Cute Moment

Early today, while I was cleaning the house, Hailey came and asked me to paint her toenails. If I were a better mother, I would have stopped cleaning and taken the time to paint her toenails for her....but then I would have missed a very sweet moment. I came out from doing laundry to find Jed painting Hailey's toenails. He is such a great dad. I wish I had had my camera, but he probably would have stopped if I had tried to take a picture. =)

Family Updates

So life seems to fly by these days. Alyssa will be 2 months old on Thursday and I can't believe all that has happened in that time. I just thought I would try to get up a quick update. Hailey is growing like a weed. She had an appointment the other day and she is measuring at 36 1/2 inches and almost 28 lbs. The difference between holding her and holding Alyssa is crazy. Alyssa was just measured today and she is just over 9 lbs. But is already 23 3/4 inches. That is over 4 inches longer than when she is born....I have two weeds! I think I will keep them in my little family garden though since they are so precious. Alyssa is smiling quite a bit now...especially in the morning. I don't know what's up with that because I'm certainly not a morning person. I guess she might turn me into one. It's so funny though because sometime usually around 7:00 she will wake up and smile a lot for a little bit, then she will want to eat and go back to sleep so we pretty much just stay in bed and it's not quite as bad. Hailey has been sleeping until around 9:00 lately and then she comes and climbs into my bed to tickle me. It's pretty cute.
We went today to try to take Christmas pictures, but Hailey wouldn't cooperate so I guess we will have to try again some other time. I got a couple really cute pictures of Alyssa though. I will try to find a place to scan them in when I get them back. I think that is about it for now. We are going to a wedding this weekend so it will be fun to see friends and family. Oh yeah, and basketball preseason has started so we got to watch the Suns kill the Jazz last night. It was AWESOME! GO SUNS!!!!!
