Our sweet Josephine Jayne is two months old today, and she isn't so teenie weenie anymore! This girl is growing like a weed! She gained over two pounds in the last month alone and weighs slightly more than her sister did at the same age! She is such a happy girl who is always smiling at us. We are loving hearing her coo in the sweetest little voice. Speaking of her voice, though, she also knows how to use it when she is hungry! This girl can be LOUD, but she usually only cries or screams when it's past time to eat... which is totally okay with me! We have a great nursing relationship, and I hope we can continue that for a while. Josephine sleeps in a co-sleeper in our bed still, but she's getting kicked out super soon to a bassinet right by her mommy's head. Hopefully this will help her daddy sleep a little better before he starts flying again but still allow her mommy to reach her easily for middle of the night feeds! She wakes up two or three times to eat, depending on the night, but she always goes right back to sleep afterward. Josie hates tummy time and either screams, flips herself over immediately so she doesn't have to deal with it, or falls asleep on her piano playmat. This past month has been MUCH more calm than her first month since we're all moved in to our home in Florida, so it's been nice getting into a routine with her and just being able to enjoy her! She LOVES staring at her big sister if she's anywhere nearby, and she likes spitting up on her parents. We finally came up with the super embarrassing nickname that will probably stick with her for quite some time - just like Annabelle is Wannabelle when she cries... Josephine is now knows as Grossephine when she spits up or has a diaper blow-out! She's going to hate us for sure in the future! Josie still loves being worn in the Solly wrap, and thank goodness for that! We are able to go out and about all the time because she just snuggles on my chest or watches people around her. Her neck control is crazy strong - she held her head up for an entire 45 minute TV show her parents watched the other night just staring at us and the pictures on our wall.

This BIG GIRL is excited to share that she has been pacifier free for three nights in a row! If you know her, you know this is a HUGE deal, as she was most certainly a paci addict! We wanted to take it away back when she turned two, but with her baby sister arriving soon after (and using the same pacifiers) and our big move, we didn’t want to make it any rougher on her than it should be. This picture is from the first morning after, hence her one finger up for one night paci-free, but I was too scared to post it then in case it was a fluke and didn’t want to jinx us! We are so proud of this sweet BIG GIRL! Next up: potty training... whenever she decides she doesn’t want to fight us on it anymore! 🙌🏼 #biggirl #pacifree #pacifierfree

We had a blast visiting Fort Walton Beach this weekend (even though it was freezing!) and spending time with friends before they move to Utah!

I think she’s dreaming about eating... which is about the only thing she’s been doing the last couple of days 🤱🏻❤️

I never thought I’d call myself a dance mom, but here we are. At least I’m the mom of the cutest tiny ballerina ever! Annabelle had her first ballet class this afternoon and had a blast! 🎀 #dancemom #tinydancer #tinyballerina

This handsome guy officially started B Course today for the F-22 Raptor! This has been a long time coming... this was the dream all along! He won’t be flying the jet for a little while still, but today is the official first day for his class. This is hard work, dedication, passion, and devotion. This is what all of that looks like personified. He chased his dream for YEARS, and it paid off. I am so proud of him and know he’s going to rock these next nine months! ✈️🇺🇸

2017 sure was full of surprises for us! We had no idea we’d welcome another beautiful baby girl into our world... we had no idea Dan would be chosen to fly his dream jet and we’d move to Florida... we had no idea Annabelle would be the perfect big sister to Josephine... we sure are blessed. 2017 consisted of some small travels (San Antonio, Dallas/Ft. Worth, KCMO)... nothing huge, but that’s okay! Annabelle took swim lessons and went to her first movie in a theater (Trolls). We celebrated three years of marriage (and eight years together). Dan graduated from pilot training. I turned 30. We celebrated Annabelle’s second birthday and welcomed Josephine a couple months later. We moved from Texas to Florida. What a year 2017 was! But I’m looking forward to making 2018 a pretty awesome year too!

Our first trip to the beach, and it was raining and cold enough for a jacket and hat! (also cold enough for socks and shoes, but hey, ya gotta get your toes in the sand, right?) Glad I still had this hat (from @tendrsquiddles) in my bag (didn’t think we’d need it in Florida)!
