Update- sorry it's been a while:)

We had a fantastic time on vacation. We loved having Gramma Wendy with us BUT missed daddy WAY TO MUCH! Next time he's coming with no matter what. The girls had some colds and were a little under the weather but being outside and sunshine and swimming seemed to make it quite a bit better. Yay Gulf Shores- see you next year.

Next BIG news in our life is our big girl Gracie. She has officially been deemed a big girl at home. She threw her "pat" (pacifier) into the rogue river off the bridge downtown, she is potty trained and wears big girl undies all the time now, and she has her big girl bed which she slept in for the first time last night. She is really enjoying being so big and shows us more and more independence daily. Scary since she isn't even 2 1/2 yet. Some days being big gets a little out of hand and she likes to play "mommy" to mommy. That gets nixed right away:) We are so proud of what a transition she has made in the last two weeks. What a star!

Livvy is the HAPPIEST baby in the world. She has some lungs and can let you know when she's not but there is usually a darn good reason and then she's smiling again minutes later. She LOVES to have her picture taken. Her smile is super contagious too, so beware if you are around her. You WILL be smiling too. She is so big now. Cruising around all over the house. Standing up everywhere, eating "real" food all the time. She is growing up way too fast. We are truly enjoying her to the fullest. What a spunky, tough little girl she is. And note the cute little bow in her hair. It is just long enough for a sprout.

Our beautiful girls are the light of our life. We love to be with them and spend time together as a family. What a blessed life we lead.
