Malia has had a busy week this week. She had two teeth come in poor girl! She now has the bottom tooth just to the left of her front teeth! Yesterday she was tired and needy most of the day. When I was about to go to bed, I peeked on her. She was turned around in her bed with one foot on her pillow and one foot through the bars of her bed. I turned her around without her waking up, so I though I would try checking her mouth to make sure she didn’t have any more surprises for me. I discovered that she had her bottom right pre-molar come through her gums. She has been so much happier today.
Cailin has had a good week. She is still working on orneriness. I think she is testing the waters to see what she can get away with… and for my sanity, it isn’t much. We had some photo sessions outside just playing around and trying to fiddle with my camera. She is getting so big. And has such a sweet heart. On Wednesday, Cailin had her first service project with our church and she loved it. They had spring cleaning for toddler town. It is the part of our church for the 2-late 4 year olds. There were 11 moms and 19 kiddos to come and help. Malia came too, but she did more playing than helping. We were cleaning out cabinets, cleaning toys, wiping everything down… Cailin worked with a little girl Phoenix with 3 bins of water… rinse, wash and rinse again. She would dunk a toy in each of the bins and then dry them off. While she was working she looked at me and said “this makes Jesus’s heart smile doesn’t it?”. You bet Baby girl, you bet! Made my heart smile too. She has such a big heart to share with everyone. Last night we were playing and she told me “I like sharing my toys with Malia. It makes her so happy to play with me”. How many kids do you hear saying something like that about a younger sibling. I love this girl so much.
I feel like the only thing I have been doing lately is cleaning house and having a hard time catching up. I am trying though.
The weather has been… well… interesting. It was a bit cool early in the week, but then warmed up Thursday and Friday. We were supposed to have a picnic at the service project at church, but it was cold and rainy, we had a picnic inside instead and all the kids were just as happy. Thursday and Friday it was up to 70 degrees. It was awesome. We were outside all day long. It was great. We were outside all day Friday too. Hauling wood, tilling up flower beds, getting ready for spring. Then Saturday, it seemed like all hell broke loose. We woke up and it was cold and sleeting. The temperature just dropped all day long. By the time the girls went to bed, there was about 3 inches of snow. When I finally went to bed, there was 5-6 inches of snow. Sunday morning, it was still snowing and sleeting. Most of it melted on Sunday, but it was still cold. Today it is a bit warmer, in the 50’s so everything is completely melted. The problem is that now it is going to be warm all week, but with 6 inches of snow that has melted, it is going to be a muddy mucky mess this week. Maybe this will be a good week to bake some nice mud pies with my girls. I hope you have a sunny week… no matter what the weather is!!! Here, we've been laughing that the last day of winter it was 70 degrees, and the first day of spring we had a snow storm with at least 6 inches of snow!
Oh, forgot to mention Cailin’s new word… Delishable. Pronounced De-lish-able. She was playing with her baby and said she had a delishable girl.
