Oh the joys....

...of having a big sister.
These are the pictures I find on my phone & on my ipod. Piper thinks she is so funny! I guess she is but Paxton probably will not think so when he gets older ;)

But she loves her brother so much & he loves her!

Paxton has been trying to stand up on things for a while now & the past week he has started pulling up. My little man is getting so strong!

Swim time!

We had our first family swim on Monday. What fun! Paxton loves the water & just splashes like crazy! Piper is jumping off the side! She is still a little timid but doing great!

We came home & Piper just crashed!!

Sweet summer night

Saturday night we roasted hotdogs, made smores & chased lightening bugs. We all had so much fun this night! We will do some lightning bug chasing more this summer. What a great night!!

Swim lessons

Piper LOVED swim lessons. She is so timid in the water. She went from not wanting water to touch her face to going under holding her nose & leaving the top of her head dry to going under without holding her nose. She improved everyday & I love seeing how she was determined to learn. 
She had lessons with two other girls who were little fish!
 The 1st 2 days Piper would circle the whole pool. Had to get use to her surroundings I guess.
Pax hangin out during sister's lessons.

 Going under holding her nose the 2nd day. Huge accomplishment.
practicing on the rocket
 The 1st day she went down the slide 2 times like this & they had to promise they wouldn't let her go under. The next 2 days she just didn't want to go down it.

 Trying to swim under water! YAY!
This is so funny! She would not go down alone. She went a little fast here & thought mrs. LaDonna didn't have her.

 Making her pizza's with a float on.

Mrs. LaDonna also taught her to tread water. 
She improved so much this week. I think this was a good year to start her in lessons. Now to just continue on with what she's learned.

9 months old

Yep, this big boy is already 9 months old! 
He doesn't pull up yet but he LOVES to stand! Has pulled up once though.
He wants to be on the ground going... All the time!! He is into everything, puts everything in his mouth & if he is going somewhere he is not suppose to be going, you say his name & act like you are going after him he laughs & goes faster. Stinker!
Sleeps from 8-between 7 & 8.
Has been fake coughing & laughing. So stinkin cute.
He has been kicking his feet & throwing a fit some. He will just slam his face on the ground if he is mad while on his belly. 
Has 2 teeth! YAY! They came in two days apart.
Saying "mama" now! WOO HOO!
He still army crawls but he is good at going from his bottom to crawling & from crawling back to his bottom. He has regular crawled a few times. 
Can wave hi & bye. Says hi. 
If you take something away from him (something he shouldn't have) it makes him SO mad!! 
If you put him in front of the mirror he will wave hi & when you get him up in the mornings he waves hi to you. 

This boy is 18 lbs 12 oz (25%), & 30 1/2 in (off the chart). Tall & skinny & Dr. Whitaker said his head was up there too. HA! I figured! I have big headed kids.
(Piper was 22 lbs ll oz & 30 in.)
I love seeing the differences in my kids. So precious!!
