Weeks 27 and 28

June 28-July 11, 2015

Still playing catch up!

Sweet sisters.

Funny faces.

Happy family.

Weeks 23, 24, 25, and 26

May 31-June 27, 2015

I am playing catch up because I got waaaay behind on these blog entries, so this is going to be a very general recap of the month of June.

Here's Daddy with sweet baby Matilda (and an ice-cream-eating photo-bomber).

And here's the Momma with a slightly fussier version of the same baby.

Nora started taking swim lessons at pre-school and is really gainiting confidence in the water. Here she is swimming at Dede and Grandpa's pool.

Here we are attempting to get a good Father's Day picture for Brad's Vols frame.

We did eventually get it right!

The baby blues! The dimple!

This big girl makes me so proud every day. She is the BEST big sister.

And this little one turned FIVE months old!

Finally, my best friend Jessica got married. She was a gorgeous bride, and Brad and I had a great time celebrating with the new Mr. and Mrs. Helman.

We're a vision of loveliness, I know.

Weeks 21 and 22

May 17-30, 2015

The 2014-15 school year came to an end. I really loved this group of students, and while it always feels good to have another year "in the books", it was still kind of sad to see them go. It was also sad to bid farewell to the most amazing principal in the world. I really don't think that's hyperbole. Mr. Perry was my principal at Whittle Springs for 5 years and then after a few years, I was lucky enough to work with him again at Austin East. He has earned his retirement, but it's a huge loss for us.

This sweet thing turned 4 months old, and she couldn't possibly be any  more perfect. At 15 lbs and 25.5 inches, she is in the 70th-90th percentiles. Like I said,  perfect.

First tooth! You can hardly see it, but it is definitely there.

We wrapped up another season at The Little Gym and are taking a break for the summer. We may go back in the fall or we may try something different. We'll have to wait and see what Nora wants to do and what our schedule allows.

Tilly was baptized at Apostles just like Nora was 4 years ago. The baby carried on the tradition by wearing the Pratt family christening gown. It was a lovely service and a lovely celebration.
