New Year Changes
We're finally settling into life, with me back to work and the girls in full time daycare.  It's been a tough transition, after a wonderful 4 months at home together.  I'm so thankful that we were able to have such a long time together!  Thank you for your prayers.  Although it's not an ideal situation, we're finally finding some normalcy in our schedule.  Mya is starting to write her letters, has new friends and has finally begun to feel more comfortable at her "new school." Kylie needed only a couple of days to adjust, she's such an easy-going baby, she's doing great- eating and sleeping like a champ!  She's been sleeping thru the night since 2 days prior to Christmas, a Mommy's dream!

Two days after Kylie's 5 month birthday, we decided to start her on solid foods.  We were both dragging our feet a bit, we don't want this one to grow up as quickly, as if we have the choice!  Needless to say, there was no hesitation to eating, she loves food!   Squash rocked!  Mya jumped at the chance to help feed her, it's all so fun.  Crazy how fast it's all going- contrary to my wish to keep our last baby a baby.

We also finally invested in our first flat screen TV this week.  Just in time for the superbowl, Rob is pretty stoaked to have the addition to our home.  This has been something he's dreamed of purchasing for a long time!  My dreams will be answered in a few months, as we've just ordered new furniture for our living room- I can't wait!  Since we've had our existing couches for 12 years, it's time for an update.  Needless to say, it's been harder to wait than I expected!  We're getting ready for the changes, and will be doing some painting and a few other adjustments to make our "loft" space a useable space, since it's been pretty dysfunctional. Othewise, our time seems to be spent attending baby showers and kids birthday parties. Mya was recently invited to a dance class birthday party.  She had a great time- see the picture below.
