4 and 22!

I can't believe it has been 4 months since Tanner joined our little family! It seems like yesterday, but we have come a long way since then. We have finally settled into a nice routine and the three of us seem to be doing quite well (Noah is still working a lot). I'm officially back at work but I have Fridays off until school starts so we're still doing some play dates. We also found a play group for working moms that we are going to try to get to know in the afternoons and evenings.

Tanner is doing really well. He's growing faster than a weed and is getting ready to move into 6 month clothes! He's mainly wearing 3-6 now and size 2 diapers. He's transitioned to bottles and formula really well although he seems to be a little extra fussy sometimes. He sleeps amazingly well! He eats around 8:30pm and goes straight to bed and doesn't get up until 6:30am. I almost feel human again :) He's doing really well sitting up as long as he is propped against something and he can hold his head up with no problem. He rolls on his side but hasn't made it all the way over yet. When he is on his tummy he kicks and moves his arms like he is trying to crawl (but of course he can't yet)! He smiles all the time and has started to let out a few giggles. He always wakes up smiling and as soon as he hears us he starts smiling. He also follows his bottle with his eyes! He knows where the good stuff is. He's still pretty laid back and just likes to play and watch what everyone else is doing. He knows he'll get to do everything soon enough!!!

Doing what he does best!
So curious!
Izabel is a mess! We have hit the terrible twos already and we're still two months away from the big day! She's still incredibly sweet and well behaved though. She loves taking care of Tanner. She still burps him and now wants to hold his bottle. She gets me a clean diaper and puts the old one in the diaper genie for me. She also shows Tanner how to play with all his toys when he is in the entertainer. She's still wearing mostly 12 month clothes but is starting to transition into 18 months. She's wearing size 3 diapers and the pullups are way to big for her! She eats really well with a spoon and fork which is nice. She can still make quite a mess but she eats applesauce, yogurt and cereal with milk all by herself and usually gets most of it in her mouth! She can put her crocs on by herself and she leaves her hair alone after I do it! She loves to swim and play ball. Granddaddy will sit in the hallway and tell her to sit at the other end like him. She'll sit down and spread her legs facing away from him so she is sitting like Granddaddy! We can't convince her that she would still be sitting like Granddaddy even if she turned around to face him! It's so cute. She's been having a blast playing in the backyard and going on numerous play dates all around town. We've found so many fun and mostly inexpensive things for her to do! She's had a great summer and we've been able to still get out a lot even with a new baby brother at home! I can't believe Izzy is almost two and I'm already thinking about the big party! We won't be going on so many play dates now that I am back at work but we'll still be doing fun things to share :)

My little chef!
and she's an artist too!
Playing with RJ at the library. She looks like such a big girl!
