We hit a huge milestone this week! #jillianpiper decided she was ready to throw away 2 pacifiers for the trash man to pick up. We've been talking about this and she had been saying she wanted to do it but she doesn't understand what I mean when I say he doesn't come until Friday... She eagerly went to the door to do it with her 2 favorites in hand! Randall carried her out to the big trash can and she willingly threw them in and said bye bye!!! She did ask for them that night... BUT she still has 2 others in her crib so she was fine. Then she woke up and told me she wanted to give her next favorite one to the trash man too. I held off because she's staying the night tonight with her grandparents and I didn't want that to cause any problems. I didn't think this would happen this quickly with how attached she is to them. We do still have the "car pacis" to get rid of and the 2 left in her crib. I felt a little bad! They are like her friends. But she willingly did it.
Other than that she basically has turned into a monkey climbing on EVERYTHING! I always say "be careful" and now she does too. If I am not looking I know when she's climbing because she is telling herself "be careful" when she does it! Her new way to hang out in the living room is how she is in this picture with half of herself on the couch and the other half on the ottoman hanging over the space between.
Occasionally she'll say "mommy take a picture" but today wasn't one of those days... She will not look at my phone if she doesn't want her picture taken.

"Quick - they're both awake! We have to get their picture together"
Magnolia is 1 week older, but Bear started out like a pound ahead and is keeping his lead 😊
This was a fun busy weekend! Friday night seems like more than just 2 days ago.

#magnoliashea is all smiles lately! She really is beginning to interact, coo and socially smile. She's been sleeping pretty well at night, if I sneak in and feed her before I go to bed she sleeps through the night til at least 6:30 - once til 8:30! Nursing is still not painless, but I try to distract myself... I do want to do it as long as possible. We had her 2 month appt, she is almost 12lbs and she handled her shots like a champ. (I had Randall go in and hold her, I didn't watch) She is now fitting in 3 month clothes, and the 0-3 month clothes are already getting snug. She's probably ready to go to size 2 in diapers, but I have quite a few size 1s still. But she is having blow outs like every other day so I think it's time. We really can't remember what life was like before she was here!

So she's 2 now! She still hasn't had a first haircut and she still uses a paci. She talks more than me and really like playing with blocks.
Her being 2... Does that mean I should stop counting in weeks...? Probably. I think I'll still keep taking weekly pictures because it keeps me taking pictures at least once a week of her. I'm not one of those people with my phone always out so I miss taking pictures a lot when I could/should have. But saying I'll put one weekly one here keeps me at least taking that photo. And I don't keep any sort of baby book, people have asked me questions like when did she get her first tooth?... Honestly I had to scroll back in Instagram to recall, I didn't document it anywhere else! Hopefully someday this can all be exported. So blah blah blah, yes I'm gonna keep taking weekly pictures #sorrynotsorry #jillianpiper

You are one of the sweetest gifts from the Lord. You are such a fun, funny, loving, smart, energetic and talkative little girl. The past 2 years have been awesome, and they sure have flown by quick! Our prayer is that you will come to know Jesus at a young age and grow into a woman who loves the Lord with all her heart.
Happy 2nd Birthday!
We love you so much!

#magnoliashea is so smiley lately, she seems like she's really paying attention to what's going on around her now. She likes staying awake and wants to be held from like 5 or 6pm until 9... Which is the busiest time in our house. But she's on a pretty regular schedule for the rest of the day otherwise - and she's been sleeping GREAT at night... Like all night every night this week except one night. 😄
Also-she is officially boycotting pacifiers, we can't get her to take any in her mouth anymore. That may be a good thing?
I went back to my Wednesday night bible study this week too, which was the first time Randall did bed time without me... Everyone's still alive😊
It's almost like I can't even remember what it was like before when Magnolia wasn't here yet.

