Do my babies look alike?

It seems like everyone always wonders who a baby looks like.  When the first baby comes along, you wonder if it looks like the mom or the dad.  We were always told that Carson was a good mix of the two of us.  When the second baby comes along, you wonder if it looks like the first baby?  Brynlee didn't look exactly like Carson, but similar enough to be siblings.  She was after all a girl and was never caught without a headband on!  So, who does the third baby look tell me!!!




Here are each of them coming home from the hospital

And here are each of them getting their first bath. (You can tell our camera has gotten better over the years!)

Photos courtesy of Grandpa

I love when my parents come to visit b/c it always means lots of pictures courtesy of my dad.  My dad is an awesome photographer!  He is rarely seen without a camera around his neck...seriously.  I can get rather annoyed or impatient taking pictures of my kids, so I love it when he comes and does it for me!  Thanks're great!  Here are a bunch of pictures he took while he was here.

 Here are some spoooky pictures of Carson as the Grim Reaper!

Here are a bunch of cute shots of Bryn posing for grandpa.  After a few minutes of pictures, Brynlee said "Grandpa, I'm done now.  You can take pictures of the stairs."

Grandpa and Grandma came to watch Brynlee at dance class.  She is taking both Tap and Ballet this time around and loves it!  She has lots of friends in the class (a bunch of us from church put our girls in together), including our neighbor, Taylor (pictured below with Brynlee). 

And a cute shot of little Lincoln.

Thanks for all the awesome pictures Grandpa Simmons!

Tummy Time!

Here's little Lincoln trying tummy time for the first time today.  He liked it!!!  He was very much he started to fall asleep!  I just love this little boy!

Grandma & Grandpa Simmons

We love when family comes to visit!  This time is was Grandma and Grandpa Simmons!  They came down to help after we had the baby and they sure were a lot of help!  Just playing with the bigger kids is a HUGE help!  Carson and Brynlee absolutely loved playing with them.  Brynlee called grandpa her Best Friend and Carson loved playing games and reading books with grandma.  We wished they could've stayed longer!  Here are a ton of pictures from their stay with us.

 Grandpa jumped on the trampoline with the kiddos on the one semi-warm day of the week.

 We did a little photo shoot with baby Lincoln.  Jen came over with some props and her and my dad took some pictures.  And I took some pictures of them taking pictures of Lincoln...there were a lot of cameras on him!

Grandpa playing barbies with Brynlee...and you wonder why he was her best friend!

 Grandma reading them a story and using little stuffed fish to go along with the story.

We loved having grandma and grandpa Simmons here for a week...come again soon!!!
