A day of firsts for my girls .........

Friday was a great day with my daughters. Shelby & I went and got our hair highlighted. This was her 1st time to get highlights and her hair looks so good !!!
Shelby getting her

hair done .....

.... and look how pretty she looks with her new "do" !!

Aubrey also her a first the same day ........... She got her first hair cut and boy it was something !! She didn't know what to think. At first she was kinda ok with it but then she totally freaked out. We gave her a sucker but that only helped for a split second when I got a picture then it was back to screaming until she was done !!! My poor baby might be traumatized by this .......

I know it looks bad, but at the end she was ok with the whole situation !!!

Crazy piece of quietness

Last night Ms. Aubrey decided she was going to wake up @ 1:30AM because she wasn't feeling very well and didn't go back to sleep until 5:15AM when her Daddy left to go to work. We had quite a time in the middle of the night while Mike was the only one sleeping. I tried for about 1 hour to put her in my bed to try to sleep but she just kept poking my eyes saying "Eyes, Eyes, Mom Eyes" SHe is so excited she knows her body parts.... When that didn't work I took her in the living room hoping maybe I could rock her back to sleep........... not a chance she was not going back to bed. I turned on the tv and she sat in my lap in the chair for a while before she decided it was time to draw. She got a pen & paper and started making her marks then before I knew it she was drawing on me and herself !! I took the pen & paper away and she found the nail clippers so I tried to cut her nails and she kept telling me "No, Mom" "Stop, Mom" . I was like serioulsy child it is the middle of the night please go to sleep. Aubrey knows sign language for eat , drink, please, & more so she was telling me eat please in sign language so at 4:00am I took her to the kitchen and she ate some cereal. Mike's alarm goes off at 4:15am and when it went off he walked in and saw us wide awake and was in total shock. Since we were awake Mike gave Aubrey a shower after she ate and we got her dressed in her night clothes again hoping that she would be so tired since it is 5:00Am by now and thank goodness her Daddy was able to get her to go back to her bed and asleep by 5:15AM. It amazes me how much my daughters are in love with their Daddy. I was up for 4 hours trying to get her to sleep and Mike just made it look so easy !!! Amazing !!!

Tonight my Mom has Aubrey & Shelby is at a friend's house so it's just Mike & I here but I swear I keep hearing Aubrey cry in her room. I think I'm just sleep deprieved but it's so quiet here I miss my girls !!!

Always the last to sleep .....

Why am I always the last to go to sleep ? I am always so tired but when it comes time to go to bed at night I can't seem to fall asleep. I went to check on my kids and couldn't help taking their pictures while they were sleeping cause they are so sweet when they are sleeping and I thought I'd just take one of Mike so he didn't feel left out ( or cause I thought it is going to be really funny when he sees this post !! )

Trying something new .........

Ok, I read several blogs I have found on the internet daily. I read some blogs of people I know and some from people I don't know but through reading their blogs I feel like I know them. So I decided that I am going to try this blogging at I am so interested in and see if it is something I am good at and also as a way to try to keep my friends and family informed on what is going on in our life. I feel like that sometimes life happens so quickly and I lose track of how long it has been since I talked to a friend or a family member and I don't want my friends and family to feel like I forgot about them anymore. Now if they want to know what's going on in the Koval House, they can read my blog !!! So here we go ..............
