April 2010

I have been very lazy about updating our blog here but as you can image we have been a very busy bunch. We have been busily updating our house and currently have no downstairs as we are having new hardwood floors and a new kitchen installed!

I am writing, though, because it is April again. And as you know that is a busy (do you see a pattern here?) month for us as both Madelyn and Cole's birthdays fall within 2 days of each other. We are amazed each day at how big the kids are getting.

Maddie is becoming quite the little lady (sometimes). She knows all about a lot of things. Right now she is learning how to write her letters and she loves to point out patterns everywhere. Maddie is 40.5 inches and weighs 34 lbs. She just got her hair cut short- she is very excited that she doesn't have to worry about snarls anymore and she chose her haircut herself!

Owen (don't want to leave him out just because his birthday isn't until December) is doing great! He is 37.5 inches and 32 lbs. He is learning his colors and shapes right now. Owen loves to draw, read books, play with his toys (particularly his tractor and helicopter) and loves to be with our puppy Bella. Owen is also practicing using the big boy potty sometimes!

Lastly, but not least, I can't believe that Cole is turning 1 in just 2 weeks! As I've said before, Cole joined right into our family with the utmost of ease. He has been such a happy and easy baby (not that the other 2 were not). He loves to watch, and now play with Maddie and Owen. He just adores them and laughs hysterically at anything they do. Cole has also been walking now for about 2 weeks! He is 23.5 lbs and is 29 inches long.

As I've done with Maddie and Owen, I've compiled pictures from Cole's 1st year and set them to music. Please enjoy pictures of "my little peanut" set to "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts.

Please check back soon to see a video of all the kids throughout this past year!
