August is 4 Months Old

I honestly feel like I was writing his 3 month blog post just last night... another month has FLOWN by. August is still the sweetest and happiest baby! He is getting better with his hands every day, rolling over, and loves to catch a glimpse of his little feet! When he sees them, he is instantly trying to get them into his mouth. The jumper is a definite favorite and he is a maniac in it already! He really does adore his big sister who can always make him laugh.
We went to the doctor today for his well check.  He weighs 15lbs, 3oz and is 24 inches long. Growing boy!  He is fighting off a little cold that Teagan brought home from her first week at Preschool...and so it begins.  Even with a runny nose and watery eyes, he won't stop smiling! I love him to pieces. I love that he loves to cuddle & hug me...please just STOP growing up so quickly!

August Starts Swim Lessons

This month August started swim lessons at Deep Blue Swim School in Long Beach! He goes once a week for a 20 minute lesson. He has been twice now and absolutely loved it the first time, and cried a lot the second time. Big sister Teagan was very excited to share her teacher with her little brother and tells him all about how much fun it is to swim! Let's hope he enjoys the water as much as Teagan!

I realize that I am extremely biased, but seriously.... HOW adorable is he?!?!!!

Teagan's First Day of Preschool

I'm not sure how this day came so quickly, but my little Teagan started preschool today!  She had been super excited for this day to come, but was a little nervous when she got up this morning.  I'm pretty sure Renny and I were more nervous than Teagan, by far!  The first day was nice because it was only for an hour and fifteen minutes and we got to stay the whole time.  Wednesday is the first real school day and I can't promise that I won't shed a tear ;)  Teagan had a fun time checking out the classroom.  She spent a lot of time playing with the baby dolls, looking thru the sand box, and making play dough.  Before it was time to go, they had some listening time where they each sat on a mat and were dismissed to their parents when the teacher called their name...this is what Teagan did not like.  She saw us walking toward the door and ran after us crying :(  We talked on the car ride home and Teagan said she was excited to go back again and play on the slide, but that she didn't want me to leave.  Hopefully, it will go ok on Wednesday because I'm not sure this mama is strong enough for her tears!  We ended the morning with a big family lunch at Ruby's!

August's Three Month Pictures!

THANK YOU, Erin Tukua Photography, for another amazing session!!!! I CANNOT get over how great these photos are! What a handsome little man I have :)

Labor Day Bonfire 2011

This Labor Day weekend, Stephanie and her boyfriend Jimmy thought it would be fun to have a family bonfire over at Bolsa Chica State Beach.  They went and staked out a fire pit at 6am on Friday morning for fear that the beach would be packed by the time we could all get you will see in the pictures, this ended up being completely unnecessary as the beach was pretty empty! Despite the really strong winds, we had a great time together! Teagan had so much fun collecting sea shells, feeding the birds, watching the water, and tasting a s'more for the first time. She did, however, very much miss her Uncle Robby & Auntie Inessa who were unable to make it this time...she LOVES getting some playtime in with her uncle :)  I'm not sure how August felt about the night as a whole, but I don't think he enjoyed the sandstorm.  Here are some pictures from the evening, and THANKS to Steph & Jimmy for planning!


Fun with Paint

One day last week, I thought it would be fun to paint using an idea I found on Pinterest.  I blew up some balloons for Teagan to use rather than paint brushes or fingers, and put her table outside so she could go at it! She had a blast :)

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

Teagan has been asking if we could fly a kite at the beach for quite some time now, so last weekend we stopped at the kite store on Main Street and walked down to the sand. She picked out a Monarch Butterfly kite. Teagan had a great time!
