My babies are growing up!

I haven’t posted in a few days. I just have been feeling like there are not enough hours in the day lately! Last Friday Blake turned 29 months and on Sunday Olivia turned 5 months old…so I am going to do a post on how they are growing/changing!


Blake is turning into such a little boy! He isn’t a baby anymore. I cannot believe that he will be 2 and a ½ in less than a month! Sometimes I feel like he was JUST born!

His communication skills are awesome. He is talking so much now. It is so nice because now we know what he wants!! He is very polite and uses his “please” and “thank-you’s” freely!

He is sleeping good again. Usually from 8:30 p.m. until 8:00 a.m.

He is LOVING school. No more issues in the morning getting him up and around and out the door. Makes my mornings SO much easier!

He has a pretty good appetite and will eat most things….but hamburgers, fries, cheeto’s, and popsicles are at the top of his list…if only he could just live off of those 4 things…ha! Also loves anything with “dip” (ranch usually).

He is so tall and skinny. He is still in a size 4 diaper, with no real signs of being ready to potty train. Maybe this summer.

He wears mostly size 24 mo. clothing. Starting to get into 2T shirts…but could still wear 18 mo. pants, but they are too short now. He wears a size 7 shoe.

LOVES his nana, and wants to go to “nana’s house” every single day.

Still loves his cartoons…especially Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Pirates, Backyardigans…anything with music. He is also still obsessed with Toy Story.

He is VERY sweet to his sister and is getting protective of her as well.


Olivia is doing GREAT. She is growing like crazy and getting so strong. She is still the sweetest thing ever. SUCH a great baby.

She weighs about 12 pounds now. Still a peanut…but getting bigger.

She is outgrowing 3 month clothing in length, so we are using some 6 month, but those are a little big.

She is still in size 1-2 diapers, but we will switch to size 2 next!

She has started eating Rice Cereal…but doesn’t quite have the hang of it yet. I am hoping she gets it soon, because she is waking up 3+ times a night to eat! I am not really complaining, because I am glad that she is finally eating a lot….but I am hoping that it will be mostly during the day soon :).

She has the cutest belly laugh ever that just warms my heart. She gets a big kick out of everything and will laugh if you just look at her!

My mom got her a new excer-saucer and she loves to sit in that and look around!

I LOVE having my girl and dressing her up as cute as can be.

We feel so blessed to have two such healthy, sweet, happy, beautiful children!!
