Letters From Nan

We received a wonderful gift in the mail about two weeks ago.  Nancy, or Nan as I call her created these oh so cute letters to spell out Caroline's name.  Nan is so creative and talented.  AND so super sweet!  I have only meet Nan once and only have known her for about two years but feel as though I have known her for a lifetime.  She used to work with Uncle Kye in Ohio and I think he would agree is a GREAT person! 

Nan had made letters for Lydia for her second birthday and I quickly put them up in her playroom. So, when I received Caroline's name I knew exactly were I would put them.  The girls will share so many great times in their playroom.  I think they look awesome and I just LOVE them!! Thanks Nan

Little Miss

Caroline turned FOUR months old on Thursday!  I just can't believe how fast the last couple of months have gone by.  We have been busy with summer activities, finishing things downstairs, and just spending family time together :)  Things have been going VERY smooth here.  Both girls are sleeping great.  After finally getting Caroline to sleep through the night...Lydia started getting up and walking around the living room.  It was strange.  After walking around for awhile she would come in our room...look at me and say "put me back to bed."  So, we finally decided that the baby gate needed to make an appearance.  Since then she has been staying put!! 

I took Caroline back to the doctor early in July.   I could tell her medicine just wasn't working.  I knew she wasn't a 12 lb. baby anymore.  In fact she was 15 lbs. 14 oz. and 26 inches.  She has really grown so we increased her dose a bit.  I also discussed with the doctor that I really wanted her to be done with this stuff if possible by six months.  Hopefully we can be successful!!
