Ivy's 2nd Beach Trip and 1st 4th of July

 For the 4th of July we went on our 2nd beach trip of the summer. We had a great time with Jake's family and my wonderful friend Megan! Ivy loves the beach and gets so excited when the waves splash her feet! Can't wait until next year to do it all over again!

7 Months

Sweet Ivy is 7 months old today! These have been the fastest most wonderful 7 months ever! She is in such a fun stage and has a lot of fun sitting up and playing. She has the cutest personality and adorable little (loud) voice. I'm thinking she is getting close to being able to pull up on things and crawl, and I think she could have a tooth any day. Right now she is figuring out how to scoot where she wants to go, but she is really only good at going backwards. We are having so much fun with our beautiful baby girl and I am soaking up and cherishing every day with her.
-Sitting up
-Chewing on everything (especially my face)
-"Talking" (dadas and yayas)
-Swinging (She laughs and squeals)
-Playing in her baby pool in the yard
-Bath time (no more baby tub, she sits up like a big girl now and plays with her rubber ducky)
-Popsicles (I don't let her have these but ever since I gave her a taste we can't eat them around her, oops)

Jake's First Father's Day

Words can not describe how thankful I am for my sweet husband! He is the most loving and caring dad to our sweet Ivy and it melts my heart to see how much they love each other! They love to play and laugh and it is so fun to see how excited she gets when he comes home from work!

I couldn't have asked for a better daddy for my sweet girl!

 On the Friday before Father's Day I surprised Jake with a yummy breakfast before work. I wanted to show him how much I appreciate all his hard work that allows me to stay home with baby girl!

Since Jake's favorite cereal is Reece Puffs, I decided to make him a chocolate and peanut butter Reece Puff cake! It was super yummy!
 We spent the weekend in Greenville with Jake's family and we had a wonderful time at the reunion and spending time with family!
