Charles and Clyde are Sydney's "guys". That was the easiest thing for her to try and say when we were visiting, and it has stuck. We love those guys so much. They are little angel miracle boys. We CAN'T wait to see them again soon.
p.s. these pictures hurt my eyes to look at. I think I've finally learned my lesson. Phone pics just STINK. I apologize if your eyes hurt after looking at these.
We made quite the scene on our 2 hour lay-over.
This pic documents the first and only outing with the boys when we were there. They did amazingly well, as did MM. Here is a video to prove it.
loving the no car seat thing.
We love those four so much. It was such a great trip.
These are completely random and blurry pictures from the past few months. I have got to get my act together on picture taking with a real camera. You can hardly make out who we are in the pictures. But I keep telling myself, these are better than nothing.
Karaoke Party- Christian was just LOVING the lime light.
Christian and I raced home from our v-day date to catch these two love birds before the babysitters put them to bed. We took them out for a late night sugar cookie run at sweet tooth fairy.
The title of this post says way too much. It says, "yep, Courtney, you gave in. You did exactly what you said you weren't going to do when you found out you were pregnant." - " I will never let my child's birthday get overlooked because it is right around Christmas!!! NEVER!" But I did. We ate cake. Thats what we did. I was going to have a birthday party, but I thought "Who honestly wants to come to ANOTHER party 2 seconds after Christmas?? NO ONE. so opted out. And did I get good pics of her bday? NOPE. Didn't do that either. I don't even have one pic of my daughter wearing a birthday hat that says "1". Wait, correction, I didn't even HAVE a 1 year old birthday hat, nor did I take a pic of her wearing it. Wow, I'm starting to be sad about this a little bit. BUT you know what?? OH WELL. She is happy, and we're happy, and thats all that matters. But I am promising to myself, that next year, and every year after that- she will have great birthdays and she will know that the day she came to our lives was the greatest day we've ever known.
The Jensen's (my SIL's family) were nice enough to invite us for Christmas Eve dinner.
We really had a great Christmas season, but not too many pictures to prove it. Why do I stink so much at taking pictures??? Maybe I'll make that my new year's resolution next year!
