We're 21!!!!! (months!)

I can't believe how fast the months have gone by. In just 3 months I will officially have 2 year olds!?!?!? Wow! It has been so much fun watching them turn into little people. Everyday continues to bring about a new word, and as Beau says, "the level of conversation improves daily". They will even come out with words that I had no clue they new! This morning River looked into the kitchen, saw some flowers I bought last night,and started pointing saying "flower, flower" (a girls after my own heart). Rayne seems to find a new song to sing everyday. Her and JuJu truly seem to have their own language when interacting with each other. They can get each other to laugh by just looking at each other sometimes. It is the sweetest thing. Don't get me wrong, they do have some momements like all siblings do, but Rayne does watch out for JuJu. Skye. Oh, Skye! My little drama queen. She LOVES her hats from Aunt Natasha and every morning has to put her hat on, but also has to put a hat on all of her sisters whether they want it or not! Yesterday she almost gave me heart failure. She came running out of her room crying, screaming, having a fit. I really thought something was seriously wrong. First glance, no blood, no obvious sign of injury. Yeah! So, she gets my attention runs back to her room, of course, still crying/screaming. I follow and she points to JuJu who is wrapped up in a blanket not moving on the chair. NOW my heart truly skips a beat! JuJu then moves the blanket and goes, boo! UGH!!!!!!! Now that I'm breathing again, Skye still having a fit, I look her over more closer. It was then that I realized the porblem. JuJu was playing peek-a-boo with HER blanket! Skye was having a fit (seriously, you would have thought someone ripped her toenails off), because JuJu had her blanket and refused to give it back. Once the situation was remedied, Skye went over to JuJu bed, grabbed her blanket and ran out the room. It was the funniest thing (esp. now that I know everyone is ok!). Each of the girls have a blanket that is their color. Skye is VERY attached to hers. Aunt Liz got them for them before they were born and they have slept every night with them since they came home! Thank-you Aunt Liz!!!!

Well as with growing up, the house is in the next stage of remodeling (and no I don't mean the upstairs!) Our beautiful book shelf now looks like this:

Because of this:

Now to go clean up the next round of chaos! They have dicovered how to get their juice out of the sippy cup and create their own "splash park"!!!! Nothing is safe or sacred in this house anymore. Except Skye's blanket!
I have a ton of really cute pics & videos of the girls to hopefully upload tonight so hopefully I'll have them up for you later.
