This is a blog about our son, Connor & our daughter Lilly. They are both our miracle children because we struggled with infertility and then the lord blessed us with both of them. We adopted Connor from birth and Lilly is our biological child. We are the

Lilly's Almost 2 yrs old!

2010-03-05T01:00:33.981-05:00

Lilly's birthday is in 13 days and she will be 2! Where has the time gone? I can't even believe my baby is a toddler! She is talking a lot now and she's a tough little girl. She likes to push other kids when she doesn't get her way and she LOVES to take Connor's toys and run for her life when he comes after her. Connor is such a good big brother (at times) though. He tries to take care of her and today he even changed her pull up! I found them in his room and he was doing a good job, but when it was time for her next change, I told him I'd do it. ha ha He said "Come on sissy, lets change your butt". She got mad when I told her that I was changing her and said "No, Bubbies". She loves her big brother and loves to copy everything he does. That is a good and bad thing. She can count and sing some of her ABC's by listening to him, but she also learns his bad habits. He screams "Help" when he can't get something he wants and today she started screaming for help as well. We joined MOPs at Connections church in Canton and it's nice to get the kids playing with other kids while I get to meet up with other moms for a couple hrs. I have no problems with Connor because he will make friends wherever he goes. However, Lilly will cry for me everytime I leave her. She still does it at church also and has been going to the nursery since she was like 7 mos old!We went to Connor's conference for pre-school a couple weeks ago and got lots of praises for how smart he is! I was very glad to hear it. I knew he was smart, but it was nice hearing it from his teachers. They said he's very good with numbers. He can recognize all the lower #'s so the are spending time with him on higher ones like #47. They gave me a few pointers on things to do at home with him too but it went really well. He's my big boy! He says the cutest things sometimes and it just cracks me up! He tells me "mommy I love you so reary reary reary much" (He's getting really and very confused I guess). It's so sweet and I just love to snuggle with him.Lilly is very sweet and cuddly too (when she wants to be). She hss been going through a phase of wanting a binky and bottle and to be rocked and wrapped up like a baby in a blanket. Let me just say, she has NEVER taken a binky, so not sure what the deal is. I keep telling her she's a big girl, not a baby but of course my sister, nephew, niece and parents will snuggle her up and rock her like a baby and she just LOVES it. Then expects me to do it at home. ha ha Ok that's all for now. [...]



Happy 2010!!!

2010-01-04T01:56:51.129-05:00

I can't believe I haven't posted since August. The kids keep me really busy these days and I usually post my pictures on facebook now so I've been neglecting the blog.

Connor is almost 3.5yrs old and in a christian pre-school 2 days/wk for 2hrs. He seems to enjoy school even though he can't seem to sit stll most of the time. I can tell a lot of changes in him though since he started school. Some changes for the better (like with taking turns, sharing, etc) but he's very mouthy now and does things he would've never considered doing in the past. I am wondering if he is watching other kids in his class act this way OR if it's just his age. Not sure but he is handful. Yet he is the most polite little boy and so sweet and loving and telling me all the time how much he loves me. It melts my heart! He's been somewhat potty-trained since around Oct. He wears big boy underwear but still doesn't want to poop on the potty. He's done it a few times but will prefer waiting for his night-time pull up. He's not really napping these days so he's pooping less with only 1 pull up at night :)

Lilly is 21 mos old and is really coming into her own little person. She's not my baby girl anymore, but a toddler and the terrible two's have already hit her! She blessed us on Christmas with peeing on the potty, and has been going ever since. However, she is still in the learning process and pee's in her pull up if I don't take her to pee on the potty. She likes using the potty though because she feels like a big girl. She copies everything her big brother does and they LOVE to fight!!! Most of my days are breaking up fights or giving time outs! She likes to bite so we are trying to break her of that habit.

We had a great Christmas and New Year and are very blessed with what we have and our two wonderful "Miracles"!

Enjoy some pic's of the kids :)

My boy is almost 3!!!

2009-08-06T22:12:10.856-05:00

Connor is almost 3 now and I can't believe how much he's changing. He talks so much and he even talks back to me (not cool). He is very sensitive though if he thinks he's hurt your feelings or he made you cry and will hug you. He loves Lilly, but loves to hit her also and try to correct her...Arghhhhhhhhhh! He got a bike for his birthday from us a month early. I believe I posted a picture of it already but if not, I will add it later.

