The third pic below was actually very difficult to get. I was trying to maneuver around two kids and still stretch my arm out far enough. haha! It was interesting. The last pic is of the kids posing with their "grandma blankets" as Collin calls them. Their great-great grandma made them and she just shipped Baby "A's" and it arrived in the mail yesterday. I wanted Collin to know that he had already gotten his so I had them lay on them together. Collin on his and Baby "A" on hers. =) Aren't they cute!

Both the kids thought they'd take a turn in the spot light and get in Daddy's face for a picture.

Today went so much better than yesterday with A. I think she's starting to feel comfortable in her new environment. She's been exploring everything, talking all the time, eating anything, and definitely laughing more. She still has to have Paul or me in her line of site at all times but she is still doing great. We still hear her starting to cry if she can't catch the cat but when she does catch him she pulls his whiskers so... it's probably a good thing she doesn't catch him. At least it's Baker though -- he just ignores her and walks away. haha! Hooray for nice cats! That's our update for today. I am really liking being a mother of two -- well, three but raising two ;). It keeps me busy but it's so much fun!

Here, she was playing with the soccer ball. She was determined to catch it but it kept rolling away so she'd chase after it. I think it wore her out b/c she was asleep a few minutes later. haha!

This was the question continuously asked to me during the passing of the sacrament on Sunday. I had explained to Collin that he needed to be quiet because the Holy Ghost needed to stay at church and when there is a lot of loud noise the Holy Ghost will go away. I told him people want the Holy Ghost around because he makes people happy.
Collin nodded as if he understood and then sat quietly looking at his book. About halfway through the passing of the "Jesus Bread" (as Collin calls it) he leaned over to me with his hand on his ear (as seen in photo) and asked, "Do you hear that, Mom? Do you hear that?"
I leaned down and reminded him to whisper then asked him what he heard. His response made me smile. "Collin hears the Holy Ghost, Mom!"
He repeated this several times. I thought it was awesome! =) I hope you enjoyed this story as much as me.
