What are we up to?

We are living in Woodbridge VA and loving it. We now have 2 beautiful little girls, Evelynn and Cora, and look forward to the adventures that are coming our way. We have such a blessed life together and are thankful everyday for our eternal family.

I am starting to like halloween more and more every year! Now that we have a little one it is even more fun. This year we dressed Evie up as a little lady bug. I really wanted to make her something else but I thought about it to late so I couldn't order the costume and it was going to be like 40 dollars!!! I can't believe how expensive costumes have gotten. Were talking maybe 2 yards of fabric to fit a baby Evie's size! CRAZY.. so I decided to just make her a costume. I am happy to say that I made her entire costume for under 10! :) Awesome huh! It was actually pretty fun too!
Anyway.. We went to the ward trunk or treat on thursday and Evelynn won the "sweetest costume" award! It was a pretty fun party! Hopefully on Halloween we can get a picture of her smiling. She was very tired that night!

This is a picture of us holding her prize. What a lucky girl!

what a silly baby

Evelynn is getting such a fun little personality! I have to say that I am loving the stage she is in right now. Sometimes she will just start laughing really hard at nothing and it is the cutest thing ever! She loves more and more stuff every day and has started putting EVERYTHING in her mouth. Her favorite thing to suck on is her hands though.. the are bright red and dry from all the sucking but no matter how much I pull them out they will go right back in! ANYWAY.. I wanted to post a couple pictures of some of the funny things she does on a daily basis..

This picture is one on my favorites! As you can see, Evie likes to pull her blankets over her face while she sleeps. I did not put that blanket there, she just always seems to find it and pull it right over her eyes. Its a good thing that the blanket has holes in it! :) so cute! This is how she likes to swing. Legs up in the air! She scoots down into the hole and puts them right up. She is nothing but smiles normally when she is swinging like this!!
The other day I was busy doing hair at home so Preston had to feed Evie. After fighting with him for a couple mins it turned out she just wanted to hold her bottle herself. This is a cute way to hold the bottle huh!!
She does lots of other funny, unique things I just have not been able to get them on film yet. But I will someday and then they will be on here!! We are crazy about this little girl!

This is a little late

Our baby girl is 3 months old! She is still the sweetest thing ever and I can't believe how fast time has gone already.. Here are a couple pictures

A couple fun things about Evie at 3 months..
she is a chunky little thing!
she has started laughing and we can't get enough of it!
still loves bath time
is happiest when she is standing up and looking at everything around her
is really interested in what Tonka is doing. She will stare at him for a long time if he is anywhere near her
loves it when Preston comes home from work
sleeps like a champ! and we are thrilled about it
and never seems to stop talking. She makes so many new noises everyday that all I can do is laugh about it!

We love her so much and are so blessed to have her as a part of our family!

Who would have thought?

Who would have thought that I would become a HUGE cry baby? I seriously cry every time Evelynn does something new. I don't think I want her to grow up.. lol. The other day Preston and I were running some errands around town so Evelynn had to be in her car seat for a while. Preston found this little toy in the back of my car that you can put across the car seat. She has never liked it much before so I just took it off and figured I would try it later. Well.. Preston put it on her seat and she had very little interest just like before. A couple mins later we were talking in the front seats and I started to hear her playing with her toy in the back. I got pretty excited.. lol.. then she figured out how to make it play music. She was slapping that toy around so much that the music could not keep up. It was so cute! So there I am driving the car and crying about how big my little girl is getting.. hahahaha.. She is so much fun and I love watching her learn every day. I hope I learn to not be such a cry baby but who knows if that will ever happen!
