I love these people!




Thanks for letting me eat, Jack. You need a little princess in your house!

Our growing group! (Elyse and I are trying not to drop anyone!)


Sunday, we got together with some of our best friends to share in a special baptism. We had a lovely lunch afterwards at their house. Thank you for letting us share in a special day!

3 Months Old



Hard to believe Shelby is 3 months old today. Her sweet personality is really coming out. She loves to be on the go and watching her big sister. Here are some milestones in the past 3 months:

~wears size 2 diapers

~wears mostly 3 month clothes and some 3-6 month

~she has discovered her fist and enjoys sucking on it

~still not the best sleeper at night :) usually getting up between 10pm-12am and again 2am-3am

~has been taking the bottle much better

~she really loves Mommy

~she smiles very easily if you talk to her in a sweet voice

~she likes to be carried on your hip, facing outwards so she can see

~she likes her swing with the mobile on

~she doesn't like tummy time

~she has rolled over once from front to back

~she still loves her bath

~I would think she almost weighs 13lbs

~she is very snugly

~she has started to coo in a sweet little voice

~people still comment on her hair but we have now added comments on her cheeks and legs


We love our sweet baby, but she is growing too fast!

Happy Father's Day!

I have known Bucky since he was 18 years old. We have both grown a lot. Over the years, he has become an amazing husband and father. He loves us very much and makes it a point to tell all 3 of us everyday. I am very thankful our daughters have a strong man to look to as their father.


Some things I admire about Bucky as father/husband:

~he is a hard worker

~he loves to laugh and make people laugh

~he is honest and faithful

~he is level-headed

~he is patient and kind

~his love for me, Claire, and Shelby is unwavering

~he is predictable (wearing Wranglers and a plaid shirt every day since I have known him!)

~he is easy to please

~he always knows what I am thinking

~he is not afraid to wear a pink hair bow and have a tea party

~he makes beautiful daughters

~he steps up as a parent when I am ready to back down

~he always does what is best for our family

~he loves with whole heart


Happy Father's Day, Bucky! We love you very much!

Do you think they look alike?



Here are the girls both around 2 months old. What do you think? I think Shelby is starting to look more like Claire as a baby. Who knows! It is so hard to tell with babies!

Shelby's 2 month check-up

Shelby had her 2 month check up last week. She was actually 9 and 1/2 weeks old on the day of her appointment. She is growing quickly (just like Claire) and hitting all her developmental milestones. Dr. Greer loves her almost as much as he loves seeing Claire! We did not get a very good 2 month picture. Shelby wasn't too sure of sitting in the chair by herself. So, I tried to get one after bath when she is happy. It turned out a little better, but she was sleepy and needed her passie.