We took Connor fishing last weekend at our friends pond. It was his first time fishing and he caught a fish on the first try! He loved it but was afraid to touch it. Lilly, on the other hand, was all about touching it.

I have some pictures from fishing and a couple videos from fishing. I also have a video of the kids singing and dancing to Alan Jackson Gospel. They are so cute!!!

Today is our dog, Olivia's, birthday...Happy 6th Birthday Livvy!!!

The 4th of July & Zoo

2009-07-22T11:58:40.340-05:00

We took the kids to the Toledo Zoo last Friday and they had a lot of fun. I was only 9 days post surgery so we had to walk slow, but it will still fun. We spent the 4th of July with our cousins and had a good time. I have some pictures and videos from both the zoo and 4th of July to post. Kids are doing good. Lilly went for her check up (16 mos) and she is 21 lbs and 4 oz and 30.75 inches long. She is on the "petite" side they said, which I already figured that out since her little cousin weighs more than she does. LOL [...]



Cedar Point

2009-06-11T11:32:58.357-05:00

I went to Cedar Point on Monday (June 8) with Connor and took my friend's daughter Trinity for him to ride with. My sister went with me and we took my niece and her friends because their school was going to be there the same day. It was a fun day and I have cute pictures of Connor & Trin-Trin to post. Lilly's doing good and growing every day. Her little hair is finally long enough for low pigtails and it's so cute that way (when she leaves them in). Oh I also have a few cute videos to share! In this one, Connor is singing Gospel with Alan Jackson. This video is of our dog, Belle's, Birthday. This video is of Connor cheering on his little sissy. This video Connor's jumping in with his friends Cooper & Abby. This video is of Connor and Trin-Trin riding the bumper boats. Connor kept spinning in circles. This video is Connor & Trin-Trin trying to ride the bumper cars...Again he keeps going in circles at first. Watch how slow they go. It's too funny! I love the pic of Connor & Charlie Brown because since he was a baby I thought he looked like him with the same shaped head, ears and hardly any hair. LOL [...]



Spring...Yipee!

2009-05-17T17:54:25.737-05:00

Well we finally got some spring weather in the last month but today it was colder than it has been. The kids and I have been outside a lot during the day to burn up some of their energy and they both LOVE playing in the dirt! Especially if it's still wet from rain the day before and has turned to mudd. I've just kinda learned to "deal with it" and let them get dirty. Lilly eats the dirt sometimes if I'm not watching and Connor loves throwing it all over her. ha ha Lilly is walking and all over the place. She started fully walking right before she turned 13 mos old. She is into everything and loves to climb on top of everything.Connor's new favorite show is "Imagination Movers". I guess the Thomas the Train phase is fizzling out. He still likes Thomas and Bob the Builder, but loves to dance and sing along with the Imagination Movers (on Disney channel). We have their CD in the car and always have to listen to it while watching a dvd. ha ha I've gotten to wear I find myself singing along to their songs as well. ha haConnor's growing into a little boy lately. He is starting to like "playing" with other kids instead of just playing "next" to others. He LOVES playing with his cousin Connor (who just turned 3) and it's so cute to watch the 2 of them together. Our Connor calls him "cousin Connor". lol He doesn't just say "Connor". Also he will go up to people and point to himself and say "I Connor". ha ha He likes playing with his sissy too and they used to go play in his room until they pulled all the clothes outta his dresser and took all the toys outta his toybox in there. So, for now, they are no longer allowed to play in there. ha haLilly's been trying to talk more and more. She points to everything now and says "Dat" which means "that". She is very motherly to her dolls and stuffed animals. She loves to cuddle with them. She is completely bottle free now! Hooray for the big girl!!! Her little hair is getting so long while Connor's just keeps getting more curly! She's been cutting teeth for the last few months and now has so many teeth when she smiles. lol She enjoys dancing to the Imagination Movers too (she was just doing it, so it made me think of that).Anyways, enjoy some pictures of the kids.[...]



Where's the time gone?

