Children Are a Gift From the Lord

Emily had her first day of Mother's Day Out. She had a super good day! She looks very very sleepy in this picture. When you click on the picture, notice the gobs of lotion on her hand and arm. When I give E lotion or soap, she always says, "want big Mama." That means a lot. Sarah Kate is 10 weeks old. When Emily was 10 weeks, my wonderful friend, Kim, came and took lots of pictures of her in this dress, on this changing table, with this blanket. Kim is an excellent photographer. Kim, I needed you today for these. I tried to capture the same look. The pictures Kim took were so good that I had some of them framed and they are hanging in our hall. I just love my girls so much and I am so thankful for them.

Shots and Travels

Here is Sarah Kate after she got her 2 month shots. The day was better then I expected. I pre-medicated her before we went to the Dr. This made a big difference. Her little legs were very tender and red, but she was a trooper. We visited MS and South Arkansas this past weekend and week. We had a great time with family! Here is Emily and her cousin Jackson. They had so much fun running. Emily and Kay-K after Emily woke up. BIG NEWS FOR LITTLE E: She used the potty 3 times at my parents house! We are all so proud! Sarah Kate sleeping in her favorite place: a swing. I know this is a bad habit, but she loves it My parents bought this rain forest swing for her while we were at their house.

Two Months Old

Baby Sarah Kate was two months old yesterday. And...on her two month birthday, she slept 8 hours last night! I feel so good today! I have not said anything about this lately, but Emily has still been having LOTS of trouble staying in her bed. I started using a gate about 3 weeks ago and THAT was the answer. She has not gotten up one time this week in the afternoon or at night. This is a huge praise for us. If you looked on Kelly's Korner, you saw Emily visiting the wedding dress store. She had the time of her life. She has not stopped talking about it. I think we have gotten through the bed time troubles, now we must conquer potty training and getting rid of her pacifer, known as "cissy."

Matching Again

I put my girls in matching dresses today. I wanted their picture made together, but it is hard getting Emily to hold her sister for more than 3 seconds. Emily asks to hold her all the time, but then as soon as she gets her she will say, "Mama hold her!" I am thrilled to say that Sarah Kate had her best day ever yesterday. This was the first night that she did not have a 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. crying spell. Yeah! I really think she is going to turn out to be a good baby. She is 7 weeks old now. Time flies when you are having fun! Sarah Kate looks so much like Emily did at this age.
