Anna 7 months!

Anna is 7 months today. Such a big girl and so happy! We get comments all the time about how content she is. She is very content. Likes to watch her big brother and likes to play with toys. She is however deciding that she prefers to be held and when I put her down she cries until she gets distracted or someone picks her up. I remember this phase with Isaac. I felt very tied down and unable to get much done because the entire time she is awake I have to be with her. When she naps I try to do things like shower and do something around the house.

She is mostly army crawling, still. She has been at this since she was about 5 1/2 months. She is a master now and can cover the house very fast. She is starting to crawl on all 4's but she is much fast army crawling so she just crawls a little and then its back to the army crawl. It is fun to watch her get around and tackle her brother. She loves to get him. It is so cute to watch. Last week she was chasing him and he cried out, "mom, Anna wont leave me alone!" Ahhh, Isaac- get ready for the rest of your life!

In a picture below I got a shot of her 2 front teeth that have come in the past week. Her 2 bottom teeth have come in, too. And her 2 top eye teeth will be making an appearance any day. Wow! We have been teething like crazy around here!

I love these two kids more than I ever imagined. I love watching them play together and create this bond. Ugh- it's indescribable.

July 4th, 2011

We spent the long 4th of July weekend at the lake. We had 3 perfect days on the water. Sun was hot and the water was perfect! I even went swimming with both kids. Anna was a trooper and we woke her up to go watch the fireworks. Both kids fell asleep on the way back to the cabin after the fireworks show. Isaac said his favorite fireworks were the green ones. Go figure. He loves everything green!



Connelly

I assume most of you know my maiden name is Connelly. Well we had to find Isaac a new life jacket and when I started looking I knew what I was going to buy. Of course, one that said Connelly! So here it is. I love it. Best purchase of the summer. :)

matchy matchy

I am not one to put my kids in matching clothes. But, this one time I did. I was going through Anna's clothes and realized she had this cute Twins shirt and she hasn't worn it and it is going to be too small before I know it. So I took a couple of pics.
