Mustache Mania

Elliot has had mustaches on the mind as of late. It's because of Yosemite Sam. She talks about him all the time and loves to visit him at Six Flags. A while back she had Lane make her a mustache so she could be like him, but instead of it being red, she opted for green. These pictures crack me up.

Then she requested that I make a bunch of mustaches for the whole family. So here we are.
Of course she doesn't look too enthused in the picture above, but she really was. 
And now Lane is saying that he wants to grow a mustache because he thinks he looks good in the picture. Sorry honey, it's not going to happen!

Week 15

So far this pregnancy has been good. Not a lot a sickness, which makes me think it's a boy. I will say that I have been showing probably since 12 weeks, which is WAY early. My SIL posted a picture of her at 20 weeks and I am for sure bigger right now. Because of my early baby bump, I feel like this is going to be my fat pregnancy. The strange thing is that I have actually been eating really well and working out regularly, so hopefully that will counteract it. We will see. The only thing of note is that I am tired all the time. I mean really tired. I try to take a nap during Davis' morning nap. And then I'll try to sleep during the kids' afternoon nap. Yesterday I took a 2 hour nap and still went to bed at 9pm and slept til 8am. It is insane!

Next month we will find out what we're having. I can't wait. When I ask Elliot what she would like me to have, she says a boy. Then she follows it up with a dog. LOL! I personally would like it to be a girl. Elliot has so many adorable clothes that are in good condition and I really want to dress up a girl again. Davis on the other hand has only the bare essentials. And since that's the case, most of his clothes are worn out and not reusable. Well when I say most, I mean his onsies since that's what he usually lives in around the house. Lane would like another boy. Time will tell.

Peach Festival

We headed out to the Peach Festival in Weatherford  today. It wasn't near as great as I had imagined. In my head it would be held in this wide open field with rows of buckets of peaches everywhere. Instead it was on the streets (which was fine), but there were barely any peaches. What's up with that? There were lots of craft vendors and your typical fair food. I really wanted to try anything peach related since that's what we were there for, but I was very disappointed. I went to try and buy peach ice cream 3 times and they were sold out all 3 times! I was very ticked. Then I stood in line for peach lemonade for 15 minutes only to find out that they were out. I was at my limit at that point. What kind of peach festival doesn't have more than one place to buy peach foods?! Anyway, we just thought they would be more prepared.

Elliot thought it was fun because she got to ride in this little train.

 This stupid kid photobombed our picture. Too bad because it was the better one of us.
This is what we came back with...peaches and peach salsa.

Davis at 9 months

As of July 7th, Davis is 9 months. I can't say enough good things about this little guy. He is easily the most lovable baby around. Always laughing and smiling. He doesn't have his checkup until later in the month, so I'll add stats to this post later.

He has 6 teeth right now. 4 more than Elliot did at this time. As you can see, he has just learned to pull up on things. I think this will be trouble for me at nap times. I can tell he enjoys it so much. He's still not crawling. Well, he gets up on all fours and may take 1-2 crawls before going to his stomach. Then he'll start scooting around. He pushes off with his left leg and leaves the right leg straight. Hopefully he'll be crawling by the end of this month, but there's really no telling. As far as eating goes, he still takes 4 bottles a day and eats 1 thing of baby food at each feeding. He usually takes 2 hour and a half naps a day and goes to sleep between 7 and 7:30. And the little stinker is still waking up anywhere between 6-6:30.
For comparison, here's a picture of Elliot at 9 months.
You can definitely tell they're related. However I think Davis favors me & Elliot Lane.

Height- 2' 6.5"--95%
Weight- 19 lb 14.9 oz--22%
Head- 17.72"--35%

Little Miss

This was Elliot's 1st real haircut. I have cut it before, but I did it myself. I knew she needed to get her hair cut because it was starting to look raggedy, but I didn't trust myself to really make it look good. So off we went to the local Cool Cuts. It was great because they have cute little cars for them to sit in & a movie going just for her, so she was really good. I was happy with the results. However I was surprised that a child's hair cut costs $18.95 these days. Sheesh!

I originally said to just do a 1 layer bob, but the lady talked me into stacking it a little in the back. I do like how it turned out, but I realized this morning as we're getting ready for church, that I had to blow dry & straight iron her hair to make it look good. Not what I want to do every day!

Our Fourth

What started out to be a boring day actually turned into a pretty fun one! We originally had no plans for the 4th because of Lane's work, but he found out last minute that he got the day off, so we kind of just played things by ear.

First thing this morning, we had a pancake breakfast with our church. They had a short little program with an appearance by Thomas Jefferson that was pretty cute. Then the kids rode in a small bike parade. We decorated Elliot's bike and she was so excited to be a part of it.

After Davis took a nap, we headed to Lane's parents house to spend some time with them. Grandma made Elliot a 4th of July hat that she is modeling here.

We capped off the night at my sister's house. All the cousins swam and we had awesome bbq made by my dad.

We decided to forgo fireworks this year since Davis is so young. I'm really sad that we missed them, but that's just how things go with a little one. I couldn't bare waking him up to take him out of the house just to be bombarded by a bunch of noise. Maybe next year. No wait, we'll have another little one by then. So unless we have a babysitter, it will probably be a few years before we get to see fireworks.

I have been horrible at posting anything exciting these days. Lane has been so busy at work, it seems like the same thing happens everyday. But, we have actually done a couple of fun things. We've been going to lots of birthday parties, which Elliot has loved. 

We also went to a Ranger's game with my parents on Monday. I have been wanting to go forever, but like I've said, Lane's schedule has been crazy. Unfortunately I picked a pretty boring game to attend. The Tigers killed them. And they had won like 6 games in a row before, and every game since. Go figure.

Yesterday, we went to see the Blue Man Group at Bass Hall.  I know we're like 10 years late to the party, but that seems to be how it is with us. It was pretty cool. I really wish they allowed pictures. I didn't even get one afterward. I always plan to, but when it comes down to it, I don't like asking other people to take our picture.
