The Girls

Abrianna tears streaming down her cheeks, wailed "I feel discludded!" "Oh really?" I asked. "What does that mean?" "It means not being included!" she howled.

"Ouch! Abigayle That HURT!" I cried out after having my 25 lb girl plop unexpectedly onto my stomach. In a comforting voice she held out her arms and said, "Tome here... Tome here...." wrapping her arms around me in a comforting hug.

At six months old her learning is exploding. She says her versions of  "dada, a ma (momma), hi, and ni ni (night night). Yesterday she began waving. She's begun to inch across the floor commando style. When sitting in the bath tub she scootches along on her bottom.  Her size is a modest 16 lbs and 26 inches. Its about time to graduate to the next size of clothes as we had to do with diapers recently.

Family Sledding

Last Sabbath we tried to go sledding... without checking the weather forecast. Not a bright idea. Within minutes both the older girls were back in the van wailing about cold toes, fingers, and upset tummies. Emberley and I had stayed in the van cause it was snowing, 12 degrees, and she had just come down with a cold.  Two hours later, the boys returned after having a thrilling time sledding. Fast forward a week. We checked the weather this time and it was 29 degrees and sunny. Time to try again. This time everybody made it to the hill and went sledding. Oh, how we forget... Last year Abby was terrified of sledding on a tiny hill just down the road from us. This time she was semi-happy. She asked to go down the hill with momma a few times. But by the time we reached the bottom she was wailing in terror. Poor baby.

Lucas is old enough to handle the hills on his own.

Daddy was in his element.

Abrianna said it was hot and boy was that snow good!

After a ride down the hill on the new wild sled, he's a little worse for wear. His leg wound up under the sled on the way down the hill. But he jumped right back on and continued to sled.

Abby's thoughts on sledding... "Waaaaaa!!!!!"

New lens and first hair cut.

Abigayle 2 1/2.
I received an early birthday gift from my sweet husband... A new 50 mm camera lens. These are my first pictures I was experimenting with. Loved the catch lights from the window.

Emberley 6 month.

Abrianna had her first hair cut today. The results are a full head of CURLS! She's not losing them.
