Who else but our little cuties?!!!




Our sweet Ally baby had a difficult first 7 weeks of life, but thankfully the doctors were able to figure out the problem and correct it with surgery.  We are so grateful God allowed them to discover the cause of her intestinal problems or we might have lost our girl.

She is quite content now and loves to eat!

Smiles are precious!



She is a mommy's girl all the way!




I know it's not a great picture, but we had to get one of Mia in her Christmas dress my mom made her!


Mia loves to dance and sing!  She says, "Clap your hands and praise the Lord!"

Allyn Elizabeth Hemmer!

Allyn Elizabeth was born last Wednesday evening, and she was in quite a hurry!

After Alyssa's water broke, she started hard contractions almost immediately.  She was at our house, so Mom and Mel quickly helped her into our car and drove the 20 minutes to her house.  Jason met them there.  5 minutes after they walked in the door and 2 pushes later, Daddy, Grandma, and Auntie Mel caught little Miss Allyn because the midwife didn't make it in time!  48 minutes of labor from start to finish made for an exciting evening!

Mia adores her new baby sister!



We love this little girl!

Alphabet and piano time!

Ever since she was a little tiny thing, we've been letting Mia play the piano. When she was just a few months old, she would dance on the keys with her little feet. She's too big for that now, so we've moved on! She loves to play "pano" and "moosic", and it's never too early to instill a love for it!

Miss Mia loves to learn new things so everybody has been teaching her letters. She's only 17 months old, but why not? She recognized "E" after only two times of me showing it to her today. She is always requesting us to sing "abcfg".   She's missing a couple letters in there, but she'll get them eventually. :)

Water fun and animal sounds!

Mia loves to play in the little wading pool we have for her, but she obviously wasn’t too thrilled about the towel.


 The new brand of superhero! You’ve heard of Batman…Spiderman…Well, meet Frog Baby!

 We took her to the splash pad last week, but she wasn’t too sure about all that cold water shooting up at her.

  And then yesterday we took her to the pool.


 After a while, she found it was just as much fun to hide behind the chairs as it was to play in the water!

 She is quite the little monkey.
Our little girl loves to dance and "sing".  I thought we'd share some of her cuteness!

We had Mia go through all of her animal sounds today (except that I skipped “sheep”). Our favorite is her rooster noise!!!!! The first one I asked her was “dog”. It is a little cut off in the video. Her last two are what Daddy and Mommy say. Mommy’s is “ow” because that’s where she is in this state of her pregnancy. And for anybody that knows my brother, his is self-explanatory!
