Leah is 2 months!

Our sweet girl is growing like a weed! In the last month she has gained 2 lbs, 11 oz and grew 1 and 1/2 inches. She is in the 50% in both height and weight. She is such a sweet ans spunky girl already! She knows what she wants and will let everyone know. She loves to be held, but also likes her time to wiggle on the floor. :)

A few more things she is doing:
-smiling more
-cooing like crazy
-hitting her toys in the bouncy chair (a few times)
-holding her head up like a champ
-sucking on her hand
-looking at her hands

She really is such a gift and we cherish her so much! Dressing her is fun because of the accessories. :)

Safe in daddy's arms. :)

Beautiful and such an amazing gift. Lord, please protect and lead her to You always...

Happy :)


Over it.

I just want to say, I love my family!!! Thanksgiving is around the corner and I am so thankful for all of our friends and family who love and support us! Aaron and I are so blessed with moms and dads who will come over last minute to babysit and spend time with our kids! We have never paid a babysitter, amazing!

Anywho, Andrew is such a sweet Big Brother! Anytime Leah is fussy, he is the first one by her side, putting her paci back in, getting her a bow (which he thinks she needs :), or blanket. Every time he does not know where sissy is, he asks, "Where did sissy go". He loves his sister and I pray he will look out for her like he already is! He melts our heart with how much compassion and love he is already showing her. He is a bit jealous, but it is more directed at Aaron and I.

More new things Drew has learned:
-he can sing many songs
-he can count to 14
-he knows his colors! (i didnt think he knew them, but tested him and he got them right!)
-asks to play with friends (specifically: Charlie, Shiloh, Levi, Bailey, Marley, Sedona, Rylie, and Luke) I love that he remembers his friends names! :)
-tells us what he wants to eat (his favorites are: bean burritos, ravioli, noodles, pears, carrots, and chicken sticks)
-can step up and down stairs, climbing to the top and slide down the slide all by himself
-makes friends at the park (he made a new friend Mary when we went to the park) He says, "come on guys, no running (i think he hears this at daycare)"
-he asks for help when he needs it
I am sure he is doing other things, but dont remember. (probably because I tired from getting up with little Leah)

Leah's new things...
-smiling more often
-rolling to her side
-holding her head up like a champ
-grabbing things (my hair, blankets, and her elephant)
-tracking us

We are so blessed with sweet children! I am so thankful for them! Here are a few pictures from our photo session and a few random snapshots.

My mom came over so we could go watch our friends play and they had a fun time takng pictures! So cute! :)

As my friend Susan says, "surrender to the sleep God"

Leah looks terrified... hilarious. If only see knew what is to come with an older brother. :)

A few from our newborn session... love my family!

Leah's first church service! :)

Leah went to church for the first time Sunday, November 6th, 2011! We all got up and showered and then took a few pictures! We did not put her in the nursery yet. I think we will wait another month or 2. For service our church has a family room where you can go, which is great! The Smith's hung out with us in there which was fun. They have twin girls, McKenzie and McKinley, who are 3 weeks older than Leah. Hopefully they will become friends! :) Here are a few pictures from the day...

What? I know I'm cute!
Love her outfit! Leggings... I think so! :)

She is already a pro at knowing what to do! haha!

Sesame Street 2nd Birthday Party!

Today we celebrated Andrew's 2nd birthday with our friends and family! It was a wonderful time of fellowship and celebration! Andrew has brought us so much JOY and we are so thankful to God for him! It was great to see all of Drew's friends come and play. They had fun running around, blowing bubbles, eating, and riding on all the fun toys he has. We love hanging out with all of our family and friends! Andrew was given such great gifts and I know he will use them all! He kept wanting to open every one as we unwrapped them. :) Too sweet! Here a few pictures from the day! :)

Really cute cupcakes :) Becca did a great job! :)
