Baby Dedication

Reese's baby dedication was on Father's Day
This is pastor Jim...He prayed over the babies and encouraged the parents to raise their children up in the Lord. Really, I think it should be called a parent dedication:)

Praying over Reese.
LaLa and Piper.

Reese Leigh's namesake

Reese and Maggie are sweet friends...

Is she not the cutest???

Deese is ten and a half months old! Bella, my little niece calls her Deese, so it stuck:)

She finally started saying "Da Da and Ma Ma" this week! I am sure Jeremy would want you to know that she said Da Da first:)

She skipped right over baby food and went straight to table food. She likes it in chunks, nothing runny, not even applesauce. She's very clear when she doesn't want something. She refuses to open her mouth and she turns her head. She loves cheerios. And she likes to pick up her food by herself with those chubby little fingers.

Still not crawling, but starting to scoot across the floor...when she is actually on the floor, which isn't often:) MiniMe usually has her.
And that leads me to my next point, this kid is rotten, rotten, rotten! She is so used to being held that it's very difficult to put her down. And forget about leaving the room! I am working on this:) But...babies don't keep:) So we'll probably continue to hold her and spoil her to pieces. Just cause.

She has six teeth and more on the way.

Remember last time I updated and said that Gracie was concerned Reese didn't like her? Well now Reese will reach for her. It's so precious.
She still really prefers her mommy, but Gracie is a very close second.

Cannot believe I will be planning her first birthday soon!

The Beach

The beach just begs me to take pictures of the girls all dressed up. I can't help it!

Reese, Tristen, Gracie, and Piper
notice:Bella is not in any pictures, she was not going to cooperate no matter how much bribing we did! She is two afterall.

Such an accurate picture of my girls!

The only way we could get Bella in....

Cousins are lots of fun!

The Beach

We had great weather for the beach this time!

This was what the ocean looked like the first day we were there. It was so calm! Barely any waves and it was great for the girls.
Bella and Reese playing together in the sand
Reese loved chewing on this shovel

She thought she would try some sand. But she didn't like it too much:)
The girls preferred the pool to the beach. What?! We can do that at home we told them, but no, they wanted to spend most of their days at the pool.

Gracie is getting better and better at her freestyle!

Redneck Garden Gate

We needed a fence for our garden to keep the deer out. Jeremy, with a little help from me, spent most of the weekend constructing our fence. We used stuff we had on hand to save money. I love how Jeremy can rig anything up:) Okay, lots of times I don't love how he does that, but I do appreciate how he can fix just about anything!:)

So here we have our redneck garden gate...a Jeremy special.
Everytime I have to open that thing, I just shake my head and smile. I shake my head that it's so rigged and a little bit of a pain. But then I smile because I am so grateful for my husband and his desire to serve me.
At least the things growing inside our redneck fence are producing good fruit!

Thank you honey for my redneck garden gate!

The week before last Reese and Piper were sick. It was a loooong week with the longest stomach virus we've ever had in our house, so they girls were begging to go to the pool but of course we couldn't. Piper got this cute little sprinkler for her birthday so I pulled it out for them.

Gracie and Ellie loved it!
Piper spent a little time in it but she was worn out quickly.

My favorite picture of the morning:)
Loved this one too.

Summer is definitely here! SOO HOT!

Beach Day

We did get one nice beach day!

The girls decided to feed the seagulls. ewwwh. One of them pooed on my towel. ewwwh.

The water was cold but they didn't usual:)
We built a boat.

Piper was in the water a lot more than she usually is. Maybe she's going to go for it this year.
