Nora 4 months

I got home from church and could not help take some pictures of this cute little girl. She is already 4 months old and is rolling over, talking, smiling like crazy and has recently found her thumb. She is 17 pounds of pure love.

Nora eating

Lately Nora has really been eying our food and really seems interested in eating, so we decided to give it a go. She pretty much loves food and is doing really good eating.


Last week we were able to finally take Avery to ride some horses out at a friends house. We had been trying to set something up for a few months now and we were finally able to figure out a time. She was so excited and was so ready to jump on a horse and "let the horse run". This little girl was a natural on that horse and it looked like she had been riding horses before. The horses were pretty big, so we did not let her go all by herself, but she sure wanted to. At one point I got on the horse and put Avery behind me so that we could run on the horse. A few minutes into the ride Avery says ,"um... mom, I am kinda falling off the horse." Sure enough, I slow the horse down and turn around just in time to catch her before she fell off. Avery was not even a little scared. She was awesome and I cannot wait to take her back. I think I see some horse riding lessons in the near future.

Sleepy Nora

I was getting Nora's bath ready the other night and I set her down on the rug next to me. By the time I was ready to put her in I looked down and she was totally asleep. I even undressed her and she stayed asleep and i put her into the bath and she was still asleep. It was pretty cute.


As I have said before, the girls love to pull up chairs in the kitchen and help me cook. The other night I was changing Nora's diaper and things were a little too quiet in the other room. I walked into the kitchen and this is what I found. June cooking in the kitchen. She had opened the spice cupboard and poured out a bunch of spices into the saucepan and she was mixing them up. She mixed up garlic powder, oregano, nutmeg and cinnamon and it seriously smelled so nasty. Silly girl.


I Love these little ladies!! They love to spend time with me when I am cooking in the kitchen and they usually have to pull up chairs up next to the counter and help me but this time they wanted to be "ladies" in the kitchen. I don't really know what that means, or how exactly this makes them ladies, but it was really cute.


For Easter this year I took the girls to pick out their very own baby chick. I remember doing this as a kid and just loved it, so I was pretty sure that our girls would love it too. They had so much fun picking out just the right chick and they were so excited to get home so that they could play with them. Avery named hers chick-a-dee and June named hers Spot. Avery was so good with her chick and loved to hold it and feed it and seriously wanted to sleep with the little thing. June aka "lenny", on the other hand was a little rough and we had to watch her. Poor Spot was picked up by its head countless times and at one point he was kicked across the room. We enjoyed the chicks for a few days and then gave them to friends who had a chicken coop and were looking for baby chicks, so it worked out great.
