Talkin' and Laughin'

Nikki is now 20 weeks! At her 4 month check up she was in the 95th percentile for height and 90th for weight. She has started squealing and has become a lot more vocal. She has almost rolled over, but her little arm prevents her from getting all the way.

In the clip below, she has the hiccups.

Here, she has a very important story to tell...

Thanks for catching up! We'll get more pictures up soon!

3 (and a half) Month Pictures

Here are a few of Nikki's 3 month pictures. Actually, they are closer to 4 months... we were preoccupied with Christmas... :)









Put me in Coach!

This was a Christmas gift from our good friends, Sherri and Jason. She looked so cute all dressed up I had to share. She's ready for her first game!

...Maybe we should focus on rolling over first...


Now we just need to get her a basketball hoop.

First Christmas!

Christmas was very good for Nikki! She and her new cousin, Heidi, made quite the haul. This year we went down to my sister's house in Inver Grove Heights. We celebrated Christmas Eve there, then drove to Andover to celebrate Christmas Day at Mike's parents.

Getting ready for summer weekends at the Ring cabin, Nikki gets her first life jacket.


More presents! ...Oma and Opa (Grandma and Grandpa) went a little over board on gifts. I think they were a little excited to finally have grandkids!

Even Kota scored a big, smoked bone. This is the "before" picture. Yum!

This is the "after" picture when he had such bad gas he had to cover up his nose! The rest of us were in pain too...

Opa Ring and Nikki, starting to wind down.
Winding down more... snuggling with Opa.

Heads get so heavy and hard to hold up by yourself when you are tired! I had to give her a little lift.

Down for the count.
I've been told I can't post any pictures of Heidi until after the birth annoucements go out. Oma was holding Heidi, which is why there are no pictures of her. As soon as the annoucements go out, I'll get some pictures up.
Too much fun and excitement! Can't wait for next year!
