Sweet Girl

This picture is so classic of Lynnie right now.  She is wearing a cape (safety pinned like Hope does it), holding Puppy, and has her hair in a "brain."

When we came home from Cece's MRI, we told the big girls that she had had pictures taken of her brain.  Lynnie decided that a bun on the top of her head was her brain.

I was confused when I went to take the pictures off of my phone, because there were hundreds (and I take the pictures off every day or two, so I usually have 150 or less).  And then I found almost 200 pictures like this:
I love it!

Kylene & Tobyn

Kylene and Tobyn hung out with us for a few hours this afternoon.  They are awesome with the girls!  It was really nice for me since they just took over all entertaining duties, and I was able to make dinner with almost no distractions.

Cece had an MRI today to look at her auditory nerves.  The results showed that everything is normal!

Rubbing Eyes

So cute.  I caught a tired Cece rubbing her eyes.

Gorgeous Day

We took advantage of the gorgeous spring day and played at Wines Park for a couple of hours.  Cece slept off her 2 month shots while the big girls played.

Adventures at Target

We dropped Ellie off to play at Annie's house and headed to Target to pick up a few things.  Cece's car seat takes up the whole inside of the cart, so Lynnie gets to walk.  About halfway through the store, she asked me if she could sit on the bottom, and she promptly climbed in.  She was pretty cute, holding on to the underside of the basket so she wouldn't fall off if we hit any bumps.

We Love Presents

Lynnie loves to pick out Cece's outfits.  She really wanted Cece to wear this blue dress today, but I thought it would be too big (it's a 3-6 month size).  After much persuasion, we tried it on the baby, and it fit great!  Then Lynnie picked out this gorgeous sweater, also a 3-6 month size.

The blue dress was a present from Catherine, and the sweater set was a present from the Baileys.  And Cece was dressed to the nines!

Zebra Girl

Love, love, love that {R} picked the Zebra as Cece's special animal.  Zebra prints are so fun!

My Tuck-It-In Thing

"Lynnie, what is that?"

"My tuck-it-in thing."

"Oh, thanks for explaining."

the many uses of toilet paper

Nice Sister

Ellie was holding Cece this morning, and got her to go to sleep.  That's some serious big sister skills right there!

Photo Shoot

The girls and I were able to pick up the pictures from our photo shoot with Candace today.  She narrowed it down to about her 600 favorites.  I narrowed it down to 187.  So many amazing shots!  This is my favorite of the whole family.

Ready for Church

Headband and boots from {R}.  Outfit from Miss Kristin.

Saturday, March 15, 2014


I love all of the headbands that {R} made for Cece, and I loved putting an outfit on Cece to match this cute blue one.

Grocery Store

The girls and I were on our way home from the library when Greg called.  He was leaving work and wanted to meet us at Macey's.  I turned around and we had fun times at the grocery store.  We ended up with 3 carts.  I had Cece in her car seat in one, Ellie pushed a little one (and put all of the groceries in her cart), and Greg pushed Lynnie in her Princess Carriage.

Today Ellie was the Mommy and Lynnie was the Baby.  Ellie graciously fed Lynnie a bottle while I was feeding Cece a bottle.

Best. Day. Ever!

We loved being able to spend time with two of our birth moms today.  So much fun!

I saw this on Facebook today, and it resonated with me.

No, Don't Take My Picture!

For perhaps the first time, Lynnie didn't want to take a picture!  She covered her mouth so I couldn't see her smile.  I just wanted to show how she likes to sit on the arm of the recliner, leaning against me, while I have Cece in the other arm drinking milk.  Lynnie says that she is on one lap and that Cece is on the other lap.

Uncle Brian

It was monthly dinner at Grandma Camp's again, and Lynnie wanted some milk as an appetizer.  When I asked if I could feed her, she said no.  When Uncle Brian asked if he could feed her, Lynnie nodded her head and went straight to the couch.

iPod Nano

Greg had won an iPod Nano at a convention at some point, and when he found it in a drawer in his desk, he brought it home for Ellie.

She was so excited, and it seemed like it took forever to charge it, plug it in the computer, and put some music on it.

Lynnie loves that {R} and Cece love "cheddahs."

It took me a while to realize she was trying to say "cheetahs" the first time I heard her say it.

Today she put on a cheddah crown so she could match Cece in her cheddah outfit.

Book Club

Cece got to come to Book Club with me, while Ellie and Lynnie played with Hailey at home.  It was fun to see Cece being passed around!  Kelly took this fabulous picture while Ilene was holding her.

Basketball Tournament

Pretty typical scene for us at the basketball tournament today.  None of us are watching Greg and Paul referee, we are too busy playing (sorry, honey!).  Tammy played with Cece the whole time.  Ellie is playing on Tammy's phone.  And Lynnie is eating a hot dog and popcorn.

A Good Day

Cece often has fussy times, and it makes me feel like I'm having a "normal" baby experience.  Ellie and Lynnie were pretty easygoing babies, so it is fun to have it be different this time.  It also really makes me appreciate the good hours.

Today, Cece was pretty happy so I tackled some laundry.  Ellie brought in a big bucket of baby toys, dumped them out on the bed, and entertained Cece for a while.  Until Cece peacefully fell asleep.  On her own.  Just laying on the bed.  I think this is the first time that has happened.

Ellie and Lynnie went in the pantry today and closed the door to watch Curious George.  Ellie said they were in their hideout, and they were hiding from Cece's crying...

Sometimes it's tough when baby sister is fussy!

Sweet Hearts

Ellie wore her Snow White crown and earrings to church today (because I wouldn't let her wear the costume as her dress), and at some point, lost her crown.  Greg took the girls back to the church after dinner to look for it.  And they found it!

They also grabbed a snack from his office.  Lynlee told me she was eating Sweet Hearts.

Ellie made her bed all by herself.

I think it's adorable that she saved 2 of the Christmas cards we received and out them above her bed.  One is from our friend who lived with us for a month a year ago, and the other is the Morrows.  She saved that one because she loves her "brother Bryson who is on a missionary."  She loves to talk to his picture, and often gives it kisses.
