madeline is two!

Madeline's birthday party was last weekend. We had some of her friends over for a pool party...pretty low key this year. She loved it, though! She is still singing happy birthday to herself and talking about eating cake! Here are a few pics of her and her friends and cousins.

joining the ranks

Finally! I have been wanting to start this blog for months and I am just getting around to doing it. With baby Claire finally here, I thought it would be a good time to start tracking what is going on in our crazy lives.

This is my first week at home with all three girls and no help. I have to say it has been so much easier than I expected. Claire has been such an easy baby so far...it has been a huge blessing. With Madeline just turning two (and all that implies!) I was terrified of adding another one to the mix. So far so good...I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I took the girls to the movies this morning. Everything was great until Madeline ran out of popcorn and lost all interest in being there. She started screaming "don't like it, go bye bye" at the top of her lungs and I had to drag all three kids out of the movie halfway through. Fortunately, Emma was easily bribed with the promise of a trip to McDonald's afterwards and left willingly. Somehow I don't think that I'll be brave enough to try the movies again next week.

Ryan's grandparents come in from California tonight to meet Claire. We are excited to spend the next week with them....it's always good to have family around!
