6 Months

I can't believe it has been 6 months since our sweet River girl was born. I'm a little late on posting this, she turned 6 months on November 6th. I still can't believe I went my whole pregnancy not knowing what I was having! God has blessed us abundantly with this sweet soul. I told my hubby recently that two of my dreams came true, 1- I always wanted a chubby baby and 2- I prayed my whole life that God would give me a girl.
She is still waking on most nights 1-2 times to eat. I'm crossing my fingers that its just a growth spurt?!? I'm hoping she gets the hang of sleeping through the night soon, that would be nice. Not that Hunter lets us sleep, that's a whole different story. We started giving her solids this past month, She will only eat baby oatmeal but not rice cereal. She likes avocados and munching on apples, pears, bread, arrowheat cookies with her two bottom teeth. She loves to sit and play on the floor and gets on her hands and knees to rock back and forth but then gets frustrated because she can't go anywhere. Her two favorite boys are her brother, Hunter, and her Pa (Daddy), anytime they walk into the room her face lights up. She is a social butterfly but also plays independently very well.
Its bittersweet watching her grow so quickly knowing she won't be a baby much longer but I'm also so excited to see the girl she will become.

A day with Thomas

Yesterday was probably one of Hunter's favorite days in his 2 short years of life. He got to see Thomas the train come to life! My mother in law treated Hunter to a day with Thomas up in Perris CA at the Orange Empire Railway Museum. They had a warehouse full of vintage train cars to check out plus the Thomas exhibit. Hunter had his first ride on a train and it wasn't just any old train, it was Thomas!
These first few pictures are Hunter seeing Thomas for the first time, I think he was in shock. 
Thank you so much Nonnie, Hunter loved experiencing this.

Kids shared room

I really love how the kids room is coming together, I still have a few small projects to complete. I kept a woodland/forest theme with mostly neutrals except for a few girly colors on River's side of the room. If it were up to me I wouldn't have so much brown in the room but its not like I could go out and buy all new furniture and theres not a ton of color options in blackout curtains. My handyman hubby built Hunter's bed and helped Hunter pick out his comforter (also not my choice, but its not all about me anyway). I painted the trees on the wall by Hunter's bed and also made their H&R string art.
They have been sharing a room for a couple months now. I was so nervous about putting them together but it has actually helped them both sleep better. Hunter doesn't come out as often, I think he was feeling left out with her in our room. They sleep with a sound machine on and I usually put them together for naps which works out most of the time.

Life Lately~Fall 2014

In the blink of an eye it's already the end of 2014. Crazy how fast a year can go by, especially when your busy and boy have we been busy. River will be 6 months old tomorrow and I feel like we just brought her home from the hospital yesterday! Hunter turned two in August and just loves being an older brother.
I had so much fun making the kids costumes for Halloween, Hunter was Peter Pan and River was Tinkerbell. I've also been busy taking photos again, so if your interested shoot me an email.
Since I have a bad cold/cough and my brain is mush, that's about all I can think to write about. So here's a bunch of cute pictures of my babies.
I will say how excited I am for the Holidays coming up!! This is my absolute favorite time of the year!
