Life with these two babes sure ain’t easy, but it is well worth every second once a cute smile lights up one of their little chubby faces. Summer must be Grant’s favorite season; he just loves being outside splashing around in his pool or water table.

Violet has turned 4 months old this week! Unbelievable! She is getting to be such a big girl.

This was her 4 month old picture. She has taken interest in her pink hippo “Pinky” during this photo shoot which posed us difficulty getting her to pose for us. But after me making a complete dork out of myself, I finally was able to win her attention.

Grant, who is almost 18 months, wanted a turn too. This is the first picture we got of them both smiling. Maybe because it wasn’t planned.

I am having a lot of fun dressing this cutey pie up in pretties. It is definitely a big reward after all the fussin’ she does because of her Reflux.

Her chunky little baby legs are one of my favorite features! I don’t know what it is about them, but I just can’t get enough of them.

And I am not the only one who can’t get enough of her. She loves giggling at funny Daddy.

This summer has been great for us. For one, the last two summers I have been pregnant and could not enjoy anything being so hot, tired and nauseated all the time. So this summer it is like we are finally “living”. Grant is at such a cool age where we can do more outside fun summery stuff. Violet is getting to a cute age where she is giggling and talking a lot. Our house is even coming together more with a lot of new updates we have been doing. This is also the first summer where I am not just counting down the days till Fall. I am fully enjoying each night listening to the cicadas and watching the lightening bugs.
