Here is our little chubba wub. Peyton is 2 months old. I cannot believe it! She had our appointment and these are her stats:
weight: 11 lbs (70%)
height: 23 3/4 inches (95%)
head: 15 1/4 inches (70%)
She is coming out of her fussy stage. She is learning lots of new things. Our favorites are smiling and spit bubbles. She is constantly blowing spit bubbles!

We have been going crazy with the canning at our house. We canned 60 pints of applesauce, 30 quarts of tomatoes, 14 pints of green beans, and we have done 2 batches of freezer corn. The girls had a lot of fun peeling tomatoes. I was surprised at what good helpers they were. I love to look at my shelves and see all the yummy food and the fruit of our labors.

Bens dad does a lot of woodworking and he made us this table. We found one that we liked at pottery barn and took lots of pictures and sent them to him and he made it for us. It is beautiful. He did a great job. It is made out of solid walnut. I love the legs and that the color is so warm. The end pull out and we have two leaves that we can slide in. I am so excited to have a big table. Now we need to find chairs to match but for now we will take one thing at a time!
This picture the table looks more yellow than it really is.
I love the legs on the table. This is more the real color.

Bens parents came for a long weekend to visit and we have had a great time with them. We took them to our favorite place "the farm" and we went to the ocean. We decided to go up North a bit and went to Tillamook. We had a little tour of the cheese factory and then enjoyed some ice cream. I had my camera but I am still adjusting to dealing with 3 kids out and about and trying to take a picture can sometimes throw me over the edge! Anyways we had fun there and then we headed up towards Oceanside and played on the beach. The girls nad grandma found some seashells. Daddy built a sandcastle with them and they found another little girl there to be their friend. Daddy showed them all how to dig their feet into the sand. Addie figured it out just as a wave came in and the wave knocked her over. The picture is of Ben carrying her out and then her running to us to get fried off, She was drenched. Fun times were had at the beach!

Addie had so much fun with her family around her for her birthday! It is so fun when they start to understand what a birthday is and get excited for it. She decided she wanted a cake with a pink flower and a rainbow. She had a great time and got to open lots of fun presents.

So many things to blog about and I have seemed to make every excuse not to do it! Over Labor Day weekend we blessed Peyton and we celebrated Addisons 3rd birthday with all of our family in town. We had a great time with grandma, grandpa, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!
