2 months

Ellie turned 2 months on August 18th, I am not sure where those 2 months went. They change soo much in the first few months of life and with her being my second I feel like I am grasping, holding onto every little change. Ellie is our little rollie pollie, I love it! She loves to nurse and there are days I feel like that is all I do. She has become a big "talker" which we love but I think my favorite change is the smiles we get every time she looks at us. She is growing like crazy, here are her stats!
Weight: 12 lbs 2oz  75%
Height: 23 1/2 inch  90%

Where a kid can be a kid!

Several months ago, Cayden started to grow fond of the Chuck e cheese commercials he would see on Disney Jr. and would always ask if he could go there someday. His Uncle Scott had been dying to go with him so we made a trip to one right before Julie had to start back at School.





Luckily our city's school district was already in so there was hardly anyone there =)



The pictures will say it all but Cayden had a BLAST, he loved everything and probably would have wanted to spend the whole day there..















Daddy and Uncle Scott had fun playing as well..











This is where Julie and I spent most of our time, we love this game

Beach time with Auntie!

Our second trip to the beach this Summer was sadly in the beginning of August, and unfortunately Julie's first. With just a couple weeks left of Julie's freedom before school started we had to make a trip. The weather was great, Cayden had a blast and Ellie was happy, it was a good day at the beach =)

Sheriff Amy!

On August 6th Julie, the kids and I headed over to  Cerritos to visit Sheriff (cousin) Amy! Cayden is WAY into police cars so we knew he would have a blast sitting in it. She let him play with the sirens which he was really excited about..









Their station is right next to the library which was pretty amazing. So we had fun walking around and playing in there for a little bit...















We decided to have a little picnic at a pretty park near by but before we did Amy drove Cayden in the parking lot to our car...
He had such a great time!!

Already!?

A few days before Ellie turned 7 weeks she started rolling! I could not believe it, we thought Cayden rolling at 2 months was early. I was wishing nothing more than for her to take her time on everything; rolling, crawling, walking. Apparently she has other plans. We also thought maybe it was just a fluke thing but she kept going and hasn't stopped.
Luckily I was able to capture it on video the second time she did it that night..

The day she was blessed..


Ellie was blessed by her Daddy on August 4th. It was a beautiful blessing and a beautiful day, we had lots of family and friends there to celebrate the special day with us.





All of the men who joined Mike in the circle minus Jared..















Ellie wore the dress I blessed in when I was a baby =)























Such a goof..























Had to get some 3 generation photos..







The 3 little cousins were finally able to all be together..

Splash park!

On August 1st Julie and I took the kids to a splash park. It was a nice hot day but for some reason Cayden was FREEZING the entire time while playing in the water, his whole body was shaking like crazy so unfortunately we didn't stay long but he had a lot of fun while it lasted =)





















Cayden insists on wearing his towel like Daddy does which is really cute but also a challenge since he is so little..
