Our internet hasn't been working, and Jacob has been taking the computer to school for finals. So, I'm very behind in the blogging world. Here are a few pictures to make you happy. Elijah fell asleep in the bumbo today while I was doing dishes. That man, likes his sleep. He's still an angel baby, but cuter now because he smiles at me. Luci's hair is finally long enough some pony tails! Can you tell she likes them? She especially loves staring into the mirror and admiring them. She asks for them every day now. She is such a big girl, it breaks my heart. Jacob got me a book from the library called, "You're not the Boss of Me"... It's much needed since Luci has become quite the boss lately. I just need to channel the independence right?? Love that girl :)

Buckle up...here come pictures

What have we been up to? Nana and Pop-Pop came to visit. Eli was blessed. Luci had a birthday cake. Swimming. Barbecuing. Sleeping. Playing outside. Etc...

What a special day. Thanks for an awesome experience Jacob and Eli.

Luci wanted a ladybug cake again this year, so I decided to change it up a little this year. I made banapple cake again with cream cheese frosting. The ladybugs are chocolate softies with whoppers on top. Mm those chocolate softies are delish, thanks for the recipe Deanna.
B...anca and Wyatt are some of Luci's favorite friends :) Even though their parents like to ditch me when I'm not looking..ha ha, just kidding.
Luci likes to stare at people when they're having fun. I'm not sure why. She does it at the park...instead of playing she stands in the middle and watches everyone else play?? silly girl.
This handsome boy has slept 6-6.5 hours straight at night! Thank you Elijah :)
Luci loves helping me and pretending like she is a mama. She needs a miniature mommy everything. She begs and begs to use the boppy nursing pillow while I'm feeding E, she steals the burp cloth, puts on my bras, and as you can see here pushes eli in her baby's stroller. She really is a great helper. She's been doing awesome as a big sister. Ps. Thanks for the outfit Rachel V. and Wendy!

Party Time

Say Cheese Birthday Girl!
Today Luci turned 2! She was so excited when she woke up to find a bunch of balloons in her room. Jacob told her happy birthday and for the rest of the day she kept saying, it's party time! and happy my birthday! She got to have monkey bread for breakfast, but of course she still asked for grapenuts... we asked her what she wanted for dinner and she said, "a smoothie please". So she had a green drink :) We made cupcakes with our friends, vanilla chiffon with lemon buttercream, yum. Thanks for coming over to celebrate with us! And thanks for all the calls we got today from family!

We got her a soccer ball and while we were outside kicking it around she saw the dog next door. The dog was scratching his ear, and Luci thought it was hilarious! She thought the dog was dancing because she kept saying, "He's shaking his booty!" She also told me, "mom, you're crazy" and "okey dokey artichokey" today. I'm really not sure where she get's all these sayings. Our favorite these days is when she says "see ya later racoon" instead of "see ya soon racoon", or "see ya later aligator". Love you Darlin'! Don't grow up too fast!
