Caught in the act!

The other day I manage to sneak a recording of Ethan singing to Sophia. He is so funny, love this kid!! He had no idea I was hiding around the corner with the camera.

Already 6 months!!


I just wanted to post some cute pictures of Sophia. She is growing so quickly and is already 6 months old. She can sit, still tumbles every so often, can say Mama(with some coaxing!) and loves to be with Ethan and Chloe. She is always smiling, making happy noises and still has a thick mop of dark brown hair. Her big blues eyes seem bigger by the day and when she smiles they smile too! She is really a beautiful little spirit and I love her to death!



Ethan's first day of First Grade!

 

The first week of first grade has come and gone and according to Ethan it was a good one. He really likes his teacher, Mrs Molnar, and he has already made some friends. Sadly only one girl from his kindergarten class is in his first grade class, so he is making alot of new friends!

 

Even though he said he has had a good week, he has already made not one, but two visits to the nurse. The first visit was on the first day. He was running around on the playground and collided with his buddy Tony, who kindly left two tiny teeth marks on his forehead.
 

His second visit was Friday. Apparently he sliding down the slide and somehow got kicked in the side which left a nice red mark. According to the nurses slip he delcined an ice pack, so I am guessing it wasn't too serious!
 

I feel really aweful as I forgot to take any pictures at Ethan's birthday party on Saturday. We did a fun back to school birthday party outside by the pool and everyone seemed to have a great time. We enjoyed some star wars cake, a lame star wars pinata and some water balloons. It was a great way to end the summer vacation. Maybe next year we'll just have one for fun and actually have Ethan's birthday party on or at least nearer to his actual birthday in May!

Catching up again!

Once again months have just flown by and I haven't had the chance to blog and share any of our news with ya'll! Sophia is currently napping and Peter and Chloe are at school with Ethan having lunch, so I thought I could squeeze in a quick update.

Ethan's T ball season has come to an end. He had a great time and improved tremendously. This Thursday we get to celebrate the season with a pizza party! Ethan also just celebrated his 6th birthday and is still loves anything and everything to do with the Ghostbusters. In fact for his birthday he got a "Ghostbusters" costume with the proton pack etc etc and he has a blast at home being a ghostbuster! He has never even seen the movie, not quiet age appropriate for him yet, but we do have the Wii game which he has mastered!



He also got to participate in his schools track and field day. Of course he had a blast and I must admit track and field day is alot different from when I was a kid, they have become very creative these days!

We also joined his class for a field trip to the zoo. I think Chloe enjoyed it more than he did as she got to hang out with all the older girls who doted on her!

Both Ethan and Chloe are also done with their swim lessons and we have had so much fun in the pool at home already!! They have more confidence and ability to swim without floaties.



Chloe is still loving her ballet class and she has a recital coming up in June which we are all super excited for. I will for sure post some pictures and maybe a video of the performance. What could be cuter than 2 and 3 year olds in "bunny" tutu's!!


Sophia is just growing by the day, wish I could slow it down!! She loves to smile and laugh and talk and talk. She is approaching 4 months and gets sweeter by the day! She loves to be in the pool with us and I will confess that I will probably dress my girls in matching outfits because it is so cute! So far Chloe loves it but I am sure it won't last very long!They have matching bathing suits and I think it's the cutest thing in the world!

Snow in Texas!!!

February 23rd, 2010:


Mom...it's COOOLLLDDD!!

Chloe chasing Ethan with a snowball!
View up our street!
Ethan making snow angels!

Chloe turned 3 in December!

With Christmas and Grandma's visit we had to postpone Chloe's third birthday party until the January, but it was worth it as she had a great time. She chose to have it at Build A Bear Workshop.

She wanted Tinkerbell cake, so we picked Tinkerbell and two of her fairy friends!


So we kinda cheated and instead of baking a cake because I knew we would have one at her party, we decided to take a drive over to Cheddars for a piece of their yummy chocolate cake.
On her birthday opening her gifts. Every girl needs a tea set!
