Throwback Thursday

So I have been going through old pictures and putting them into photo books. I thought it would be fun to post some of these old pictures here for memories sake :)

Baby Esther around 7 months old. Who is this child? haha

My pregnancy test with Esther. (Old phone pic)

 Back when I used to ask Leland to send me selfies when we were dating long distance haha. (I really need the cry/laugh emoji right now!)

 My pregnancy test with Adele. Some peeps probably think this is gross but at least I don't save the actual peed on test. 

 A few pics of me and E from last summer. Also hopefully I will be that skinny again soon lol

One of my last pregnancy pics with Adele. 

Newborn Adele and Loki. What happened to that tiny baby. This was only 5 months ago!

Awww Give me all the newborns!!!!!

3 Day Weekend

 Last weekend Leland had Monday off for Pioneer Day. We decided at the last minute to take a trip down to my parents house. They are moving soon so we decided to go play at their house and pool one last time. Esther had a blast like she always does. Adele had fun rolling around and exploring a new place too. We didn't venture out much since it was over 105 degrees every day we were there. It was fun to play outside and relax though. Both girls did way better with sleeping there this time too so that was a relief.

Swimming with Dada and Ruby

Play hard, Nap hard

I love how you can see the reflection in the window of me and Leland trying to get them to look and smile haha. 

The last night we were there we had a "glow night" and put glow sticks in the pool, ate smore's and played 20 questions in the hot tub, Esther was loving it and the only way we could get her to come in was to promise she could sleep with all the glow sticks lol. Adele also loved splashing in the hot tub. 

Esther is trying to lick the water lol

That flash gets you every time haha

Grandma spoiled Esther with popsicles and Adele with her first taste of watermelon.

Two Little Girls

So I have always thought Adele and Esther look a lot alike but lately it seems like Adele is really developing her own look. I was looking through old pictures and decided to do some side by sides to see how these two girls compare. Also while looking through old pictures I realized that our apartment now has the worst lighting of all we've lived at and that makes me sad because the pictures do not turn out as well. Oh well. Onward.

To start us off here are both girls at 2 months old. I don't think they look very much alike here. (Esther left, Adele right)

Here we have their profiles. Esther is 6 months old in this and Adele is just shy of 6 months. I think they look super similar here. I love these baby profiles so much! (Adele left, Esther right)

Next we have the chub comparison while they both sit in the high chair at 5 months. Adele is the clear winner here. 

The scowl comparison: 

So do these girls look alike? Yay or nay? 

I think they have similarities but Adele seems to have darker features than Esther did at this age so maybe they'll stick. Also this post made me miss baby Esther, It's so crazy to see her so tiny and hardly remember what she was like at that age ( I blame sleep deprivation). 

A Picnic at the Farm

Thursday night we had a little improptu picnic at Wheeler Farm. I love living so close to this beautiful park. It is Esther's favorite place to go. It is always so peaceful and beautiful there. Lately there have been a lot of people taking professional photos there. So I tried to take some cute photos of my own of the girls. Maybe some day I'll have a fancy DSLR camera, but for now I think these turned out pretty good :)

Adele is so funny. She doesn't crawl yet, but she does scoot/roll everywhere! I swear she can get anywhere she wants to go just by rolling haha. She loves to escape any blanket I try to put her on. 

The joy of finding a goose feather!

Summertime Pictures

We've been having a lot of fun this summer. Here are some pictures I've taken of the last few weeks. 

Adele fell asleep at the pool yesterday. This little babe is so good at falling asleep on the go. I love it!

Esther too busy for pictures, I took her down the slide in the background on my lap, she was a little scared but loved it. Leland took her down too and they went under at the end. She did not love that lol. 

Little chubster always has her belly hanging out :)

From today before church. Adele in all her glory. 

Esther now thinks every picture is like snapchat and that she must stick out her tongue. 


We are borrowing this Tula carrier from our local Babywearing International group. We all love it!

How Adele sleeps all night long. I love her lips and cheeks in this picture. 

Esther is obsessed with climbing trees now after this picture. 

Beautiful Adele

From a few weeks ago at Wheeler Farm 

This picture perfectly captures what I want my children's summer to be like.
