May Fun!

We've had fun this month!  The weather has been so nice, so we've had lots of outside time.  We took a long weekend down to Austin and San Antonio for Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed visiting with our parents.  It was a fun start to the summer and we are looking forward to June and July!!

 Playing with Grandma in Austin.
 Happy Memorial Day!
 Sophia and Addison love playing together!  Sophia likes to "show Addison how to play".
 She is getting closer and closer to crawling. Abby is not sure if she is ready to be run over by 2 kids!
 We had a fun lunch outside!
 We have had a lot of park time with the beautiful weather.
 Addison loves swinging!
 My girls!
 Fun day at the Arboretum!
 Sophia did a lot of running.
 While Addison relaxed :)  She is pretty ready for a nap right here.
I think she chased birds for close to an hour.

Sophia's Last Day of Preschool

Sophia had her last day of Preschool in the 18-24 month class on May 29th!  We loved her teachers and her school so much, and will miss it this summer.  Next year I will be sure to take a "First Day of School" picture so that we can compare!!  Here is a picture of her last September just to show how much taller she has gotten.  I need to remind her to stop growing up so fast!

8 Months!

Our sweet Addison is 8 months old!  To say time is going by quickly is an understatement...it is even worse this time around since I have two kids to chase around.  We don't have an appt this month so I don't know her height or weight.  I think she is about 20 pounds.  A lot has happened with Addison this month!
  • She became a sitter this month!
  • She is quite a mover and can get all over the room by rolling and scooting but cannot crawl yet.  At the very end this month I noticed she was lifting her belly up and getting on all fours, so she is getting a little closer.  I can't believe she is almost mobile!!
  • Takes 4 bottles a day (transitioned to formula towards the end of this month) and 3 solid meals a day.  We have introduced puffs, Gerber cookies and yogurt melts and mum mums.  She does okay but not great.  Still not quite ready for table foods.
  • She got her first 2 bottom teeth at the beginning of this month...right about the same time.  It was a rough week but we are back to being a happy girl!
  • She has become extremely vocal the last month.  Loves to scream and hear herself talk. 
  • Wears size 3 diapers and size 12 month clothes.
  • She started sleeping through the night towards the middle of this month!!  Hallelujah!  She normally goes down between 8:15/8:30 and wakes up between 7:30/8am.  She also takes a short morning nap, long afternoon nap, and sometimes a short nap around 7pm after dinner.
  • She is our happy girl...she is generally just very happy and smiley.  She loves to play on the floor with her toys and still likes playing in her bouncer and exersaucer.  She has the sweetest laugh.  
  • Whenever she sees her daddy walk through the door her face lights up...it is precious!  She pretty much smiles at him throughout dinner.
  • Addison no longer likes to have her diaper changed...boo! 

Here are a few pictures from this month!

You can see her two bottom teeth here.

Sittin' pretty :)


Happy girl!

Addison loves playing with her sister!
Sweet Addison, we always talk about how you are such a good baby.  We feel so lucky to have you in our lives.  You are so loved!!
