Day 111-122

It’s been a whirlwind of a week (and a half). We took a little vacay for Chris’ birthday so the girls got some QT with Gramma last weekend!

Don’t worry, nothing changed while we were gone.

She’s still REALLY good at make up. πŸ˜‚

Gramma made sure the girls were decked out in Packers gear on Sunday, K got to show off her skills at gymnastics and L got to show off her new giggle and corner tooth! 🦷

And the splash pad was their hot spot πŸ™‚

Kensie was a little indifferent about us being gone and FaceTime was hit or miss with the moods. She’d either chat nonstop and be really excited or cry and say she wanted us to come home; however, the second we hang up she stops, acts like nothing is wrong and goes back to playing. πŸ™„

5 seconds later…showing Gramma β€œmy rainbow!”

And all week it has still been “her” rainbow and she kept telling me “mommy! Look! It’s gone. My rainbow is GONE!” (Que the drama…)

At least the little chunk was ALWAYS happy to see us.

While it was a great trip, we were both excited to get back home to the babes.

This last week flew by as we juggled getting back into our routine (whatever that is πŸ˜‚), squeezing in some extra family time and dealing with Kensie’s ever changing threenager attitude. 😣

Make up tutorials coming soon.

Leighton’s tooth is still working it’s way up and she has been NOMMING on her hands.

While I was picking up some last minute things for our trip, I found this awesome teething glove at Target!! Not only is it super cute, but it’s obviously brilliant!

While we’re on the product train, I also got K a new bow holder for our favorite Little Poppy Co. Bows!!!

A friend of mine found this on Etsy and I love how simple it is!! It is SO hard to find cute bow holders that are big enough. I think this one might do the trick. πŸ˜†

I linked her shop here and she can customize the size and colors for you!

…and if anyone knows where I can sell 500+ bows once the girls are done with them, let me know. πŸ˜‚

Until next time…

We out ✌🏼

Day 100-110

Life has been a little crazy this last week and a half and now I’m so far behind that I don’t even know where to start with these updates!

K spent a few days with her Grandma B last week and she had a blast!

She’s currently obsessed with Elsa, make up and nail polish.
πŸ‘€ elsa balloon…

She is still loving Gymnastics though sometimes she runs out of the activity they’re on to go back to the “bouncy bouncy” πŸ˜‚ she always crushes this circuit though!

KB started soccer as well…which is the the other thing she actually asked to do; yet, she spent the majority of the time wanting to go “play in mommy’s car”. πŸ™„

Some of the photos I took look like she is such a great listener and participant.

The reality was K and Addison prefer to just be on a play date without having to listen to any rules. πŸ˜‚

They’re the sweetest though

Kensie is making her way into full on Threenager mode and the last week involved the melt down of a life time. Full on kicking and screaming and losing her MIND.

BUT the journey has some sweet and entertaining moments, too.

2 going on 16 πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Never passes up a photo op if she gets to β€œhold” Elle

Seriously the BEST big sis. Always has the sweetest hugs, kisses and snuggles for β€œsister”

Now for the nice quiet one…πŸ˜†

Elle babe is growing so fast and I’m so grateful for the one on one time I get with her because K tends to take all the attention when she’s around. πŸ˜‚

All it takes is a little “hi!” for her sweet face to light up with a smile.

She’s ALMOST started to giggle, too! L loves to babble and talk and make noises and squeak. She is such a TROOPER and while I don’t think she’s had a consistent schedule for more than 2 days in a row with everything we have going on, L always goes with the flow.

We took both the girls to the UCF game over the weekend and it was L’s first (and probably last for at least a year πŸ˜‚) football game!!

L was an angel the whole time – it was K who brought the sass…shocking. πŸ˜‚ She did finally get out of the stroller to play with her best bud, Levi!!

These 2 are so freaking adorable together I cannot handle it!!!

So many people commented how brave we were to bring both the girls to the game but the reality is we have the best group of friends so we never have to do it alone!

With all the craziness we constantly have going on I have to say I am SO thankful for this tribe we constantly have around us. Our framily is seriously the best and always helping with (and spoiling πŸ˜†) the girls & loves them like their own. I’m so thankful they get to grow up with this amazing crew!

I’ve been a slacker with photos lately (and knowing where my phone is in general) but I managed to snap some photos of these gems. 😊

I’ve got to get on a better schedule with these posts – the more days I missed the harder it was to start. Maybe I should go back to daily…πŸ€“

OH MY GOODNESS…I don’t know how I almost forgot this one. It’s the highlight video of the week. K is obsessed with this babydoll…

Who is apparently her brother, named George. πŸ€¨πŸ˜‚

Day 96-99

Y’all remember my post about baby fever and wanting 10 more?

