Fun and Games

Our friend Kari comes and plays with us at least twice a week. Our favorite game with her is duck, duck,goose. Here she is playing the wheels on the bus. We love Kari! We are going on a trip for a couple of weeks. Mike will be here for part of the time working but the babies and I are planning on a vacation. Whooo Hooooo. A big Merry Christmas to all of our friends that we won't be seeing for awhile. We will miss you!

Jakob, Michael, Jaileigh, and Anthony- They are signing "more" because they want her to play the game more.

Here is video of the babies playing "bounce bounce" in their bed.

Year Check Ups (Again)

We went to St. George to visit my parents for Thanksgiving and Mike flew to Chicago to see his family. It was so nice to get out of the house and to visit family. The babies enjoyed it just as much as we did. We went to the pediatrician the day we got back from our Thanksgiving trip. We had to finish our one year shots. I asked the dr if he could split the shots up so that the babies weren't getting so many at one time and he was fine with that. We will wait until the babies are 2 to get the MMR because I had a severe reaction to it when I was an infant. (I didn't know they changed the MMR from 18 months to 12 months either. When did that happen?)

Also, some BIG news! Jakob and Jaileigh have graduated from the Early Childhood Intervention. At the year evaluations, beginning of November, they tested out. Who would have known that the two smallest would be the quickest to graduate. Our evaluators and teachers are amazed at how well the babies are doing. All of them were walking at 12 months of age, we were told they wouldn't walk until they were closer to 2 years old. Miracles happen everyday at our house! We are so blessed. Michael and Anthony are being kept for "observation". I personally think all the babies are on the same level and they are just keeping two of them to keep an eye on things. : )

So. . . .I have new weights and other stats on the babies. . . . drum roll please

Look at Michaels face. He wants that bow off of her head so bad. Too funny!

Jaileigh and Michael woke up early from naptime one day and were hanging out like they were best buds. They are sharing a muffin at their little table.

Christmas Pictures- A Sneak Peak

We had our annual Christmas pictures taken yesterday and we are so excited to see the final product! The babies were so cute. Anthony was a little stinker but I think we got a couple of cute ones of him. Michael was a show off. He wanted to be in EVERY picture and was really hamming it up. He is usually so reserved, it was cute to see this side of him. Jakob and Jaileigh are always great at pictures. They even know how to "pose".

So here is the Sneak Peak- of course these are not professionally done. We remembered once during the whole picture taking process to take a couple of photos. Our photographer Allison Hayes will have our pictures ready after Thanksgiving, so look for a better update then.

Jakob and Anthony- I've decided that Anthony is a little camera shy (like Grandma) because I can never find pictures of him. He's either camera shy or always on the move and too fast for me to catch.

Jakob getting ready to bowl

Jaileigh is still refusing to play outside so here is a silly inside picture of her. Her daddy put his Harley kerchief on her head and she has her mom's socks on. She is stylin'!

Practicing already - this is her new style, no clothes. She screams everytime I put clothes on her now.

This was the first attempt
Meltdown- Mommy's lap isn't big enough for all of us anymore
Daddy is so proud of Jaileigh's outfit. Jaileigh is not liking it one bit.
