Rain, rain

Last week t-ball practice was canceled due to the threat of sever weather. So what did we do? Go out and play in it of course! By we, I mean Anna. Abby had no interest, and I mostly stood under the porch and took pictures. Can you believe this is the same girl who didn't want to get wet from the sprinkler?

Sprinkler Fun?

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Abby's 2nd birthday. It really feels like I blinked once since her 1st birthday, and here we are a whole year older. I found this fun little caterpillar sprinkler thing that sprays water out of all its legs, and thought it would be perfect. As soon as the wrapping paper came off the box, the begging began. "Pleeeeaaaase can we go outside now? We want to play with the sprinkler, pleeeaaaaaaase!" But it was chilly that day, and we had church the next. Finally Monday came, and it was warm and beautiful and a perfect day to play in the water. So, we got it all set up-got swimsuits on-got sunscreen on-went potty one last time-and finally we were ready to run out and have some fun!

And then this is as close as I could get them to it...
They literally stood there staring at it for less than five minutes, with my Dad and me trying to prompt them to run around and get wet. Then they came back over and said they were ready to go inside.

I know what you're thinking. Best. Gift. Ever! I can't wait to give Anna the other sprinkler thing I got along with Abby's for her birthday. I'm sure she'll love it...

Super Girls!

Grandma made the girls Superman capes, and they love running ("flying") through the house yelling, "Super Anna! Super Abby!" Then they strike this pose: Notice the knee pop? Where does she get this stuff?

Of course, Abby is in "do whatever Anna is doing" mode these days:

So if you're ever in a jam, you know who to call! Super Girls!

Wow! I'm realizing that it's been a while since I posted, and I'm thinking you can guess why. I've been a little busy with this beautiful little boy...Benjamin Leo
born April 15
6lbs 3oz, 19"He's adorable, and everyone is loving him already! This labor was by far the easiest (in case you were wondering), and I've been amazed at how much better I'm feeling this time around. Of course it helps that my Mom and Dad have been here helping keep the girls occupied and the house from falling apart, but we won't talk about how they'll be going home soon. Ok?

Here's Anna being a great big sister. She loves to hold Baby Ben, and he gets a ton of kisses from both big sisters daily.
Both big sisters are loving it, and I feel so blessed to have been given another perfect angel to love on!
