Ada Rose – 5 months


Eats: Milk, milk, milk!

Sleeps: Our sweet girl has been waking up multiple times in the middle of the night, causing mama to feel barely functional. She’s getting over a nasty cold, so hopefully the end is in sight!

Favorite activity: Watching Oliver play. She laughs and laughs every time he is around and she can’t wait to see what he will do next. Ada also loves to talk to everyone!

Least favorite activity: Sitting still! Ada wants to be on the move already. She wants to be in someones arms walking around, and will only tolerate being stationary for short periods of time.

Words: Still no words but she is listening to everything. She loves listening to her big brother talk and talk.

Starting to: Roll over. Ada loves to roll onto her tummy which is one reason she is up at night. She forgets that she can roll to her back and gets frustrated. She also wants to crawl and doesn’t understand why she isn’t moving yet!


Happy Birthday Oliver!


We celebrated Oliver’s 2nd birthday this past weekend with a pool party. Oliver had over 45 guests come to help him celebrate his birthday. He loved having all his friends around to swim with and play with on the playground.


It was difficult not having Costco to shop for the party. Usually I just go pick up some food and paper plates and we’re ready to party. Instead I went to “party supply street”, where they have side by side stores selling cards, paper products, decorations, and balloons. However, Sesame Street decorations were nowhere to be found. I made do with some homemade decorations and balloons. Really, what else does a party need other than balloons and cake?


The party was a wonderful chance for us to spend time with our friends and eat some good food. Ada enjoyed the party as she was passed around from mom to mom getting lots of snuggles. We can’t wait to do it again!
