Finally the warm weather has arrived and decided to stay! We have been enjoying the sunshine and have stayed very busy. I thought that having a baby might slow us down a little and make me stay home more, but that has not happened. We are as busy as ever, and Cade just tags along. He is a very chill and flexible baby.
So here is what we have been up to this month of May.
Callie loves when Cade comes to wake her up in the morning and they usually hang out in her "big girl bed" together for a little bit.
Callie has been "winging" so much that she is actually getting blisters on her arm and leg from the swing. But she loves it! She asks to go to the park every day - sometimes several times a day.
Cade weighs about 10 pounds already (at 5 weeks) - which is what Callie weighed at 3 months!
Callie loves Firehouse and we make it there for lunch almost every week. She gets very excited when we pull in the parking lot and she always asks for a hat.
Bryan has had a crazy busy month at work, but he was able to get away for a few hours one Saturday to go to the pool at Hampton Lake. Callie is still getting comfortable in the water. She doesn't want to go in very far. Instead, she likes to hang out in the shallow end and fill her buckets up with water. But every time we go, she is a little more brave!
Cade can hit the toys with his hands and the ball with his feet - which is something that took Callie a while to be able to do just because she was so much smaller. He is big enough to stretch to both of the toys at the same time. He also loves tummy time and would actually prefer to be laying on his stomach than his back.
Mommy loves naptime! Usually our house is very quiet from about 3 until 5 and it so wonderful! I am very blessed to have 2 children who sleep so well.
We have continued our Friday lunch tradition with Mama D and PawPaw and make the trek each week to the island to go to the Yacht Club. Callie is treated like a princess and she loves it!
There are a few days that we just play at home and relax. Callie's favorite thing to do right now is get all of the nail polish out of my bathroom cabinet and put them in her purse. Such a girl! Cade spends a lot of time in his rock 'n play sleeper which is awesome.
Gotta love the late nights. It is always a challenge to stay awake until the 11:30 feeding. Cade has a few great nights a week and a few not so great nights. He can sleep 4 or 5 hours at a time, but he doesn't always do that! I think he went through a growth spurt this week - he was up almost every 3 hours ready to eat. Hopefully we can move past that and get some more sleep!
Callie Grace is growing up so much. She is definitely a little girl now - not my baby anymore!
We went to the pool at Baynard Park one morning with a few friends, and again Callie was happy playing with her toys in the shallow end.
For Memorial Day Weekend, Auntie Em and Aunt LaLa came down. We all had a fun-filled long weekend, and Callie was loved on excessively!
Cade got lots of hugs and kisses also. :)
On Memorial Day, me and the two kiddos went to the pool with the Ussery clan. Cade took a nap in his sleeper in the shade, and Callie played with the boys. It was a fun and relaxing afternoon!
I can't believe May is over already. Football season will be here before I know it! Callie and I (mostly me) have made a list of fun things to do together this summer. I don't know when we will have time to do all of these things!
I will put up more pictures as we check things off the list!
