Anisten Giggles

Apparently Anisten thinks I'm funny. We love to make her laugh. She is such a fun, happy baby.

Retro Trike

This week is sunny and COLD! The heater in our house is working overtime and I'm worried it's going to break. Lilly, Anisten, and I escaped the indoors for a few minutes outside in an attempt to get some Vitamin D from the sun's rays. We also were trying out Lilly's new retro Radio Flyer dual-deck tricycle equipped with streamers and a bell. So far the only part she knows how to operate is the bell, but the rest is coming. She is working on learning to steer, and her legs aren't quite long enough for the pettles. I bet by this spring she will be a danger on the road.

Momo's House

Last weekend our family packed up and headed over Snoqualmie pass headed for Prosser WA, to Momo's house. I enjoyed the slow pace, visiting, looking at old pictures, Papa's scrapbook, playing games. My aunts Sally and Amber visited with us. Lilly, aka Speedy Gonzales, had fun dodging and running away from Momo who was attempting to get Lilly's socks on her. Anisten melted into Sally's arms and took what seemed like a 3 hour snooze. Rylan did a lot of snoozing for that matter. I was nursing a minor wound and am doing much better now. Momo made the best Sunday dinner, pork roast, mashed potatoes, the whole bit. I got to see my best girlfriend Abbie who was in town for her brother Dane's wedding reception. Abbie is 7 months pregnant and looking fabulous. On the drive home we were getting close to Kirkland. I told Lilly we were almost home and she would be sleeping in her own bed. She started to cry and through sobs repeated many times "Momo's house, me". Lilly wanted to go back to Momo's! I LOVE this photo of momo brushing Lilly's hair, Lilly looking in to the mirror.

Anisten's 3 Month Photos

Anisten has discovered her hands! Her little pink sausage fingers are constantly in her mouth, or attempting to grab at toys. She continues to be the easiest baby ever, sleeping most of the day. She smiles and laughs, such a happy girl. She brings our whole family so much joy.

Grandmas Love Babies



Dress-Up


We are finding out that Lilly loves to play dress up, change her clothes mid-day, and/ or just plain take all her clothes off. Ahh, the life of a two-year-old.

Too cool


Princess


What'll it be?
