I wanted to dump some memories of life lately - I love looking back at my posts and there have been some special memories I wanted to document!  It has been a fun couple of weeks around here.

We went to a baseball game with friends and these two are the best of friends!  Go Cardinals!!

We've been doing daily walks and they have been so nice!  We have met some neighbors too!

**please ignore the grainy-ness my photos have.  I am working on learning how to upload photos so this doesn't happen.  But it gives me a headache - so I'll learn more another day!

Every now and then, the girls will actually play together.  Well... Savannah always wants to play with big sister - so I should say every now and then Addison decides to play so sweetly with Savannah and it melts my heart!

We made pizzas for dinner with Grandpa and Addi loved it!  She ate just as many toppings as she put on!  Grandpa too :)  

We are so blessed!

February Four!

Remember this post - The Four Februarys?

Well those sweet babies are now 6 months old!

How adorable are they???

They actually all weren't born in February, but will always be remembered as the February Four.  They are in birth order - left to right and 3 weeks apart!  So. much. fun.  We are all so thankful they are all happy, healthy little girls!  And I think best friends forever already!

And some outtakes:

Parents are jumping, clapping, crazy.... in hopes for a smile.... this is what we got.  

Caption this one!  :)

Drama already?  

And this is the whole gang (minus 1).  Our group of kiddos went from 4 to 8.  After playing outside and popsicles - this was as good as we could get!

As I always say - we are blessed!  And not just Eric and I - but all the mommys and daddys of these cuties!

A Day in the Life

Life is flying by with two littles.  I wanted to take a moment to remember what these days were like.  Because I really can't remember these days when Addison was Savannah's age... and really, it wasn't that long ago!

Currently Savannah is 6 mo, and Addison is 2 years.

We have a great morning routine right now!  Addison gets up at 7 and we hold off Savannah's breakfast bottle till then.  Both girls and I cuddle up on Savannah's oversized rocker, Savannah gets her bottle and then we read some books.  I get the girls dressed then we head downstairs for Addison's breakfast and Savannah's solid breakfast.  We then head out for a morning walk with our dog, Ellie.

Savannah takes a nap while Addi and I get some one on one time.  Most days we try and get out in the morning.  Whether it's playing outside, story time, the store, or play date.  Our current favorites are signing time at a local library, story time at Barnes and Noble or the library, or play dates!  Getting out with two in tow has gotten easier.  Savannah is pretty good at sitting with Addi or sitting in the cart!  Much easier than lugging around her in the carseat.  Addison does a great job staying close to me and holding my hand.  She climbs in Savannah's side of the jeep and gets herself into her seat for me to come and buckle her in.

We usually eat lunch at home.  Savannah's on a pretty good breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime bottle schedule.  She is eating solids now and can't get enough of it!  Thankfully I am getting the girls both down for naps around 1:00 and it's been wonderful!  I work on etsy sales, do some housework, or take some downtime!

After naps is usually filled with some more playing and a snack.  Addison has loved pretend playing or talking Savannah's ear off.  Savannah is crawling and gets up to her knees on everything - so she loves trying to keep up with her sister.  Watching these two interact has been so cute.  They are going to be best of friends!  (Or at least I hope so!)

Once daddy gets home it seems to be craziness until bedtime!  Daddy is our chef (love him for that) so he cooks while I entertain the girls and we catch up on our days.  We all eat dinner then try to play together as a family or squeeze in a walk or errand.  Then bedtime for Savannah at 7 and Addi by 7:30!    

We are so blessed!
