I spend as much time as I can holding this rapidly growing little girl. Even since this picture those legs have grown and that belly has blossomed. She’s chunking up right quick and I love every single ounce of her.
We also spend plenty of time helping Miss Mabel build up her head and neck strength. She kind of loves tummy time and I’m thoroughly convinced that once she can roll over that she’ll be a tummy sleeper.
The two hour nap she took on her tummy(supervised!) on the living room floor the other day is a pretty good indicator of that….
Sometimes after particularly long nights I get lucky and snag a nap on the couch with the littlest.
And sometimes Jim is around to capture it on camera.
We might not get out much, but that doesn’t stop us(them) from getting dolled up and looking oh so cute!
When Daddy gets home in the evenings there’s usually some epic wrestling sessions(him and Abigail) and some major snuggles(all four of us). Plus, the occasional selfie.
We read lots and lots of books and play in both of the girls rooms all day long….and also migrate into the kitchen and living room….
My workout crew keeps me motivated and simultaneously adds an extra layer of challenge and distraction.
One of the perks of working out is that Abigail has discovered how talented she is at performing knee circles.
If the weather permits, we like to walk to the park at the back of our subdivision. I can’t wait for fall weather temps to be able to go whenever we feel like it!
Mabel clearly disagrees.
After Mabel’s early morning feeding, I always pull her into bed with me and snuggle with her as long as time permits. Sometimes we get lucky and get to for a few hours, sometimes it’s only a few minutes before big sister busts in ready for breakfast. Either way, it’s so special. I love keeping my babies close!
Sometimes we get invited to Pride and Prejudice themed birthday parties! Abigail gets to hang with Dad and do cool things like play in the sprinkler, and I take Mabel with me for tea and mini foods.
This sweet face greets me in the morning and is just about the last thing I see before I close my eyes in sleep at night. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
This summer has been about the happiest summer I have ever had and my two girls are the #1 reason for that!
