Back with another photo recap of what we were up to in June! If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen a lot of these already, but I’ll re-post some to have them all here.
The best we could do for a family photo – this was going out to dinner for Matt’s birthday.
The kids’ end of the table (minus sweet Avery who was on the other side.) All 5 kids there were girls!
Katie & Eric came up to visit us (and attend a wedding). It honestly makes me a little sad when they visit because I’m reminded of all the good times we’re missing out on living in different cities. As you can tell, Harper loved having her aunt Katie to snuggle with. And the girls couldn’t ask for a better uncle than they have in Eric. I think he’s ready for some kids of his own… ;)
Hadley had fun outside with her water table & finger paints, and little sister Harper enjoyed some time in the bumbo. :)
I went to put Harper down for her nap one day and came back to “Shhhhhh! I putting baby night-night momma! And reading her a book!” “Oooh. Baby what’s wrong? You cwyin? I here! Is otay baby!! You need a paci? I get it baby – here go! I wuv you baby… have sweet dweams! You nice & cozy baby?”
She is such a little mama.
More play date fun with friends…
Sweet little Avery was so funny! She was a little wrestler and kept climbing all over Hadley. Hadley was cracking up at “baby Avery!” (And yes, she’s still in diapers. Don’t judge.)
Hadley started swim lessons this month! She was a little timid her first lesson and held back tears most of the second lesson, but she’s getting better each time, so I know they’ll be worth it!
“Aunt” Courtney asked if she could come to swim lessons – of course Hadley was THRILLED to have an audience and Harper was happy to have an extra set of hands to hold her! ;)
In an effort to get some more sleep, I caved and bought “Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit” and it was worth every penny. Not sure how we’ll transition out of this, but Harper is finally out of the swaddle and in her own room, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. For now, I’m just happy for the better sleep we’re getting.
We had a fun night at the Walther’s house – the littles sat in their seats and smiled at each other, the big girls swam in the pool, and the adults enjoyed good food and conversation!
Nana & Poppy came up and turned our backyard into a mini water park. Hadley had a blast splashing with them!
We also went to the Dallas Zoo in June, but because this post is long enough, I’ll save that for a separate post!
