After the crawfish boil, Eric was kind enough to boil me some more mudbugs since I didn’t my fill at the boil. Miles had a lot of fun playing with the crawfish.
Then it was time to play with the flowers next to the garden.
On May 2nd, Miles, Lyla and I headed up to Dallas for our first solo trip to visit family. Lyla’s great grandmothers, Mema and Gama, loved holding her.
Lyla hung out with her first cousin- once removed, Hunter.
And I got to spend time with Hunter’s sister (my cousin), Morgan. (Is your mind bent yet?)
Papa was thrilled to be in matching outfits with his grandkids.
My cousin, Cameron, was the perfect host and helped me with the kiddos while we were in town. I couldn’t have done it without her.
The highlight of our week last Friday was a visit from Uncle Chris and Aunt Kim! Miles has a thing about falling asleep on Kim. Flashback to Feb. 2008:
We didn’t think he’d remember her but sure enough he passed out on her shoulder within minutes of her arriving!
After he woke up he decided to hide from me in her lap.
Lyla enjoyed some cuddle time with Uncle Chris and fell asleep in his lap in no time at all.
Did I mention that Lyla is now 3 months old?! Time flies with your second kid. She is still an amazing baby. She has rolled over once from her stomach to her back and is now cooing and smiling all of the time. She melts our hearts every time with her smiles. Miles still loves his baby sister and always wants to make sure I’m not forgetting her when we leave the house to run errands.
Mother’s Day weekend was busy with a visit from my mom’s parents (a.k.a Gama and Bapa). We celebrated Gama’s 83rd bday and enjoyed a relaxing day and evening with family.
That’s all for my catch up post! It’s a lot harder to update our blog on a regular basis with 2 kids but I think I fit it all in there
