One thing that I did not expect when I brought Nathan home was how much I would enjoy watching my two children bond. It has been the sweetest experience to watch these two together every day! They have so much love for each other. I was worried that Halle might get jealous sometimes or tired of having a baby around, but that has never happened. Halle is so protective of her little brother and is so sweet and caring to him. She tells him every day, "I love you, honey." And if he is crying she will come running to him and say, "don't worry, Halle is here, Halle is here." When he wakes up from a nap she will climb up on his crib and say, "Good morning, son! Sweet dreams?" She is always patting his head and giving him hugs and kisses. She is so incredibly gentle with him and so patient if he is having a fussy day. And Nathan totally adores Halle. It is the sweetest thing ever to watch his face light up when he sees her. He smiles and coos at her all day long and giggles at whatever she is doing. These two just melt my heart! I love my kids!

We love going to this park and have spent so much time here. It's the perfect place to let Halle run around and explore, but it is only about two or three miles from the house so we can hurry home if the baby gets fussy. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!

Kim and Halle went on several dates this summer :) Usually to the golf course, Kim even bought Halle her very own golf club and purple golf ball. She practices all the time and is actually getting pretty good! She loves going on these little dates with her Dad and is always asking him, "date, honey?" (lately Halle has been calling Kim and I 'honey' instead of mom and dad, haha!)

Wow, time really flies when there is a new baby in the house! Between the two kids I have had zero free time so I have not been able to blog much, but I will try to catch up little by little! It's so sad to see summer leaving us, but we have had a fun one and have loved being our little family of four! Here are some random pictures, no particular order.
