Busy Busy...

Kate has been getting clothes out of her drawers and putting them on in creative ways :)
She entertains herself with books everyday.
Playing with her baby - this has been happening more since Baby David has been home.
Already trying to be a little mommy.
Michael was very proud of his tower. And he looks so grown up in this picture!
Trying on Mommom's houseshoes.
Michael loves to play games on my phone. Kate wanted to play too.
Playing with cars together. And very well I might add :)
Lately Kate has been going to her room to get a diaper & wipes. Then she lays down on the floor and waits for someone to change her. I think she is ready to be potty trained. Too bad I don't have any energy to train her right now. Hopefully soon.
Michael has been making his bed by himself!
Ahhh, dirt. So much fun!

Last Week of School

Kate had a wonderful year in her MDO class with Ms. Kelly & Ms. Debbie. She always walked in & began playing right away, never looking back at me. Her teachers were so sweet & thoughtful too!
Michael LOVED school this year - This is Ms. Cynthia. His other teacher, Ms. Kylie, was out of the room when we took the picture :( He loved his teachers & has mentioned them a lot these last few weeks since school has ended - "Where do they live? Can I send them a picture? I want to draw a picture for my teachers & mail it to them." are just a few of the things I've heard Michael say recently. We can't wait for Michael to start Pre-K in the fall at this wonderful school!
End of year program - Michael is on the front row, in the very center. They sang about Noah & of course, it was adorable :)

Uncle Steven

Uncle Steven got to stay at our house for a few days while Mommy, Daddy & David were at the hospital. We had SO much fun with him! I followed him around everywhere & asked him LOTS of questions (He was very patient with me :). One morning Daddy & Uncle Steven took Kate & me to the Science Museum. Kate & I loved playing doctor with him too! I hope I get to see Uncle Steven again soon!

Going Home!

We stayed at the hospital Wednesday through Sunday. My doctor wanted me to stay as long as possible, because after 3 c-sections in 4 years, my muscles were shot. I have been wearing an abdominal binder & also been told not to lift for 4 weeks - very challenging with a nearly 2 year old! But fortunately we have had lots of help from family!
Michael & Kate greeted us at the door!

Andy & Uncle Steven worked really hard to make this fun welcome home sign for David, along with a huge balloon bouquet & flowers!

More Hospital Pics

Easter Weekend

Kate & I loved opening our Easter baskets on Easter morning.
Daddy & Kate
I tried really hard to help Kate smile, but she wasn't in the mood.
We loved having Mommom visit for the week! It rained most of the day & was really chilly, so Daddy hid Easter eggs in the living room & we had so much fun hunting them!
