Our Peeps

Our kiddos are growing up way too fast! Joel is pulling his head and shoulders off the ground like he's already doing crunches! It's pretty funny to watch, plus he takes it pretty seriously. Ethan has become the family comedian. He's seriously one of the funniest kids I know. Sometimes I think he is making us laugh so he doesn't get in trouble, and hello! It's totally working. It's hard to discipline with that face looking at you! And Kayleigh is our little ballet princess, as always. She is an angel in the upcoming "Nutcracker" and is so excited about it. She's all drama and just the sweetest little girl. Yes, I think she's proven you can be both dramatic and sweet at the same time!

I thought I would also put a few of the highlights from the kids day to day doings:


He has rolled over a few times, but not with any real consistency, but he sure tries hard!

He laughs really big when you "throw him in the air."

He loves bath time. Really. Loves. Bath time. He just smiles and talks. So cute!

(how many times have we seen this face?!)

He pretty much always holds his pants up when he runs! Most of the time they are about to actually fall off. He's just so skinny! What a problem, huh?!

One of his most common new phrases is, "Of course I can!"

When we are listening to their Praise Baby DVD in the car, he says "haddahloolah" instead of hallelujah, pretty precious if you ask this momma!

He also sings "Hooley, Hooley, Hooley" with passion! Translated, "Holy, Holy, Holy!"


She is a ferocious writer. She is writing something alllllll of the time. Notes to people, pretend menus, pretend schoolwork. Anything. But always writing.

She is a total little momma. She loves taking care of her brothers. Sometimes she gets a little carried away, but her heart is in the right place.

She loves getting her picture taken. She poses, has her different smiles, etc. It's hilarious. We get such a kick out of watching her, she's a total natural. Hopefully this will not be a career choice, but she's beautiful and we adore her!
