One word: BUSY!!!!

Well, I don't know what I am running on, but if I could bottle it and sell it I'd be a millionaire! Exhaustion is the key word around here.....but that doesn't mean we aren't having fun! We are making memories, discovering new things, and running silly! This weekend was a whirlwind. I had 3 back to back Chez Ami parties that went well despite the weather! Thank you to my hostesses for supporting me in this....I love children's clothes and I absolutely love this endeavor that I've taken on! (Side note: I can take orders at anytime!!!! Just let me know how I can help! Rep 578174) Anyways, back to the angels. You can see the pictures of Thomas and Maddy in their Chez Ami from fall...they were feeding each other chex mix before the party....Maddy loves taking care of Thomas. She can be a bit of a stinker sometimes as she is the bossier of the two (don't know where she gets that) and Thomas can be the more "allowing child" but all in all they play so well together and truly love each other. From kisses to hugs to giggles it is obvious these two will be close! I just have to tell you some of the things they are doing. They can take directions soooo well....even 2 and 3 step directions. For example, Thomas had a cloth last night and Maddy wanted it. She LOVES to clean. I told her to go to my drawer and get another one from the kitchen. We were in the living room. She went and came back with 3. I then told her to take 2 back and just keep one. Shannon and I watched as she tried and tried to get two back in the drawer. Mind you , she can't see "in" the drawer, she is just reaching. She put 2 back, kept 1 and was completely content. She then proceeded to clean our heads, the furniture, the floor, etc. I can also give her a sippy and tell her to take a swallow and give some to Thomas which she will do also. Thomas takes directions....but often gets sidetracked...things distract and interest his little curious mind so much. I wish you could see the excitement he gets out of things. He has the most wet and juicy kiss you have ever received!!! It is pure sugar as Nana says!
We are having a blast! They love Baby Morgan soooo much! They try to kiss her, wipe her face (which can be dangerous) and are constantly aware of her being in the room. They check on her lots! Morgan is such a good baby and puts up with A LOT....from all of us! I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but she looks JUST LIKE HER DADDY! She is the most lovable, affectionate child I have ever met. I don't remember Thomas and Maddy requiring me to hold them as much as she does, or needing that constant closeness. She is a peaceful little angel....especially when on your shoulder! However, we are still struggling with nighttime. I am trying the "let her cry" method but it isn't working. She cries till she can't breath...she wants to be on our chests with us.....makes for less than good sleep! Oh well....these days are passing too quickly so why let this get us upset! There will be time for day! These are the moments....these are the memories....what a blessed mama I am!!!
Hope you enjoy the pictures!!!!

Such a fun age. It's neat to witness those wheels turning in their heads as you give directions. Keep having fun with your busy crew!

Kelli.. this by far was one of my most favorite posts in a while... I just loved feeling like I was in the room with all of you... like a fly on the wall! I know you are beyond exhausted.. I know how tired I am by the end of the day with just LG... so I can't even begin to understand where you find your energy... how do you recharge if you don't sleep... must me batteries :) The angels are beautiful... just beautiful!
