2 Princesses

 I have two beautiful princesses. 

I love these girls so much!  It has been a ruff adjustment going from one to two but I finally fill like I am in the swing of things.  Avery is three months old now.  She is smiling and laughing, which is so sweet.  She is finally letting her Daddy hold her for more then two minutes.  She loves her sister!  When ever Anna talks or try to play with her, you can just see how happy it makes Avery!  Anna loves her sister too.  The other day we were walking to the park and Anna said "you know what I love Avery."  I said "she loves you too!"  Then Anna said "yea, were sisters, we love each other."  My heart just melted!!

Averys Blessing Day

Anna first day of preschool

I can't believe my baby is going to preschool!  Where has the time gone.  Suprisingly Anna or I didn't cry.   I just knew she was ready to go and she was really excided too.  She is going to a preschool at the high school, ,so she gets to have two high school buddies helping her in class.  That is totally a dream come true for Anna, since she LOVES 'big kids'.  I just know she is going to have a wonderful time at school!

Three years old

 I'm not really sure how it happened, but I have a three year old.  I can not imagine my life with out this sweet little girl. 

Sisters, sisters

  Anna absolutely adores here little sister.  She is always ready to help, whether its giving Avery her soother, trowing away a diaper or trying to make Avery smile.  She is such a sweet big sister!
 Anna calls Avery blueberry eyes. 
Such a silly girl.   I'm sure Anna will teach Avery all her silly tricks!

Happy Valentines Day

My one good shot of Anna!  Yea I know I am cheesy, but hey it Valentines Day!

Its not easy to take pictures of a two year old!  They do their own thing and there is not much you can do about it.  Hence the shot of her and the pillow pet.

Anna wanted me to take pictures of her baby in her tummy.  I guess my pregnancy is having an effect on her!  too funny.

I love Happy pictures, but I love the sad ones too!

Mommy take pictures of me

This morning Anna said "Mommy take pictures of me."  She then made herself a backdrop with her silky white blanket and posed herself.  Love this girl! 

My Funny little Valentine - Anna is two and a half

 I can't believe Anna is two and a half already.  The last six months I have seen my sweetie pie bloom.  Anna is can do anything she sets her mind to!  She loves to learn new things and absorbs everything like a little sponge.  Anna got a set of puzzles for Christmas and everyday she would sit and figure out how the pieces fit together and put the puzzle together and take it apart again.  She would not stop until she had every puzzle figured out. 
 Anna is Mommy's little helper.  She loves to help me cook and clean or do anything with me.  Sometimes its not the easiest thing to have her help, but I know she learns a lot from it. 
 Potty training is in full swing and we are getting really close to being done.  This little girl has a stubborn streak and will only do things in her own due time.  The key is to trick her into thinking it was her idea to start out with!
We sure love this little beauty!  She is going to be such a sweet big sister.  She likes to tell us that she has a baby in her tummy and she is going to come out soon.  We can't wait to meet our little nugget!  If she is anything like her big sister, she is going to be fabulous!
