Nora 3 months

Our sweet little chunk is 3 months old already! With a quarter of a year under her belt, she LOVES smiling, talking babytalk loudly, and rolling all over the place (both ways). She even likes laying on her belly. She loves watching the fishies in the fish tank, and seeing what her big sis is up to. 

During our photoshoot this morning, Lucy was not to be outdone and insisted she got a picture too. So here, she is 2.5 years (34 months for those keeping track).

Likes: The color blue, Disney Princesses, helping fetch mommy diapers, turning on Nora's sound machine, reading books, swimming at the pool, and pretending she is a mommy with her babydoll. 

After Lucy's turn in the picture chair, she stole my phone to snap a pic of her baby. {I have no idea how old baby is.}

I'm really liking the angle of her shot.

Rainbow muffins

Lucy is recently fascinated with all things rainbow. We color rainbows with sidewalk chalk, markers, you name it, it becomes a rainbow. 

So one day this week when making her some pre-mixed muffins, we decided to rainbow them up.

She loves to help me bake. {Sorry dear, mom is not the greatest baker.} But I sure can mix milk into apple cinnamon muffin mix.

After mixing our muffins up, I let Lucy drop different color drops into each muffin cup. She got to pick the colors we were making, and then mix them up with a straw. (Toothpicks would work too!)

Then we followed the directions on the package for baking them.

It may be blurry but I managed to catch her reaction when I pulled them out of the oven. 

Just a teeny bit "cited".

The hardest part of the whole process? Trying to convince a 2.5 year old that she couldn't eat ALL of the muffins we made right now.

fathers day weekend

Fathers Day weekend 2015 was spent trying to beat this crazy heat wave at the pool, and hanging with family, and snuggling with our very favorite man in the house. 

See our Fathers Day 2014 here.

Nora 2 months

This sweet girl is 2 months old! 

I was much more timely with Lucy's monthly posts, and I attribute that
to staying home on maternity leave longer with Lucy and only having one baby to raise... give me grace y'all. #secondchildproblems. 

Nora loves going for walks, being cuddled, and staring/talking whale to her baby sister. 

Doesn't like: laying on her tummy (she for real just lays there and then cries), being in a room by herself (must have an audience present), or being awake/fed/put to sleep during the hours of 7-8pm. 

She is so easy going and happy most days and we just adore her! 

People say often how much her and Lucy look alike. (Their personalities are already so different!) 

Here is a side by side pic of her and Lucy both at 2 months old:

We are getting closer to sleeping through the night, which makes for a happy baby and momma...we can't wait to see what the next month brings! 

"Lucy, open your eyes so I can get a picture..." Nope. 





sweet summertime

While I know it's not officially summer yet, the temps are in the 80s and 90s so it counts for me. 

I've been wanting to make a "summer bucket list" but let's be honest my littlest is still not sleeping through the night (and neither am I) so we are practically living at the pool. 

Nora does a lot of snoozing while Lucy does a lot of fearless pool-jumping. 

We've also gotten spoiled enough to spend a lot of time with Lucy's Goldsboro cousins. 


Lucy is so in love with swimming at the pool that she wakes up every morning or every nap saying "I had a good nap, let's go to the POOL". 

We've had to improvise with a back deck pool (thanks Glamma) until the pool opens full time next week!

Happy almost summer to you! Do you have a summer bucket list?
