Beach Getaway

This happened nearly a month ago, and I've been meaning to post it.  We got to go away for two nights to stay at a timeshare in Dana Point. It was sooooooooooooo nice to get away and be together as a family.  The only way for me to really feel like I have a break this time of year is to actually go away.  We hung out, walked the beach, swam a little at the timeshare, and just enjoyed being together. 

Laguna Beach
 Only my girly would find a leaf on the beach :)

 Exploring the tide pools

That's the timeshare on the right.  It's in Capistrano Beach, right across from the beach but the PCH went by it.  It was a nice little place. 

While not quite warm enough to "Beach it", Alayna still had fun running around for a bit.

We went down to the Oceanside Pier for a while.  The kids enjoyed the swings and we watched the sun set. 

 I love my three babies!!!!

My girl.... I don't know many kids who love seaweed... haha. 

Ahhhhh.  So nice to get away for a bit to the beach, our happy place :)  After this insane month I want to go back now!!!!

The Steps Are Fun

One of Everett's favorite activities is to play on the steps we have.  I love all of the funny faces he makes.  He cracks us up :)

Everett is 8 months old!

I did actually take these pictures on the day Everett turned 8 months old, I've just been too busy to post them!  Time is flying, especially since this time of year is INSANE for me.  My little guy is 8 months old and boy is he a go getter!  He's still happy, happy, happy, and so much fun.

At 8 months old Everett:
-crawls around the house
-can get up and down the big stairs we have
-is starting to eat table food
-loves pureed food... his favorites are sweet potatoes, carrots, and any kind of fruit.
-drinks 2 or 3 bottles of formula a day... sad :(  He wasn't getting enough milk from just me.  We are still nursing though.
-has been waking up at night again... grrrrr.  Usually just once, but I don't like it!  I don't want to have to sleep train again.
-is a great napper!  He takes two good naps a day and then a shorter third one most days as well.
-is a GO-GETTER!  This guy is always on the move and wants to be a part of all the action.  He never stops moving.
-starting to sit himself back up after he's been crawling
-trying to pull himself up to standing on things
-will still sleep in the Baby K'tan and the Ergo carrier if we are out and about and he is exhausted

7 months and so happy

Tomorrow Everett is eight months old, so I had to post a few pictures I took the other week while he was seven months.  He has been having fun being able to explore on his own now!  Gosh I love his smile....
