Seth-9 months

Our sweet baby boy is 9 months old already!!

*Weighs probably about 21 pounds
*Wears size 3 diapers and mostly 12 mos clothes
*He still nurses 5 times a day and eats baby food and finger foods 2-3 times a day-He's a really good eater!!

*He laughs all the time and loves playing with his sisters
*He sleeps all night in his bed
*He is very close to crawling and usually can get to things by scooting around and reaching for them. He's basically mobile without actually crawling yet. He goes from laying down to sitting up all by himself.

*He loves to be outside and play in the water!
*He has his first tooth coming in on the bottom

*He does the sweetest thing when I put him down in his bed, he holds my hand and puts it next to his cheek like don't go Mom:)
*He has a very sweet laugh and even snorts when he laughs sometimes or gets hungry!

We love you so much Seth!!

Ella's 1st Day of 1st Grade

Ella started the 1st grade today! Our Summer went by too fast! She was excited to start her new year and loves School and being with her friends!!

Ella loves to pose for pictures and takes several of herself with my phone each day!

I still can't believe she is in the 1st grade-she's growing up too fast!

She's ready to go and excited about recess on the playground-a must have is shorts under the skirts:)

Lots of cute pictures before school, we probably won't be up as early anymore:)

Her cute little back pack that Gram monogrammed for her.

Sophie had to pose for a picture too.

A picture before school with Daddy-he went into work late so he could go in with us to walk Ella to class!

A picture with her cousins, Christian and Taylor-I can't believe they are in the 3rd and 4th grade already!!

A quick picture with her brother, sister, and teacher, Mrs Roe. After Open House Ella said about her teacher, "she's too pretty to be mean." I thought that was true and so cute of her to say!

Sophie's Summer

Sophie's Summer pictures from my iphone! Several of these pictures have funny stories to them from our funny child who keeps us laughing!!

The Spring started with Sophie giving herself the mullet haircut. Here is a shot of her posing for a picture when I was trying to learn how to fix her hair when it was SO short!

This was a picture from our family Beach trip in May. We were not even out of Benton yet and Sophie had her life jacket on and was READY to go swimming. She rode most of the way there with her life jacket on or close by:)

This shot was from the Beach trip too where she helped me finish off my Snickers apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory-yumm!!

Fell asleep on her Daddy after swimming at the Beach and shopping-she had literally fallen asleep on his lap in the middle of Dinner and never woke back up!

Bed Head! When she goes through my pictures on my phone (almost daily) she asks me "Why is Sophie mad?" when she looks at this one-it's funny!

We have had a lot of watermelon this Summer!

This is how she insisted on going up to the pool one day this Summer-in last years cover up and rain boots. There were a few laughs at the pool on this day and my response was "I have to pick my battles with her-and this one was not worth fighting!

A trip to the Library to start the Summer Reading Program-she loved getting to do this like her big sister! She is so excited about starting 3 year old Preschool this year!!

Trying to go off the diving board at Longhills-she didn't quite make it off but she tried several times!

Fast asleep-I love my sleeping babies!

This pic was from the long drive home from the Girls Beach trip in July. She would get mad and cover up with a Beach hat so we couldn't see her (what is it about kids that think we cant see or hear them when they hide there eyes-too funny!) She rode home for about an hour with her head and faced covered with the hat!

This picture is SO Sophie- most mornings she comes in my room after she wakes up FULLY dressed! She thought that she needed knee socks on, this little girl has quite the personality!
I love that I have a camera phone and can capture all of these funny memories with our silly little girl-there are many more not included too!

Ella Summer

Here are some pictures of Ella that I took with my iphone this Summer. In the Spring I finally upgraded to an iphone with a working camera. So I've been using that camera a lot more since I always have it with me.

Outlet shopping during our May Beach trip. She loves to shop with me (when we actually get a chance to go) this already scares Tadd!

The Bird on her shoulder at the beach:)

Jumping off the board at Longhills

A trip to the Library for the Summer reading Program

Back to the Beach with the Big Blue slide that she loved!

Being buried in the sand like a Mermaid on the Girls Beach Trip

Summer short haircut (with her Birthday feathers still in her hair!)

Posing for pics

Such a little poser

Another big event for Ella this Summer was losing her first tooth! It was really exciting for her and the tooth fairy came and brought her $3, she is such a big girl now:)

Ella went to Super Kids at Church on Thursdays 5 times this Summer and had fun doing fun activities with kids her age. (Her friend Brooks rode with us one day.)

School supply shopping with me at Target! I gave in and let her get a Justin Beiber folder since I made her get the cuter back pack instead of a Justin Beiber one. She is all set for school and I can't believe she will be in 1st grade soon!! I text Tadd this pic and told him she is a first grader going on 16 and that we were in trouble-ha! She also picked out a lot of purple things with sparkles, which I know my Mom is up in Heaven laughing about-she always told me those were my favorites! Ella seems to be my mini-me at times. I have loved having her home with us all Summer and I'm not ready for her to go back to school yet:( or the early mornings!!

If anyone is still reading this and knows how to upload iphone pics to a blog please let me know! I had to email them all to me individually to put them on the blog-ha!
