Christmas Past

Here is a look back at what my cousin Breann, sister-in-law Rachel and myself looked like a year ago Christmas. We were due (from left to right) January, February, and March.
None of the babies came on the right day, and we each had different compilations, but we all had a healthy beautiful baby!
Alexa born January 12th, 2009. Joseph born February 2nd, 2009 and Daphanie born February 7th, 2009.
They were great playmates, well for the almost one-year-olds that they are. It was a big change from last Christmas when they were only babies in our bellies. To now crawling active babies! We'll just have to see what next Christmas will bring us!

Littlest Little Girl

So the littlest little girl of the family is 10 months old. She has seen every season, and in just two months she will be 1!
She has been sleeping much better these days. I let her cry it out, and now she is a much happier baby during the day! I think it is due to getting more sleep!
She is all over the house, following that sister of hers everywhere!

If you can't tell she loves this tent, Lilly received it as a gift for her birthday and it is played with everyday! Daphanie and Lillyann both love to play with it! Sometimes even when it is upside down!
I took Daphanie out for her first real snow today. She didn't like it one bit! I held her most of the time while we watched Lillyann play.
I sat her on the stairs and she was giving me some great smiles!
Other things the littlest is up to:
-Walking behind a walker, but knows its faster to get down and crawl to find that sister.
-Eating three meals a day with many snacks, and has cut down on milk.
-Still spitting up (throwing up) a lot!
-Loves playing peak-a-boo
-Still only has two bottom teeth
-Says mama and dada


Lillyann enjoys making cookies. She likes to help put all the ingredients in the bowl, and she likes to help mix them with a spoon. Of course she likes to cut them out, its just like playdough! She also loves to decorate them with icing and lost of sprinkles!
Daphanie is just eyeing those cookies that Lillyann is sprinkling...
...So I let her have one!
She really enjoyed it!

First Snow Fall

As soon as the snow started to fall Lilly seen it! She was so excited, she wanted to go outside. She was talking about snowmen, I told her there wasn't enough snow yet to build one. I waited a little longer until Daphanie was taking a nap, so it would be easier to just take out Lilly. She told me she needed gloves, a scarf and of course BOOTS! Here are a few pictures of the 8 minutes out in the snow.

Our Family has many things to be thankful for. We are thankful for our happy, healthy and beautiful little girls and our family and friends.
The weekend before thanksgiving we had beautiful weather to travel to Minnesota for thanksgiving with the large extended family of Corey's side. We had a great time, and a great meal. Here are a few pictures of the girls.
Jozie (almost 2) and Lillyann (2 1/2)
Jozie really liked playing with the baby, Daphanie. She loved giving her hugs and kisses. Daphanie didn't mind!

Funny Lolli

While driving in the car Daphanie is ahhhh-ing, you know normal baby sounds and Lilly says to Daphanie Stop ahh-ing baby!

That same day Daphanie had fallen asleep in the car, Lilly yells No sleep baby, no sleep!

When Lillyann talks about herself it is always in the third person, and she always refers to herself as Lolli, or Lollipop!

I don't know if it is every two-year old or just mine that is fascinated by commercials on TV, but every time a Wal-Mart commercial comes on Lilly says It's All-Mart mommy!

I know there is many more funny things this little girl says, but what are some funny things that little ones said that made you laugh?

Blue Kitty Cat

Can you guess what Lilly is? She came to me after she marker-ed herself all over and told me she was a kitty cat. I said "a kitty cat?" Lilly said "blue kitty cat" So if you every wanted to know what a blue kitty cat would look like, here she is:

Oh, and when I got these markers I didn't read if they were washable, I thought all crayola markers were washable. It turns out the ones they sell for $1 at back to school time are not!
A lot of people got a laugh when I went to the grocery store with my blue kitty cat!

Halloween Pictures

There wasn't many pictures taken of the girls on halloween. Here are a few of the 'good' ones. Lilly as Elmo the monster from Sesame Street, and Daphanie as a goldfish/Dorothy from Elmo's World on Sesame Street!

With Daphanie's puppy from Grandma. This puppy is the cutest little thing. You press his foot and he sings do your ears hang low, do they wobble to and fro... and on and on! It makes Daphanie smile, and Lilly too!

Still a little trush on Daphaine's face!

all smiles

Lilly playing with the leap frog letter magnets, lining them up in colors after saying them over and over. In the photo she is saying the letter "u"
Happy baby Daphanie in just a Softbums diaper

Crawling right for me with her tongue out!
Lilly saying "chezzz"
Daphanie helping me feed her some yogurt, her favorite food right now after puffs and Cheerios!
I love this picture of Daphanie, but her poor little face still has thrush all over it. We are trying out some new lotion, it seems to be drying it out! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
