Lilia: Two Years Old (24 months)!

You are two years old today. It seems like yesterday when we brought you home. I had the privilege of being there when you were born. Your birth was amazing. You had to see what was going on. So many people were there to celebrate your birth and to love you. We are so blessed to be your parents. We love you so much. You keep amazing us everyday! You are so curious and learn so quickly.

Hair Removal

My Christmas stocking had this hair removal kit. It does not have the sand paper on it right now. Lilia saw me use it on my legs after Christmas. She got into it soon after and I took the sand paper off so she would not hurt herself. She found it again today! I can not believe she remembers to use it on her legs. She pulled her own pant legs up herself to rub her legs. She is so funny and smart.

Go BYU Basketball!

We are watching BYU play San Diego. Go Cougars! I watched college basketball when I was younger. Asher is playing with Lilia and watching the game. Elayna is relaxing in her BYU hat!

Looking at Ourselves in the Mirror

Lilia let me curl her hair after I did my hair! She did not like the "hot" but I did not get close to her head. I love my flat iron! Now if I could get my hair to look as good as Lilia's!

Lilia's new words...

Jump (she pronounced the "p" at the end)
Eyes (Elayna)
Nose (Elayna)
Hole (Daddy's belly button)
Juice please
Clap (jumping jacks)
Chip (chiropractor's office, saw chips pictured on back of magazine)
Helicopter (Things that Go book)
Eww (booger from Elayna)

So many more that I forget to write down!

Sleeping Girls!

Lilia had to have the pacifier after lunch and then fell asleep with it. The question is should I remove pacifier and risk waking her up? Hmm, I will in a few more minutes. She did not wake up!
Elayna is asleep as well with her arms up. I used a swaddler a friend got for me and Elayna slept 7 hours last night!
Funny things this morning:
1. I got a green booger out of Elayna's nose and asked Lilia to throw it away. She carefully took the q-tip and said, "Eww" and threw it away!
2. A friend gave Lilia some purses a while ago. Lilia is interested in them now. I have collected race cars from Goodwill and cleaned them up. Lilia loves playing with them. She has two air planes and flies them around. Where does she keep them all? In her pink leather purse that has an "L" on the outside!
3. Daddy flew air planes with Lilia today during his lunch break. They were flying everywhere!
4. Lilia has insisted she wear her "blue" panties the last couple of days. She only lasts an hour half before they are wet. We take bathroom breaks every 15 minutes!

Quiet Books and other Crafts

I found these quiet books on one of my favorite blogs. I downloaded them all! I could not resist. :) I sent two of them to be printed and it cost me $6. I think Lilia will like them. I am going to mount them on card stock, laminate them at parent teacher store for $1 foot and then bind them on one side!


I found this chalk board purse and I want to try making one! She even tells you how to make your own chalk board paint! Goodwill has board books for cheap.


I seem to get behind on the fun holidays... So this count down frame may be what I need to make in the future! I am going to keep a look out for a frame at Goodwill. Also when the girls start writing numbers they can practice .

When I make them I will post pictures!

Smiles from Elayna

Elayna has been smiling all day. Her eyes are usually open but the flash gets them closed. She is so cute when she smiles ear to ear!

Naps on Sunday Afternoon

We are all having naps after church. We are waiting for Daddy to finish some church work. We love Daddy!
Lilia falls asleep before we get home from church and I carry her to my bed to sleep. I feed Lilia lots of snacks during church because she does not get to eat lunch. Church is from 11 am to 2 pm. She is loving nursery (18 months-3 yrs). The nursery sisters are so good to her. She loves singing time and tells me all about the songs. We put her picture she colors on the fridge.
Elayna was up off and on during church. She is sleeping really well on me (see picture)!
The lesson in Relief Society (womens organization) was on Service.
It is nice to be reminded to let others serve you but that I can serve others as well. I don't have to do something big and grand but can do small things for others. I love the feeling I receive when I serve others and my family.

Elayna One Month (5 weeks)

We were all sick and I did not take Elayna's picture. Here they are! We kept a close hand on her so she would not slide off the chair.
She weighs around 9 lbs 3 oz. She is drinking 4 oz of formula. Loves to sleep and sucks on her pacifier. She loves to smile and look around. She can sleep while tv is on and while I vacuum. She is a great baby. She sleeps about 5 hours at night. We love you Elayna!

Happy Valentines Day!

This picture was taken at the doctors office. Lilia would not smile! Lilia is well but Elayna has a cough. We are hoping she is almost done with her cold. She is eating really well and sleeping well. Yeah! Elayna was 9 lbs and 4 oz with diaper on!

Valentine Surprises!

Louise and Bill brought over some Valentine surprises for Lilia (Doodle Bug) and Elayna. Lilia loves her apples and her cute outfit. Elayna will be cute in her onesies and outfits. Thanks for all the pink and the surprise for Valentines Day!

Surprise Package

Elayna got a surprise package from my Aunt Ann. She made two blankets and matching bibs to match and they are reversible. They are so beautiful! We love them!

Blue Ice Pop

Lilia loves the color blue. Her cousin loves the color blue and since he has left she insist that everything be blue. It is very cute to see her ask for blue. Hence the blue ice pop.

Daddy and Elayna

We are waiting at the doctors office and Daddy is playing with Elayna. We are all sick but looks like we will be getting better soon! Elayna is the best patient and has good healthy genes!

The Thinker....Elayna

I love how her thumb is sticking out. She is 8 lbs and 15 oz today.

Valentine Stickers

We had so much fun doing this craft! Here are a few pictures. Lilia did not last very long. She loves licking them!

The Thinker...Asleep

Lilia is getting some good rest. She is almost well. She sleeps in the cutest positions. Her favorite position is her bottom in the air with her legs tucked under her.

French Braid: Lilia

Lilia held still for me to french braid her hair. I have not braided hair in a long time. I think she looks so cute! Can't wait to braid her hair again.

Two Clean Girls!

Lilia and Elayna had baths tonight. Lilia loves the water and Elayna is not sure if she likes baths. Lilia was a great helper.

Mommy and Lilia Play Time!

Lilia has been sick. Today she is feeling a lot better! We are playing while Elayna naps. We built towers, put together puzzles, and all kinds of fun.
