Summer 2011

So this summer has been eventful. We moved from Tucson and were living with family for a few months and just last month we moved again into a cute house with room enough for our almost 3 kids. Living with family was great but I knew we needed our own space before this little girl gets here! The summer has treated us great so far. We have been swimming a lot and little miss can just about swim solo. Her favorite is to jump off diving boards and swim to the side. For some reason though she does a belly flop 9 out of 10 times. We have just about 4 weeks until we welcome our new baby girl into the family! We are so excited to meet her. Reed has grown into really liking little babies so I'm excited to see how he does with a little sister. We are just about settled in but I have a few more finishing touches I would like to add to baby girls room as well as pictures that need to be put in frames. Some highlights of this summer include Reed turning two.... him and I share a birthday month and we had fun celebrating with family and making him a choo choo train cake.....

 this little guy is such a character and such a joy to have in our home (when he's in a good mood). He loves animals and making animal noises. He is a late bloomer when it comes to talking but he will call for momma, dadda, poppy (grandpa), doggy, book, drink, snack, cookie, duck, and plane are the words he says most..... He loves wrestling his dad, cousins, uncles, or grandpas and loves the water and swimming.

 little miss Elizabeth had a dance recital over the summer and did great! She is such a doll and turning into my little buddy. She is so helpful and really is a sweet heart. She is so excited to have a sister and tries to help us get ready for her to come in any way she can!
Like I said I have a few things to add to the nursery but here is a picture of her crib and bedding..... I made the bed skirt and the bumper was from Elizabeth as a baby. 


 Elizabeths room is just about done as well. I want to dark purple tutu to add about her bed but other then that its good. I made her duvet cover..... it is straight but the bed was made crooked this morning :) She is in love with purple so with the move now was the time to change it!

Hopefully I can write more frequently before the baby comes and get in a better habit of posting!
