Brotherly Love

Joseph has been a wonderful big brother to Natalie this summer. Now that he's 9, he's been helping Joe entertain her during the day when Mallory, Rachel and Taylor are not home. He was even going to try and change a wet diaper the other day when Joe saw him and helped him out. Posted by Picasa


Natalie was playing with her baby in Freckles crate. It looks like she almost fell asleep. Posted by Picasa

Bottom Braces

Taylor got her bottom braces today and also got a new top wire. Posted by Picasa

Love that Smoothie

I made a smoothie for Taylor with strawberries and blueberries because her teeth hurt from getting new braces today. While we waited for the rest of dinner to be ready, Taylor left her smoothie at the table. Natalie found it and wouldn't give it back. Taylor had to pour some into a smaller cup to get her big cup away from Natalie. Posted by Picasa

Kids can sleep anywhere

Taylor, Bailey and Natalie came back downstairs last night after Joe and I went to bed. This is how we found Natalie sleeping this morning. Taylor was asleep at the other end of the sofa and Bailey was on the love seat. Posted by Picasa

Happy 9th Birthday!!!

Joseph woke up at 6:07 am to play with a new set of Legos he got for his birthday. He got this very cool pin and book about Tae Kwon Do from Grandpa - Thanks! We had Pizza Hut pizza for dinner and then opened family gifts. He got Mario Party 7 & Spiderman for the Game Cube and Big Brain Academy for his DS. We are having a pool party with a few of his friends on Saturday. Posted by Picasa

Caught in a Bag

Freckles had surgery yesterday on his ear. He had a drain inserted to remove a large quantity of blood that had accumulated in his ear from a broken blood vessel. He didn't get to eat at all yesterday and only got half his normal amount of food this morning. Freckles got his head caught in this chip bag trying to get the last crumbs out. LOL Posted by Picasa

Group Hug!!!

I love group hug shots. Posted by Picasa

Smelly Feet?

From the look on Rachel's face, it doesn't look like Bailey's feet smell very good. Bailey had a great day in the pool. She learned how to dive, do a hand stand in the shallow end and she rememebered how to do a forward roll under the water. Posted by Picasa

Wet Kiss?

Rachel got a very wet kiss from Natalie! Posted by Picasa

Did she make it?

Rachel looks like she's diving into a tiny cup of water at the circus. Do you think she made it through? Posted by Picasa

I don't think so!

Rachel built a tower of pool rings after the smallest on got stuck on her boobs. LOL Posted by Picasa


Joseph, Rachel and Bailey all jumped into the pool together. Posted by Picasa

Natalie and I in the Pool

I was able to get Natalie to get into the pool with me today. Posted by Picasa

Natalie gets Braver

Then I was able to get her to float around by herself as long as she had this ring and the water wings on. Posted by Picasa

Jumping into the Pool

We all took turns jumping into the pool. Bailey was trying to do a front flip. Posted by Picasa

Joseph's Turn

Joseph got Freckles wet. Posted by Picasa


Joseph jumped in before I did so it looks like my splash was there before I hit the water. Posted by Picasa
