I wanted to capture Hattie talking, which she does a lot, but she was so interested in the camera she would stare at it and not talk. I did get a couple sounds and a yawn. :) She's so sweet. When she's interested in something and concentrating she purses her lips together and looks just like the boys did when they would concentrate.

Wow, it's been a HOT week. The temps have been in the upper 90s with a heat index in the 100s. We've had such beautiful weather all summer that this feels very strange. Last night we got outside and ran through the sprinklers. Hattie liked the warm humid weather.

Swimming this year was a BIG success! I've never been so proud of the my boys. I watched them learn to swim, with tears in my eyes, and saw pure joy as they "got it".Owen (in front) and Chase get a ride to the deep end.
Way to go Chase! He was not at all afraid to jump off the board this year. He wanted to do it again and again!

My good friend Kelly and I have known each other for about 4 years now. She and I are in MOPS together and a Bible study. Last summer we were both talking about wanting another baby, but were unsure of the timing, if we "really" wanted another baby, etc. We prayed and had been praying for years. Turns out we both became pregnant around the same time, by God's design. I had told Kelly at MOPS in early November that I was indeed pregnant, only to hear from her, "So am i!" Our due dates were 8 days apart! Kelly was due to have her c-section on June 20th. I was due the 30th and was going to be induced on the 27th. God had another plan. I went into labor on the 19th and Kelly was the first person I texted! I told her I was going to have our baby on the 20th, just like her. We couldn't believe it! What were the chances. So, when Hattie was born at 2:39 a.m. on the 20th, Kelly was awake, nervous about her upcoming C-section that morning. It's been fun to compare stories and do baby life together this summer.
Kelly and I on June 11th.
Hattie and Kinley meeting for the first time on June 26th.

We celebrated National Night out the first week of August. It was such a great time in the neighborhood park. There was a live band, music for kids, a pot luck and emergency vehicles. The weather was amazing too-however a storm blew in a little later.Owen, our new neighbor, Owen and Chase
