Wednesday night

Yes, I've been slacking. There's not really much new these days. But I assume eventually I'll get into a more regular routine of posting. For now, sporadic is the best you'll get

Dan and Ris are at church. Arianna is laying on the changing mat, on the floor. I was nursing her when I heard her start pooping, so she's laying there, stripped, until she's done. She likes to oooooze all over her clothes. And I don't like to clean that up. Lol.

It's absolutely gorgeous outside. Dan and I have disagreeing views on beautiful weather. It makes him want to live in Florida or somewhere that's nice all the time. But it makes me appreciate it even more when we have to go through miserable winters before the warm summer! There's just something about warmth after yucky weather that makes me happy and in a good mood!

Marissa's doing well. Still doing awesome going potty! She does have this problem though: the second we walk into Meijer, she has to go! Even if she just went at home, or she hasn't gone in a while, or it's the first store we go to, or we've been out for a's ridiculous! Lol. She does this "ribbit-ribbit" jumping thing to Arianna that makes Arianna crack up laughing! It's so cute! We've finally been able to go outside and play on her swings and slide (since it stopped raining all the time), and she LOVES it. She squeals and "weeeeheeeeee"s the entire time! It's hard to find something to do with Arianna when we're out there though. I've put her in my Babyhawk Mei Tai carrier a few times, and she likes to nap in that. But she really hates how bright the sun is, and hats are just annoying.

Arianna is still sleeping all night. The other day it was 11 hours! I love when she sleeps til 8:30 or 9, but any later and it just about kills me. This morning she woke up at 6:15, nursed, then fell back asleep til 10:30! This girl loves to sleep! Her afternoon nap today was from 2-6:30. She sleeps for HUGE chunks, but then is awake for most of the rest of the day. She is so happy and smiley and laughing. She's also been sucking her fingers/thumb a lot lately. She doesn't want to nurse for comfort as much anymore, but she loves to suck her fingers, and she fell asleep three times yesterday to sucking on them! She's just so content all the time - she's definitely just as "low maintenance" as Marissa was! Which makes her really easy to enjoy!

I got the sheet music to the two lullabies from the Twilight movie - beautiful piano pieces! I just wish I could still play like I used to. Maybe these songs will inspire me to get back at it though...

Well, I think Arianna is done pooping. Lol. So I'll go change her now. Ewwww...

Here's a picture I took after I took the girls to get a free portrait done at Sears:

I'm with you on the weather... If it's ALWAYS nice you definitely take it for granted but when it's usually crappy, nice days and seasons mean that much more.

Your girls are absolutely beautiful!!
