Love them!

Can it get any cuter than a big sister who wants to love her little sister non-stop?!? I think not! I had yet to put clothes on Ada one morning and big sister Abby decided that if Ada didn't have to wear clothes then neither did she!

Ada is not really a fan of tummy time and refuses to hold her head up. We usually cheat a little and hold her against our chests to strengthen those neck muscles!

Abigail helped herself to a snack and poured a bowl of cookies! When she walked into the room with that big bowl of cookies I had to just laugh. But she was a great sister and wanted to share with Ada so badly!

I love how Abby loves her sister. So sweetly and amazed! And I can already see the admiration in Ada's eyes as she stares at Abby. They both just look at each other with such love and awe! I can't wait to watch them grow up together and hopefully have that loving, sister bond grow stronger!

And well, this picture just makes me smile cause it's Abby's personality all in one shot! Crazy, wild, non-stop and wanting to show her sister everything she can!

My little Picaso

Hot day...bored almost 2-year-old...mommy's paint supply...FUN!

It all started out nice and messes were being made and Abigail was being very particular about keeping the paint on the paper, the brush and the plate.

She was actually quite pleased with what she was creating! And such an imagination! Knew exactly what she was painting and how she wanted it to look!

But then things got a little crazy...a switched flipped in her head and her eyes got a weird look...then it started...the painting of the body parts...

And what happens when you've run out of feet and arms??? You taste it of course!!

Follow it all up by washing mommy's car in the buff and you've got a great afternoon!

Two happy girls

The first captured smiles. Enjoy the cuteness :)

Little miss priss had to have her moment to shine - every time she sees the camera she automatically says cheese :)

Sister talk

Can you see the resemblance :)

And of course, a video of the cuteness.

Strawberry pickin'

Last weekend we went with the Facenda family to the strawberry festival at a local farm - McLeod Farms. We started out the morning with a tractor ride out the the fields where they turned us loose on the fields - actually that's an understatement...we conquered those fields :) The weather was perfect and strawberries were everywhere! Of course as soon as we got off the tractor, Abby and Kyler began stuffing their faces with the deliciousness! I'm pretty sure that all the strawberries in our basket had a bit taken out of them! 

Starting out with strawberry faces!

Our ride out to the fields. Sweet and sweaty Ada is somewhere under there :) She was so great the whole day and just slept the entire time!

Discussing the strategy for tackling the field.

Mommy trying to explain to Abby that she just needs to pick the red ones

Such intense picking :)

Can you see Joe? He takes the job very serious - I think he was the last one out in the field!

Carie and Kyler concentrating very hard on finding the perfect berry!

How cute was this little thing?? 
Perfect weather. Perfect day. Perfect friends. Perfect memories.
