11 months.

I can't believe we're t-minus a month until the big 1 year. So very crazy our baby girl is going to be 1 so soon. FASTEST.YEAR.EVER.  Some of Emmie's 11 month updates.... she has 10 teeth, finally says mama and has a handful of other words, is as sweet as can be and is also a little sassy pants, she's been told "no" twice and it devastates her, fake laughs when other people laugh which then usually turns into a real laugh cause she thinks it's funny, loves eating real food (and eats a ton), all she wants to do is pull up and stand, is walking around furniture, loves playing with her bros, no longer wants to keep her headbands on (sad), gets so excited when she sees her sippy cup and can disappear in the blink of an eye.

4 year stats.

Bennett had his 4 year check-up last month and our boy checked out just fine and is a healthy and very large 4 year old (praise Jesus for his good health) In fact, his pediatrician said he's the size of an average 6 year old.

4 year stats:
height: 3' 8.5" (98%)
weight: 47 lbs 3.2 oz (98%)

Our camping adventure.

After a year break since I was about to pop last summer, we made it back down to the Oregon coast for some family camping fun with the whole family. The kids had so much fun, exploring the beach, biking, roasting smores and playing with their cousins. And thankfully our little lady was a camping trooper. Definitely, a lot of work camping with three littles, but worth the memories made.

10 months.

We're on the less than two month countdown to a year, crazy! Baby girl so very fun at this age. Full of life, crazy happy, a bit sassy, wiggles/shakes/moves all the time, starts bouncing at the slightest sound of music, is finally starting to pull up on things, LOVES eating and ever since getting back from Bend only eats real food, loves grilled cheese sandwiches just like momma, naps and sleeps like a champion (hallelujah!), her new words are "hi" which is always accompanied by the cutest wave, and "ni-ni"(aka night-night) that she says over and over when she gets tired or is getting ready for bed, she goes to bed between 6:30-7 and turns into a bit of a troll any later than that, is an awesome road-tripper, loves our dogs but is terrified of all other dogs, she puts everything in her mouth which is a bit of a challenge with 2 older sibs, loves being in someone's arms, is in the best mood when she wakes up in the morning and looks around for her brothers the second she wakes up.


The other little lady of the house celebrated her 9th birthday on July 12. And our little senior citizen had a great time at her "party" and as always, loved her birthday cheeseburger.
