And Ruben has been working a crazy amount as he does every summer. The best times as a family are spent together before he goes. That is if no one is having an emotional meltdown. This morning was good.

And apart from sitting up, she has been moving herself off the carpet onto the floor.

She has also been working on her two bottom teeth for what seems like forever. worst. teether. ever. 

She is doing well with sitting up and moving around, she's of course still smiley and adorable.

We had our first family beach day last week-end when we had family come for a quick visit. Love the memories from this day. Penelope's first time touching the ocean...sorry it's not Caribbean sea baby.

The girls had so much fun, we went for ice cream after the beach and somehow ended up in a bus stop eating it LOL

one of the many faces of olivia... this kid cracks me up. Although we've been having a really rough time with her adjusting to being a big sister, she has a really great personality, so i am just waiting for this phase to pass. please god.

Last night Olivia held her own concert outside in the sprinklers. Elise opened the door - shook her head and went back inside. She had no interest to be freezing cold like her crazy sister
