slacker or busy mom?

i can't decide whether i am just a slacker when if comes to this blog thing, or i'm just a typical mom.....busy! i'll go with busy. alaina just turned 4 months last week. she is a little over 12 1/2 lbs and 25 1/4 inches long (her feet are already at the end of her carseat.) she just started eating carrots a few days ago....loves them. however, i don't understand how she is getting any nutrients from them seeing as how they come out the other end looking like they did when they went it. gross!!! oh, she is finally getting hair, you probably can't tell from the picture, but she really does have a lot of fuzz up there.

kylee can't stop talking about chuck e cheese and what costume she wants for halloween. (halloween, isn't that like three or four months away?) for now she is planning on going to chuck e cheese "all by my self when i'm four," and she is going to be batman for halloween. i wonder how long that will last? she really is getting too big, too fast.

oh boy! the lake

it's only the beginning....our first of many trips to papa and ohie's lakehouse. so much fun i must say. it was so incredibly hot out....we had to be extra careful with the girls, but they did great. kylee had a blast, especially floating on the raft with me (her personal boat with oars.) it's amazing how only a few hours out there could wear you out so fast. we were exhausted and a little sun burned. i can't wait for more weekends like it. thanks mom and dad.

busy, busy, busy

i must say that i have been negligent in blogging. so much going on....trying to get this business thing going, keeping up with the kiddos, and many other odds and ends projects around the house. yeah, alan and i spent our entire evening moving furniture around the house. we moved things upstairs and downstairs and from room to room. we felt we needed a little more running room in the living room. with all the toys, bouncy seat and whatever else walks in, it was feeling a bit cramped. so....our dining room is no longer a dining room, it's another sitting area, with a loveseat and everything. know i am in the process of decorating it. i have about a thousand projects all going at the same time and none of them ever seem to get finished....wonder why??? yeah, if you wouldn't mind praying for me i have been feeling a little under the weather lately. i have been having these nasty stomach aches on a daily basis and they are not in the least bit fun, especially when you have two of the cutest girls wanting your attention and i can't give it completely because i feel like total crap! anyway, more complaining. all, truely is well!

my "gummy bear"

it seems as though she has changed so much in just a few weeks. three and a half months! i am so in love. just as kylee will always be my "kylee bug" (she's made it a point to remind me lately that she's "my bug") alaina will be my "gummy bear." they are both so darn cute.

as i sit here right now kylee keeps running back and forth to the door in excitement every time she hears the "fire-pops." this year we decided to stay at home for the forth of july considering that alaina is so sensitive to noise....we figured fireworks would be a bad idea. but we didn't want kylee to completely miss out so here in a little bit we are going to light off a few of our own...oh, that's illegal isn't it....oops! she is so excited, been waiting all darn day. it's probably been one long day....among many others i'm sure.
