more active numbers. Too bad my camera can't shoot short movies...

We also took a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo with Grandma Rowand. It was Caitlin's first time at the zoo, and she really enjoyed it - particularly the otters. I took photos of Caitlin; the animals are pretty standard zoo-fare, so I wasn't very interested in recording them. Except the peacock that we came across (they let a few roam free on the grounds) sitting just off one of the paths and then on one of the roofs. Caitlin thought it was very pretty.

Grandmom Rowand and Aunt Jen came out for a visit, and all of the women took a day trip to Whidbey Island to do the sightseeing thing.

Caitlin's first picture! She chose excellent subject material and did a great job with the camera.

We built a fort in the living room for Caitlin - and she loved it. So much it was tough to get her to sit still for a picture...

Caitlin came with us to both of the Christmas parties for our Buick clubs (Puget Sound Chapter and the North Cascade Chapter of the Buick Club of America) and especially at the North Cascade party, she had a great time. As always, she charmed Don's heart and ran right up to him to say hello and get a hug - that's him in the final two pictures. Also, Jordan (granddaughter to a very proud Louie) was a big help in playing with Caitlin and watching her during the party. That's her in the third to last picture sitting on the floor with Caitlin.

We went up to see Deb's parents for their Christmas "Open House" Party, and got a few pictures of Caitlin playing games on Grandmom's computer, and two photos of her crashed out asleep in her car seat as we waited for the ferry. We also got a short movie of her dancing about and playing on the computer.

Christmas 2004

Caitlin's 3rd Christmas, and the trend towards ever-larger gift piles continues. The entire pile of gifts in the first photo, plus the wagon is all for Caitlin. Yikes! I appreciate the thoughts - all of them - but I'm getting worried Caitlin has way too much "stuff". It's great to not have to buy many toys for her, but it's a bit crazy that she never even has the chance to play with more than half her toys before she gets too old for them. At least the clothes situation is getting more normal as she grows - for a while, we could have put her in a new outfit every day and she still would never have worn all of them before she outgrew something... A good problem to have, I suppose, just seems slightly wrong to shower so much stuff on such a little kid. Then again, maybe I'm just jealous because I don't recall getting this much stuff when I was her age. :-)

Caitlin was overwhelmed by the gift pile and a bit grumpy at first, but she had fun. Afterwards, we was just tired and needed some convincing to record a short "Thank You" movie for everyone. The first movie is her when she first saw the gift pile, the second movie is her grumpy thank you message, the third movie is her happy thank you message. The first movie is huge, so dial-up users, beware!

Playing fairy princess with her new stuff... She turned me into a potato with her magic wand. We're still not sure what she turned Deb into. :-)

It snowed while were visiting Deb's parents to install their new DSL modem. Kids and snow are cure, and it was snowing pretty hard, so Caitlin was enjoying it.

Deb took some pictures of Caitlin while she was playing dress-up. They came out overexposed for some reason, but they're clear otherwise. If I get adventurous, maybe I'll try and clean up the photos later on.

CaitlinPhotos1058.jpg (1369702 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1059.jpg (1317360 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1060.jpg (1528062 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1061.jpg (1381221 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1062.jpg (1560168 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1063.jpg (1426859 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1064.jpg (1679255 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1065.jpg (1642241 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1066.jpg (1599021 bytes) CaitlinPhotos1067.jpg (1386485 bytes)

Some playtime out front... Caitlin was moving around fast enough that Deb had a tough time getting clear pictures. Some of them are kind of cool shots, though because Deb got the camera still, and the focus is correct - but Caitlin was moving and she is the only thing blurred in the picture. A bit odd, but kind of cool in that it captures her "always in motion" style of playing in a still photograph.

An afternoon at the park with friends. They apparently had a lot of fun feeding the ducks at the pond.