2009-04-14T01:20:23.341-05:00

Ok I'm really getting bad at posting on here because I'm addicted to Facebook! I post all my pic's and news there but hubby was complaining about no recent posts...Not sure why, he sees the kids everyday and knows what's going on with them. lolLets see, Lilly turned 1yr old on March 18th. We had a birthday party for her at an indoor swimming pool. She loved it because she loves swimming and so did all the other kids. She's somewhat walking now. She's getting more confident and taking more steps and can even stand from sitting without holding onto anything. She says mamma, dada, bubba(brother), ni-ni (nite nite), bye-bye, Hi (that's her favorite word), eyes (and touches her eyes when she says it, and EIEI trying to sing EIEIO with Connor. She tries to sing ABC when Connor sings it but it's just the sound not the actual words. She's definately a drama queen. If she doesn't get her way she gets REALLY mad and throws her little body to the floor in a tantrum and screams bloody murder! I'm not used to this because Connor never did that! She's also a climber. He wasn't like that either. She climbs up on his bed and then falls off sometimes. She climbed up onto the top of his bed (it's a fire truck bed) and was sitting by the little siren light (night light). We still haven't figured out how she got up there! She is just into everything. Connor's such a big boy these days. He talks really well and sings all the time. But boy, he is in his terrible two's right now and they are really bad!!! We started a reward system to help him listen better but sometimes he just doesn't care about getting his "very special surprise" if he earns 3 coins (poker chips) in his rewards jar. Like today, he decided to spit chocolate milk all over me. Ughhhhhhh! I noticed he really does things he shouldn't do if I am on the phone or the computer. I know it's because he wants my attention but it drives me crazy! He is so funny though. Some of the things he says cracks me up. He tells Lilly "Yayyyyy Sissy, good boy" when she is trying to walk. Or he will say "Hmmm let's think" or his new favorite word is "I can't" when we ask him to do something. lol He figured out how to open our sliding glass door and let the dogs out, but he let sissy out too and she fell and bumped her head! We had to put a safety latch on it. Both kids are so precious and I am so blessed to have them. We've been going to church on a regular basis for about 6 mos now and it's so cute to see him come home and talk about Jesus. Yesterday when we left church he said "Bye Jesus". lol He enjoys the singing so we usually bring him outta the nursery at the end of the service so he can sing and dance. lol We dyed Easter Eggs on Fri and went to a birthday party on Saturday for my friend's daughter's 1st bday. He had a blast! Then he was full of sugar on Easter from the Easter basket and the Easter Egg Hunt and the desserts he was sneaking. He crashed big time at the end of the day and had some major meltdowns. It was to be expected though after a long day of sugar and no nap!Well here are some picture for you from the last few months:)Lilly getting into some kleenexConnor upset because he wants more candy for breakfast!The kids on Valentine's day![...]



Happy New Year

2009-01-18T19:21:02.982-05:00

I can't believe I haven't posted since the end of Nov. So we had a great holiday and Connor got a train table from Santa and a bunch of Thomas trains to go with it. Lilly got lots of toys, dolls, movies etc. Connor is talking in sentences now and for a while he would call things that end with "ele" "er". Ex: dieser, easer instead of diesel and easel but not he says them right. He is getting so big and loves to have daddy and I play with him and his trains. I make them talk like on Thomas & Friends and he just stares at me like I'm crazy. ha ha Lilly will be 10mos old tomorrow. She is growing like a weed. Eating table food, drinking from her sippy cup, pushing the chair around the kitchen and sitting up on her knees and walking with the walking toy. I figure she will be walking in the next month or so because she moves all over the place as long as she's holding onto something. She loves to put EVERYTHING in her mouth so of course I have to keep one eye on her at all times. She is a little ham too. She loves big brother Connor and he loves her too. He gets her to squeal just by looking at her. However, he also likes to knock her down when she's going for his toys! lol So I got one eye on him always too. We are going to have them dedicated at our church in Feb. My niece is being baptized the same day so I am super excited about that.We are planning Lilly a big "splash" for her 1st birthday at an indoor pool! Connor and Lilly both are in swimclass and they love it. She is definately a water baby, but Connor is a little more skiddish. I figured why not do something fun for her bday since it's in blahhhhhhh winter and besides we had a big blow out party for Connor's 1st bday so I can't not have one for Lilly too. I know all the little kiddies will love swimming but sure their parents wont be too thrilled walk around in bathing suits. lolConnor drew the number 6 on his doodle pro the other day. He said "six mommy six" and sure enough he did but he scribbled in it before I got a good picture.[...]



