Happy 2nd Birthday, Cambry girl!!

How can it be that we have a two year old now?!! We celebrated 2 wonderful years with our little girl on May 5. On her actual birthday, she opened a couple of presents and our family went out for ice cream after dinner. Cambry was in heaven with her cookies and cream ice cream!

Then, on Saturday, we had a small family birthday party at our house for her, flower-style. Cambry has been into picking flowers for some time now, so it was very fitting for her! She really seemed to understand that she was having a birthday party once everyone got there. She enjoyed opening her presents, gave hugs and thank yous after each one she opened and LOVED eating her cupcake. She smiled the whole time we sang to her and she blew out both candles by herself. After the party was over and everyone was gone she looked at us and said "birthday party, again?!" Haha! Sweet girl! I think she had fun!

Oh, and funny thing about her clothes. The tutu skirt was what I had planned on her wearing. Wouldn't you know that she would not put that skirt on the day of the party without big tears?! So, I pulled out the pink dress from her closet instead. She had a diaper leak during the party and my mom went back there with me to change her and she gladly put on her tutu skirt for my mom. Silly girl. I guess she wanted two party dresses! :)

Some of our sweet family that came...

She really understood opening presents this year!

Excited about her cupcake! She sure did enjoy it! :)

Trying out some of her new toys! Thank you to our families for them!

Happy birthday, sweet girl!!! We love you so much and can't wait to see what this year holds our two year old!!!

Fabulous 4 months!!

4 months has been a big month for our little guy! It seems like he has just grown up so much this month!

* Weight: 14 lbs, 14 oz (50%) Height: 26.5 in (93%) Tall boy!

* He has become a much more efficient eater! On average he nurses in about 20-25 min! Mommy is SOOO happy about this! (I think Cambry is, too!) He takes a bottle in about 10 minutes now, also.

* This month, Chase has become a much more sound sleeper. He sleeps from 8pm-7/7:30am and takes 4 naps, with the last one being about a 45 min cat-nap.

* We started the unswaddling process this month and to our surprise, he has done great! He is currently sleeping unswaddled completely at night and from the waist down/arms out for naps. He curls up on his side and we catch him with his thumb in his mouth often. Sweet boy.

* We started solids this month. He was not a fan of rice cereal, but takes about 2 TBSP of oatmeal for breakfast each morning.

* Chase started rolling over both ways! Big boy!

* He started really taking notice of Lucy dog this month and likes to reach out a pull her ears. So far, Lucy has been very patient with him. :)

* Chase chews on EVERYTHING! Everything goes straight to the mouth!

* Our boy loves to smile. He squeals, giggles, and smiles all.the.time! LOVE IT!!

* He is still such a quiet, calm, & laid back guy that just goes with the flow. He can miss a nap and you'd never know. Such a trooper.

Mommy, Daddy, & Cambry love you, Chase-man! We have so much fun watching you learn & grow!


We ventured out to take some pictures of the kids in the bluebonnets this year. I was so excited about doing this because we missed the window last year with Cambry. I just knew we were going to get an adorable one of both kids together. It proved to be a little more challenging than we thought with the wind, Cambry out to explore, and Chase not being able to sit up. Here's the best we got!

2 Months!

Chase turned 2 months old this past week. I can't believe he is already that old! He is SUCH a sweet, laid back little guy and is growing like a weed! Its still so amazing to me how quickly they grow and change. He had his 8 week check up about a week ago and he is a healthy baby boy! We are so thankful!

* Chase weighs 12 lbs 2 oz (65th) and is 23.5 in (75th)

* He is nursing a little quicker (30-40 min) and takes a bottle well at home, but does not take one very good in public. Too many distractions?

* He is consistently sleeping 7 1/2 hours at night and has made it all the way through the night 2 times now! YAY!!

* He could take/leave his pacifier. He finds his thumb if he is super hungry or during tummy time. I think we may have a thumb sucker on our hands!

* Chase naps for about 1 1/2 hours after each feeding in his room, either in his crib or swing.

* He gives out smiles pretty regularly now & we just LOVE his precious grin! It's still hard to catch on camera, though!

* He likes riding in the car but stopping gets him squirming.

* His favorite place to be is on his back kicking around, cooing at his toys, or smiling at the fan.

* When he is awake, Chase is so content and rarely gets worked up about anything--just being hungry!

We LOVE our little buddy!!

Wiggling out of the swaddle...time to graduate to the miracle blanket!

A little smile for Daddy!

Love from big sister!

Tummy time thumb sucking typically results in this:

Sweet Big Sister

In the midst of Cambry's transition as a big sister, she has been very sweet to her baby brother. She calls him "Baby" and when we ask her what he says she says "wahhh". She gets very concerned when he cries and wants to give him his paci as quick as possible. :) She also likes to point out his eyes, mouth, etc. and wants to know where Chase is when he is not around. Sweet girl. I am excited for the day they become playmates! Here are some sweet moments we have captured of her loving on him!
