Happy Belated Birthday to Dan!!

Well, here we are in Duluth again! Dan had the opportunity for a work hunting weekend up north so I decided the girls and I should go to Duluth for a visit. Duluth in the fall is my favorite- if we can get rid of this unpleasant weather! Minnesota has been getting hit with torrential rains and wind but hopefully it's tapering off.

Dan just had his 27th birthday this past Tuesday! Dan's aunts Mary and Susie and cousin Steve all babysat for us, so a big thank you!  It was actually a very good game- the Twins clinched the Central Division after the White Sox lost (a lot of people stayed to watch the White Sox game on the screen at Target Field but it was too late for us!) I attempted to make Dan a chocolate cake from scratch but royally screwed it up... One of the sections got stuck in the pan and broke, so it was NOT pretty! (It was still tasty I have to say.) 

The girls are definitely acting older and doing even more. One of the most exciting milestones Madeline is working on is holding her own bottle! I can't wait until she does it full-time! Josie and Maddie are both army crawling all over the place, plus working on "real crawling". When we lay on the floor, all three love to crawl all over us. Maddie and Josie are able to pull themselves up to standing (using us to push up from). Sofia can pull herself up if she grabs onto our hands and is showing a little more interest to start army crawling. She is still jabbering away, though. We are hearing "dadada" and some other sounds I can't really discern.

(Disclaimer: Blogger changed how to format the posts and I have no idea how to work it now so below might look like a total mess until I figure it out. I thought I was good at this stuff! If you use blogger and know the trick let me know.)

Dan's very pathetic birthday cake. I am no Martha Stewart.
