Brush 'um, Brush 'um

Brushing teeth is a VERY exciting time in our household.  Harrison had been watching Addie do it for quite some time and one night he decided to climb up on the footstool and pretend he was brushing his teeth.  So when he actually grew some teeth - I let him give it a try.  Now, every night, both kids squeal with excitement as they take turns brushing their teeth.  It's really quite cute :)

Addie's First Dance Recital

I was so excited to watch her do her little ballet routine.  We had been going to ballet lessons at the YMCA for 8 weeks and the parents are not allowed in the room or even OUTSIDE the room.  So I had no clue what the heck she was doing in this class.  So at the end of the 8 week session, the teacher announced that the girls (2-5 year old range) would do a skit the last 5 minutes of the class.  I was ready:  camera ready to go.  It was a little routine with teddy bears and Addie was doing great!!!!!!  Then, I think she realized that there were a lot of people watching her and she freaked out.  She didn't want to keep going, but I convinced her to keep trying.  But the rest was just plain HILARIOUS.  You have to see the video to get the full effect.  She just laid on the ground and flopped around :)  Oh well - I had to remind myself she was only 2 1/2 and it was a priceless video to have.  She was very cute - even if she was lying on the ground :)

Time on our favorite sofa

This is their favorite hang-out spot.  It just so happens to be right in front of the TV :)

Snack time!!!

I love my kids - I really do.  They are stinkin' cute.  They love sitting at their little table and eating snacks.

Happy Valentine's Day

The kids had a great time opening up their little trinkets and Addie got a special pink rose from Daddy :)  We had a candlelight dinner and all - a perfect Valentine's night with my family!

2 Teeth!!!

I thought they would NEVER come in - that I would have a gummy baby forever.  But, behold, his first tooth arrived a few days before his 1st birthday and the second one just a few days later.  It's really hard to capture these teeth so I had to do so in a fleeting moment :) #3 makes it's debut this summer!!!!

Wow!  What a shock - what a surprise!  But we finally have our heads wrapped around the idea of a 3rd child and "3 under 3" and are excited to meet our LAST and FINAL baby this August :)  The due date is around the 10th of August and we don't know the sex yet.  But once again Addie has bestowed a name upon the baby in my tummy:  "Birdie".  And so it is :)
