We escaped the dreadful heat this weekend...which seemed way too short! G had soo much fun, his muddy clothing is proof of it. It was great to get up north, enjoy the beauty & make new friends.  ps~don't you want to kiss P's cheeks off?! And, O's hat was fabulous for sleeping time...obviously! :)

I just can't get enough...

 I just can't get enough of you. Your smile is sooo contagious. Here you are at two months, smiling and cooing away. Gorgeous. At a whopping 9 pounds 9 ounces might I add.

When we're helping...we're happy.

Oh Pyper, you came running to me after your bath holding Oakley's matching pajamas begging me to try them on her. You were so persistent.... and guess what?! They fit. You were thrilled. You absolutely could NOT stop smiling, you begged and begged for us to take pictures. How cute are you two?! :)

It's official... we have a helper on our hands. Pyper Jane. As I was taking photos of Oakley,  I had her laying on the floor. I forgot something and quickly went to get it, I told you I would be right back. As I was walking back I heard a HUGE gasp come out of Gaje. He screamed at me, "PYPER PICKED UP OAKLEY!!!!!!" As I bolted it back to where I left her, I saw you standing with our tiny newborn bouncing her on your hip. You looked at me and said, "Oh, it's otay. She was crying, but now she's happy!" With a huge grin on your face as our baby's head flopped around and around unsupported.

So you think you can dance?!

Oh P. How fun, you started dance today! You were SO excited until we got to your studio. You clammed right up and wouldn't talk for the first half of class. But all of the sudden when the princess tiara and wand came out, you busted moves even I hadn't seen before. You are adorable and so entertaining to watch.

WHOA! Look out! Some one won't stop growing! Today you raced home as fast as your bike could take you and into my arms grinning from ear to ear. You lost your first tooth at school. You were ECSTATIC!!! I was so sad because this was such a big milestone, truly telling me you are getting older... why can't you be my little guy forever?! :) Yet, I was so thrilled for you. You have been wiggling that same tooth for weeks now, and finally it happened. Your teacher sent you home with an award and tooth necklace. Wow, they take this seriously! :) That night the tooth fairy visited you, you lucky little duck!

truly {BLESSED}

Your blessing day was truly special. There you were in a huge circle filled with love, surrounded by amazing men. What a sweet blessing your father gave you. He spoke of your long awaited arrival, your special name and why we chose it and all of the wonderful things you have in store for you. You have such a sweet spirit and bring so much joy into our home. We are blessed to have you, as are you.

Oh goodness. Who do you look like?! We are so, so in love with you baby doll. We can't get enough of you. I so enjoy being able to stay at home with you and P during the day. You constantly bring smiles to our faces. I wish I could keep you new and tiny forever. However, it is so fun watching you grow!
