Elsie is 3 Months Old

 Time is absolutely flying past.  Elsie is getting so big.  She's so cute with her chubby cheeks and thigh rolls.  She is already wearing clothes that Fiona wore when she was 9 months old!  That says more about how tiny my big girls were, but seems crazy to me.  She is such a happy baby!
 These pictures were taken before she discovered her great hatred for the carseat.  Recently, she has decided that she HATES her carseat.  To the point that I often have to pull over when we are driving places because she screams this awful scream and often makes herself choke and gag.  She sometimes will tolerate it now if I give her a blankie to snuggle.  She likes to hold a blankie and suck her thumb.

Chilling in the swing at Nana's house.  She can't have a swing at home because Callie likes to "help" her swing. 

 The big girls are still in love with the baby.  They are very good at keeping her entertained and still beg to hold her daily.
 She loves sitting in the Bumbo seat at the table, while we eat dinner.
Elsie has the best temperament.  She is so content with life and loves to giggle and flirt.  She already scoots herself around on her back and is definitely unsafe to leave unattended on top of anything.  I found her rolled over onto her tummy the other day, but I'm pretty sure Callie helped her do that.

We are sure blessed to have such a sweetie pie in our family :)

4th of July in Pictures

 My girls on the 4th of July
We went to a small parade in my parents' neighborhood.  Callie had a cookie with red frosting.  Can you tell? 
 Elsie slept while we walked in the little kid parade.
I made the kids some ribbon wands for the kids to wave in the parade.  Liam was much more interested in tossing them.
After the first parade we went to watch the Field Club parade.

Big Girl Date

We had been seeing the previews for the new Disney Brave movie for quite some time.  Fiona was dying to see it and had been asking since the first previews came out.  I thought the movie looked pretty cute so I was excited to take her to the movie.  She had only been to the movie theater one other time for Beauty and the Beast with Nathan and he said it was a disaster because she talked through the whole thing and wouldn't sit still.  It had been a couple of months so I wasn't too worried about it.  We invited my sister, Maura, and my BFF, Eileen, to go with us and left the little girls home with their Daddy.

Fiona was super excited. She talked about it all morning.  She looks a little tired because I actually had to wake her up from a nap to go.
Fiona did great at the movie.  There were a few places in the movie with bears that she got a little nervous about.  She also drank an entire glass of pop during the movie, so she was kind of bouncing off the walls by the end of the movie.

After the movie we walked over to Jones Bros. Cupcakes for a special treat.  Usually when we go there the girls split a cupcake, but since Callie wasn't there I let her have one of her own.
She was pretty excited about the cupcake.  It looked like a cupcake bomb went off under her chair.

She was literally bouncing around after all that sugar.

Fiona wore her Merida hair clip to the movie.  She was super excited about it.
