I know we have been Missing in Action lately but as evidenced by this picture we have been busy with Maggie and her new fashion career. Things are going well for her too, short skirts work great in this Wisconsin weather. The headbands are a real stylish added touch.
Life here has been crazy with the girls and work. We got Maggie into the Preschool we wanted so she will start in September going Mon, Wed, and Fri mornings. We are very excited and I’m sure she will love it. Layla is growing so fast, I can’t believe she will be a year old at the end of the month. What a crazy year it has been since her birth. She has finally decided to show us that she can crawl, although she does not do it at our house. Must be those hard wood floors, because anywhere with carpet she has no problem. She is pulling up and standing, not too much walking yet but she tries. FOOD!!! Layla gets to eat real food and will eat anything and everything, and lots of it! She still has only 2 teeth but that does not hold her back. She still has that incredible smile and is such a happy baby!!
Maggie has had enough of winter, she comes out of her room everyday in shorts and a t-shirt and is just waiting for me to say she can go outside in it. And I should mention she has no shorts that fit her, so most of what I’m calling shorts are really Layla’s pants that are just to short on Maggie. She is in a phase where she will change her clothes many times a day, she goes in for nap in one outfit and comes out with something completely different (like the one in the picture). Usually I’m too busy laughing at her to tell her to change back needless to say I feel like I’m doing a lot more of their laundry these days. Maggie is still so much fun, she love her babies and princesses, and of course she loves to dance (as long as she has a dress on).
Well I guess that catches everyone up for now- except for Justin and I which I’m sure nobody really cares about. We are both extremely busy with work, I’m back coaching with him a couple of times of week so it will take some getting used to. We have hired a wonderful nanny Yumi, both the girls adore her and she not only keeps them busy and happy she helps me with the little chores around the house. There is nothing better than coming home from work to happy children and a clean house.
Enjoy the few pictures and I promise to add more soon!
Maggie has a style of her own and she wears it well. I will have to keep an eye out for some cute headbands. Layla is getting so big. I am in shock that is has been a year but once again I am on spring break and that is when Layla was born. My time goes by so fast. Love you guys
