{ONE}
Little H had her 6 month check-up on Thursday.Well, more like an almost 7 month check-up. Weight: 17.5 lbs  Length: 25.5 inches

She had to get three vaccines and take an oral vaccine. I'm sure all the moms reading this know that awful feeling you get as it's happening.

School starts in just a little over three weeks here. Doesn't summer go fast? We are still waiting on the letter and supply list, but I am already looking for good deals. 

{FOUR}

See that mess? That is exactly what our kitchen table looks like right now. I have to catch up on scrapbooking or just start pitching stuff. I still have stuff to scrapbook from Sophia's birth....seven years ago.

See below? It's a milestone no one mentions. Going shopping with no carrier. Yes.
 








THE GOOD LIFE BLOG




3 on Monday...

So, last Friday I tried to do a "5" post, but getting photos to load was INSANE. So I stopped at 3 and just saved it. Well, I decided to post it anyway. Seriously some random stuff, but here it goes:


1. Little H. vs. Green  Beans
She makes some super funny ( and cute) faces every time she eats, but green beans were a whole other story! She gagged, did a little shiver and would push the spoon away.


2. Burt Shavitz died.
Don't know who this is?  Well, I bet you do. It's the "Burt" behind Burt's Bees. I'm sure plenty of you would recognize his face from the products. He seemed to be a creative, down to earth person that was also introverted. And I have a special place in my heart for introverts.

3. Blog Lovin'
OK, I'm light years behind. I finally downloaded the Blog Lovin' app. Love it. I also added a button on my blog. Yep. Go. Follow me now.



Dear Sophie

Dear Sophie,
You are 7 years old now! It is hard to believe how fast you have grown. Ever since you turned 5 I have said that you are no longer a baby, but a real kid. This year it is even more evident than ever. You are spirited, smart and love to be around people. 
It doesn't feel like it has been 7 years since I first met you. 

You got a 4-wheeler for your birthday. I think
I am going to get grey hair.
Starting and finishing kindergarten this past year was a breeze for you. I NEVER take for granted how much you like going to school. I hope that you continue to enjoy it and make wonderful memories with lots of good friends.

While you were 6 you:
  • Started t-ball
  • Took swim lessons that included diving off a diving board (we now know you are really scared of diving)
  • Took dance lessons and performed in a recital
  • Started kindergarten and loved it!
  • Became a big sister 
  • Moved into a new house
That's a lot of big stuff. I look forward to seeing all the amazing things you do this year. 
I love you lots!
Mom
