Jane is 4 months old today! It has been so fun having Jane as a part of our family.... the kids love her and seem to have more patience for her than for each other :) Jane is now sleeping through the night (10-12 hours straight) on most nights with minimal interference needed from us and she's in her own room. She stinks at napping unless I hold her the entire time... on a completely unrelated topic, I'm not getting much done during the day... ok, not completely unrelated :) Happy 4 months Janie Bear!
Micah can be quite distracting during photo sessions....
In honor of the summer Olympics coming up, Jane was practicing her archery form :)
Micah had his Spring program at school on Monday night. Honestly, our expectations were pretty low and we had no idea how he'd do.
Welllllll, Nate and I were basically busting a gut the entire time Micah was on stage. He didn't want to sing, but he stepped about two feet in front of the rest of he kids and faced completely the wrong direction. Then at some point in the song, he started doing this....
Can you see him? He's behind he right hand speaker :) Yup, he was "that kid". There is one in every young recital that either by their enthusiasm or total lack thereof draws your attention to them. At one point he was tugging on his pants and Nate and I simultaneously turned to each other and said "I hope he doesn't take his pants off!!" and then we laughed some more. We were really proud of him though, he stayed up there the whole time and didn't throw a fit... that's a winning performance for him at this point :)
Or a theater perhaps :) I got the idea of making a puppet theater for the kids for Christmas, and when I found the idea on Pinterest of making a doorway theater, I knew it was a winner :) The only problem was that I couldn't wait until Christmas to make one. Sooooo, I decided it would be perfect for my friend's little girl who just turned 4. She is fun and talkative and I knew she could make those puppets come to life. So I made her the theater and some other friends got her some great puppets. I was really happy with how it turned out!
The little ties are velcro and can be easily undone to close the curtains and protect the mystery of backstage ;-) My friend sent me this picture of the theater in action and I'm just tickled pink that this sweet 4 year old liked it as much as I did.
and other reasons why I'll never be popular." It's the title of a book I'm considering writing ;-) This is the kind of thing that I think about while I'm trapped under a sleeping baby. I even came up with chapter ideas (sadly, I had no problem coming up with an extensive list of reasons why I'm not popular), but I'll spare you the details :) I will explain the title though...
I hate leggings- AKA, I'm not trendy... I will never be trendy. I don't understand them. On the very rare occasion that I try to buy something trendy, I feel uncomfortable, unsure and just plain stupid wearing it. Currently included in this category are leggings, long tunic tops, gladiator sandals, skinny jeans and maxi dresses. The list is by no means comprehensive. Maybe I could get Stacy and Clinton to come explain trends to me.... I still don't think I'd wear them, but at least I'd get a new wardrobe :)
