I Heart Faces: White

White is the theme at I Heart Faces this week.  Perfect time for a BUBBLE BATH!

We don't do bubble baths very often around here, but when we do, they sure are a lot of fun!  Matthew was so excited to get the bubbles all over him and even dip his face in a few times.

A Boy and His Dog

Maddie is such a great dog.. we could not have asked for a better four legged friend!  Matthew adores her too. He is probably her biggest fan - she scores most of her treats because of him and she knows exactly where to hang out during meal times.  If he doesn't accidentally drop something, he'll do it on purpose.  Sometimes I wonder if Matthew thinks he is a dog too.  I've even caught him dipping his mouth into the water bowl for a quick drink!! YUCK!!   They do get along so well ... there is just something special about a boy and his dog.

I Heart Faces: Friendship

Before Matthew was born, I wasn't sure how Emily would take to becoming a big sister and not being the youngest anymore.  And to complicate it even more, I was having a boy!  We all thought he'd be a girl since I already had two girls.  We were all a little shocked!  But since he was born (he is almost 2 now!), she has been an AMAZING big sister...

This picture exemplifies their special friendship.  She is always trying to make him laugh or smile and she can make him laugh like no one else.   They dance, play and read together.  They love being just plain silly together. Emily could entertain him for hours.  She kisses his boo boos when he is hurt and hugs him if he is sad.   I now know that she was meant to be his big sister.  I love watching the bond between them grow each and every day!

Off to school

My favorite little girls (a.k.a. Katie and Emily) are growing up so fast. They started school this week.  4th grade and 1st grade - yow-sa!  But they are off to a rockin start!  So far so good.  I think it is going to be a good year!
