These Stinky Kids

These stinky kids are doing amazing!
Cooper amazes me everyday. Sometimes he makes it very clear that he is two, but sometimes I feel like he knows things before I can tell him. Since we brought baby Blythe home, his verbal skills have completely taken off. He definitely thinks he is in charge of his younger sisters. Blythe doesn't seem to mind too much, but Abby might feel differently.

Our little Babby definitely keeps us on our toes. Her increasing verbal skills seem to mirror Coopers. Someone once told us that Irish twins often come up with their own languages, and I would say that that is true for ours. Abby loves to kiss her sister ALL the time, even if she can only get to her feet.

Our little Blythe is a month old today! She is such a sweet, peaceful spirit.
She is starting to be more and more aware of whoever is holding her. She looks right at us, something her sister really did too. We feel so lucky that our children share such affection for each other...even if it is fleeting sometimes!

Love you guys!

Loving This Girl

Could she be any better?

Whenever we have a baby, I always find myself feeling grateful.
These two babies have welcomed their sister with open arms. What an amazing blessing! They are so helpful, and they have behaved beautifully.
I'm also grateful that Steven took pictures of them somewhere other then our kitchen....that seems to be the only place I manage to take pictures.
Thanks Steven. Thanks Babies...

The other night we had a few cousins come to take a look at Blythe. It was so fun to watch these sweet girls (and boy...I didn't forget you Miles!) be so excited about the new baby. As I watched them I couldn't help but think,
"Please think she's this fun when she's nipping at your heels when you have boyfriends at the lake or Please don't murder her when she is being more then annoying when you are much older and don't have time for the nonsense.
Then I realized something.
Sometimes it's then ones who loved you when you were annoying that love you the best when you're older.
It's amazing.

You're in good hands Blythe.
