I've got nothing..... nothing comes to mind that would be so interesting to blog about- sorry....
Shay and Anika seem to be cruising along at their own pace. They have their own language-- no one can understand it, but they seem to know exactly what each other is saying. It's insane. Both love to be outside- esp. the swings. Anika seems to be my new appendage at most parks--she will not let go of me. Makes it a bit hard when you are trying to spot Kylie on the monkey bars... she'll get there. Shay is fearless and will do whatever she can get away with. (note-- this is a complete flip of personality).
Kylie has moved up in the world. She is no longer in a toddler bed, but now a full sized bed.... she is super excited and has new sheets and can have ALL of her stuffed animals on her bed. So far so good. Her bed is more comfortable than mom and dads-- how does this happen??
This past weekend we went and celebrated Ryan, Luke, and Abby's birthday at the Danneggers. Everyone had a great time, but esp. Kylie. She enjoyed all of the other peoples birthday presents. :)
And last..... I don't know. The rain has been a bummer here.... rained all weekend. We got out for a walk around the block and that was it... hoping it leaves today and we can be back to sunshine and playing outside. Below are some pictures of Shay playing dress-up. Chris said that she kept picking up the mermaid outfit and handing it to him. He put it on her and she was happy as can be..... not sure Kylie is ready to share those toys yet.
This is Kylie checking out her new wheels at the annual firehouse fundraiser. She got to check out a few rescue trucks, eat, get her face painted, character balloons, and jump in the jumper... she loved it, but was pretty tired after the day--- and of course refused to take a nap. Needless to say, we were a bit grumpy at the end of the day.
Last week we had a great visit with Charlie Garber (and his mom too!) The twins were more interested in just watching him and observing his moves. (Charlie turns a year at the end of June, so a bit younger than the twins). Too bad they don't live closer, but its great to see the Garbers everytime they are in town.
I've only got one picture of Charlie, so hopefully Katie will share some when she gets back home to Ohio.
Kylie has come up with a new word for the dictionary.
Bath night was last night and we've got a routine. "Usually" one of the twins will get in first, get her done, then Kylie and the second kiddo will get in. It normally gets stressful during the second bath because once Kylie is in the water, she has a hard time listening and being careful of her sister. I think every other thing out of my mouth is "Kylie, watch out!" or "What are you thinking?" It gets frustrating since it always seems she is constantly getting scolded. In any case, last night before she got in, Kylie announced she was going to COOPERTENSION. I asked her to repeat herself so I could get it right....
"Coopertension, mom. You know, Cooperate and pay attention."
Smart kid-- so, look out all you smarty pants, Kylie is now here and making her own words up....
Easter weekend proved to be busy, but not sure what busy means..... three kids under 4 keeps us pretty busy in itself!
Friday the kids were happy Chris was home, so all attention was given to him.... "play with me daddy, play with me!"
Saturday, the whole crew went to Famous Footwear for Kylie.. she had an audience when she was picking her shoes out. Never would have headed there until a friend told me about a sale... I had to ask where it was located-- can you tell I hate to shop! HA! Kylie ended up with two pairs of shoes and if you call, she'll be sure to tell you all about them. She was SOOOOO excited.
Sunday, the Easter bunny made a huge mess of carrots and lettuce all over the kitchen floor- can you believe it! The bunny did leave eggs out for all the kids. Kylie and Shay were most into it, Anika was not too interested. The weather outside allowed us to get outside for a bit and hang out on the swingset...
And that's the end for us...
Anika in the toybox
Shay wearing Kylie's Dora nightgown-- see almost fits Shay better than Kylie... hummmm...
All three kids playing row, row, row your boat... Chris and Anika sitting on the stairs watching Kylie on the swingset.
