This is not the first time I've found one of these and I'm sure it's not going to be the last. Thankfully if you let them dry out all the way they still work.

Blake's ready for some summer fun. Josh and Blake are building a robot along with Josh's dad and we also will be making some rockets and a volcano. It feels so nice to be on a relaxed schedule now.

3. Learn to spell in the sand.
9. Nap a little more.
10. Learn a new trick.
11. Contemplate on what to do next.
12. Eat a couple of Popsicle's.
13. Wish we could always have an extra day in the weekend!

Liah liked lining up all the plants on the front porch before we planted them.
We planted tomatoes, lettuce and spinach, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, zucchini, peas, carrots(Liah insisted on these even though I'm not expecting them to grow that great but I'm hoping to be surprised), and some herbs. Here Liah is "dumping" her carrot seeds in. I tried to spread them around but we'll see.
Here is the finished product. I also did quite a bit of landscaping and planting of flowers today. Of course there is still a ton to do but all in all it was a very successful day.

I can't believe that in 8 weeks you have changed so much. You don't have that newborn look anymore. You are starting to want to look at everything which means you always want to be awake. You seem a little too young to be fighting sleep already. You have just started to try to grab at things. You love to cuddle and your favorite way to sleep is cuddled up to somebody. You still have your dark hair which we're wondering if it's here to stay. You love your big brother and sister and always smile when you hear their voices.

Now while I love the season of life we're in right now, I also realized how different it is to go to wedding....with kids. We just took Liah and Hannah. Through the ceremony both were great. The reception was where I noticed this new epiphany. I had to feed Hannah in the car since I couldn't find a private spot to nurse and then later on had to change a diaper on the bathroom floor. Liah started to get tired about an hour into it. While we still had a great time it was one of those days where you can just feel how much work goes into taking care of kids. Thankfully I was not the only one. I watched my friend Danielle put her youngest in time out on the stairs in the middle of the reception hall while waiting in line for appetizers.
I did have a great time though and got to talk with friends I don't get to see that often.
So again I congratulate Bryanne and Jordan and pray that the Lord blesses their marriage more than they ever thought possible.
Note: I did bring my camera but forgot to take pictures. I think I got one of Liah eating a grape. Not quite sure why.:)

So needless to say Tuesday morning did not go smoothly. There was one point I had Liah crying about her hair, Blake was screaming there was an ant in the house (Blake has this new phobia of bugs in the house due to a reoccurring dream), Hannah was screaming because she was hungry, and my phone was ringing off the hook since the playground I had scheduled for our Moms Group outing was closed. I thought I was going to go crazy.
That afternoon made up for it though. Liah took a good long nap and Hannah joined her in their room for the first time in her crib. I actually never intended for Hannah to sleep in her crib but I put her down while I tucked Liah in and by the time I was done Hannah was out as well.
While the girls took a nap and Blake read I had a chance to talk with a friend on the phone and catch up. I was suppose to be taking a nap as well but sometimes talking with a friend can be more rejuvenating than a nap.

The closet was one of my organizing obsessions when I was nesting during those last couple of months of my pregnancy.
Liah loves the labels on the bins. She now knows where everything goes.

I did manage to get some good pics. and also God gave me that great reminder that kids will be kids and I just need to enjoy that.
