Crazy Girl!!!

This picture says it all...  She is quite the nut job!  Thankfully, she's our nut job.

Snuggle Buddies!

Mia & Brandon have developed an amazing bond!  As Aubrey goes through her outrageous terrible 2's, the two of them have drawn closer together.  As in, they sit back and wonder what the crazy chick is screaming about now!  They even ask to have sleep overs, as seen in this picture... They are truly two of the sweetest children I've ever encountered.  What the heck, 2 out of 3 ain't bad!!  Just kidding, we love our Aubs...

First Day of School!!

It's official, Mia is all grown up!  This past week Mia started Kindergarten.  She was so nervous the night before that she couldn't eat her dinner.  Then, she couldn't eat breakfast she was so scared...  Thankfully, at the end of the first day she announced that she had the best day of her life!  The rest of the week was smooth sailing and she seems to really be settling in with the new group of kids.  What's great is that her school is a new charter school that just opened about a half mile from our home.  It is very structured and rigorous, and the uniforms are a god send!  Time sure flies...

Pretty Girl

Aubrey has gone from being a chubby baby to a stunningly beautiful little girl, if I do say so myself!  Her attitude certainly isn't always what we'd like, but we absolutely love our obstinant little angel...  Here she is doing what she loves, posing for the camera!

Farmer Brown!

Big Boy sure is growing up quickly!  He loves to be silly with his hats and silly outfits...  He also happens to love Daddy's protein shakes.  Here he is enjoying some fruity health concoction!

Sleeping Issues!

Aubrey was driving the whole family to the brink of a break down with her recent sleeping issues!  She began waking up every night about 2:00-3:00 am and screaming as loud as humanly possible.  If we consoled her, she would stay up all night.  If we tried 'sleep training', the screaming would go on for hours...  After a sleepless week, our pediatrician actually prescribed hydrocodone for Aubrey and we removed Brandon from the room.  Thankfully 2 nights of the drugs broke the cycle and all is well in the Lovell household again.  The upside is that Brandon got to have a sleep over in Mia's room.  Here he is sleeping on her trundle bed. They were both so excited, and Mia made a little fort to make him feel safe...  She is an incredibly sweet older sister!

Happy 10 Year Anniversary Mommy!

It's hard to believe, but this past Friday was Mommy & Daddy's 10 year wedding anniversary!  Daddy bought Mommy a camera for the big night. When Momma turned it on to see how it works, she was surprised to see a picture of Mia modeling Mommy's real gift...  Mia was so proud to be a part of the gift giving process!  She's reached an age where everything is more enjoyable because she understands what events mean.  She's very curious and always asks very deep and meaningful questions.  She's the best gift of all.
