My girls (and my honey too!)

Tinsley. Blakely. Sisters. My girls.

Oh how I love these two angels! They are the highlight of my days.

Blakely will be 8 months tomorrow. Getting too big and too fast! She skipped the army crawling and has been full on crawling for a couple of months now. She pulls herself up on things (including the brick fireplace- yikes!) She is such a joy. The happiest and easy going baby. She gives the widest open smiles. She sucks her thumb. She enjoys watching her sister play. She loves to be held (only by those she knows the best.) She says dada, mama, papa, baba, and a bunch of other stuff we don't understand. :) We are so blessed to have her in our family.

Tinsley is almost 28 months. She loves anything princess. She wears her princess Aurora dress or "Mickey Mouse dress" everyday over her clothes. I am not exaggerating... EVERYDAY! She loves to sit and look at her books and to be read to. She loves to be "fancy" like "Fancy Nancy." She is the best big sister and loves to hug and kiss Blakely. She can make Blakely laugh harder than anyone else can. She can spell her name and count to 14. She knows her ABC's and can point out all uppercase letters.... Okay, so maybe not ALL but close to it. :) She knows the first two articles of faith and loves to go to Nursery. She keeps us laughing with the funny things she says everyday. She is a full on girly girl and very sweet/gentle.

I also want to give a shout out to my husband.

He is a fun loving guy.

He often asks me, "What can I do to make your day easier for you?"

He still flirts with me.

He lets me put my cold feet on him to warm them up at night.

He'll spontaneously fold the laundry or do some other household chore for me.

When I ask him "Which shoes should I wear?" or "Should I wear my hair up or down?" He'll say, "They both look great but I think _____ looks best." Some women might not like that but I love it! He used to answer, "I don't know." or "They both look fine." It used to bother me so I told him to just say one way or the other. Sometimes I follow his opinion and sometimes I don't but I always appreciate an answer :)

He trusts me and I trust him.

He is a great dad.

He knows so much about the gospel. I love having gospel related conversations with him.

He's a hard worker.

He's easy going.

He calms me.

He ALWAYS has my back.

Again, I love my family!
