Favorite Things

"Mommy you are my third favorite thing"

Really Carter? Is your first Daddy?

"No, my first is Jesus."

Oh, is your second Daddy?

"No, number two is Legos"

Oh, well as long as I rank above Daddy....

First Day of Church

 Miss Roslyn went to church for the first time. She was 2 1/2 months old. I have done my best to protect her at her most vulnerable stage in life. Now it is time to bring her out into the world. 

She sleeps so well in my wrap, I kept her there. Sadly, nobody got to see her pretty dress. Well, you all do.

The Wednesday before church, I took her to a wedding in Portland. A dear friend watched her for me during the wedding. We had a great time.

Subaru Show

This year's annual Subaru show (West Coast Subaru Show 16) was a lot of fun. We ALL went. We all got shirts too.

I took the kids in my car, and David drove his coupe.

I packed the little ones around with me. This gives a whole new meaning to Baby Wearing right?

Surprisingly, it was the 12 lb baby on the front that was the biggest strain on my body, not the 27 lb toddler on my back. I love the Moby for comfort and protection of my baby, but the Ergo really does offer more support for MY body.

Roslyn loved it.

Beckett didn't really get the car thing.

This was the only picture of Carter I got, as he was with daddy the whole time.

And yes, we slept in a tent. Two nights with a preschooler, a toddler, and a newborn. Not my first choice for sure.

Beckett's first hair cut

Beckett doesn't have much hair. However, it started to get a little long in the back. It doesn't look bad,


until he leans his head back,

or grabs it with sticky hands (which usually happens when he is finished with his food).

 So, we cut the back. We left the top completely untouched. 

I was hoping that we wouldn't have to cut any until after he needed a "real" haircut. But, the mullet went out of style in the 90s, so I thought I should leave it there.

Blessing Preparation

We're preparing for Roslyn's blessing on September 7th.

I saved my blessing dress. My mother purchased it at a second hand store when I was born. It was hand made by some body. It is very pretty. I sure hope it still fits her when the day comes. She is growing very fast. I figured that I should get some pictures of her in it, just in case.

Somebody is 2 months old

I have failed to update with pictures for the last month. A girl can change a lot in a month!

She prefers to be swaddled, but wiggles out to sleep in funny ways:

Carter decided he wanted to hold her and pat her back, so he picked her up, pulled her onto him on our bed, and started to pat her back. Scary and endearing all at the same time.

And now, at 2 months:
