Lots of Catching Up.....

There are so many things to write about this week, especially since we were in Arizona for the last week or so and haven't been home. My girls are getting SO big. I swear the grow up more every day. Alyssa got her first two teeth on Wednesday, and slept through the night three nights in a row once we got home. Last night she was up twice, but I'm hoping she goes back to the sleeping through the night tonight. She can do the army crawl now, and I really don't think it will be long before she is ALL over the house. Time to baby proof some more....
Hailey seems to get smarter every day as her vocabulary just grows and grows. She speaks in full sentences that are actually right more often than not. She's still a little confused on gender and calls daddy 'she' a lot, but we are getting there.

She had SO much fun in Arizona with her aunts and uncle, and especially grandpa. She pretty much learned that she could get anything from him. If she even looked sad or started to cry he was there with a popsicle to cheer her up. She isn't too happy that that doesn't work at home, but she will have four months with grandpa this summer and I'm sure he will have stocked up. We also got a new car while we were in Arizona. It is a 2005 Toyota Camry and we love it. Our Oldsmobile was getting old and having more and more problems, so we went to the dealership we had bought it from to look around and they found us a great deal on this Camry. It will be MUCH safer for the girls and I driving all over the country this summer. Sorry I don't have any pictures of the trip itself...of all things to forget my camera was at home on the charger the whole week. Bummer! I guess it's better than last time we went down when I forgot all my under clothes...

Here are a few pictures of the girls and one of a layout I did last night to enter in a local contest...if anyone has any opinions on that, or any other comments just for fun I would LOVE to hear them!

I love this picture of Alyssa, as long as you ignore my scrapping mess in the background...

She's getting so close...I'm not sure I'm ready for this!

I don't know what is up with this face, but I still think she's adorable. I might be biased though.

This is the layout I did for the contest. The theme is spring. This picture is Hailey about 2 years ago, but I just did the layout last night...

Steffani, I loved seeing you guys again. I sure do miss our trips to BR, don't you? Your girls are growing up fast. It really does seem like Hailey was just born a few months ago. Jay & I can't believe how much Alyssa looks so much like Jed & Hailey. By the way, I love your layout. You are sooooo creative.
