So, life lately. As usual, there have been lots of playdates! Believe it or not, I do arrange for Liam to play with boys his age, but for some reason I haven't busted out the camera when they have come over lately. Darn. But he loves all the little girls we have over, too. Trampoline static. Gotta love these silly gooses.
Juliette is growing up! She loves playing with her kitchen stuff, toting babies around, reading herself books, getting into anything her big brother is playing with. Liam thinks she's trying to terrorize him, but they're learning to play really nicely together while Isabella is at school.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, our trampoline has been the best thing! Sometimes the kids have even snuck out on it when it's slushy wet from the snow. They can't get enough of it.
Isabella has an impeccable memory. She remembers everything, and she's often reminiscing in detail about her good old preschool days. She misses seeing all of her old friends, so one Saturday morning we had a few of them over. They had a ball, and yes, a mini-tea party was in order.
We also had one of her good friends over for dinner the other night. It was so fun to watching them all giddy about it and silliness was definitely the theme of the evening.
One of my favorite things about my kids right now is how well they all entertain themselves, and how well they (for the most part) play together. They are always dreaming up fun new things to do. On a sunny afternoon they decided they wanted to color on rocks outside. Oh, and Juliette always, always is sticking her tongue out like that whenever she's concentrating. I think it's so cute!
There have been too many painting projects to count! Oh, the mess! :)
Another favorite past time for them is getting out all the blankets and making forts. Here is one I thought was particularly creative as it involved the use of a cute umbrella. :)
What is childhood without playdough?
Aw, sweet girl. This is the face she always gives me when I tell her to look at the camera.
And now Liam is starting to do "the face" too!
We love our neighbors. I often have to pinch myself. I don't know how we got lucky enough to have the sweetest kids on the block.
Like I said, her tongue. Between that and her little pigtails, I think she is the cutest thing ever.
This month these two have birthdays! Here Liam is working on showing me four fingers. He wants a robot party and literally can't wait for March 24th! I'm excited for him. He's been talking about it for months!
I can't believe she's almost big enough to be in a big girl bed. I don't think we'll make that move anytime soon, but just the idea that she's almost two kinda kills me on a daily basis.
So, that's pretty much a wrap on pictures of the kiddos for now! Will and I are getting ready to go to Boston, New York and D.C. next week. I'm super excited for a little getaway with him and to see my brother, but it's not going to be easy to leave my little ones!
