Just like her Mama!

Megan is constantly saying funny things that just crack us up! I need to start writing them down for memories sake. Here are a couple of recent quotes!

A couple of mornings ago, Megan was waking up as Tim was leaving for work, so Tim went into her room to give her a hug and kiss goodbye. On his way out of her room, she says to him, "Don't forget your lunch!" He just laughed. (I tell him that every morning along with what I have packed for him.) Then as he is walking out and she hears the door shut, she hollers once again, "Lunch, Daddy, Lunch!"

Then just tonight, I had just given Megan a bath and was getting her dressed for bed. Tim was downstairs with Emily playing his Tiger Woods golf game on the WII. We heard him say, "ARGHH!!". (He was struggling on a hole in his golfing game). I hear Megan say, "Sorry Babe, Sorry, honey." Again, I just busted out laughing! (She has obviously heard me say that a time or two!)

She keeps us laughing with her comments. She tends to have a lot of the same characteristics as me. (Tim says we should have named her Kristen Jr.!). That is a scary to me though as I am not sure I want her to have some of my characteristics. It really makes me look at my life and challenge me to be Christlike in my daily life. A verse I was thinking on that really needs to be on my mind daily is Psalm 19:14:

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.

2 1/2 & 4 Months!

Well, I am a little late posting this. Megan was 2 1/2 years old on April 29th. Emily was 4 months on May 5. Here is a little update on my little girls!

Megan is a very fun, energetic girl! She is always on the go and keeps us busy and laughing. She loves her little sister and gives her hugs and kisses. She likes playing with her and her toys (I am not sure why baby toys seem so much fun to her when Emily is playing with them, but they do!). She has been pretty gentle with her so far so that is nice. Megan has turned us into a Frog family recently where I am Mama Froggy, Tim is Daddy Froggy, Megan is Megan Froggy, and Emily is Baby Froggy. She will hop up to us saying ribbet, ribbet and answer me saying yes, Mama Froggy. She has also been wanting to go to school lately and has even her bags packed to go to school. She loves playing with her play dough and making different things. She enjoys going to story hour at the library once a week and also enjoys her playgroup that we are able to meet with once a week or so as well. She is very excited that we will be able to go swimming in Nana's pool soon! I can't believe she is halfway to 3 years old....

Emily is 4 months now. She weighs 13 lbs. 3 oz (50%)and is 25 inches long (75%). She is a very happy baby. She gives us a lot of smiles and laughs. She loves watching her big sister play. She loves her saucer, and Megan is trying to teach her how to use all the toys on it. She sleeps very well. The last 2 nights, I took out the late night feeding, and she actually went from like 8:30-7:30 or so!! (I tried taking out the feeding 2 other times, but I had to get up for a wonderful middle of the night feeding so I am glad it looks like we are on track to be done with that feeding!). She takes three naps during the day as well. She goes to sleep very nicely in her crib by herself. She has been such a joy to us!

We love our little two girls! We are so thankful to the Lord for our little family of four. We can't believe at how fast our girls are growing. God is so good!
