She smiles ALL the time. It is my favorite thing.

 She also scowls at me every once in a while. Which is also very cute.

2 Months

I'm a little behind, as Lyla turned two months at the end of August, but I've been busy. Lyla is growing and doing great--she weighed 10 pounds 12 ounces at her checkup and was 24 inches long. They never tell me her percentage anymore (I always have to ask and then it takes them about 20 more minutes to do that so I just never asked). My (and the doctors) only concern is her goopy eyes--they are pretty bad. The doctor told me I would need to bring her back at 3 months if they aren't any better.

She got 4 shots. She was pretty upset afterward but calmed down quickly. She also had a small fever that night.
 True Love 

 Here are lots more pictures from the past couple weeks...
 I LOVE all her expressions. So funny.
 Seriously, Lyla is very loved by her brother. He always wants to be near her and loves holding her hands.

  I just don't know what to do with this girl's mullet. It is WILD.

 Addie was sick for a few days. Poor thing.

Sam! This is what the kids do when I'm on the phone with you. 

First Day of Preschool

Tuesday was Adalynn's first day of preschool. A lady I visit teach teaches preschool out of her home and I lucked out and got in with her. It is two days a week in the afternoon. You might think Tuesday and Thursday would be my "happy" days having both kids gone, but they are anything but relaxing. Devin goes to school at 8:00 and gets picked up at 10:30. We go home eat lunch, then leave at 11:45 to get Addie to preschool by noon. Then it is time to pick her up at 2:00. Thankfully, Jared has been taking Devin in the morning and the girl that teaches preschool is bringing Adalynn home for me since she picks up kids at at 2:00 and we live right by the school. I honestly don't think I would survive if I didn't have the help.

Addie seemed excited for preschool. She walked right in, took off her shoes (she must have felt right at home) and started playing with legos. When she came home she stripped down to her underwear and took a three hour nap. So whatever they did, wore her out!

Here are a few pictures. I tried talking to Adalynn about her favorite things, but every answer was princess. Our conversation went something like this...
Me: Addie what is your favorite food?
Adalynn: Princess food
Me: Okay. What is your favorite candy?
Adalynn: Princess candy.
Me: And your favorite tv show?
Adalynn: Princess shows!

I just decided to fill in her answers for her.
