Life in the Fast Lane

Fall is now gone, and these chillin's just keep growing.  How does time pass so quickly?  The years are flying by, which I'm sure was not the case 10 years ago.  Must be global warming.

The best part of winter is these stinkin' cute hats.

The twins are now 6 (almost 7) months.  We just introduced solid food right before Thanksgiving.  I was planning to do it at 6 months, but we moved on their actual 6-month birthday, and it took a few weeks for me to even find the high chairs.

The first eating experience was not a great one.  They were a little sleepy and did not feel like learning a new skill.

Those faces say it all.

So we waited another day and tried again when they were in better moods.

Our Ryan Elizabeth is a trip!  She appears to be very serious and intense.  But when she decides to cut loose, she almost explodes with giggles.

Ryan and Jack are such sweet babies!

Bath time is their favorite!  And there's nothing cuter than a naked baby.

Except a fat naked baby.

Over Thanksgiving weekend, we attempted to get a family picture, hoping to wrap up the Christmas card project.  This was the best one.  The lighting isn't the best, so I'm not sure it will make the card.  

My sweet Eveley is LOVING school.  She is a wonderful big sister and a great helper.  She is constantly asking how she can help me and loves to surprise me by cleaning her room or the playroom.  What a JOY she is.

My sweet and sour Caleb has a birthday this month. He turns 3, and is putting to test the question whether terrible 2s or terrible 3s are the worst.  I can't tell you enough how this little boy makes his mama's heart nearly burst.  I love him dearly, and he holds a very special place in my heart.  He is a major toot most of the time, but he is also one of the sweetest little boys the other 30 minutes of the day.  I love this boy bunches.

Baby Jack is almost perfect.  His big blue eyes pale in comparison to his big wide smile.  He is an angel.

The other afternoon, I let Eveley use my camera to take some pictures of the twins (finally giving in after her incessant whining).  She got some cute ones.

A rare look at Jack without his smile.
And then I found this.

:)  Just wanted to squelch all those rumors that super mom lives here.

I can't believe how Jack has filled out and changed so much. He's looking more like Ryan. They all have such beautiful eyes. Great kids and great mummy and daddy. Grandma Fran
