Anticipating Our Summer Vacation

We're very much looking forward to heading up to Alex tomorrow, for an entire week and a day!! We don't get to go to Alex very often with nothing on our plate.  That means LOTS of relaxation and nothingness, oh and the weather is suppose to be pretty much perfect!

Reid and I will also be heading to Fargo to celebrate the wedding of our good friends.  My mom has convinced me to leave Miss Libby with her, and of course Sally.  I'm excited to have two mornings without kids, but it's always hard to leave your child for the first time.  Hopefully we'll all do great!

I'm sure I'll have plenty to report and a handful of pictures when I stop on back on July 9!!!

Have a fabulous and safe 4th of July!

Did you know we have a doctor at our house??

Getting so big

She has now fully mastered rolling over.  She prefers to be on her tummy.  Her second tooth has come in.  She got to sit for part of her bath. She is starting to drink water from a sippy cup.  And her crib rail has to be raised up.  Where's my baby going?

Each night I snuggle a few extra seconds before placing her in her crib.  I know how quickly she's going to be transitioning into a bed...I know, I know, I'm getting ahead of myself. But seriously, where have these 6 months gone???

Loves her water!

Kickin' and a Kickin' because she's so happy and proud to be on her tummy
I came in to see her after her nap and her little {big} eyes were peeking out at me
Always so happy when she wakes up. But really, when isn't she happy?

Here's a random collection of pictures and a video

I taught Sally how to do the standing airplane the other day.  Did you ever do this as a kid?

We finally met up with the Shipman Family! It was so great to finally reconnect and catch up! Sally also enjoyed their dogs

and playing soccer

We didn't remember to get a picture of the kids until the end when they were ready for naps...this was the best we could do.  It was fun to see how great Sally and Henry played together!

Sally took this picture of Libby and I the other day, I think her finger was covering the flash :)

Sally started this funny thing in the car.  She always asks if her sunglasses go "this way or that way" and all of a sudden she started to sing it...

Stay cool out there in this HOT HOT heat!

New Sprinkler, New Outfits

We found a fun sprinkler on sale the other day.  It was a hit!

Libby has lots of people that love her and think of her often.  The first outfit is from Meggers, just because.  The second outfit is from Delores, just because.  We love them, just because :)

She's very close to sitting by herself.  She can for long stretches, but I didn't want to risk her falling and bonking her head while I took her picture :)

Matchy Match

Welcome home Nana & Grandpa!

Happy Birthday, Grandparoooni!! We love you and hope you have a splendid day!!

Our friend Annie has the same dress as Sally.  Since Annie has outgrown it, she's borrowed it to Libby, so the Craigmile sisters can be matchy match :)

For quite some time I've sang the girls "You Are My Sunshine" as part of their bedtime routine.  It was fun to see Libby's reaction, as she heard it many times while I was pregnant.  Sally loves to reverse the roles and sing it to me.  She is so sweet and sincere when she sings it, so I wanted to make sure I got it recorded before she doesn't think it's so cool to do anymore.

You'll notice we have an alternate ending and some of our own words in there, enjoy!

Picture Perfect Days

The picture perfect days are back and we're back to spending our days outside!

Libby had her 6 month check up earlier this week.  We've got a healthy and very proportional little lady!

Weight: 18lbs 8 oz-89%
Height: 27in-88%

Love this little lady! I can't get enough of her and her happiness!

So excited to be back at the park!

Always has so much to say! :) "oooooh boy oooooh boy, what a beautiful day!"

Thanks Tiff for the adorable shirt! You should give her some business cards to pass out.  Someone at the park told her they liked her shirt. "Thanks, I got it for my friend Izzy, you want one?"

Chasing bubbles!
Happy Friday, Happy Day, Happy Weekend!!

3 going on 13

I don't know if it's the hair cut, or the fact I know she's going to be starting school in the Fall.  Either way, my little girl is looking  older and older every day!

Silly Big Sister

This video doesn't last too long because Big Sister was wrapping up Little Sister's face too...although, Libby doesn't seem to mind :)

Libby gets the biggest laugh after Reid tells Sally to do a silly face at the end of one of her jumps! Girlfriend fits perfectly into this crazy family of ours :)

New 'Do

Here are a few pictures of Sally's new hair cut!

Bye Bye 4 inches!

Hello 6 year old!!

Looking back at old posts I realized I used to do a whole lot more videos, I'll try to improve on that! Here are a few from recently.

We read the same bedtime story to Libby each night.  Sally started reading it all by herself while I was cleaning up the bath stuff.  She didn't know I was recording. Don't mind her hiccups :)

Here are two of Miss Giggly pants!  She already knows what the camera is, so I have to try and sneak it in!

Happy 1/2 Birthday on Saturday Miss Libby!!

Happy Dad's Weekend!! We will be celebrating the main man in our life!!

Movin' on up

My little girl was promoted to a big girl seat at the dinner table.  We did a little rearranging with our table assignments :)

Change is good, but it is sad when we're already reaching these bigger milestones :(

Meghan is on summer break so she decided to come play with the Craigmile girls today! Thanks Meggers for making the trip, we loved having you!!

Libby loves her GodMama

Meghan bought a little bubble wand for was quite the hit!
Sally got her haircut today too, 4 inches cut off.  She looks adorable {well, even more adorable than she already did :)}! Pictures of her new 'do tomorrow!

Play Date at the Park

We met up with our ECFE friends at one of our gazillion local parks.  It was fun to see the kids interact and play so well together!

Girl talk

Sally and Henry

Swinging with Preston...Preston asked his mom to bring her camera so she could take a picture of he and Sally :)

Playing basketball and/or soccer with Siri
