Time goes by even quicker with baby #2!! I cannot believe its been 3 weeks since Anistyn joined our family. And what a COMPLETE love bug she is. She is an awesome baby. The only time she makes a peep is when she's hungry but we all do that right?!? She eats every 3 hours during day and night. She pretty much eats,sleeps,& poos ;) She loves her swing and is just starting to focus in on you and make eye contact. She grunts a lot just like her big sis did. Unlike Tynlee, she doesn't like her hands swaddled at night so I keep little mittens on her so she doesn't scratch herself. Tynlee loves her little sister and always says "Hi baby" in the cutest voice and kisses her head. She is soooo gentle with her! I am so thankful!!! This last weekend, we also bought a new(but older) family vehicle "my MOM car"....We love it and got a smokin' deal on it! It has a 3rd seat(to fit our future large family) but we had to take it out so our new double stroller can fit. I love how big it is and kinda lifted which I want to lift it more plus it's loud ;) nice exhaust and new tires. On Saturday, we took our first family outting to Ironstone Vineyards in Murphey's. I have never been and its absolutely gorgeous. So green, beautiful flowers, romantic grape vines everywhere. We ate a yummy sandwich at the little deli and all they had to drink was wine. I will post pictures soon, I only have Instagram pics for now since our computer isnt set up. I am having fun being a mommy of two. Its busy, always changing a diaper or feeding someone but I am blessed and happier than ive ever been. God has given me two beautiful girls!!!

Our little(BIG) Tynlee is 16 mon ths old today. It seems like we were just celebrating her 1st birthday. Boy - how time flys. She is starting to eat more adult food now. She eats any kind of cut of fruit, peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese, waffles, and eggs. She still eats mostly baby food which I started making myself ;) yay! it was so easy and I am dissappointed i didn't do it earlier cause we could have saved a lot of $$$. Tynlee loves the pool, to dance, the dogs, reading books, and now kissing on her baby sister. I have enjoyed watching her become a big sister. it completely melts me. nothing better than watching your children together. Tynlee drinks 3-4 milk bottles a day, sleeps all night, and loves to fall asleep at night on daddy after her bath. She has the most infectious smile and giggle. She makes the cutest "surprised" face when age hears a truck go by or a dog bark. hilarious!!! we laugh everytime. She loves when you chase her and play peek a boo!! she loves to eat my hair...haha she still uses her paci "ma ma" for naps and bedtime. as always...she is pure JOY to be around! we love you more than words can tell Tynlee Anne... :)

I was so excited of course to have the girls meet for the first time. Tynlee was sitting in her carseat when I put Anistyn in the car. She wasn't quite sure what was going on. She just starred with a concerned look on her face. She held Anistyn's carseat the whole way home. We had about a 30 minute drive and the drive home was quiet. I prayed and thanked the Lord on the way home. Thanked Him for His goodness to us and blessing us with another perfect miracle. We got home and took Anistyn out of the carseat and Tynlee was not shy to go right up to her and check her out. I tried explaining to her(yeah, I know, a one year old) that this was her sister we have been talking about for SO long! She loves her. She is sooo gentle with her. I am so thankful for that. We practiced LOTS with her baby dolls. But she is definitely great with Anistyn. I mean, I'm not going to leave her alone with her or anything but I do know she tries to be gentle and sweet. She loves to kiss her and say "Hi baby". I
can't wait to watch them play together. I know it will be in the blink of an eye. And yes, I can definitely wait. Time goes by way to quick. And Anistyn is already a week and half old. I truly am thankful that I am back to my normal health and feeling great. My blood pressure is already back to normal and I feel amazing. Everyone talks about how horrible csection recovery is by seriously, for me, both times, it's been a breeze. and I am so happy. The 2nd day is the only "hard" day for me. Trying to walk for the first time, but once I'm up, I'm up and feel great. I haven't had to take my pain meds since I've been home. My scar looks completely healed and wonderful already. Besides the little bleeding I have...I'm normal. 100%. I have lost 20 lbs so far. YAY!!!!!!! I love breastfeeding :) Back to the girls, it's been heart melting watching Tynlee interact with her sister. Bringing her toys and talking to her in her sweet innocent little voice. They are the best thing that's ever happened to us. I love having two girls...Let the matching outfits and big bows BEGIN!! :)
