Blessed beyond words!

Stella has been so full of life lately! Clever as heck. I took her to see her first movie in a theater on Saturday. We saw Despicable Me 2 and it was really cute. She liked it a lot, I think the loudness overwhelmed her at first. Lisa watched Vivian while we were gone. That night when I was getting Stella ready for bed she said, “Thanks for everything Mommy!” It was so sweet. Lately she is big on kissing you if you have a spot that hurts. I told her I was not feeling good and she asked me where it hurt. I said everywhere. She kissed me about 3 times on my face and then said, “I’ll get the rest tomorrow.” It was so dang funny. When I told her she and I were going to go see the movie, just she and I, the first thing she asked was, “ Who’s going to protect Vivian?” 

Sunday Stella, Vivian and I walked to Panera for dinner. It was so beautiful outside and the weather was so perfect. Both girls behaved perfectly and it was just a really perfect time.  

It was so cute, one  day Stella was walking around the living room. She said, “Look at me Mommy, I’m walking backwards!” Then, “Do you think anybody has ever walked backwards before?” It was so funny and sweet, like she just came up with the concept of walking backwards. She is just getting so big and grown up. I am trying to embrace every moment. She is just so sweet and kind and I love her so much.

Vivian is starting to pull her self up! It’s crazy. She will be in her carseat and there are links hanging down. She reaches up, grabs them and pulls herself up. She is so strong. We are currently treating thrush. It’s tons of fun!! We’re using All Purpose Nipple Ointment and Gentian Violet. Vivian is very Violet!! J She is getting good at going to sleep on her own too. And laying in the pack in play flat as opposed to the rock n’ play. She is so adorable and happy and sweet!

Man, I am a blessed lady!

One Blessed Mama!

My big girl rolled over for the first time Saturday! She was laying on the floor and Stella was down there talking to her and playing with her princesses. And she went left and rolled completely over laying with her head held way up. She was 4 months old on Sunday and she is so sweet and precious! She weighed 14lbs 6 oz and was 24.5 inches long. She did so good getting her shots, this time she only had two compared to the 5 she got last time. She is a raspberry blowing fool and it’s so cute. We have raspberry blowing contests J. Video to follow. She is sleeping ok, obviously I would like to get some nice 5 hour blocks of sleep, but I don’t mind. She has been having a little sleep regression and maybe a cold the last few days. I think she’s feeling better now.

We all went to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum last weekend. Stella had a really good time. She is also doing great in swim lessons. She is very slowly getting more used to the idea of getting water in her face. She used to get a death grip on you in the water because she didn’t want you to let her go. And now she is comfortable swimming with her floaties on by herself. And she is getting her face/ears/hair in the water more. She really enjoys swimming and she and Pawpaw go during the week too. Stella is such a great big sister and such a sweetheart to everyone. I love her so!!

Amazing Vivi Girl

Vivian is growing so fast! I can't believe she is almost 4 months old. She is growing up so fast! She is so good with her hands now, she can grab stuff with both hands. I have been working super hard on getting her poos straightened out. She has been having mucus in them and they were greenish. Before that they were really thick like peanut butter and orangish. So, I have eliminated dairy (5/12) and soy and gluten (7/5). It has been so hard and I am not sure if the gluten has helped or not. I am sure she is teething now. Besides a ton of drool I can see two little teeth under the gums. She loves sitting up now, if you lay her flat on the bed she literally lifts her shoulders an inch off the ground. She just recently started blowing raspberries. It's so cute. She is such a smiley baby and she is so precious. I love her so so much. She rolled over from tummy to back a couple weeks ago and she is so close to rolling from back to tummy.
Here are some pics from fouth of July.
