I was doing the dishes this morning when Kate yells, "Moooommy, Uyia's donen up in the stairs!!!!!" Sure enough, I ran in to see Olivia on the 3rd step. She turned around and had the biggest, most satisfied grin on her face. I stood behind her while she walked the rest of the way up - all 16. What a big girl she is!
I always thought I would be so glad when Kathryn learned to talk and could just tell me what she wanted. Well, my wish has now come true, and how does the old saying go? "Be careful what you wish for..." No, really, it is nice, but she sure is an opinionated little 2 year old. Yesterday I asked her what she wanted for lunch. She said, "Ummm... how 'bout chotate?" Of course, like any good mother I quickly reminded her we don't have chocolate for lunch, then asked her again what she would like. "Ummm... how 'bout peanut butter san-ich?" Now if I could just get Brad to tell me what he wants :).Gramma and Aunt Norma took us to the zoo last week. It was such a fun day, and the girls did great. We were there from 8:30 - 12:00 and Olivia didn't even make a peep. She was so content to just ride along and eat puffed corn :).

I thought the same thing about the talking, but now I can't get them to hush!!!!! Now I guess I know what Mom and Dad went thru with me!! Oh.....It sure is a lot of fun. Kids say the funniest things. Jenna's new thing is, "what's up with that Momma?"......Lindsey uses me the wrong way. Tonight on the way home from services, she said "hold me hand Momma".......they are too funny! I cannot wait to get them all together.

Those wagons are great! You can even get a canopy to attach. I'll definately have to get one when more babes come along. Then again, Shelby will probably just want to walk by then!

Regarding Olivia climbing the steps ... one benefit to having an older child, I think, would be their ability to "appropriately" tattle. Like, be the police when the baby is about to kill herself! :)

I am about those new goblets. They look fun, too.

Love, MOM
