Look who got earrings =]

How sassy is this picture? It was taken on Saturday after me, Lilly, and Mom had a girls day out! While we were in the mall, I decided that I wanted my second piercing in my ear. Well, after thinking about it for a few minutes...Lilly decided that she had to get her ears done as well. Me and Mom talked about it for awhile and she called Dad and got everything straightened out. We told Lilly that she could get earrings too. We did let her know that it would hurt for only a minute. She didn't seem to mind so she crawled up in my lap and the two ladies counted to three and pierced her little ears. She screamed bloody murder and latched on to me for dear life. My heart was broken and me and mom just looked at each other like what did we do to this baby. After about thirty seconds, Mom held up a mirror for Lilly and her eyes lit up and she instantly stopped crying. Ever since that moment, she keeps looking in the mirror and says "Hey there pretty girl!" Such a sassy girl!!

And the little princess also wanted me to share this with you all...her new big girl bedroom!

Hey everyone, first off I want to apologize for neglecting my blog. I am just so incredibly busy with work and school. There really isn't much time for internet, because in my spare time...I want to spend time with my family. I actually have a free day today so I wanted to do blog makeovers and updates! Well, the little man is doing wonderful and we will be officially adopting him in May! We are so blessed and so happy! As of right now, we are trying to decide on his name that he will be given on Adoption Day. We know that Rayden will stay his first name but his middle name will change. We are debating on Rayden Caleb, Rayden Alexander, or Rayden Josiah. So we have a pretty good little list to narrow down.

Rayden is such an amazing baby! He loves to just look around and observe everything thats going on around him. He is eating baby food now and has a very stable schedule. And we are very happy to announce that he sleeps all through the night! This is such a blessing to for Lilly didn't sleep all night for almost 8 months!

Miss Lilly is being such an awesome big sister! She always runs to the rescue when Rayden makes one little noise. Since the last update, Lilly now has her own big girl room and she doesn't share with me anymore. I really miss having her in the room with me, but she was just to big for her baby bed. Her vocabulary is amazing, she is having complete adult like conversations with us. She is so much fun!

Now that you have an update and a good sense of what is going on in our house, here are what I know you all really! I'll post one of Lilly's new big girl room soon!

Look who's been very sick...

Lilly has had a terrible virus the past two weeks and has been in the local children's hospital ever since last Monday. The virus causes painful sores to appear in her mouth and on her face...its almost like a herpes virus. She had to start a feeding tube over the weekend because she couldn't eat due to the pain that she was feeling. She has also been on Morphine. Thats powerful stuff for a two year old baby girl. Please Pray that the little bug is back to 100% VERY soon. I'll update more in a few days!

This was taken earlier today...she is feeling much better! Believe it or not, she has still managed to keep the paci in her mouth. She doesn't suck it, just props it on her tongue.

I miss the baby

Look at her...

I know that the circle of life consist of growing from a baby into a child and then a teen and then an adult. Well, Lillyana is now 2 years old. TWO! I can't believe it when I think about that. I am totally in love with the way she is right now...she is talking and having real conversation with me. But I really miss when she was this age. In this picture she was 13 months was her first football game. Look at those cheeks. Sometimes I just wish I could hold her and kiss her chubby baby cheeks again. Now she is to busy playing tea party and riding her tricycle. Just for one day I want to go back in time and see her as a little baby...parents are right when they say we grow up too fast!!
age 2...

she makes me smile =]
