an update . . .

So life is flying by over here as it often does when there's a baby around. Getting up for feeds in the middle of the night, and trying to function with not enough sleep doesn't help much either. Thankfully I have two extra willing sets of arms to give me a break on a fussy day when nothing's getting done otherwise. Our busiest little one is of course the toddler lately - but thankfully she's also the one that takes a two hour nap break every day. She's been showing lots of interest in potty-training (every Mom's favorite task :p) but I'm not encouraging it as much as she'd like since our upcoming holidays include plane rides - and taking a toddler to a little plane bathroom over and over again does not sound like fun to me.

But I should mention that for as busy as she keeps me, she's definitely a lot of fun. She's always full of giggles, and suprises us with her vocabulary daily. She can sing most of her bedtime prayer and some of the Lord's prayer at dinner too. She loves her dolls and copying what Mommy does with Justin, and trying to keep up with with her big sisters. This morning she thought that the dryer was a great place to hang out (just her size!) - I think I may have to leave a load of laundry in it more often to discourage this habit (not that I want to get out of folding it or anything).And just because I don't like posting about my kids and leaving one out, I thought I'd post this cute pic of Chantel with one of her friends from her birthday party a couple weeks ago. Notice them both biting their nails? Two peas in a pod.

Cute - my two little ones can sing there bedtime prayers and it is priceless - isn't it funny how fast they can pick up things.
