Lilypie - Fifth Birthday

Lilypie - Second Birthday

Friday, March 27, 2015


One day this week, Collin decided we should go camping.

He set up our "tent" and "sleeping bags," and we had fun!

piggie tails

Piggie tails are one of the few hairstyles we do for Lauren so far.

She's adorable with them in, and then she's hilarious once we take them out.

Sweet, silly baby!


This week we met some friends for a swim date up at The Lodge.

The kids really love the splash features.

We need to visit the pool more often, because we really had a blast!

Daddy's copycat

Cutie pie found her daddy's hat and pencil on the table and decided she better wear it.

Pretty proud of herself, obviously!

Sweet girl.

Lauren loves her crib

 It's so fun to watch Lauren sleep.

Sometimes she squishes into the corner of her crib.

Sometimes she stays buried by blankets.

Sometimes she spreads out a little bit.

When she wakes up, she likes to stay in her crib for awhile.  She sings and works on two important tasks:  undressing her baby doll and undressing herself...


Collin is excited for the season of sidewalk chalk.

He likes to be up high on this swing.

Lauren is pretty impressed by her newfound ability to copy Collin by swinging on her belly.

We are loving the time we've been able to spend playing outside!

concrete day

Exciting news here:  Papa and Grandma's new garage = construction fun!

"Mama, a pumper truck is pulling in!"

This was our first time seeing a pumper truck, so it was pretty exciting.

Once they figured out how the concrete truck and pumper truck worked together, Collin and Lauren were ready to imitate.

Happy lady.

Happy dude.

The result of an entire morning working outside?

Yeah, she's in there... :-)
