Best buds!!! Lucy and McKay have developed a very tender and rough relationship. McKay can be so sweet and caring with Lucy and then turn around and push her down just because, "I wanted to play with her." He is very aware of her needs and whenever he hears her crying on the monitor, he will quickly make sure I know that she is crying and run to open her door. Today, she was crying and he went into her room to make her happy and climbed into her crib. She was thrilled to have her best buddy!
Our little cowgirl!! Brennley absolutely loves her cowgirl boots and wears them every chance she gets. She is growing so much and is so beautiful! We love our big girl!
We had a snow day, but we called it an ICE day. It was so fun to have Brennley home for the day. The kids loved putting on all the layers of winter clothes and playing on the slippery driveway and eating icicles. Well, McKay did not like putting on layers, it brought him to tears to have two pairs of pants on.
Out little super hero - BATMAN! He is constantly "saving the day"! If he isn't tying me or Lucy up, he is pretend fighting the "bad guys".
This is Brennley's favorite outfit. I think she has a pink shirt for every day of the week. But, she loves the skinny jeans from Aunt Shauna and her rockstar shirt. She loves clothing, shopping, and especially shoes. We had a chat about high heels and she is now wearing them to church on Sundays and feels so special. She is such a lady. I asked if she wanted to wear one of her polos to school today and she said she doesn't feel girly when she wears those. I had never heard her say something like that before. I guess things are changing. Our little girl is growing up. :(
Lucy Goose! Man, this little girl is so fun! It is mesmerizing to watch her every day. She is changing so much and is learning more and more all the time. She is snuggly, she LOVES giving hugs and kisses. She will run up and wrap her arms around our legs and squeeze tight. She is also our screamer! I don't know how she doesn't get a headache from all that screaming. She isn't crying, she just screams out in short bursts, usually between 4-6pm. Tough time!
My water bottle is the community water. Every time Lucy sees it, she will say, "Uh, uh, uh" and grab for it. McKay and Lucy seem to drink all day.
Lucy loves baby dolls now. She will pick them up, give them bug hugs and then rock them. The cutest was when I was in the shower and she came to the side, pushed the curtain aside, so that she could show me her baby. She is so tender! She has also learned how to fold her arms for prayer time. She has done it a few times now and is so proud of herself afterward. She is growing up so fast.
Coldy - coldy! Layering up to play in the cold together. McKay loves Brennley so much and misses her so much when she is at school, that when she gets home, he will usually do whatever she wants to do. She loves to be in charge, and he loves having a big buddy.
One night at dinner, Lucy started pointing at the table saying her usual, "Uh, uh, uh." I thought she wanted my water, so I passed it to her and she waived her arms all around to say no. I finally realized that she wanted a fork to eat with, like everyone else. So, I got our little fork out for her. I put a bite of food on the fork and she cracked up, she was so excited. It was so adorable. Every time I put food on her fork for her, she would giggle. Such a big girl!
Western Day at school. Once again, the skinny jeans and boots! She was so excited for Western Day, mainly for her boots to serve another purpose.
We had to say goodbye to our little Camry. It was a sad, sad story. We had the Camry for about 7 years and it had over 275,000 miles on it. So, we sold it for $2,500, which was great because we bought it for $3,000. We got an email the very next day saying that Camry didn't even make it home, the man had to have it towed home. We felt awful. We had it towed to a mechanic and they said the engine seized. Sad, sad story. In the end, we sold it to a man who flips cars, for $700. It was an exciting week!
McKay was so kind to share his sucker with Lucy, so Brennley decided to join in on the fun! Lucy is sporting her amazing after nap hair!
I guess we have another boot lover in our family.
Brennley has been begging to put up the sprinkler. Any day that it was over 60 degrees, she would tell me it is burning up! Wait till the Texas summer sweetie pie! So, we got to 80 degrees one day and we pulled out the swimsuits and played in the water!
McKay loves helping mom in the kitchen. Whenever I am working at the counter, he will ask if he can get up and help me. He helps with cookies, bread, biscuits, and anything else fun!
This is a normal after school activity. Brenn loves reading and especially when she has an audience to read to.
Snuggle time with daddy!
Lucy loves daddy! She spends a lot of time with him. She is with him almost the whole time at church on Sundays. She takes naps in his arms and loves getting all of his attention.
