A Day in the Life of Laynie

I start every morning with a quick workout at the gym.

Then it's off to hair and make-up

How does this color look with my eyes?

And you're sure this doesn't make my butt look big?

Then I chat with my favorite "peeps." (Thanks Gav for holding the phone while I talk to Grandma Ardy!)

Then I spend a little time relaxing in the lap of luxury.

What can I say? It's hard to be me.

Daisy Dukes

Cute little baby legs! Amazing that with all that pudge she can have such teeny, tiny ankles!

The little "booty."

How come knee fat gets ugly when you get older?

Chip Shot

Dip the chip in the "sauce." Make sure it is completely covered.

Open wide!

Stuff it in.

And repeat.

Hey Grandma Ardy! Gavin totally takes after you. According to Jamie, Gavin ate an ENTIRE bowl of salsa at Pappasitos all by himself. I know our "Mexican Food" lover would appreciate that!

Fireman Calendar

If you've ever seen one of those "Hot Fireman" calendars, you'll get a kick out of these pictures!

Talk about a great body! And check out those blue eyes!

I had some other shots, but it was hard tell if he actually had anything on. I don't usually let him run around the house naked. These pictures were taken right after bathtime.

And here is one of Laynie, just because she's cute!

The Talkies

Sorry for the poor videography...this is what my Uncle Paul would refer to as diarrhea of the mouth.

Perfecting the Piggytail

Call me OCD, but I hate crooked parts. I want all of Laynie's parts to be perfectly straight when I piggytail her hair. But it's SO hard! She has the WORST cowlick in the world. Her hair just wants to stand up straight no matter what I do. So, I've had to sacrifice one not-so-straight part to manage the cowlick. Either way she's still super cute. She actually has real hair elastics in her hair today. How many three-month-old babies have enough hair to do that?

Laynie wore her "monkeyskins" for the first time this week. Love it!

Here's a great shot of her hair if I don't do anything with it. Pretty huh...

Look What I Found!

Bad habits start early. Gavin's been addicted to sucking his two middle fingers (what I affectionately refer to as the "Longhorn Suck") since he was about four months old. Now Laynie is starting on her thumb...great.

Head to Head

Laynie has been rolling over for about three weeks now. It's still sort of slow motion roll, and she doesn't like tummy time at all. So, I've given Gavin the job of entertaining her while she "practices." The whole time she's on her tummy he yells, "Come on Laynie, Laynie! Roll over!" We should have given the kid a dog instead of a little sister.

Story Time

Gavin and I have spent the last few weeks learning to identify all the alphabet letters and have started with basic words (i.e stop, go, and). But now he thinks he can "read" and tries to read stories to everyone. It's actually a lot of fun to hear him tell the stories that he knows really well! Some he can even repeat word for word.

He enjoys it...

But I'm not so sure Laynie does.
