2015 Summer in Texas

After Isaac gave his final GT presentation on this tiger,
We could all relax and let loose a little

Take time to dress up, take a selfie, pretend and put on a puppet show
 Summer has begun!

With some glorious mornings
There were days spent at the pool. 

These were our last swimming lessons with our Beloved Bailey before she headed off to college, and now, a mission (Japan)! Her mom is my favorite. It was so great to catch up with their wonderful family. And having a sweet, sleepy baby made these days by the pool kind of heavenly! The boys were having too much fun to catch on camera.
There were days at doctors' offices...
 Ellie had to have her eyes checked after an accidental poke in the eye during a car ride with Noah. I thought she did awesome! And her tears glowed in the dark afterward.

We even had our own picnic at the park, to shake things up.

Tubing on the Medina River in Bandera with friends was a highlight

Ellie's 5th Birthday! (yep, still over a year behind)

Ellie at her Birthday Breakfast, May 2015
 My little girl is growing up! For her half-decade birthday, she chose to have a princess party at Pump It Up. Blurry pictures means they were having too much fun to stand still. Ha!
Crazy Kids
Some of my babies, including my newborn in my friends arms

Finally got her to pose because she was adjusting her sock!

The Princess on her inflatable throne

This Coldstone cake was AMAZING!

Eating and watching the slideshow of pictures...that somehow we never got...

And then she went and graduated from preschool. All grown up now!

Just Me and My Baby

I might be a little obsessed with my new baby. Such precious, fleeting days! 
In my lap, awake...
...on my shoulder, asleep...
...swaddled for naptime and grumpy...

...or just sitting on the the tub, tolerating her mama....

Beautiful Blessing Day

It surely is a good thing we had posted all of these on Facebook, because they'd be gone (computer crashed). That would be sad, because this day was so wonderful and I want to remember it always!

A Little Bit of Grandma in Your Life

My sweet momma came to visit her newest granddaughter a few weeks after she was born. How we love to have a grandma in the house! Natalie was able to meet her and the other kiddos were able to go on walks, read and play with her. Such moments make our lives so rich!
