April 6 my baby turned 7.
It is beyond me how she grew so much so quickly. It seems like just yesterday she was in my arms... but now she is seven. 


There are so many things I love about this sweet girl. I could go on and on. 
She is pretty quiet and somewhat shy but she takes everything in and never ever forgets.
She is adventurous and loves being outside. 
She goes and goes all day. I always ask her if she is tired but she never is. Until bedtime... then she reads her story and crashes.
She is just about the best big sister you have ever seen. She takes great care of henry and Annie. She is very patient and motherly. I tell her she will be a great mommy someday and she tells me she isn't having kids. 
She is getting to be a very good reader. She has come such a long way this year. And she has worked so hard. I asked her her favorite thing to do and she said "'take AR test"
She loves to go and do and always wants to know what we will be doing each day. 

I love this sweet girl so much that sometimes I feel like my heart could burst. I am so proud of her and I love watching her grow and change. 

7 months

Even though this post is a month late... Henry turned 7 months on the 25th of March.
Things have been so busy and he has grown so much so fast... and I know I say this very often but I really cannot believe that he is getting so grown up.

He is a big boy and is very very busy. He is always moving and squirming. He loves exploring and checking out things. He also loves being held and playing with his sisters. 

While we were in Florida we spent a day at the beach. This was his first time at the beach. He really did like it. He loved the sand and loved eating the sand just like his sister Ellie. He like the way it felt in his hands because he would just grab it up and squeeze it and stare at it. 

He is so wild but is so sweet at the same time. He loves to play on the ground but he wants to make sure you are right by his side. He loves to read  books and he eat them too.
At 7 months he has one tooth. It is so sweet to see him smile and see that little tooth poking out


Here are some things we want to remember about you at 7 months

* your  sweet happy smile. I have loved it since I first saw it and it still makes my heart so happy
*the sweet way you "sing " yourself to sleep. We love that sound. 
* how you love your sisters. You like to make sure they include you in their fun.
*how much you love swinging at the park. It makes you smile and giggle. 
* how you say mamamam...those words are just the sweetest to me.

Sweet Henry... we love you so

sunshine ahead

Since looking at the forecast for next week in Orlando we have been on a search summertime clothes. 

We went hat hunting for Henry...

We decided on the second one because I thought it would work better covering his ears 

We also stocked up on sunscreen and flip flops 😀

Today was a good day...
Not so busy and rushed.

Marty and I went to eat breakfast
Then Ellie had her second soccer game 

Annie got to play with her friend 

We had a cousin tag along all day

And we ended the day with hot dogs and s'mores for supper 

This time next week we will be headed to a Disney trip!!! We are excited and ready to go!!!

guess who

I love looking at old picture of the kids and I also love trying to decide which or looks like who...

So when a old picture shows up on Facebook I have to do a side by side and see how much they look alike...

On the left is Annie and the right is Henry. I would say they could pretty much be twins except for their eyes.
