Colored eggs.

Our first experience with coloring eggs was a blast.
Claire has been fighting a rough cold bug this past week and we haven't been able to get out of the house much. 
Lately, Claire is struggling with sharing attention with her Brother, so during nap time we had a Mommy/Daughter tea party & then colored eggs for Easter.
I loved it...Maybe even more than her.
Our eggs turned out pretty awesome and I even let her eat one after they had dried...even though the dye leaked through to the egg and made it a weird color...blah!
She enjoyed it, so that is all that matters.
Happy almost Easter!

A Day At the Park...

We celebrated the first days of nice weather with an outing to the park!  It was so great to leave the house and play with friends!  The babies loved the swings, the big kids mostly loved the snacks, and the mamas loved the conversation.  
I am so lucky I get to raise my kids with two of my best friends.

Somedays your sister attacks you with a marker and you hate your life a little.
But then she redeems herself at bath time and cleans your face for you.

Sweetest Friends

Claire and Paige are more like sisters than friends.
They fight, love, care for and boss each other.
I love these two together.
When you ask them who their best friend is they always say each other.

Potty Training!!

 We have ourself a Potty Trained Princess!
Claire is such a Rockstar!
We had intentions of just staying home all week to practice, but of course Claire did not like that idea.
We went out like normal and had a few hiccups.
By hiccups I mean pee...like a lot of pee...In my car...In the grocery store...at Grandmas house...
But, after a couple weeks of that she got the hang of it.
I consider myself so lucky because she pretty much did it on her own! 
So Proud of you Sweetie!

Brock Everett: 7 Months

 This sweet boy is 7 MONTHS OLD!! 
He is turning into quite the little mover!
Not only can he crawl everywhere now, but he is pulling himself up on everything now!
He is so proud of himself too.
So are we! 
I am a little bit in shock that he is already moving so much, but with a bigger sister to keep up with I was sure it was only a matter of time.
Mr. Brock is still waking up two times a night for feedings.
...sometimes three...we don't enjoy those nights.
But, I am hopeful that he will grow out of it.
He is so happy as long as he is moving and free, but the second you lock him up in his highchair or stroller or carseat he is very very...very unhappy.
Claire sings him "Twinkle, Twinkle" whenever he is sad.
We aren't telling her yet...but so far all it has done is make him cry louder.
Its the thought that counts!
We love this wild little man of ours!
