6 Months

Oh it is so hard to believe!!!!  Annalyse is 6 months old (last week).  She went this week for her 6 months check-up.  She weighs 15 lbs. 13.5 oz.  That puts her in the 50 percentile for weight and she is 45 percentile for height.  Miss Annalyse is a healthy little girl.  We started feeding her veggies and fruits this month.  Her favorites are green peas, sweet potatoes, and pears.  She usually eats cereal (with apples) for breakfast and some fruits and veggies for dinner.  I guess I will have to start getting some lunch down her sooner or later.  Annalyse is still nursing.  I cannot believe this!!!  I have made it 6 months.  My plan was to make it to the 6 month mark, so now (I guess) it will be 9 months.  Then I am finished!!!We aren't crawling yet, but she is rolling all over the place.  Sitting up is right around the corner.  If Olivia Grace has anything to do with it she will be sitting up on her own in a matter of days.  So we shall see.  One thing I would like to see change this month is to see this precious little girl SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!!!!  Yes she is waking up 2 times most nights.  Mommy is beyond tired.  Yes I am sure you are asking yourself, "shouldn't a pediatricians child be sleeping through the night after the first week?"  Well, WRONG!!!!  Not the case here.  Tired or not I am soaking up every second with Annalyse!!

Skating Rink

Last night we went skating!!!  Brent's clinic always has a family work party in the summer.  So they rented out the new skating rink in Fayetteville.  We had considered doing this for OG's birthday but after last night we definitely will stick to the swimming party.  Just a little too young!!  She did get the hang of it after she used this "walker" thing that they had for kids.  She took a couple of falls but she says that she loved it.  She asked if we could go after church today.  So it looks like we will be skating again!!

Swim Party

Last weekend we went over to some friends house from church for a family swimming party.  Olivia Grace had never jumped off of a diving board until that night and she loved it!!!  Her and Brent even tried some double jumping together.  I just had to posted this picture of the watermelon cake that Heather made.  It was so cute and festive!!!

4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend.  We started the weekend off with Colton and Chandlan staying the night with us.  Olivia Grace and the boys played non-stop as usual.  Then on Friday we headed to meet Papaw and Mimi at the lake.  Later that evening the rest of the Silvey clan and Gigi came to the lake.  That night we went out on the boat for our first fireworks show.  It was pretty good.  The best part was being on the lake at night.  Olivia Grace spent the night with the boys at the camper.  Saturday we woke up to rain (yuck for lake plans).  So Brent, Gigi, Annalyse, and myself went shopping until the rain stopped.  We then headed back out to the lake for our second fireworks show on the lake.  Sunday we went to church for a wonderful Hero's celebration.  It was awesome!!  Then back to the lake for some sun and fun (finally).  Sunday night we went to the CPH for our 3rd fireworks show.  This one was awesome!!!  There were 79 baptisms under the crosses and then a spectacular fireworks presentation.  We are so blessed to be a part of an awesome church!!  It was a busy weekend but fun.  I just didn't get my camera out until the end.  I'll do better next time.

Olivia Grace has been taking tennis lessons this summer.  She has enjoyed it so much.  Watching her makes me have tennis fever again.  So my plan is to start back this fall on a tennis league. 

Jump Zone

Happy Birthday Carter Wayne!!!  CW had his 4th birthday party a couple of weeks ago.  It was a Razorback party at Jump Zone.  All of the kids had a super fun time.  Happy Birthday sweet boy!  We love you!

Lake Weekend

Dukes, Aunt Ellen, and Jordan came to Fayetteville for Olivia Grace's dance recital.  We had a great visit with them.  After the dance recital we headed off to the lake.  It was a fun relaxing day!

Dance Recital

Well I am way behind on blogging.  Olivia Grace had her 3rd dance recital the day after we got back from the beach.  She did a great job!  Her group did 2 dances.  As always she had a huge "fan club" there!!  She still says that she doesn't want to go to dance next year.  But we were so proud of her.
