Cross has also become crazily attached to her Creepy Owl we call "J.O" (Judgement Owl) because he has beady eyes and looks like he is judging people.. Well he is a Scentsy Owl and we noticed she was becoming pretty attached to him.. like she did not want to go to Bed without JO, and now she wants to bring him out of her bed.. and Carry him around. We have told her he is Nocturnal and that he doesn't want to do that.. but she doesn't care. She still cries to bring him outside her bed and fly him around.. I can't be mad at her for this.. Because I still have to have my blanket (Softy) to go to bed.. #sosueme. So we will see.. I would like to transition her onto a blanket or something because what if something happens to that Owl? Well.. We have a backup.. We have another owl just like him that we got in case that happened.. However, then the owl got discontinued and now we can't get any more.. so there you go. So maybe if I could talk her into a blanket..at least that would last a little longer.. not sure what we will do about this situation.
Baby Led Weaning.. Because that got them excited about food, and textures and new things, and now they are willing to try new things all the time.
So A woman came up to the girls and I in Sams the other day and told us that if you wrap your bananas in a plastic bag it will keep them from going bad as quickly.. I'm going to try it.. but I have realized that people will use whatever means necessary to talk to the girls, lol.. It gets bizarre, but I appreciate the kindness, and the fact that everyone wants to talk to them.. They are finally getting some hair.. LL's is blonde curls, and Cross's is a little bit darker, its super cute.
On a sad note.. All my knockout roses are diseased with Witches Broom.. (Read about it HERE) and as a result I'm going to have to dig them up, bag them, and burn them.. because apparently the only way you can get rid of the disease is by doing that.. otherwise it will spread all over the world and kill all the other knockout rose bushes.. Yes, this sounds a bit dramatic, but read for yourself.. Its sad.. and so far, no one has found anything that cures or stops it.. So I guess I'll be doing that soon. Blargh.
We are going to a cookout this weekend at MJ's dad's house. The girls will be excited to see them, and eat of course.. We love watching people love our girls.. the relationship they have with their grandparents makes me so happy. MJ had a very special relationship with his grandpa, and my Grandma Leona was my hero.. Every time I say "Londyn Lucille" it makes me think about how happy she is in Heaven looking down and seeing our sweet girls. For those of you who don't know, Cross's middle name is Shelton after MJ's grandpa, and Londyn is named after my grandma, Leona Lucille.. We both talk about how much they would love seeing them right now and it brings a smile to our face. So watching them form their own relationships with their grandparents warms
our hearts. There's seriously nothing better than watching people love your kids.. (oh, and love your dogs too)..
Speaking of Dogs.. Banks is doing awesome at our house. I have given up on trying to get the dogs to stop feeding the dogs food.. Cross will carry a piece for her, than a piece for Payslee and they share it.. (sigh)... They LOVE their dogs. Banks is so sweet and gentle with them. They fall on her, squeeze her, etc.. And Payslee loves being a good nanny to the girls.. following them around, licking their faces and resting by them.. Sawyer is indifferent, lol But he still cries when they cry which is BEYOND annoying.. please let him, or them grow out of this soon!! Crosslee is also obsessed with Papa's cows.. Thankfully for her, so is Banks.. so they like to go out and visit them together..
As always, super Thankful to My God who is good to me every single day, MJ & I's families, our friends, and our Church. We are surrounded by people who always look out for us, pray for us, and help us. #soblessed #trulygreatful #drinkingfrommysaucer
