It isn't entirely true that today we gave Maggie her first solid food. Last week she gummed a banana I had, and a few days before that we let her lick a potato chip. But today she sat in a high chair all by herself and we offered her some peas.

Well, we have a lot of catching up to do on our blog, but the most important thing is that we welcomed our daughter Margaret Louise at 2:01am on Thursday, September 5, 2013. At 9 pounds and 21 inches, she is a healthy and happy baby! We are all delighted and look forward to this new chapter with our growing family.

The weather has finally been nice enough that we can play outside after dinner (we're up to about 19 hours of sunlight a day too, which helps). Philip has been trying to figure out how to blow bubbles. As it turns out, this can be pretty tricky when you're only 2. One of the tricky things is learning how to keep the bubble solution in the bubble bottle.
No tears over spilled bubbles.

Last weekend the Alaska Railroad held their annual open house. This was the first year that Philip was old enough to be excited, so we were excited to have this little adventure with him. We're also planning a train ride to Denali later this summer, so we wanted to make sure that he liked being on a train and wasn't scare. He LOVED it!
I commented on how nice the Railroad keeps their train cars. Brian said that the ones coming into the Refinery aren't nearly as nice. I suppose they were trying to impress, but everything was clean and polished so it sparkled!

Philip turned 2 this last Thursday. We had a small party for him the evening of his birthday and then a larger party this weekend. I didn't get many good pics at either event, so I wanted to do a little photo shoot to show how much this little guy has changed in the last year. His personality is still as sweet as ever, but he's a little boy now, not a baby. He's talking up a storm and goes on adventures whenever the opportunity arises.
Still looking a lot like his Dad.
