And on the table And on the Floor
And on our Faces And on our Clothes
And on our Mommy!
I’m “one of those moms” that thinks clothes are made to be washed, tables and floors are made to be scrubbed! Messes are “okay” at our house. We have found that our children love to be independent and through us giving them a little more leeway at the table, it’s taught them and us A Lot!! We like to strip them down to their diapers, put them in what might be the best invention ever (the Quad Table) and give them their food and let them feed themselves! We’ve even been known to give them a spoon and “see what happens!” Brave or stupid? Well, maybe both!! They gotta learn somehow; right?
Here are some Watermelon Pictures
(De-seeded by Daddy, of course!) Avery Caroline Gunner Cole Lauren Kathryn Cannon Gregory Hmm, this thing is GOOD! Yummy!!! Aaahhh, yeah! Dripping from G-Man’s Chin!! You can see the mess on the floor!
Notice there is none under Gunner’s seat!!!
I also made the mistake the other day of feeding
spinach with no bibs! Not a good idea!!!
(Yes, I’m the mean mom that makes my kids eat spinach!!
In my defense, they love it!) And, yes, we do own bibs and we LOVE them, but sometimes a little juice running down your belly is a good thing!
We’ve had the opportunity to have Laken come every Tuesday and Thursday to help out with the babies and with Hannah Noelle. And then our neighbors, Casey and Courtney Duncan, are always available to lend a helping hand too! Thanks girls, I’m sure gonna miss you when school starts back!!
Casey and Avery!
Courtney and Cannon!
Laken and Avery!
(Gunner is secretly her main squeeze so I’m not sure how I ended up without a picture of her and Big Boy!!)
We are almost completely moved in, it’s happening slowly but surely! It will take months to remember where we put everything and even longer to make sure it keeps going back in the same place! The babies have adapted amazingly well to their new surroundings so that has made it so much easier for us!
We are now in Party Planning Mode! I can’t believe they are almost a year old! Thanks to a horrible virus that took my laptop to computer Heaven, I no longer have my address book. Yes, I know I should have printed it off at some time, just thought of that too little too late! Please know that we want anyone and everyone that has an interest in coming to the party to please come! Come see the babies, let us give you a big hug for helping us through this year!! We’re SO thankful to SO many people that have been there in SO many different ways! We do, however, have a party request, NO PRESENTS!!!!! Your support has been a gift in itself!! If you feel you have to bring a present( which you DON’T!) please do diapers, wipes, food, those type things! But again, your support has been the gift we needed the most!!
After the invitations are completed I will scan one in so you can see just how stinkin’ cute they are! Here’s a sneak peek at the pictures I used though!!
