Shaving Cream Art

I let Kate have a "special day" (no rest time) so we could do a fun art project.  I saw this on pinterest and thought Kate would love it.  It is so's just shaving cream, food coloring, paper and a scraper. 

Kate mixing the food coloring into the shaving cream...

Then you lay the paper flat on your design, pull it up and then scrap the excess shaving cream off.  It leaves a marbleized picture on your painting.  We did it 4 times...each one got better.

For the last one, we made a rainbow...Kate's latest favorite thing.  She loved it! 

Camryn's 4 month appt

Camryn had her 4 month appointment this morning.  She grew 2.5 inches and gained 3 pounds in the last 2 months...whoa!

She got 2 shots...but she was a CHAMP!  She didn't cry after the first one and barely cried after the 2nd.  Look at those chunky thighs!
Her 4 months stats:
Height: 25 1/2 inches
Weight: 14 lbs 5 oz
and just for fun Kate and Brynlee's 4 month stats were: 
K: 25 1/4 inches and 14 lbs 12 oz 
B: 24 1/4 inches and 14 lbs 4 oz

We are trying to break her of her arms being swaddled so I gave her lambie at naptime.  It blends in with her sleep sack but she was so sweet holding it...

She loves her sisters!

Princess tattoos as potty and worst idea ever.  She's basically wearing her sticker chart around...for days!

Brynlee carried her mail around from JuJu for 2 days.

Quinn and Kate on a bike ride at CC's house.  Love these 2.

Kate was so excited to find out Brynlee is now wearing panties.  The first thing she did was make sure they were wearing matching ones.  Hope this isn't an everyday day thing...not sure this momma can make everything match!

CC sent Kate home with a pinkalicious puzzle.  As Kate keeps telling us..."It's 60 pieces!"
She's actually pretty good at it!


Both girls had dentist appointments this morning. Kate did great!  She went back all by herself and got a great report.  Then it was Bryn's turn.  This was her first time at the dentist.  She did good for the cleaning and even the x-rays...then when she had to get back in the chair for the dentist to look at her teeth...a small meltdown ensued.  She was done...and didn't understand why she had to get back in the chair.  Besides the meltdown...she got a great report!

Brynlee's 1st dentist appt...

Potty Train-ING

We are Potty Train-ING Brynlee.  This is a work in progress for sure.  The 1st day and a half weren't great.  She was full of excuses why she couldn't go in the potty.  My favorite was "I don't want to sit on the potty; It's Dangerous."  The other funny thing she kept saying while trying with no success was "my potty isn't working."  But I think we've turned a corner.  Today she had NO accidents!!!  But she is not potty trained.  She still doesn't tell me when she needs to go.  I am learning to read her signals.  We spend a lot of time sitting on the potty.  She likes company...and to be read books.  She is so different than Kate...not bad or good...just different. 

Princess Panties...what she picked at Target!

Potty Rewards!

Day 1...juicing up!  We spent most of the afternoon on the patio.

So cute in her panties!

We took turns sitting with her...

1st SUCCESS!!!  She was sooooo proud!

Trying to keep her off the carpet.  We have done this puzzle over and over and over and over and...

Sweet girl reading a magazine...


These are random pictures off my phone from the past few weeks.

Kate got a fever virus and was "out" for a few days.  This is what we did for most of that time...pallet on the floor watching Sophia the First.

Parker and I went to the Dave Matthews concert.  So much fun!

Brynlee's started coloring with her left hand...could she be a lefty like her momma?

My last quiet lunch before Kate and Brynlee are out for summer.  Camryn and I enjoyed every minute.

My first time at Top Golf...

Parker and Josh...

Kate is at CC and Papa Lon's for the weekend so Brynlee got a new bath buddy!

What Camryn's doing...

She's getting better at tummy time.  She likes it for the first few minutes and then she's done. 

She usually manages to get a hand by her face, no matter how tight she is swaddled. 

And she has started playing with the toys on her playmat! 

Can't get enough of this sweet little girl!
Here are a few more from my camera...
