Speak For Yourself!

Sometimes the children will say some pretty funny things, as all children do, and frequently I will record them down for future remembrance. But they're not the only ones worthy of their words being published as Weston (the adult) can be pretty amusing sometimes.

Yesterday, Weston and I were watching this makeover show and the girl that received the makover was pretty plain and a little overweight. When she was presented after being made over I said, "Wow! She looks so good she makes me want to gain fifteen pounds!"

Weston dryly responded, "But you've already gained fifteen pounds."

(Thanks, Dear, you're the best! He claims it's all due to my pregnancy, but we'll see.)

Then, last night, Roman started crying from his bedroom and woke me up. I had already gotten up with Greggory so I nudged Weston to go help Roman. He mumbled something and lay still. I nudged him again, and again, until finally he burst out,

"Roman's just mad because he found out who the new judge is!" and then promptly rolled over and started snoring away again.

I guess that's a lawyer for you.

Today I had my 20-week ultrasound. Everything checked out perfectly and we also found out that we are having a baby girl! We were excited, but probably not as excited as Brooklyn. After having almost walked out of the hospital with both Roman and Greggory after finding out their genders, she was crazy with joy on finding out about finally getting a little sister. She's been waiting a long time.

Just wanted to make a public announcement to everyone that we have two new additions to our growing family! We have discovered twins, a girl and a boy, and they are adorable! We allowed Brooklyn and Roman to help name them and so "Rose" and "Goat" they are!

Pictures coming soon...

First Dentist Visit:

two nervous children,

one mom excited to see this milestone reached in her children's lives,

a LOT of persuasion to said children just to have the dentist look into each of their mouths and count their teeth,

two cavities spotted (uh-oh--too much candy for one little girl),

two earned toothbrushes,

and finally...

homemade chocolate cake at home to congratulate them on their victory.

(So maybe the cavities were a combined effort)

It's been a while since we have posted so I will update you on our latest and greatest:

Weston has been very enthusiastic in finishing our basement. Which means that every Saturday from now until the 4th of July is now booked.

Brooklyn is nearing the completion of her first year of dance and will mark that triumph with a recital in May. She's excited about being on a stage and I think she's already dreaming of stardom.

Roman is busy being the best boy he can be. (alliteration, anyone?) He's teaching Greggory all kinds of neat boy tricks while still being able to play princess with his sister. He's very well-rounded.

Greggory just learned how to climb down the stairs. So now anything that ends up in his chubby little fist is inevitably tossed down the stairs soley for the purpose of having to fetch it.

I have recently taken a pediatric first aid and cpr class and in the class I learned about all the ways children could get hurt. I think I am now more paranoid after having been cpr certified than before. I also started taken my advanced master gardener classes and I am planning on co-teaching a jr. master gardener class for children this summer. Brooklyn will be able to attend with me and she is very excited to put it mildly.

So, that is about it for now. I do get to take the kids to the dentist for the first time this afternoon so maybe that will make for a more interesting post topic next time.
