Reading In The Little Red Chair

My little Cheeser =)

Eoin was not sure what to think at his first time sitting in the Little Red Chair.

He wants to see himself in the camara. (He knows that he can see his picture in the back of the camara. Smarty Pants!!)

I asked him, "How big is Eoin?"

"Maybe I' ll pull out ALL the books!!"

Making Cinnamon Rolls!!

We LOVE Baking!!!

Eoin likes to bang his measuring cup!!!

Mommy decided to be brave and make her first attempt at homemade cinnamon rolls on Friday. I never work with yeast because it makes me soooo nervous. My Mother-in-Law makes the best cinnamon rolls in the world, so I never even wanted to try because I knew mine would pale in comparison. The kids ask every day what we are going to do that is FUN. I decided that we would do this for fun and if the rolls were yucky that was O.K. Other than forgetting to put in the butter and egg they tasted okay, just were a little tough =). I made WAYYYY too much icing. I just started following the recipe never even processing that 9 cups of powdered sugar was a whole bag =} I said, "Oh, well, we will just have to make more rolls."

We made another batch on Monday using my new hand mixer with dough hooks, and remembering the butter and egg. They were much better =). I don't know if I will ever make them as well as the Master Baker next door, but we will have fun trying!

We still have half the icing left after 2 batches, and sharing the icing with Mimi (this is what the kids call my Mother-in-Law) for the cinnamon rolls she made. Maybe we will make some sugar cookie cut-outs and dye the icing fun colors?! Guess we will just have to wait and see what the week brings.

The Wonderful World of Imagination!

Thanks for the new PJ's Annie (Aunt Anna)! Princess, Fireman, and Sherriff Who knew wearing PJ's in the middle of the day could be soooo much fun!!

There's a New Sherriff in Town ;)

What a Beautiful Princess!

Annie I Oakley with her little pet dog "Floxie" (She plays that Eoin is her dog Floxie at least once every day. He follows her around crawling and carrying his toy in his mouth. Soooo cute!)

One handsome cowboy!!

Crawling With Perfect Form

Eoin is crawling everywhere. We thought maybe he never would, but when he finally did around 11 months he did so with perfection. He reminds me of one of those crawling dolls. His arms and legs move in perfect rhythm. Ethan and Elysia crawled, but with their own flare. Ethan did the army crawl, and Elysia her own version entirely. I love how each child is soooo different in each and every way.

Get Ready!

Get Set!

And He's Off!!

"I won!!!"

First, we are very excited about our fourth baby due in September! We are thrilled to be having a third boy!! This makes Elysia the official Princess of the family, a title and position she does not mind in the least. =)

Second, Eoin is mobile in a wierd way I guess. He rolls all over the house?! He can scoot backwards, but crawling on his hands and knees has yet to occur. He prefers to roll to wherever he wants to go because he gets very frustrated with being stuck in reverse. =) He can stand up if he is holding onto something. He really wants to walk, but just hasn't gotten the one-foot-in-front-of-the-other part yet. Eoin has his 2 bottom teeth now. He is soooo cute!!
