we got new phones at the beginning of the month. amelia and i took these awesome pictures and i am still laughing at them// big girl pigtails// amelia and scarlett at scarlett's two month appointment. baby girl weighs a little over 10 and half pounds// lunch date with my cute sisters and our kids
feeding both babies a once, learning that multitasking can be so tricky// dad took us on a date to olive garden, i just love since him hold both girls// oh amelia and her sleeping in the hallway// amelia isn't allowed to flush the toilet when we're in public (because it's gross duh), which is unfortunate because it's her favorite thing about going potty. we were at the library, and before i could stop her, she pops her foot up there. hahaha this stage is the absolute best (watching her copy me)// dinosaur craft for alphabetters// millie and how she opens the fridge// tgif// we're loving this spring weather!!
amelia loves to match mommy and scarlett... faces are no exception!// my hunky man putting together a sign for scarlett's blessing luncheon// we finally went to cash in my jamba juice giftcard from a patient, amelia loved her mini smoothie// who is this huge girl????????// a name and a blessing for scarlett anne// superbaby!!!!!!!!!// loving the park, loving my solly baby wrap// me and my sleeping hardworking man.
amelia started spelling her name// i pulled out 3 month clothing and have been l o v i n g dressing scarlett up in amelia's old clothes... love her cute squishy face!// hanging out with these cuties for a day. my sister in law has suffered from ulcerive colitis and recently made a decision to remove her colon, you can read about her journey: here// scarlett sleeping just like her sister// amelia crawled allllll the way up there by herself// we went to see my niece, ava's play and amelia was so excited to give her flowers (not pictured, obviously)// getting amelia a treat because she was such a good girl. in the car she negotiated with dad on how many sixlets she wanted-- Jeremy: okay, you can have 2 when we get home. Amelia: i want 10! J: ha ha! okay, you can have five. A: i want 8! J: 6. A: 8! J: you're suppose to come down to 7... A: 8!!!! (we have a smart girl!)// amelia loves her scarlett. she puts the paci in her mouth every time she starts whining, even though she spits it out and it drives her crazy! "scarlett, you makin' me nuts!"
scarlett sitting up for a few seconds by herself// falling asleep rocking, it's a daily occurrence// amelia rides her balance bike all the time! my father-in-law doesn't get why it doesn't have pedals? ha!// amelia breastfeeding her buffalo. hey buffaloes need food too!// scarlett. just love her and her hand-me-downs// amelia getting a lesson on peeling hard-boiled eggs from ah-ma and ah-gong// found jer and scarlett napping like this. amelia must have found them first// millie and kohen jumping after (or before) sunday dinner.
how i entertain my toddler (yes, i am nursing in this picture)// love how dreamy they look// cranky little kids needed their naps!//amelia comes and wakes us up every morning by saying, "WAKE UP! THE SUN IS AWAKE!!!!" i feel inspired and dreadful at the same time// spring weather means our afternoons are spent outdoors. also, my friend michelle gave me a jar of her canned peaches and i never took a photo of it, but i will forever be grateful for that simple kind act of love// we went to a baptism for our friend issac bachman. i love when millie gets to witness sacred events such as these. it was so sweet (minus the fact that amelia screamed through the confirmations, yikes!)// whenever we take selfies, amelia insists on including her babies. and yells at me if i cut out one of their faces...// i challenge amelia to do many things. in this particular picture, it was to extend/radiate her toes as wide as mine. she sure tried her absolute hardest, with her mouth gaping open... finally, used her hands and gave me a giant smile of satisfaction, "i did it!!" ha!
i'm grateful for each month, each day, regardless of the struggle it brings. i'm grateful for my growth and i love this blog in which i can journal and remember our family's simple moments.
