Ok, after almost exactly a year of not posting (last post was Ellie's 1st bday party! Crazy!)......I'm back on this beast!! :)
I gave our blog a little face lift and now...we're ready to go again! I hope the 2 people who read this blog thoroughly enjoy this! LOL!
Anna is 3 1/2 months old now!! She is doing great, getting sooo big. She smiles a lot and loves to laugh and talk to us with her sweet little baby coos. Her favorite is "ooooowwwwww". She is such a content and happy baby. She's also doing this funny thing where she does, what I call "sit-ups" where she raises her head and feet when she's laying down. It's so cute and funny. Her favorite toys currently are a pink rattle and an orange stuffed monkey. Anna is such a sweetie pie. She is almost always in a good mood and just loves hanging out with everyone!
Ellie is about to turn 2 years old on August 6th! I can't believe I'll have a 2 year old!! She seems like such a little girl now instead of a baby. It makes me so sad, but happy at the same time, strange feeling. I love her so much, she is such a sweet, smart, loving, inquisitive little girl. Every day with her is wonderful. Ellie has always been a strong-willed independent baby, and for the past year has just been soooo active!! She tries to climb on everything! I say she's 70% Angel, 30% Monkey. (I had to remove my kitchen chairs because she kept trying to climb on the table and counter tops and I have 4 gates up in the house!) Besides from being an excellent climber, Ellie can also talk really well. She repeats everything and I feel like she says like 5 new words a day! We've been working on our ABC's and 123's and she's getting very good at them. And lately Ellie has been saying multiple word thoughts and occasionally a full (short) sentence. They are mostly commands, ha ha, little bossy girl!!! Examples: "Mommy, sit, here!" "Mommy, this way." The other day I was singing while making her breakfast and she said, "Mommy, no, it's ug." (ug meaning...ugly. I died laughing!!) She is so much fun, growing up too fast and entertaining me all the way!!! And she definitely keeps me busy 24/7!!!
Jamin is still working at Halliburton. He has been traveling every once in a while for his job. Next week he'll be in Durango, Colorado for a week. :) I bet the weather will be nicer there than it is here! He has also been super busy the past year doing what he has wanted to do for a long time...buy rental properties. We currently own 2 rental properties in the Spring area. I'm his little assistant and I help do all the busy work that comes with managing properties. We've had fun with it so far.
Though I am a stay at home mom...I don't eat bon-bons and watch Days of Our Lives all day...contrary to the housewife stereotype. LOL!!! I've been super busy lately with 2 babies under the age of 2!!! We go to library story time and also a weekly playgroup with other mommies and babies. And I'm trying to make it to the YMCA a couple of times a week to work off this baby weight. (I do have 2 weddings that I'm a bridesmaid in coming up!!) Jamin's real estate stuff keeps me busy too. And...this year I am the Chairwoman for the Junior League of North Harris and South Montgomery Counties's Cookbook Committee. We have been doing tons of stuff for our cookbook this year. Really exciting! They are great books! (go online to buy one!! jlnhsmc.org) So, needless to say...I feel busy, but I am enjoying all the hats I wear!! :)
Below are some recent pictures of my cutie pies! :)
