A portrait of each of my children every month: April

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

I failed miserably about posting this and taking specific photos of each child but I am at the stage in my life where I am just happy to get it done :)  Thank goodness for iPhone photos! #winning

Stella: you continue to be the leader in fun stuff with your brother and sister.  You are always arranging some fun scare for anyone walking into the house or planning a "fake sleep," you make forts and scream at your brother for wrecking them but then make up 2 seconds later.  I am amazed at how well you play and interact with other children younger and older than yourself.  You have always been a child that has impressed me in more ways than I can list.  This month you were so helpful with Marlo and Dash, keeping them busy so I can get stuff done with two hands.  We may clash most of the time but at the end of the day I love to sneak into your room and kiss you goodnight.  <3

Dash: this month you got your hair cut - SHORT.  I was ridden with anxiety the day it happened because it was out of my control (I have self-admitted control issues).  Daddy did such a good job and even though it makes you look older I cannot imagine it any other way.   You continue to make us laugh daily.   You STILL love your baby sister.  You love holding her and have begun carrying her around just like the cat..  Watch out!  Luckily she is becoming sturdier by the day.  One of my favorite things you do is when you see something cute.  You exclaim... OHHHHHH Mommy look that squirrel it is so cute... in that sweet little voice of yours.  Makes my heart smile.  
You are also working at testing my limits and I have to constantly watch you or I regret it.

Marlo: this month was a big one for you.  You started sitting up all by yourself by 4 1/2 months.  This is WAY sooner than any of the other kids!  You must feel the need to do things faster so you can fit in... DON"T! I need you to stay little.  
You also we're baptized this month and turned 5 months.  I cannot figure out how this time has gone by so quickly and I really do try and soak up every smile, giggle, baby talk and kiss your face more than you probably want.  You got to meet one of my favorite people in the whole world this month, your great grandma Shirley, and I will never forget the look on her face when she squeezed you in joy.  We enjoyed every bit of nice weather that we had in April and I even managed to get in some photos.
