Sticks and Buckets

Sticks and buckets are wonderful drums when you are singing songs outside! They sang hit songs like "ABC's", "Twinkle Twinkle" and many more!

And of course Daphanie would have to lick the stick at least once..

This baby loves the noise, or I mean the sweet music of her big sisters!

Last Day of School 2011

Lilly had her last day at Casa Montessori. I am really sad that we will have to find her a new preschool when we move! Casa was wonderful for her! She learned a lot and made wonderful friends! She was really upset when I told her it was her last day, but is also excited in the fact that summer is here! Check out this post and see her on her first day of School here!

Tonsillectomy, Adenoidectomy and Ear Tubes

Lilly was seen by the ENT doctor last month and he was surprised how big her tonsils were and that she was even able to eat! I also let the ENT doctor know that she failed a hearing test, they tested her ears and they were also surprised how well she talks for not being able to hear clearly, since her ears are filled with fluid. So he set us up for Surgery to remove the tonsils, adenoid and put tubes in her ears.
Here she is before surgery, really not knowing what is going to happen. You could tell she was excited to be some where new, but nervous too!

They also gave her Jessie doll a name bracelet/belt so she wouldn't get lost and so Jessie could go with Lilly to surgery.

Here she is in the Pediatrics. She was in pain and not very happy. She was kind of out of it with the pain meds they have given her after surgery. She kept looking at the red light on her thumb, which was to measure her oxygen levels.

She had a dry cough so they ordered a breathing treatment to help decrease the swelling in her airway. It helped!

She kept telling us she wasn't tired, but during this picture she was dozing off. I took the crayon away from her and she grabbed it back and kept coloring with her eyes closed!

She had to do 4 things before she could leave. Bathroom, Walk, Drink 16oz and have pain under control. We finally had all of them checked off by 6pm. She was excited to go home, and I was happy to get her home to make her comfortable in her own space!

Penelope @ 4 months

This Christmas Baby turned four months the day after Easter!
Penelope was 13lbs 5oz (50%) and 23.5 inches long (25%) at her four month appointment last week! She received her vaccines and had a fever for a few days.
She is a very very very HAPPY baby! She loves to sleep, which mostly takes place in her swing! So she loves her swing! Loves laying under the play mat and looking up at all the toys! She loves to suck on her hands, fingers, toys and her bottom lip! Her eyes have lighted up a lot since birth and are now the same color as the big girls and daddy, which is a light blue! She can roll from her tummy to her back. You wont catch her rolling from her back to her belly, she would rather hang out on her side. She also loves watching TV. We don't have it on often so when it is on she is looking up at it!


These kids are goofy, see below!

Rain Boots to Mud Boots

The girls were outside playing while Corey was working on building the deck. They found out how to turn the water on, so they grabbed the hose and started to play! Rain boots can definitely be used to play in the mud! They sure enjoyed it!
Thick, oozy mud! We can't go over it. We can't go under it...

We've got to go THROUGH it! Squelch squerch!

Don't worry these kids are washable!

Good Morning!
