Babysitting...at least it makes for good pictures :-)

Well, yes, I am still babysitting two days a week. And yes, sometimes I do feel like pulling my hair out. But lately I've been pulling out the camera instead. When the babies get into mischief, I snap a picture and it helps relieve the stress, at least for a minute! Here's some pics from our crazy days lately.

First, I have to show/tell you about what sweet friends Eden and Brylee have become. When Brylee gets to my house in the mornings, she goes into Eden's room with me to wake her up. And you have never seen two more excited toddlers!


"Bylie!" "Edie!" they exclaim.


Of course, within a few minutes they're stealing each other's toys and pushing each other out of her chair. But they also make-up quickly!


One cute thing is watching the girls love on Luke. I'm sure Brylee does it all the time at home, but I think it's especially sweet to watch Eden do it. I think she is going to love being a big sister!


But then, there is that blessed mischief I was talking about. I thought Eden was a daredevil until I started keeping Brylee. The girl is scared of nothing. She will jump, crawl and climb onto, into and over anything. I have found her in some interesting places!


Yes, they are in this pool with their clothes on. It has been sitting in our yard with water for a week. Until today, Eden would walk up to the edge and stick her hands in it and splash. But today Brylee showed her, "Look Eden, you don't have to wait on a swimsuit to go swimming!" So they just plunged in :-)
