Penelope is a very social baby, she loves interacting with everyone and watching the world go by from her stroller or sling. Mommy and Penelope have kept busy and made many friends this year by taking part in mommy & baby yoga, salsa babies dance classes, swim lessons and several different moms groups. Penelope began walking about three weeks ago, her is very proud of herself, especially since she never crawled. She was the last of her friends to become mobile, but she is the first of them to walk! Penelope loves her mommy and daddy (especially their cuddles & kisses), cheerios, anything everyone else is eating or doing, playing patty-cake & peek-a-boo, and waving bye-bye, and being sung and danced to sleep.

Ruth sends us this birthday report: Josette, nicknamed 'Josie Bear', is noisy and mischievous, but truly one of the most adorable little munchkins ever (next to her big sister Mikayla). She's exploring her little world daily... Trying new food, learning to walk, and waving goodbye to complete strangers are some of her favorite pastimes. Best of all, she is a terrific cuddler, and lights up the room when she smiles with that toothy smile.

...to Riley who turned 1 on June 21. Kate says that Riley is a little ray of sunshine in his mom and dad's lives.
