Etta Lou - 8 Months

Oh, there is so much to say about Etta. She is oozing with character as thick as her thighs. (And trust me her thigh rolls are something to envy.) She is loud, bold and always up to something. She loves to chew on toys, fingers, toes or even her own sister. When she wants your attention she has an ear piercing scream that gets her exactly what she wants. 

She can be super serious one second, and laughing hysterically at the dogs in the next. She enjoys grabbing faces and giving kisses. Her favorite activity is to jump in her doorway jumper or get thrown in the air. 

"Woo" is great at sitting up and loves the freedom rolling around gives her to move through the room. Food is exciting and new and so far there is nothing that Etta will not eat. 

This girl has amazing curls that have a mind of their own. They are thick and soft and Etta loves having her hair played with (que: Mommy's "squeeee!!!")

We can already tell that Etta is a "go-getter" and will make it far in life. She's determined, aggressive and motivated. Nothing will stop her from achieving her dreams! And we think she'll have some big ones. ;)

Cece Bean - 8 months

Cecelia is the easiest going baby there is. She smiles at just about anything, rarely cries and loves to cuddle. She enjoys watching her brothers play, eating yogurt, rolling onto her belly, being carried in the Ergo and sucking her middle fingers.

Bean is still very little, and is working hard to get to 12 pounds. Even though her weight continues to be an issue, her health and strength are not a concern.

Cecelia can not quite sit up on her own, but she loves to stand (assisted) and jump in her jumper. She does a lot of babble and might be the biggest producer of drool in the western United States.

We are so thankful for our calm, beautiful and sunny Cece! We can not imagine life without this angel.

Fly Me 2 the Moon

This last weekend Miles turned two and we celebrated with a moon themed party for a little boy who loves the moon! 

We decorated with silver stars and moon cupcakes.
I love how the "constellation" turned out! It was just cardboard, paint and Christmas lights!
 Eating all of the food that we prepared (which was a collection of his favorites) was a highlight for Mymy :)
 I set up a photobooth hoping to sit back and let the guests take some pics. It was a lot of fun. 
 Miles didn't quite understand the idea. 
 We are reminded every day how lucky we are to have this awesome boy in our lives. He is hilarious, fun, STRONG (willed and physically), very loving and extremely smart. We all love our Mymy!! Happy 2nd Birthday, Rocket Man!
