We are having another… BOY!

In November, we will be welcoming another bouncing boy into our family! We are so excited! Max is so great, he has begun suggesting names and likes to talk to his brother through my tummy. Gwenyth’s love for babies has not dwindled in the least and we know she will be so happy to finally be able to hold a baby on a daily basis.

Summer always seems to go by so fast and it is hard to believe that we are already past the 4th of July. We have kept very busy with many outdoor activities including a few trips to the splash park, bike riding, farm trips, and visits to many local parks.


My three loves at the fireworks; blurry but the only one I got!

When it gets too hot, you can find us at the library!


This year, my hands are very full whenever we visit parks. Max is so great at trying new things and enjoys climbing and jumping. Gwenyth enjoys doing whatever big brother does, so this means I am constantly walking around with my hands up in the air ready to give a boost or catch when needed.

Here are the two of them going down some slides.

We are looking forward to the rest of what summer brings and then will welcome the fall wholeheartedly as it means we get to meet our new little guy!



Thanks to Frozen, whenever we hear the word “summer”, Max and I break into song! We are going to get gorgeously tan this summer! 😉 We have already packed so much into these first few weeks and I can tell that this will be a very exciting summer of firsts! This is my first full summer with two kids and my first summer with a two year old! (A two year old who likes to run and go places!)

Here are some fun things we have done so far:

This is also the first summer with my big boy using the potty! We are about three weeks in and I am so proud of Max! He is doing very well and seems to enjoy using the potty. It is quite the adjustment to be at the mercy of your child’s bladder, but it is also nice to not have to change two kids’ diapers each day! Yay for Max!

Gwenyth is getting her first teeth. Poor girl seems to be having a rough go at it. I can see the two front, two bottom, and one canine trying to pop through. My baby girl is growing up!
