6 months

Because Aunt Ruth oh so subtly hinted I hadn't posted 6 month pictures, here they are! We don't go in for her check up until after we get back from the farm, so I don't know her latest stats, but I bet she close to 18 pounds. Still blue eyed, and a little whiter than her sister! Sometimes it's hard to be 6 months.
And then we find our foot, so everything is ok. It's her new favorite toy.

Vanna White she is not. But at least she's cuter!

So we're off to the farm tomorrow for a few days, so don't expect to hear from me until we get back!

The Circus is in Town!

The pictures loaded backwards. Oh well!

The Shiner Circus was in town this weekend, so Laura and I took the girls Friday night. We had to leave at intermission bc it was so long and the kids were done, but it was a fun 2 hours!

Abby's biggest concern was that she get cotton candy. She did.

Here's a shot of the arena pre-circus time.

And the elephants-- we had a great view of them. The little baby one was so cute-- it danced around the arena. And Abby was a little upset she didn't get to ride an elephant, but I just didn't think it was worth the price!
Here's the girls waiting for the circus to start...of course I didn't get one of both of them looking at the camera!
And, thanks to mom's neighbors, we didn't even have to pay anything to get in to the show!

All played out!

Sometimes, a girl's just gotta sleep. Even if she's in the middle of playing.

5 months

I forgot.... How much

Of a Challenge

the Pictures Become

So I just waited

Until she fell asleep. Which she did last night her very own crib for the first time!

Just a little update on the rest of things, not necessarily kid related. Although I'll start with these 2. Abby's getting more and more to where she wants to do things with Olivia, including reading her bedtime story. So this is usually our nighttime ritual.
We had a sprinkler system put in last week-- yeah!! I'm probably most excited about this.
And my wonderful husband got me these for Valentine's Day last month. 2 dozen-- not too shabby!

I was on inpatient last month. It's definitely cold season-- I think over half my team every day had RSV. And although it makes for an easy team, it gets a little old. I had another cancer diagnosis-- I hate those. Keeping William in my prayers, and so thankful he developed a pneumonia and I listened to my gut about needing to do more workup. Tomorrow Dave and I are going kitchen table shopping--- yeah! That's really the last major piece of furniture we need to buy for the new house. Hopefully I'll have good news tomorrow! That's about it for now. I need to post Livi's 5 month pictures before she turns 6 months...maybe tomorrow too??


If she could talk, she'd tell you these are her new favorite toys. And this is her new favorite position. Won't be long until she can get her toes into her mouth!

All the cool kids are doing it.

Best buds

Not sure what we're going to do when Riley moves away in a couple of months. I want to cry just thinking about it.

Blowing in the Wind

During a photoshoot with the Haws children last week, I threw Olivia up on a hay bale and started snapping away. It was a windy day. I think she liked it though!
I love her little crinkled nose!

I'll check with Laura to see if I can post pics of her kids on here....I got some super cute ones!
