This is one of the funniest things I've seen - I had to share it. My friend Loran posted this on facebook: "This is what happens when Sam and Kate get too quiet...they were "protecting" their palace!!! Still laughing." (Sam & Kate are 4 & 2ish I think)
Here's a couple of new videos of the girls.
This is how Athelie greets Stasiya after naps.
And this is Stas singing and playing in her crib. She moves herself all over the place. She was happy to just hang out in there for a while.
I made this. I like it quite a bit.
In front of my art desk.
There are 35 flowers total. All made out of paper. It took a while to make. I've been working on this project for the last month. Making 1 or 2 flowers a day. Then I had to figure out what to hang them on and how to hang them. I ended up painting a corkboard white and using push pins and corasage pens to attach the flowers. It was quite fun. I love the way it turned out.

5 months old
She turned 5 months a few days ago (I'm running late posting this). Here's a few more pics from this month.

She's getting so big! I can't believe she'll be 2 next month - she'll always be my baby girl though. She's so much fun. She has such a fun personality. It's fun seeing her little mind at work and the different things she thinks up.
Pushing her cat and baby doll in the stroller around the front yard. (It was all her idea.)
All dress up and ready to go. Note the hairbands, sunglasses, bracelet (actually a hair tie), and shoes - she put them all on by herself.
And she picked out the cat, which she calls "chat" at a store this past weekend.
She hasn't put him down since then.
Every morning I wake up to Stasiya fussing because her big sister Athélie has climbed into her bed, fallen on top of her, and woken her up abruptly. I guess this is the downfall to the girls sharing a room. Taylee thinks it is a fun game. Sometimes when I come into the room, Athélie has rolled Stasiya over while she is still swaddled, poor thing. It is kind of funny. I want to laugh. But its more trouble than anything. I have to rush to their room as soon as I hear a peep before any damage is done. (This also happens after nap time too.)
My Dad and step-mom Donna came to visit us this past week. We really enjoyed having them here. Plus, the girls loved having them around - they got lots of loving and had lots of fun playing with them.