Happy Holidays

2008-11-25T14:31:59.834-05:00

I am way behind in posting on here and posting pictures! We have been keeping busy and trying to care for a 2yr old and 8 mos old doesn't leave a lot of time for posting. lolWe went to the Pumkin Factory with the kids and went on a hayride. Also, Connor made the Belleville paper playing in the pumkins! He got his 15 minutes of fame. We took the kids trick or treating on Halloween and it was great! Connor really got into the groove of things once he realized all he had to say was "trick or treat" to get some candy. Most kids don't even say that these days. They walk up to the door with their bag open. I made sure Connor said "trick or treat (tic-teet)" and "thank you (take yew)" He was Nemo and Lilly was a pink poodle. The weather was nice and all was well. Lilly is crawling and pulling up to everything. She started crawling the end of 6mos or beginning of 7mos and the pulling up happened during her 7th mos. She's eating a little bit of table food now with her 2 little teeth and trying to learn to drink from a sippy cup. She is changing so much and it's cute to see her and Connor interacting with one another.Connor finally got his first hair cut over the wknd. He is 2yrs old and didnt have enough hair til not to cut. lol I took pictures and he enjoyed playing while they cut his hair. I took him to a kids haircut place and it was definately worth the money (more expensive than an adult haircut place). He got to sit in a police car chair, got a sucker and spinned a wheel for a price. In other news, Connor & Lilly welcomed their new baby cousin, Landon into the world on October 11, 2008! He is my cousin Kara's baby boy. He's very precious and I can't wait til he's big enough to play with both of his cousin Connor's and Lilly. She is almost 7 mos older than him but they will be in the same grade in school.Happy Thanksgiving to everyone![...]



Lilly's New Outfit

2008-10-06T22:34:32.891-05:00

Here's a couple pic's of Lilly's new outfit. She wore it to church on Sun. I love how her little shoes and leggings match the shirt and the skirt has flowers on it too but don't think you can see them in the pics. They are blurry because they were from my cell phone.I also wanted to add some recent pictures of her now that she can sit by herself. I still prop the boppy pillow behind her in the front room since it's hard wood floors with just a big area rug in case she does decide to fall over. She is learning to scoot backwards and has started getting up on her knees and rocking back and forth now. You will see in the last picture she ended up under our end table. I came into the room and was like "Ok how did you get under there?" ha ha She scooted and rolled her way there I guess. She's also the queen of silly faces as you will see in the pictures.She was blowing bubbles in this picture. She loves to make that rasberry/spitting sound.We took Connor & Lilly on a couple wagon rides and they both loved it. Here's a couple pictures of that too.[...]



Cute Picture

2008-10-04T00:17:45.196-05:00

Here's a cute picture of Lilly. She loves to stick her tongue out. I took it from my cell phone so it's not real clear. (image)



Family Pictures

2008-10-01T14:04:08.872-05:00

I wanted to post our most recent family portraits. They were taken the end of Aug but I didn't have a chance to post them until now. We've been keeping busy lately. Connor and Lilly are doing great and both growing like a weed. We celebrated my grandmother's 80th birthday last weekend then went to a friends house for a pig roast. Connor was in his glory when he found out they owned a GIANT "Tractor". So here's a cute picture of him and daddy on the tractor.
(image)

Here's a cute video of Lilly from the other day.

I'm not sure why the family portraits came out so small, but hopefully you can still see em.

Happy 2nd Birthday Connor!

2008-08-19T17:55:17.143-05:00

Connor's birthday was on Sunday. Me, Daddy, Sissy and Aunt Heather went to the waterpark and had a lot of fun. Then we came home and had cheesecake to celebrate the day. Cousins, Ashley, Jimmy and Aunt Ge-Ge came over and we let him open a few gifts, then went to the playground. Here's a video of us singing Happy Birthday. I love at the end when daddy asks "What is that" and he says " Ceek... Ceek" for cake. Also pic's from the playground. His party was Monday at Chuck E Cheese. We only invited a few of his little friends this time instead of having a big blow out like we did for his 1st birthday. It was a lot of fun. We had a cake made like one my friend had made for her son's 1st bday and it was WAY more cake than we needed. This thing was HUGE! See the pic's of it before and after we ate it. LOLHe got lots of new toys and luckily mommy had a yard sale last wknd to get rid of some of his old stuff to make room for the new! lol I just can't believe my baby is 2 already! I got very emotional when Chuck E Cheese and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Connor. I just stood there (video taping) thinking about where we were 2 years ago. At the time of his party, we were almost to Tulsa, OK to go meet and hold him for the first time. He had been born the night before and we drove 17hrs to get there without any sleep and were pumped up on pure excitement and anticipation waiting to meet "our" new son! Connor is my miracle son because he's brought so much joy into my life and I was thinking again yesterday how Thankful I am that his biological mother chose to give him to us. She called today to see how things were going and to let us know she'd been thinking about Connor. I love that we keep in contact with her still after 2 years. I hope it continues on. Ok on a lighter note...I have a cute and funny video to share of Connor feeding Lilly. You have to watch the whole thing. The end cracks me up!Below it are a couple pic's of him feeding her and the aftermath! Here are the video's from Chuck E Cheese Also want to add some cute pictures of Lilly in her bathing suit and at the water park about a month ago and some of Connor in his big boy undies that I bought him to start thinking about the potty training thing. I wanted to try them on him and he looked so cute in them. lol Also the Chuck E Cheese pic's. These were taken this morning. He was enjoying left over cake after breakfast and playing with his new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.[...]



Connor and Lilly Videos

2008-08-03T17:05:42.563-05:00

Here's a video of Connor playing his great great grandfather's guitar. He loves the "A-tah" and flips out everytime we see them in the store. We always have to walk by them for him to see them. He might just follow in Papaw Hicks and cousin Jimmy's footsteps afterall.

(object) (embed)

Here's a funny video of Lilly doing her business while eating. Ohhh she feels so good afterwards. ha ha She made room for more food in her tummy!

(object) (embed)

This summer is going by so fast. We've been to the waterpark a couple times and Lilly absolutely loves the water! Connor isn't as thrilled about it but is getting better. I will eventually post some pic's of them swimming when I download them from the camera. Lilly is 4.5mos old now and eating all kinds of fruits and veggies. She's up to the stage 2 meals now. She had her 4 mos immunizations a couple weeks ago and weighs 13lbs, 13.5oz and was 24.5 inches long. She is changing so much and loves to talk and can roll over already from her back to her belly. She loves to grab at toys and is constantly chewing on her fist and fingers.

Connor is talking more and more and now says the names of vehicles instead of just "ridin". He names animals that I didn't even know he knew what they were. He is always amazing me. He likes to climb in Lilly's exersaucer (which used to be his). Then he says he's "tuck" for stuck. He makes me laugh at the funny things he says and does.

Hope you enjoy the videos!



Lilly Look a like

2008-07-12T23:18:15.111-05:00

Here's a picture of my niece when she was a baby with my nephew. Don't you think Lilly resembles her? I put one of Lilly below it to compare. They have the same eyes, cheeks, dimple (you can't see in the pictures),same head shape, same forhead and the same ears.(image)

Here's a picture of Lilly and her dad sleeping. Look how much they look alike too!(image)



4th of July Pictures

2008-07-12T22:47:40.065-05:00

Here are the pictures from 4th of July. We went to my sisters and bbq'd.He was happy to get to play in the police car that cousin Jimmy was riding in on July 4th. He got to play with the lights too. I added a video of Connor sniffing Uncle Terry's feet! He loves to sniff feet and then laughs because he thinks it's funny when you say "Shoooweeee". My poor boo boo is strange. ha ha We also took Connor to the fireworks a few days later. My sister gave him a KitKat to keep him happy while watching the fireworks. Afterwards I looked at his face and it was covered in chocolate. (see pic below). Here are some pictures of Lilly in her exersaucer and of Connor playing with it too. He is more excited about it now than when he was little and used to play in it. Also a cute video of Connor kissing sissy.[...]



New York City

2008-07-07T13:04:44.442-05:00

I thought I would post some pictures of my "girls" trip to New York last week. It was so fun and we spent an entire day in Chinatown. We did a lot of shopping and hung out in Times Square and went to ground zero. I had goosebumps when we got there and can't even imagine how everyone must've felt on 9/11! We saw a firestation near ground zero and talked to a really nice fireman there. They had plaques on the wall of the 4 firemen they lost during 9/11 and it was very sad. They sell t-shirts and calendars and the proceeds go to the families of the firemen they lost. We didn't get a chance to go to the Statue of Liberty but we did see it when we were flying in. I was excited about that because I didn't get to see it when I was in NYC before. I really wish we could've stayed longer and definately want to go back next year. Here are some pic's from the trip! I will post 4th of July pictures when I download them. Statue of LibertyThe View of NYC from the planeMe & Nella on the planeMy sis on the planeBarbie Dream House that you could walk insideMe & The Rock...I love him!

Happy Fathers Day

2008-06-15T15:34:46.460-05:00

Happy Father's Day to the best daddy and husband in the whole wide world! Connor, Lilly, Belle, Livvy and Mommy all love you very much!!! To all the other daddy's out there, we hope you have a great day!We took Connor to Cedar Point last week and he had a blast "Ridin" all the kiddie rides. Our cousin Jesse went with us to ride with Connor but ended up riding the Gemini and a few other big rides with Ashley and her friends. It was soooooooooo hot the day we went, but Connor was a trooper. We got caught in a couple thunderstorms at the end of the day, which felt good after being in that terrible heat! I have a some pic's and a video of Connor from there. The morning we went to Cedar Point, Connor decided to climb out of his crib. We decided it's time for his big boy bed and he has been doing great in it. I thought we would have to put him back to bed a million times, but I said "Lets go nite nite in your big boy bed and get your binky" and he went in there and went right to sleep. I think it helped that we took his binky away from him except only at nap time and night time. Daddy said he thinks he likes his bed because he's "ridin" when he's in it. Who knows, either way, he's been doing good for the past week in the big boy bed. Here are a couple pictures of the bed and him napping. We went to Chuck E Cheese for Trinity's birthday party on June 5th and Connor was getting down dancing when Chuck E Cheese came out to sing Happy Birthday. I have a video of that also.Lilly had her first taste of cereal from a spoon last week. It was so cute watching her eat it. I attached pictures and videos of her eating. I decided to hold off for a few more weeks before giving it to her again, because she kept rooting it out of her mouth the second time I fed it to her. So for now, she'll get it in her bottle.I planted flowers (finally) in my flower pots and Connor decided to help me out. I have a cute video of him babbling in his own language and a couple pictures. My friend Carrol came over with her kids to play yesterday and we got some cute pic's of the 4 kids together.I've also attached some pic's of Connor & Lilly with Grandpa and Grandma White below. They came to visit today and Connor really enjoyed their motorcycles.Here's one last cute video of Connor playing with the toilet. He kept flushing it and then saying "Ca-Ca" when he would flush it.[...]



More pic's

2008-06-05T08:50:43.873-05:00

Lilly is 11 wks old now. She had her 2 mos immunizations a couple weeks ago. I took a pic of her in the dr office prior to getting the shots. She was happy as can be until the lady poked her. She held her breath for a few seconds before she cried. It broke my heart. Later in the week she got her ears pierced and cried for a minute but was ok afterwards. She is sleeping through the night a lot of the time and other nights she wakes up only once. I'm happy to be getting a little more sleep again. lol She hasn't been throwing up anymore so I think she outgrew that finally. We switched her back to Goodstart formula now and she's doing great on it so far. She eats about 5oz a feeding now.

Connor is getting so big and talking a lot more. He says "ming ming" and "kuk" for tuck on the Wonder Pets show. He loves that show and he loves Mickey Mouse. He watches it "On Demand" on Cable all the time. LOL He knows every character on the show and says "De-De" for Daisy and "Duck" for Donald when the show comes on. He has the toy figures of the characters and when you ask "where's goofy, where's mickey, etc" he will pick up each one. I didn't even know he knew who they were. LOL He loves to dance and really gets his groove on when he's dancing. It's adorable! He loves playing outside and going down the slide is his favorite thing outside. I took him to the school playground to let him go on their slide.

Well enjoy the pictures:)

Cute Videos & Bff's

I wanted to post 2 cute videos. One is of Connor doing his "hot dog" dance from Mickey Mouse clubhouse. It's really blurry cause it was taken from a cell phone.

Terrible Two's Already

2008-05-08T16:46:37.908-05:00

My boy is officially a toddler! He isn't even 2 yrs old yet, but boy is he getting into the terrible 2's! He loves to pull the toilet paper off the roll and stuff it into the toilet. He loves to grab my cell phone when I'm not looking, although I've told him "NO" numerous times. He loves to splash in the dogs water and put his toys in it, and he loves to get on our laptop and pretend he's typing. He also likes to climb now. Today I was in the bedroom doing something and came out to check on him. I thought he was in the playroom, but found him sitting on top of my kitchen table with his hand swishing around in my cup of pop and saying "Pop" and licking his fingers. It was too cute for me not to take a picture of it before telling him "no no".

Lilly is almost 2 mos now. She smiles and coo's and loves to look around at everything. She is such a sweet little girl but boy does she have a temper on her. She started sleeping in her crib a couple weeks ago, and I think me and her both are sleeping better now. She usually goes 5-8hrs at night before waking up for a bottle. One night last week she actually slept from 9pm til 8:30am! Of course she was extremely hungry when she finally woke up.

Enjoy the pictures:)

Spring is in the air

2008-04-07T15:34:57.196-05:00

The last couple days have been so nice outside. We took Connor and Lilly for a walk and then let Connor play outside in his new sandbox. He loved it and loved playing "ball". I have pictures to post of him outside but they are still on my camera at home so I will have to post them later.

In other news, we got a new member to our family besides Lilly. We got Gus, a tortoise. LOL He is Connor's pet and was given to us by a friend of Don's. He's 4 yrs old and Connor thinks he's really cool! He stays in Connor's room and every morning when he wakes up he points to Gus's cage and mumbles something. ha ha We have a cute picture of Connor and Gus but of course it's on my camera too. I'll post the picture of Gus that I do have for now.

Lilly is doing good and getting big. She's almost 3wks old already and up to 4oz on some feedings. She is a piggy girl and weighed 9lbs, 3.5 oz last wk at the dr office. She has been having issues with projectile vomiting because she's eating too much too fast. We changed her formula to a thicker kind (Enfamil A.R. Lipil) and it's helping her to keep it down. She hasn't projectile vomited in almost a week but did throw up yesterday when daddy took her for a walk. I think she was just full and didn't burp good and got motion sickness. lol She must've inherited that from me. ha ha

Anyways, enjoy some pic's. Lilly has a grumpy look on her face, but I love the outfit she's wearing! Also check out the video of Connor riding his 4-wheeler at my parents house today :)

Welcome Lilly Grace Evelyn

2008-03-29T14:03:16.269-05:00

Sorry I haven't updated but I haven't had a chance. Lilly was born on March 18, 2008. Now we're trying to adjust to life at home with 2 babies so hopefully I can get in a routine and find time to post more. She's doing great and big brother Connor is very gentle with her.

Enjoy a few pictures of Lilly and one of Connor opening his Easter basket:)

Almost There

2008-03-06T13:16:14.337-05:00

Well I only have 9 more days until my due date! I am so excited about that. I went to the Dr yesterday for my weekly appt and she told me I'm still only 50% effaced and 1cm dilated but was able to strip some of my membranes. I'm going back on Monday and they will try to strip them again if I'm a little more dilated. I pray I am. She did mention that she could bring me in on March 17th to induce because she will be on call at the hospital. The other 2 dr's I mentioned induction too over the last few weeks were like "you have to be 41wks and probably won't get induced til the wk after Easter". Of course the dr I'm seeing on Mon is the one who told me that, but I have news for him...I'm going to tell him my primary OB said she could induce the wk before because I will still be over my due date, and she will be on call and I want HER to deliver if at all possible!!! If I have to leave a msg for her directly I will. lol I do pray I go into labor on my own though and don't need to be induced. I've heard varying stories about it. March 17 is my little cousin Kara's bday. Her brother is Connor, so if Lilly is born on her bday, then my cousin Lisa and I will have our sons with the same name and our daughters with the same birthday. lol Lisa keeps pushing for Lilly to be born that day, so she might get her wish. ha ha

In other news, Connor is getting so big. He cracks me up with some of the things he does. He loves to plug his ears to hear how sounds are distorted. He used to scream when he plugged his ears, but now he just listens to the sounds around him. He also likes to say "Hi" really fast and get right up in your face when he does it. He's a total ham. He's been trying to eat with a spoon on his own. He does ok with it but boy does he make a mess! I don't have any new pictures uploaded to post. sorry :(
