New Post, New Pics

So I know I haven't been posting much lately. I guess ever since Trinkets, I have just enjoyed my evenings away from the computer since so much of my time was spent up here prior to that. At any rate, I'm going to try to be better and give updates more often!

Christopher is about to finish his 3-year old pre-school year. I can't believe my baby will be 4 this summer!! CRAZY!  We've had our first experience with soccer, which really deserves a post of its own, but overall it's been good.  Christopher has had a great time with it and Cory and I are so proud of his efforts and his competitive nature!  He is really turning into quite the intuitive little boy. I can't say anything anymore without him picking up on it. He has the best imagination and we are always engrossed in "pretend play" at this house.  The other day I got to be Lois Lane, a Wonder Pet (can't remember which one), a cow, a dinosaur, and a mommy all in the first hour of my day.   The kid is so smart and constantly asking me questions about anything and everything.  He rattles my nerves every day but melts my heart even more.

My little kitchen helper, wearing his sister's jacket.  This just cracked me up one day!

Miss Lucy is now 13 months and trying to walk, as you saw in my previous post. Not only that but the girl climbs on everything! She keeps me on my toes all the time.  She is also exploring her vocal chords.  There is no use trying to have a phone conversation, or any other conversation for that matter, while Lucy is in her high chair.  She has decided that at that time of day, she will shriek the most attractive high pitched squeal you can imagine.  It is so pleasant really.  She's not doing it out of anger or sadness, just her form of communication right now.  She is also becoming more and more animated.  She shows her excitement for things with the cutest little faces and always saying "oooh, oooh."  This little one does the same as her brother and makes me both crazy for sanity and silence, and crazy in love.

"Look at me!  I'm taking steps!"

Lovin' the pigtails. I can't believe Christopher will be 4. Time flies. He's looking like such a big little boy!
