Tiny Pink Shoes

How fun are tiny baby shoes? Lacy was born with such large feet, unfortunately, just like her momma, she was unable to wear most of the adorable baby shoes the first few months. However, Miss Ashley has the TINIEST feet! So, this time around all those cute tiny shoes are getting a lot of use. These photos were taken back on August 21st when Ashley was 10 weeks. She will be 16 weeks on Monday and can still easily wear these shoes, along with so many more. SO FUN! I wanted some photos of them and of course big sis wanted to join her sissy:)

Prima Ballerina from tofslie on Vimeo.

On September 15, 2009, just 3 years old, Lacy began her first ballet class! This little one has been doing her ballet moves for over 1/2 a year now. She, all on her own, gravitated to ballet and that still astonishes me. What massive anticipation and excitement led up to her first day. On the first day the parents were allowed to stay for 2 very quick songs and I will never forget those quick 5 minutes. Her teacher just seems wonderful! Lacy did great and was fine with mommy leaving(we talked about it prior) and it was definitely a big milestone moment, I am sure we BOTH will remember. So, being a big moment, this video is a little on the longer side. Now to wait for her big performances! Yes, I will bring my kleenex for sure.

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

Let's Go Fly A Kite from tofslie on Vimeo.

At our Lincoln City beach trip with Grandma and Grandpa, Lacy got to fly a kite they bought for her. And actually they bought it last year, but we barely used it once and Lacy was so exhausted she didn't really get to enjoy it. You will see this year was a wee bit better. Thanks Grammy and Grandpa:) September 2009-Lacy 3 just years.

Little Bundle

How cute are little babies all bundled up? I snapped this photo while Ashley was all bundled up in the bjorn on our 'ben-ture'(aka adventure) with grammy and grandpa, flying grandpa's gliders over the Hood River valley last week. I kept looking down and gushing over Ashley, so I attempted to capture it. Pretty funny though, I had to hold the camera up on my shoulder:) Yes, I do love babies all bundled, especially when they are mine!

Growing and Changing

Hard to believe these photos were almost 3 weeks ago now(at 11 wks) and I just feel like there are so many changes everyday in my sweet little girl. I think the biggest development is this girl has found her pipes! She loves to shriek and squeal...she will be heard:) It's quite adorable if you ask me!

It amazes me and warms my heart to see, even at this early stage, the love these sisters have for each other. Ashley just lights up when her big sister comes around and Lacy always wants to squeeze in a kiss whenever she can and join Ashley in whatever she is doing. That relationship will be one that I pray for diligently.

When the girls and I stay at my parents, our new arrangement is Ashley sleeps with me and Lacy sleeps with my parents. That way, neither little one will wake the other at a 'not-so-fun' time:) However, the only problem...SNORTING! The rest of us know it as snoring. Lacy is NOT a fan of snoring and both my parents are known to 'snort' on occasion, NOT to Lacy's liking. Well, one morning Lacy was really sleeping in and I figured I better check on her. I was concerned that she might just be patiently waiting on her bed. I open the door and I see her and because of how she is laying, I felt terrible, thinking she was awake. I walk around and about fell over, seeing she was ASLEEP! I ran back to get my camera....

The poor child fell asleep trying to drown out the dreaded snorting! At least she found a way to cope, I guess. definitely made my morning:)

Buh-Nana came to visit!!

We were thrilled that Lacy and Ashley's great-grandma was able to come for a visit the beginning of August(She came all the way from Montana!). She came with her sister-in-law, Marteena, and we enjoyed a nice day and Lacy was thrilled the all the great presents they brought with them! (so was mommy as Buh-Nana found some matching dresses:) Thanks so much for the great visit ladies.

Sissy, let me read to you

Back on August 17th, when Ashley was 10 weeks exactly, we were loading up from my parents house to head back to Hood River and I noticed Lacy joined in Ashley's tummy time. She wanted to "read" a book to her sissy. I hope you can see just how delighted Ashley gets when her big sister comes to entertain....just precious. I hope Eddy and I can continue and encourage their relationship so it will grow and flourish as they get older.
