Completly Forgot....

My baby girl turned two months old.

Dear Sweet Girl, You are starting to show us your little personality and Mommy and Daddy love it. You love to smile and talk to us. You are a big talker, boy we can't wait for those teenage years:) You love it when I kiss your huge cheeks, I get the biggest smiles out of you. You are such a happy little girl. You love watching your big brother, he can keep you entertained for about an hour.

Here are some of the things that you have accomplished this month.

  1. You give us huge smiles!! This is one of my favorite things that you do.
  2. You love to talk to us. This is my other favorite thing.
  3. You still sleep all the time. You only like to be awake for about an hour at a time. You are sleeping through the night now. You usually go from 7pm to about 3am and then back down until 8 or 9 am. You have gone until 6 am a couple times.
  4. You can hold your head up and a 45 degree angle.
  5. You can bat at hanging toys and you even grab on to them sometimes.
I can't wait to see what the future brings us with you. You really are a joy to be around and Mommy and Daddy love you so much.

Christmas Morning

Tyler had a blast opening presents this year. It was so much fun to watch him get excited over every toy. We made the mistake of showing him the kitchen first. All he wanted to do was play with it. Every two presents he would run back in the playroom saying "play kitchen".

Christmas Play

Tyler's school had their Christmas Play today. The kindergarten kids performed the play and the rest of the kids sang a couple songs at the end. For some reason his school thought it would be a good idea to have the 2 year olds sing the Three Kings song. I have no idea why they didn't pick a more kid friendly song for them. Tyler never learned the song or he wasn't interested in singing it. Either way he just stood there.

Here is Tyler watching the play.

Here is Tyler standing there while the other kids sang. No one from his class was really singing, it was mostly the older kids.

Grandpa H Visits

Grandpa H came out to visit us. I think he had a great time holding his new grand daughter. She sure did love sleeping on him. Tyler had a blast reading books with Grandpa.

Not a Newborn Anymore

Ali has officially lost the newborn look:( I can't believe it. I was looking at her today and realized my munchkin is no longer a newborn. She sure makes a pretty little baby though.

Say Cheese!!

Gingerbread House

Tyler made his first Gingerbread Houses at school today. He actually got to make two. They usually repeat activities on Wed and Thurs, most kids got Mon and Wed or Tues and Thurs. Since he goes Wed and Thurs, he gets to do some things twice. I asked his teacher how much of this he actually made and she said well he enjoyed eating it. So I'm guessing he snacked alot but had a lot of help building it:)

Tyler and Avery

Tyler did a great job sharing his toys with Avery this time. I think we only had one or two little fights between the two of them. Here are some pictures of them drawing together.

The Bounce House with Avery

To burn off a little energy we took Avery and Tyler up to a local bounce house place. They had a blast. Tyler had to show Avery how to go down the big slide, she was a bit scared at first. Once she got the hang of it they were both unstoppable.

Here is video of Tyler and Avery going down the slide.
