2 Years Old!!!

Our baby girl turned 2 today. She's growing up so fast. It is so fun seeing how grown up she has become and how she learns new things everyday. Her favorite thing to do right now is play tea party. She loves her new singing tea set she got for her birthday! She also loves singing songs and still loves reading books. We are having so much fun with her!
Rayna had her 2 year check-up and is doing great! She weighs 31lbs. which still makes her in the 95% for weight. She was almost 35 inches tall which is the 75%. The doctor said she looked great and that she is brilliant!

2 Month Check Up

Brady had his 2 month check up yesterday. He weighed in at 14lbs. 12oz. and was 23 inches long. That makes him in the 90% for height and over 95% for weight! We knew he was a big boy. His tummy has still been bothering him so the doctor put him on an acid reducer to see if that helps. We are hoping that it will. He got 3 shots and was pretty crabby afterwards, but is doing much better today. Here are a few pictures of our big guy.

Birthday Girl

We celebrated Rayna's 2nd birthday this weekend. She has been talking about it for months now and was so excited to finally have her Strawberry Shortcake party. (She picked out the theme herself.) We invited lots of friends and family over to celebrate and everyone had a great time. Here are a few pictures of the birthday girl. It's hard to believe she's turning 2!!

Cake Time

Rayna got to have a strawberry shaped, strawberry flavored cake with strawberry filling and strawberry ice cream. She loved it! I think all the other kids did too! She couldn't wait to have us sing "Happy Birthday" and she tried really hard to blow out her candles but couldn't quite do it so mommy had to help.

Game Time

We decided to try to play some games at Rayna's party. Not the easiest thing to do with 6 kids that are all under the age of 2! They were so cute though. They played "Pin the strawberry on Strawberry Shortcake" and did a strawberry pinata. So much fun!


Rayna had so much fun opening her presents and checking out all her new goodies. She wanted to play with everything and had stuff everywhere! Here are some cute pictures of her opening presents and also showing some of them off. Thank you so much to everyone for all the great gifts!

2 Months Old

Brady turned 2 months old last week. Crazy how fast time has gone by! He is such a big boy. Earlier in the week when I weighed him, he was 13lbs. 13oz.!! He is finally starting to sleep a little better and has actually had a few 5-6 hour stretches at night. Thank goodness! He is also batting at his toys and is much more aware of what's going on around him. He actually kind of enjoys being awake sometimes!

Smiles (well almost)

Brady has started to smiling a little bit. It is so sweet. We tried really hard to get a picture of it, but it happens so quickly and then it's over. So this is the closest thing we have so far.

Professional Pictures

These were taken of Brady at 7 weeks.

Happy Easter

Here are a couple pictures of the kids on Easter.

Easter Morning

Here are the kids with their Easter baskets. Rayna loved finding the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid! Brady just hung out in the bouncy seat.

Easter Egg Hunt

We had so much fun at the Easter Egg Hunt this year. The weather was beautiful and the kids were great. Rayna had a blast collecting eggs and opening them up. Brady just slept the whole time. What a fun afternoon!

All Dressed Up

Here is Rayna all dressed up ready for church and the Easter Egg Hunt. She loved her new pink dress and her Easter basket!
