my babies

As promised, here's the video of Adalei's military crawling skills. Over the past week, she's started pushing up on all fours, rocking back and forth...and then falling--but she's getting very close to really crawling! She is also getting two new teeth, which brings her total to FOUR.

She has a really yucky cold right now...she's doing just like Layla did with cutting teeth. Poor baby! When I went into her room this morning, her little nose was stuck to the sheet and snot had sealed both nostrils shut--except for a tiny little hole where she was getting the smallest amount of air in. She peeled her nose off the sheet and looked up at heart broke for her...she just smiled at me...ear to ear grin and started reaching for my face to give me her morning kiss. She defines happy in every circumstance. That little one is incredible!

Oh my goodness, that girl is as sweet as ever...challenging sometimes as we make our way through some awkward stages--but we are learning. We've had some really good moments and some not so pretty moments over the past few weeks. But she has the sweetest and most compassionate little heart--even during a toddler meltdowns.

Here's a short little video of her. She has these crazy big headphones. She decorated them with Hello Kitty stickers--because without the stickers, she insisted they were boy colors. Let me just say...she sometimes wears these headphones on grocery shopping trips. Yes. I am serious. She's funny....she definitely doesn't take herself too seriously! I think her daddy turns the music up too loud...but she says she likes it loud so she can sing. And, sing she does. Enjoy her rendition of Everything Glorious.

They are both so sweet...I love the military crawl...she is quite effecient at getting where she needs to go using that crawl (like, the camera, for example).

And...sweet Layla's singing is adorable!! She's in her own "glorious" world! :) What a great place to be!

I REALLY want to see these sweet babies in person VERY SOON!

1st of all, Adalei...I could eat her with a spoon. SO.SWEET. I love her little self and her cubbiness. Ella's gonna catch her though, I think.

So, so sweet! I miss the little darlings already ... sure enjoyed waking up every morning at the beach to their smiling faces. God is so good and has richly blessed our family! Praise God for who He is and what He does ... and what He plans to do. Amen, Amen!
