Jamie's graduating!

I took some senior pictures for Jamie recently.
I'm not trying to be a professional by any means,
but it has been fun to experiment with the
camera and take pictures of people other than my kids.
Here are a few of my favorites.

Leija Littles

{ Olivia }

1. She cried when Lola got her first shot today.
She said, "You're mean, mom! 
I told you she wouldn't like it! I told you!"
2. She loves her cousins so much and is always
asking to hang out with them.
3. She likes me to do the "twisty thing" to her hair.
Aka- braid it.
4. She's sad about having to be in a new class next year.
She really loved her teachers in the 2s class.
5. It totally trips me out that she doesn't
need to drink from a sippy cup anymore.
(Although she still does at home.)

{ Lola }

1. Lola had her two month check up today.
She's currently 12 pounds and 5 oz
and 23 inches long.
2. Her doctor seems to think her colored eyes
are here to stay.
3. She has one 5 hour stretch pretty much every night now.
4. She LOVES her daddy!
She gives him the biggest smiles.
5. She loves to look at trees outside.

Lola: 2 Months

My beautiful baby girl is 2 months old today.
Where is the time going??
I won't know her exact weight and measurements 
until Tuesday after her appointment,
but I'm going to guess she's about 13 pounds.

She's still eating around 3.5 oz every 3ish hours.
She's sleeping for about 4 hours at a time during the night.
Sometimes we'll get an occasional 5.

Lola is such a joy.
It's been an amazing 2 months.

Leija Littles

{ Olivia }

1. She's getting the cutest little tan lines
on her feet from her sandals.
2. Her favorite song right now is the one 
that goes, "I don't care.
I love it."
No idea what it's called, 
but she sings it all the time.
3. She can count to six in Spanish.
4. She's currently obsessed with temporary tattoos.
5. She's seriously the sweetest kid in the world.
I can't even count how many
times during the day that she tells me
she loves me.

{ Lola }

1. I'm pretty sure Lola loves Olivia already.
She gives Livi her complete attention.
2. According to our scale, 
she's a little over 12 pounds.
3. Her finger nails grow so fast!
I can't remember if Olivia's grew this fast
or not, but geez!
4. Her little arms are starting to get so chubby.
I love it.
5. She got her first little sunburn on 
her face this past weekend.
Poor baby was in the shade the entire time,
but I still felt horrible!

Sunday at Discovery Green

Today we took the girls
(and Erica's family) 
to Discovery Green.
We had the best time
even though we're all recovering
 from some sunburns now. 

^^ Lola spent most of her time napping. ^^

^^ View from the park ^^

^^ These little cousins are the cutest. ^^

^^ Pretty bluebonnets everywhere ^^

^^ Canoeing with my big girl ^^

Such a fun day. 
We can't wait to go back.

Putting down the phone.

^^ Posting this photo just because it's so dang cute ^^

Like most Americans, 
Luis and I are always on our iPhones.
I mean, with all the social media apps,
games, internet access,
it's a full time job just to keep up!
But neither of us want to be those parents
that are always on their phones and not paying
attention to their kids.
(You know you've seen them.)
So we're committing to not checking
our social media sites and apps
on Sundays and focusing on family
time with the girls instead.
I am so excited about this.
And I totally love having a husband that
values the same things I do.
