Sweet Baby Girl

This afternoon I was changing Alexis and she was kicking, talking, and just so happy, which is her usual disposition; so I decided to get my camera back out and take a few pictures of her. She is so happy and smiley all the time. We have been truly blessed with such a happy and pleasant baby. We are so thankful for Alexis and the joy she has added to our family. We love her very much.

Here's one of my favorites without the headband.

A Morning in PJ's

This morning we didn't have to set the alarm clock (however my smallest alarm clock woke me up at 6:00 am and my bigger alarm clock was up before 7:00am), so I didn't get to sleep late, but that was ok. We didn't have anywhere to go or anything to do. It was nice...mornings like these don't happen often in our household where we can just relax. So, us girls enjoyed the morning lounging around in our pj's.

My two sweet girls. We have been double blessed with such sweet girls.

Alexis even had a little bit of bed head this morning. I think its cute. 

However, I fixed it in this one.

Alexis LOVES to stuck on her two fingers and twist her hair. She especially does this when she's sleepy. She gets the hair twisting from me. I have always twisted my hair and still do when I'm tired, sick, or reading a book.

So, I only have one picture to post because that was all that Madalyn wanted to cooperate for. And I didn't even try to get one of Alexis. But oh well....at least I did get one smiley picture. :0) We went to my parents' house this past weekend. It was our first time up since Thanksgiving...and it was Alexis' first road trip. She did wonderful! She slept the whole way up and slept the whole way back.  Madalyn talked the whole way up but did sleep most of the way back. :0)

Our Easter Weekend

Our Easter weekend started early Saturday morning. Kevin and I dropped the girls off at his parents' house at 7 am, and we headed to Charlotte. Kevin is looking for a new (used) truck and he found one on the Internet that he wanted to go look at. We spent most of the day truck shopping, but didn't find anything. While, we were truck shopping Madalyn was having fun. She went to Grandma Kitty's house and dyed eggs with some of her cousins and got to decorate cupcakes.

Then when Kevin and I got home that afternoon, we took the girls to an egg hunt at our church.

Madalyn was checking to see what kind of candy was inside.

They had a few crafts the kids could do.

Madalyn got her face painted for the first time. By the time we were in the car leaving, she was trying to get it off her face.

Snack Time


The Easter bunny came to visit the girls.

We went to church. They didn't have children's church this morning, so Madalyn sat with us in big church.

We had lunch with Kevin's family at Grandma Kitty's house.
The cousins had fun playing and hiding/finding Easter eggs.

Happy Easter and Alexis 3 Months Old

Since we have had such nice days, I took my two to the hay field in front of our house and took some Easter pictures.  I love this field when it's covered in these purple flowers. Alexis turned 12 weeks old and is laughing out loud at me. I love hearing that laugh!

My favorite of Madalyn, and totally not scripted.

Here's a few more pictures of Alexis at 3 months old

Here's a look back at Madalyn at 3 months old...she wore the same dress..it's one of my favorites!
