10 and 11 months

Behind as always :)  Here are Colette's 10 and 11 month pictures.  I can't believe we are a month away from her turning 1!

school's out!

Elianna's last day of school was last week.  Next year she will officially be in Pre-K!  She had such a fun year and again we are so thankful for her wonderful teachers and really everyone at her little school.  Of course we had to get ice cream to celebrate :)  Here's to a fun summer ahead!

9 months

Colette is 9 months old!  I can't believe it!  She is such a happy baby and this is such a fun stage.  She weighs 19 lbs and is 28 inches long.  She has 8 teeth (!) and says mama.  She is starting to clap and is pulling up on everything.  She can make her way around things by holding on and she has a little walker push toy that she zips around the house with.  I'm pretty sure she'll walk in the next month or two.  Definitely before Elianna did.  For now we are all just trying to keep up! :)

mother's day weekend

I had a great Mother's Day weekend!  The love actually began last week on Thursday.  Elianna's class had a Mother's Day tea party for us.  She made me a jewelry box, a pretty necklace and filled out an insightful questionnaire :)  On Friday, my mom came into town for the night.  She brought me all sorts of goodies, one of which was a beautiful necklace.  So special.  Saturday morning the girls and my mom and I went over to our favorite plant nursery to walk around in the beautiful weather.  They have cats and goats and chickens that we got to love on.  They also had a little craft area.  Elianna planted a pretty pink zinnia for Granny there and made me a pretty pen with a flower glued on it.  For lunch we all went to Ninfa's.  I'm so glad that mom came into town.  It was a great visit! On Sunday I woke up to some sweet gifts, breakfast tacos (yessssss) and lots of love.  We went to church where they had a fun photo booth and spent the rest of the day relaxing!

summer beginnings

Our neighborhood pool opened up for summer over the weekend.  Elianna was so excited.  She's been asking when we could go almost daily for probably a month :)  We got a little float for Colette which she seems to really like.  She kicks her little legs in it and likes to splash the water with her hands.  Elianna's swim lessons are coming in handy for her and she is such a little water bug now. Once school is out and summer is in full swing, we will be right here most days!
