Slip'n'slides, Swimming and Ellie at 2 1/2 months

Swimming at the pool with friends
More pictures of Ellie at 2 1/2 months: She started smiling and now we can usually get a picture of her smiles. She is Sooo happy in the morning, and then after about an hour of being awake she falls asleep again. She has been sleeping from 10pm-4:30am for 3 weeks now, and the past few nights it has been 9-4:30. Then she eats and sleeps again until about 6:30am. Her crabby time is around 5pm when I am thinking about making supper. She is happy pretty much all the time unless she is tired, hungry, or a bit gassy. The boys get in her face at least 6x a day (each) and today I found Andy violently shaking her toys on her play mat (above her) and yelling "Thunderstorm!" When she went to her 2 month appointment, she was in the 25% for height and weight, and 10% for head size. This was great because at 2 weeks she was at 5% for weight.

Summer fun in July

So Besides the fun in Iowa this summer, here is what else we have been up to: Jay and Andy played T-ball. It was...pretty uneventful, and HOT.
We have gone to the splash park to splash and scooter many times. This time it was with Trish. Oh and Jay got stung by a yellow-jacket there.
We went to Chick-Fil-A cow appreciation day and got free food:
Ellie is looking cute as ever:
We went to a children's museum:
I made some crazy pancakes:
The boys got Ellie ready for some football:
John had a few conversations with Ellie:
Ellie smiles at her Giraffe: Ellie Turned 2 months...but taking pictures didn't go so well:
We had a few fires:
I put Ellie on Grandma's couch for a few minutes while I got things ready for bed. Next thing I know Jay has opened her PJ's and is giving her raspberries and talking in a high pitched voice trying to get her to smile:) He loves his sister.
We got all dressed up for family pictures:
During the actual photo shoot, Ellie didn't smile at all. Luckily the next day in the car, I got this shot:)

Iowa Summer Vacation 2016

We had so much fun in Iowa with Grandpa and Grandma. On the way there, we stopped at a new hotel with WATERSLIDES. Ellie also went "swimming"for the first time.
We had plenty of cousin time.
I love this next picture. Anytime Ellie needed to sleep (and be out of the way)...we would put her underneath the table in the living room. No little boys would accidentally run in to her (or touch her face). Plus we could easily hear her when she cried:)
The kids did their own parade where they threw out candy.
The boys loved the waterslide.
Aunt Lori made an adorable doll for Ellie:
Jay got to drive the mower:
We went to Oak Grove:
