Mason & Lily ~ 4 months

People often ask me who Lily looks like. I think Lily has more Danny and Mason has more April... But overall I think that Mason and Lily look ALOT alike!

Guess who is who?

Lily 5 months

My sweet little Lily is 5 months old (yesterday)

* she loves to smile and laugh, she especially loves it when you hold her and give her undivided attention :)
*she loves to watch Ralph play, and thinks it is funny when he jumps up to get a toy
*she can offically sit up on her own for 5-10 mins as long as she doesn't get distracted by her brother or Ralph off to the side


*she droooools like crazy and loves to be chewing on things.
*she will grab anything I am holding... phones, food etc
* she loves to play in her exersaucer
* she will walk a little bit if I hold her hands

*she is a great sleeper at night, usually 8-10 hours
*naps are a different story, lately I only get 40 min naps :(
* she doesn't like to be rocked to sleep, she wants to be in her bed with a binki
* she loves to take baths with Mason
* she loves to be naked and grab/eat her toes :)

Love you baby girl!

Speaking of Raquel...

I love her! She is my favorite older younger sister :) I planned on giving a shout out to each sibling on their birthday this year... I did one for Brady in January, but I forgot to do Raquel's in June (in my defense I had a 1 week old baby) But better late than never!!!

I have loved Raquel since the first day I met her...

I love to give her hugs...

and run around...

and of course tea parties (check out her AWESOME mullet, be jealous!)

and take baths together

and she makes funny faces, haha

speaking of funny faces, whenever we take family/group type pictures and say "ok now a funny one" Raquel is always the one that does not participate... she always looks cute and makes the rest of us look special!

Raquel thank you for being such a wonderful sister. I love your:
spirit
long hair and green eyes
your laid back personality
your work ethic
your love of books
weird quirks (like being even!)
optimism
blonde moments!

Thanks for being such a wonderful sister, Love you!

xoxoxo

Raquel's visit

My sister Raquel came to visit last month... it was sooooooo nice having her here! She loved snuggling with her babies and was so nice to let me take naps :)




Isn't Lily's face amazing in this one!



Thank you Raquel for coming to visit! I can't wait for you to come back :)

Halloween cont...

Here are some pictures from Halloween day. This was Mason's first year really trick or treating... last year we went to a mall which was no bueno... anyway 10 seconds after we stepped outside it started raining, again no bueno! Mason and his friend Gabe didn't seem to mind though. At first Mason was really shy and didn't want anything in his pumpkin, but then he realized he was getting CANDY and then he participated. So cute! If you look close you can see the rain!


Gabe and Mason showing us his candy

Later on after dinner we finally decided to carve our pumpkin (thanks Ashley!)

Mason liked pushing in the shapes


He especially loved having the candle inside! He started blowing on it and when the candle blew out he said, "ok I want a bite!" I guess he remember from his birthday, haha

I love Lily's face! This is how my kids always are, Mason excited about something and Lily excited that Mason is close :)


Happy Halloween!
