a conversation with zoey

All three girls and I were in the car going to pick up Dave at work...

Me: "Hey, Zoey, can you peek into Maggie's carseat and see what she's doing?"

Zo: "She's chillin' a villain."

Me: *smile* "Could you cover her little feet with that pink blanket?"

Zo: "I already did, mom. I thought her feet might be cold."

She is such a good big sister!

"I love chicken fries!"

A reading by Zoey Michele of Moo, Baa, La la la by Sandra Boynton.

The last line of this book is..."It's quiet now. What do you say?" Zoey's answer to that question lately is, "I love chicken fries." I have no idea where she got that. She's never had a chicken fry. I'm not even sure I know what they are. Regardless, I love how she "reads" to her little sister.

Look who's 2!!!

Little Miss Ruby Ellen turned 2 on March 21st. The day started off with this conversation.

me: "Good morning, Ruby. Today is your birthday! You're 2!"
ruby: "Nooooo." *smiling*
me: "Yes, it's true! You're 2 years old."
ruby: "Nooooooooo." *still smiling*

It took me a bit to convince her she was no longer 1 but I think she has fully embraced being 2. Ruby has become our little entertainer. She loves to make people laugh and she's really good at it, too. Her facial expressions are hilarious and the more positive feedback she receives, the sillier she gets. Also, in the past few weeks she has started talking so much more which has given her more opportunities to make us smile. Ruby is also a very sweet little girl and she's very observant. After her party was over, Zoey was a little upset and started to cry. Without being asked, Ruby went into the bathroom and brought Zoey a tissue. She walked right up to her big sister and dabbed at her tears. It's so much fun to see how different our girls are and I find so much joy in seeing them play together and love on each other.

two months old

How can my baby already be two months old? Our little Maggie Faye is growing and changing every day. Her personality is starting to show more and more. She seems to be pretty laid back and easy going. She likes to watch her big sisters play and she loves to be held and cuddled. She's not very chatty, yet, but she has started smiling at her toys. :)

Here are her stats:
height: 22 3/4 in (60%)
weight: 11 lbs (50%)

My sweet little Maggie Faye

Yep, her eyes are still blue. 

 Starting to those little fists.

And...we're done with the photo shoot.
