Summer 2011!

It's finally seeming like the rain may be done a bit here and the sun has been shining! Fun! We went to Lincoln Park Zoo 2 weekends ago with Robby's family. All the babies were great and we had a really nice time. Weather was perfect, but it was super crowded. Tomorrow we are having dinner at a friends house, Saturday we have a birthday party to go do for Mia and Ayden, Sunday is church and hopefully Brinley catches up on some sleep :) Monday Alan's parents will be here and we are going to a cookout at Nate's parents (amy's boyfriend.)

We also put an offer on a house and it has been accepted, the banking is all in order, but we had the inspection today and there was some fireplace/wood damage that needs to be fixed so we'll see where we stand after it's brought to the attention of the seller.

Pics from the zoo and my Grandpa's birthday party! It was last weekend and it was very nice!


7 months!

I can't believe our baby is 7 months old!!! Time flies when you become a parent.
Here are some 7 month pics:

She is still a bad sleeper. Goes down around 8:30, up around 11, up around 2, eats around 3:30 or 4, back down around 4:45, then up at like 6:30 or 7:00. I'm exhausted but I know it's all worth it :) Some nights it's up more than that, I'll be so excited when the day comes that I put her down at 8:30 and she sleeps til like 6 lol...
She is a really really funny baby. Fiesty personality, laughs out loud at things that are funny, still has some stranger danger but doing a little better. She looks ridiculously cute in her baby clothes for summer :) I love her baby legs. She snuggles on my at her night time bottle and it's my favorite. She drinks a bottle every 4 hours, anywhere between 5 to 7 ounces. She eats a fruit for lunch and a veggie at dinner. Not a huge fruit fan! She absolutely hates bananas, they about make her puke! She has loved carrots and sweet potatoes. Tonight we will be trying peas for the first time...I wonder how that will go :) She rolls all over the place, LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She can sit up but typically refuses to, she's too busy and always wants to be rolling and playing. If she is sitting it's because there's a toy in front of her that requires her to sit.

She is taking longer morning naps and shorter afternoon naps. She takes about an hr to hr and 15 morning nap and about a an hour and a half to 2 hr afternoon. She really fights sleep like a champ lol...makes me be patient that's for sure! I absolutely love her to the moon and so does Alan :) So blessed :)

Nothing really else is going on! Alan is liking his new job which is great! We both love the hours, so does Brin :) He's excited for his first Father's day this weekend! He's a wonderful Dad!! Hope all is well with everyone!!
