mama's girl?

Ok...so we have been busy and happy and tired and thankful. That is us in a nutshell :) Really enjoying life with two little girls. One of my favorite things to say is "the girls and I are going to do... or the girls are sleeping... or the girls and I will be home." The plural is fun. And there have been a few times when both girls are crying at the same time and I smile really giddy-like. One of the most precious sounds ever is the sound of my babies crying! It is really a wonderful life!

A couple of fun things: today Jada wrote her name for the first time! She connected the dots that I did and she wanted to keep doing it over and over again. She did great, she didn't want to pick up her marker on the J but really did an excellent job don't you think?
And I thought I would give you glimpse at our sweet Kiva and her mom's baby pictures. Do you think we might have a little one that looks like her mom? We'll see!

Please keep in mind that I was 8lbs 7 ounces, born in the 70's and this was the photo my mom got at the hospital!

And this is our beautiful 4 week old daughter (as of Wednesday!) The obvious is that she is way prettier...BUT maybe people won't ask me if I am babysitting or say things like "she must look a lot like her dad." :)


  1. It IS so fun saying "the girls and I" or "my girls". I just love that! Its like lumping us together in one big team.

    Kiva is just beautiful. I think she definitely looks like your baby pic.

    All 3 of my girls look like their daddy or at least peole thing they do until they see a picture of me as a little girl. Its the reverse for us- they all have blond hair and green eyes. I on the other hand don't.

    Your fam is precious. Happy Thanksgiving yall!


  2. Oh my gosh she looks exactly like you!

  3. Wow, she looks just like you! Have a happy Thanksgiving - it's especially great with so much to be thankful for!

  4. haha! she does look like you, steph. you are both beautiful! i love you and miss you and hope you have a great thanksgiving with 2 girls!

  5. Kiva looks just like you did, but my baby girl was and still is a beauty!!
