Trying to Update...

There are SOOO many posts I have wanted to do, but believe it or not, I just have not had the time. Please bear with me as I try to get them written/published (many are started as drafts, but not published) I realize they will be out of order, but I am going to try to fix that when I get caught up (I hope!)

Westrick Pictures

For my parents' Christmas present this year, my siblings and I decided it would be nice to have a photographer take a few pictures of our new expanded family. We thought it would look nice to all wear clothes in the browns, creams, and orange colors and I just LOVE how they turned out! (I apologize for the small sizes, I am unsure how to change that)

You know you're tired when...

You fall asleep in the Exersaucer :) Lilly really is asleep here, even though you can see her eyes just a little (apparently this is how her Grandma Judy sleeps also)

Roll along...

We've been perfecting the ROLL lately!! Here is Lilly in mid-roll. She can go in any direction - left, right, to belly, to back...she is EVERYWHERE! Her little body twists and turns in some very strange directions. Al was playing with them this morning and she started scooting around. He said that if she would not have been on a blanket, she would have been across the floor. LOOK OUT! Griff is doing pretty well on rolling from belly to back in either direction, but has not really seemed interested in going from back to belly yet. It is quite comical to watch him as he tries to go over feet first, raising his lower torso about a foot off the ground, but then ends up rolling over by tilting his head and following that :)
And then we have Addison. She is just so content wherever she is. When we put her on her belly, she just plays there for awhile. She CAN roll to her back, just choses not to as much as the other two. She shows no interest in rolling to her belly from her back though.
