6 Months

Oh my little Baby Doll. Stop growing up so fast! Those round little checks I could just kiss all day. At 4 months you were only in the 10th percentile. You've shot up to the 40th percentile in just 2 months. 15 lbs 4 oz. (40th percentile), 24 3/4 inch and (20th percentile). Your 3-6 month clothes are getting too tight and have to wear 6-9 or 6-12 month. Your 2 little bottom teeth poking in make you look so big. You're loving eating baby food and have tried green beans, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash and bananas. Did you know you have the cutest little indent/hole in your ear that looks like a freckle and a little birth mark on your bum? Both of these you had at birth and they have not changed in the past 6 months. You light up every room with your smile and make our home all the more happy! We love you Olivia!!!

Happy Turkey Day

We are so thankful for all the blessings we've been given. How grateful we are to have our church, 3 healthy girls, a home, and be surrounded by the love of friends and family. Thanksgiving dinner at Auntie Pam's house was delicious and so beautiful. The adults had a pleasant time chatting and the kids had just as much fun being together.

Friday we all went to Travel Town in LA. We brought breakfast burritos and had a picnic breakfast. The kids loved exploring all the trains and riding the mini train around the park.

We have been wanting to go to Disneyland ever since we moved here and finally found the perfect time to go. The weather was pleasant, the lines weren't too long, the girls were in heaven, and we all had a blast. My mom was sweet enough to watch Olivia, which made it much easier and more enjoyable not having an infant.
I love how magical everything is there. The girls thought all the Princesses and characters were real.

Abigail was just shy of 35 inches which meant she got to ride 2 of the "big kid rides" (Matterhorn and the toon town roller coaster). She LOVED them. We had to do a pony tail on top in order to sneak by.

Gracie is just barley 40 inches which meant she was able to ride every single ride but one. That girl was made for wild rides. She had her hands up and was squealing during them all. She loved Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Splash Mountain. Now that our kids are getting older, and taller, and braver, it makes Disneyland a whole new experience.

It was fun meeting up with the Grahams and riding some rides with them. It was a nice switch up in our day having some new faces to enjoy the evening with.

We were at the park from 9:30AM to 9:30PM and soaked in every single second. Our kids NEVER fall asleep unless in their beds (no matter what time it is or what they've done that day). I guess we finally found something else that puts them to sleep...a fun filled day at Disneyland!
