Oh my little girl is growing up too quickly!

She has gone from this just minutes after birth. . .

to this two days ago. . .

A very fast 5 1/2 months! She is just a delight to have around. She is so observant and happy. She also has good motor skills. I have to be careful what I'm holding when she is in my arms because she will grab it quick as lightening. As stated before, she is NOT camera shy like her brother. Rather she hams it up pretty good which makes taking pictures so much fun with her!

She is sitting in Cole's Buzz & Woody chair which his Grandpa and Grandma Poling gave to him along with some other Toy Story goodies. They visited last week and saw first hand just how much this guy is in love with Toy Story! It was so much fun to have them here. Lyla loved them both and even our shy Cole remembered his grandparents. Here's Lyla with her Grandma.

Cole has asked for his grandparents everyday since they left last Thursday. So I've been distracting him and have taken him out of the house to playscapes at McDonald's and Chik-fil-a to keep things interesting (and to avoid the midday heat).

We will go to the park in the evenings after 7pm when it isn't so hot. Lyla has enjoyed our little trips there as well.

Lyla enjoys her swinging and her Jumparoo - Cole likes to combine the two in one for her. As soon as I put the Jumparoo up he asked if he could swing in it. He settled for swinging her in it.

Yesterday I was in the kitchen cleaning or something when I looked at Cole in the living room. He had the spray bottle of water and was tapping it on the couch and then wiping a cloth over it. He did each cushion and then moved on to the ottoman. . . just like he saw mommy do when I cleaned the leather on the couches a couple of weeks ago. It was ADORABLE. Thankfully, caught on film! (He eventually moved on the the end tables and entertainment unit and dusted them too.)

Oh, and here's another pic of Miss dumpling, just for kicks.
