18 months!

Dear Finley,

You are 18 months and full of JOY! Now that you are walking, you are running! The best way to describe you is BUSY. You are on the go from the time you get up to the time you go down. You love to play, play, play.  You LOVE your big brother and sister and follow them everywhere.

You are just the sweetest. You give "pats" to us when we ask you to. You wake up happy every morning. You are THRILLED that it is summer and both your bigs are home. They usually beat me to you in the morning and you couldn't be happier. You start dancing as soon as you see them.

You still like to eat and like to try everything. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop on that one! We will see if you are sole standout in the eating department!

You LOVE to be outside. You go to the back door and say "outside?" You love bubbles and chalking and running and swinging.

You had another ear infection this month and it made me so sad. We knew you weren't feeling well because you were so STILL! Sweet baby girl.

We love you more than words can say. You are our cherry on top.


Splashing and Camping...

While Hud continued to live it up at camp, the girls and I hit the splash park. And one of them was NOT a fan!

Harper tried to hard, bless her heart. But, Fin, much like her older sister at this age, did not care for the water in her face.

In her happy place!

The next day it was Harper's turn to go to Build A Bear!

And as always, she is so sweet to share with her baby sister:

Thrilled with Peppa and Elsa!

Later it was time for swim lessons, where she learned to DIVE!

Then it was time to pick up this sweet boy from his last day!

He loved having his buddies with him and had another great year at Camp Thurman!

Park days

The girls and I hit Pantego park after dropping off Hud one morning. Fin actually had her 18 month appointment that morning, so we couldn't stay too long, but long enough to have fun!

My sweet sisters:

After the appointment, we hit Target. It was the greatest day of Harper's life, she has been waiting for Fin to be able to sit in this cart with her:

Then a Pei Wei date with my favorite girls:

This and That

Harper has the patience of a saint! Fin LOVES to brush Harps hair and Harper always lets her:

Sister's goofing off:

Sweet sister at swim:

Harper is such a FISH!

Later that evening, we had Harper's end of year soccer party at the park. Harper and Coach Daddy:

Sweet Ladybugs!

Don't tell Trent, but the kids and I went joy riding in the Jeep!


Camping and Swimming

It was Hudson's turn for Camp Thurman! Hard to believe this was Hud's 4th year to go!!! He was so excited!

He had two good buddies in his group this year:

The first day was a bit rocky for a variety of reasons (none of which Hudson was overlay aware of), but after a quick meeting on Tuesday it was all taken care of. He had a great week!!

Meanwhile, Harper started swim lessons!

Camp and more

Harps conquering some fears at camp!!!

Full car = full heart!!!!

I promised Hudson a trip to Build A Bear while Harper was at camp (and then vice versa the next week). Lucky him, they were having a special on Star Wars characters! He picked out his two and we each put a heart in them, even Fin:

He stuffed them:

Washed them:

And then Darth and Chewy came home with us:

An even fuller car! :)

My sweet girl, having the time of her life at camp. I am so proud of her. She was really nervous about going and quite uncertain, but she LOVED it. Harper is such a girly girl, but she really got into camp! And it only took her 3 days to say to me, "I am pretty sure it would be okay if I wore a dress over my swimsuit to camp instead of a t-shirt tomorrow". HA!

I am raising two girlie girls!

Summer agrees with him!

I took Hudson and Fin to the library while Harper was at camp. I must take Hud back without Wild Child because I was too busy chasing her to help him pick out many books:

Such a great week!!! So proud of my Harps for giving it a try!
