Getting Ready for the Wedding

Here are a few pictures of Rayna and Michelle before the wedding. So beautiful!

Rayna and Drew

Rayna's cousin, Drew, was the ring bearer in the wedding. That made it much easier for Rayna since she adores him and will follow him anywhere. He looked so handsome and did such a great job! They were absolutely precious together!

Flower Girl

Rayna was asked to be the flower girl in our friend Michelle's wedding. She was so excited for the wedding and to wear her "wedding dress." She looked beautiful and did a really good job. It took a little coaxing to get her to go down the aisle, but she finally did it. I think she got a little overwhelmed by all the people and forgot what she was supposed to do. But she was adorable and had so much fun!

5 Months Old

Brady turned 5 months old on Thursday. He is growing up so fast! He rolls over all the time now and is doing a pretty good job of sitting up on his own. He loves to play and jump in his exersaucer. He recently discovered his tongue and now he sticks it out all the time. He loves to smile and is happiest when someone is talking to him.

Brother and Sister

Here are some cute pictures of Rayna and Brady sitting together on the couch. Rayna still loves her little brother to death and Brady smiles at her all the time now. It is so cute!

Bandon Beach Trip

To celebrate my sister turning 40 this summer, my family rented a beach house in Bandon for 3 nights. We had so much fun and had such great weather. The kids all did great. Rayna had a blast playing with Joshua, Blake, and Drew. And Brady loved having his auntie's and grammy there to give him lots of attention. We all had a wonderful time and hope we can do it again sometime!

Rayna at the Beach

Rayna had such a great time at the beach! She loved walking around in the sand and digging in it. Her favorite part was getting to go in the ocean. We had one day that was so nice enough to do that. She thought that was so much fun! We couldn't believe how brave she was.

Brady's 1st Beach Trip

Brady did such a great job at the beach! He loved walking around in the baby bjorn and hanging out in the beach house. He even took a nap under the umbrella one day while the rest of us played on the beach.

He's Rolling!

Brady finally figured out how to roll over this week. He's been so close for that past month, but just couldn't quite do it. Now he does it all the time! In fact, he will no longer stay on his back. The problem though, is that he starts screaming if he's on his tummy for too long. Silly boy. Now he just needs to figure out how to roll back over.

3 Month Professional Pictures

Here are Brady's 3 month pictures that we had done. He did such a great job!

Grandpa Larry gave Rayna a set of Teletubbies headbands when we went to visit him at the train station. She has been having so much fun with them. She keeps wanting everyone else to be a "Tebbatubby," especially Brady. He's not too sure about wearing them, but he thinks it's hilarious when we have them on our heads!

Oregon Zoo

We spent Thursday at the Oregon Zoo up in Portland. Rayna was so excited to go and see all the animals! It was a beautiful day and we all had so much fun. Grandpa and Grandma came with us too which was neat. Rayna loved everything there and keeps asking when we can go back.
