A Little Bit of Everything

Here is a little bit of what has been going on with us in the last few weeks.

My brother is getting married in October and we flew to Spearman two weekends ago for the shower.  It was a quick trip, so just Gracyn and I went with my two sisters and my niece.  I wish I had some pictures of us trying to get through the airport.  Camille and I had our babies in baby bjorns, but we still had to lug two car seats and carriers and our luggage.  Thank goodness Cayla was with us.  I don't think we could have managed without her help.

I love that Gracyn and Ellie are so close in age.  They are going to have so much fun growing up together.  Camille and Scott went to a wedding last weekend and we got to babysit Ellie for the evening.  Both babies were good, but it was wild.  I cannot imagine having twins.

Gracyn has started loving her tummy time.

Garrett passed his soccer shoes down to Gaitley because they were too small for him.  She was so excited and wore them all over the house.

 Poor Gaitley has been exhausted lately.  She fights naptime and bedtime.  She is usually the last one down and the first one up and wakes up several time during the night.  I don't know what is going on.  Hopefully, this stage will end soon.  She finally passed out in the living room.

 Garrett has been  into obstacle courses lately.  He makes them for himself and for his toys.  He had all these things lined up outside his bedroom.  He had it where the first toy did something to make the next toy move and so on.  It was pretty neat.

First Day of School

Garrett and Gaitley started school last Tuesday.  For Gaitley it is more of a play time for her and a break time for Mommy, but for Garrett it is the real deal.  He is in pre-K this year and it is all about getting ready for kindergarten.  He absolutely loves everything about it, from the computers to the secret signal you give the teacher when you have to go to the bathroom.  We have been working a lot at home on letters and numbers and things like that, but all of a sudden he is really into it.  He wants to know how to spell everything.  This makes me so excited!  Gaitley likes it too, but she is not as thrilled to go in the morning.  She cries at drop-off, but I know this will end soon.  She is always happy at the end of the day and her teachers say she did great.  It is just getting there that is hard.  I love my Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I get to spend some one on one time with Gracyn and get some things done around the house while she is sleeping.

Pictures at the Park

Sweet girls!

 All three kids looking at the camera!

Sweet Gracyn!

 Gaitley loved running barefoot at the park.

The kids got a little treat for being so good during the photo shoot.

Gracyn is 3 months old

Gracyn is now three months old and things have gotten so much easier.  Bedtime is still a struggle, she is going to be a night owl, but the rest of the day she is happy and a very good baby.  She has even gotten a little better in the car.  She still cries, but can last a little bit longer before that starts.  She talks all the time and just squeals with delight when we talk to her.
