Let's Play Catch Up Cuz I'm a Slacker!

Oh snap! It's been over a month hasn't it? Wow, I guess I've been choosing to nap instead of blog while the kids are sleeping during the week. Let's see what's happened since then?

Tatum turned one month way back in June and I decided to take pictures of her next to her puppy every month to see how big she grows. Here's her one monther...
I can't believe that this weekend she will be 2 months already! I know it's cliche, but time really does fly, especially if you're not paying attention...

Next up came Father's Day. It started off with me having wicked heartburn, so much so that I woke up and made Tony breakfast in bed. Spencer helped.
We then spent the day hanging out and then went over to my brother's house for some TASTY brisket! It is officially my new favorite meat! My niece Ryllie was absolutely infatuated with Tatum and wanted to hold her all day.
Them we went outside before we parted ways for some family photos...
Good times had by all! I can't believe my Spencer has grown so much! Just look at him! Ridiculousness... He is becoming such a sweet big brother. He is always protecting Tatum. One day one of his little friends was trying to give her a kiss and Spencer stiff-armed her saying, "No! That's my baby Tatum!" Kind of mean, but you should have seen it, way cute.

So I keep remembering certain shots I took of Spencer when he was a baby and I keep wanting to do the same with Tatum at the same age to compare. Here's one that I thought of... both in their little swings... Spencer is actually a couple weeks older in this photo, but you'd never know with my chunky monkeys.

Everyone says how similar Spencer & Tatum look, but to me they look completely different. Tatum may resemble Spencer when her eyes are shut, but as soon as she opens them she looks completely different. She has these big beautiful, blue/green eyes right now. Here she is right after bath time, which happens to be one of her favorite times. She never as calm as she is when she's sitting in the water. And seeing as she's been getting plenty of baths lately she's been rather content. She has a terrible case of heat rash all over her face & head so I'm constantly trying to keep her clean and cool. And since everytime I leave her with Tony she cries and sweats it just keeps spreading. I don't know what it is. He is such a good daddy, but as soon as I'm out of the house, she lets him have it! Way to stay strong Tony...

I'm sure they're still changing colors, but I can't help but stare at them whenever they're open...
Let's see, what else has happened? Tony took this week off and we went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium yesterday. Spencer spent the entire time we were there asking to see the sharks. It was super cute. As soon as we saw the sharks, he was like, okay, what else is there? By then we'd seen everything there was to see, but Spencer wasn't ready to be done. He was so excited, but Tatum slept through the entire event.

Which catches us up to today. After our roadtrip to the coast yesterday we decided to lay low today. We cleaned the house and just hung out. This evening we decided it was a nice night to roast some smores. This was Spencer's first time and he loved it! After his first smore he didn't want to eat anymore, he just wanted to roast the mallow in his safari hat.

So I guess that about sums up the last month. I promise I'll be more diligent about posting to keep everyone up to date. I guess the month of June just got away from me!

Tatum is getting so big! Looks like you had a busy but good month. I don't blame you for not blogging much lately, the combination of a small baby and toddler eats up pretty much all of my spare time. If one doesn't need me the other one does!

You can't feel pressure to blog. That takes all the fun out of it! It's your blog. Your schedule.

We were going to do the roasting food in the backyard thing the other day too. It was 'National Camp In Your Backyard Day' last weekend. But, we never got around to it. Looks like you had fun!
