five months with Wolfe

Dear Wolfe,
You've hit lots of milestones this month.
You are officially MOBILE!
Rolling/turning/crawling everywhere.
You are loving your new found freedom. 
It seems like you are so anxious to keep up with you older siblings. 
This month you also mastered SITTING! 
One of my favorite milestones because you are more content to just "be" for longer periods of time. 
It also makes grocery shopping easier. 
You like to be up watching all the action. 
At five months old you also cut your first tooth. 
It's a sharp little bugger on the bottom right. 
You've chomped down pretty hard a few times while nursing.
Your hair is coming in thick except for a little baldy spot on the back. 
You're still in the cat napping phase and it's driving me bonkers, but you're sleeping pretty well at night so i'm not complaining too much. 
You seem to nap longer when you're on the couch next to me as opposed to the crib. 
We will probably start trying to do overnights in the crib here pretty soon because you are taking up SO much room in bed already haha. 
I love waking up to your fat happy face every morning!
You are SO easy to get to smile.
You ham it up HARD for the ladies at church. 
You totally smile with your whole body (if that makes any sense)
Ah we just love you so much!!!!!
Your sweet spirit just brings us so much joy. 
We love you little man,

Remington's Room

Remington wanted to set up the bunk beds in his room this time around. 
Other than that, his room really hasn't changed much! 
He can't wait till Wolfe's old enough to sleep on the bottom bunk! 
This little guy loves having a place of his own to escape from the girls. 
During nap/quite time he dumps out all his legos and cars on the ground and creates the coolest little garages and villages. 
I also love when he sits in his chair with his feet propped up looking at books or playing games on the tablet. 
We are both happy with how his space came together!

Our first garden

We've been wanting to plant a garden FOREVER!!!
The side yard in our new rental home was the perfect place to do it.
The entire backyard is dirt so a week before we planted, David went out every night and tilled/loosened up the area and got rid of all the big rocks. 
The local Arizona gardening pages told us it was probably to late in the season to start but we got lucky and had a "colder" week at the beginning of May, so we went ahead and planted!
What had nothing to lose, haha!
I had zero faith any thing would actually grow, but here we are four weeks later and things are coming up nicely. 
We have to water 3x a day because the temps are so high already, but this spot gets good shade during the hottest times. 
The babies had so much fun helping us plan the garden and pick out seeds. They come out with me every afternoon to check the progress. It'll be interesting to see if the plants actually yield any produce. We are crossing our fingers! If not, we got a super early head start on getting the ground ready for our winter crops. I hear thats really when the magic happens. 
There's something amazing about those little plants pushing through and growing despite the non-ideal conditions. It's a good reminder/application to real life. 
That cracked dirt though! AH!
You proved me wrong Arizona.

Frances and Olive's shared room

We decided it was time to move Frances from the crib to a twin bed once we moved into our new rental. 
The transition was super smooth!
She loves having her own big girl bed. 
I was a little nervous about getting both beds to fit in their new room since it is significantly smaller than their room at the Peoria home. 
Now that we are all unpacked and organized, it feels like just the perfect size for these two girls! 

My only hang up so far in this rental is the NASTY poop yellow/brown/tan color the walls are painted. 
It gives me serious RAGE but alas, there is nothing we can do about it. 
If I had it my way, the entire home would be WHITE!
(Sterile white according to my mother haha)
Anyways, here is the girls completed room. 
Fran stores her binkys in that little crown box. 
This collage was super quick and easy to put up! Some bright washi tap added a fun pop of color. 
The closets here are super tight so we had to get creative with organizing them. The purple bins store their extra sheets, blankets and seasonal clothing. 
So glad my girls have a room they love!
