The girls and I have been staying with Grams and Grandad this week. Ryan went back home Sunday, but we decided to stay for the week to visit since we didn't have any pressing issues at home. So, Grams has been sewing and making all kinds of cute things for Sofie and let me just say, she is a very cute model. Sadie said that one is for Sofie and Grams make Sadie one, so now Grams has to make something for Sadie. We have done quit a bit this week. Saturday we went to Fayetteville to visit with Uncle Jeff, Aunt Beth and their kids. We had such a good time. Sadie FINALLY allowed someone to trim her hair and I got some blonde (woohoo!). It was very interesting to drive back at midnight in all that snow. That was a very long car ride home. On Tuesday we took the girls to the Library. Sadie had a very good time, but not because of the books. She enjoyed playing with all the kids. I guess that is something I don't realize she is deprived of being at home with me until we are around other kids her age. She threw a major temper tantrum when it was time to leave. I had to literally hoist her up on my side and carry her out of there kicking and screaming. My new goal is to get her around kids her own age at least one day a week so we can avoid this in the future. Any ideas on keeping an almost 3 year old entertained are welcomed and appreciated! Thursday we are going dress shopping. She is going to be the flower girl in my sister Paige's wedding in June. I cannot wait to see her all dressed up! She will definitely think she is a princess then.
After seeing several people's links on facebook, I decided it was time to get a blog for our family so everyone can see how the kids are growing and changing everyday. Kale will be 9 in September and that makes his daddy feel extremely old! Sadie will be 3 in June, my how the time has gone by! Sofie was born December 30, so she's the newbie!
Big brother still doesn't know what to think about either of his sisters. He had just started to get use to the fact of one sister and now he has two...bless his heart! Sadie loves her big brother like crazy. She asks us where he is everyday and when will he be at her house. Her face lights up like the fourth of july when we tell her he is on his way. When it comes to Sofie, Sadie is very protective. She either insists you hold her baby sister or cries because you are holding her. Sofie is still just taking it all in.
We cherish every moment spent with the three of them and can't wait to add more little mooneys to the list! (I am sure Ryan hopes it is a boy...they are being overtaken!)
