Working together

Andrew was using Chloe's little table to do some work today, and Chloe wanted to work with him. So he set her up using the laptop tray and a pencil and paper, just like him. She was so excited to be working with Daddy! So cute!!

Ballet party!

Today we celebrated Emelyn and Delaney's birthday with a ballet party. Happy 3rd birthday, girls!! Chloe borrowed this beautiful outfit from Shae.
Looking a bit shy on the awesome stage Jodi made.
One of the twins (sorry, can't figure out which one), Chloe, and Marie Clare. Love MC's expression and Chloe with her ballerina arms!
I think the highlight of the party for Chloe and Roshni was this new dollhouse!

Dentist visit

Today, Chloe went to her first dentist appointment. We went to Kids Care on Greenback--they had been recommended to me my multiple people. I am so thankful that I listened to the advice and took her there; they were amazing!!! This morning, when I told Chloe that we were going to the dentist, she started whining and said she didn't want to go. I told her that her dentist's name is Dr. Candy, and Chloe laughed and said that she would go.

When we got to the office, she was so excited about the princess movie showing and the video games. When Chloe's name was called, she stood up and starting walking into the treatment area all by herself! Kim, the hygienist, showed Chloe her "princess chair" and Chloe climbed right up. It was really sweet the way Kim took time to show Chloe everything and make it fun for her. The spinning toothbrush was "Mr. Tickles" and the "princess cape" that Chloe wore during her xrays had a big smiley face on it, so it was "Mr. Smiley." They had Chloe wear sunglasses and earphones, and she got to watch Princess and the Frog that was showing on the TV in the ceiling while she had her teeth examined and cleaned. Chloe thought that was super cool! After she was finished, Chloe came over to me for a hug and said that her princess teeth were all clean!!

Dr. Candy said that Chloe's teeth look great: no cavities! Chloe was so well behaved, and her dentist said that Chloe was a model patient, and she wishes that all little girls would act like her! I am so proud of my big girl!!!!

Bike Ride

Chloe wanted to go to the park today with Andrew, and decided that they were going to ride their bikes there. The challenge with riding to the park is that there are not sidewalks between our house and the park, or even a well paved shoulder to ride on. Chloe attempted to ride, but Andrew ended up having to carry her bike for much of the ride. Once at the park, Chloe was able to ride on the paths there--much easier than the ride to the park!!

ready to go!
Micah wants to go too!

Cute Micah

We had our family birthday party to celebrate Elaine and me. When I checked on Micah during dinner, this is how I found him...
wearing a clown wig and with a pile of toys in front of him!! So cute that his cousins were playing with him!
And this is a sweet picture that Elaine took last week of Shae holding Micah. Love it!

I love how she is holding on tight here!
Look at those smiles!
Then Chloe wanted me to cuddle Micah so she could take a picture!
