2.5 year old twins

*Yes, we officially have 2 1/2 year old babies...errr- toddlers- errr- big sisters!! 

Dallas Arboretum 

Yup- we can't believe it either! I have LOVED every age, every new stage of development, every ounce of being a Momma to these two, precious, girls. They have proven that each stage and month has grown to be the best. I have loved every bit of every day with these two precious girls! 

I wanted to document a few things/memories of life with 2 1/2 year olds! Enjoy a few pictures along the way. 

*New cars seats= Hadley LOVES to "I do it!" buckle herself in. Layton... naaa. Go for it mom.

*Walks to the park- They both jump in the stroller to walk to the park. But, heading home. Layton, "I walk, ooo-kay, Momma?!" As Hadley hops in the stroller for the ride home. 
 RoughRiders Baseball Game 

*Speaking of park--  The park a few houses down, the one we frequent, isn't just called "The Park". Nope.. It's referred too as "The Higher Park". Why? Because it has swings and of course, the girls scream, "Hiyyyyuur, Hiyyyyur!" It's a cute name for a park, and I love hearing them ask to go! 

*Flip flops are called- "slip sops" by Layton.

*ABC's are sung and counting to 10 is fun! The girls love to draw, color and paint!  
backyard fun!

*Hadley loves to dress herself. Layton takes whatever you give her. But, if it comes to a tutu- Layton is all about it! She wears them to sleep most days. 
Playing with rocks at LaLa and Popas

*Mickey Mouse (Minnie is favored) & Bubble Guppies two of their favorite shows. 

"Pancakes with syrup" are requested for breakfast EVERY night after our night-night song. 

*Nightly routine- yes! Every night goes like such-- bath time, a Bubble Guppies show/upstairs play, prayers and then our 'I love you so much' song. 

*The girls are talking... TALKING! Full sentences! 

*Playing outside is a blast! They love to play in the backyard. They are asking for the swimming pool daily!

*Potty training will start soon! They are still not interested in the potty- but, we will work on that in the warmer weather! I'm in no rush, can you tell?  (outside accidents are better than inside, right?)

*The girls HATE bugs. Yet, love roley poleys!

*"Ally Ann, time to eat?" is said at every quiver or sound that little sister makes. 
Stay little, sweet little one!

*"want Mommy's milk, Awwweee Ann??" Is repeated daily. 

*Speaking of Mommy's milk- the girls go to preschool twice a week and this story was told to me yesterday from their preschool teacher..... 

When I picked up the girls from school on Wednesday, the teachers were giggling and told me that they twins were "feeding" their babies milk before "night, night". I responded to their teachers by saying, "Yes- yes, they do LOVE to play with their baby dolls." Wait for it.. wait for it....  They then said that both of the girls were lifting up their shirts and 'feeding' their babies.  The teacher said that they tried not to giggle because she didn't want to embarrass the girls. {thanks, so thoughtful :)} They explained that the boys didn't need to see underneath their shirts. 

We had a fun talk on the way home.

Big sisters with their little sister!

Life with 2 1/2 year olds is wonderful!!! 
Add a 2 month old in there and it makes life 
pretty perfect!
