Hailey had been trying for some time now to figure out how to do a somersault. Well, she finally got it! Hannah watched her and is slowly getting the idea. Although she is able to go over she doesn't get enough momentum behind her to go straight.

First Night In The Big Girl Bed

This evening the girls asked if they could sleep in the big girl bed. I didn't think that even for a moment they'd actually fall asleep but I decided that it was worth a try. They laid down side by side at the head of the bed, I gave them their kisses and then turned out the light. I was shocked that I didn't hear a ton of talking and giggling like I normally do. I was expecting them to come waltzing down the hallway at any moment. About thirty minutes passed and I went to check in on them and I came to find two beautiful sleeping angels.

Hailey was a little too close to the end for my comfort so I picked her up and moved her to the foot of the bed. I just sat and watched them for a few moments in awe at how peaceful they were and how proud I was of them for falling asleep so well.

I wish I could say they slept through the night in the bed but they did not. I was not too keen on them staying all night without a bolster and was also worried about the hyjinkx they would come up with if left to their own devises if they awoke in the middle of the night. So now, my sweet angels, are tucked back peacefully into their cribs. I want them to be my big girls...but not quite yet.

My Little Pony

The girls watch only one thing on the television for two reasons. 1. Because I do not allow them to watch much tv. and 2. Because it's the only thing they'll watch! Now mind you, at their Dad's house, they will watch other things but not at home. No...that'd be must to easy and less mind warping for Mommy. They got the movie from Aunt Tes with a pony for our birthday.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love the ponies as much or probably more than your average Joe but when I have it memorized and I think I hear it when there is no television on; that's a problem! I have literally watched My Little Pony-Meet The Ponies over two hundred times in the past few months. Without ponies life would be boring and without ponies there are meltdowns across the board. I am defiantely in a love/hate relationship with My Little Pony.

A Good Photo with Four Kids...Amazing!

My friend Gabby and her daughter Bella have come up to visit us. We went over to see Aunt Tes and PJ and eat dinner last night. Since we were over so late we bathed everyone. We were actually able to get all four kids on the sofa for a photo!

Our Day With Antonio

Today I watched Aunt Becky and Uncle Ismael's son Antonio for them. Although the day started out a little rough due to him being a new place with new people it went wonderfully. He is such a joy to be around and the girls absolutely loved having him around.

Me holding Antonio with Hannah in my lap and Hailey standing.

Hannah loves babies and she couldn't get enough of him. Every time he made a noise or moved she would run to his side and make sure he was okay. She also would give me status reports and tell me when I was doing something she thought was wrong or that I should do a different way.

Allow Me To Introduce...

Hailey's stink eye. I get this look a lot lately because, unbeknownst to me, my daughter is both smarter than me and is really a teenager in toddlers clothing.
