Cantaloupe swishers

This girl cracks me up almost every day. She is so full of energy and is definitely the crazy one of the bunch. She is so very social and introduces herself to strangers all the time. She also has some words that she says wrong but they are just too cute for me to correct. She calls antelope "cantaloupe" and when Nora gets tired Emmy will say that Nora is "scrubbing" her eyes. Tonight as we were driving home she told me to "do the swisher again, mom." It took me a minute to figure out that "swisher" meant windshield wiper.

Nora enjoyed her first ever cookie during family home evening tonight. She approves.

Standing tall

Look what this little one learned how to do. She's growing up way too fast. She had her 6 month old shots yesterday and weighed in at 13 pounds 15 ounces. This girl LOVES to eat. When you sit her in her high chair she shrieks until you put something in her mouth. Tonight she had avocado and rice cakes.

Back to school

Charlotte started 2nd grade and Addie started 4th grade. They're wearing dresses that they bought on their weekend trip to visit Grandma. Of course, Emmy had to get in on the picture also. 

Day 2, they rode their bikes to school.

Emmy says...

Last night we took Addie down to Cheyenne so grandpa could pick her up for the weekend. Emmy was asleep for most of the 2 hour ride. When we got to our destination, Sean asked her, "Emmy, did you have a good nap?"

Emmy replied, "I didn't take a nap, I was blinking!" 


This little munchkin can now sit up and crawl.

6 months

Today Nora is 6 months old. The older girls celebrated by building her a house. 

Monday, July 6, 2015


The girls have been playing so nicely today and I love it! They do have their times where they squabble (mostly between Addie and Charlotte), but for the most part they get along. But then there are times like these when they all play together, and cooperate, and are just dang cute. 
Sean let me sleep in this morning, and when I woke up I came upstairs to find Addie giving the other 3 a sled ride through the kitchen. 
Later in the morning try made a fort out of the couch. 
Yep, that's Nora in a baby car seat.

Tonight at dinner, Emmy announced that she is going to call Nora "June."  Addie and Charlotte decided it would be better to call her "January" since she was born in that month. I've been trying to come up with a nickname for this little one and I'm hoping that this sticks because I think it's cute. Maybe Junebug?
