6 months with this little piece of heaven. I'm not mad about it. Considering she will be 7 months tomorrow, I figured I should get these up. It's so much harder to keep up with blogging when you have two little ones.

I mean can you even handle this little snuggle bug?!

4th of July

This is our second 4th of July since we moved into our home and last year we had a huge firework show going off in our neighborhood that we could see from our front yard. So this year, we rolled the dice and kind of just hoped it would happen again. And it did! We just sat back and relaxed after having an amazing barbecue that Brandon cooked. He is the best you guys. He is currently cooking us dinner right now while the girls nap. Eleanor was more interested in all the glow sticks my mom brought over than the fireworks but we all had a good time. Good food. Good company.


Her face when my mom pulled up.

I was obviously proud of her outfit.

First time in braids!

Brandon's cooking...(heart eye emoji) He also made delicious sides which I didn't photograph.

The only family photo we have so far with Thor...Haha. Not great, but I actually kind of love it. Harper cracks me up looking down at him.

Sassy pants. If you can imagine her breathing in and out as her shoulders go up and down, that is what she was doing. She didn't want to take a picture.

Isn't it weird seeing photos of just Brandon and I? I honestly don't remember the last time I got someone to take a picture of just the two of us. I think our last photo together was a selfie on our 5 year anniversary? And we are coming up on our 6th next month! But gosh, I love him.

Harper's smile.

My cute sister with that little baby I can't wait to meet!

Lake Powell

My dad had to work for some of our Lake Powell houseboat week and since Brandon couldn't get work off, the girls, Thor and I drove down separate with him and just stayed for a couple of days but it was so good to be back. Eleanor constantly wanted to go and play in the water so we learned real quick that going without swim diapers was the best option. We were just wasting them. Basically all the kids were butt naked half of the trip because there was just no point in changing them over and over. 
Harper learned to take a bottle that week and towards the end of our Lake Powell trip she was taking formula! We had to mix it with breastmilk for a bit until she got used to it. Her pediatrician was worried about her since she wasn't gaining weight and we decided breastfeeding wasn't cutting it anymore. I have a feeling she will chunk up real quick now. 

She loved the rocks and hated the sand.

How cute is she?! Just relaxing.

All that bedhead.

Sunscreening so she can get in the water.

I will treasure these photos forever.

Babies in sink baths!

Babies were always napping and we would have to say "Shh" a lot.

Yes, I'm just as obsessed with taking photos of Asher.

Can't wait to meet that little girl.

My dad and his pups.

Thor loves his buddies.

Eleanor waking grandma up on the boat.

That face!

I mean....I need to hug him. Right now.

They are going to be best buds.

...And some phone photos because they are cute too.

Eleanor fell asleep in the water sitting in her floatie. It was so cute. She was just bobbing up and down with the waves. I didn't want her to get sunburned though so I pulled her out.

Walking with papa.

Dad and Spencer out on a run.

I walked into the room to see Spencer standing on a chair holding Harper with the box she was playing with as she was eating his hair. So cute. Steph was sunscreening him while he kept Harper happy.

Out on the boat, diet coke in hand.

Every time my dad went into a gas station...
