like i said in the last post, campbell is officially a preschooler! i! she is actually going to the same church that kyle and i went to for mdo when we were little. she goes wednesdays and fridays from 9-2:30. she loves it. unfortunately, she's only been one day. she came home the first day and got a fever that night and still had it on friday, so we played hooky. :) but i'm so excited for her to just soak up all that her teachers can tell her about Jesus and for her to simply start really learning stuff! woo hoo for learning!

iphone unloading

so a lot has been happening around here. we started gymnastics again for the year, campbell is officially a preschooler and bsf is about to start next week! campbell also just wrapped up her week of swim lessons, which she loved! so i'll just unload a bunch of sweet pictures i've captured of our two babes from my phone. the comparison picture is of me when i was 4 and campbell at 3...and there are 2 where campbell gets in the same pose and says 'mom, take our picture!' :) she's so sweet

time is flying

time is certainly flying by at our house, as i suspect it is at yours also. we have a 4 month old and a 3 year old who's getting ready to start pre-school! how did this happen?! as sad as i am that i can't freeze time, i'm so excited that campbell will get to be a real person with real things to do this year! 3 going on 30! on mondays she'll have gymnastics, tuesday is bsf, and on wednesday and friday she'll be in school! maybe for her next birthday i should buy her her first calendar :) our life lately has been fun. justin, stacey and riley came for a visit and campbell loved playing with her. funny though that riley is only 1 pound heaver than davis and she turns 1 this month! HA! i love me some chubby baby thighs. we got to go try on flower girl dresses for campbell, for kyle's upcoming wedding...super fun for her! we've been getting ready for school to start - buying a nap mat and a backpack. there are a few more things we'll need, but we have 2 weeks to get them. took davis to the doctor this morning for his 4 month check up and he's healthy as a horse, all 15 lb 7 oz of him! our dogs have started chewing up our rug...aaron's not too happy about that. its rained like crazy here lately, which has made for a little cooler weather. blackberry season is coming to an end, sadly. campbell has loved being out there this summer to pick berries. life is good here! aaron and i are o grateful for good health, happy children, and our many, many blessings!

our life lately

gosh, posting on here is few and far between these days. don't really have much free time... but things are well! i can't believe that davis will be 3 months old just next week! we had his 2 month/baby pictures taken a few weeks ago and we were really pleased with them. we wish we had more, but both kids weren't being very cooperative. here are a few of my faves
a lot more people are starting to say that they think davis looks like campbell. also, a lot more people are starting to say they think he looks like aaron. what do you think? here is campbell was 3ish months old...
we kept it low key for july 4 - we went to my parent's house for dinner with my brother's fiancé, brittany. i had a feeling that campbell would be scared of really loud fireworks, so we went for lots of smoke bombs and roman candles. well i explained all this to the guy selling me the fireworks and he suggested that we get a fountain. 'it just sprays lots of colors' he said... so i said sure. i wish i could show you the entire video that we took for kyle, but i don't have the right cord to hook my phone up to my computer, so this is all i could e-mail myself.
needless to say, it freaked campbell out just like we thought it would. ha! we also celebrated our friend charli today; she turned 2 yesterday. we had a lovely time at cici and paw's house loving her and having wonderful fellowship. cam absolutely loved playing outside with charli, landree and paxton!
this is our life lately, thanks for checking on us! hopefully it won't take me so long to update again!

so to try to find time to update this is few and far between, but as i sit here pumping, i'm making the time :) about a month ago, campbell finished her gymnastics for the year. and mid-year, so moved up to preschool gymnastics instead of the mommy-n-me gymnastics which was wonderful news given that i was as big as a whale! i got to just sit and watch instead of help her with things. she loves gymnastics and i love that she's learning coordination at such a young age. then, our sweet campbell turned 3! we can not believe that she's already 3! everyone says it goes fast, and they're so right! we loved that uncle tyro and lindsay and aves could be here for her party this year! the weather was perfect for her party, which i was a little nervous about given all the bad weather we've been having lately. everyone came out to love on and celebrate our girl and she had a great time! lastly, little man is almost 2 months old! he's doing great! he eats like a horse and weighs probably around 12 or 13 lbs! he's eating 5.5 oz every 4 hrs like clock work! he likes to be held more than campbell did, which is nice, but not so nice when you have to pump or have a 3 yr old yelling 'mom, i pooped'... aaron and i and baby d are all going to santa fe in a week and a half for our anniversary trip #7! scratching another state off the list and adding to the scrapbook! we're really looking forward to relaxing and doing a little shopping. and aaron has agreed to get his first pedicure! ha! campbell will stay with my parents and i'm sure she'll have a ball riding her new tricycle they gave her and feeding the geese and swinging...some of their usual activities. when the last round of tornados came through this last friday we were about to have to go down into our shelter and aaron said grab what you want to keep and i grabbed my glorious anniversary scrapbook. i could look at it everyday. things here are going well! :) i'm so thankful for the life that i have and my little family that God has given me
