Ahh, Tuesdays.

So, we've been getting back in the swing of things around here and I will say that it's good to be back on a schedule. As for the kiddos and what's going on with them...

Avonlea is growing out her bangs as you can see here in the picture (notice the very pointy ponytail!). I wanted to do this a LONG time ago, but got impatient with the "fuss" so here we go again. Her hair is super short so it shouldn't take too long to get it to the length of her hair.

Lincoln loves doing anything his big sister does (or any other older child around him). He has to go outside when Avy goes outside, color when she's coloring (in which he usually eats the crayons), eat when she's eating, playing with a certain toy when she's playing with it and brush his teeth when she's brushing her teeth. Don't get me wrong, this is a good habit, but when both kids want to brush their teeth at the same time and there's one very small and narrow stool to stand on, push can come to shove amongst siblings. Avy is quite patient with him and corrects him often. What a good big sister. So, here are the kids brushing their teeth.

The Linkster is also wearing shoes these days (thank the Lord he can walk because 27 pounds gets heavy to carry all the time). I had a sweet friend give us some outgrown shoes of her son's (thank Christina!) and here is Lincoln trying them on for the first time today. He did pretty good.

Go for it Kelli! It's funny how much Avy and Aleah look alike especially with Avy's bangs pulled back!! It won't be long until a simple hair clip will keep them in place. PS. We have the same teeth brushing problems in our house! But imagine 3 (larger children) pushing and shoving on a bathroom stool!!!! :)

I love those pictures of Avonlea, especially the second one where she's making the face. Too cute! I'm a little jealous of Lincoln walking, too. Kayleigh also just got her first pair of shoes! We FINALLY found some that fit!!

Hi. My name is Kelli. I read your blog from time to time, I can't remember how I found it. I looked at it first because we spell our names the same. I like the tips you have about encouraging your daughter, I have a 4 1/2 year old and I have actually used some of the suggestions. I also have a 1 1/2 year old boy. He also wants to do everything that Jamison does and it's funny because the main thing is brushing his teeth.
So, just a friendly hello from a fello Kelli.

I just cannot believe how big Linkster is getting...AMAZING. I love the no bang look, how is she doing with it?

Miss you!
