I went to town taking pictures of the kids this evening. I was trying to catch Eli's smile. It is tricky since, unfortunately, it usually disappears once a camera comes out. I will share a few pictures with you. Eli is growing up too quickly! He loves to stand.... so he is very content in his little toy. He is a happy boy. He likes to give kisses, talk, suck his thumb, and play with his feet. I am lucky to have the two cutest kids ever :)
Where on earth have the last 3 years gone? My sweet baby girl turned 3 today! She is such a funny, sweet, sassy, stubborn, loving girl! She makes me laugh and, yes, sometimes want to pull my hair out. But I love this girl and am so grateful I get to be her Mom. I know I mess up A LOT... but she has somehow turned out pretty great so far!
She LOVES to sing. Some of her favorites to sing right now are: The Veggie Tales Theme Song, God is Bigger Than the Boogie Man, Do As I'm Doing, When I am Baptized, I am a Child of God. I have tried to capture her cute little singing voice on film, but she is not cooperative!
She LOVES Peter Pan and Disney Princesses.
She loves to pretend to be other people. Today she was pretending to be Darth Vader, "Give yourself to the dark side." (Complete with Vader breathing)
She is scared of owls, and birds and sneezing puppies and kitties, and grass and sticks. I don't know why she is afraid of most of these things but we have to pray everyday to be kept safe from them.
She loves people! She makes friends so quickly.
She is fighting potty training like none other. GRRRR! She will do a funny walk after she has peed in her diaper now.
We found out today what an adrenaline junkie she is! We went to Trafalga and she was ready to ride all the rides all by herself. Her favorite was the Frog Hopper... it lifts you up high and then bounces you up and down. She rode it at least 5 times. Then as we were walking to the car she said, "Oh... we forgot to ride the big Frog!"
Tom and I have been married since 2007. We are the parents to a beautiful little girl and a handsome little boy. Tom is working and going to school. I am able to stay home with Aileah and Eli, while watching 2 other children. I have a pretty great life!
