My Girls


A friend of mine recently took some pictures of Paige for her birth announcement pictures. There were so many good ones, but I loved this one of both of the girls. This picture shows how much Hollyn loves her baby sister. More to come soon.

Halloween, Goodbye Grandma & More Paige

For Halloween Hollyn wanted to be a princess. Big Surprise! For the past few Halloweens I have been talking her into being something else, because I figured eventually all she would want to be was a princess. She decided she wanted to be Sleeping Beauty. Once she put on her gown and dress you would have thought she really was Sleeping Beauty by the way she pranced around and sang everywhere she went. We decided we would wait till next year to dress up Paige since she would only be a week old, so instead she wore a little Halloween outfit that said Daddy's little devil. For Halloween, my mom, Dan, Paige and I took Hollyn to the outdoor mall by our house for trick or treating. All of the stores pass out candy, so you know the candy is safe. When we got home my mom and Dan took Hollyn trick or treating around our neighborhood. Both of our neighbors are older couples and they absolutely love Hollyn. They are our Nebraska grandparents.

On the 4th my mom went back to AZ. It was sad to see her go. I can't say enough how grateful I am to my mom and all she did for us the past few weeks. Thanks Dad for letting us have Mom for so long. She took Hollyn to all of her stuff, she cooked meals, she cleaned the house, she did the laundry, and she made sure I took naps. My mom basically pampered me. I guess we still need our moms when we get older. Thanks Mom, we miss you already.

A quick update on Paige and a few pictures of our little girl. She is starting to gain a little weight, I think she might even be 7 lbs now. She is awake for most of the morning and some of the afternoon. She doesn't mind being loved on by her big sister, who is usually soft, but sometimes gets a little to excited. One of my favorite things about Paige is that she laughs and smiles constantly in her sleep. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen. She also is a cuddler. Paige can sleep all night long if she is lying on someones chest. We love you Paigey!