#jillianpiper1weekolder 104!!! (52x2)😮
I don't know what I expected 2 years ago when she entered our lives, but #jillianpiper has been such a wonderful gift. Some days I'm not sure I'm doing this mom thing right but then other days she demands to read her "bible book" and reminds me to pray when I give her a snack. She is becoming reallllly more talkative and talks in pretty much sentences for everything. This week she decided she likes sun flower seeds and we had some special times just sitting there cracking them - "more seeds mommy". This photo was from yesterday morning, today she's going to Disneyland with gramma and pop... But we planned it a week ago and have had to spell out "Disneyland" since then because she's been so upset that she couldn't go each day and when gramma picked her up she clearly said she wanted to go on Ariel ride, baby boo ride (monsters inc), and Winnie the Pooh Elephant ride. We will need to get passes again soon, in the meantime we are using our zoo/safari park passes to do one or the other for her birthday this weekend.

#magnoliashea seems to be really looking at things more and noticing things around her! She is pretty smile-y too! Breastfeeding is only slightly better since fixing her tongue tie and lip tie... Hopefully it soon becomes less painful. She went to her first women's retreat too and that was a lot of fun!

"Play blocks mommy" is her favorite thing to say (or asking anyone who visits to also play) and her favorite movie right now is the "Winnie the Pooh elephant" movie. Today she wasn't feeling well though, as in snot was all over her face and then hands... So this was a first In our house where I was torn between caring for her and keeping her as far from Magnolia as possible too. She has been working on counting - she gets to 8 then goes back to 7 for some reason... I've got a week if I want her to know her ABCs completely by her 2nd birthday too... #jillianpiper

#magnoliashea slept 10pm to 8am! 🙌 And Jillian was still quiet in her crib too. We feared shed climb out but she hasn't attempted again since being told not to. That means we slept great last night!! But Magnolia had already eaten 4 times by this time yesterday versus 1 time so far today. I'm realizing when she eats 7-8 times in a day then she will sleep longer at night. But now I'm way behind to fit in that many today. That's ok, I'll take what I can get.😴 1 whole night of sleep in a week is more than I've had since I was 7 months pregnant.

I think these have been some of the fastest weeks ever! Magnolia had her first Easter, which included her first blow out diaper during church and sleeping through the egg hunts. We had her evaluated for tongue tie and lip tie and decided to do the revision procedure to see if it would improve breastfeeding, so far not much of an improvement but it can take a couple weeks I guess, she's having to re-learn how to nurse. I think she's still fussy from the procedure but that hasn't stopped her from smiling more than ever this week. She went to two koinonias this week too. She also had her like 10th trip to Baja fish tacos... We go there too much.

Easter was really fun! She enjoyed the egg hunts and so cutely would say "Jesus is risen!, He is alive!" We had a couple firsts today - playing in the tub without water (she talked Aunt Cathy into this lol) and climbing out of the crib!!! 😱we have to figure that out very quick...

We talk about Easter and Jesus' death and resurrection and that believing in that saves us from our sins and gives us the confidence that we will go to heaven at the end of our lives.
But we still have these lives to live - in this life, it is so awesome to know that the same spirit that rose Jesus from the dead lives inside of me and He helps me get through this life and He gives me an immeasurable peace and joy along the way.
Thank you Jesus!🙌🙌

Since Instagram is my "baby journal" - this week #magnoliashea went 3 nights sleeping over 6 hours straight! I gotta just work on sleeping the same hours! While nursing was improving, and she is gaining weight - it is still so painful for me! We made an appt for Monday with a specialist for lip and/or tongue tie - if they determine that she needs the revision, they will do the procedure then too. Please pray for us to do the right thing. She is smiling at us quite a bit when we are close enough and cooing even more this week. She did fine at church Sunday and at Virtue on Thursday morning - she sat quietly in the wrap in both services. She made a few grunts and noises but the people sitting near me knew it wasn't me bc they saw her. I think her face has changed I bit in the last week too, she doesn't have that brand new newborn face and her eyes are seeming to stay pretty blue too.
