What a long time it's been!

I cannot believe it has been a year since I posted on this blog. I am so sad that I have not been updating everything that has happened over the past year. My girls are getting so big and so funny and so wonderful. Stella started kindergarten, Vivian is talking like crazy. We're getting to the point where they want exactly the same toy and they're fighting with each other a lot. Aaahhhhh, Stella started kindergarten! I just had to say that again because it's crazy. She is so smart and she's doing good in kindergarten. She really likes her teacher. I think that Vivian is happy to have a little alone time at Grammy and Pawpaw's house now.

Stella is so into art, she's always been into art but it's really what she wants to do most all the time now. She's so creative and finds really cool ways to do drawings and cut things out and glue them back together. I'm really excited for how artistic and creative she is. Starting to get cold and her asthma is starting to act up again, lots of coughing. She can be such a kind little girl and I love her so!

Vivian is so silly and funny and she is a little jabberbox. She loves to watch the Kindle or the television. She loves her pawpaw and she still likes to snuggle. She loves to brush her teeth and wash her hands. She would do both of those things 10 times a day if you let her. She also gets away with a lot when she gives you her cute little grin.

I'm committing myself to come back and start blogging and keep on posting about the kids what they're doing, funny things they say. I miss doing it and I love looking back at it.

Sweet girl

Stella is in a stage now where she feels really nervous around people she doesn't see every day. Usually if someone addresses her she makes a sound or growls. It's hard on other people, I think, because they feel like maybe she doesn't like them. That really doesn't have anything to do with it though. Tonight after a get together, I asked her about it. I said, "You feel really nervous when you're around people you haven't seen in a while, don't you?" She said, "Yes". I said, "Some people might think you don't like them if you don't say hi or answer when they talk to you." She was quite upset and said, Well, will you tell them ...that's not true. And try to make them feel happy about me?" *sigh* I told her that people didn't feel badly about her. It actually broke my heart.

Cank You!

My girls are getting so big and I just don't have the time to stop and write it all down. Which sucks because my memory is so awful.

They are both so funny and I do not know how I could love them any more!!

Vivian just had her 18 month check up yesterday!  She is 32 inches and 22 lbs 6 oz. She is 18 months old, I can't believe it! She's right on the 50th percentile. She got two shots and she didn't even bat an eye. Right after she stood up grinning and said "Cank You!" to the nurses. She is so sweet!

We went camping a couple weekends ago, had a great time!! And a fantastic time at Angie & Tommy's wedding.

A couple more funny things.

Stella was throwing food to some birds while eating lunch. The bird wouldn't come close to get the bread, so she sat still and closed her eyes.  She said, "The bird was scared so I pretended like I was dead,"

Vivian was in the bathroom and I had to go do something for Stella. Vivian walked up and her arm was wet, I said, "Vivian did you stick your hand in the toilet?" She grinned at me and said, "Uhh-Huh!!" With a very perky, happy tone. Hahaha.

At Vivian's doctor appointment, Stella dropped a chip on the floor and stepped on it accidentally. I said, Pick that up please. But I wasn't really looking at her because I was looking at the doctor. So, then I hear the doctor say, "Oh, not with your tongue." Yep, true story.

Ahhhhh, my heart is so full.

A conversation with Stella.
Me: It's going to be ok, just think positive.
Stella: You think positive, I don't even know what positive is.

Bang, Bang on the Dog Ribbon

Ok, Stella and I were in the car this morning and Love Shack came on the radio. It was the end and I belted it out. She just at there with a bewildered look on her face. When it was over I asked her if she thought I was a crazy lunatic. She said, "that's the song they did at the wedding!" Then tonight she started singing it out of no where. I realized she was singing something a little different. She has informed me this is what they say, "Bang, bang, bang on the dog ribbon." Also, she had the following epiphanies:
She's going to have the longest wedding ever, it's going to be great because it's going to be a sleep over! And she's going to have a baby girl and name her Buttercup. She's so excited. 

Here are some pictures from the fun we had at Chris & Melissa's wedding.

Pre-K Age 4

My baby girls first day of 4 year old preschool! On the way there in the car she said, "When we go to school it feels just like the old days." I laughed because, what can a 4 year old know about "the old days". But then add she went on I realized she meant before Vivian. 

She had a great first day of school!!
