My mom left today, so we are officially on our own! I can't even begin to describe how awesome it's been having her here for almost 3 weeks!!!! John David and I both cried when she left! I think John David is well aware that he's about to have zero clean clothes, a sink full of dishes, and fast food for dinner. :) My Dad came up last night and treated us to SUCH a fun, delicious meal at Pesto Cafe while precious Lacey Harris stayed with the girls. It was so incredibly nice to have a night out with just John David and my parents! Here are LOTS of pictures of this past week. As you can see, I can't put my camera down. These sweet little faces just melt my heart!!
(John David was holding up this picture of Lyla as a newborn to compare with Lowen. Definitely similar!!)
(a rare moment when Cookie convinced Lyla to do a ponytail...LOVE this little profile! too bad it only lasted a few minutes!)
Cookie "riding the horsey" with her girls
ha! Poor Lowen...such a trooper already
Constantly doing her "gymnastics tricks" :)
Lots of rain all day today, but Lyla is so used to playing outside that she convinced us to let her go jump in the puddles. She wanted to wear her jacket and boots, but NO pants of course! She would have stayed out there all day long if we'd let her!
Love these sweet profiles, too...and Lyla's hand on Daddy's arm.
And while Lowen peacefully sleeps all day long, our little free-spirit hippie child keeps us entertained...
So, here's to hoping we survive life with 2 kids without the help of Super Cookie!!! All prayers appreciated please! :)
