Madison Update

Sweet Girl!

All ready to go to gymnastics!

I love my new swing set!!

Madison is 2 years, 10 months! I can't believe she will be 3 in two months. She is such a little firecracker! She's been having a fun summer. Her favorite things to do lately...sing and dance on her new stage in her room, swing on her swing set and swim. She is SO over soccer...I have to fight with her to go every week. It is too hot to be running around in the sun! I have been making her go but after today, we are done going! We are all over soccer! At least we tried...sorry Chris, your little girl is not going to be a sports girl! She also started gymnastics once a week and LOVES it! Her favorite activity there is the foam pit. Its a huge padded pit full of soft pieces of foam. The kids just get to run and dive into it. Madi has no fear and was the first kid to take a dive! Madi is such great big sister! She is always looking out for Elly and trying to make her laugh....its so cute!

Ellyana, 3 and 4 month post

Ellyana is 4 months old! WOW! 4 months went by so fast. Elly is the sweetest baby. She is so easy going and happy. We are enjoying her so much. Things she is doing now: Rolling over, giggling, putting weight on her legs (she's actually been doing this since birth), holding her head up perfectly, sitting in the jumperoo and sleeping 7-8 hours (sometimes). We love her sooo much and can't believe we have only had her in our lives for 4 months. I can't even remember my life without her!

Ellyana, 1 month & 2 month post

Elly @ 1 month

Weight: 9 lbs 11 oz

Height: 22 inches

Clothes: Newborn and 0-3 mths

Elly @ 2 months

Weight: 11 lbs 11 oz

Height: 23 3/4 inches

Clothes: 3 months, some 3-6 pants fit

My little sweetie is over 2 months old! I have been busy with 2 silly girls! I am back to work and hating it! Elly is not doing good with the bottle so we are trying different bottles to try and find one she likes. I just bought the Tommee Tippie which is shaped just like momma so we will see! On Monday she went from 5 am to 2 pm only eating about 2 ounces in between! I had to come home at lunch to nurse her. She just loves her momma!! Besides the bottle issue she is doing great...eating, sleeping, pooping and smiling...everything she is supposed to do! She doing a 6-7 hour stretch without eating at night so I have been getting plenty of sleep. She is also very tall, almost 2 feet long!

Big sister, Madison is as sweet as ever! She is so much fun! We can have full on conversations with her now. She is so smart! She is in soccer this summer and she loves it! Chris takes her for an hour a week and they play together...its so sweet! Chris is on cloud 9 because he plays soccer and LOVES that Madi enjoys it. I was the only mom that was obsessing about how cute they looked in their uniforms instead of how good they play soccer! She also starts gymnastics in a few weeks...I can't wait for that!

Now that we have a yard and now that it's FINALLY nice out we plan on spending a lot of time outside. We ordered a swing set and it should be here on Thursday! Our backyard is fenced in so I am excited to just let Madi run run run! Too bad my allergies are horrible right now so I will be sneezing non-stop. I am nursing so I can't take anything, ugh!

Madison's first Goal!

Mothers Day

My Mom snuggling my babies!

My mother-in-law snuggling (can you tell my girls love to snuggle!)

My beautiful babies and I

I am so blessed! I have the most wonderful Mother! Her life revolves around her kids and her grandkids. She helps me out everyday...I don't know how I would parent without her (spoiled, I know!). She is my best friend and I love her so much! I also got lucky and have a wonderful Mother-in-law! Sandy is such a great Grandma! She is so much fun and I love her dearly! I also have an amazing Grandma and Nana!

I have the most amazing kids (still weird to say kidS!) I am the lucky one! I love Madison because she made me a mother and I love Ellyana because she made me a better mother. Being a Mom has given my life purpose. I love my girls more than anything in the world!

Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful Mothers out there!
