Hangin' Out

We haven't been up to much lately. It's been to hot to play outside and there's not a good indoor play place to take Grayson.
So we stay home and try to make sister smile
And Grayson entertains us by doing silly things.
(that's his Easter basket on his head)

It's Like Having Another Baby

Meet Baxter!
After a few weeks of looking we found a dog yesterday.
He is just a puppy, 13 weeks old. He loves to sit on the air vents on the floor. He'll be laying in his bed and all of the sudden get up and run. He is a good little puppy so far. Even slept through his first night.
Jojo has a lot to teach him and I'm sure they will be great friends

Just Because

Yay! I got my new camera yesterday so now I can take pictures of my kids!
I'm trying to get Blakley used to sleeping in her bed while she takes naps. Right now she usually naps in her swing or bean bag. After ten minutes I went in to check on her and she was wide awake. She never stays asleep lying on her back unless she is swaddled.
Our new little "helper" around the house. His new thing is to try and help us clean. He gets the swiffer out at least once a day and "cleans" with it for hours.
We just started using the bumbo with her. She only lasts about 10-15 min in it but she loves it. It's hard to really tell in this picture but she is so tiny sitting in it.
But so cute.

Water Park

Saturday Amazon had a company picnic at Wild Island. We thought it would be fun to take Grayson. Blakley as usual slept most of the time. Here they are playing in the shade.
Grayson had tons of fun playing in the kiddie pool and going down the slides. With all this swimming he's had lately I think it's time to try his pool out again.

Check Up

On Friday Blakley had her two month check up. She is growing great and gaining her weight just fine. She still in on the small side but I think she is just going to be a small girl.
Weight: 9.14lbs
Height: 22.5in

She had started to smile but it's hard to capture it with my phone camera(our camera is no longer working, just waiting to get a new one). She loves baths! She just lounges there while we wash her. Tummy time usually turns into nap time for her, she loves sleeping on her tummy! You can't really tell from any picture but her tear ducts are clogged so they get really red and gunky all the time. Poor girl, but we just got her drops so hopefully that will help. Overall she is an awesome baby sleeps great. Can't say it enough we lover her!

The last week of our vacation was full of activities. (I wish I had more pictures but our camera is not working)
Monday: dad did a little work in the morning and that afternoon we went out to play with cousin Diego.
Tuesday: in the morning we went to the aquarium and that night we hit up a mariners game.
Wednesday: we went to look at our condo than met up with a friend for lunch.
Thursday: we had a little pool party with our cousins. Grayson didn't like the pool at first but got used to it and would walk up to the edge and try and jump in. Thanks for having us over!
Friday: we got up and went to the Zoo. Blakley slept the whole time(that's actually what she did all week, hence no pictures of her) Grayson was worn out by the end of the day.
We had such a great time being home and around family. Looking froward to our next trip up there, cross your fingers it will be sooner than later.

We Love Seattle

Saturday afternoon we got back from a two week vacation back home to Seattle. We had a ton of fun. The first few days Kevin had a conference to go to so the kids and I had some relaxing days with family.

We went to the beach with cousins.

Went over to a new friends house to play in his pool.

And he had his first popsicle.
