Presley is doing great. On Friday she put her arms out for Derek to pick her up! She won't go to him if I am there, but at least now I can leave her with him if I need to.

And.............she started crawling today!! A real crawl!! She still doesn't have the rhythm down perfect, but she is up on her hands and knees and moving forward. I expect in a couple of days she will be everywhere! She was sitting up on one of the stairs today, so we need to get the gate back up until she gets better.

I don't have many good pictures. Here in Arizona, you cannot go outside!! So, the only pictures I can take are inside. Hopefully I will be able to take the kids out this fall and winter and get some better shots. Have a good day!!

Presley's first battle scars. Can you see the teeth marks?? But Landon really does love her (I think!!) and just yesterday they were giving each other kisses!!
