My girls

Aubrey & Allyson
These girls are my world. Their smiles make me smile. Aubrey's words make me laugh. She's so bright. The things she comes up with. I cannot wait to see all that she will accomplish. Ally's coos melt my heart. I can't wait to hear her voice. See her with teeth. Will she grow up and look like her sister? Look more like her Daddy?

My Momma

Sisters Tess & Kaylee

This is the sewing master! She makes Martha Stewart look horrible. She is such a wonderful mother in law. I miss living across the street from her. She has been an incredible help with Allyson and Aubrey. She has saved the day in so many ways.

Day 3 : Your first love

I met Conrad in September 2002 at KFC. He was such a fun guy to work with. Lots and lots of laughs. We started dating in September 2003. Christmas Day 2004 Conrad proposed to me at one of our favorite parks to hang out at. I had no idea! Conrad and I went to Lake Tahoe on February 15th, 2005 without anyone knowing and got married. It was the best thing I have ever done.

Back in Lake Tahoe to celebrate our 5th anniversary

Conrad is such an amazing man. He has such a kind and caring heart. Not just for me and our family but he truly cares about others. He puts up with me and all of my drama. He loves the outdoors, I do not. He loves to camp and be out in nature ... I am not a fan but I do it because I love him.

He is such an amazing father to our girls. He really loves to play with Aubrey and I can tell he can't wait for Allyson to get bigger so he can play more with her. He has his sweet tender moments with the girls and it just melts my heart!

Day 2: Meaning behind your blog name

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The blog used to have a different name. andaubreymakes3 ... well that was before we had little miss Allyson. I thought we needed a new one, something that fit us. All of us. Life with Paulsen because it's about our family. Sadly it took me forever to think of that and it's really lame. HA!

Bath time!

Since I'm actually sitting down I thought I would post a few pictures. Of course Allyson is asleep on my lap so I'm trapped and can't upload the pictures from today so how about some cute bath time pics? Ok!!

Allybug loves bath time. She smiles and splashes the whole time. She keeps her fists closed so tight. It's hard to pry them open to wash her teeny tiny hands. I've been giving both girls a bath at the same time. They both love it!

Blog Challenge

As you can tell I have really slacked on blogging. I hate that I don't do it as much. I really wish I could post new pictures of Allyson and Aubrey but I feel like I don't have time or free hands.

Allyson - 2 month check up

Ally went in for her 2 month check up on Thursday. She is doing great. Her RSV is gone. She's not throwing up mucus all the time. She's gaining weight. Ally is doing wonderful!!

Weight: 11 pounds 3 ounces (50% percentile)
Height: 23 inches (75% percentile)

What can Allyson do?
-Smile back at us
-Sometime you can catch her giggling
-Found her hands
-Turn her head towards us when we talk
-melt our hearts hearing her "talk" to us

Middle of January?!

I don't understand where time is going?!?

We are half way through January already? I cannot believe how fast time is going by. Allyson had her 2 month check up. She's doing great! She's finally over all her sickness and her little personality is coming out. She's quite a little talker now, just like her sister.

Aubrey is getting bigger and bigger, my gosh I can't believe she will be four this year! *sigh* She is getting smarter and smarter everyday. Her memory is still incredible, better than mine most of the time.

I love spending my days with the girls. The sun came out earlier this week and it was a pretty nice day. I bundled Allyson up and Aubrey grabbed her scooter and we went out for a walk. It was the best feeling seeing my big girl scootering along. Ally slept the entire time.

Here are some recent pictures of the girls.
