Baa, Moo and Bubbles

Thank you SO MUCH for voting for the girls! I can't believe the response from everyone here - you put us in first place! But now it starts all over again with the top ten so I have to beg and plead with you all to please please please vote ONE more time for Katie and Charlotte. This time we're #2 (on the left hand side of the page - it's really easy!). Thank you so much again!! We are all really excited. :)

Click HERE to vote just one more time!

The girls ARE super cute lately, I have to say. The terrible 18 month period seems to be easing up. Everyone is sleeping better, Katie is not throwing nearly as many tantrums, both of them are at least starting to listen to me, a little... sort of. Eating is going much better, not nearly as messy - even LaLa did GREAT with her fork tonight! A month ago I was ready to pull my hair out and now I am having so much fun with the girls again.

The best part is how much they're really starting to talk. Katie especially will try to say almost everything - you can see her studying your mouth, trying to figure out how to say certain things. Just tonight she pointed at Charlotte and said "LALA!" (though it sounded like Yaya). She also pointed at the tv and yelled "OBAMA! OBAMA!" (although it sounded like MOMAMA MOMAMA! Still, I was so proud!)

I tried to get a video of their mad verbal skills but of course they never like to perform on command and once the camera comes out, all they want is to grab it. The video is pretty comical though - you do get to hear a little bit of them talking, see them both climb all over me, Charlotte hit herself in the head with a duck, and finally everyone have a mini phony meltdown (all in under two minutes!).

And thanks again for voting!!

Love the video! They're too cute! I just voted for the girls! You also reminded me that I need to start (at least try) recording my little man trying to talk also. It's so freakin' cute when babies learn to talk!

You don't know me, but someone on thenest.com posted your blog and told us to vote for your girls.
I was reading through your posts and realized that you are probably the strongest person I ever "met". My brother passed away this past October. He was 21. I was reading your post about Jack and how you wished someone who you didn't expect would bring up his name. I feel that every day, hope that someone will mention Jason. Not my fiance, not our pastor, not my mom, but someone you don't expect to know that he was loved and is missed.
I want you to know that today I will think of Jack. May God bless your little girls and the few memories stay in your heart forever.
Sorry if this was random, but your post moved me to tears and I always think it helps to have people to go through it with you.

My vote is in! I just want someone I know to win. Ok, so maybe I don't KNOW you, but I feel like I do! The girls are too cute and I'm glad you are in an "up" phase of enjoying them.
