Historic Westville. At the end of June, Steve went to a wedding in Texas, leaving me alone with the girls for 4 days. It was tough but we survived!
In July, we celebrated the 4th with some friends but still made it home early to get the girls into bed. Steve took command of Dog Troop and became the official "Dog 6." AKA Commander AKA CO. I celebrated my 28th birthday on the 21st with lots of help from our sweet girls. At the end of July, we got a pig! Ok, not really. We had a random little piglet show up and take residence behind our house. He was here for about 2 weeks but our neighbors just called Animal Control to come get him. Percival couldn't stay forever but I hated to see him go! Also in July, we got to attend my oldest brother's stepson's 1st birthday party. Happy First Birthday Landon! In sad news, we found out that my mother-in-law has Stage 4 cancer but she has a great attitude and is ready to fight! Our Nana is tough as nails.
In August, we have mostly just been hanging out! We have been able to visit with some new friends and Steve just had a 3 day weekend. On Sunday, we visited my dad's mother and most of our extended family. There were 3 little girls there including ours. My cousin has a 1 year old who was not sure what to think of the other babies! She is an only child and doesn't go to daycare so she's not used to other children. That was kind of funny to watch.
In girly news- both girls are crawling and pulling up on the furniture. Amelia is cruising along the furniture and pushing her little stroller all over the house. Claire is waving at everyone and will sometimes give you 5. Both girls will give "noggins" when asked. Claire has 5 teeth (and is cutting a 6th) and Amelia has 7 teeth and is cutting an 8th. We are down to one nap a day and still mostly have a 7:00 bedtime. Both girls are getting better at self-feeding but Claire does better than Amelia. Both girls are drinking from a sippy cup but they still get bottles too. And that's what we've been up to!
