Fun Times at Home

This outfit was given to Lydia by a good friend of mine. Lydia never even wore it and no pictures of her wearing it. So Rachel gets the honors of her picture in it. This is the only picture I have of her in it without her crying. She must not like the feel of it on her skin. As soon as I took it off, she was a happy camper!She did not get any cute afghans or stuff like that since she did not have a shower.(#2 babies and after get the shaft) so I am going to let Rachel have one of Lydia's. (Lydia won't know any different!!) Each one is special and should have something special for them when they were a baby!
Rachel is growing like a weed! I can't believe how much until I try on outfits that use to be big on her, now have a hard time snapping on her. She laughs at a wall, coos when I talk to her and can go from happy to pissed in 2 seconds flat. Avery reminds me of the meaning of the name Rachel "peaceful as a lamb". I see Avery and me in her! We are truely blessed!!
This is Lydia clutching her sack lunch on her first day of school! She has started a Mother's Day Out program at a local church. She goes from 9-2 on Tues. and Thurs. I hope she likes it and does well. I wanted her to be around other kids her own age to help her with her speaking skills. This girl is smart but she isn't talking as well as other children her age.( go figure that one , she is Heather's daughter and isn't talking? I know she will catch up) I have not bought her a lunch box yet, looking for a real cute one.
Miss Lydia loves her swing set! It has been cool enough to be able to get both girls out! Lydia could stay outside all day! Here in this pic she kept trying to grab my camera and she was laughing and having a blast! She loves the see-saw. She says" up-and-down" as she swings on it! I am going to love it when Rachel can join her on the other side!

Family of Four

We are now a family of four! Miss Rachel Leanne came on July 3,2006. It is a big job dealing with two but loving it! She looks like her Daddy I've been told. She is starting to smile and "coo" at you. Lydia is still not liking the sharing of attention but we try to let her help as much as possible. Rachel turned 2 months old yesterday and goes to the doctor tomorrow. She is crying now so this is .... Later!!
