I quite often find myself referring to my children as either "my favorite girl in the whole world" or "my favorite little boy..." Riley can keep her title, but with another little boy due to arrive any day now, I'm going to have to think of a new way to refer to my soon-to-be TWO favorite boys!
This little guy is wild and crazy and silly and fun, and he loves to sing!! He sings for hours and hours and hours every single day.
And this little sunshine.... she starts year two of preschool next week, and she is sooooo excited! She can't wait to meet her teacher, and see all her friends, and make new friends! And this year her brother will be joining her at preschool too! He's a little less excited though, we'll see how that goes...
Sometimes, the two of them are just so incredibly cute together I just want to bottle it up forever. Not all the time, but when it happens, it just makes me so very happy.
Riley found her daddy's goggles today and was pretty excited. But soon decided that she really needed her own goggles on...
I asked her if she could take her goggles off for a few pictures, and her response? "Ummm no mommy I can't, my goggles are a part of me!!" Ohhhhhhhkay then!
We discovered today that Jack is extremely afraid of bees (and cannot distinguish between a bee and a fly). He was picking and smelling flowers, and a bee flew by. This sent him into hysterics, and then anytime any flying bug came near him, he panicked!
Really though, it's nothing a Grandma cuddle can't fix.
Jacky loves trying to break the code to get into daddy's phone. This usually results in daddy getting locked out of his phone for a while.
Tonight for dinner Mark and Jackson made pancakes. Jacky loves to help with each and every step, and the kid eats more pancakes than anyone else in the family! He LOVES his pancakes!
Riley's current absolute favorite activity is going in the hot tub with me. We have it set pretty low, so it's more of a warm bath temperature, which makes it comfortable even when it's warm outside. She loves to jump and splash and swim, basically anything but sit and relax.
My little floating fishy!!! Well... sort of floating, sort of sinking.
Gotta admit, I really enjoy going in the hot tub with her most evenings! Not exactly relaxing per se, but I love it just the same. :)
In other news... Baby Bartlett #3 due one week from Thursday!!
