9 months old!




Abby is now 9 months old.....and big news this week...She finally started scooting backwards....so hopefully she will be crawling soon.  I'm personally in no rush, I like it that she stays in one place! :)

Swim Time


We have been living in the water lately....with 100+ heat for the past 28 days and no end in site, it is the only out door activity that will keep us cool!  The girls love their backyard pool!


They also are doing swim lessons together and doing great!  Gracie is becoming quite a little fish, but Emma still gets scared.  She will put her face in the water, but won't go where she can't touch, even with her life vest on...

Gracie and Emma's friends Kylie and Korbin are here visiting their grandparents from Alaska, and we have had a great time playing with them.  The girls love sliding into their pool.  Emma kept saying, "This is the best day ever!"  Kaleb and Kacie have been house sitting this week, with an awesome pool and we have already been twice.  We usually don't even start swimming until about 7 pm because its soooo hot outside, but the girls have loved it!

Abigail Faith is 8 months old!!




Abby is developing a darling personality the last few months....She loves to laugh at her big sisters...Abby is playing more with her toys.....She is FINALLY sitting up on her own ( I blame grandparents for holding her ALL THE TIME! ).....She loves to eat baby food, loves everything, especially yogurt melts and puffs!......Abby still likes to be held, and knows how to turn the crying on, and once you pick her up, she suddenly stops.....Abby does not like her carseat, but loves to ride in the stroller and go places....The carseat is making me nervous about our upcoming 24 hour car trip back to NC!  Abby has light brown hair, and beautiful big gray eyes....they are not blue or brown, but the prettiest shade of light gray....I love them and hope they don't change!

Happy 4th of July!


We had a fabulous fourth of July hanging out with family and friends!  Trinity had a family fun night with inflatables, face painting, hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones ( I LOVE snow cones ) and more and we watched the fire works from the parking lot!  The girls had a blast, too bad my mom had to stay home with Abby because she was sick... :(


We went to Heather's grandparents, who live on a 100 acre farm, to fish and have a cookout, and the kiddos had a blast!  Gracie caught the first fish!

Emma loved canoeing with her Papa!

My sweet little ladies....we sure do miss Daddy though!

Sisters and best friends....
