Elle is 1 month old!

A just like that…Leighton is one whole month old! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

She had her check up on Monday and I could’ve sworn she was much bigger than K at 1 month, but luckily I saved their forms from the doctor…and I was wrong!! Crazy how quickly you forget. ๐Ÿ˜† L is a whopping .35 inches and .4oz smaller than K was at this point.

Most importantly, she’s healthy and happy! We even got some smiles from her today!

At her appointment, her doctor put her on her tummy to test her “tummy time” – this little CrossFit prodigy rolled right on over!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ And now, she’s officially done with tummy time, because every time since, she’s continued to just roll right on to her back. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Leighton is ridiculously strong. Her grip and muscle control is unreal. If she doesn’t want to move her hand from her face it’s like arm wrestling a grown adult to move it. Same with putting on her PJs. If she doesn’t want to bend her leg, you can’t bend it for her. Homegirl does it on her OWN time.

Alas, she is only 4 weeks old so life has basically consisted of eating, sleeping and pooping.

Oh. And shopping. Of course. ๐Ÿ˜œ

She’s also a very noisy baby, and I don’t mean crying. L is so squeaky and grunty and even snores sometimes. ๐Ÿคฃ

And now, we’re looking forward to a fun 4th with friends and spending the long weekend with family in town!

We hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July weekend!! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Day 25-27

Our little L turns one month old this week and I’m not too sure where the last 4+ weeks have gone! It feels like she was born a week ago, but I also barely remember life before her!

Favorite part of the day: these snuggles.

We had quite the jam-packed weekend and these girls were troopers through it all!

I think L hit a growth spurt on Friday because she slept All. Day. Long. It was the perfect day for it because I decided to take my chances and get my nails done AND we spontaneously took our first road trip as a family of 4 to Jax for the night!

Straight chilled and then put herself to sleep!

It was a quick trip home for one of my best friends 30th birthdays – and the girls got a little QT with Gramma and Grampa while mom & dad had a fun night out!

Leighton is still working on crushing Kensie’s blow out record. We’ve had one a day all weekend…and 2 on Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜† Currently accepting applications for a nanny that has to do nothing other than change diapers (because it’s all they’ll have time for…)

I literally JUST put this on her.

I think Kensie has moved completely past her minor jealousy stage, so other than being a typical toddler (๐Ÿ™„), she’s been the absolute BEST big sister. She’s still protective (or controlling…) over her and tells people not to touch her when they come over or pick her up. Lol!

She constantly asks to take pictures with “sister”, mainly because she knows that means she gets to hold her. And in K’s defense, L was less than pleased BEFORE we passed her off in this photo. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Maybe one day she’ll smile.

K is such a great helper when it comes to Leighton! If she’s crying, K will run clear across the house to check on her and give her a binky or sing “twink-lay twink-lay little star” to her. ๐Ÿ˜† also if you want her to do something and she won’t, just say it’s for Leighton and she abides. For now, anyway. Ha!!

While L slept, ate and pooped the weekend away, K had a blast with some of her friends from birthday parties to staying up way too late and eating nothing but sugar for dinner – because when you’re a kiddo, that’s what weekends are for!

At least they split the sugar rush?
These girllllssss melt my heart when theyโ€™re together! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ

Kensieโ€™s fave: tutus and celebrating her friends birthdays!

And to top it all off, this weekend K kept randomly hugging me and saying “thank you mommy!! I love you, you’re my best fwend.” …so excuse me while I go sob. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿฅฐ
