I really can't believe that Lucy is almost three months old and this is the first time I have done this but today, I "twinned" my children. Obviously since they are not of the same gender, "twinning" is really more like coordinating, but you get the point. I found these adorable outfits at Jaine and Jack, one of may favorite places to shop for the kids, and even better they were on sale! Cory's mom had a little Sip and See today for our kids. It was the first time most of her friends have had the chance to meet, not just Lucy, but Christopher too. So it was a great excuse to dress them in their new clothes! Pretty cute don't you think?

Just wanted to let the grandparents know I have added all our Disney pictures to the Shutterfly collection. They are there for you to view and order if you wish!

I am almost three months into motherhood of two and am happy to report that things are starting to get easier. I'm getting better at getting us all out the door and taking them places is seeming less overwhelming. Today we met some friends at Willow Bend to play and I didn't bother with my monster double stroller. Instead, I just had Christopher walk with me and it wasn't so bad. We even snuck into a couple of stores while we were there and he cooperated nicely.

For quite some time, I have spent many a night searching on Pyzam for a new cute background for my blog. I finally decided on one but once I got it uploaded, I did not like it. Unfortunately everything that usually resides on the right hand side of my blog got deleted...nice. So, I've just spent the last hour getting it all back up there (if any of you know of a quick easy way to fix these situations I'd love to know for the future)! I'm still missing a few things but hopefully I can find them again eventually. At any rate, I am DONE trying to be crafty with my background. Basic colors will do just fine.

I have set up a photo album "collection" on Shutterfly. I have included albums all the way back to when Christopher was born. So far, I haven't put other albums from vacations or anything on there but I will, it is a work in progress. At any rate, you can check out the collection by clicking on the link over on the right under "Little Snapshots." I decided to do this mostly for the benefit of the grandparents (you guys should be able to order any of those pictures that you want) and now, I don't have to try and remember to send them out anymore. I can just update here on my blog! Greatness, one less thing for me to try and remember to do these days! Enjoy!

Well, it has been a while since I've had time to post. We just returned tonight from spending the last five days out in California. My brother graduated and then we extended our stay to make a trip to Disneyland. I'm going to try and put a slide show together of our pictures and hopefully will get that posted soon. I made a few other posts of what's been going on with us in addition to our big vacay! A good time was had by all!

My sweet 87 year old grandmother once said that she always wanted to have a preacher in the family. Well, this past Saturday, her little wish came true when my brother graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Just a couple of cute pictures of our sweet baby. She is quite the little grinner!! She is 11 weeks now and has survived her first family vacation (another post on that to follow). She was a real trooper and even continued to sleep through the night despite the 2 hour time change in California!

We recently spent some time out at Cory's parents with his family. Christopher has an absolute ball out there. This time was especially fun because we had some baby kittens to play with (or should I say, torture?). He also loves to feed the horses, ride on Grandad's tractor, and swim while we are there. Here are a few pics...

Miss Lucy Baylor is 2 months old! I can't believe it, time has really flown by! I took her to the doctor today for her two month check up and our baby girl is doing just great. She now weighs 10 pounds 13 ounces and is a little over 22 inches long! She is smiling at us all the time now which is such a delight. She is still nursing well and has recently been giving me a seven hour stretch at night! We are overjoyed with her and Christopher still warms our heart daily with how sweet he is to her. Cory and I feel so blessed to have such an amazing little family!

Some very dear friends of ours, the Leuchters, came to visit us last week. They brought their baby girl Adelyn, who happens to be our goddaughter, with them and we were able to meet her for the first time. What an absolute angel she is. I really think I only heard her cry once the entire time they were here! Christopher didn't know what to do with himself with two baby girls in the house! He was his sweet self, always wanting to hug on them and saying "I love both babies."
It was so great to get to spend that time with Scott and Dena. Now that we are all parents, things have really changes since we first met them. But it is so much fun to be parents together and I look forward to watching our children grow together! Thanks, Leuchters for making the trip to Texas! We love you guys!
