Another Post About "Nothing"

Here is another blog post about "nothing."  It's not really nothing but its nothing in particular.  Just a lil of this...that...and the other.  The good....the bad....and the ugly of our everyday life.
Sissy wanted to try having a seat in her baby stroller.  Epic fail.
But this lil girl didn't let it keep her down.
Gotta love all the amazing smiles that get flashed my way.
We won't talk about the tears.
Bubby reading his sister a book for the first time.  It was precious.
Nana and Sissy feeding the baby a bottle.
We had a get-together with family to celebrate my birthday and my brothers birthday.  Bubby was super excited to see his cousins.
I'd like to say that she was closing her eyes to pray before the meal but actually this is the face she made when she saw the camera point in her direction.
Happy Birthday to us. 
After cake Sissy sat down to draw.
And eventually everyone joined in.
I told Bubby I wanted a picture of him smiling.  This is the look I got.... He was definitely annoyed.
"Seriously, Mom."
Whoopsie....he's letting a smile slip out.
There we go.....
Love it.
Bubby made his own lil city with all of Nana's Imaginext toys.  He was occupied for hours.
And Sissy.....well...She was occupied too.
Early in the week we had 50+ degree weather and we took advantage of it.  We headed to the park.
Ready to slide.
A lil bit of a smile.
Bubby's ornery smile while swinging on the seal. 
It was so nice to be outside. 
Sissy wanted to do everything Bubby did.
But she had a lil more trouble.

Bubby stayed on the seal the whole time and Sissy went from animal to animal making sure to try them all out.
Bubby going up the big slide.
It was a really slow slide that day so I got a good picture of him coming down.  In fact, I think at this point he wasn't even moving.
But apparently it was he wanted to go again.
And Sissy wanted to follow.  She wasn't thrilled when we had to tell her no.
Time to head home.  Bubby said he wanted to pull Sissy home....I was thrilled.
He made it about half way there before he decided he wanted to run ahead instead.
Goofy boy.
Sissy spotted KitCat outside....and it looks like KitCat spotted her too.
Yelling bye to KitCat.
Two goofy dogs snuggling up together.  Can you tell which one is Mickey and which one is Marley.  I hear they are hard to tell apart.
We got a bunch of Disney stickers in the mail the other day.  Sissy quickly took care of those.  In no time flat she had them all over her.
Sissy has decided that she doesn't want to wear diapers anymore.  I am almost 9 months pregnant and she decides she doesn't like diapers.  Seriously???  She did look cute in Bubby's underwear though.
At 19 months old I really don't think we are ready to potty train. 
But just in case....we borrowed my Sister-in-laws Elmo potty.....and of course she loved it.
All three of the babies watching a movie at the end of the night.  Baby #3 almost completely hides Sissy. 
We've been going through old baby clothes and found Bubby's first Halloween costume.  I thought it would look cute on Sissy for a quick picture.  She wasn't very thrilled.
Well....I'm off to take more random/goofy/everyday pictures of these kiddos to get ready for the next blog post of "nothing."  In my opinion....there's nothing better.

They Make Life So Much Fun

It has been very cold still and we have had ice on the roads and sidewalks for five days now. 
But surprisingly I'm not getting stir crazy.  I think it is only because I have two cuties to entertain me.....or keep me busy...or a lil of both.
Goofy girl.
You wonder what she's looking at....
Yep....its Bubby.  He's hiding under his bed.
 Sissy trying to get his toes.
 And, of course, she has to join him.
 Anything Bubby does she has to do too.
 There isn't much room under there.
 But they both made it under there completely covered up.
 I was getting ready to get in the shower.  It takes a bit for our water to warm up so I turned it on and went and did something real quick in the other room only to come back and catch this lil girl trying to get in the shower.
 Yeah....just throw an ornery smile at me and expect it to make it all better.  Lil stinker.
 She found the Woody hat from Toy Story.
Why not try it on for size?
We found a bag of Bubby's baby clothes and bibs and it included the shirt that we got at the hospital when Bubby was born.  It is so small compared to how big he is now.
He is growing up so fast.
This goofy boy wanted to try on his old bibs.  He's gonna hate me for this picture someday.
This bib says, "Chicks Dig Me."  I asked Bubby what that means..... He has no idea.
I was teaching him what these lil mittens will be used for when his little brother gets here. 
We ventured out the other day to the grocery store.  These two were awesome the entire time we shopped.
A lil goofy...but still very good.
Watching The Boxcar Children.  It was his first time seeing it and he loved it.
Bubby has always loved coloring and Sissy has really started getting into it too.  She will sit for an hour making small marks on a paper while watching a show.  While supper was cooking last night I sat in there and colored with her.  Love moments like that.
I had gone out to let Marley go to the bathroom and when I looked back through the door it did my heart good.  I love seeing these two becoming best friends.  I couldn't wait to get back inside.
(If you look really close you can see the silhouette of my big ole belly on the door.  7 more weeks till my due date)
Just in the last few weeks Bubby has become an amazing helper around the house.  He was putting the rolls of toilet paper away for me.
Sissy was in charge of putting away the paper towels.....but she had different plans.
When Bubby was done putting away the toilet paper he sat down and started explaining to Sissy how to unwrap the toilet paper rolls.  He is an amazing big brother.  Then he proceeded to put all the paper towel rolls away for me.
In the meantime, Sissy decided to go take down all the toilet paper rolls that Bubby had so neatly put away.  Bubby was not a very happy boy.

They both love to be in the kitchen when I'm making supper.  Bubby was seasoning the green beans and Sissy was doing the dishes (aka: playing in the soapy water)
Then Bubby helped put cottage cheese on his and Sissy's plate.
She definitely had clean hands when it was finally time to eat.
This morning we spent a lot of time upstairs getting clothes organized and put away.  Bubby took that time to play Batman while he was Batman.
The kids wrestling on the floor.  I'm so thankful that they play well together because it gives me a chance to get my stuff done around the house.
I walked by the bathroom at one point and see Sissy standing on my scale.  Guess she has seen mommy do that a time or two.
Of course, Bubby wanted a chance on the scale too.  If these kids only knew what a terrible terrible thing they were standing on.  If they are anything like their Mama they will someday grow up to despise that thing.
Goofy girl smiling up at me after she had just fallen down.
Mid-morning dishes. 
This was the first time that Bubby actually did the dishes all on his own.  Notice the cup sitting on the drying towel still covered in soap.
I contemplated helping him but decided to let him do it on his own and then when he wasn't looking later I would go back and do them again.  He felt like a big boy getting to do it on his own.
Sissy washed this spatula the entire time.  She would get soap on it and then rinse it off and do that over and over again.  It is probably the cleanest that spatula has ever been.
He was starting to get the hang of rinsing the dishes a lil better.
Telling me all about it.
"Clean" dishes piling up.
Wonderful days.  These kids make the everyday life so much fun.
