When we had gone to Beth and Aubreys wedding the girls started telling us that they were not "big" enough to ride the street cars. We have no idea where they came up with this except maybe from us telling them that they were not big enough to ride a ride a city park 2 months before. We had never told them that they weren't big enough to ride the street car, but thought it was pretty funny. We never got the chance to ride the streetcars while we were down there during the wedding, so we decided to tell them on their birthday that they were now "big" enough to ride it.
We headed down to the city to hop on the streetcars! They girls LOVED just sitting there and watching the city going by....
Today is the girls 3rd Birthday. It just blows me away that they are THREE!! Where did the time go? I can so clearly remember the day they were born! They have turned into the sweetest, funniest, smartest little girls! They make us laugh everyday at the funny things they say (especially to each other!) They also make our hearts just absolutely melt at the things they say to us and to each other!
They love to play dress up, dancing and singing. They love to go to school, and ask if it's ballet day EVERY day! They are sympathetic, very caring and love babies and other kids. They are generally happy, and love going places! (now don't get me wrong...they are FAR from perfect, but it's their birthday we have to talk about all the wonderful things! :) They ask every day mommy where are we going today! YEs they are VERY social kids and we have no idea where they got that from! They wake up talking to each other and go to sleep talking to each other. When they were younger I sometimes wished I would have had them one at a time to really get to enjoy them as babies. Now I can't imagine enjoying them any other way than together. They have such a sweet and special bond that I know that wouldn't be the same if they weren't born at the same time.
Yes they can be double trouble, but they are triple the laughs, love, and hugs!!!!!!
We love you girls!!!!!!
Here are a few of the millions of pics I took today..I will post many more but don't have time tonight.....
The girls have been asking for earings (Abigail has been asking for Diamond earings!) We decided to let them get them on their thrid birthday.
Amelia did great...Cried out and then that was it. Abigail wasn't even sure if she wanted them after Amelia had yelled out. She was VERY dramatic for quite some time after. Tonight she is loving them and telling the dogs not to touch her princess earings!
These were taken soon after (Abigail's was taken right after..can you tell?)
I wanted to do a pink girly room for the girls BIG girl room. Brian thought I was crazy wanting stripes AND polka dots in one room. It came out soooooo cute!! The girls went to MeMe and Paw Paws house so we could get it done all in one weekend. When the girls came home they were soooo excited. They love their new girly princess room, and so do I!!!
I will post more pictures of the whole room once their new beds are here and new curtains etc.
These are really the only pics I could get around all the furniture being in the middle of the room.
Yes Brian was amazing and added the chair railing and the squares below it!!
The girls THIRD birthday is tommorrow. I can't even believe it. We decided to change from the nursery room to a BIG girl room. We painfully had to paint over Brian's beautiful mural. Abigail has a hard time with change sometimes so we got the kiddos involved.....
YES MY HANDS ARE FULL........ BUT YOU SHOULD SEE HOW FULL MY HEART IS!
Amelia and Abigail are our two little miracles that are the light of our lives. We adore every day and moment with them. Of course I try to capture every moment on film, so I will never forget a day in their lives. Come visit us and see what our we have been doing daily in our crazy busy lives!
