Emily trying ice cream. She was about 10 months old in this picture.
Emily's almost 2 1/2 in this picture. I think! We're at the San Antonio zoo.
This was last month at the San Antonio Zoo, in front of the elephants. Lily's 6 months.
This was when Lily was 6 months old and we went to Corpus Christi.
This was when Emily was 11 months old and we had just moved to Texas. She and Lily both have hernias in the picture. Emily's was fixed when she was 2. Hopefully Lily's won't need to be fixed!
We're doing well here. Robby came home the other day and said that tickets were really cheap right now to Hawaii, and that we should go. He didn't have to tell me twice! So, after much debating, planning and researching, we are going to Hawaii next month! We'll be gone for 6 days. Neither of us have been, so we're very excited. We're spending 3 nights in Waikiki and 3 nights in Laie, on the North Shore of Oahu (by BYU-Hawaii and the Polynesian Cultural Center). We're taking Lily with us. So any advice on hidden Hawaii secrets?
Lily is very funny. The other night while I was at Young Women's ( I work with the 12-13 year old girls now at church) Lily learned how to "talk." She now will say babadadagaga...She will say DaDa if Robby says it first, which of course is fun for him. We haven't heard MaMa yet. Today at church he was whispering it (dada) and she whispered it back. She just smiles and smiles. People keep warning us that not all babies are like this, so we figure we'll just enjoy it while we can! She's also learned to sit by herself, even though she still will fall backwards occasionally. Having a child do all these things is quite amazing for Robby and I.
I'm still getting nothing done around the house. It's really true that children need a schedule! I feel like I'm 5 years old without one. There's plenty of stuff I could be doing, but I think that because none of it seems "worthwhile" (who wants to clean their house, really?) I just don't get anything done besides the basics that I got done when Emily was here. Hopefully I'll get it together soon!
