5 months

Sweet David we love you. You are such a happy baby. I love when you wake up from a nap and I hear your little cries and I come into the room and the moment you see me, you smile. It melts my heart. You are quite a content happy boy and have really began noticing everything around you. If anything is within your reach you are grabbing for it to put in your mouth. You have done so much growing this month!

You are 15 pounds. Still wear some 3 month clothes but also wear some 6 month clothes.
You roll from back to tummy. All day long. 
You tried your first solid foods. You have had carrots, yams and rice cereal. You don't like them at first but after a few spoonfuls you do. 
Sleeping much better! We have done some sleep training and you are a totally new baby. You now nap for at least an hour and a half two times a day and you generally only get up once during the night. This is huge! You used to get up every 2-3 hours and it drove me wild. 
You now take mostly bottles. Which is likely why you are sleeping better. I just don't think you got enough from nursing cause you seemed to eat all day long. So sadly, nursing is becoming a thing of the past much sooner then I expected or wanted but we are all getting more sleep so it's a good thing!
Love the exersaucer. Which makes me love that big contraption that takes up so much space because you can sit and play for a long time in there. 
Talk talk talk. Literally from the time you get up you are talking and it goes on all day. 
Love to look at yourself in the mirror. It's almost when you smile the biggest. You just love yourself which is great. 
You giggle the most when I tickle you around your collarbone or try to eat your tummy and cheeks.
We worked really hard to get you to take a pacifier thinking it would solve your sleep problems, just to undo it and not ever give you a pacifier so you learned to fall asleep on your own. You handled it like a champ, probably because you didn't like the pacifier in the first place.
You LOVE being outside. You are content to lay on a blanket in the shade and stare at the sky.

His eyes get me. So big and blue.

David was wearing a hat so of course Sienna needed one, which called for a sibling picture!

I can't handle the cuteness of this boy.

 Sienna loves him so much. 
 We taped balloons to our ceiling fan. David loved watching them go around and especially loved them hitting his face.
He is a little fish. When he is grumpy for no apparent reason he gets a bath and its instant happiness.

We love you big boy!

Sienna the not so terrible two year old...yet

My baby girl is two. I guess she is officially not a baby anymore and has moved up to toddler status. Woot woot. Wow, words can not describe how much I love this crazy, sweet, temperamental, girl.

At 2 Sienna likes to
- play with my make up
- Watch Peppa pig
- Peel things, like oranges, hard boiled eggs, and the tops of yogurt.
- Get her hair curled
- Eat gum (my mistake for ever letting her have a little piece)
- Sleep with music playing
- Hang out with Nana and grampy
- Pull out the elastics in her hair, making for a grumpy mama.
- Play with her friends Ivy, Bria, Caleb, and Emmett
- Paint her toenails
- Go high in the swing
- Jump in the jolly jumper
- Call animals by their sound/action. Cat=Meow Bird= Tweet tweet Bunny=Hop Owl=Who. She calls dogs pup pups and part of me wonders if thats her saying ruff ruff or something?
- Be outside as much as she can
- Loves to look at bugs
- Jumping in puddles

Her Favorites

- Having her hair done
- When mom doesn't let her do things by her self, like pour milk, put on lipstick, use hand sanitizer
- When she can't see nana right then
- Going to the doctor
- Have the snot sucked from her nose
- When she can't use the ipad
- When we sing "As I have loved you"
- when I am holding David, because then I can't do as much with her.

Puzzles with grampy

 Poor girl was sick for a week. She fell asleep with yogurt, vitamin c, and fruit leather. And tiger was her best friend
Just listening to some tunes while painting.

 Loves being with brother where ever he is
I love/hate this phase. Wanting to be in certain clothes all day, every day

 David doesn't have any toys for himself. Sisi has part owner ship. She has so much fun in the jolly jumper. I wish I had brought it out earlier.
Oh how I love when she lets me curl her hair. She looks adorable. After I had curled her hair I asked if she wanted to look in the mirror, which she did and she smiled so big. Right after that she started drawing around her lips with her finger saying "face" which means she wants lipstick. She already nows when you get your hair done nice you gotta finish the look with make up.

Loves playing in the snow and kept stealing frosty's nose!

Playing with moms make up.

Easter bunnies

 Cuddle time with Nana, very likely watching frozen.
Getting a pedicure with mama.

When did she get so big that she can climb up ladders all by herself?!

How we find her most nights.
We love snap chat. 

Park days are the best day.

She asks to go to the pool everyday. We need it to be summer!
