Red White Game

Seth was pretty excited to take the girls to spring practice today. It was pretty hot and they were all bored within 30 minutes, but it was still fun.
I think it made him miss his favorite football friend Joe.

When will I learn?

Oh I remember this like it was yesterday. Seth and I were downstairs holding the newborn twins enjoying the quiet. Thinking that Bella and Claire were watching a movie upstairs. But we came up shortly after to find Claire looking like this:

Then a few days ago I found Syd looking like this:
The worst part about this was I was right there the whole time. Since we were potty training I had a movie on in my room so we could be right by the bathroom. Bre was sitting with me on the bed and I thought Syd was just on the ground quietly enjoying the show.
Nope. She was enjoying the sprinkles she had found in the pantry.
I get asked all the time if the twins have behavior like Claire and after this I might have to say yes!

Potty Training Twins

Raise your glass....of Coke!
Potty training this time around has been much different than before.
For starters having 2 who basically go at the same time has been interesting. From the time these two were born they were on the same schedule with diaper changes, and going potty has been no different.
Luckily I have 2 potty seats. Bella and Claire used different ones so it's come in handy to have them both now.
I don't really have anything to complain about. It's been pretty easy. On the first day Syd had no accidents and Bre had 4.
It probably also helped that for lunch they got Sunkist to drink and then while they were on the potty I shared my Coke.
I never would have done this with my other kids, but hey you do what ya gotta do!

Easter 2012

We had a fun Easter this year. Multiple Easter egg hunts, multiple egg dying's and lots and lots of candy and fun!
Bella was so sure she was going to catch the Easter bunny. She even left her door open, but she didn't see him.
Everyone with their baskets
That huge basket was for both the twins because Syd lost hers at another event.
Bella looks so much bigger than everyone else because she's sitting on 2 pillows.

April Fools Day 2012

Bella was so cute about April Fools Day. Last night when I was tucking her in she was already thinking if ways she could trick Seth.
Then this morning she came into my room with the plan she had thought of. Take shredded cheese and dye it yellow to look like scrambled eggs, top it with strawberry jam as the ketchup, then sprinkle with sugar for the salt. But the thing she was most proud of was her idea to mix milk and sprite. she was so excited telling Seth she was making him breakfast in bed. The smile couldn't be wiped off her face. She made so much noise as she was preparing everything, but it was so cute. And Seth did a great job pretending he had no idea it wasn't really scrambled eggs.
Oh I love that girl!!
