Last week Belle and Luna had a lot of visitors! From my grandmother, then my dad, our family friend Marie and her 2 grand-daughters and then my friends Kim and Penelope with Kim's daughter Leah. And who can blame them wanting to see my precious daughters? (The only pics I didn't get were of Penelope and Kim, but poor Belle was having a colicky morning and not the best photo ops, but hopefully another day!)
We are so grateful to have family around and visit since having a newborn and a now 25 month old. Especially when your newborn is fussy which causes your toddler to get fussy, it makes for a hard day! And I thought having 1 newborn was hard, it was a piece of cake looking back now. Sleep when the baby sleeps? Yeah right, not when you have a toddler who only sleeps from 12-2:30pm during the day and what if your newborn isn't sleeping at that time? No sleep for me, that's what. So we have been so happy to have my mom and sister around, and my grandmother, Abuelo Richard and then Heather and Carolyn came to stay with us last weekend to help out too! We can't thank them all enough! Here are some fun pics of them the past few weeks.

This was Belle's first 4th of July, but with her being soo new, we didn't want to overheat her. We decided to brave the morning heat and head over to the Lake Highlands Parade at 9am. She did great and slept the whole time in the shade in her carrier. Luna enjoyed catching all of the things from the parade, including the candy :) I had also worked on the PTA float the night before at my friend Bao's house with a western theme- Ava had fun throwing the candy at us!
The LH Exhcange Club had a fun carnival afterwards with a petting zoo, bounce house, etc but we decided to go home. It would have been way too much for Belle and it was super crowded too.
After naps, we went to my mom's house. My grandmother has been staying there and it was nice to visit with her. My sister was also there recovering from having her tonsils out. It was a very low key afternoon but so glad to take it easy and relax with family!
We started this blog about 'nothing' a couple of years ago, but now it has turned into a blog about our precious daughter Luna, born on May 13, 2010! And then we welcomed baby Belle, 2 years later on May 23rd, 2012.
