You Get What You Deserve

You're probably wondering what this picture is and why I've posted it.

It's a dead bird.

Precisely, the dead bird I caught my children playing with.

They built a nest in a bucket for it and were currently scouring the yard for worms when I discovered them.

You're probably wondering what I was doing while I was neglecting allowing my children the responsibility of some independence.

I might have been sneaking a few of their incredibly yummy vanilla cupcake flavored goldfish.  And watching a re-run of the originial BH 90210.

Shameful, I know.

Well, I got what I deserved.

Evolution of a Black Eye

Be careful if you are ever playing catch in the back yard with your dad.  You might miss and the baseball might hit you in the eye.

You'll then switch to a softball and get hit in the eye again!

If that happens, your eye will probably look like this.

Then it will look like this

and then this

and after about a week, it will finally start to look normal!

Charlie's Update

Right at 2.5, Charles is the full embiodiment of everything 2.
Yes, this does mean he can throw an awesome tantrum.
He remains ever serious about his food.
After all, you don't reach 36 lbs at 2 and a half years of age by eating lightly.

He seems to understand his role as youngest child and has embraced it by becoming our class clown.  He will do anything to get a laugh and capitalizes on the fact that he can make us laugh frequently.

 And pretty much whatever Jack and Melody want to do, Charlie demands to be right in the middle of. 

See? What did I tell you...he's two all the way!

Melody Update

Ever since she turned 4, Melody has been growing in leaps and bounds.  It's making me so sad and happy at the same time.  I miss her little baby voice.  Giraffe is no longer ba-graff and she can even say "girl" the right way now!  She's so proud of herself and frequently runs up to me to say all kinds of words.

Like her brother, Jack, she as develped an insatiable love of reading.  She has even memorized this entire Mother Goose book!

She has been taking ballet and tap for a few months now with her best bud Ava.  She loves it and is quite the dancer.
