I'm still here...

Sorry all- life has been ummm let's just say shitty...stomach bug x3 in this house. I don't remember being so ill since I was little (I did not make a pot of coffee for 5 days-WOW) and I hate seeing my little ones sick- rough year for stomach bugs. But we seem to be in the clear now. Time to Lysol and bleach my house from top to bottom since bodily fluids were flying all over this place! YUCK!
Quick updates:
  • Today is Sophia's first soccer practice- hope to have some pictures up tomorrow!
  • Happy Birthday to me-34 oh my!
  • Charlie got me the best birthday gift ever...his first tooth!

Sophia ROCKS!

This pretty little girl is so awesome! We went to our cousin Noah's birthday party at an indoor rock wall place and I was blown away by her! Sophia is a very determined little girl, when she she wants something, she gets it! This can be good or bad depending on the situation...with rock walls it is GOOD!
When we got there and Sophia saw the wall, I saw the glint in her eyes. She told me "I'm going to try and try and try my best to get to the top." When I saw the 2nd grade boys struggling, I had my doubts. But she proved me wrong and made it. It took her a couple of tries and each time she would come down and tell me she was figuring it out and she would make it higher the next time...she did! Not only did she climb the beginners wall (angled in a little), she also made it to the top of the intermediate wall(straight up) AND half way up the hardest (angled out). If I wasn't bragging before, I am now...This kid freakin' ROCKS!!!! She was soooo good, the instructors were shocked that she was only 4 1/2 and the one said she had never seen a kid that young make it to the top. She listened and did exactly what the instructors told her to and she kicked butt! I was so proud of her and most importantly she was so proud of herself.

Getting started!

Halfway up!

She made it!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect form coming down!

My favorite action shot!
Abby tried too...She didn't make it far, but she is only 2 and it made for some really cute pictures!!!!

In her itty bitty harness...

Ready to go (ignore the instructors odd hairy leg)

Climb on little one!!!

Easter Pictures

We spent Easter with Mima and Grandpa Freddy, they set up and awesome egg hunt outside, the girls had a blast!

The Easter Bunny left silly flower headbands for the girls.

Daddy and Simon, very early Easter morning (tired, but so cute)

Sorry I've been busy.

I'm still here...just been a bit busy lately. Sometimes 4 kids take all my energy and every spare moment. Other times I let them cry and pretend they aren't there, just kidding- kind of. Here's the low down- boys are getting big and crawling and cruising all over and quickly. Charlie is on the verge of walking any day now, Simon isn't far behind. Simon had found his voice and loves to scream- happy screams and he is saying lots of things, not quite words but lots of cool sounds including dadaadadaada very cute and Charlie makes noises but not as many a Simon. So one day soon Charlie will be walking and Simon will tell you all about it. The girls are fantastic and amusing as always. Oh exciting news...we finally got video camera so as soon as i figure it out I can put video clips up on the blog and you can hear their little voices whenever you want!

Charlie getting clean in the sink!

Looking guilty- what's he playing with under the water?

"This is a washcloth Mommy, you should try it!" When I'm busy, showers seem to not be a priority...stinky Mommy!

Happy Simon- he loves the sink bath!

Love those dirty faces!!

Abby and her newest dress up outfit!

"Look what I can do"

And look I'm still creative, this is the diaper cake I made for my friends baby shower- isn't it adorable!
