 After all the rain we got some warm fall weather so I took Lulu out by some wildflowers for photos.

We had a good time, just the two of us.

Lulu 7 Months

7 months!!! She said "Mama" for the first time and she did it while looking right at me! She is sitting herself up and is more mobile than ever but not quite crawling. She is feeding herself- baked oatmeal, eggs, beans, fruits and veggies and the occasional treat, usually paper, that a brother left on the floor. She loves to play with her brothers and grab Papa's nose. She is starting to walk while holding my hands. She can stand while holding something. She is the happiest, smiley-est baby! Oh and still no teeth. Her gummy smile melts my heart. She is somehow wearing 6-9month baby clothes, the boys were always needing bigger sizes so this is so strange to me.

I had to try the baby on a shelf thing. It was harder to pull off than I thought.

She still loves to pull off her bows.

Love her baby blues.

Hail Storm

My most recent lens purchase was a Lensbaby. It's pretty hard to focus but since a Facebook group I'm in had a weekly theme of OUT OF FOCUS I decided it was the perfect time to practice with it.

Lulu 6 Months

She started waving!! And we started trying to feed her. She isn't a big fan of solids yet. I love watching her play with her brothers. She is amusing and easy on the eyes. :) She loves pulling Caleb's hair and then laughing about it every time he looks at her.

Here are some of her 6 month photos.

 These were taken a few days early but she's almost 6 months here next to her lion.

Okay, here she is on the tiny newborn bed at 6 months. She is so big!!

 She is the most adorably expressive thing. :) Oh and she is way too good at taking off her bows. :(

 A few days after her 6 month bday I still hadn't put the back drop away so I got a few of these two. Caleb Loves her so much and plays so well with her.
Caleb and Lulu both have those dark blue baby eyes.
Her 6 month stats! I don't remember, exactly but she was 19lbs ??oz and maybe 27 inches and about the 95th percentile for both.

Caleb Is Three

Caleb is 3!!!!
He's been asking for a smash cake cake for about the last 6 months. So we baked a cake together during one of Lulu's naps... and then took these photos later in the day.

in our front yard

And yes that's a pink cake. Pink is his favorite color. Especially pink donuts. And his favorite sibling is often clad in pink so it's the obvious choice.

Everyone came to watch Caleb smash his cake!

He kept looking at them...

He eventually got into it.

He was so happy to share it with Archie.

And that's about as smashed as it got. Which was fine by me. I had a piece and it was pretty tasty. :)
I know, that's like a million photos. But they are just a few of my favorites and honestly, what else am I going to do with them? :) So we took these last week and then had a small party/playgroup on his real birthday and then celebrated later at Chuck E Cheese with just the family. He is still enjoying all of his gifts! And so am I they are really keeping him entertained. :)
