2 Months!

 So, I am a week late on this post, but happy 2 months Addilyn Grace!  I can't believe she is already 2 months old.... where has time gone?  It seems that the days FLY by! 

Addilyn at 2 months....
* you weigh 11lbs 8oz (57%)  and are 22.75" (65%) tall.   You are exactly 2 POUNDS lighter than Ty was at 2 months.... he must've been a big boy because even you have some cute rolls :)
* you wear size 1 diapers but you are finally big enough to start wearing the cloth diapers.  You will have to make do with lots of blues/green covers from Ty :)
* you sleep from about 8:30 - 4:30/5, and once you did 9-6:30
* you take a small half hour nap in the morning, a long 3 hour nap in the afternoon, and another 1-2 half hour naps in the evening. 
* you still have your hernia, and I actually think it is getting smaller! Slowly.....
* you are starting to enjoy your bouncer and swing and will sit and stare at the animals that hang, you especially seem to like the elephant!
* you still LOVE to be on the move and would prefer to have people walking/bouncing around instead of sitting while holding you
* you have the cutest little gummy smile, and it melts my heart when I see it, especially when you smile at Ty being silly with you
* you don't like to be cuddled when you are up, you like to be facing out so you can see the action
* you are beginning to get the hang of a pacifier but we still pretty much have to hold it in your mouth for you
* you love being outside, and when you are fussy, we step outside and within seconds you seem to calm down

Here are some pictures at 2 months :)

This picture was taken for a Father's Day gift and all of us held signs with why we love Daddy...

Happy 2 Months Addi Grace!

Backyard Project


We finally finished our little backyard project for Ty!  We wanted to make our backyard more "appealing" for Ty since we seem to always be stuck playing in our driveway. We had a playset downstairs that we thought would be fun to bring outside, and I also wanted to build a sandbox for Ty.  So, we decided to combine them.  To make our life less work, we decided to take out some of the landscape (so we don't have to do it anymore... haha) and place it next to the house. Here is how it turned out!


Almost all the landscape out..

Nate working away.

Ty loves helping Daddy

Doesn't he look so cute pushing his little wheelbarrel?

Sand..... check!

Play set and toys.... check!

Final look!  The other space will be my garden next year :)

Play time!!


Yay for summer projects!

Beach Week!



 We were SO excited to spend a week at the beach!


 First evening the Slagh Family joined us!  

Addi and Camryn at 2 months


Ty and Taylor





Tuesday was a day just for us :)
Addi in her new suit

Getting ready to go in the water. Ty looks scared but he just doesn't like to look at the camera... he LOVED the water


Getting some sun (well with Addi in Daddy's shade haha)

Wednesday was a play day with my friend Jess, Amy, and her daughter Ryley
What better way to nap than on the beach


Amy and Ryley

Jess and Amy with the kiddos in the water
This became one of Ty's favorite parts of the day... outdoor showers! He would ask for them and would not want to get out!
We have a couple more days to enjoy the beach, then back to reality...

Slip n' Slide

What better way to spend a hot day than learning how to go down the slip n' slide!! Ty was a little unsure at first, but after mommy and daddy went down he was ready to give it a try!  Just ignore his missing swimsuit, he decided to just sport the diaper today :)
Helping him down the slide

SPLASH!
Nate taking down the whole slide... haha
Addi and Maggie watching the fun...
a good drink from the hose


I have a feeling we'll be taking this out a whole lot more this summer!

Relaxing Sunday....

 Just a few pictures of relaxing outside today in the beautiful weather!
Ty playing his own version of croquet
Addi relaxing in the bouncer outside...

Nothing better than a popsicle on a 90 degree day!


LOVE CROQUET :)
This was as close as I could get to a shot of the two kids...

 SO excited to spend many more days outside with Nate, Ty, and Addi!
