I love when kids are learning to talk and hearing the cute ways they say certain words.
For example... (from the mouth of Haylee)
tick tock= clock
hot dog= Mickey Mouse
Those are a few. Here is a video of one of Haylee's newest words.

She used to just say "nails" and somehow it has now become coconuts.

7 Months Old!

This month has really flown bye. Madi has the sweetest disposition. The baby will smile and cuddle with anyone. It is so precious. Madi has become an early riser since I have been back to work. I wake up at 5 every morning and someone special gets up with me. I think Madi just wants some special "mommy and me" time before I go to work.
Some of Madison's accomplishments this month include:
  • crawling
  • "semi" waving
  • drinking from a straw sippy

Madison loves:
  • bath time (I love to eat wash cloths...

and letters.)

  • being down(loose) on the floor
  • her sister
  • teething biscuits

her blanket (which is my baby blanket)

  • the dogs
  • the game "where is Madi?"

I am not sure on Madi's stats. I will have to weigh her tomorrow. She is still in 6 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

Since Madi has become mobile we have had to be creative with out barriers. Here is a picture of a barrier created by Haylee. I think she did a pretty good job! I especially like how she used the golf ball and softball. She is so creative!

It's Over...

and I am SO going to miss these two precious faces!

Tomorrow I go back to work!

For the past few months I have spent 24/7 with my babies. I am so blessed to have a job that allows me time with my children. Although I didn't do 90% of the things I said I was going to do, I did get to spend a lot of quality time with my girls. I was able to see Madi learn to sit up, crawl, and begin "talking". I have been able to watch Haylee absorb and learn so many new things. She amazes me daily with her intelligence and her desire to want to know/learn.

What I will miss the most is watching my two girls love on each other and laugh all day long. I love when Haylee wakes up in the morning and asks if her daddy is home. Then sees her sister(Madi is already awake) and says, "Hi baby Madi, you sleep good?" I love cuddling with Haylee after her nap. I love playing with Madi on the floor in the mornings, before Haylee gets up. Her favorite game right now is, "Where is Madi?". I love cooking breakfast and making cookies with Haylee. I love that Madi smiles ALL the time now, except when she is hungry. I love that Haylee talks NON STOP now.

I could go on and on about all of the little things I will miss about staying home with my babies, but I won't. I just hope that as they get older they will remember summers and the special time that we get to spend together.

Show Us Your Life- Favorite Vacation Spots

Every Friday, Kelly (Kelly's Korner) hosts Show Us Your Life. This week the theme is Favorite Vacation Spots. I decided to participate since the girlies are still asleep. I thought it would be fun to look back at some of our favorite vacation pictures.

Every vacation we go on I LOVE for different reasons. It was too hard to pick my favorite.
Grand Cayman-Honeymoon (2004)

San Fransico/Napa Valley (2005)

Las Vegas (2006)

Hawaii (2009)

Of course none of these pictures give any of these places justice to the beauty or fun we had. I wonder where our next vacation will take us??

George Strait

This past Saturday Travis and I went out with some friends to see George Strait as Reliant Stadium. It was an AMAZING concert. Opening the show was Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars), Blake Shelton, then came Sugarland! Sugarland was very good. Last, but certainly not least was George. We had a blast and sang our hearts out. I think I began to lose my voice from all the singing and yelling. :o)I took a bunch of pictures but they didn't turn out to great. Here are a few.

On the Move!

Watch out...Madi is on the move. She has been rocking for a couple of weeks and the last few days she has begun moving small "crawls (?), steps". Today was her first day to actually get across the room.
In Haylee's words "Ippeeee" (yipee).

Blogging Blues!

I haven't had much motivation to write any posts lately. Believe me, there has been plenty to blog about. So tomorrow I will be back with a new post. I promise!

I have been wanting do redo our blog and give it a new look. I tried myself but had some sizing issues. I asked my friend, Krystyn, to help me out! I love our new look. If you are in need of a new blog design check out her website.
