Wonder Woman and a 4 Year Old

And just like that I have a 4 year old. Seriously. Not possible. Man that went by fast. Looking through her baby photos and I feel like that was yesterday. #timeslowdown


To properly honor our 4 year old Molly we went all out on an awesome and fun Wonder Woman birthday party. She also decided she wanted to be Wonder Woman for Halloween so we got lots of use out of our costume.

Once again with the help of my bestie Laura and her amazing crafting skills we found some things on Pinterest that we liked and then put our own spin on it and put together some really incredible DIY decorations that really set the party apart.

We also had the neatest sign (card) out in our front yard to surprise Molly when she woke up. These are seriously the coolest. The picture does not due it justice...such a fun and oversized way of celebrating. Thanks Card My Yard!

Yep! That is Molly's face on her cupcakes. She had a very specific request for her face to be included.

True to tradition we had a bounce house for all the kids to get their energy out and have a good time. The grown ups were enjoying themselves too. And lots of superheroes came!

Everyone had a really good time and Molly had a blast with her friends and family. Another birthday party in the books!

Happy Birthday sweet girl! We love you like crazy and even though you challenge us sometimes we could not imagine living a life without you in it! It has been so fun to watch you grow and we look forward to the year ahead! xoxoxo

Ellie: 7 Months

The days and months are starting to move so fast now! I am to the point where I really do want it to slow down a bit. Those first months feel like years but now I blink and a week has passed and Ellie is growing and changing right along with it. So here we are at 7 months (really 7.5 now) and she is getting so big and has become so much fun! 

2015-10-06 13.32.30

around 19lbs (total guess)
Wearing size 3 diapers during the day and size 4 at night
Wearing 6-9 mo clothes and some 9-12 mo

Eating - she has really started getting the eating thing down and is enjoying it
Attemping to crawl - this past month she is rocking back on all fours and is really trying hard to figure out how to move.
Swinging - she will smile and giggle anytime you put her in the swing. She also loves being outside.
Anybody who will smile at her - she is seriously the easiest baby to make smile. You just have to give her a little grin and her face just explodes into a smile.

Not being able to crawl (trying so so hard)
Not getting her naps
Being held when she wants to move

Rocking on all fours
Rolling all over the place
Swinging on the park swing
Eating and drinking water
Trip to the State Fair
First trip to the pumpkin patch
Got Baptized!

Naps are hit or miss...we have had too many 1 nap days lately. Sleep at night is the same, she still wakes up 1x per night. We are planning to "cry it out" this month sometime which is the same time we did with Molly.

Ellie Baby! You are such a joy to be around and your happy energy rubs off on everybody around you. Your smile lights up the room and I cherish the evenings when I get to snuggle you to sleep. You are the perfect addition to our family and we love you so much!
