Another soccer season for Izzy

Izzy had a great soccer season.  She played with a few of her friends, Ellie and Dylan.  What a difference a couple years make.  Her first season she was crying and didn't really enjoy it.  This year she couldn't wait for every game, never wanted to sit out, was always asking when she could go back in.  She scored several goals each game, 2 of the games she scored 5.  It did help that she was one of the older kids on the team.  She hustled, listened to the coach, and had a great time.  We couldn't be more proud!!  She's already signed up for fall soccer.

These little buddies do everything together!! It's fun to have friends in the neighborhood.  Not sure why I didn't get any action shots, next time for sure!

Brielle is 2 months

Brielle seems so big to me.  I can't get over it; she seems older than 2 months to me!  I want her to stay little.  This past month she started rolling over when I put her on her tummy.  She has also started smiling.  She loves tummy time, oftentimes she just falls asleep on her tummy.  She likes to take naps in her swing and she loves her binkie.  If her binkie is in her mouth, it's all good.
This past week she started doing 5-6 hour stretches at night, which is great. So I usually finish her last feed at 11, she gets up around 4 or 5 and then again at 7:30 or 8. I usually feel pretty well rested.  Mike doesn't go to work until around 9 so sometimes I go back to bed until 9, which is great. We have a really good system, he gets up with the girls and I take care of Brielle. 
During the day she eats about every 3-4 hours.  She doesn't eat for long, usually about 6-8 minutes and sometimes only on one side, which means I have to pump the other side.  I worry that when she only eats on one side she doesn't get enough, but she seems to be fine with me.  
We love this little girl so much!
Weight: 12 lbs 8 oz (63%)
Height: 24.4 in (96%)
Head: 15.98 in (92%)
These measurements were on 5/22/15, so a little after her 2 month mark.  She's nice and tall, just like her sisters.

She hangs out with big sisters sometimes!

Love those cheeks!
Izzy loves to hold her.
She falls asleep very easily.
Headed to her 2 month checkup.
Shots are never fun, but she was awesome.  She cried at first, but then just slept the rest of the day.
When she comes out to dinner or to run errands, she usually just falls asleep.

Tulip Festival

I'm pretty sure this was my first outing with all 3 kids.  Sometimes it can be a lot of work to get all the door with all the kids, but I'm glad I did.  It was a beautiful day and the kids really had fun at the Tulip Festival.  We met Claire, Manina, and their kids, so that always adds to the fun. 
The kids loved playing by the water. 
She's getting so big!
They were not cooperating with pictures. 
She is so stinking cute!
Feeding the fish is always a highlight!
Those fish are huge!
Claire was superwoman and pushed all 3 kids up the hill in the stroller, while the little kids were running around.  It was a great outing and the first of many with my 3 little ones!
