Picture catch-up

These are some of the snapshots I've taken in the last few months from my cell phone. Hang onto your hats, there are more than 50 pictures in this post!

Lexi feeding Elmo a goldfish:

















Snuggling:

















Natalie wearing her Christmas stockings as slippers:

















Feeding baby a cheerio:

















Dr. Ernie is in!

















When I had the stomach flu, this is where Rudy was most of the day. He never left my side. (even when I went running to the bathroom, he was trotting next to me)
















They are buddies:
















Natalie's He-Man shirt from Uncle Cory. She loves this shirt. LOVES IT!

















Help from Daddy:

















Mike took this. He's a proud gamer-Daddy:
















After Natalie's round of stomach-flu, the car seat had been washed and reassembled. (yet again, I point out to you that children will always manage to puke in car seats) Lexi thought it was hilarious to sit in "Nah-Nah's" car seat!
















My mom had major ankle surgery 6 weeks ago. She gets around on a kneeling scooter. When I took this, we were waiting for Dad to bring her home from the surgery center, and Lexi was trying out her new wheels.

















LOVE THEM!
















Waiting for Natalie to get out of school:
















Snuggled up in MawMaw and PawPaw's bed. Anything we visit, this is where you can find them:
















Or if not in their bed, you can find Lexi here:
















She's apparently going somewhere:

On our way home. I love how affectionate they are together:

Fun with Monnie before bedtime:

Timeout:

Drawing:

Napping (because she refused to earlier!)


During one of our recent visits to my parents house, Lexi woke up with croup in the middle of the night. It was pretty serious, but thankfully not quite worthy of an ER trip. I have always noticed how different she looks when she has croup. This was the next morning, she woke up with fever and more stridor:
I have recently had her evaluated by a pediatric ENT because of how much she has had croup. (over 7 times now) It is terrifying. Lots of details in her case, but I am in the process of going for a second opinion with a different ENT.

Natalie snoozing on the way home:

Waiting for Natalie to get out of school again:

I keep having to put Lexi back in bed in the middle of the night. Some nights, I put her back in several times. She just seems to scoot out while sound asleep. Any advice?? I'm going to try a rolled up towel along the edge (under the fitted sheet) and see if that helps.

Loving on Rudy-Roo:

Looking at the pictures on Daddy's phone:

My girl:

Our dog has become lazy. All he does is sleep most of the day. He's still skinny as can be, so I'm not worried, but still. Go get a job already, Rudy.

Valentine's Day pictures:

Going through Natalie's class valentine's:

Snuggled up with Pop:

Treats from Nani:

Self portrait of our family:

Sister love:
It's a bit hard to cut fabric when Lexi is determined to snuggle on all of it!!
Snow day!! (this is actually from last week...we're finally getting caught up) They refused to just look at me and smile...they had to yell:

I caught Natalie stockpiling snowballs while I was shoveling our sidewalk. This resulted in a 20 minute snowball fight, and I will never forget the giggles (or trash-talking from my 6-year-old!) it was so much fun. We fell into the house exhausted, happy, and shared some hot chocolate.

Then (b/c Daddy worked 2 days straight) we had a girls night! We ordered pizza, painted our nails, and ate ice cream while we watched a princess movie. Spending time with my daughters doesn't get any better than this!!

Waiting for nails to dry:

That night (VERY late) Mike came home with severe pink eye. It was horrible and the whole left side of his face was swollen. He had already started antibiotic drops, but because of the snow (and chaos it causes at the airport) he couldn't get away to pick up the Rx soon enough. (when he needed it) Another co-worker took pity on him (Mike was scheduled to work another 9 hours) and sent him home early and covered for him. The girls were thrilled Mike was home and couldn't wait to take him out in the snow.

Natalie rolling the start of a (small) snowman:

So here is Mike out in the blindingly-bright snow (with extreme eye sensitivity) with his girls. Just another reason (among thousands) why he is such an amazing Daddy.

Reading to Lexi:

This was yesterday, on our way home from picking Natalie up from school. It's Dr. Seuss week at their school, and Natalie wore her Minnie/princess hat. Lexi wore it all the way home:

This is from this morning (I know! We're finally all caught up!!) She loves Mickey, and has hers all wrapped up in a blanket, rocking him, and kissing him.
