Nov. 2014 Photos

Hi Blog world, remember me?

We took some professional pictures in November for the first time ever, to have some fun family photos  and because Layne just turned 2!
Here's a few photos from the mini session we did with a photographer I found on Facebook.  Turned out she knew some friends of mine!  Small world. :)

My little Layner Bee is a pro, I tell ya.

Layne's First Ballet Class

I have been slacking and i think I failed on the weekly photos.  I got pretty far though!  A lot has been going on- and I'll update that soon. But I should mention, I need to change the name of this blog!  We moved!
We moved about 20 min out of the city into a town called Brookfield.  Home of the local Zoo. Come visit! BURBS!
More on that later.... with pictures and details.

For now- Layne took her first Ballet class!  It was a free first time class (we didn't join because we knew we were moving at the time).

Here are some photos our friend and Sophie's mom Heidi took.

4 out of 6 girls from my moms group (the other 2 were out of town)  L- R  Sophie, Ayla, Lola and Layne (with food in her mouth.   But i LOVE this picture so much!  

My sweet little ballerina. 

This is a framer

More soon!

July was busy!  I forgot about this here bloggy blog.  So I'm catching up!  Hopefully I'm on track with the weeks... 

We went to Lincoln park zoo 

We went back to Michigan with my moms group and Laynie enjoyed the pool the most I think. ;) 

We went to south padre island with my entire family... Post to come separately on this.  We had a blast!

Laynie had a lot of fun this 4th of July, while momma and dadee were at a super fun wedding!  
She even got her toe nails painted..  And she keeps saying... "Mama.  Toes. Pretty"

Miss independent can walk up the stairs and go down the slides all by herself! I'm sure she could have done this sooner, but mama was too scared to let her go alone..  Now, she's all..."mama, slide!"

I am lucky to have a moms group. A group of first time moms and we met when our girl were 3-5 months old.  
We meet every Wednesday and this week it was finally nice enough to have a baby pool party!  

Thank goodness for these gals and their sweet babes.

This past weekend, we got to see our dear friends Adair, noe' and Wally in town from LA for Mary's wedding.  After the wedding weekend in Michigan (blog post still to come) they came over to our house for a play date.  It was so nice to relax and have the kiddos play.  (Even though layne pulled Wally's hair). Terrible 18 months I tell ya! 
We can't wait for them to move to Indiana next month so this can happen more often.  
Love you guys!!
