Woah, It's 2015

I mean, seriously, for those 2 or 3 of you that are still reading, THANK YOU and I'm not sure why you hung around! The last post was from when Vivy was 2 months old?!?! She's 2 now. I'm not even gonna fib and say something like, "I resolve to write more in the New Year." Though, I should. I miss it. I'm just so random most of the time, but I guess if you know me at all, you know that's pretty much what you're gonna get.

Anyway, Vivy is 2 now. She started daycare months ago, and she still cries every morning. She's the sweetest little girl though and is only a chore when it's time to go to bed. You can always count on Vivy's tiny feet to run up and down the hallway, hours after both girls have gone to bed. She's smart, and she loves to read. Everything is "pink" to her (what's your favorite color? what flavor do you want? Yes, apparently "pink" is a flavor). She loves singing and dancing and taking pictures (I love that part!)

Addy is 5 now. She's in Kindergarten and has done both soccer and cheerleading. Addy is sassy and strong, opinionated and short-tempered (very much like daddy). She's still a champion sleeper, though, and you can always count on her to sleep right through all of Vivy's antics at night. We're trying to teach her to try more foods, but most nights if asked, she just wants "chicken and rice". Which means, EVERY meat we feed her is "chicken". Shhh! She is very much a princess and loves to be the center of attention.

Okay, that's your quick catch-up. How about some pictures?




 Okay, no promises, but I'll try to be back more often than every three years!

Vivy's Two Months and an Addy Milestone

Last week was Vivy's two-month mark, and here are her (very healthy) stats: 13 lbs 3 oz (85-95%), 22.25 in height (25-50%), and 39.75 in head circumference (85-95%). Click here to see how Addy measured up at 2 months (needless to say, Vivy is sort of winning the size race so far). Here are some pictures to get you through the next month:

 Happily waiting in the pediatrician's waiting room ... she has no clue what awaits her (SHOTS):


 Have been slacking on the "real" picture-taking simply because it's so much easier to snap a quick shot on the phone ... PLUS, there's cool apps for these:




 Addy's very FIRST visit to the dentist, and she did GREAT:

Introducing . . . (hey, better late than never)

Vivyana Grace Brooks!
Yesterday marked Month 1 for Miss Vivy, and my has time flown! Having 2 girls at home is both a joy and a handful (not gonna lie ;) but we love it and are taking each new day as it comes. Vivy has had a few challenging nights which the pediatrician said is normal, but I believe (and hope) that she's starting to reach her sleeping stride. At her 1 week appointment, she was a whopping 8 lbs 4 oz and here at her 1 month, she's a healthy (and big) 10 lbs 8 oz!!! Miss Addy had her 3 yr check up and got a clean bill of health as well. We're blessed!

Anyway, here are some pictures:

 Another "daddy's little girl", huh:

Happy New Year and Happy New Pictures!!

Bad blogger mommy, it's been a minute since I last posted. AND so much to share! First, since we couldn't send our Christmas Card out to EVERYBODY this year, here it is for those of you who didn't get one:




The pictures on the card are from a great session at Roswell Mill back in October. We had an incredible time with Katie, the photog from Minutes of Love Photography. Here are a few more pictures from that shoot (Addy-bug is getting to be such a BIG girl):











And finally (last, but most certainly not least), our BIG news for 2012:



May you be blessed with love and health in the New Year. Thanks for keeping up and "Keeping the Faith" ;)! More updates to come.
