This past weekend was super crazy with a friend's wedding, in which Joe was a groomsman. I have some pics to post of that later. In the meantime, I have some pics I have had accumulating in a folder for posts that I might eventually get around to. I figured I might as well throw them all together for an update or they may never make it on the blog.
I can't believe I haven't posted much this summer other then a few recipes! Here's my mom hanging out with the girls on Father's Day. The were swimming in her little baby pool and playing with the "fishing poles".

I just love this shot.
I have had great luck with my herbs this summer! It's been so nice walking right out to the back deck to grab what I need to toss in with dinner. I had been waiting until we moved again and could have an actual garden, but who knows when that will be. Container herbs work just as well!!
Currently, I am growing basil, parsley, thyme, oregano and cilantro.
This little dude has been hanging out on our little deck for weeks now. He's super cute and tiny (only about 3/4" long). The munchkin points and yells "Froggy!! Ribbit! Ribbit!!" She then proceeds to squat down and hop around like a frog. It was so hard to get a decent pic, but I'll share anyway.
I just really can't believe it's August already. I have started planning the Munchkin's 2 year birthday party with will be on Sept 10th. Two Years! I just can't believe it's been that long already.
She picks up so much new stuff all the time. She's been talking in sentences now and uses words to describe things instead of only sticking to mostly nouns. She can point out letters of the alphabet, colors, shapes, and can count to 12 all on her own. I am sure this is all typical for her age, but to me she's a super genius! Only a year ago, she could barely talk at all! It's just so crazy.
When she does something she wasn't supposed to, she'll say "sorry guys!", even if it's only me. She loves pointing to the food on my plate and saying things like "those are mommy's eggs" or to my seat, "that's mommy's seat". Some parents count how many words their kids have, but I am too lazy for that. I wouldn't even know where to begin. Her vocabulary exploded so fast, I don't know if I could even guess within a decent range at this point. She's definitely a talker. She LOVES puzzles. It's one of her favorite things to do. She'll ask me to get them down for her and we'll sit at the kitchen table and put them all together. She likes to hold up her cup and say "cheers" until you clank your drink with hers. She is still only drinking water and milk and loves them both dearly. She is a cheese freak, just like her momma. She also loves her eggs. Her other faves are, salmon, tacos (which is really just a bowl of seasoned grassfed ground beef, cheese, avocado, tomatoes and some sour cream), avocado, broccoli, pretty much any green vegetable, carrots, mushrooms, any she especially loves berries. We got pretty lucky with this one actually, she'll eat just about anything I give to her.
I feel like she gets cuter and cuter every day. How is that even possible?
I hope everyone else is enjoying their summer so far!
