Lilleigh is almost 3!

Y'all my sweet Lilleigh, my big girl, sissy, honey bunny... is almost 3!! She is such a joy!

Lilleigh LOVES...
Princesses. And princess dresses. I don't know why I even both buying her clothes. All she wants to wear {ever} are pretty princess dresses. She even wears them in public when I let her. And yes, sometimes I let her. Because it's that or whining. And I have a 5-month-old. And let's be honest, there is nothing more fun in her mind than dressing like a princess in public and having people stop and comment about it.Yogurt. She eats yogurt like it's going out of style. Good thing I know how to make yogurt, otherwise we would be buying stock in Stonyfield.Raspberries. The girl really loves raspberries. And putting them on her fingers.Fancy Nancy. Who doesn't love being fancy?The story about Jesus dying on the cross. We read it a lot, per her request. And she has it memorized, so she likes to "read" it to us. Singing. Lilleigh sings for hours in her…

Adeline is 5 months!

Adeline will be 5 months tomorrow!! Time totally flies! And just like with Lilleigh, I enjoy Adeline more each day. She is growing so fast and has become so interactive. Quite the giggler and love bug!

Adeline at 5 months...
She finally rolled over at 4-1/2 months! She is such a content baby and so happy to be on her tummy that she really did not care to roll. One day I heard her wailing from her crib (which she never does), so I raced in there to find her very angry to be on her back! I have only seen her roll one other time on her play mat. Other than that, she doesn't really roll much, though she does spend a lot of time rolling from her back or tummy to her side, while playing.She loooves to play on her tummy. And now she's really good at lifting herself up too, so she will play on her tummy for long periods of time.Other than the activity mat, she can now sit in her Bumbo and play in the exersaucer.She still doesn't really care for the car or fall asleep in the car, bu…

Christmas and {Pre} Christmas Festivities

Somehow I let Thanksgiving creep by without an update. (I blame the ice storm.) Ideally I would post Thanksgiving photos before Christmas, buuut since my computer is being disagreeable at the moment, we will move on!

Right outside of our library (and City Hall), our city puts together a Christmas village each December. It's so cute and fun. We didn't actually go at night this year, though we've been in the past, but I did take Lilleigh to go play at the village and walk around during the day. Here's a photo of her in a sleigh. It's seriously amazing that she smiled for this photo. That never ever happens! 

Before Chrsitmas, Tita came up to visit. She watched Lilleigh for me while I took Adeline to the pediatrician. They decorated gingerbread houses, wrapped gifts, ... and to be honest, I'm not even sure what all they did while I was gone, but they certainly seemed to get a lot of Christmas cheer fit into that little bit!

One afternoon I organized a birthday p…
