My sweet beautiful cousin Hailey came to visit us recently. She's CJ's god-mother and when we travel back home to Wisconsin it's hard for everyone to get individual time with the kids. So it was great having her come and stay with us for a weekend. She asked me to do some graduation pictures for her since she just graduated college this past May.
She attended Wisconsin Lutheran College and has a degree in Education. She is going to make a great teacher and we are so proud and excited for her. To teach is to touch lives forever. I know for certain that she will influence so many young minds and will be an incredible role model for CJ to look up to as he grows from a boy into a young man. Congratulations Hailey! We Love you!
My sweet silly girl is 6 Months old! A half of a year old. Time please slow down! She is at my favorite age where she can sit and play on her on and she interacts with you and laughs and laughs. She has learned how to stick her tongue out thanks to her Daddy making faces at her.
She is just a happy giggly girl. There is nothing sweeter than listening to her and CJ laugh at each other. He will make faces at her in the car and they just laugh hysterically at each other.
Such a doll. She is rolling all over the place and loves to roll over CJ's train tracks destroying them in the process grabbing trains and mouthing them. She's like a cute baby Godzilla. CJ is not a fan. His trains are the one toy he does not want to share, and that's okay in my book. Check out the gallery here.
I got to spend some time with the Glawe family on a trip to Gaitlenburg. They traveled all the way from Iowa to visit our close friends and their daughter, son-in-law, and most importantly their grand-baby Ally.
We spent the afternoon riding a mountain roller coaster which was amazing. You sit in a single car and you control the speed of how fast you fly down the mountain. I highly suggest checking out Smokey Mountain Alpine Coaster in Pigeon Forge the next time you are there.

Seriously... this girl is just this happy about 85% of the time. The other 15% she is either hungry, needs a diaper change, or is teething. She is not afraid to flash that beautiful smile that melts my heart every time. Daddy is going to be in big trouble when she is older!
She got her first tooth this past month and for the most part wasn't too unhappy. Teething and potty training are my least favorite parts of parenthood. They seem to just be miserable for you and the child its a lose lose until its all done. We are working on potty training CJ and it's going well but is extremely frustrating at times.
She is sitting up like a pro now and wants to crawl in the worst way. We are going to have our hands full when she finally is crawling! Two babies on the move. I know CJ will not be a fan of her getting into all of his stuff! But until then I will enjoy her semi-immobility.
This pretty girl and her big round eyes came back to see me for her 5 Month milestone pictures. It's amazing to not only see how much she has grown each month but also how her personality has changed. She is a different baby, temperment wise, everyday. The time that it takes to get good shots of her each month has become less and less as she coperates more and more. Atleast until she can walk that is. Then trying to take pictures will be like herding cats :)
She's reached her milestone of rolling over, but doesn't roll places just yet. She sits up pretty good on her own too but still needs something soft behind her for when she decides to flop. She loves to babble and has really become a smiley girl :) Check out her milestones gallery here and see how much shes grown!
