Funny Kacie

Kacie can be so funny sometimes. We have been getting beautiful weather and today was no exception. We decided the best way to take advantage of this day was to go to Notre Dame and go for a walk along the rivers. I think alot of people had the same idea. There was tons of people out. A lot of them were runners. As we were walking, there was a group of guys running past us. Kacie in her load voice, which usually isn't very load but this time it was, said "Mom, why are those boys running Naked?" Of course they weren't they just had their shirts off. but she got a lot of heads to turn toward those boys (especially mine!). The boys that were running thought it was funny. I saw a few of them laugh. Matt and I had to laugh. We will let her find out on her own the difference between girls and boys. I am sure it won't take long. She has a little brother that will help her figure things out. That reminds me of when Ryan first noticed the difference in Luke. I was changing his diaper one time and she asked me why Luke had a different peepee. It's funny what kids say when a new baby comes into the home. One night as we were saying our family prayers. It was Kacie's turn. She started to bless everyone in the family and also thanked Heavenly Father for the food and then she kind of hesitated for a minute looking at Luke and then said "thank you for mommy's boobies so that Luke can eat." I was not expecting that and I started laughing really hard. Kacie got a little embarrassed. I couldn't help it. It was very funny.
We have lots of mommy's here. The girls love to take care of Luke. Sometimes it is to much love, but we started him on solids about a week ago. He doesn't need anymore extra weight but it was time. The girls were so excited to feed him. It was an exciting event. I am always asked by Ryan and Kacie if they can feed him. I have to admit they do a great job and I love that my hands are free for a short moment which is nice. The clean up is a different story but I do enjoy letting them. Here are a few picures of what it is like during feeding time.
Maybe this is the reason for his weight gain? He eats for two.
Well, I will leave you with the pictures we took at Notre Dame. It is so beautiful.

Drama Queen

Ryan Started Preschool Finally this week. I look forward to school days just as much as she does. Going from three kids to two for only two and a half hours is awesome. Sunday the day before her first day of school we had family night and we talked about school and what to expect. She was very concerned about meeting new friends. I told her that she needs to go up to the kids and ask them if they want to be her friend. I also said that they will be nervous just like she would be so she needs to go up and ask them first. When I picked her up after her first day of school I asked her how it went and she told me that she went up to a little girl and asked if she wanted to be her friend and the little girl told her "No." So she went to another little boy and asked him if he wanted to be her friend and he told her "No" also. Ryan looked at me with a sad face. It was really cute. We didn't go over what to do when they say "no." So I felt bad. I just told her that they need some time and that they are just really nervous. She tried it the next day and she told me she finally found one that said yes. She was very happy. She told me that the names of her friends are Kira, Shealee and Tyson. (She just named her cousins.) On Sunday Ryan was caught brushing her teeth on the stage at church. Apparently she brought her toothpaste and toothbrush. I try to monitor what the girls have before we enter but I must have missed this. From what I was told It was a pretty funny sight. She also wore her princess crown to church. She was the most beautiful princess there. It was a battle I was not going to win so I just have to let it go. We go through a lot of Drama in our house. I really have a hard time keeping from laughing at their drama. One day Luke was acting a little fussy all day. I just thought he was teething. Well come to find out as I was putting him to bed I found a tight hair band around his wrist. I couldn't see it very well. You could lose anything on his body. There are alot of rolls. He was very happy when I took it off. When I confronted Ryan she pulled lots of drama on me and said she was just putting on a bracelett for him and some how I turned into the bad guy. She said "the reason why I am upset is because everyone is being mean to me." Then she puts her best sad face on. I couldn't help from laughing. I even got fake tears from her. Ryan is the cutest thing ever. Here are some cute pictures of Ryan through out the years. Our little drama queen!
Ryan was always wearing these boots. They were her favorite. She called them her "Dance'n Boots."
