Happy 2nd birthday to my baby Hunter! Every day Hunter does something that cracks us up and this age is more fun than I thought it would be. While we have meltdowns here and there, Hunter is pretty good at listening and seems to be pretty mellow (toddlerwise). 
He is talking a LOT! A lot of what he says we don't understand, but some days he will spit out a full on sentence that we clearly understand.."mama I give baby wywy his milk" "mama I do it" "daddy I pooped" etc. 
I think he weighs about 27lbs (only 9lbs more than Wyatt!) and not sure how tall he is. We have his wellness check in September so we'll know more then. 
Hunter is a pretty good eater. I suppose we could increase his veggies but he loves all fruits, tofu, quinoa/rice, cheese, milk, raisins, and of course snacks. 
We havent started potty training yet, but plan to do it soon. With Wyatts arrival we didnt want there to be too much going on, but I think we have all adjusted and feel ready (kinda) to get him out of diapers. I will be honest though, I am not excited about the mess :/
Sleepwise, Hunter is still a superstar. He goes to bed at 7pm and wakes up at 6:30am. Sometimes he wakes a little earlier if he hears Wyatt, but even then he will hangout in his crib and chat with Elmo :)
We love you Hunter and so proud to be your parents. Happy happy birthday!

Six Months - Wyatt

How is this baby boy already halfway to one? Seems crazy to me. 
Wyatt is a sweet little (big) guy and he fits right in with our family. He still looks like a baby Hunter to me and I am always curious to see if they will look alike when they are older. He is very strong and has a mean grip. He is also extremely sturdy..his legs, feet, trunk are all very solid.
Loves: jumping in the johnny jumper, giggling, planking, scooting backwards, his pacifier, eating, napping, when we pretend to eat his belly (he giggles so hard), diaper changes, his swing
Dislikes: being hungry, dirty diapers, being in one place for too long
Weight: 18.5lbs (55th percentile)
Length: 90th percentile
We are at such a sweet spot in our lives right now and I am feeling so lucky these days. Hunter is really funny with all of his talking/energy and Wyatt is at my favorite baby age (giggly and mostly immobile).

Sunday was a sad day as my parents dog Parker passed away. He was my buddy in high school and though he had a wonderful (and long) life, we will miss him. 
I have a lot of good memories with Abbie and Parker: playing fetch on the golf course, car rides in my mom's VW Beetle, long walks, bed sharing, and always a warm welcome home filled with licks.

Say hi to Abbie for us, Parker boy <3

Park days

We love finding new parks and luckily our town seems to have a ton of them. I stumbled upon this one the other day and made a mental note to take the kids this weekend. 
These two love the swings!

Hunter's 2nd Birthday Party

Thank you to our friends and family for celebrating Hunter's 2nd taco-bar-birthday-fiesta! The kids had a blast in the pool and we had fun spending the day with those closest to us. Hard to believe my baby is TWO.

First tooth!
