Summer 2012 - Playing Catch Up

This summer, blogging has clearly fallen at the very bottom of my list.  For the most part, I haven't really even thought about updating, but in preparing for a new baby I realized how much I do love being able to look back and see what Millie was doing at certain points in our lives.  It has been a great "baby book" and I hope that I can keep it up for this second baby girl!!

Since it has been so long, updating seemed extremely overwhelming.... But now I am OVER 40 weeks pregnant.  The due date for baby #2 has come and gone.  Everything is washed.  The house is somewhat clean.  I am packed.  Car seat installed.... But still no baby.  Now we are just waiting....

So while I wait, I will do a GIANT update that sums up our summer.  

We had such a great summer and can't believe that it is over!
We did lots of fun things like:

- Going to the North Carolina Zoo!!  

Millie loved all the animals and still talks about all that she saw.


- We've had fun picnics in the yard...


We love being in our front yard...


...can you tell?


- The BEACH!
 It wouldn't be summer without going to the beach!!  
Oh how different this year was from last year when the girls were just crawling.

These girls were so cute together and are true beach bums!


- We loved playing in the water and sun...


... and we loved playing with all the fun cousins!  What a crew!


We danced...


We boogie boarded...


and we TRIED to take family pictures...


Thankfully we got one.


...and we took tons of pictures like last year's photoshoot.  I can't even begin to post them all, but here are a few...



After returning from the beach, we had to beat the heat in the hose...


Its funny to see how much she changed since last summer in the hose.



The rest of the summer was document via iphone pics.  We did lots of:

Going to the Children's Museum...


and hanging out being silly....



Now...we are just waiting...


Hopefully the next post will be all about the new baby!!!
