My B00-Boo's Summer Fun Art Work

Let's say this is interesting! Were the eyes supposed to go on the sun? I assume they "glued" the items down where he put them? :) And I love that he has a cloud on his head!

18 months!!

Happy 18 Months Trace! You are officially a year and a half!

Wow! Times goes fast. Trace turned 18 months on June 23 -as well as the one year anniversary of my dad's death :( Above are some pictures of Trace in a camo onesie. I figured it being appropriate since my dad was the biggest hunter ever. He loved it and would hunt most things!

Trace-not sure how much you weigh, we will see at your appointment but last time you only weighed 23 lbs...let's hope more cause your sissy is catching up to you. (And mommy forgot to make your appointment so it's not til July 19th!!)

  • You are the sweetest and darnest thing. You love to take pillows and blankets and lay on them like you are going night night. You love to pull the blankets out of the bin in your room and do that. You love to give kisses and come hug us in the lap, on the leg, wherever.
  • You only really say yum yum, bye bye, hi, out (you think that is the dog's name!). You are talking your weird language and we are not sure what you are saying! :) You are repeating things and they sound like a weird alien language.
  • You love yogurt covered raisins (the newest addition) and grapes. However, this morning you threw ALL of your grapes on the floor. Over and over you get in trouble for that and you still do it! What am I going to do with you?
  • People think you are a girl all the time cause your hair is getting long in the back with curls! Someone said soccer hair...yep, you got the soccer hair!
  • You are into everything. Your latest is feeding your sister things she doesn't need (just this morning...LINT, as well as food you DON'T want!) and trying to open drawers and find the remote, cell phone, etc. Just last week you have decided you want to put your foot on the kitchen table!
  • Last night you were standing on my stomach and once you got balanced you were raising your hands above your head as if you were saying, "Look mom no hands!"
  • You are obsessed with lights and fans. If they are NOT on, you point until we turn them on! And your sound machine. Everything has to been on in your room...your two fans and the sound machine. It makes me laugh.

7 months-June 10th

Guess who was 7 months June 10? Yep, Evie Rose. Whewww....time goes fast.

First of all it wasn't too great of a day. You had a 102 fever and were shaking and breathing funny (so I thought) and threw I rushed you to the doctor. At the doctor's office your temp was 103.4! :( They ruled out many things cause the only symptom was a fever. Then they took blood. One vein popped so they had to do the other vein. YOU DID NOT LIKE IT ONE BIT. You screamed bloody murder the whole time. By the time I put you in your car seat, you were out. As of today, you are still having a fever but not as high. No idea why?!! They said viral but you have had a low grade temp for more than 10 days.

On a brighter note, these are some things you are doing:
  • screeching-I think big brother T taught you this.
  • loving some teething biscuits
  • sitting up
  • doing "splits" and getting stuck
  • doing gymnastics in your crib and so your paci goes across the room
  • loving T's toys...especially his driving wheel that plays music
  • loving Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (cause of your bro)
  • scooting all over the place
  • you were taking swim lessons but not sure we are going to finish those
  • getting a little "rooster" on the top of your head

Doing a split
Sweet baby girl
7 months

Making a big mess with that teething biscuit!!!!

We love you baby girl! :)

Highlands Photo Shoot

Memorial Day weekend we went to Highlands, NC. Can I just tell you how good it feels up there compared to this heat here? Anyway, we went for my cousin Heather's engagement "Summer Country Picnic". The food was sooo good (cooked by my great Aunt). I especially like the carrot cake bars. Deliciousness. And I forgot to take pictures DURING the party-um, taking care of two babies....but did have a little photo shoot with the T-man while everyone was setting up for the party.

11:00 Snack for T if he is still up. Sometimes Evie wants bottle
12:30ish Lunch for BOTH again. T-still baby food jar #3, yogurt, crackers,shredded cheese. He is the pickiest eater!
E-the fruit rice cereal and a yogurt.
4ish-snacks for all! Goldfish(not cheese one..T only likes the "sweet" kind). Or yogurt, yogurt covered raisins, ritz crackers, etc. I have been giving E puffs. She is not so sure about them!
