So how dorky is it when people dress alike. Honestly. People just look silly. I think it is highly ridiculous and NOT necessary.Until I became a parent. I sewed a skirt for myself this week. I had leftover fabric and, how completely absurd of me, I sewed a matching skirt for Lily. What can I say call it lingering effects of pregnancy, hormones, getting old, or just being weird. Don't tell anyone but I thought we were pretty cute:)
The quest for a house continues. We actually have a contract on a house on the other side of Highlands Ranch. If everything goes through we will close the first week of June. SO EXCITING!

Happy Birthday JJ!

Jensen is TWO! I can't believe it. My little man is two. I am so proud of him. He is doing so much better on using words and being nice to Lily. He dosen't throw too many tantrums and he is so much fun to play with and to hug. I love being a mom. I can't believe I've been at it for two years now. There is so many small everyday rewards that make it wonderful. I love when Jensen says "ow oh"-for Love you. I love it when he gives really big squeeze hugs and a lip smack kiss on my cheek. I loves his constant invention of new things to entertain himself ( most of the time in trade for my sanity but I love it none the less). I LOVE being a mom of a two year old!

We got our big boy a big wheel. Unfortunately his little legs need to grow a bit for him to pedal it by himself, but he loves pushing the buttons and when we push him on it.

Lily eating a chicken nugget at McDonald's. We went there for Jensen's b-day dinner so he could run around in the play area. Lily has, just this week, really started eating solid food. She had grabbed and stuffed two nuggets in her mouth so fast and was happily gumming away at them before we even noticed:)

Ode to a scared kid
We have been having fun here at my parents house in Colorado. I am actively looking for a house for us to rent from my parents -and then hopefully own when Dave gets a full time job. It is fun but exhausting. It is also kinda sad to get your hopes up for a house and then have the deal fall through. We've got our teeth on a pretty good house and I'm excited so we will see how it goes.
I love Colorado because there are so many fun things to do. The kids and I fill our days with trips to the rec center pool or to the cool new park right by my parents house. The other day we even found an awesome little 1860's farm/museum. AND IT WAS FREE! I was excited to go with Jensen because he is getting so good at naming his animals and making their sounds.
We got there (and of course the camera batteries died) but Jensen pretty much looked like this the whole time.

We didn't stay that long:)
We will try again soon. Hopefully he won't be as scared. Next time.

We also put our little climber into gymnastics. SO FUN! It is a parent tot class so I get to go around with him and do all the little activities. He loves it. Andi it helps home sleep better and he even behaves a bit more the rest of the week. So high five on gymnastics.



I got my hair cut really short and body wave permed. It is something I've wanted to do for a while but was always to chicken. I think it turned out pretty good and it is easy to take care of so- five points to me:) I'll post pics of my hairdo later.

So a lot of people have commented on how much Lily looks like me. I thought that was nice of everyone because she is so cute. I did a little digging out of the old photos and what do you know she kinda does look like me. Kinda erie.

This one is me at 9 months-

And Lily-

She has been pulling herself up to stand on pretty much anything. There are a couple of bumps on her head but other that that she is doin really well.
