Saturday morning both girls were awake around normal time which is somewhere between 7 and 7:30. We all snuggled in the big bed for quite a while and it was so nice! I love morning snuggles in our bed even though sometimes they don't last long before Avery is asking for some cereal and a Curious George episode! Look at these two cutie pies!

I know you're not supposed to brag--but I have to tell you what my sweet little Bailey is doing. Just think of this as a way for me to document the milestone so I don't forget. :) For the past 3 nights, Bailey has been sleeping 12 hours straight....7:30 pm-7:30 am! She is only 10 weeks old. Avery was and still is a great sleeper, but she didn't do it this early! We have battled with Bailey for her whole life on sleeping well...she just could not stay asleep. But she has found her tummy and her fist and now she is a happy girl...and when baby is happy, the whole house is happy! Come back soon for a Braggy Mommy post about Avery!

One of the great parts about having kids is the nice deduction you get come tax time. (Well it doesn't really compare to the money you spend on them throughout the year!) Anyway, someone gave us this onesie when Avery was a baby so I had to do a comparison picture. What's funny is Avery was 5 months old in the bottom picture and Bailey is only a little over 2 months! And this is a 0-3 month onesie! Bailey isn't really that chunky anymore, but she is obviously much chunkier than her sister was! Their newborn pictures look so much alike, but now I am starting to tell a real difference in their looks. It's fun to compare pictures.

These are pictures of us visiting my grandparents. Avery and Bailey are so blessed to have 5 great-grandparents. All of mine and Craig has one grandmother still living. They all sure do love these girls!
We visited Avery and Bailey's cousins Ashley, Austin, and Ashton. These kids have such a great time playing together! It's a shame they don't live closer and get to see each other more often. Ashley loves to hold Bailey (and loved to hold Avery when she was a baby, too). She will be a great mommy one day! I just love Avery's expressions in some of these pics.

These are all random pictures from last month. Bailey was about 6 weeks old in most of them.

Last month on Valentine's Day, we thought Avery needed to go do something fun. We had been in the house pretty much for a month since little sister arrived, and Avery was due an outing. Also Aunt Staci was here to visit that weekend, so she got to bowl, too! She was thrilled. :) This was Avery's very first time to go bowling and they let her use the little ramp for kids. She loved it and also loved eating lunch at the snack bar afterwards. It wasn't the cheapest outing we've ever done, but we had fun and we forgot how much we liked to bowl! Also, Bailey was exactly one month in her picture. I haven't been doing very well at taking pictures on her "month birthday" like I did with Avery, but thankfully got a picture of her on this day. OK so we're not even to 3 months yet--I will do better!
