Growing!

I can barely lug Holly around in her infant car seat anymore.  I’m going to move her into Linlee’s old convertible car seat very soon, especially as she started sitting unassisted today (for bits of time).  That means she will soon be able to sit in a shopping cart and I won’t need the carrier …

This and That

The holiday with Rob’s parents and his brother & sister-in-law went really well.  Linlee had so much fun playing with her grandparents and her Uncle Joe.  Little Holly was very unsure of all the new people in the house at first and started to fuss if anyone got too close.  But by the end of …

Hooray – it’s THAT time of year!

We are thankful…

Rob and I have a long list of reasons to be thankful, but this year, I’d like to mention two in particular.  We are thankful to Rob’s Aunt Ann who was instrumental in bringing our second daughter into our lives.  And we are thankful for beautiful Holly; a dream come true.  I know of many …

Brrrr.

Seattle is still frozen (and school was canceled again), but a sander made its way to our hill today, so Rob’s parents were able to get to our house late this afternoon.  Looks like we should be able to have more than green bean casserole for Thanksgiving dinner too.  Phew! My girls playing together….  Awe. …

Trapped at Home

It continued to snow yesterday and then freeze.  As we live on a big hill, that’s a bad combination.  Our hill is iced over and we are stuck at home.  Rob did not go in to work and Linlee did not go to school (it was closed anyway).  Linlee began pestering Rob first thing in …

Linlee Kate Day

Look at that serious little baby.  It was five years ago today that we held Linlee in our arms for the first time.  Rob and I were over the moon with happiness; Linlee was not.  However, I’m pretty sure if you asked her today what she thinks about her mommy and daddy, it would be …

Baby’s First Snowfall

I realize that the amount of snow here barely counts, but I was excited! I mean honestly, is there a cuter baby in a bear bunting???  I think not.  When Linlee saw these pictures, she said, “I see a polar bear.”  Ha ha!  Linlee was at fellowship with her daddy when I took these shots, …

Two Non-Smiley Pictures

Holly is the easiest baby (for me) to make smile for the camera.  I suddenly realized that the majority of her pictures anymore have the exact same expression; a happy smile.  While I love her smile to no end, it’s also nice to see some other expressions, so here are two: Sucking on her hand; …

It’s getting nippy.

I’ve been carting Holly around (when running errands) with a blanket tucked around her the last month or so, but yesterday it felt cold enough that she needed a jacket as well.  Isn’t she cute?  Rumors of possible snow headed our way over the weekend or Monday/Tuesday.  Whoohoo! Yesterday Linlee came up to me holding …
