TWO Months Old

Duke was TWO months old this week.  Despite the craziness, we managed to get a few pictures to mark the milestone!
He cracks me up. 
 I just thought Cilla had the most serious faces as a baby, but he puts her to shame.
 Being two months old is rough on a little man!
 It's tiring to be so cute!
 This one is for Cilla.  She wanted me to take his picture with his giraffe.
 I just love his big ole cheeks!  Sweetness!
Duke Update:
I have no idea what our little buddy weighs but he has grown so much the last week.  He has almost grown out of 3 month clothes!  BIG BOY!
Sleeping, well, we are still working on that!  We are lucky to get a five hour stretch from 11 pm to 4 am.
He is a big fan of the swing.  He sleeps in the Nap Nanny.  And he gets swaddled at night, like it or not!
He eats like a champ!
He still has a lot of blank stares, but he is starting to smile at us.  He has a sweet smile with sparkly eyes.  I am ready to see more of it.
He has enormous eyes and they are so blue.  I would not be disappointed if they stayed that way!
He has had lots of firsts this month.  A birthday party.  First time to church.  First night away from home...and mommy!  His first play date.  His first Razorback gameday.  He has been a busy boy!
He is a little snuggler.  Way more than his big sister ever was.  He would be perfectly happy if you would sit and hold him ALL. DAY. LONG!
He has already acquired a handful of nicknames.  Dukester the Candy Machine (he can thank his sis for that one day!), Bubba or Bubby, and Brother Bear are the big ones.
And that is our two month old in a nutshell!

County Fair

Like everything else in my life right now, this is a bit late!  I am trying my hardest  to keep up with the happenings of the Harris fam or I know I will regret not documenting more!  I already do!
A couple of weeks ago the county fair was in town.  Cilla has been looking forward to it since she got back  from Lake Tahoe with her daddy!  They went to a carnival and rode rides on Father's Day, so she has been pumped at the possibility of doing it again.  The week that the fair was in town was a crazy one.  Lots of rain and lots going on.  But this sweet baby girl was way too excited not to take her!  Her Nana and Poppa stepped up to the plate and helped this overwhelmed momma out!
I'm so thankful they did because she had a blast!  She was literally all smiles from the time we arrived.
 The teacups were her favorite!  She rode the first time with her mommy, then got brave and rode twice by herself!
 I love this picture!  You can almost hear the squeals!
 She and Poppa rode the Ferris Wheel while Mommy, Nana and Brother watched.
 And of course our little animal lover loved all the livestock!  This calf was her favorite.  We joke that one day she will be involved with FFA or 4H and will show her animals at the fair!
Sweet, sweet memories with Nana and Poppa!
