Tinkle tinkle

E's favorite song! She actually asks to sing "How I". Iz likes the same tune, but prefers "A, B, C".

Pre-school...take 2

Well, she apparently cried most of the day today and refused he snack again. *sigh*
She seems fine now though. Eating, playing, sleeping.

Prayers are welcomed.

E's first day of pre-school

We were late to sign up, but at the last minute we decided E needed to be in pre-school. She is painfully shy and we are hoping this helps her with socializing and learning. Right now we can't learn much at home with little sis always wanting to be in the middle of it.

I don't have any great pics since she was clinging to my leg the whole time. She cried when I dropped her off (even though I stayed in the room for 10 min with her). She was doing OK when I peeked back in 20 mins later. Then when we went back to pick her up (2 1/2 hours later) she was bawling. Poor thing. I know she will be fine once everything becomes routine because as we walked out she was telling me all about her new teacher, chapel, and pointing to new friends.

BTW- It was AMAZING how much I accomplished yesterday while she was in school. Having one at home is easy!!! She will go every Monday and Wednesday this year from 8:30-11:30. I can't believe I have 2 babies in school! Now if we could just ditch that paci...

On our way!
Some of you parents will notice her car seat harness is not where it should be. Well, she doesn't like it there and moves it. Any ideas for how to keep it up where it should be would be greatly appreciated!!

I think this is hilarious!

J learned how to make flip books to show motion this summer. Now he is taking that skill and trying to do movies. Here is one set of frames....

Totally random pics from the last week

I realize I am getting lazy, but we are in the middle of painting our house and remodeling. So things are crazy...and messy around here.



At our nephew, E's, party.

(Our E didn't really ride these go karts and I am glad. She would have been terrified)



J actually ended up riding with me.

Can't you tell he is thrilled???
I wanna be a cowgirl! (with chocolate mustache)
Where can I get some of that chocolate???
Our newly painted music room. The blue is actually turquoise. I love it!

No more babies here....

Today our littlest angel is 14 months old. It seems impossible since I think of her as the baby. I constantly carry her, and baby her in ways she has probably outgrown. But...she is my baby!
She has gone from a teeny baby in the NICU with a hole in her lung, to a child that can climb up on the couch to hang out and watch tv, climb up the stairs (with some assistance), and says more words than I have ever heard a child her age speak. Some of her regular words are: swimming, cookie, thank you, night night, etc.

She is still the cuddliest of the children, often hanging out in my lap for kisses and hugs, yet will venture the furthest away (besides J of course) from Mommy and Daddy. E stays pretty close.

Oh, and since her first birthday she has added 3 top teeth to her mouth, and another is on the way (remember she only had 2 bottoms at that time) . Don't they grow up WAY too fast?
