I had a few work days at home again this winter, and the girls and I just loved being together. There were a few times outs, and a moment or two of me losing it, but most of the time we had fun. They are so much fun to be around, they brighten me from inside out; truly a gift from God. These pictures were taken sometime in March.

I love their feet. Have you ever seen a cuter foot?

Feet Don't Fail Me Now
Here's some pictures from John and I's trip to the Big Apple. We went for our 10 year anniversary, and had been dreaming about this trip for about two years. We walked and walked and walked some more, just trying to see everything on our list. It was so nice to spend some time together, to walk hand in hand and making silly jokes or flirt. I married an amazing man, and 16 years after I met him, 11 years after I started dating him, and 10 years after I married him I still find him enchanting, charming, witty, handsome, and sweet. Last night when we were snuggling, he was playing a game on his iphone, and I was trying to sleep, and he turned down the sound so it wouldn't bother me. That's modern day love right there. =) Swoon. =)

Cecilia's First Ballet Recital
She's clearly cuter than those other girls.
Cecilia had her first ballet recital on Saturday, and I don't think I've seen anything cuter. They danced to Winnie the Pooh and held teddy bears, and it was just all I could do to keep it together. These pregnancy hormones think I should cry every half an hour. =( The group before Cecilia's group could not do any of the dance at the dress rehearsal, and I had to turn my head away to control my giggles, tear producing giggles. Oh, I almost forgot, she had lipstick (lip gloss) and blush on.
This video was taken at the dress rehearsal with John's iphone. Cecilia is third from the right, with the brown bear.

Two of a Kind Working on a Full House
I have lots of stuff to share with you, trips, and all, but this is what I can't stop thinking about. =) I'm 14 weeks along already, which is great. Our life sure will be different, I'm sure, but I'm ready. Cecilia and Charlotte bring me so much joy (a few grey hairs too) and I'm sure this little person will just add to the love in this house. Cecilia has mixed feelings already. She plays with babies a lot, so I think she'll be a great helper. She asked me today if the baby was doing ok. Cute. Every once in a while she asks me why we need three babies, and I just tell her three babies sounds like even more fun. It's very important to me that she doesn't feel slighted. Charlotte really doesn't understand, which is ok, she won't know any different. Here we go. Wheeee!!!
