Lately...

Let's see if I can try to sum up the past two weeks and give you a glimpse of our life lately...

Alyssa Lately...

-is climbing into and onto everything...

 ...the rocking chair

 ...the dishwasher


 ...stools


 ...chairs

...and the futon
{and I left out all the naked ones}

-had her toenails painted for the very first time!

-is talking more and more.  Not actual words necessarily, but lots of  "yes" "dada" and little conversations that must mean something to her.
-is eating like I've never seen a baby eat.  She eats and eats and eats....
-is getting better with drinking her milk and her water
-found out that she loves the rain, sprinkling on her face


-is taking more and more steps on her own everyday.  But still prefers to get down on her hand and knees when she wants to get moving.  And she has been doing this silly crawl on all fours...

-amazes me every day with just how cute and sweet she is

Keira lately...

-is still a pretty rebellious 3 year old.  Throws fits when she doesn't get her way, goes in time out a lot, refuses to sit at the dinner table the whole length of dinner time, does not listen well at all, and says she "does not like being patient"...basically she is a handful
-but she is still so sweet.  She tells us she loves us all the time, that we make her happy.
-and she is almost always sweet to her sister, sings to her when she cries and tells her it's going to be alright
-but she still steals her passy.  She sneaks in her room in the mornings, wakes her up and takes her passy.  We used to wonder where all the passys were going, but it seems Keira tries hiding them where only she knows where to find them later when we're not looking.  Just found one down in the sofa yesterday.  
-says the funniest things and always makes us laugh...
-I told her we were going to paint our nails "hot pink" and she said "Noooo I don't want to put it in the microwave!"
-we adore her and are working on the listening and behaving.  But she is three...what can we expect??

Our life lately...

-We had started taking Cooper for truck rides again before we got the new car.  It was a bit cramped but the girls loved having him sit in the back with them, and they giggled most of the ride.

-Then we bought a new car!


{and Scott was determined to take pictures of me driving it for the first time...making me look like a nerd}

-Thankfully, the dealership had a kids play area since the girls were with us for the several hours that we were there {we wouldn't have taken them, had we known we were actually going to buy a car}.  But it worked out.  They behaved very well considering.  I signed the paperwork very quickly, and took the kids to play and take walks outside while Scott signed the rest





-Nothing new, but we went fishing...








-And on the way to the pond, we spotted my aunt working this event on the side of the road.  And we stopped.  They had a little petting zoo, bouncy houses, a pony and a horse.  Things that Keira, being three, should love, but instead she shys up and won't participate in anything.  But Alyssa rode the pony and loved it...










-Alyssa still pulls out all my q-tips, pretty much every day.  And when Scott picked them up one morning, before I was up, I woke up to this...

A Sweet "I love you" message made out of q-tips...how sweet!  Love him.

 Instagram lately...













Happy Friday!!  Make it a great day!!
