She is: Sitting up all by herself
Rolling around like a mad woman
drooling like there's no tomorrow
Babbeling...John swears she says Dada.

It was such a cool thing to see. It is such a powerful form of nature. I felt bad....some of the girls stopped at the restroom and missed it. And Melissa was feeding Amy in the car so she missed it too. Sad :(
This was the hat the Kayleigh wore most of the time since it was just a tad chilly for her little head. It looked so stinkin' cute on her.

She is the one of the happiest babies you will ever see. But she drools like crazy! She loves chewing on her middle and pointer finger of her left hand. She still takes a binky or "bliky" as Lucas calls it but she is starting to really only like it when she is sleepy. The rest of the time she screeches and babbles. She is very vocal...kind of like Lucas was when he was a baby.
She is rolling over like crazy. This picture is of her when she was enjoying some floor time. She definately didn't start out facing this direction but after about 20 minutes she wore herself out and ended up like this. So cute.

This picture was from our trip to the Leid Children's Museum. He said, "look mama, I a fireman."
With a face like this.....it is a good thing he is cute cause he definately tests my patience! But man, I can't imagine my life without him!
She is a super happy smiley little girl. She LOVES to watch Lucas play around her. Lucas can get her laughing. It is one of my favorite things. She is very much a mama's girl.....when she doesn't feel good or is tired. She also has two teeth....well sort of...they just poked through so I don't know if that qualifies as "teeth" yet.
Her new favorite activity is playing under the jungle gym thing. We also have little toys hanging from her carseat....she loves it. She played like this for probably 45 mintues before she fell asleep. She loves reaching and grabbing onto things. She has a really strong grip too so if she gets ahold of your hair or your glasses it takes some help to get her to let go!
We are so blessed to have this sweet little girl in our family! We love her oh so much!

Sun Valley is an absolutely beautiful place to go. Those mountains are GI-NORMOUS! We would measure everything in Pomerelle runs...Example: That run is at least 4 big lift runs a Pomerelle.

This is Lucas in the garage sitting in the bin that has dog food in it....the blue thing that it is sitting on is a 50 gal drum of water...How did he manage that...no idea but we had dog food everywhere in the garage...thank goodness for the shop vac Mom and Dad got us for Christmas!

Let me just tell you a story:
It was Friday March 5th and John was in England again for the second time in a month for work. I was at home by myself with Lucas and Kayleigh. John had left on Wednesday and wasn't coming back until Sunday. Wednesday and Thursday were okay...we survived with very little drama....whoa....if I only I knew that it was the calm before the storm. Friday Lucas woke up extra early and came into my room. He climbed up and snuggled for a minute before I turned on some cartoons so I could get a little extra sleep. After we went downstairs to eat breakfast...that's when the drama started.
While Lucas was eating breakfast I started working on my lesson for YW on Sunday. I decided to make each girl a little handout to go along with the lesson. I went upstairs got the paper cutter and some ribben and started making the handouts....I had about 6 of them made when Lucas came over with his "Big Truck" and rammed it into my glass of water and spilled the full cup all over the compter desk, completely soaking everythign I had been working on for the previous hour.
Then as I was cleaning that up he played for a little while. I decided that it was time for a nap cause Mommy was TIRED!! Lucas on the other hand, not so much. I told him he had to play quitely in his room...that lasted a whole of about 20 minutes. So I put the child door lock thing on the inside of his door so that I could close my eyes for a minute without worrying about what he was into. About 20 minutes later I heard a very loud BANG BANG BANG....but I was coming out of a much needed nap and thought I might be hearing something. Oh no...it was Lucas using a plastic baseball bat to break off the door lock making a gigantic hole in the back of his door! And the best part is after he escaped he went downstairs and did the same thing to the 3 doors downstairs that he can't open because of child locks!
I obviously took the bat away and hid it...After lunch he went about the living room playing while I returned to work on my lesson. In the two minutes that I didn't pay attention to what he was doing he opened a gallon ziplock bag full of dog food all over the kitchen floor. So while I cleaned that up, he climbed on the counter and dumped a whole box of cereal on the counter! By this point I had just about had it anyway....John called about this time to say "goodnight"...I immediately started crying telling him how much I wished he was home...blah blah blah. He calmed me down and made me feel better.
Things were okay for a little bit and then.....he put my cell phone in my glass of water....yes! It shorted out the screen and so now I can't see if I have any missed calls or texts or anything. This was the LAST STRAW! I called my mom bawling my eyes out. While on the phone with her, Kayleigh started screaming..but it was sort of muffeled...so I went into see what was wrong and saw Lucas sitting on top of her in the swing! My baby was getting squished by her big brother!!
Luckily for me after no nap and a day of mischeif he went to bed early without a peep! It was his only saving grace....
If I survive this kid....it will be a miracle!
She is finally starting to fit into her carseat....do you remember this? So tiny I had a hard time making sure she was strappped in correctly....
And now...she fits in great! She is not very long but she is growing.
