Old friend, Powell festival, and rolling over...

So Sky had to work thid weekend AGAIN!  However there is a silver lining...this is his last weekend!  In fact, he has two more second shift shifts after tonight!  He is going to a totally  normal schedule starting July 8!  Leave the house around 6am and get home around 5-7pm!  Hallelujah!  He also has Wednesday through Sunday off:)  I am so thrilled for him, the kids, and me!!!!

Thankfully, I had company this weekend!  One of my oldest friends came to visit.  Jaime spent Saturday night with us.  Grey absolutely adored her and really wouldn't leave her alone!  He even called her mama once!!!  We hung at the house a bit and then headed to Powell Fest.   Grey was in heaven with all the bounce houses!  He had no fear and jumped right in:)  He also loved the Hawaiian Shave Ice we treated him too!

The weather turned so we ended up heading to Kinsale for dinner.  It was a nice lil evening:)  

Today we just took a walk and hung around the house until Jaime left around noon.  SKy left for work and Mista Munch refused to nap so we headed to hang at Auntie Dani's for a bit and then went to the grocery store.  It was a lazy kind of day, but we were all pooped...so it was very nice.  The only thing missing with Sky!  Thankfully this is our last Sunday without him!

Since Tatum has about 5 patriotic outfits, I figured why not wear one today!

Grey testing out Greg's Harley!  Don't get any ideas!!!

In other news, Tatum is now able to roll from her back to her belly when she is fully swaddled.  I almost had a heart attack when I checked on her in the middle of the night.  She still can't roll from her belly to her back so it makes me nervous even though her neck/head is pretty strong.  I think we are going to try and swaddler her tonight but leave her arms free.  Wish us luck....so far Tator has been a wonderful sleeper!

And here are some pix from Friday...a couple of kiddos were happy it was FRIDAY:)

I love these chubby lil legs:)

I have been really bad at taking pictures lately for some reason...but I did manage to snap a few good ones over the last couple days.  Yesterday Sky was off and kept the kiddos.  I stopped at the park on my way home from work to find Grey throwing a frisbee and Sky and tator just chillin!
I mean can you even stand it!!!
 It was so nice to have Sky home last night.  We didn't do anything special....just grilled and hung out.  I forget what its like to have him around in the evenings!

Today the weather was blah this morning...rainy and what not.  So Grey and Sky went to the gym and then we all met Dani for a lil breakfast for lunch at Bob Evan's:)
Tator got a lil napperoo!

Then when we got home, she caught her only substantial nap of the day.  She was all about the kitties today....15 minutes here and there.

After Grey's nap, we headed to the pool.  Greyson was in heaven...Reed, Ireland, Ava, Rowen, Garrett, and Emerson were all there!  He is so independent this year!  It's great...especially because I have Tator to look after now too.  We got in the pool for a bit...she seems to enjoy it.

So Tator is starting to get out her swaddle consistently.  She ends up rolling onto her belly too!  The lil thing can roll from her back to her belly better than her belly to her back.  Talk about given her mama a heart attack!  Thankfully her lil neck is pretty strong and she can lift her head well.  We have been working on lots of tummy time...she is very close to rolling on her own.  I think her days of swaddling are limited:(  Where does the time go!?!??!

The last two days have been very ordinary...which is good!

She is still a happy girl!

And he is still wild as ever!

She loves being outside...

Just like her big bro!

And now she loves to play in her Jumperoo!

My lil ginham princess:)

Rollin over on Sunday Funday

Today we slept in and skipped church....if you call 6:30 sleeping in that is:)  But it was a lazy morning for a while.  Then Grey, Tator and I really let Sky sleep in and we went to the park and for a walk around the block.  It was blazin hot at 8:30am already!
This lil cherry sweetheart didn't mind a bit tho:)
 After we got back, we woke Sky up, I worked out, and we headed to Kinsale for a lil swim.
Tator missed the memo....she thought it was nap time!

Grey, on the other hand, was perty excited!

Where are my shades?
 After a couple hours, we headed home.  I did laundry and Grey took a much needed nap!  Then we just hung out outside.  Grey played with the neighborhood boy and Tator and I just lazed around in the grass!

My big girl rolled over from her back to her belly for the first time today.  She only did it once, but it won't be long before she is on the move.  Game is about to change:)

Busy Saturday

We had a great day today despite the fact that Sky had to work.  It is so great having my sister in the neighborhood:)  We woke up and started the day off with Grey's 3 year pictures and Tatum's 3 month pictures!

No, those weren't them...although, they are perty darn sweet!
My sweet girl in her "picture perfect" outfit!

I stole a photo!

All those pix tired her out and by the time we were done with Grey's "real" pix, there was no way he was going to let me take anymore!

After pictures, we headed up to our neighborhood pool!  Auntie Dani met us there:)


My lil lady in her yellow polka dot tankini:)

This evening we headed to a cookout at Dani's neighbor's house.  Dani and Greg were sweet enough to invite us and we had a lot of fun.  Grey was surrounded by about 10 girls between the ages of 6 and 10.  he was in heaven and had a ball! Tator was a handful, as usual!  (hardly).  Everyone commented on what a good baby she was...how did we get so lucky!?!??!
Sportin her yellow romper!

First Swim!

So the last few days have flown by for some reason!  It's hard to believe its Friday already, but I am not complainin!
Big ol bite of watermelon!

Yup, he is father's son:)

Tator loves to look at her reflection in the silver metal thingee in the tub....reminds me of Grey boy when he was just a babe !  Who am I kidding, he still admires himself!

Hey ma!

I like my bath!

Bright eyes:)

My beautiful baby girl:)

How bout my big girl sitting up better and better everyday!???!  (she still needs something to lean on and she face plants a lot, but you gotta start somewhere:))

What are you doin to me ma?

Oh, we're going swimming!

Swim Dance!

Just chillin on the lounge chair:)

A lil play time at the pool after his swim lesson!
 Yesterday evening was perfect (except for the fact that Sky wasn't with us).  We went to Kinsale and Grey had a swim lesson at 4:30....so Tatum and I got into the pool!  It was her first time....she loved it immediately...so much so that she passed out after about 10 minutes!
Grey slept like a champ and this lil long-lashed beauty was pretty pooped herself!

Someone is happy its Friday!

And someone else is no doubt up to no good!
