The month of June has been an absolute whirl wind and SO much fun. Caroline finished her ballet classes the last week of May and had her big ballet recital in June. What an absolute JOY it was to watch her prepare for and participate in her recital. We had NON-stop ballet practice the three days leading up to her big recital... I seriously felt like a pageant mom (I secretly loved every moment of it). Nana came into town to watch her big performance too.. very special I cannot explain how much I loved watching Caroline dance and we were so incredibly proud of her. She was front row and center during her dance and didn't miss a step. She LOVES to dance. I can't wait for her ballet/tap class that starts in August. Reese is ready to sign up too, she wants to do exactly what Caroline does. I can't quite see Reese as a ballerina, maybe she will be part of the hip-hop group. The girls dance every night and put on a show for Steve and I... it's priceless!
Caroline has also started T-ball and loves it too. It's a perfect sport for her. It's not highly competitive and she is really good at hitting the ball. Steve loves throwing the ball with her and teaching her how to catch. She looks adorable out there! Reese loves t-ball practice too,,. she holds onto her bat and cannot wait to get out there and play. Reese sits on the bleachers and thinks, "put me in coach". She could keep up with those kids.
Allie turned 1 month old... I can't believe it. She is absolutely perfect and SO sweet. She is awake more during the day and loves to be outside (stay away HOT weather). She weighs about 9 pounds and is about 21 inches. She has grown alot. Love our girls!
Here are a bunch of pictures from the month of June. They maybe out of order... I'm too lazy (or tired) to fix it :0)

These pictures make my heart melt... I never in a million years thought I would have 3 perfect girls. They are the sweetest, funniest, kindest, busiest, and cutest little girls. I LOVE seeing their little faces in the morning and getting to spend everyday with them. I'm a lucky mom!

Allie has arrived and is absolutely perfect!! She was born May 12th (Mothers Day). She weighed 7 pounds 2 oz and was 19 inches. She is perfect is every way. For the people that want to know... I went for my check up on the Friday before mothers day. I was already almost 4 cm dilated and my doctor told me to get ready because she was coming. I left the doctors office feeling pretty crampy but went straight to Caroline's mothers day tea party at her school (I was not about to miss it). We went out to dinner that evening and I was feeling pretty pregnant. On Saturday we spent the day cleaning and getting last minute stuff done just in case (glad we did). We went to a kids birthday party that night and I was having some pretty strong contractions. I went to sleep that night and woke up at about 2am with some pretty major contractions. I laid on the couch and watched the movie "The Patriot" one of my all time favs. The girls woke up and of course ran in with their mothers day gift and cards. Sweet sweet girls. I was still feeling some heavy contractions so I decided to call my doctor. She told me to go ahead and head to the hospital. We got the girls around and walked to meet my parents to hand off the girls to them. Steve and I walked back home and picked up, cleaned the pool, packed our bags and headed to the hospital. I got checked in and my contractions were coming about 4-5 minutes apart and I was already dilated to a 6!! Yippee. I got my epidural about 1 1/2 later and it was super fast from there. Allie Stone Loeffler was born at 3:24pm. Fast and easy delivery. We stayed one night and we were discharged the next day (we are not hospital people) We decided to name her Allie because we like the name and her middle name (Stone) is after my amazing Grandma and Grandad... my mom's parents (their last name is Stone). Caroline and Reese have been amazing with Allie. They love on her and kiss her all the time. We are so blessed to have THREE amazing, FUN, and beautiful little girls.
