Nonna and the girls

Looks like I have not posted in a while - that is because I have two crazy girls both walking and going in different directions ALL day long. Oh then add a high energy 3 year old to the mix and hmmm well that is my day. And why didn't anyone tell us that 3 is SO much harder then 2?? My goodness I feel like all we do is discpline all day long, and they are so smart they just know how to get you. Hopefully it will pass soon because he is driving us crazy! The girls are absolutely nuts, I really didn't think walking would be too much different since they have been crusing for a while now but it is a lot different. Morgan is into everything - the pantry door was open a crack and I watched her, she took her hand and knew exactly how to open it and in a matter of seconds had taken about 10 things off the shelf all onto the floor. Then goes onto another room to see what she can get into there. Needless to say we headed to Babies R Us today to get some good gates. We asked Cooper where we should put the gates and he said he thought we should put the gates and the girls outside. Well the weather is getting nice hmmmm. Hopefully I will get some good pics this week of the girls walking and I will post them.

Crazy Cooper

So yesterday we were all getting ready to go out, we told Cooper to go get dressed he grabbed the wrong pair of jeans and comes out to us looking like this - yes these are the girls jeans! We cracked up laughing he actually got them over his legs and around his waist but couldn't quite get them buttoned up. He is a mess!

2 Hours Flat....

Well thanks for all the support, it is over. I finished my first(and last) half marathon (13.1 miles) My goal was A. To finish and B. To finish in 2 hours. So I am very proud and glad it is done! I trained for 4 months and it all paid off. I have to say it was a lot harder than I expected the course was extreamly hilly at one point I thought I was running up a mountain! (ha ha!) Stephen and the kids were their cheering me on at the half way point and then waiting for me at the finish and I think that is what got me thru it. From now on I will stick to 10k's and 5k's this marathon stuff will kill ya!

Summer weather!

Today was just perfect weather - about 78 degrees and sunny. We spent most of the day outside playing. Cooper spent a lot of time collecting caterpillars which seem to have taken over out backyard. He is 100% boy - if it wasn't caterpillars it was covering himself with sand or digging in the dirt. Morgan's top teeth have finally decided to come thru, they have been showing for over a month now but just didn't break the skin, hopefully she will find some relief now. Maddi's are still showing but have not broken thru quite yet. They have both now tried to eat mulch, rocks, sand and pineneedles, they really like chewing the rocks and mulch the best. They are nuts, they put everything in their mouths, hopefully they will learn soon. I think we must be starving them; poor things. Hopefully the weather stays nice outside I have so many new summer outfits for the girls that they have to start wearing before they grow out of them! I updated the picture page again tonight - more to come.

We love to walk!

Well - it has bee a while since I have updated. Let's see both girls are VERY mobile now, they are taking about 7-10 steps at a time then they fall on their bums gracefully. If we turn for a minute they are gone, we caught Morgan playing in the toilet water last week, thank god it was clean!! She is just a wild one, she screams and chases Cooper around the house;it is too funny. They still do this funny crawl where they use one leg and one arm and fly around the house finding anything and everything to stand up on. They are really starting to communicate to eachother as wel,l mostly when we leave them in a room by themselves, they look at one another and "talk." Sometimes they like to see who can be louder (Maddi wins these days) and other times they just laugh at eachother. It is so fun to watch. They still love food(imagine that!) and want to try anything that we are eating. Morgan loves to read books, every morning after her bottle she goes over to the books and picks a few out and sits and turns the pages, sometimes she eats them as well but mostly likes to look at the pictures. I swear she can say apple, Stephen thinks I am crazy but she has said it to me at least 5 times, even Cooper heard it. Of course she won't do it on demand but I will get it on video one day. Cooper is doing well - he is off from school this week, trying to keep him busy but he has a lot of energy, I am exhausted by the end of the day keeping up with all 3. My half marathon is on Saturday, I am getting nervous....I am just ready to get it over with. Check out the picture pages I have been trying to update them each week.
