My sister Angie and her family (John, Kylie, and Matthew) came for a visit last weekend. We had so much fun while they were here! Many LATE nights playing rockband and hanging out talking. The kids are SO cute together. Atticus loves his cousins. Both Kylie and Matthew were so sweet with Harper, and wanted to hold her as much as they could...although they did have to fight their mom on that one(she wanted Harper all to herself). Its a good thing April wasn't visiting too, or there may have been some punches thrown over who got to hold Harper. LOL! Thanks for coming and playing, we miss you guys already!
PS: Hey Austin, how was your day?

Harper had her two month check-up and immunizations today. Our little girl is a whopping 11 lbs and 15 oz. She still hasn't grown very much but is gaining weight like a champ! The Dr. said she is doing great,both health and developmentally. Harper is a silly girl, when the Dr. was checking her mouth with a tongue depressor she was laughing! Dr. McBride said that she has never had a baby laugh while doing that. Then came the shots...lets just say there was NO laughing going on then. LOTS of screaming. So sad.
(Atticus is the potty master!)
While we were at the Doc's we weighed and measured Atticus. He is 39 inches and weighs 35 pounds. He was excited, only one more inch and he can go on Star Wars (Star Tours) at Disneyland. Hopefully he will get that inch by the time we go in Sept. EVERY time we go to Disneyland he is so sad because he is not tall enough! Atticus is FINALLY mastering the potty! YAY for only one child in diapers! Way to go Atticus.

(One of the bigger ones and my dads baldness.)
This year we did 4th of July at our house! We were suppose to BBQ but the BBQ-er was having some problems (so sad). So we grilled the burgers inside and got the BBQ-er working for the hot dogs. It turned out to be a lot of fun, with some rockband on the PS3 and then TONS of fireworks! That little tank firework was so cute, it had wheels and rolled and then started sparkling and then it would fire a "shot". Towards the end everyone was getting creative...Sara and Chris were taping some little ones together to make a longer sparkle. Thanks everyone for coming we had a good time. We love our family and friends, and missed those that couldn't be there! Happy 4th of July.
(Ready to play with daddy&Atticus.)
Today(the 4th) Harper is 2 months old. Time has gone by so fast! Our little girl is growing like crazy. Her 2 month check up and immunizations is on the 9th so I will post her stats then. Harper has been accomplishing so much. Holding her head up, trying to roll over, SLEEPING 8 hours a night!, getting teeth, and the list goes on. She is all smiles and talkative almost all of the time. When she is hungry oh man will you know, the girl loves her food and has a hard time waiting even a second! She still loves the shower and bath. She also loves her brother and he loves her. Atticus is an amazing big brother, we love him so much. We love our little Harper and are so glad that she is a part of our family.

Last weekend we saw Wall-e. Seriously it was such a great movie! Atticus was glued to the screen, and now wants all things Wall-e. Harper slept in the baby bjorn up until about 30 min left of the movie, and then just took a bottle and didn't fuss at all. So,Keith and I got to watch the whole movie too. Wall-e got a 96% on rottentomatoes.com which is REALLY good! Heres one of the tag line things,
What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? WALL-E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for. I don't want to say to much, because I am one of those people who can't describe a movie without giving too much away. Just take my word for it you and your kids will LOVE the movie. I even cried towards the end.
Maybe Keith will post a review on his blog...
