Four Months {a piece}



These are not their "best outfit" pictures by any means but it's all I have where they are the same age {to the DAY} and making the same-ish face.
I love my little chubby cheeked babies!

Busy, Busy, and Busy

17 lbs 3 oz. today.

Loving life!!!
She climbs all the slides by herself now. YAY!
I love this picture

Fix my shoe teacha
Best friends!
Hunter came to play while they were in town and she loved Gabby's baby Chicks!
Twinners 
This one is my fave, Playing "school" with her "friends"!!!  She stripped 90% of her bed and made her friends sing the hello and goodbye songs as well as head, shoulders, knees and toes.



Lately we have been going non stop.  We have had so much fun as a family and I love to take my girls places everyday. 
Gabby is obsessed (as every toddler is) with Jumping Jacks!  She asks to go there on the regular.
My kids are growing up right before my eyes.  I can't believe how quickly age is creeping up on ME in the mean time! NO WAY will I be 27 this year!?!?!
Gabby is still in dance and loving every second of it! I can't wait for the recital in May. She loves her friends in the class.  Brenna, Kenna, Navi, and Harper are her faves.  Even though Harper is not actually in the class, Gabby still loves her.
We are absolutely loving our neighborhood here too.  I have loved moving to a place where actual neighbors exist. There are so many kids on our street.

Easter Overload




















We had so much fun on Easter weekend. The festivities never stopped. Unfortunately I only had my Camera on Saturday. We took tons of pictures because Gabby was in heaven at her 3rd egg hunt! She loves looking for eggs!

The night before Easter was so fun because we told Gabby if you leave carrots out then the Easter bunny comes to your house.  She thought that was the ultimate idea!  She was sure to leave about 50 as you can see.  She told me to say in the note that he could have a "nack" if he was "Hungwee"!  I just love this little womans excitement.  She was so excited to go to bed.  I tucked her in and sang her a song.  About 10 min later I was downstairs cleaning up the living room putting all the toys and junk away.  Gabby yelled from her room, "I wanna come see the Easter Bunny mom!! Let me see him!!"  She obviously thought I was him.  I had to tell her he didn't come until all of us were asleep.  She said, "Go to bed NOW mommy!" 
Cracks me up!

Easter morning she woke up at 7:30 (about an hour early, yay...) and headed downstairs not even bothering to tell us or wake us up! Nope, she headed right to the money pot and started in on the candy.  We heard her rummaging around and went out to find her.  It was so cute.
Stella slept right though it all!
Sunday was fun too.  The girls looked so cute at church in their awesome dresses! Stella has to wear 12 month clothes.  She is officially CHunkIER than Gabby was! I love how my back is dying from a 4 month old!  Later on we went over to the Smiths to eat another incredibly delicious dinner with all his family!  I love them. They are so fun to talk with, laugh with and eat with!!
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

Neglect

I hate not blogging because I suddenly have no friends or {online} support group. I have not been on my computer much at all in the past few weeks. I have to admit that I've been a much better mommy during this time. I have read maybe 5 posts total and feel like I am totally missing out on your {and your kids} lives. It's weird not knowing everything you are all up to. I'll be back to visiting and commenting soon! I love leaving comments. It makes ya feel good. You know when it was the last day of school and you got to sign yearbooks. That was my favorite part of the day, possibly the whole year!
I'm gonna make a computer schedule (did I just say that out loud?) and put in some blog/scrap hours a couple nights a week. I'm such a loser but I totally have to divvy up my time or I don't get a single thing accomplished. I have been kinda back on the picture taking bandwagon too. I feel bad because there has been a huge gap in months where I sorta stopped taking lots of pictures of Gabby. She has grown up SOOO stinkin much lately too. I totally feel 3 on the verge. It's scary how much she has learned in about 3 months. I have this awesome book I bought at the What Women Want expo about letters and their sounds. Gabby is eating it up! We do 2 letter stories a night. She is getting her alphabet down so dang good. My goal is to have her know every sound and know how to spell her name (just Gabby) and recognize my cell number by preschool in Aug. Maybe she is behind according to all you super moms but hey. I don't think I knew jack crizap when I went to KINDERGARTEN! I need to spend way more time doing studies with her during Stellas nap time. i have been lazy.

Anyway, I don't like how sad my blog is with zero updates, meltdowns, or pictures on the regular... My girls are getting so big. Stella is a rolling FOOL!!!!
I'll be revamping it a tad and then it's gonna be back in biz very shortly!
