The Zoo!! ( Sailor is 5 weeks)

Well ladies and gents guess who is my little explorer buddy... 

you got it! This little man right here! That being said, we were a little more than excited to go and explore the Zoo to celebrate baby sis turning 5 weeks old! Okay that's not really why we went BUT... if the shoe fits! Can you believe it has been 5 weeks?!? I can't! it has gone way too quickly! and my little buddy Keller has been a trooper the whole time! He is such an incredible big brother and in his words, he loves his "beebeee iss soooo much!" 

I love watching them together and love our little adventures together! 
So, about the zoo.... i am quite certain Keller could go there everyday for a week and still find new things to explore and entertain! He was on constant go mode the whole time! thankfully my cute sister in law, her cute sis, and their boys came as well because between Keller and Ryker, we were all thoroughly entertained and busy busy!  
now for miss Sailor at the zoo.. can I just say... dream baby! she was perfect! and I am quite certain that she loved the zoo too!  
now for some pictures!!
"HIIII hiiii" Keller kept telling the giraffes hi and bye!

Keller LOVED the map they give you when you get to the zoo! It was adorable!

Cute little Ryker!

Challis and Jerris! We love them so much! I mean seriously- how cute- right?!?

One Month!

One month!
I cannot believe that one full month has officially passed! You my darling baby girl, are growing up far too quickly!! 

You LOVE to snuggle.. in fact you kinda... err ummm really hate to be left alone! You LOVE your big brother- and he can get you to smile like nobody's business! I am still not sure how- but I think it is just because you know just how awesome he is- and he sure loves you to the moon!!! I am quite certain that the two of you are going to love causing mischief together and will be the best of buddies! 
You my little lady also love to spit up.. okay that is a lie.. I am sure you hate spitting up, BUT you do it ALL THE TIME! i am fairly certain that you have crazy reflux issues but I am hoping they go away soon- because good gaully girl! also on that note, I am quite certain that you hate the hiccups! Seeing as how they cause you to spit up all the time!
You LOVE to sit up - with help of course! 
You LOVE to be outside.. as long as it is not windy! But you especially love being in the sun! You are officially a summer girl!  ohh.... and your dad is crossing his fingers that you will learn to love boating! 
You love going on walks, and love watching your big brother dance around! You my little lady have put up with a very very busy first month like a super trooper! and for that, I love you and am so proud of you!!!
