Little Miss Lily

This picture makes me laugh, it is so classic Lily. Lily is extremely easily startled. She has the biggest eyes that just light up like this whenever she hears anything even semi-loud.

Lily is such a sweet little girl. So extremely patient. She hardly ever cries, even when I know she is starving. She just doesn't want to be a bother. Jed and I will always "talk" for her and say things like, "Mommy, if it's not too much trouble, I'm getting a little bit hungry..." When she does cry it is one that will break your heart, and she has a sad face to match.

Lily also loves the night life. She really comes alive and is so animated at about 8:30-11:00 at night. She talks, laughs, kicks, smiles, and is totally ready for a party at the same time every night!! (love those lovable rolls)

She looks so grown up in those baby jeans!

Hannah is having so much more fun with Lily. She even shares her blanky with her!!! Major improvements! It is getting so fun. I love that Lily has such a cute sibling audience to cheer her on when she rolls over, or when it is bedtime everyone has to give her a hug and kiss.

Now I've got to go cuddle my girl...

Birthday Season!

September is the beginning of birthday season around our place. I love it. For Jed's birthday I decided to make a cheesecake, not just any kind. . . A REAL cheesecake. I had never made one before...but I love a good cheesecake and had wanted to make a real one for a long time. I got me a springform pan and everything. I stayed up til midnight making it and it turned out great. Happy Birthday to my best friend/favoritest person in the whole wide world! Hope this birthday was marvelous! ;)

I loved that on my birthday the kids came into our room at 5:45 Am "Daddy, daddy, it's mom's b-day!" Then I hear them "secretively" making a b-day breakfast. Then they came and got me when they were done to surprise me with presents. I kind of had a hand in my gifts this year (I accidentally won my gift on Ebay! for an excellent price though) but Jed still managed to surprise me! It was such a great b-day, great weather, great memories, and a great family to share it with!

We had a picnic up at the cemetery to celebrate Ellie's birthday. Can't believe it's been three years. I love this sweet picture of Madelyn.

I love Hannah. She is hilarious, dramatic, and has such a zest for life. All of this compacted into her tiny little frame. Jed and I always laugh to ourselves as we listen to that little girl, and wonder "Where does she come up with this?" For example: the other night we were driving in the car when the word "treat" was mentioned by her siblings. Well of course she picked up on that and came up with this: "I need treat. . . I so hungry. . . . I need treat--so bad!!" and she says it in the most desperate voice she can muster. She is such a clever and funny girl. Not only that, but she has a knack for mischief. . .

Dispensing of an entire bottle of soap in the bathtub.

She pushed a chair over to climb up to her high chair, to climb up on the counter, to get to my purse, then search through the contents of my purse. As you can see she got what she wanted. If you notice the quality of the pictures on some of these isn't that great, that's because of Hannah. She got a hold of my camera and smudged the lens. :)

She does have a sweet side! Too cute.

I cannot find a safe place for my make up anywhere. I'm certain she can sniff out foundation!

No place is sacred.

I guess she can sniff out mascara too! :)
This is in nowise a full or comprehensive list of the extent of her mischievous adventures.....just a sampling over the last few weeks!
