One afternoon, Hollon's dirty diaper leaked and it was close to bedtime. So I threw on an old McCallie romper on Hollon to wear until bathtime. We laughed because it made her look like a little boy!
We got new pajamas
My old flip phone has a new owner
My sister loaned us this activity table that her boys had outgrown. Hollon loves it!
Thank you Woody & Gaines!
A spoon makes a great teething toy!
On Thursday, Jake got a haircut
We were hosting a going-away party at our house Saturday night, so the Bush's offered to watch the kids Friday night so we could get ready. Hollon is warming up to their cat Tiger.

God bless my sweet in-laws. Hollon did not have a good night Friday night. She was up a lot & Granddad ended up sitting up with her sleeping on his chest for most of the night.
We picked up the kids Saturday morning. We had 2 birthday parties to attend. First up was one of our sports buddies, Joshua's birthday party. It was at a karate studio. Jake loved it!

Next party up was a school friend Rylan's birthday party. I tried talking Jake into skipping this one, as the party backup up to the party we were hosting. Jake could not fathom the idea of skipping one of his best buddies party. Thankfully the party was at a park and they were there early setting up. We stopped by so Jake could play with Rylan for a little bit and we could give him his gift.
Then it was on to the party we were hosting at our house. It was for our friends The Hampton's. Joe was an assistant coach on Jake's baseball team last year and head coach of the football team. Their oldest son Joseph played baseball & football with Jake. They live in our neighborhood, are president of the PTO and just the type of family that you love to be around. We are going to miss them! We invited over several of the coaches that Joe has coached with & boys Joseph has played with over the last year.
We had 8 families there, which equaled 13 kids between the ages of 4-7. Of those 13 kids, 12 were boys. Let's just say there was a lot of swords, a lot of running around, a lot of sports, and a lot of noise. 3 miracles happened that evening:
1) No one got seriously injured
2) Nothing major in our house got broke
3) Hollon slept through half of it
The kids ran continuously between Jake's room, the bonus room, living room & outside.
After the last guests left, we went upstairs to check on Jake. (Several of the boys had been up there watching a movie.) He fell asleep sitting up.
People ask me all the time if Hollon looks like Jake. Sometimes I see it, but most times I don't. I think because one is a boy & one is a girl, I just don't see it (my mind is extremely simple). Sometimes Hollon will look a certain way or do a certain thing & it will remind me of Jake. I think once she is older, I'll be able to tell if they favor. For now, I think they both just look like an average 8M old baby. Here are pictures of Hollon from this last week and pictures of Jake when he was around Hollon's age. Do you think they look alike?
