Little Ballerina

Recently, Annabeth has discovered Angelina Ballerina. She loves to turn on her music and twirl around the house in circles nonstop. I finally gave in and enrolled her in a ballet class at a local rec. center. The class only lasted 6 weeks but she had tons of fun doing it. She was the youngest and smallest but she really did try her best to keep up with the other girls. Albeit, she did spend a lot of time stealing glances of herself in the mirrors and hanging on the bars. The video below is of their "Kitten Dance." So cute!

Lazy Mornings

Love waking up in the mornings to these two. Camilla usually ends up in our bed after her 2nd feeding (Brent has told me that this has to stop, but I can't resist). Annabeth usually comes in around 7. I wake up to her talking to Camilla. Sweetest thing ever. I hope they will always stay close as I am with my sisters.

Family Resemblance

Lately, I've been looking through Annabeth's baby pictures. I can't believe she was ever so tiny! The biggest difference I notice between her and Camilla is the nose. Annabeth has always had this little upturned nose (looks like Cindy-Lou-Who) while Camilla's is a little flatter. Also, Camilla has much chubbier cheeks (I just wanna bite them...and sometimes I do) Both were born with tons of hair, and not just on their heads. Their little backs were covered in black hair. In case you are wondering, they get that from Brent - not me. The top picture is Camilla and the bottom is Annabeth around the same age. Love those first smiles!

Camilla's Blessing Weekend

This weekend, we were able to see all of Brent's family and almost all of mine (we missed you Mandy and Andrew!). I still can't believe we fit all these people in our tiny house to take these pictures! We went swimming on Saturday with the kids while Brent and Scott played golf with their dad. Then went to Gatti Town where we ate lots of pizza and let the kids play some games.
On Sunday, Camilla received her blessing from her Daddy. I loved being able to hear him bless her with so many wonderful things to look forward to in her life. I think it is one of the sweetest traditions of our faith for a baby to be encircled by her dad, grandpas and uncles. She looked so adorable in her white dress and didn't make a peep during the blessing. Looking at Camilla wearing the same little dress that Annabeth wore for her blessing made me realize how fast time flies and how much she has grown in such a short time. This time with them now is so precious and there isn't anything else in the world I'd rather be doing. I love my babies more than anything. Sometimes I think they are going to drive me crazy, ezpecially Annabeth. But when I lose my temper with her, she is always so quick to forgive and forget. They are little pieces of heaven and I think a great example to me of how our Savior loves us unconditionally. I feel grateful every day that He has entrustred them to us. Family is the best!
