Crazy Ella

I took Ella to see Toy Story 3-D and we came home with the glasses. This is her trying to watch Beauty and the Beast (not in 3-D) with her glasses. Please note that they are upside down.
Aaron went on a business trip last week and he got home after Ella went to bed. He wanted to check on her and see her for a few seconds and this is what we walked in on. She is just sprawled out everywhere. She plays hard and she sleeps hard.
Ella has gotten into the habit of raiding my kitchen drawers. The garlic press is now one of her new favorite toys. She like to talk on it. The video below is of her doing just that.

The many hairstyles of Ty Boyce


I have a lot of fun trying out new hairstyles with Ty. He just has so much hair. It has a little bit of a curl to it so it makes it look crazy sometimes!!

Things to smile about...



One of the first things to smile about is we finished the tiling in our Kitchen! When my wonderful mother-in-law come into town after Ty was born, we started, and then I finished it after she left. We have few tiles to cut to go around the outlets, but other than that everything is done. And for never tiling before, I think it looks pretty good. Hopefully this is the last thing we decide to do to our kitchen while we are living here.

This isn't really something to smile about, but what else can you do but laugh. On Saturday, when Aaron and I were cleaning the house so we could party the rest of the day, our beautiful daughter was trying to make herself even more beautiful by putting on my mascara. Here are the results:

She even managed to get it on her eyelashes!
And one more thing to smile about is.. Ty started smiling in response to things. It has been really fun. He loves listening to people talk to him and he love watching his sister. He is especially smiley after he eats. :-)

Our babies

Our little guy just gets bigger and bigger everyday, It's just so different having a boy. Ella was so petite and just all girl, and Ty is all boy. And a big mama's boy at that. He loves to eat and really doesn't let anyone else hold him but me. Hopefully he will grow out it. I love that Ella loves on everybody. For the most part he is a pretty good baby. He doesn't really like taking naps and we have been struggling with that. But it is getting better the more we get on a schedule. It amazes me to think that he is only 5 weeks old. It feels like he has been apart of the family for much longer that that.

Ella sat down for lunch the other day and grabbed a magazine to read. I thought it was really cute. She is doing really well with her little brother. She tells us she loves him and that Ty is cute. She is not too happy with the attention that mommy shows Ty will feeding him all the time. So she follows me around the house everywhere. She is getting so big and she has a big attitude to go with it. She is her mother's daughter. Probably just getting a little taste of my own medicine, right?
