I need to retake this monthly pic with Minnie mouse.  Alli just wasnt in the mood for pics!

Allison was ready to eat! Until I gave her squash.  She tried a bite or two and wasnt so sure then she started gagging and spitting it out! She didnt like carrots when I gave them to her either.  SO I did try the squash again and she ate a little but it sure isnt a favorite.

Sweet Baby!

Rolling both ways!

This afternoon Allison was working so hard on rolling over from her back to her stomach.  Of course as soon and I get up to go in the kitchen she does it without me seeing! Now she just keeps doing it over and over again tonight.  She is really starting to enjoy her toys now.  I think I was wrong on the tooth on the top but there are 3 on the bottom.  I have been trying to get some good 4 month pics of her and so far I havent gotten anything that I just love yet.  She won't smile for me until we are done with the pictures!

At the park again!!

I decided to take the Girls to the park again today.  Jon went to ride his dirt bike and it was a nice morning so we went! The weather was great at first.  Then the longer we were there the cooler it got.  Now it is storming! I packed us lunch and we had a few bites of it and finished it in the car! We all had a good time though.  I knew I was going to bring the stroller since I had two bags with me.  Of course Lauren wanted to ride in the stroller! So the main goal was for me to walk and boy did I! Carrying Alli, pushing Lauren with all the bags!! Allison got tired so I turned her facing in and she fell asleep!! It was sweet!

Just a few pics from tonight

I just wanted to snap a few pics tonight.  Allison had on her new bunny sleeper. I finally got on video Allison rolling over!! Both Girls playing.  Lauren has Jon's iphone.  She loves it! She uses it just as much as he does!!

Trip to the park

Friday was so nice out so Allison and I went to the park for a walk! As you can see in the picture Alli still isnt too happy riding in the car but she really enjoyed herself when we started walking.  She started giggling and didnt stop till we got up by the playground equipment.  It was so cute! Lauren was with Nana at her house for a few nights.  So today when Lauren got home I decided we 3 would go to the park and walk again.  Lauren brought her scooter.  It was a little far for her to be on the scooter but she did fine with it.

Video of Alli playing with her taggie ball

I taped this on Monday and I am just now getting around to uploading it. Allison has really started grabbing on to things and putting them in her mouth. Her two favorites are the taggie ball and this monkey that sings. She will grab the monkey by the ears and pull it to her and chew on its face! She is laughing so much more now. If I get her laughing really hard she is still getting the hiccups! She is "talking" alot more also. Anywhere I take her I wear the carrier and she loves to look at and smile at people. She is also pulling her head and neck forward. If I remember right with Lauren it wasnt too long after that she was sitting up! After her bath this morning I was brushing her hair and I was supporting her sitting up and I let go for a second to see how she did and she sat up by herself! It was that lean forward sit but she did it!!

Valentines Day

Lauren checking out her valentine's surprise this morning.

Allison checking out her Valentine suprise! She was actually "talking" to this frog! I think she likes it!!

Painting a picture for Mimi and Pawpaw. She did such a good time on both paintings! I couldnt get her to write her name on this one though. Excuse the messy hair we did this before bath time!

Lauren wrote all the letters herself!! She was running out of room on her name and she didnt want to write over the heart. She did this one for Nana and Pops.

Look new shoes!! Well actually I guess these are her first shoes! They are so cute on her!

More teeth!

Allison was doing that funny thing with her tongue again so I thought she might have gotten another tooth. And she does! It is now 3 on the bottom and one on the top!

You watch the news??

Jon and I dont but if you do then you just might have seen our Lauren on it!! Mimi put her picture on the news website and they showed it on the news last night! This is the second tv appearance for Lauren. The first was on her first Halloween in the pumpkin patch. Sure wished I would have spiced up the picture now!! lol! I told Lauren she was on tv and she said really wow that is great mom!!!

yesterday pics

The pictures are in reverse order but I had to get at least one of Alli yesterday. Poor thing not feeling good.
Just playing with my camera and getting the snow!

Here is the craft Lauren made all by herself. Even her name! Not sure why the E is backwards. She did that a few times lately.

Painting a masterpiece! I really only like for her to play with this outside but she has painted inside twice since christmas and she has done really well. she does LOVE to paint!

Another trip to the doctor

Today I had to take Allison to the doctor again. Last night she really scared us. She woke up and was so stopped up and she screams when I am trying to suck the snot out well she was crying so hard and so stopped up she was choking! A few times! So I was scared she was getting worse instead of better. Her cough changed and at first Jon thought it was getting better but then after she did all that in the middle of the night he wasnt so sure then. I made an appt and got it fast this morning. Allison's lungs are clear and her oxygen was at 99 so that is GREAT! The doctor said if she was going to have gotten worse she would have already done it and that is she past the worse of it. I was afraid she had lost some weight but she was still the same at 12lbs 8oz. The doc said the cough that both Girls have could last for like a month or two! I sure hope not since neither of them actually had anything in their lungs. It is just all nasal stuff. I feel much better knowing she is getting better now!

I was watching Allison yesterday to see if she was waking up since she was making noise. Well she went to roll over and was so close the rail of the bed and hit her head on the rail! Now I know why sometimes she wakes up all smiles and other times not! She moves around so much in the bed and always heads for the side of the bed! Thankgoodness she hasnt hit it hard enough to have a bump or anything. She probably has Jon's hard head too!!

We woke up to it snowing really hard today!! Jon had a snow day also! It started melting pretty fast so we got out there to play for a bit. I didnt get to stay too long before Allison woke up but I got a few pics. You can see they made a snowgirl! Jon really spent way too much time on those boobs! Lauren didnt want to get her picture made with it he said!

Lauren making a snow angel!

This was the first time Lauren went sledding. Alot of people had already been going down on the snow so it wasnt too great Jon said. Looks like we need to get a sled!!
We are about to make some snowcream. I have never had it before so we will see how it goes!
Lauren has been all about doing crafts lately. I bought her this foam set to make valentine's out of and they turned out so cute! She did them all by herself! I will post pics later. She also decided she wanted to draw people today and did a really good job at it! Then she cut them out. She needs to practice with the scissors. Then she painted for a bit.
Allison is doing better. Her voice has came back today not completely but much better than the last two days.

Both of the Girls have RSV. Allison woke up at 2am last night and started coughing. I knew she had what Lauren has when I heard the cough. I had to take Alli to the urgent care and they tested her for RSV and came back positive. The doctor then said that is probably what Lauren has as well but when the child is older than usually dont think to test for it. So I am camping out in Alli's room tonight. She is so hoarse and I dont want her to cry for long so I am in here with her all night. I am also afraid I wont hear her if I sleep in my room since her cry is so soft right now. She is sleeping in her swing in here. As soon as I lay her down in her bed she wakes up so the swing it is. I sure hope she feels better soon! Lauren is doing better. It never slowed her down any!

Doctor trip for both

I took both Girls to the doctor yesterday. My Mom went with me and it was a huge help! It gets kinda crazy with two! Allison is 12lbs 8oz! They changed her reflux meds so we will see how that goes. Lauren is being treated as if she has bronchotis but they didnt do an x-ray but her cough sounds like it. I always thought you got that if you let a cold get too bad but she didnt start showing signs of being sick until tuesday and then she had a cough and running nose. I thought just another cold but wed. her cough was even worse and she started running fever. Lauren is 31lbs. I think she gained one whole pound in a year! lol! I guess that is normal for her age though.
