beach club

so the cool think about the development we live in is that they have a private beach club for all the residents to go to.  we weren't sure what to expect when we heard about it, but we figured it's only about 5 minutes from our house, so we would check it out.  but uhhhh, yeah, this is pretty awesome!

this was little miss' first experience with a large body of water too! she loved it.  was a little cold at first, but we all got used to it.  we even went underwater once and she did great. we're going to keep at that so she's an old pro in the water.

so the beach club is basically a sandy beach surrounding a pool that is no deeper than 4 feet or so in the middle.  there is a great splashpad next to the big pool beach part, plenty of chairs along the perimeter, and even little picnic pavillions that would be great for parties or if you were planning on staying all day.  what we also found out is you can bring canned beer and drink it there too! jackpot!

so we may not have a pool in our backyard...but we have a beach!

tummy time and brother love

i still can't get over how much this guy loves his baby sister.  he always wants to be close to her and helping her do something, even if it is just hanging out!

but oh wait...who started holding their head up high for longer periods of time!
big girl!!!

father's day fun

happy father's day (and happy belated anniversary to tim and andrea)!!!
the gang will be heading back home later this afternoon, so i thought why not try to wear the kids out for them.  so off to the splashpad we go!  oh my gosh, perfect weather!!  the kids had a blast, and we enjoyed relaxing and taking in the cool breeze.

to top things off, we wanted to take everyone to three stacks to get filled up to the brim with bbq! oh...and we did!!  it was delicious as usual.  

after lunch we said see you soon!!

they've arrived!!!

not long after we got home from the birthday party did the whole gang arrive.  we were so excited they were here!!

i think someone has an uncle time fan!  ;)

since it had been a long day for everyone, we decided to lay low tonight, bbq, and enjoy a couple drinks together!  cheers to the texas two year plan taking less than expected!!!


uncle time, aunt andrea, cousin mason and cousin olivia are coming over to our house today.  someone was VERY excited this morning and wanted to sit and wait for them to get here.  hmmmm, it's going to be a little bit buddy.  luckily we have liam's birthday party to go to before the gang gets here!

three months

my how you are growing little lady!
three months!!

 we have to wait until our 4 month visit for measurements, but you are definitely growing!
 still wearing size 1 diapers
 still wearing 3 month clothes
you never miss a meal and eat about every 2-3 hours during the day
you're not sleeping through the night yet, but can get 3-4 hour stretches out of you most nights
i'm still doing the no dairy thing and you seem much better
you can sit up propped up pretty well on your own, but not for very long
 celebrated our first mothers day as mother and daughter!
really starting to laugh in response to things now
started going to school!  
started chewing on toys more, no teeth yet thank goodness
survived your first move into our new house. what a day!

first day of school

oh my little miss is starting school today!  part of me is happy because i have a feeling she's going to love school just as much as graham, and the socialization will be good for her.  and then part of me is so sad because it's proof that she's growing up...too fast!!

we've met hannah's teachers before today, and just like kindercare, they are awesome.  and everyone seems to be in love with her already! from what we hear, there hasn't been a little little girl in the nursery for awhile.

i know someone who is happy that baby hannah is starting school.  yup...graham!  the nursery is right diagonally across from his room, and he's able to go and see her if he's feeling like he needs some hannah time. 

but one thing that i haven't gotten used to yet, that i'm guessing will take awhile, is the 530 wake up call!  yikes...this is very early!  coffee is going to be my friend i see! but in order to get hannah and graham up and fed, pump, eat breakfast myself, drop the kids off at school by 715 and then home by 730 to log into work (yup...i'm back to work!)...530 it is!  here's to hoping it gets easier!
