Here is Finley in a classic sulk. These happen pretty much daily. She's really good at acting dejected, and she will definitely show you her disappointment.
So things have been flying by these past few months. Seriously! It's cliche because it's true. We are quickly approaching Finley's third (THIRD!!!) and Reagan's first (FIRST!!!) birthdays. We are all full of distinct personalities around these parts. Finley is still as sassy and independent as ever, Reagan is still a mama's girl who loves to be held. And a few other crazy milestones... I turned 30 last week! WHAT!? I know. I know. And also we have lived in Birmingham for almost a year now. This year has flown by. The first few months were rough, but since last August things have just been a blur. Here's to 5 more blurry years!
Finley and Reagan are becoming better friends. Mostly because Reagan is very forgiving of strangulation and blunt head trauma. She usually gets her just deserts because she's a very good slapper. Even though it appears here that she really doesn't do much damage. Yet.
This is Finley with her friend James hugging their baby siblings. Want to get a two-year-old to defend their brother/sister's personal space? Have another two-year-old try to interact with them. Suddenly they become fiercely possessive and loving, "THAT"S MY SISTER!"
One of Finley's favorite pastimes if collecting flowers (don't tell her this is a weed). It often makes walking outdoors very sloooow.
We take advantage of sunny Saturdays with Dad. They don't happen too often.
One of Reagan's besties is her giraffe Sophie, or as Finley calls it, Soapie.
And this is our snuggle monster. It's so strange having a snuggly child. She'll sit on my lap completely content. As soon as Finley was able to move on her own she spent most of her day trying to get away from me as quickly as possible. Even though Reagan is totally mobile most of her day is spent following me around the house. Poor thing. But she's building up some tough knees!
