Little Miss..

Put on lip gloss the ENTIRE way to Wichita Falls! Yes, thats a whole 6 1/2 hours. All it took was her purse, BOY sun glasses (which I have NO idea where they came from) and lip gloss to entertain her the entire time! We ofcourse had a movie playing for her and I also packed some books for her to look at. And at on point she asked me to read a book to her. So I said sure.... I read, and read, and read... then she interupts and says, "could you pwease be quite, I cant hear nemo!"

Has it really been 6 months already?..

(See her teeth...)

My little, bitty, baby is already 6 months old. :(

Heres what Ragie can do:

She holds her own bottle- the entire time.

Grabs everything!

Says Dada, Mama, and ba-ba.

Makes the 'Motor boat' sounds

Constantly talks!

Rolls from her belly to her back, then back.

Scoots all over the floor!

AND she has 2 teeth!

Next thing ya know Raigen will be 1, and Ill be getting baby fever again!

Uh oh! :)


Not too bad for a "Hey, Im getting married in a month" wedding...

So, my little sister decided to get married, kind of a spur of the moment thing since they had just planned on going to the JP. Her new husband is in the Air Force so we travled ALL the way to Wichita Falls where he is stationed and they got married at a beautiful waterfall there. My mom made the cake and I decorated it with some left over flowers from her bouquet. I also did her hair and all the flowers. She wanted sort of a "tropical" themed wedding. So I used brightly colored flowers and over all I think it turned out really pretty.
Congrats Kem!

Waking up in the morning to Raigen's smiles and coos is one of the many highlights of my day. However, this morning I woke up to the sound of her stuttering her 1st words!
"d,d,d, dada....."
And why it had to be Dada, I have no idea, I mean I nursed the kid for goodness sake!
Oh, well.
I mean, it IS gong to be Father's Day Sunday so I guess it makes sense.

Yesterday was a day of firsts....

It was the 1st time Rilyn has ever fell asleep in her big girl bed in her room. After making me read her what felt like 100 books! (Which is my favorite part of the day, btw) I looked over and she was out! So, I turned her light off, turned her closet light on, and cleaned out a clear path to her door for when she woke up to come into our room. I went into the living room and Josh was watching TV and Raigen was asleep in her bassinet. Man, I dont think this has ever happened. Both girls, asleep, at 9:30... WOW! So we went to bed.
Josh: "You know shes going to wake up screaming and run in here in the middle of the night."
Me: "I know, I left her closet light on for when she does."
2 Minutes later, Josh was asleep and I was carrying Rilyn into our room.
I know... I know...
But sssh! Josh thinks she woke up in the middle of the night and came in there by herself! :)
And yesterday was also the 1st time Raigen sat up by herself! Luckily we have carpet because she occasionally rolls over like a bowling ball in slow motion! lol
Gosh, next thing you know she'll be crawling!

I ♥ my 2 year old.

I love the sound of Rilyns plastic high heals on the kitchen floor.
Even when Raigen;s sleeping and its so freakin loud that it wakes her up!lol I love it.
I love how Rilyn talks like a real 'big girl'.
Like how she likes to pretend that shes the mom and I'm the daughter.
Or how she fills her grocery cart up full of stuff and comes in the living room to dump it out. Then asks me to clean up or Santa wont bring me any toys.
And how she loves to play store and tells me she 'haves 2 debit cards'.
Like how she ALWAYS has to carry a purse.
And seriously it has lip gloss, 2 cell phones, keys, and numerous 'debit cards'.
And none of it ever gets lost.
And she always has to carry a diaper bag for any one of her million babies.
And what amazes me is she names them all. And remembers their names.
I love to hear her sing her bath time song... "Scruba dub dub in tha tub..."
I love how she rhymes EVERYTHING, like how she calls me 'Mommy-Jommy-Wommy' and Josh 'Daddy-Waddy'.
I love when she names all of her cousins, she includes Aunt Sarah-bugs DOG Toby. :)
I just love this kid.

Rilyn had her 1st haircut!

In April! :) And I forgot to post it! And I don't want to hear any crap... its hard to keep up with 2! :)
My BF Amanda cut her shag/mullet into a cute little bob! No more crazy hair! YAY! :)
Look at my little princess getting her 1st haircut!!

Adorable ♥

Raigen's 1st swim

Well, we decided to let Raigie take her 1st swim in the pool. She LOVES baths, so that means she'd love to swim, right?...Nope. She screamed and screamed.... I guess she doesn't like cold water??.. Our pool doesn't really get much sun so its not exactly her baths. lol The only part of this swimming she really enjoyed was when we put her in the boat with Rilyn. Then she was fine. :)
