We're doing well as we prepare to close the first month of 2010! I've had fun adapting to two kids--it was a wild ride with tears (and not just the kids :) and moments of feeling overwhelmed for a few weeks, but we're doing well now. It helped to just jump in and even helped when Clinton was in CA and camping for a week. That forced me to adjust and also helped Daniel know the limits as well.
We have many moments I can't resist pulling out the camera. Not all are perfect shots, but they spark a memory. Enjoy our updates...
Daniel was in a giddy mood. He is so expressive and when he smiles his "happy face" smile, you can see all of his dimples. He is a great older brother and a joy to have in our family. We are blessed to have such a loving and sensitive spirit.
Riley discovered her hands! She holds them up over her head and stares at them (see other blog post), but this time got to look down at them--see next picture for her reaction...(by the way, she is a champ at holding up her head!)
Oh, and the drool begins! If she's like Daniel, it won't stop for another 18 months, at least.
I love this expression on Riley. So peaceful and calm, but clearly happy. She looks darling in one of my favorite outfits on her (see, I do put her in PINK!) and, her blanket coordinates. How spunky is that! Of course, she has now outgrown this and her other 3 months outfits even though she will be 3 months in a week. I have just pulled out the next set of clothes and she is sporting 6-9 months. What a gal!
You'll notice that these star-studded frames don't have side bars (thanks to Daniel); however, he learned to balance them on his nose. you can tell he is concentrating by his mouth expression. What a learner. He's talking a lot now and has even repeated all the words of a prayer and scriptures. Our little boy is growing up!
