BIG... girls just continue to get so BIG! I am constantly amazed at how quickly they change. It is so fun to watch them grow but sometimes I wish I could stop time and just stay in the sweet moments forever!
Harper Update:
- She is smiling now! She has the sweetest little smile. She gives me the biggest smiles in the morning...Such a reward after sharing some long nights with me!
- She is cooing! I love it! She really gets to talking to Daddy...he has that effect on girls! :)
- She is not sleeping the best but starting to do better. She has given me a couple 5 hour stretches but usually she is up every 3-4 hours to nurse.
- She is a great eater. I don't think she is quite as chunky as Hallie was but she is filling out nicely. I love it!
- She is just SWEET...I can't quite put my finger on this but she just has such a sweet disposition. She isn't always easy...BUT she is always SWEET!

Hallie Update:
- I was saying her prayers with her last night and after I was finished she said, "Thank you Jesus- Help me poo poo." It was so sweet. Jon and Hallie have been praying every night that Jesus would help her go poo poo and she finally did it the night before! I was reminded of the importance of bringing Jesus into all circumstances!
- She loves carrying her little New Testament Bible around the house!
- She is a major Daddy's girl right now! (However if Mimis are around-she is attached at the hip)
- She still loves to snuggle in the mornings!
- She is so attached to her binki that we are still having a hard time taking it away...I know- It needs to go!
- She is VERY protective and possessive of Harper. And she loves to hold her too!
- She still loves ELMO but really LOVES watching Lady and the Tramp right now!
- She is easy to discipline because she is a pleaser. She likes making us happy!

Both of the girls are a lot of fun right now! I am so thankful for our family! I have had several stressful moments with two but it is so worth it!
I love you girls! I can't wait for all of our memories together!

Some randoms!!

More photos from our trip!

Weekend get-a-way!

We had a great weekend visiting our friends Josh and Angie in Minnesota!! It was so relaxing for me(Angie is so good with the girls...I seriously had sooo much help...I wish she lived in Iowa!)! It was so great to spend time with them reminiscing and catching up! Hallie's highlight was their Boxer, Kobe. He was so great with her and she just loved him up! They are such good friends! We are praying that God blesses them with another little Nixon baby soon! Thanks Josh and Ang for a great weekend! Check out Angie's blog by clicking "I will praise you in this storm" on the side of my blog! Sorry I am not high tech- I need her to teach me how to make her name the link!

Two Year Doctor Appt!

I just love Well-Child visits! They are so much fun! I love to see how big my babies are getting! We had Hallie's 2 year old visit on the 8th. are her stats:
Height: 34.75 inches (75th percentile)
Weight: 28.4 lbs (75th percentile)
Head: 19.5 inches (90th percentile)

She did such a good job at the appointment. She was a little shy at first but then was dancing around the room and playing while Dr.WW and I talked. She also was fascinated when they poked her finger to collect blood to check her lead levels. She only cried when they put the band aid on...imagine that...the part that doesn't hurt! The doctor was also thrilled to see that she had on big girl panties! Hallie liked the attention she got for that! All is well with Miss Hallie Kate-she loves being 2!

We took these pictures one afternoon at my parents house! I thought they turned out great!

People at the Party!

We kept it simple...we invited immediately family and Great Grandparents! We also invited Jon's Aunt and Uncle from Ohio...they were in town for Don's birthday! It was so nice to see them! Jim and the boys also came! We can't forget Hallie's favorite person too...Grant!
