Baby Belly's

Okay so we all know how I don't pass my baby's around. This should come as no shock to anyone right? Well here's a new pet peeve I just thought of. People thinking that they have a right to touch my stomach just because I have a baby growing in it. Why the fascination? When I don't have a baby belly I don't see people coming up to me to feel my stomach so why then does the fact that I have a baby growing in my belly give some people the notion that it is okay to touch my stomach? My baby isn't public property and my body sure as hell isn't....

It's really one of the most annoying things about being pregnant. I don't mind my family, husband and kids, touching it but outside of that, oh and aunts and grandma's/mom; keep your hands off.

It's very aggravating for me.... I mean I don't mean my close friends but just people that have no claim, know what I mean????????

I've been thinking a lot about motherhood lately.  It is such a hard job but seriously so rewarding.  I love my children so much.  I remember my mom saying to me all throughout my life, "I love you so much, more then you will ever know until you have a little Nicole of your own."  Well I know what she means now and well, it makes me miss her and makes me miss the way I felt when I was around her.  

I hope my children feel that same safety and peace.

Spring Weather

So the first picture will be of the girls in their Easter dresses on Sunday. I was super sick on Easter Sunday so we didn't go to church that day. Easter overall for the girls was a bit of a bummer. They loved their Easter baskets but mom was just to sick to really enjoy the day. Hopefully it won't be the Easter they remember for the rest of their lives. LOL

The weather here has been beautiful Saturday through today. Yesterday the girls and I went to the park for several hours and began our summer "glow". Paige doesn't tan she is just to white and Taylor could probably get darker but we use SPF 500. LOL Today after Paige got home from school we had a picnic lunch outside and then I turned on the sprinklers for the girls. I'm not sure where my girls get their desire to pose but boy, they sure know how to do it! My favorite is of the girls together. Taylor is singing and Paige is posing! I love sunny weather and I love that the girls are water babies. It's nice that paige can swim on her own and that Taylor can as well. Enjoy! I know some of you haven't seen the girls for awhile!

Hood to Coast

I've decided I am running the Hood to Coast next year with some girlfriends.  That's all I have to say about that right now, no applause necessary.  I still can't believe I am going to run for an extended period of time.  I make myself wanna throw up! Who runs for no purpose other than to run?  Apparently I am going to start after the baby is 6 weeks old.  LOL  The whole idea is just funny isn't it! LOL

p.s. The Taylors are forbidden from commenting on this post due to my last comment on theirs!

God's Character

So Paige got home from school today and is being a little bit stinky. She and Taylor are fighting a lot so I just told them to go to their room and have quiet time on their beds with books. Paige looks at me and says in a semi loud, panicky voice, "Please no, give us another chance like God would."

Just 4 years old today!

Happy Birthday to our dear little Taylor. I remember so vividly the day Taylor was born. One of the things that sticks out the most in my mind was when the nurse handed her back to me. Taylor opened her eyes and looked right at me. When she did I could see her smiling in them. She was a happy baby and is such a happy kid!

That is one of the best ways to describe Taylor. She is charismatic, loveable, funny, and just a tad devious.(I may be understating this a little because it's her birthday.)

The things Taylor loves to do are:

Sing!!!!! At church we have few problems controlling Taylor. The only thing we have to remind her is to stop singing. She sings all the time! In the car, shower, just playing. I think its the first thing that pops into her mind
She loves to do puzzles
Read books
Play in the dirt!
Pretend she can read
And ride her bike
Color on walls and on her body and the latest!
cut her own hair!
I was thinking of all the funny "Taylorisims" to share with everyone but I really couldn't narrow any of them down. She is just so funny and comes up with some of the funniest things.

We love Taylor and appreciate all she brings into our family. She is the funnest little 4 year old I know!

So last night the girls were brushing their teeth so I decided to do it with them. Well we got this new toothpaste and it was so grouse. It was so grouse that it created a tickle in the back of my throat and I couldn't wash it away and it caused me to throw up. This is a first for me.

The story isn't about the throw up. The story is about what my girls did. When I started throwing up, they both ran over to me and Taylor started rubbing my back while Paige decided to hold my hair. They both sat there with me the entire time except when I could finally tell Paige that I needed a drink of water. She ran down stairs got a glass brought it back and then got a wash cloth to wash my face.

I was so touched that I had little girls right then and could picture myself older and them taking care of me. They were both so loving and tender.

Paige is furious... LOL

So a quick note, seems like I have been posting a lot lately so anyway here's a quick story.

This morning I was taking Paige to school and we were a little earlier then normal. So when I drove in the parking lot I noticed Paige seemed a little melancholy. So I asked her what was up. She said nothing and I said something and she looked at me with this gloom look on her face and said, "Oh nothing I'm just furious that my birthday is coming up soon." Um...... Are we all on the same page? So I kind of laughed a little thinking she was just using the word wrong and then asked her why she was furious to see if she really knew what the word meant. She then tells me, "because I just don't know what you and daddy are going to get me for my birthday."
