I have found a secret to waking Hannah up in the mornings. All you have to do is put a little Sadie in the bed beside her! Not only does she wake up quickly, she wakes up happy and cuddly! Not sure Sadie is really excited about it....but she will take one for the team! This has worked more than one time! This is a good thing to know on preschool mornings when we need to move quickly and in a good mood!! Here are some pictures from the 1st successful Sadie wake up!! This must have been a wake-up from a nap because both girls are already dressed!
Cute of Hannah....
Priceless! This is by FAR the best picture of Hannah holding Sadie! So beautiful!
Daddy what is this stuff Mommy is giving me?

In my last post I mentioned Hannah going to spend the night with Aunt Liz and Uncle Michael. I meant to put this in there but got distracted :)! Jake and I have lived in San Antonio for 7ish years now and love it. We have never had family near by, but didn't really mind since the drive was just 4 hours to family! Now with little ones, I can definitely see the benefit of living near family. Just Hannah spending the night with the Cauley's was refreshing and wonderful! Those of you who have family around.......be thankful. You are very blessed! Show your gratitude. I am a little jealous today of those of you who can go out and NOT have to pay a babysitter each time! But that does not mean we are moving to Abilene! Just wanted to let you know that those of you with family who are happy to help you with your children, you are blessed.
Sorry there are no pictures this time. We don't look our best at 5:30 in the morning! And pictures of wet sheets are not that exciting.
Have a terrific Tuesday!

We have also had some unusually late (night owls) around here with her teeth coming in! The other night was 3 am! Poor girl....we are praying that those teeth come through quickly so she can get back to her smiley, sleepy, and non-drooly self!
As for an update on Hannah.....she now sleeps through the night with panties and not a diaper! :) I am completely amazed how fast this child potty trained! She practically dragged Jacob and I through it! She was still sleeping in a diaper until Wednesday night. We left the girls with her babysitter. The next morning she woke up and I went to take the diaper off and it was not there! She was dry and looked at me like "what's the big deal mom?" (She doesn't use a diaper during naps anymore so I guess this step was not a big deal to her) So the next night we have the babysitter again and the same thing happens. She wakes up dry again. Seems pretty silly to go backwards so we just keep it going! Way to go Hannah!! Such a big girl!
A big thank you to Aunt Liz, Uncle Michael, Kiley, Bailey, and Kason for having Hannah over for a sleep over Friday night! Jacob just started a new job in the last 2 weeks that have been crazy hours! This will change...he is just learning and getting into his groove :) He also works Saturday, so I have been running the show day and night!! Big change from this summer when he was home at least a little bit every day!! So it was greatly appreciated for Hannah to have a night away! The only thing that was not appreciated was the cell phone with make-up in it!! We have blue eye shadow everywhere!! She says it HAS to go on her lips....reminds me of the 80's! We are coming up with a plan to hide it....tonight! Thanks again!

Ths is one of Hannah's 1st holdings of Sadie. A scary experience for everyone but Hannah! :)

Let's start with Wednesday....
After church, the girls and I walk into the house. I put Sadie's car seat (with her in it) on the coffee table and go to change clothes. About 1 minute later Hannah starts screaming and then I hear Sadie screaming too.... Hannah had pulled Sadie off the table and she had flipped onto the floor!!! Thank God that the "roll bar" :) was up and Sadie was still strapped in. It mostly just scared them. So I put Sadie on one leg and Hannah on the other and let them cry for a minute until they realized their world was just fine!! When did Hannah get to be so strong??
Then on Thursday....
Hannah did not want to leave preschool yet again! Jacob had to hold her down to get into the car seat! We are so excited that she likes her preschool........but seriously, a temper tantrum every time we pick her up??? By the way, she is still crying when she gets home and goes straight down for her nap! Everyone needed it! :)
After her nap, Hannah kept saying that she had a boobie and she wanted me to tiss it (kiss it). She was holding out her arm though....?? Then I figured it out....she had a boo boo. She knew how to say boo boo when she was 1. Why is she calling it a boobie now?? Pretty funny, but a little weird in public places!
Friday is when things get pretty interesting!
My friend Katie and her daughter Jayden (14 mo) come over to play for a couple of hours. When they were leaving I laid Sadie down on her back in the living room and walked out with Hannah to say goodbye. Katie put Jayden in her car seat & I closed the passenger door to keep Hannah's little hands out of all the goodies she was finding. I saw that Hannah had a book of Jayden's so I tried to open the door and put it in, but it was locked!! Jayden was locked in with the keys! Thank goodness it was only 70 degrees! I went in to go find a hangar and try to unlock the door. When I walked inside....Sadie was on her belly!! Her first roll over and I missed it. Not only did I miss it, I had to hurry and get Jayden out of the locked car! The hangar did work, and we were able to open the door in 5 minutes or less! PTL. Later that night when Daddy was home we put Sadie down to she if she would roll again and YES she did! I missed her 1st one, but got her 2nd, 3rd, and 4th on camera and video! See pictures below!
One more cute story about Hannah....
On their way home from the store, Hannah asked Daddy if she could drive home? Seriously, she is only 2! :)
While I was putting this blog together, my wonderful husband bathed, lotioned, dressed AND put Sadie down for the night! Wow! Such a treat!
Have a terrific Tuesday!

Hello friends! We have had such an eventful week around here that it finally convinced me to start this blog. Our girls are growing so fast and we want to
share the memories and milestones with you guys! I will be posting a lot of pictures, so you can see them as they grow for those of you (grandparents & friends) that do not live near us! Hope you enjoy! Here are some photos of the last couple weeks. ...
Finally a huge grin caught by the camera!! She smiles ALL the time but the flash sometimes causes her to stop smiling before the photo is taken! Not this time!
Jalen making it rain....so fun...."Look (wook) Mommy it's raining!!" over and over and over
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
