She loves hats! Reminds me when I was little!

Life From a Little One's Perspective!

Putting Aty to bed and she starts playing with my ear. {Side note: She loves ears! Not sure what her attraction to them is, but when Bria was born she would just sit and stroke her ears. Weird, I know, but Bria's ears are very soft.} Anyway, she says, "Mommy, is your ear an octagon?" "No, I hope not." My silly girl!

Aty got on her little bike then tells me, "Mommy, I going bye bye. I need hug." I give her a hug. She then says, "I need kiss." I give her a kiss. Then she says, "give me high five! "

We wake up and it's an overcast day. Aty says, "Mommy it's going to rain today."

Atalisa picking up her toys on the floor says, "Go Aty, Go Aty!"

We were driving to my sister's and Atalisa was getting sleepy, as she's drifting off and her eyes are closing she says, "choco-late, chocooolate." Then is fast asleep! She loves her chocolate!

Atalisa took the whisk attachment from my kitchen aid and started strumming it like it was a guitar! Think we have a musician on our hands! She loves music!!

Having devotions with Atalisa one morning. I started telling her the story of the Children of Israel crossing the Red Sea, and attempted to draw her a picture of the story. I told her, "all the people came to the water and it was too deep for them to cross, and the bad men of Pharoah's army were chasing them." She says, "they could swim?!" It always amazes me how much they understand, and motives me to be faithful in having devotions with them!

10 Months Old!

 Where did the time go?!? Can't believe our Bria Mae is 10 months old already!  I seems like not long ago she made her fast entrance into this world! If you haven't read her birth story you can read it here.

There seems like there isn't much we can't do these days! We have been walking since a little before 9 months and lately have been trying to run! Gotta keep up with big sis! 

 Thankfully she has always been a good sleeper! Much better than her older sis who still sometimes ends up walking up in the early mornings and crawling into bed with us. Though both girls are very affectionate, Atalisa definitely is our cuddle bear! Bria's latest has been to sleep 13 hours! The first time she started this I went in her room to check and make sure she was still alive, and of course found her still sweetly sleeping!

Rocking herself back and forth, and quite proud of it!

 Love dressing my girlies in RUFFLES especially when they are PINK! 

 Love these sweet blue eyes!

We now have four teeth! That all broke though at the same time in the past couple weeks! Two bottom teeth, and the top left two. The other top two are about to pop though anytime now! 

A little disappointed in the taste of leaves! We try to eat everything! She pretty much eats everything that we eat now, and is a hearty eater! Some of her favorites are: Whole wheat pancakes, chicken and brown rice, grapes, and sweet potatoes.  She does a good job feeding herself, and will hold a spoon and try to put the food on it with her hand! But usually ends up just eating with her hands. :)

We say "dada", and "mama", and try a few other words here and there. 

Enjoying every day God gives us with our precious girls! Time is short! Reminded constantly to make the most of this phase of life because before I know it they will be grown up!
