Athélie saying her name - so cute!

Stasiya's 3 months old today! Yay! Cant' believe how fast the time has flown by. She's grown so much. She's gotten so strong, holding her head up and rolling over. She has a cute little personality and seems to be quite a people person. She also likes to be on her own schedule, especially at night when we put her down. Sometimes she lets us know she is not ready to go to sleep - and then she'll stay up for hours just cooing and looking around before she's ready to go down for the night. She loves to be held and to hold onto fingers and to look at her sister. She smiles a lot. She is a joy to have.

Marc and I took the girls downtown for the Ducky Derby today. It was a lot of fun with tons of people. This is an annual event that raises money for a local charity. You buy a duck beforehand and then it "lines up" behind a barrier and when the raise starts the barrier is removed and the ducks race down the water. The person whose ducky arrives first through a shoot wins free groceries for a year. Thousands of duckys are released and some of them get caught in the falls. With an emcee who gives play by play action similar to the Kentucky Derby - it is a lot of fun. Here's a few pics:
Taylee snacked on an apple during the race.
And here's Stasiya - she just hung out in the stroller the whole time.
I don't know why the picture uploaded upside down.
This was the only picture of me and both girls together on this Mother's Day weekend.
Not very good - I know. My hair is getting long - I'm thinking about chopping it off again.
After our picnic, Marc and Taylee raced.
