Day at the Beach

The day after Memphis' party, we headed to the beach to have fun in the sand! Grand Daddy was happy to help us scoop up some holes.
Memphis had some cool new toys
I really enjoyed looking in the water, warming up to go in it
Watch out toys, we'll save you from the waves!
It was nice just hanging with the girls in the water
The boys did a good job holding down the towels.
Capri suns always help you cool down in the summer heat

Happy 2nd Birthday to Memphis!

My cousin Memphis is 2 and she is so much fun to play with now! I was so happy to be able to go to her birthday party and celebrate her special day. She had a Shrek theme with balloons:
at a playground with big ladders to climb (Mommy was very impressed with the fact that I went by myself),
fun, twisty slides to go down,
and big girl swings- thanks Grand Daddy for the push!
My favorite time is always cake time, so I make sure I am close by to get a piece.
Memphis was so nice to share her Shrek characters with me to help lick the frosting off
It is hard to get us both to smile and look at the same time
I think Memphis is thinking about opening her presents...
I volunteer to be a special helper for presents time!
See, I make sure she gets all her gifts to open & I even help with the wrapping paper!

Birthday Party Fun

This is a busy month of birthdays for my friends! First, we celebrated Katie's 3rd birthday with a Curious George party. Georgie came along, of course.
I love birthday party food, mainly the cake!
I was a big help in opening the presents
What? This present isn't for me?!
Big hug for the birthday girl, Katie!
Next, we attended Jasmine's 2nd birthday party (her mommy, Shannon, cuts all our hair)
See how much I love the cake!
We cooled off in her swimming pool
I poured water all over Jasmine's head and sometimes mine as well.

To combat this summer heat, Mommy took me to a local sprayground. I, however, was not crazy about getting wet that day. Instead, I enjoyed my Curious George fruit snacks,
Went for a swing next to my friend Riley,
and pretended to play ball with my friend Kaitlyn.
Mommy (due Sept 3rd), Amy (due Aug 9th) and Rachael (due Sept 6th) tried to stay cool and compared their bellies
Here are some other things that I prefer to do this summer- Ride on the uptown train
Play with Daddy at the Imaginon library in Charlotte
Goof off with one of my favorite things- a Gingerbread Man
Flash my smile for the camera
Balance on one foot while doing the tree pose
Say cheese with my Mommy
Eat colored ice-cream cones
And the yummy ice cream inside
Lastly, I am learning to put on make-up with Mommy
and I practice on Georgie! Don't worry, it's pretend make-up for me for at least another 10+ years!

Mommy & baby brother

Mommy & Daddy haven't been as good as taking pictures of Mommy's belly like they did when I was in there, but here's one from the beginning of June, when Mommy was about 6 1/2 months along.
I had to give baby brother a hug too! I am so excited to become a big sister!

Happy 4th of July!!

I love the 4th of July, although I don't always like the BOOM of the fireworks unless I can see them. Our neighbors enjoy shooting them off and sometimes they scare me, but I did enjoy seeing them in downtown Rock Hill!

Mommy & I celebrated early with a playdate with our mommies group- I sure do love a cupcake!
Check out the awesome shirt I decorated myself!
A mexican restaurant is a good place to celebrate the 4th (technically the 3rd) with some red salsa & white chips
Grand Daddy and I enjoy being silly together
Daddy always gives me a nice ride on his shoulders
Jumpy houses are a blast!
I was so excited for it to be the 4th of July!
Time to wait for the fireworks- juice, check...
Say hello to Grandma Teresa in Tennessee, check...
have a snack, check...
try not to fall asleep, check...
well worth the wait and late night, check!
