We're Back!

It has been quite a while. I am much busier with two than I ever imagined! Alot has happened since my last post. We have had a rough winter with both girls getting sick a good bit. That is one thing that has kept us so busy.I will try to catch our one or two readers up on our lives.

We just celebrated three wonderful years of marriage. Matt had a final the next morning so he spent it in the library and me with the two girls. Maybe next year we can take a little trip.

Matt has gotten a job secured after graduation in May. We will get to stay in Jackson and he will be working for an incredible firm. We could not feel more blessed. He just finshed his 2nd to last semester.

Ella Katherine has turned two and had a circus themed low key party. She had a blast. She is learning things left and right, and she amazes me everyday. She can learn the words to any song, (Should've Put a Ring on It and Apple Bottom Jeans are among her favorite unfortunately). She has already knocked her front tooth loose and we are in the process of saving it. She is constantly on the move and is full of herself!

Hart was recently Christened at our new church that we are in the process of joining. We just love it. She is getting quite active. She just turned eight months. I think she is going to be a slow developer like EK was. She has no interest in crawling. She is seriously the best baby I have ever been aroung. We are so fortunate.

The McPhail's just welcomed another baby. Sweet little Logan was born on December
17th. My sis in law, Jenny, is doing great. I can't believe my brother is a Dad. There are four generations of McPhail men now. We will be going to Birmingham tomorrow to meet him. I can't wait to get my hands on that little cutie!

Oh and we also are in the process of selling our townhome. Keep it in your prayers please! I am posting a few pics of the girls off my mom's camera. I am in Collinsville right now and these are the only pics I have with me. More to come later.

Ella Katherine reminds me so much
of my one of my grandmothers that she is
after that it freaks me out. Something about this
picture just screams Eloise.


So today Matt and I were cleaning while Ella Katherine was supposedly napping. We always have the video monitor in the room with us, but for some reason today we did not. I heard a thud upstairs and went to check it out. When I approached the stairs I heard things hitting EK's door. That little squirt had figured out how to climb out of her crib. It's amazing she did not hurt herself. When I opened the door, this picture is what I saw. She must have been out of the crib for awhile without us knowing. She destroyed her room.

We went to Elmo Live here in
Jackson. Grandma Lynn kept
Hart. We had a blast. Ella Katherine
danced the entire night and was
amazed that she was seeing the
real Elmo!

DaDa is Home!

Daddy is finally home after a very long month in Army training. Mommy is one happy camper now. Ella Katherine was so excited to see him at the airport. The video is from EK's first time to see Matt outside of the gate. So sweet!! Hopefully it isn't messed up. It is not working right on our computer.

Next Thing on my Christmas List

My neighbor spotted this beauty and I stole the pic from her. I think this would look just fabulous across the mom mobile!! Brave move to drive with that in Jackson.

Cousins: "La" and "Jasa"

We went over to Ho Ho and Pat's tonight to visit and eat some delicious meatloaf. Grayson and Ella Katherine had a blast playing with each other. Grayson refers to EK as "La" and EK calls Grayson, "Jasa". So cute!! I love that they have so much fun together. Sorry Grayson about the Elmo book that Ella Katherine destroyed tonight. Excuse EK's boy pajamas. I didn't take any with me.

Girls around three months.

These are both girls right around three months. Anne-Hartley is one week shy of three months. I don't think they look as much alike anymore. Its crazy how much difference a few weeks can make. Anne-Hartley is in the top picture and Ella Katherine is in the bottom.

Two Month Checkup

We had Anne-Hartley's two month check up last week. She weighed 11.6lbs.(75th percentile), 24 in. (90th percentile), and head circumference was 38cm. (25th percentile.) She is a good bit bigger than Ella Katherine was at this point. EK usually stayed around the 50th percentile in every category. She did great with her shots. She cried for about two seconds and was fine. She never got fussy and had no reactions. Such a blessing. The doctor also said that she has the interaction of a four month already.

She is starting to come alive. She smiles constantly and starting to giggle and coo a little. She is the sweetest baby. She has been sleeping through the night for a couple of weeks now. She already loves her big sister. Ella Katherine will pop her or jab her passy in her face among many other things, and she will just smile at her. It's so precious. Have I mentioned how much I love this girl?

Anne-Hartley is on the bottom and Ella Katherine is on the top. Maybe its just me, but they could pass for twins. I am starting to notice some differences though.
