Updates: Smiles, Goodbyes and Progress

Gosh, its been so long since my last update. So much has been going on that I haven't had a chance to post an update. I'll be posting pictures primarily since I currently have my hands full right now. It also seems like most of the bloggers I follow haven't been updating much. I wonder what's up. Blogger lull? I wonder.

Here are some pictures with quick updates of what's been happening. 

I've been taking a lot of selfies with the girls. I love seeing their different facial expressions. I know they aren't always going to want to take pictures with me so right now, I am enjoying my mommy/daughter selfies with them. 

Gosh...whenever I look at these pictures, my heart skips a beat. I can't believe this is the baby I brought home over 3-years ago. She is growing up so fast and is an absolute delight to be around. She is sweet, caring and just so gosh darn cute! 

One evening, JOE said "momma, I want to take a picture". So I said OK. "Smile!" And this was the results. JOE smiling and JAE sticking out her tongue. Yup...that's JAE for ya. 

The last 2 weeks was a bit of a blur. JAE, JOE and I had a cold so it was a bit trying. This particular picture was late one evening after a very long day with the girls. To say I was T-I-R-E-D would be an understatement. But hey, you can count on JAE to help make JOE feel better. I love that they delight in playing with each other.

Incase you are wondering, JAE is full on walking! She started walking a little after she turned 8-months and has been going ever since. She loves to chase her sister around the house! It so cute to see her waddling around. JOE didn't start full on walking until she was about 11-months so JAE is definitely ahead with that.

Last week, we said goodbye to J's grandmother. It was bitter sweet. She lived a full life. The bitter part was having to say goodbye and the sweet part was being around family. 

JOE enjoying a cocktail with her g-dad. Too cute! She was trying a marachino cherry for the first time. She was unsure about it. 

But then bit into it and decided she liked it. 

JAE LOVES to see pictures of herself. When you point a camera at her, as long as she can see herself, she'll smile for you. 

My babies. Love them!!!

So JAE turned 10-months last week. Ummm...she REFUSED to let me take a picture of her. She wanted to hold the camera but I couldn't let her do that because I wouldn't be able to capture a good image. Needless to say, these were the best I could get of her with the sticker on. 

As you can see, JAE loves to reach for the camera.

After the week I had last week, this was definitely needed following a pump session! Speaking of...I need to do an update on my pumping chronicles. I'll do that in the next couple of weeks. 

Now, you're caught up to last week. I'll do more updates tomorrow for PDW. Stay tuned!


  1. Considering you and the children were not feeling too well most of the week, these seem to be quite an update. Thanks again for sharing.

    1. Yup. We are glad to all be doing much better now :-)
