First Day of Ballet

So Lilly has started Ballet with Miss Penny.  She has been to two classes and absolutely loves it!  Both days the girl would not take a nap.  She came out of her room every 15 mins saying it was time to go to Ballet.  There are 6 little girls in her class.  Her friend Katherine is in the class and she mainly watches her instead of the teacher.  Her favorite thing to do is run around the room with a scarf the teacher lets them pick out.  She got a zebra print scarf the first time.

One thing I was not prepared for was how much I would love watching her in her class.   It brings back so many memories of dancing when I was a little girl.  We are going to enjoy our time of dance each week. 

It has been a Very Long Time.....

There probably isn't anyone who checks this blog anymore.  I haven't posted in 3 months.  We have been busy girls.  

I am busy running after "Both" of my little sweeties.  Sophia started walking on Christmas Day and has not slowed down.  She is into everything.  She also likes to run away from us when she has something in her mouth she knows she shouldn't or she has something she knows she shouldn't.  

Here are a couple of 
pictures of the past few months.  As I am posting this I realize I did not get a picture of the girls in their cute Christmas Dresses or even one where either of them look like I brushed their hair!  Oh, well.

 My Christmas Cowgirls.  We all three got cowboy boots this year.

 The girls are starting to play together, at times.  Lilly doesn't want Sophia in her things or touching her babies, but she does allow her to come into her room for a short amount of time or if Mom makes her!  I look forward to when they play together and have lots of fun.

 Sophia is just as friendly as Lilly, which I really didn't think that could happen.  I love how my girls just love people.  They light up when we are out and about.  Sophia likes to say "HI" to people that pass us by.  She only says a few words, but she is so sweet.

 I love this picture of Lilly.  Her hair is so crazy and this is what I deal with all the time.  We can not get the static out of it in the winter and no matter how many bows, braids or pony tails we try it ends up looking like this!  I know Lilly is going to look back and wonder if I even bathed my children.

 Christmas 2008

Lilly and Sophia are wearing the same outfit in these pictures.  Can you tell how much they look alike?  Sophia has a little more hair and it is darker then Lilly's.  But they do have a lot of Roush in them.

I just ran a 5K!

Okay many of you probably laughed when you read my title if you have known me for very long. I have never been known for my athletic ability, okay what am I kidding, no one on this green earth has actually seen me in action besides getting up and down out of a chair.  Well, there was that time in High School that I actually decided to be on a Kids Inc. Basketball team as a Junior in High School.  I am pretty sure I feel down in the middle of the court and no one was even around me.  I also didn't even have a ball in my hand.  That's the kind of athletic ability I am talking about.

But.....I have emerged a new woman in 2010. 
I have been working out since June and it has been a lot of fun.  We do a little running and I decided to run in our communities downtown 5K.  My goal was to just finish without stopping.  I ran it in 30 min's.  I really enjoyed the feeling and hope to continue running.  I wish I would have started this so long ago, but I always thought I couldn't do it.  Funny thing has happened since the birth of my children.  It has given me motivation and a confidence to try new things that I didn't have before.  

I am thankful for the blessings God has given me with these two little bundles of joy. 
Many of them unexpected.

Here we are after the 5K.  The girls did great hanging out with their Nana while I ran the race.  

 This is Mary my Boot Camp instructor.
I work out with her 3 days a week.

This is before the race.  The weather was fabulous.  What a fun morning in our fun little town.

Grand Lake

We recently went to Grand Lake with my sister Devan and her boyfriend Matt.  What a relaxing and fun getaway.  The girls loved riding in the boat and we stayed at a fabulous cottage.  
Thanks Matt and Devan for inviting us!

Mothers Day Out

Lilly had her first day of Mother's Day Out last week. She had a great time.  Just thought I would share!

What's Up with Lilly?

Lilly is always up for a good time!  She is my social butterfly, loves friends, and loves to go go go.  She is sweet and kind with lots of love for anyone she sees.  She has had a great summer getting to spend time with her friends above.  She is making faces with Daxxon, loving on her cousin Noah and haning out with her good friend Piper. 

We have a small little water spray park in our town, but it only sprays one hour a day?  Kind of crazy, so we have only done it once.  She loves to "hangout" with her Daddy.  She recently farmed with him for an evening and a morning while Sophia and I went to a Women's Conference.  She loves getting to ride the tractor and see the cows.  Rusty says she is a really good girl with him. 

Thank you Rusty, for being such a fun Daddy and for letting her "work" with you!

She loves for you to tell her stories and always wants to either watch a movie or read a book.  She is a very good Mommy to her babies.  Their names are Renna, Reagan, and Molly after my friends girls.  I am the Grandma and She is Mendy a lot of times.  What a joy to see your daughter actually pretending.  So sweet. 

I just love this girl!  I am having a lot of fun being her Mommy.

Sopha Bia is 6 months

Sophia is getting so big!  This is what she usually looks like...smiling and so happy.  She loves to play with this new toy because for about two weeks she has been sitting up.  She loves her big sister and is just a sweet little joy. We like to call her Sophia Bia around here.  And I actually seem to call her that a lot.  Do you think she might look a little like her Daddy?

She is famous for doing sit ups all ready.  It is the funniest thing ever.  If she doesn't want to lay on the ground, she just starts pulling herself up like a sit up.  She is going to have the strongest tummy muscles.

We just started food a week ago.  She has eaten carrots, butternut squash, bananas, and rice cereal.  She doesn't eat much yet, but I can tell she is liking it more and more.  Lilly would love to feed her, but Mom doesn't allow that!  I am also attempting to get this child to sleep through the night.  I will say Sophia is much more spoiled then Lilly when it comes to sleep.  I have let the girl cry it out, but to no avail she still doesn't sleep through the night.  Actually my breastfeeding book said that she may not, but this Mom is TIRED.  I mean I thought it was bad that Lilly didn't sleep through until 4 months.  That was wonderful!  Oh, well....what is one year of your life without a full 8 hours?  I have actually been able to breastfeed Sophia much longer then Lilly.  This is a very exciting thing for me.  Breastfeeding Lilly was the hardest thing in my life and to be honest a little disappointing that it didn't work well for me.  So, it has been a blessing for it to be going well now.

Well, we sure are enjoying our two girls.  I will post an update on Lilly soon.  Have a great weekend!
