Enjoying some outside time (before the heatwave)

We have had a very laid back summer with Sidney joining us.  Jeremy and I have spent a lot of time strolling the neighborhood and going to parks.  We went to George Wyth State park this week for a walk on the bike trail with baby and dog and then for a little picnic. I made these this great spinach salad to go with our sandwiches, only to realize that I forgot to pack forks- Ha! needless to say,we still had a fun time and it has been a very nice relaxing summer being at home with my wonderful husband and precious baby. 

 Happy Summer!

Guess who's three months old...?

That's right- Sidney is three months old.  In this short time, Sidney has collected a myriad of nicknames.  Here are a few:
Sidney Bean
Love Nugget
Sweet Potato
Little Peanut
Sir Craps-a-lot

He weighed in on June 27th at 10 lbs 8 oz. and 23 and 1/2 inches long.  He is in the 10th percentile of height and weight right now but growing faster every day.  He can hold his head up well and smiles all the time.  We are looking forward to the day Sidney rolls over. 

Today we had a little photo shoot to capture this special day.  Here's a little taste of our fun today!

Happy Birthday America

We had a great day traveling to the Big Red Barn to see Rachel, Sean, Riley, and Jack on the 4th of July.  We had a yummy lunch and everyone got to meet Sidney.  The kids got a chance to feed Sidney and still had time to get a game of frisbee in before we had to head off to Coralville to see Jeremy's folks.
 We spent the afternoon with Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Anna. Coralville held a carnival so we took some time to stroll over to it after relaxing on the porch.  After a great dinner, we headed home to tuck our sweet little guy in before the fireworks started. Sidney showed off his patriotism as you can see below!
