Here They Grow Again!!

She’s 10 months old now and my baby isn’t much of a baby any more. She is walking! She is running! She has started climbing on things. She climbs up on our step stool and onto her little toy piano. She even managed to climb into the empty bathtub!  She also crashes a lot and she has the bumps and scrapes to prove it. I know she thinks she has to keep up with the rest of her siblings!

My two-year old is blossoming into a big girl too. She still wants to snuggle, but she can tell us what she wants and she can tell us what is wrong.  I lose track of the times when she gets mad at her siblings, and she runs to me and says so-and-so is “being mean to me!” Just today her Daddy said “You’re being mean to me,” and she snapped back at him, “Where is my pizza!”

My sassy sweetheart is three and still wears her heart on her sleeve. She’s still got a plethora of stuffed animal that are all hers.  Even the animals that are not hers are hers. She gets her feelings hurt and she doesn’t forget easily. Three is the year of power struggles, and these days most of them are about eating what is on her plate and sharing.

My little boy is getting more independent every single day. He still says the funniest things and he makes everyone laugh. There are very few things that make him upset or cause him to lose his cool and when he does get upset he is quick to bounce back with a smile.

My big kid is a First grader. He is growing and thriving school.  He is super independent and doesn’t like to ask for help with anything. He very particular about his routines. He gets an idea in his head and he wants to do it.  He forgets that he is bigger and stronger when it comes to his younger siblings. His imagination amazes me and soon I am going to start working on a book of his Pobe stories.

Today and every day I just want to enjoy my kids as much as humanly possible! They are amazing!

We’re Going Crazy

How about a purple sweatshirt and a romper worn around the waist instead of pants? I am pretty sure this is not going to catch on as a new fashion any time soon, but when you are one and figuring out how to dress yourself anything goes! I didn’t notice Eliana in the background chewing on a baby toy until I was editing these photos to share. Why do kids always chew on things?

Later Isabel put on her big brother’s shoes. I have to confess that the reason she is wearing green sweatpants with a pink t-shirt is because she took off the tan capris that she was wearing and I could not find them any where! She’s one and from the previous photo you can tell how much she worries about what she is wearing.

Danielle found her feet this past week!

Before bedtime I wanted to take a photo of everyone in their pajamas. It looks like Eliana is texting instead of looking at me. It is a toy cell phone.  Just in case you were wondering, Eliana is wearing Transformers pajamas. Joshua outgrew them and she loves them! We only let them watch the cartoons. She does have 2 older brothers after all.  I told them to say, “pickles” but instead they were yelling, “PICKLES!”

I forgot to bring my camera remote to the bedroom with me, but I wanted to get a photo of me with all the kids. This is the first photo that we took with my camera on a timer and it ended up being the best one.

At least four times a day Eliana asks, “Where we are going?”  The past couple times she has asked her Daddy replied, “Crazy. Want to come?” This morning after she got dressed she kept asking very seriously if it was time to go to Crazy and saying that she wanted to go to Crazy now.  Our life is definitely crazy good!
