Well maybe our story isn't as dramatic or as enticing as the show "My So Called Life", which I hope you all watched at some point because its awesome. If not, Netflix has them, watch it enjoy..... :-)
I realize it has been quite some time since I've posted an "updated" blog so I thought tonight would be a good opportunity! Nick is off with a friend "fixing"and amp, kids are in bed, and I'm watching HGTV. That might be the only update you need as this seems to be a regular evening schedule in our house.
Birks ~ Is a sweet, sensitive, baseball loving boy. He has grown out of his fear of water, for the most part! He loves to swim, jump into the pool, splash, slide down the slide into the water and torment his sister as much as he can. Birk is an excellent counter these days and can get all the way to 20 without any help. Birky has a heart of gold and is so conscience when he knows he has done something wrong or hurt someone's feelings .... unless it comes to wrestling with his dad. Then the gloves are off. :-) Birk loves that his cousins Charlie and Gus are closer now and he can play with them on a more regular basis.
Adelyne ~ Is one of the smartest, biggest personality child I have ever met. She is FULL of imagination and fun! She is still very much in love with becoming a princess, but doesn't hesitate to get down and dirty when we are playing outside. Addy is strong willed and does not hesitate to let you know when she is not happy, doesn't agree with what you are saying or is just plain P'd off. However, she has a giggle and a smile that can light up any room. Addy loves to read, color and do anything "art". The kids are going to G'ma and G'pa Robertson's for almost a week this Friday and Addy keeps telling me how she can't wait to go to G'ma's classroom. She knows she is going to get to do lots of fun things.
Both kids are actively working on potty training. We are confident we won't be consistent enough to go to pre-school, but we've decided that is ok for now. The pressure was becoming too much for all of us and we want to focus on fun this summer. It will happen when it happens. :-) There might be some changes for the twins in the area of care givers. I'll post more on that as soon as it is finalized.
We do go back to Cincinnati in August for our 6 month post operation check up for B man. We are hoping and praying for continued good news. We show no signs of anything troubling and hope the scope confirms this.
