Another lyla thought.. :)

Our niece Maki comes and babysits and stays the night with us often and lyla has become quite fond of her! She wears braces and so tonight on the way home she says to us... "Mom somedays I'm gonna get bracelets like Maki.. We can go buy them at the store!"

I think we will keep her!

My lyla bug

Although there are times I think I could strangle her.. (No not really...) there are times I just could squeeze her out of love! I wanted to remember what she said last night so figured I better write it down before I forget like most of her other cute and funny things she has said and done :( 
"Trigger boy will always be my prince" 

And then I died a little... But really!

Trig's 4..5..and 6 months!

well I got a little usual.. so I'll just do a quick catch up on some things our cute man is up to.

4 months:

-sleeping in his own bed and wakes up like twice a night
-loves his mama
-had his first Halloween

5 months:
-still wakes up usually twice
-rolled over for the first time on December 2 and has only done it one other time so far
-had his first Thanksgiving
-tried oatmeal and hated it the first time then loved it every time after!
-went in the bouncer for the first time and is in heaven

6 months:

-wakes up once a night
-eats whatever we give him! Likes veggies more than fruits
-had his first Christmas!
-had his first tooth poke through on January 5th
-Still likes to sleep swaddled even though he gets out of it by morning every time
-has only rolled over a handful of times..hes content not going anywhere which is fine by me!
-sits up all day long

I'm sure there is more but I can't think right now.. anyway we had a 6 month photo shoot done by the one and only Marci and I'm obsessed with every dang one! I'll just post a few..if i can narrow them down at all!

Thanksgiving 2013

This year for Thanksgiving we were able to just really relax which was so nice and much needed..and surprisingly, Tommy DIDN'T have to work. What?! So we just went to Mel and Gabe's, ate way too much food, then headed to the park where a bunch of the Stapley crew came and played kickball and just let the kids run around and it was great! (even when Lyla ran to the middle of the soccer field, pulled down her pants, and peed. Yep) I've become the worst picture taker and am so mad about it later so this is the only picture I got on Thanksgiving and it was my mom who took it. oops :( At least Trig and Avery looked cute!

I'm so grateful this year for my blessings. Thanksgiving seems to be all about food and football now days but I really enjoy the time I have to reflect on what I am grateful for. a few being..

1. My husband. words cannot describe how much I love that man. His devotion, hard work, selflessness, good looks, and love for me are a few of the reasons why.
2. My beautiful babes. Lyla has and always will be my princess..the one who made me a mother first. I will never be able to thank her for that. When I got pregnant with Trig I had no idea how I was possibly going to love another baby like I love Lyla..then he came and holy cow. I am obsessed :)
3. The Gospel. Who knows where I would be without it.
4. My amazing family.
5. My amazing in laws.

I could go on for awhile but those are the ones that stuck out in my head this year the most. I am blessed.

Halloween 2013

Tommy had to work on Halloween.. I feel like I start a loot of my sentences with that line, TOMMY HAD TO WORK.. boo.. oh well. So I dressed the kids up and went to Mel's house for some trick or treating, fire pit, and food! It was pretty fun and my kids were pretty dang cute! Ly was Cinderelli of course and Trig was a puppy.. last minute day of costume, don't judge me. Everything has been so much crazier, funner, and happier since our little man came along and Halloween was no exception!

 Ly decided she liked Trigs costume better than hers :)

A few days before Halloween we decided to paint/carve pumpkins with Brian and Jessica and their girls and it was a blast! Tommy was quite fond of his pumpkin carving skills :)

Family Pictures and Trigs 3 months

The amazing Marci took our family pictures again this year and I'm obsessed with how they turned out! I just was really hoping for one or two decent ones to use for Christmas cards but ended up loving ALL of them!! I also wanted to capture our little man at this age, and she did it once again. For your viewing pleasure...