Well this post is the opposite of that.

I told Chris the other night that we are DONE. πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

The background to that statement was that sweet little Elle was screaming her freaking face off and nothing we did could calm her down. (I’m aware babies do this, but it was a first for her). See below…

No, she didn’t get her eyebrows waxed.

Then there was Kensie. Oh LORDDD Kensie.

This is the face of mischief.

I told her to get off of a cooler she was standing on and her response, as she looked me dead in the eyes with a straight face was,

β€œNo. I’m NOT listening to you!”

I am not sure where she learned it but she’s bout to unlearn it REAL fast or this “threenager” may not see 3. πŸ™„

And then there’s the Epic Elsa Meltdown of 2019. This started because UPS rang the doorbell, and Kensie was legitimately upset that it wasn’t Elsa. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€£

Back to chunk chunk (aka Elle)…she puked all over herself right before bedtime. I gave her a bath. All nice and clean. New PJs. Pick her up. Puked again. All over both of us.

Basically, I quit. It had been πŸ‘πŸΌ a πŸ‘πŸΌ day πŸ‘πŸΌ!

They’re lucky they’re cute. And, I don’t fault Leighton for her drama. I only fault the large one. 😜

The next day L had another semi meltdown and I’ve noticed she’s been munching on her fists more and more. Then….I saw it.

A TOOTH?! A freaking TOOTH!!!

No wonder this poor nugget was losing her mind! I honestly thought she was way too young to be teething once I noticed the fist munching and drooling, but apparently I was wrong. K didn’t get a tooth until 10ish months. L obviously has the competitive gene. πŸ˜†

That smileeeee ❀️❀️❀️

This past week was slightly exhausting with all the “hurricane but no hurricane” uncertainty and trying to keep this kiddo entertained all day – but in between the moments of chaos and drama, Kens was a little angel that just wanted to snuggle and sit with me and hold and kiss her sister.

…and this is why we keep them.

Day 87-95: Elle is 3 months old!

Not going to lie…barely knew what day it was today and wasn’t sure the last time I’d updated the blog πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

We had a jam packed week followed by this blur of a weekend (yes, it’s Wednesday and it’s still the weekend) as we all “hurry up and wait” on the world’s slowest hurricane!

I cannot believe this sweet babe is 3 months old already!!! She’s full of smiles, snuggles and wiggles!

Officially stuffed animal size
Shopping makes me this happy too, Elle babe!
Cannot leave this child unattended πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Best face to wake up to πŸ₯°

She makes the sweetest little squeaky noises and snores in her sleep. 🀣 Leighton is still the chilllest, best sleeping baby and great at occupying herself; though she prefers to be held and knows just the right smile with these chunky cheeks gets her picked up by anyone and everyone.

Brunch so hard πŸ₯‚

Elle likes to kick her legs, roll around and babble and squeal. She spends a solid hour a day on her play mat smiling at herself in the mirror. πŸ˜‚

She’s still not much of a pacifier baby which is weird to me since K was obsessed from the womb. She’s a great self soother and only uses it to go back to sleep at night or when she’s fighting a nap. She’s also started sucking on her hands lately and practically gags herself nomming on her fist. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

The most exciting news and development is she’s gained enough coordination to put her binky back in her mouth while we’re in the car. πŸ‘πŸΌ

She still isn’t a huge fan of riding in the car but she’s gotten much better! If she’s not having it, there’s no calming her down. πŸ˜…

While she keeps growing way too quickly and many things are changing, some never will…

Blowout Queen

KB is still our little wild child. The energy never ends! She’s got an obsession with painting and says “how about paint?” Every. Single. Day. Usually before 7a which is always a hard no. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Kensie has been BEGGING for a necklace & earrings and full disclosure: I used it to bribe her; but, my master plan sorta backfired and she ended up with a necklace & a “make up” kit. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚

Her latest hobby is asking anyone and everyone if she can do their make up. It’s quite the experience…😜

Has her momma’s shopping habits πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
The lipgloss obsession is another level

There’s not a day this kid doesn’t have us laughing at something and she doesn’t spare any entertainment for babysitters either. Our friend Sarah sent us this photo of Kens breastfeeding her babydoll and told her it was “on her nipple” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I mean, at least it’s accurate. πŸ˜†

She loves to play “ring-around the rosey” and clearly still wears her Anna and Elsa dresses at every opportunity.

The never ending hurricane/holiday weekend has probably been K’s fave since it’s been nonstop days of hanging with friends and family!

And of course she’s loving all the extra time with her “baby sisterrr”.

She walked in on our photo shoot and refused to move πŸ™„

Watching these girls together makes me a little less sad at how quickly L is growing and more excited to watch these 2 together as she grows! πŸ₯°
