Sooooooooo Big!




Daisy is 2 months old now! I can't believe it! She weighed 10lbs 13oz at her 2 month doctor visit (that's 50th percentile). She is such a good girl and we are all really enjoying her! This was the 1st photo shoot with her beautiful smile. She's wearing the darling outfit from Grandma Lindy. She is already very good at putting up with me and my photo shoots!

A Musical at The Oswald Theater

The other day the kids put on a play for me. It was called "Thunder Mountain"
Lily was a princess who lived on top of the mountain and she was waiting for a prince to come and marry her.
Ashton and Bailey were cowboys "Smith" and "Big"
They had horses and little pistols.
The first musical number was Smith and Big singing about how they were going to marry the princess:
"I'm going to marry the princess" sang Smith
"No, I'm going to marry the princess" sang Big
"No I am"
"No I am"
"No I am"
"No I am"
Lily had music from her piano playing and she would whisper the words to the boys before they sang.
Then both the cowboys raced up the mountain to ask the princess to marry them.
Next the princess sang about how she couldn't marry the cowboys because she wanted to marry a prince. And she was sorry but she wasn't that "in" to horses. Lots of singing "I'm sorry!" over and over! Eyes closed, arms outstretched.
The same music as the cowboys' song played on the piano, just different words.
And that was the end. I really had to contain my laughter! They did a great job with very little rehearsals. Oh, my silly kids!

Recently












Bailey popped the lenses out of his sunglasses and wears them like this now. I think he's pretty handsome!!












Daisy is doing a lot of growing! She is smiling a lot and testing out her voice. Getting ready for coos! I think she looks a lot like her big sister!










Lily played a dust bunny in The Princess and the Pea. She did an excellent dust bunny ballet!!!!

This is a song that Ashton learned at school. He sings it to Daisy when she gets upset. These are HIS words to the song:



Minnie Mouse

Nice Manners in the house

When she sips hers milk, she never makes a mess


Mud Pies never stain hers dress!




I think he's very funny!!!!!!!

First Blog







I've been wanting to start a blog for a while. I'm hoping it will be an easy way for me to keep track of the funny things my kids say/do. And also for friends and family to check out what we're up to!




So I will start with our most recent excitement. Our Baby Daisy! She is so much fun and all the kids LOVE her. They beg to hold her all the time and get mad when she's sleeping, eating, or being fussy! Here are some of her first pics:
