1st Day of School

Brooke had her 1st day of school last week and loved it! She is going to the same school that she was at last year but is in a different class with a new teacher. She is loving the new room and her new teacher. She is going 2 days a week and was in the best mood both days I picked her up. When I picked her up the 1st day she said "Mommy, I love my big school!!" . It makes me so happy to see her so excited about going. The teacher has told me how much she enjoys their art projects, blocks, puzzles, and looking at books. Those are her favorites things to do at our house too. She can get so into a project and it just amazes me to see her level of focus at this age. My big girl...she makes me so proud everyday.
Lisa, Devin, and the kids came in town last weekend. We always have such a great time with them! We had an early birthday celebration for Nana where the kids made cupcakes and sang happy birthday! Presley and her wild hair!
Singing to Nana!
Yummy ice cream!

All Girl....

Besides for my Dad, I grew up in a house of all girls (my Mom, sis, and dog!) so I should be used to life with girls. It has been so much fun for me to watch Brooke grow up and becoming such a girly girl! She has naturally migrated to loving all things frilly (princess dress-up, makeup, nails and toes being painted, bows, dresses, crowns, you name it...). She is loving to dance and constantly wants us to put on music so she can show us her ballet moves. I think dance classes are in her near future. I think she would love them!! I walked into the family room and she had my lip gloss out and had done her "makeup"!

She and Melaina playing dress up.
Me and my girls "cuddling up" Brooke always says. Every time she has anything to drink she always ask me or Scott to "cuddle up" with her. I love it!

Happy 1 Month Birthday, Presley!!

Our little girl turned 1 month on August 4th! It is so crazy how fast time flies. In some ways I cannot remember life without her but in other ways it seems as though she just arrived. What a wonderful month it has been getting to know this beautiful little being. Before bed last night I was on the couch feeding Presley and Brooke was cuddled up next to me with her head on me and I felt like the luckiest person in the world. To have these 2 little angels in my life is such a blessing. My life is complete.

We had P's 1 month checkup on the 4th and here is where she is measuring:
Weight- 8 lbs 14 ounces (40% percentile)
Height- 22 inches (83% percentile) - Maybe she will be tall!!!
Head- 14.37 inches (36% percentile)

Happy 1 month my love!! Daddy, Brooke, and I love you SO much!

Life since July 4th...

We are back in the swing of things around here. I'm not saying we're not sleep deprived but we're back to a somewhat normal schedule! Brooke has been playing lots with Nana and kids in the neighborhood. She is loving to play hide and go seek and just doing anything outside. Presley is doing great and doing what she does best....eating and sleeping!! Here are some pictures of what the past month has looked like around here! Brooke heading to Nana's house to play. She wanted to wear her "tutu" dress so she could wear Nana's crown when she got there!
Aunt Judy and Uncle Kurt came to visit!
Mama Suz and Presley hanging out!
Trying to get some pictures with Mama was pretty comical trying to get a picture with her and both girls!
Got it!
