The Past Two Weeks in Pictures...

The best way for me to remember what's been going on in the past 2 weeks is to upload the pictures off of our camera! So bare (or is it bear?) with me as I show you all what we have been up to!

The weather has finally started to warm up here so the girls are getting to wear more of their spring attire. I have to say that when we first found out we were expecting, we hoped for a boy, but obviously we just really wanted a healthy baby. But now, I can't imagine having boys. I love dressing up these girls. It really was a highlight for me to put spring clothes on my babies. Anyway, here are Lexi and Lyla modeling some cute dresses. (Lexi is in yellow and Lyla is in the pinkish)

Lexi decided to turn and face plant into Lyla's lap. By the look on Lyla's face, she wasn't pleased.

I turned 30 the day after the above pictures were taken. Sadly, I didn't take any pictures. I actually wanted to because I straightened my hair. For those of you that don't know, I pretty much only wear my hair curly these days. My parents watched Lexi and Lyla while Josh and I went out for dinner. Surprisingly, I haven't minded being the big 3-0.

Josh and I decided to remove the net from Lexi and Lyla's bathtub because they are getting too big for it. Also, they thought it was fun to hang their legs off of it so we decided it was time. Here's Lexi chilling in her big girl tub:

Lexi and Lyla get bored really easily so we are constantly having to move them from location to location to keep them happy. We were starting to run out of "stations" for them so we finally broke down and bought them some Jumperoos (dang those things are expensive). They seem to like them so far but we have to put a pillow under their feet since they are little shorties.

This next story isn't really that interesting but the pictures are way too cute. Josh and I had Chili's take out the other night for dinner. Apparently Lexi likes chips.

Josh and I took the girls in his Jeep and went to Mensi's the other day. Mensi's is an old school little stand off of Town Square here in Collierville. They have burgers, corn dogs, milkshakes, snowcones, and much more. We'd been wanting to try it for a while but just hadn't had the chance. Our plan was to get the food and go to a nearby park to eat but of course it started to rain, so back home we went. Here are the girls when we got back (Lyla asleep):

And here's some good stuff. The girls LOVE carrots. Well, especially Lexi. We finally gave up on the rice cereal because they just don't seem to like it. And I don't blame them. I mean that stuff STINKS.

Here are the girls post-carrots. ALL CLEAN!

Finally this morning I caught Lyla trying to apparently escape from her bouncy seat. Don't worry, I was always there to make sure she didn't go too far.

Really I think she just wanted her feet.

So that's a taste of the Jones life for the past 2 weeks. Thanks for checking up on us and I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Love the pictures. Their little buddha bellies are so cute! I am glad they are enjoying the carrots. Mensi's...yummy! They have the best milkshakes.

  2. Looks like it's time to put those seats on the floor. :) We ride our bikes to Mensi's sometimes after dinner for ice cream. Maybe we can meet you there so I can see the girls...and you of course!
