Our Littlest Princess

I can not believe how fast time has gone by.  She has gotten so big, and is starting to look less like a baby and more like a toddler.  It's bitter sweet.
At her check up she is in the 43% for weight & 14% for height. 
18 things we love about marley...
  • She is a GREAT little sister, her and Alyviah adore each other.
  • She LOVES playing 'babies' and loves to cuddle her Teddy Bear.
  • She has so many cute blankets, but prefers to carry around scrap material, it's her comfort.
  • She loves to eat and is constantly snacking, I have to change her clothes 2 or 3 times a day because she's always making sticky messes.
  • She is just barely starting to try and talk...she probably knows about 10 words haha.
  • She loves H2O...bath time is very enjoyable with her.
  • She's obsessed with her bink...I'm dreading taking her off of it.
  • She loves to dance, and can hardly stand when we take lyv to dance, she wants to go into the class so bad...only 18 more months :)
  • When Logan gets home from work/school she will run to the door.
  • She is a dare devil...she will jump off of anything and everything, whether your there to catch her or not...yes the poor things fallen down the stairs a couple times :/
  • She is a master fake cryer...I think she learned that from her big sister!
  • She thinks EVERYTHING is hers..."mine" is her favorite word :)
  • She loves playing dance freeze & red light green light, she's getting pretty good at them :)
  • Her smile and laugh is infectious, you can't look at her with out it making your day 
  • She has a Santa Clause Belly...I LOVE it!!
  • She loves to give hugs!! Anytime Alyviah cry's even when there in separate rooms you know Marley will be coming around the corner with her arms wide open.
  • She says hi & bye to anyone and everyone
  • She is a huge temper tantrum thrower...she will fold her arms then throw herself to the floor, roll on her belly and kick....once she goes through her ritual 2 seconds later she'll be laughing and smiling again.
Marley I am so glad that you are a part of our family! At such a young age you have such a big heart and amazing personality, and you've had it since the day you were born.

2 days of fun! (another long post)

First in case you wanted to see lyvs new hair style I took a picture :)  It's been pretty easy to hide, and has already grown a little bit!
Saturday we decided to take our sweet girls to Kangaroo Zoo!  My girls absolutely LOVE this place, they have a blast every time they go!! 

 Marley was a little nervous at first; this is her fake cry face.

Sunday we had our pumpkin party with the family! 

 Marley had to stop participating...she kept eating the paint!
 Love this picture

 Logan ended up with a big hole for a pumpkin...everyone does it once haha
 Nana and Lyv's pumpkin...Alyviah took Logans hole and made a pretty face :)
 McKay and Amy; We love them!

Friendly Reminder

On Sunday we were making a desert and Alyviah was helping. She had been told numerous amounts of times to back away from the kitchen aide while it was spinning, she did, so our back was turned for literally 5 seconds when the most heart breaking scream was heard.  
Alyviah had leaned over just real quick to get a peek and it caught her hair and twisted extremely tight.
The only way to get her head free was to cut it, so on the top of her head she has a nice large patch of one inch hair and on the side of her head a small area where the hair was pulled out so she looks a little bald.
We are so grateful that her hair is the only thing that was lost. Her head was pretty bruised but if we had not reacted quickly or had been anywhere but one step away from the off switch it would of kept spinning and it could have easily taken off her tiny little scalp.
So while the Holidays are coming and your making all those yummy treats, never leave your kitchen aide running unattended even if your only one step away.
