My girls

Macy has been so happy and funny lately. The other day I told her to hold her horses because she kept bothering me about something. She responded, "I can't hold horses because I don't have any horses mom."

Anna was in bed with Macy one day. Macy walked out of her room and shut the door. She said Anna was asleep. I didn't believe Macy so I checked on Anna. I found her nicely tucked into bed. I love that Macy even put her doll with Anna.

Macy was so cute at the grocery store. She wanted to bring her stroller along. People would see her and say, "Oh, how cute!" Then they would notice her stroller and say, "Oh, how cute!" Then they noticed her boots and said "Oh, how cute!" I love that my girls make people smile every where we go.

Anna is such a happy baby! And she already talks up a storm. I can't get a really good video of it because she stops talking when she sees the camera. The camera is so interesting to stare at I guess.

Macy tried my sunglasses on today and got them to stay on. She was pretty excited.

Macy asks why A LOT. I'll answer and she will continue asking why until she gets an answer that suits her. Sometimes she doesn't like my answers so I have to say "Macy sometimes I just don't know." When I say that she knows to stop asking. Yesterday she used that line on me. I love hearing her copy our phrases. Ja taught her "Come on, man!"

Both my girls are adorable and perfect! I love them very much.

Carving Pumpkins in November

Who says you have to carve pumpkins before Halloween?! Not us.

We never got around to it but Ja wanted to carve them with Macy so we did it on November 1st. It actually worked out great because we were able to use them at our ward Trunk or Treat party which was on November 3rd due to Frankenstorm. Halloween was a 2 week celebration at our house because we went to so many parties.

Ewww! Yucky!

Watching Macy Sleep

We got a video baby monitor when Anna was born. We have yet to use it for Anna because she is either in the same room as us and doesn't move around yet. However, we have greatly enjoyed watching Macy "sleep" on the monitor.

I put her to bed at 8 p.m. and I used to think she went right to sleep. Now that we can see her I know she may not go to sleep until 9:30 or 10 some nights. I find her reading books to herself in her bed. Sometimes she walks around to pick up more books. Or she'll sit up in bed to read. I think this is so cute and it's great she can do this and not need me to put her to sleep. Macy makes me proud.

The rest of these pictures are the funny positions I find her sleeping.

At the foot of the bed with leg hanging out of the bed

 This time she's hugging the railing

She loves to hang her foot off the bed

I love watching her get herself ready to sleep after she's been reading. She lies down finding the right spot on the bed. She then covers herself with her blankets and finds the right spot on her pillow to place her head. Her milk cups have to be in the exact right position too. Sometimes I think she's sleeping because she is still. Then if I look close enough I can see her shiny eyeballs blink. The camera is like night vision so her pupils glow like a cat.

I always seem to miss Macy the most when she is sleeping so now I can watch her and see how cute she is all night long! It will get even more fun once Anna and Macy sleep in the same room.
