More softball

Here's the latest shots from Madison's fall softball games.  Layla wasn't happy and (as you can see from the last few shots) Madison didn't hit so well this game.

My, oh my, how time does fly!  3 months old!  That really seems unreal to me!  3 months, WOW!

Layla has recently discovered her own reflection in one of her toys.  She's quite entertaining when she looks in it.  She will lay there for a long time and have a conversation with her self.  I can only image the conversations...."My, you're a good lookin' girl.  Been around here long?  Oh, me too!  Did you hear that?  That's my puppy dog barking, probably a cat in the front yard.  Oh, no, it's just my sissy getting home from school."

She can also hold her head up really well when you hold her.  Not much neck support is needed now-a-days...just when we get really sleepy.  Speaking of sleep.  We haven't been going down as easily as the prior months.  She's starting to fight it and boy does she put up a fight!!!

10 weeks

We made it to the double digits!  Success!  I thought, since it's the beginning of football season that it was appropriate to use some Varsity-type lettering on Layla's onesie this week. 

We had a pretty big milestone this week.  We no long need the head support, neck stabilizer thingy in the car seat.  I took it out a couple days ago and it actually made me sad.  I mean, as I was physically taking it out, a sadness came over me.  It was a huge slap in the face that she was getting bigger right in front of my eyes!  It was at that very moment that I realized how much I really, really, really love being able to work from home.  Not only with spending time with Layla during the day, but being able to have more one on one time with Madison.  I've definitely been trying to savor the moments more lately!

YouTube Star in the Making

That's right, we've created a YouTube channel.  The video quality on this blog is awful and I figured it would be nice to have all the videos in one spot for the fam to view. I don't know if we'll ever capture a video that will go viral and make us lots of moohla.  (Well, I guess if we do Layla will get a nice cushion for her college fund.)   But it's worth the try.  

There's not a whole lot on there now, but as she gets more active, I'm sure the videos will get more entertaining.  ENJOY!!!

9 weeks

Is it just me or does Layla keep changing?  I know babies are suppose to change and grow but her facial features keep changing big time!  It really amazes me the differences, week-to-week, there are!

Anywho....this week (well the past 2 days) we've been adjusting back to our every day routine.  This past weekend Layla had an overload of hug and kisses and being passed around so the past few days at home have consisted of a little more cuddling from momma than usual.  (It's okay, I don't mind!)

WOW! September is here!

It's September 1st and already our monthly calendar is pretty much full.  Knowing me, I'll probably squeeze in a few more activities in.  Call me crazy. 

I was looking over my calendar and did a literal LOL.  There's really no describing it other than posting a photo.  So, here ya go....our September (thus far).
