It seems forever since I have actually updated the blog. It has been crazy busy despite all of the rain (that was very much needed!). Needless to say, we have needed to find ways to entertain FOUR 28month olds! Yes, we are rapidly approaching the halfway mard of the two's! Though, I have been warned of the threes, hmmm. Here is a sweet picture of JuJu. You would never know the chaos & drama that occured after this. She is one of my biggest food throwers. But doesn't she just look like an angel here? (even if the horns are holding up the halo??? I should know, I believe I was told that often growing up too, hehhehe) So to escape being cooped up, we took the girls to the mall again to play. I love these sweaters on them!
JuJu looking for something new to climb.
Skye is always looking things over. She is such my little organizer. She now even puts all of her bears in a row in her bed at night with her. She is even now taking one bear to go and "kiss" all of the other bears. It is soooo sweet to watch!
River still maintains her position as boss. Trust me, she WILL tell you AND if you have any doubt, she WILL order you around! And we have now noticed it is not limited to me, her dad or her sisters! You have been warned! Though she gives amazing hugs, and LOVES to snuggle early in the morning and right before bed. what can I say, she is a "mini-me" of ME!
Rayne is still my sweetie. She is also my stealth bomber still. She can sneak up & get things before you even realize she was there. She has also gotten really good at setting up her sisters and when "it" hits the fan, she will be standing there with THE most innocent look, going "la-la-la-la". Again, the halo is held up by the horns!
"Hey, Wiver, do you see those shoes? Look at that red balloon with those letters S-A-L-E!" "Yeah, whatever, it is cold, rainy,& mom has us in this plastic polka-dot get up!" "well, IT IS from this year's Spring collection! You HAVE to wear clothes sometime!"
Skye letting me know what she thinks of the dinner selection of the evening!
(Beau entertaing the girls.)
What do you have in the bag daddy? Let me see! Let me see! Let me see!
Beau took each of the girls for a ride in the big bag. Three out of four LOVED it and begged for more!
Rivr showing her pure joy of the event. Beau has also started reading the girls poems everynight after we put them in their cribs. we have found this way we really can read to them & it is not a battle for the lap or control of the book. Well by the third night, it was DEMANDED that "poems" be read. Skye & River read their own books, but listen, while JuJu tries to escape to get control of the book & Daddy's lap! Oh, and we have thankfully, had minimal escapes from our little gymnast!
I couldn't resist how cute these were. Skye had to wear these all day. She had to have her slippers on. How cute!
Well, yesterday the sun finally came back out again and we got out! THANK YOU MISS EMILY!!!!! She came over on her day off and we took the girls to this little area that reminds me something of Greenich Village or a very modern European neighborhood. So we put the girls on their leashes, I mean their backpacks & walking we went! Of course we had to stop and get some pastries and the little outdoor cafe. Look at what big girls they are--No booster & No highchair!!!! Woohoo, a part of life just got alittle simplier!
Right by the area with the cafe & lots of cute (but very pricey shops) is alittle pond with a huge fountain & some ducks. The girls were fascinated with it! Thank God I had their "backpacks" on them, or Skye would have had a few dips in the water. She was sooooo determined! Even with that she still almost went in head first! Funny things on our adventure were Skye & JuJu using the walking ramps & walls as if they were fancy Little Gym apparatuses. JuJu used the rails on the ramp as a swinging bar, yelling "weee" and Sky walked on the side walls of the ramp as if it was a balance beam and jumped off at the end going "weee, yeah!". Of course, since we hadn't been out in awhile like that in public, I forgot how many questions & looks you have to field. But we did run into this wonderful family with twin boys. Their dad Ivan, wanted to get pictures of all of the kids together. They are the cutest little boys, Filp & Stefan. It was so nice to meet ya'll!
