First, today Lee had the girls while I worked....he took them to the park, did a DQ picnic, took them swimming, etc....a great daddy day from the sounds of it! Then tonight after he gave baths he let them play together on his phone....and he got some cute pictures of them together, being best buds :-)

|They love to play some kinda of fish farting game lol|
One of the orders I did today was for my blogger friend Britt ...please excuse the poor pics, but her girls' birthday outfits turned out very cute!
Hmmm....what else? Well, this week I've continued to sell baby stuff. Pretty much down to only the baby swing as far as big items go....and I'm not listing that right now because I figured I better keep something around for Finn! On Thursday last week I went to the consignment store to drop off my first pile of stuff. They are only accepting fall stuff right now and I had to bring in a test batch for them to go over. Wow--they are very picky! haha. They "rejected" about 5 of my things because of "stains"...well granted 2 of them I really could see (small spit up stains) but the other 3 I honestly could not see even when they pointed them out haha. So I took the offending items back home to wash and hopefully take with my next trip lol.
Of course while there I had to look around some. My new goal is to use the money I make from my stuff that sells, to turn around and buy the next size up that we need for Miss Raya. I was confident this should be pretty easy to do, but even more so after this last trip where I scored big time!
Thank you to the mom who brought in FIVE gymboree items that were new with tags! And which I purchased for $1.87 up to $3 each haha. Score! I also got an adorable white tank from Crazy 8, tags still attached too---for less than $2.
|The 4 items on the right are for her to grow into. The brown dress and white tank she can wear now.|
|See the gymboree tags still attached?! Craziness people. I think the price tag on the skirt alone was like $26 haha|
|The sweater and skirt look brand new...the shirt and pants look like they were worn a couple times is all.|
Now onto Miss Brielle developments....well, she's suddenly talking up a storm! Her favorite things to say right now are "Boo!" (she hides and then tries to scare you haha)...she also says "the end" when she finishes a book....and the other day when we were playing with our dolls and one fell she said "no no dee dee" (the doll's name) haha. Seriously, like overnight she started talking!
Also overnight she started throwing tantrums....a lot of them! She's really dramatic too. The funniest part is she likes to make a soft pile with her blankies to then throw herself onto and roll around in during herr tantrum. She likes to plan ahead for comfort ;-)
Friday is her big ear tube surgery....wish us luck!
This week I also watched Finn on Tuesday and Friday. I've started wearing him in the remaining baby carrier I haven't sold lol...and he likes it. I also continue to do photoshoots whenever I have him---I told his mom they were baby glamour shots! hehe. His mom also asked if I'd take their family pics and his 3 month pics in a week or so, so I may adventure into my first attempt at that shortly--just waiting to get my hands on lightroom that I ordered still!!!
Here are some of my favorites of him that I took this week though

|I love this one. I've discovered I have a preference for very upclose photos haha....i love them!|
|He tried out the exersaucer this week too---my mom had this and said I could sell it and keep the money....well sorry buddy, but I sold it tonight and it's supposed to be picked up Monday! We'll find something else for you ;-)|
|We played dress up too---such a shame that boys don't get to wear headbands regularly! ;-)|
|The huge mess was worth it because they played over an hour on their own haha|
