moving right along…

It is the season for changes in this household!  June 30th marked my last day of being on staff at IHOP.  That same week, Russell purchased a Home Inspection franchise and left for a week-long “boot camp” in Leavenworth, Kansas.  In the coming months, he’ll slowly transition out of the remodeling/construction work as he begins getting his own inspections.  This week marked the start of my third trimester of a pregnancy that has flown by.  Around October 7th, we’ll be welcoming a little Capps boy into this world and then a few days later on October 11th, we will celebrate Hannah’s first birthday.  I received my first taste of what this fall will be like when I babysat a friend’s 8-week old little boy earlier this week.  Let’s just say… I’m not quite sure how it’s all going to work but I know that it will.  It has to.  Right?!

The good news is that Hannah seemed fascinated by the little baby.  At first she was sure that he was just a toy, a crying, wiggling, squeezable little toy.  Soon after, however, she realized that he was actually alive and after about a dozen times of “No, Hannah.  No touch”, she was content to watch him, smile at him, and crawl all around him.  Now, I still wouldn’t ever leave her alone with a newborn knowing that she may very well poke his eyes, crawl across his little tummy, and try to eat his feet… but a start is a start.

This summer has been a hot one so far but we’ve enjoyed our pool time, grilling out on the back deck that Russell built last month, and a few Saturday morning trips to the City Market.

celebrating josiah's first birthday... country style

just making sure all of josi's sunscreen was rubbed in..


where she spends a majority of her time each day... her first "playground"

taking some steps with the walker




  1. She is just the cutest baby. Can’t wait to meet the next Capps!

  2. love it love it!

  3. Love reading your updates!! You all sound really well! Miss you and love you.

  4. Can’t wait to see her walk and hear her talk in just a few weeks!!

  5. Such a SWEET family pic!!!! Love it! I just love her eyes!!!

  6. It does have to work! You made me laugh out loud. There will be about 5 months more distance between Hannah and your little one, too. That should make a little difference, right? =) It will totally work!
    I can’t believe she’s walking like that already!
