Summer Time

I have my first real cold. I have a yucky runny nose and a cough. It's no fun. I do love my new outfit from Bree. It's perfect for this hot summer weather.

I enjoyed some pool time today with Mommy. I love to splash! Do you love my bikini? I think I look pretty good. Grandma got this cool pool for me to swim in. I am really lucky to have such a nice family. My Grandma and Auntie Carissa are so great for having us!

Oh What A Day!!

Today started off like every other day. I had to go over to our place to finish up some packing and cleaning. My wonderful mother said she would come over to help and keep us company. We got quite a bit done.
Here is a picture from the packing party we had last week. Thanks to Sabrina, Mark, Jonathan, Jen, and Carissa for helping fill the POD!

When we finished up, Mom agreed to drive past our new home to check out the progress on the models. We drove past the location of our new place, and to our surprise, the foundation was down!!! I can't even believe it. I was so disappointed that I didn't have my camera but I will get a picture soon.

We finally made it home and Reese was playing away on the tile floor. I had a pile of papers sitting near me, and Reese decided she wanted to get her hands on them. We look over, and here she comes... CRAWLING, and the correct way. We hit a huge milestone. I am such a proud Mom!!

We spent some time on Thursday evening over at the Connelly's to visit with some friends who wanted to meeting the new addition, Avery. Bryan, Kay, Stephanie, Mark, and James (along with a short visit from the Foley's) made for a fun night. James (in blue) was more adorable than ever. I think that Reese and Avery will have to fight over this little cutie. It was fun to watch them all look at eachother and smile. Our friends Bryan (in yellow) and Kay are getting married in less than a month!

Miss Reese is 8 months old today. She is really learning to work the camera. She squints her eyes knowing that a flash will be coming soon. It's quite amusing.

Here is little Avery. She is 1 week old today! She is growing up so quickly. :)

Today Ryan and I got to pick out the fun stuff for our new home - carpet, cabinet color, counter color, tile.... It was a little more challenging than we had thought. We did end up upgrading a few things, but did our best to keep the cost down and not get carried away. We also got to take a walk through the models! It was the first time that we were actually in the floor plan that I have been studying on a piece of paper for the last 4 months! There is a lot of room (and a lot of stairs), but we think it's going to be perfect! 2 more months and we will get to see the completed models. 6 months (or less) and we will be in our new home!
Joining us in this next picture, is our cousin Josh... he turned 16 this past Thursday.
Happy Birthday!

Last but not least, we almost have a crawler! Here is Reese's new way of getting around. She use to just roll, but now she does the inch worm (that's what it looks like to me). She has started doing this to get around everywhere, but the computer is the one thing that really gets her going. She just wants to bang on the keys (I think she sees her Mommy on the computer too much)!

Reese is so excited that her new cousin is a girl because she gets to share all of her clothes that she grew out of way too fast!
Here's an example...
Avery seems to have a little more room in the hat than Reese did! :)

Update: Any day now Reese will be crawling for real. She has figured out how to go forward. She gets on her hands and knees, moves her legs forward but has not figured out how to do the same with her arms...

Now there is 3! Noah
Here's where out new house will be! The models are coming up quick. We get to pick out all the inside options this weekend and they should start building September 1st. How exciting. (Now we just have to finish packing up our place. We are out of there in 2 weeks... and off to Mom's. Mom and Carissa can't wait ;)

A Work Out Girl!

I get into crawling position, but I am not sure what to do next...

So, I do some planks and work my abs. I will be moving forward soon enough.

My cool Mom got me some clips for my hair!
(Maybe now I won't be mistaken for a boy!)
