Today the crew headed out from Southport and the O''Connors to take Big Joe to Duke basketball camp. After touring Duke & North Carolina campuses they headed to the hotel where Caileigh SWAM ALL BY HERSELF!! Don''t believe me, watch the video!! Then it was over to Mary Alice & Pete (more cousins) for dinner!
Happy Birthday Aunt Molly!! Well its Day One at the beach for Daddy and Caileigh! Caileigh started digging her sandcastle right away while the others went boogy boarding. Daddy and Kevin went golfing and then everyone headed to the pool!
Mommy & Keira had a nice walk around the neighborhood and then Keira missed Mommy so much she got up every 2 hours until morning!
Well Daddy and Caileigh left for the beach at 4:00 this morning! They were both so excited! Can''t wait to hear all the details as they travel! Mommy & Keira will be spending lots of quality time together!
Well Keira had to go to the doctor today to check her head measurement (which was fine) but poor girl had an ear infection! Which explains all the crying last weekend. She was weighed with her clothes on BUT, she''s 15 lbs 8 oz and 25 inches already! Just to compare, at her 6 mos appointment, Caileigh was 14 lbs 2 oz! Keira is all thighs and head!
Happy Father''s Day! Caileigh and Keira are blessed to have the most caring and wonderful father and I''m blessed to have him as my husband! Daddy was certainly excited to get his presents (tickets to Les Miserables & a golf sweater) but more excited that he will be getting a new iphone before his big trip!
Poor Keira, she had a runny nose on Saturday and was really warm. Went to bed and woke around 12:30 and was up from there on out. Alternately between crying and sleeping. So unprepared we had no tylenol so Daddy had to run out and get some. Pretty sure she has a tooth coming in on top (we hope that''s it!). Sunday she was pretty miserable but no fever so fairly certain its teeth. I think she cried more in the past two days than she has her whole life. And loud too. Hoping for sleep for everyone!!
Our neighborhood had a garage sale today so thanks to Grandma & Grandpa, Caileigh sold some tiaras, Princess notebooks and lemonade!! She made $10 and said she was going to give it to the church ! Caileigh had her second swim lesson and jumped in and touched the bottom of the pool, went under every time and learned to paddle her way to the top! She did great!
Boy its been a crazy few days without Mommy but everyone (especially daddy) is so excited b/c the Pens won the Stanley Cup! Even better b/c we beat Detroit in Detroit! Our Michigan cousins aren''t happy but that''s ok b/c they beat us last year. I''ll update more when Mommy gets back in town !
This year mommy & daddy had to work so I went with Aunt Kelly, Aunt MK and all the kids. I know Mommy and Daddy were pretty nervous because last year all I would ride was the carousel but this year I was ready! I even told my Mom not to put ponytails in my hair because when I went one the roller coasters, they would blow out of my hair!
My favorite ride was the paratroopers but I liked the log jammer and all the kiddie rides! I even went on the raging rapids and got really wet! What a great day! Thanks Aunt Kelly and Aunt MK!
Finally a relaxing weekend with nothing to do! Well there''s always yardwork but it was actually nice to have some time to do it! Sure we still have our mulch pile but there''s only a yard or so left so that will spread by July at the latest!! We went to the pool Saturday and cooked out which was fun. It was Caileigh''s first swim lesson and she did great! Jumping in and going under water without a second thought!
Amazing considering the heater was broken and it was freezing!!
Sunday, Jack joined us and he and Caileigh had a blast! He has no fear and went down the slide without a second thought! Too bad the guard stopped us after and said they were too little :( ! Oh well!
Keira continues to enjoy the water and she likes sleeping at the pool even more!
Guess who''s 5 months old today! Poor Keira hasn''t been getting all the attention she deserves after Caileigh''s big day as a flower girl but she''s doing just fine. Getting up a bit more often than Mommy would like but those she is always glad to see me so that makes it better! She''s squealing and sqawking all the time. We put her in the highchair when we eat and she loves being at eye level! I think she''ll be ready for solids pretty soon!
