Happy Birthday Sophie!

Our sweet Sophie turned 3 on April 22nd! We started out the day by making
blueberry muffins together!

Grandma Bicki came by to give Sophie a few birthday gifts!

Of course, a Dora balloon!

A Sophie sized cake

Eating a Snow White cookie (more sugar ;)

Sophie with her balloons & June doll (grr... the picture didn't turn again)

We ate a Chick-A-Way (Sophie's language) for dinner. It was family night so they had a balloon guy & face painting. Sophie also had ice cream (more sugar...)

When we got back we sang Happy Birthday to her & she blew out her candles. Here she is super excited about being sung to (she loves it when people sing Happy Birthday).

Can you see the effects of all the sugar?!?!?! ;)

I can't believe that Sophie is 3 already!! I remember the day that she was born- we were all just thrilled for her to arrive!!! We were so thankful that God blessed us with a healthy little girl! She brings so much joy & entertainment to our family!

Her official party is next weekend - stay tuned for more pictures!

What Libby Does with Her Food

When Libby doesn't like something or is done eating - she puts her food in strange places! I've caught her putting food in her hair, mashing it in her ear, sticking it in her shirt sleeve, putting it on her shoulder, & sticking it up her nose!

I've only caught a few with the camera. Here she is strategically putting pears in her hair.
Here she's putting turkey meat in her ear. (Sorry I didn't turn the picture - I tried but it didn't work)

She's one funny little gal!

Max at 6 weeks

Our lil' man had his 6 week check-up with our midwife, Sorani.
He weighs 12 lbs. 1 oz. & is 22 3/4 inches long.

Let's compare this lil' chunk to the girls:
Sophie at 6 weeks: 11 lbs. 4 oz & 22 inches
Libby at 7 weeks: 9 lbs. 14 oz. & 21 3/4 inches

I'm curious as to how lil' Max is going to look...
Will he be super chubby like Sophie or little bitty like Libby?!?!
Looks like he's passing Sophie up as far as his weight at this point!!
Is it possible for a baby to be chubbier than Sophie was?????
I didn't think so... but we'll see!!

Here's a couple of pictures to jog your memory.....

Sophie at 4 months:
She had rolls everywhere! Her Uncle Luke called her "Rolls Royce".
Her Uncle Rhett asked me if the doctors said it was OK that she was that chubby! Ha!

Libby at 5 months. She's our petite lil' girl!

Sweet Max at 6 1/2 weeks:

Mama Singing?!?!

Today I was responding to one of my friends on Myspace. When I went to her page she had a Kari Jobe song playing. Sophie had been talking, talking, talking while sitting right next to me. When the song started playing, Sophie got really still & quiet. I looked at her & she said (in the most angelic voice) "that's you singing, mama!" It was so sweet! Now if you have ever heard Kari Jobe's voice - it's beautiful! And basically - I can't sing to save my life!


I've Been Tagged

My friend, Kerry, recently tagged me on her blog.

Here are 7 things you may not know about me:

1. All five of us have a "2" in our birthday. Matter of fact, Libby is the only one with any other number at all. Aaron: July 2, Me: August 2, Sophie: April 22, Libby: December 27, & Max: March 2. When I was overdue with Max - my friend Missy said that he had to be born on March 2 because of all of our birthdays have a 2 in them! She was right! :) (Our sweet baby Chloe's birthday is January 10 - no 2...)

2. I have an obsession with trees. Yes, trees. Anytime we drive into a neighborhood with big established trees - I always comment on them. I love them & wish we had them. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate our 2 stick trees in the front yard that will be big in probably 15-20 years :(

3. I love it when Aaron takes a new route home. I love to just look out the window & check everything out. He has said that I look like a dog going for a ride - just staring out the window! Although, I don't hang my head out the window with my tongue hanging out! Ha! I told my mom that he said that & one day we were in the car together & she said "Ha! You kind of do look like a dog just staring out the window!" Nice...

4. I would love to open a coffee house/breakfast place where lil' old folks come everyday to drink coffee and talk. I think it would be neat to hear their stories!

5. I LOVE fried pickles! I know - sounds pretty disgusting, huh? But if you've ever had one - you, too, know how good they really are!!

6. Although I was a High Hat (our high school dance team), I feel like a fish out of water on the dance floor! They are two totally different things - structured dance vs. freestyle dance. I loved being in High Hats - but feel COMPLETELY awkward on the dance floor.

7. I am directionally challenged. Severely directionally challenged. Let's just leave it at that.

Well, there you have it! I'm supposed to tag 7 other people. So, Danielle, Rebecca, Kirsten, Amanda, Jessica, Krista, & Carri... consider yourself tagged!
