Unbelievable…

July 13, 2013

It’s unbelievable to me that yet another week has already come to an end.

The kids are still enjoying the Harry Potter series. We finished reading book #4 so family movie time was in order. Katie was sure to document the moment for us. I love it.

She does sleep once-in-a-while.

However, this is how she spends her days – mostly like this!

She desperately wants to crawl. She’s figured out the rock and often finds herself nose diving forward and planting into the carpet. Soon no doubt, her arms will move forward and her nose will no longer plant itself downward.

Her Godfather, Uncle Nick, a Lieutenant Colonel with the Army Jag Corp., would be proud of her form, but really she just gets frustrated that she isn’t going anywhere. Once-in-awhile we take pity on her and let her stand up.

She also loves the Johnny Jump-up. In fact, she’s really the first of our four that has spent more than mere seconds at a time in it.

Actually, Clare loves Elizabeth in this new toy. She’s so curious and LOVES to watch over her sweet sister. In fact, she has found that she can twist her up rather nicely and watch her spin out. Michael does this to Clare all the time on the swingset. Don’t you just love the expression and excitement on her face. “Mom-mom wook!”

She loves to get her picture taken AND look at it on the screen immediately afteward. I can’t say I mind. I tend to humor her when she wants to show off and let me photograph her…dirty face and all.

She loves the new swingset. Thanks to Daddy and Uncle Nick for making it happen. Thanks also to those who sent sweet Clare birthday money!

The kids spent several afternoons (after camp) building a lemonade stand with their friend and neighbor. I can’t wait to see the finished stand. They finished sanding and painting it in Reilly’s garage where it is stored until the end of the summer when they make their planned lemonade. This picture makes me so happy…the quintessential act of childhood.

Aunt Jenny gives the best haircuts and it’s always such a show-off moment when our little girls get their short haircuts and sport their perfectly straight locks with a perfectly even line at the base of their neck.

Michael served me by putting together our new fan. I’m so proud of him for figuring it out, going out to get the tools and needing help only to hold it stable while he screwed in the base. He’s getting so big and I’m thrilled in these moments when he can shine!

Katie and Gianna spent an hour putting together Katie’s room with new accessories. Gianna recently redid her room and was so generous to gift many accessories to her. We were all so surprised and delighted to see their design come to life. How fun. Hopefully this weekend Nate can finish the details…rehanging a curtain rod, creating a canopy over her bed, securing the swing to the ceiling so it won’t get pulled down, and nailing in the last of the trim. Well done girls. Consider me impressed!!

We so look forward to our weekends together. Nate’s work hours are so late during the week that the weekends are treasured times for us. Hope your weekend includes some opportunities for great memories of your own. We are off to create some of our own!
