Let the dying begin!
Very nice. Just place it in gently.
Nooo! Don't just drop it in! Wait...calm down Mommy. We're outside...on newspaper...everything will be okay...
Our beautiful eggs...before John's second round of dying where they turned nice and brown
The girls were content to eat Cheerios and watch from the sidelines

Also, I may be jinxing myslef by posting this, but John has gone 3 days with NO accidents. He has been wearing his big boy underwear all day except for naptime. I haven't even been asking him if he needs to use the potty. He just announces when he has to go and takes off. Wish us luck that this streak continues.

Rebecca babbling at me
Mommy wanted to do the girls hair, so Natalie got a pony tail...
and Rebecca got pigtails. (Who needs toys when you have a comb?)
John was not very happy when the girls decided they wanted to play trains too.
"Oh, Mommy! Look at me! My hair is beautiful!"
"Yeah, I know I'm cute."
What a cool kid. For some reason John calls these his Santa Glasses...but they have frogs on them...and he didn't get them from Santa...I have no idea.

Natalie - 11 months
Rebecca - 11 months
We signed John up for another session of swim classes and he is doing great. He's not quite swimming by himself, but he tries. If he has a noodle he can lay on it and swim around pretty well. The weather was so nice yesterday so we took advantage and spent a majority of the day outside. John got to ride his Escalade around the yard and we took a nice long walk. So long that John got exhausted and wanted to be carried. Carrying a 3 year old and pushing a double stroller is not an easy feat, so he ended up sitting on the handle of the stroller and holding on to me while I pushed. We got a lot of smiles and waves as we made our way back home. :)
John is starting to repeat everything he hears, which can be cute...but can also be not so good. He said his first bad word the other day. He repeated it a few times and I just let it go thinking maybe he was mispronouncing something. Finally, I realized what it was and told him "That's not a nice word. We don't say that." He replied with "Daddy does." :) Daddy has since been VERY good about censoring himself around the kids. I must admit, I was a little relieved when he said that and not, "Well, you say it." Now... if he starts yelling "USE YOUR BLINKER!" I will know exactly where that came from. We had a cute conversation in the car the other day. He wanted one of his kids cds on, so I opened the holder to let him pick.
John: I want the purple and green one
Me: Um, that's Jimmy Hendrix
John: Yeah. I love Jim and Rex
Me: Alright...(turned on the cd)
John: Ohhhh, Mom. I LOVE this.
It was definitely nice not listening to Mickey Mouse and Raffi again and again and again. He has since given up on his love for Jimmy though. Maybe I'll have to introduce him to the Beatles. He'd probably like their early stuff. Here are a few pics of the kids
Rebecca playing with (eating) her monkey
Rebecca was so intent on getting something out of the toy box that she almost went in head first. She had both feet off the ground and was teetering on the edge.
