It may look like I"m out of control...and sometimes I feel like I am. But not being in control all of the times makes for some pretty cute pictures.
First I left the room for 30 seconds and I come back to find that Adelee had made Gordie's head into a sippy cup table. Later that day Auntie Jen was over (helping me out all day! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!) and she let Adelee decide what bathing suit she wanted to wear, turns out she wanted to wear both of them (she has 2 pairs of bottoms on too).
She loves her flip flops from her beach bum Uncle Mark...but she can only keep them on for a few minutes, she's getting better though.
Life sure is fun!

Adelee and Gordie are doing great! Both are going so fast and learning so much! Adelee decided she had to have dolly while eating dinner the other night (not the best idea, but I do what I have to to keep some sanity around this place!) It was so cute she was patting dolly's back, giving her drinks from her sippy cup while she was eating with her fork (and fingers)...what a multitasker. Meanwhile I'm eating my dinner while nursing Gordie.
Then she taught herself how to climb in and out of the high chair.
Gordie is doing great at night and takes pretty good morning naps, but the afternoon naps are tough. He will sleep as long as he is in my arms. The temps have been in the upper 90's so I'm blaming it on the heat in his bedroom, so we'll hope for a cool down and good afternoon naps in the near future!

We are having so much fun! Gordie has started smiling at Adelee and it is adorable! For those of you who don't know yet...we are packing up to move! Adelee, Gordie and I are moving to Michigan for 10 weeks while Chuck continues his travels with work. So Adelee and I have been working hard to pack up the apartment ( you see her helping decorate the boxes) the other photo is her trying on her gift from Daddy when he got back from Hawaii. See all of you Michiganders soon! We look forward to spending the fall with old friends and our wonderful family!

We had a wonderful long weekend with Auntie Anna! We went on a cupcake tour of LA (see Anna's blog...Triple the Love), went to the Getty Center and played in the beautiful gardens (see Anna's blog), the Skirball Center to see the amazing Noah's Ark Exhibit!, went to Malibu to introduce Gordie (and Anna) to good friends, and relaxed!!
Gordie had his 2 month doctor visit and is doing GREAT!
Weight: 13 lbs 1 oz... 75%
Height: 23 3/8 inches...50th
Head: 15 1/2 cm...25%
He is cueing, smiling and even laughing a bit! He does good with belly time (but he does sleep on his belly so that helps!) He is what the doctor calls a "happy spitter". He spits up a lot, but doesn't seem bothered by it! (I'm the one who has to change his clothes and my clothes several times a day!) What a love! Adelee still loves him and helps take good care of him!
