Galveston 2011

The beach!! 

We are blessed to have some family that has an amazing beach house in Galveston.  And better yet, they let their friends and family take over borrow it :)

We love the beach house.  It's easy with kids because we can really spread out and relax, cook meals there and its such an easy drive.  Since Layla was just 3 months we needed easy.  And the best part was is eating breakfast on the back porch while feeling the ocean breeze.  Heaven!!

First family of 5 beach picture!!  Emma and Layla's first trip to the beach.  Grace went when she was about 7 months old so this was her second trip!

This is pretty much how Layla spent everyday at the beach... sleeping.  I don't know what it was about the beach but she zonked for hours every day.  It must have been the sound of the ocean.  It practically lulled me to sleep everyday too!  My sweet friend let us borrow this great tent like thing for kids to protect her from the sun.  Totally recommend for anyone heading to the beach with little ones.  

 We were also thrilled that we had lots of visitors while we were there.  My parents joined us for a weekend... so nice to have an extra set of hands.  Our good friends, Matt and Meagan, and their twins, Ryan and Quinn also joined us for a day.  So fun!!  Can't wait till all these little guys get bigger... friends for sure!  

My 3 girlies... shopping in downtown Galveston.  Gotta get some tshirts!

Last day at the beach!! 
 My Layla bug in her sailor outfit... how cute is this?!!
 My Emmy enjoying ice cream! 
 And my Gracie!  Getting so big!!
Can't wait till next year!!

Layla is 4 months!!

Happy 4 months baby girl!

Your 4 months stats:
Height: 25.25 inches (85%)
Weight: 15lbs 13.5 inches!! (91%)
Head: 16.5 inches (76%)

I love when your monthly birthdays are on a Sunday!  So fun to show off your church clothes :)

 You have been looking at those toes for weeks now and finally this month you were able to reach out and grab them!  You were so happy!!

Have I told you how much you love the bath?  You love it!  I think once you are big enough to sit you will love splashing in the tub with your big sisters!
 You have really started to get on a schedule this month.  Taking about 3 naps and sometimes still cat napping here and there.  Sort of how it goes when you have 2 big sisters that like to be on the go! And look at this sweet face! 
 And I had to show off your sweet bloomers!  Love them Hailey... although she will probably need a bigger size in a matter of no time!
 This month you have been working on rolling.  You have only rolled from your belly to your back a few times.  But your doctor just says your laid back... and I agree.  I sort of like that I can still put you in one place and you will still be there when I get back :)

You big sisters love to show you how to roll... will try to post a video of that soon!  It's really cute!
 Happy 4 months baby girl! 
 And I couldn't leave out the big sisters!  This is a normal scene in our house...
