She is not safe anywhere! Last night while I was changing Adi on her changing table, Eli pushed the rocking chair up to her crib and jumped in. He played with all her blankies and toys, and jumped around a little, and then discovered that he couldn't get out!

Adilyne had her 2 wk. check-up yesterday. She looks great!! The dr. was very impressed with her weight gain, and how well she can hold her head up and look around. He said that she looks just like her big brother...other than the eyes! She will be 3 weeks tomorrow, and as of yesterday she weighs 8 lbs. 2 oz.!!! Not bad for only weighing 6 lbs. 12 oz. at birth! Mommy must have some good milk!
Sunday while I was holding Adi I started to hear a sucking sound. I looked down and saw that she had stuck her thumb in her mouth on her own, and was sucking like crazy!

Cozy Little Rooms

We have finally gotten most of Eliott's things hung in his bedroom, and are working on Adilyne's. Now that we know it's a girl, we can start looking for pink things for her bedroom! My cousin, Liz, -who is soooo talented- made these awesome canvanses to hang on her wall. They look amazing!!! Thanks soooo much Liz!

Here is the quiet little corner where we 2 a.m.
I couldn't decide if I should make a curtain for her window, or buy a curtain, so my Mom bought her this one. You can't really tell, but it has little light pink flowers all over. It looks perfect in her room. Yes, that is Eli playing in the curtain off to the left that covers her closet...of all the toys, he finds the best things to play with

Here's Eliott's room. My Dad helped out with lots of the hanging in here. His name turned out great on the wall. I'm surprised he hasn't tried to reach it from his crib yet...
Now that he goes to 'school' (ECFE) we have lots of projects that come home. Our fridge is already a little full, so we made him this sign to hang 'Eli's Art'. It works well!
We have put the hooks and shelf that Grandpa made to good use!

Due Date!

This is what we do when the baby is napping!
Checking on my little baby sister- she's so cute:)

I love to hold her all by myself!
Getting so big...
This is how Mommy puts on mascara!

Well- I'm due today and I have a 2 wk. old already! I can't believe how fast the past 2 weeks have gone. We've all adjusted quite well to the changes that have happened. Eli is still doing a great job as a big brother. Adi is slowly starting to spend a little more time awake each day, and still has her nightly routine down of getting up at 2 to eat, then again about 6. We have been busy this week getting ready for Adilyne's baptism this weekend. We'll have a little get-together with dinner back at our house after to celebrate. Should be a lot of fun! It will be a little interesting getting two little ones ready...Last weekend for church I started preparing 2 hrs. early, and I was still putting my coat and shoes on in the car as Chad drove! It amazes me how much longer things take...

Adilyne Jean- 6 days

We had Adi's newborn pictures taken at 6 days old. She already looks bigger on these! I can't believe how fast she's growing! Must be because she eats so well! She continues to be a good baby for us, and you can see how much Eliott loves her!

Here's what we have been doing...

Laying in Mommy and Daddy's bed. The first thing Eli wants every morning when he gets up is 'his baby'. He has to give her hugs and kisses:)

Yes, Eliott is wearing a skunk costume!!!! It looks so funny, you just have to laugh every time you look at him. He is going to be a skunk for Halloween, and I made the mistake of showing him the costume a little too early! I was thinking that he wouldn't want to wear it, that he'd be a little scared of it. It is actually quite the opposite of what I thought. We can't get it off of him! Whenever he has the option of what he gets to wear, this is what he chooses. We actually have it hidden most of the time- I'm not ready to take a skunk in public. Maybe in time I won't care anymore! As far as Eli as a big brother- He is wonderful!!! We were pretty nervous about how he would react to a new baby in the house. He couldn't be better with her. He loves his baby sister, and showers her with hugs and kisses. At the same time, he just leaves her alone for the most part. I can trust that if I walk away for a minute that he will leave her be. Although, I did see him try to 'gently' drive a tractor on her head the other day, but I have a feeling this won't be the last time! Poor little girl may end up with skid marks on her forehead! She'll be tough, though!

Adilyne is doing great! She is such a good baby, we sure are lucky! 2 nights ago I finally had to wake her up at 5:15 am to feed her. Yes, for the first time all night, I had to wake her to feed her! We sure can't complain about that! A typical night for her is to bed by 9:30, she eats at 2:00 am, and then again about 5:30 am. She like to sleep in then in the morning. She is still in bed right now, and it's 9:40!! Hopefully she'll be up soon. I really want to hold her! During the day she spends lots of time sleeping. We spend lots of time just looking at her.....such a perfect little baby:)
