Billie does this new thing where she plays with her tongue and it's hilarious. Between her goofy tongue, her pointer fingers, and her constant wiggly-ness, she's sure keeps us laughing! She's at such a fun age right now. She's been learning new "tricks" every day and each time she learns a new trick, she likes to show it off. She also just so happens to be the biggest (little) flirt on the face of the earth. She knows just how to get what she wants. It's rather dangerous, actually. 

One of the things that's been making me really happy lately is her sweet relationship with Tay. Watching the two of them together is one of my most-favorite things. They're two peas in a pod, really. She's inherited her daddy's laugh. They get each other laughing so hard and it's the funniest thing because their laughs are the same. HA. We were sitting outside as a family one evening and while Billie was playing in the grass (aka eating the grass), Tay looked at me and said, "I'm really glad that I have a daughter." And his eyes were glowing as he looked down at his baby girl and my heart melted instantaneously. 

Seeing Billie's little feet hangin' out of her carseat is one of those little things that welcomes so much happiness into my heart. She always seems to be pointing those little toes, too. But seriously, I can't even handle the cuteness. Those chubby little feet and baby toes will always have a special place in my heart.

Billie has a best friend named Charlie Rose and I love that they share a middle name. They've kind of been forced into being "best friends," though. But how can they not be? They're so dang cute together! We put Charlie in Billie's lap the other day and I was laughing to hard at the look on Billie's face as she strained her abdominal muscles in order to hold up not only herself, but Charlie too. 

It's fun to watch the two of them getting bigger and learning new things. They have a lot of fun similarities (must be a baby thing) but they're also so different. It's so neat to be able to look at these tiny humans and see their bright personalities already showing through so much. They can't even talk or walk, but they already communicate so well. It really is so neat.

We've been spending a whole lot of time outside lately. I think that's my favorite part about summertime; we have a million and one excuses to get outside. There's never ever "nothing" to do in Utah during the summer months. 

There is probably nothing better than seeing Billie in a bouncer. It's hilarious, really. She could be in there for hours and never, ever get bored. I honestly don't even know how she managed to hang on to all of those sweet rolls of hers when she's as active as she is-- especially in the bouncer! Girl gets quite the workout in there... every time I pull her out, she's nice and sweaty. But oh, how she loves it!

We've been doing so well at doing summery things this summer! It has made me so happy. We've been keeping ourselves busy but we've been having a lot of fun doing so. We took Billie to her first rodeo a few weeks ago and she loved it! I was actually kind of worried about how she'd do because it didn't start until her bedtime... but she stayed content the whole time and we didn't even have to leave early. I've always loved rodeos-- my grandpa is a straight-up cowboy. Maybe that's why. It put Tay and me in a full-blown country-lovin' mood for at least a week afterwards (I think it's still going, to be honest). I can't even tell you how happy it made me that we got to go!

We took Billie to go and see my grandparents (it was actually the grandpa she's named after that we went to go and see). Taylor and I were laughing SO HARD because when my grandma tried to hold her all she kept exclaiming was, "SHE'S SUCH A LITTLE PORK. I CAN'T HOLD HER, SHE'S GOING TO PULL ME OFF THE COUCH!" This photo accurately depicts just how hilarious that moment was.

I'm a weirdo and I already bought a double stroller. But in my defense, the stroller was %60 off so I got a dang good deal on it. (No, I'm not pregnant. hahaha) I wanted to take the double stroller out for a spin so we went on a walk with Charlie and Ariauna. Billie refused to let me buckle her in. We made it about five minutes before Billie had a blowout and Charlie was mad because it was too hot.

So Billie ended up back in the stroller without any clothes on, still unbuckled. She managed to maneuver her way into standing position so she could get her hands on my sonic slush, which she proceeded to drink. The kid is hilarious... and determined... I'll give her that. 

Billie has her first tooth! And her second is not far behind. But she won't let me look inside her mouth to actually see her teeth. Every single time I try and look, she sticks her tongue out just like this and blocks my attempt. I was sneaky enough to get one little glance at her teeth because I got her laughing... so I know it's there! But that's about it. (ignore the dog hair all over her face.)

 **More photos of me attempting to get a good look at her tooth feat. Billie clapping because she won and I didn't actually get a good look.

Oh, wanna know what makes everyone happy? Billie in a bikini. I mean, seriously, just look at those rolls! I've decided that bikinis for babies, although cute, are totally pointless because all the wiggling they do always shimmies the bikini off. But hey, at least they look cute in them?

And last but certainly not least, here are a bunch of photos that make me happy. I'm just too lazy to explain why right now. They're happy photos, okay? Just take my word for it!

That's all for now, folks. The end.
