I needed to write all of this down before time had past and it was too late...you don't need to read it if you don't want to.
Josie is 4 1/2 now, she is so sweet these days. She has become an amazing little girl that for the most part wants to do whats right. She loves to sing, "Follow the prophet" and "Give said the little stream," all day long as loud as she can. One day she came up stairs and said she did something wrong and I came down stairs and she had used some chap stick to color on a door. I asked her why she did that and she said she didn't know why. I made her clean it up and she kept telling me she was sorry. I didn't get mad at her I was just happy she had told me. Josie loves to play outside with her friends. She's been riding her bike and is getting so fast on all three wheels. She colors and draws all day long. She can write her name all by herself and is learning her last name and phone number now at school. She loves school, I am scared for summer to have to keep her busy all day long. She has to be doing something all the time. I think its just the age. Josie is our little tatal tell. She'll always tell us if Carly is doing something wrong. Poor little girl gets picked on by her little sister all the time. Carly likes to put her feet on her just so she can hear Josie scream. Carly is a tease by nature just like her dad.
Carly is such a fun little girl. She has such a cute personality. She loves to dance and run around in her diaper. She gets really mad when you take things away from her temper tantrums at 1 and 1/2. She loves to jump off of things and she says, "HOP!" it scares me to death. She says, "No," to me most of the time when I ask her something but she doesn't say yes she nodes her head and moves her mouth without any words coming out, but moves her mouth saying ya. She's like a mime. Her hair is growing so long, its already below her shoulders. She can talk really well. She can say momma, mommy, dadda, ball, hot, car, HA, HA ( like on the Simpsons), gotcha (got ya), cracker, boppa (grandpa),nigh nigh,help, hop, down, stop, dog, me, no and probably more. She can say some animal sounds too moo, he he for a horse sound, quack, meow, bah, she says dog, dog instead of ruffing. She loves animals at a distance but when they get too close she freaks out. She loves to wrestle with her dad and growls sometimes. We went to Cabella's to look at all the animals the girls loved it and Carly made all the animal noises, I thought it was a little creepy. She doesn't like her uncle mason for some weird reason and won't even let him touch her. She's kind of weird around boys just like Josie was. She pretends to be shy around people she doesn't know but I guess that pretty normal. She's in nursery now and she did so well. One Sunday Elliot and I met in the hallway at the same time and he had told me that Carly did so well when he left her in Nursery. At that time we looked in the window and saw Carly with that look on her face, red as can be, you know the look. She was pooping, we were laughing so hard. It was as if she was telling us you tried to leave me nice try. HA! She runs really well but falls a little bit her right foot is turned in a little bit but the doctor said she'd grow out of that. She tells me to STOP! whenever I start singing and then I tell her to sing and then she says lalalalala...her's a video of it.
Here are a few pictures when we went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving point.
I just got a job at Great Clips. I have very mixed emotions about this. I've never wanted to work outside of the home until my kids were in school full time. It's only 12 hours a week and I can do less then that if it doesn't work out. If it doesn't work out I can always quit. That's what Elliot and I have decided. I'll be working at night so Elliot can watch the girls. My sister Michelle also said she would help out with my girls if I needed her. I just wish I didn't feel so guilty.
Mother's day was great, Elliot gave me breakfast in bed. French toast and orange juice my very favorite. I came down stairs and there was a rose with all my favorite candy bars around it and a bath and body smelly thing. Then we went to my parents and Elliot and my dad made dinner for us. Terriyaki chicken and all the fixings. It was a feast. It was a very good mothers day. Thanks honey.
