6 months! But which is Lydia?

My family doesnt think that Abigale and Lydia look very much alike. They think that Abigale looks more like Jonathan and Lydia looks more like me but when I look at baby pictures they look pretty similiar to me. What do you think? Both look adorable to me but I am a little biased!

Mothers Day

I definitely got spoiled on Mothers Day and I loved every second of it. It was so nice to have a day when I could get away with taking a nap, not changing diapers, making breakfast, laying in bed and not feel guilty. Jonathan started the day off right with bringing me breakfast in bed. Crepes with homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream! Yum! He gave me beautiful flowers and a card that Abigale helped decorate and a new patio set. I love it and know that we will get a lot of use out of it this summer. Some days I still can't believe that I am a mother but I am so grateful that I have two beautiful girls. They bring me so much joy, and some days pain, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Dont mind how awesome I look, I really just woke up.
The Patio Set!Just some pretty pictures of spring in our backyard:
Our Garden: We got so excited this year to have our own garden that we planted about a month early. We had a few nights of frost which is why there is plastic on the ground so we can quickly cover the plants. So far they are growing just fine so maybe we will get some tomotoes earlier this year.

Wisdom Teeth

My wisdom teeth are what I am blaming my lack of blogging on because I finally got them out last week. It was an interesting experience because I decided to have my dentist do it and not be knocked out but just numbed (it was much cheaper this way). Although I was very nervous and thought my jaw would break a few times, I am actually very glad I did it this way. I just turned my ipod up really loud and breathed in the gas. Recovery was much faster which is vital with two kiddos. I ate a lot of ice cream, pudding, yogurt, and smoothies but think I am finally fully recovered. My mom helped me out soo much. She came every day and even got Abigale to stay the night at her house one night which helped out a ton and I know Abigale had a blast. My mom is amazing. She stayed all week with me then left last Thursday to be with my Grandma because she hurt her back and is in a lot of pain. My sister has also been really sick lately so she left at 5:00 am on Saturday to catch a shuttle to the airport and fly to Chicago to take care of her! Thanks mom for everything you do! I feel so blessed to have you as my mom.
