5 weeks

She had a check up yesterday. She's now 10 lbs and 22 inches long and perfect in everyway!

You might think Rosies favorite thing to eat is candy but it's actually watermelon. When she had surgery on her finger her treat/reward for being so brave was her very own watermelon and a pack of watermelon gum. She will however frequently sigh while eating candy and say "I wish there was watermelon candy"!
So of course the garden had to have its very own watermelon bed this year. Unfortunately so far they are the only seeds that haven't sprouted! Has anybody seen watermelon plants?

Evie wasn't too interested this year - she was busy throwing and chasing the frisbee. I guess the lure of a new skill was just too much. And speaking of new tricks, she just figured out how to do the monkey bars! She can be a bit fussy about that stuff so it was nice to see.

Easter... in no paticular order

Easter morning - the real rosie and evie!
Did you know Jules has eyelashes? The other two didn't have them until they were much, much older. Her hair hasn't fallen out yet either....
Tearing into the baskets and finding the favorite toy - a horrid whistle. What was the easter bunny thinking?
Jules and her first easter bunny! Mama made it and gave to the Easter Bunny! All four of us were crowded around her showing her basket stuff... poor thing didn't quite know what to make of it. She even got a chocolate bunny like sisters but we gave that to Papa.
Our Easter egg bread. It was pretty crummy actually, I need to work on that.
Mimi and Jules hanging out while the rest of the crowd was being wild with the glitter eggs.
What a good Papa!
Hunting for the eggs Papa hid so well.

All three girlies in their matching dresses Mimi and Papa gave them. Their initials were on the collar - so cute. Totally not something I would normally do but they did look absolutely adorable.
I promise Daddy was here, he was just being the unbelievable helpful and running around cooking and cleaning. Well that and avoiding the glitter eggs.

Just Jules doing those things babies do. And adorable? Yes, you are baby girl, yes you are.
I bet you'd like some Easter pictures, right? Maybe tomorrow. We were without power all day yesterday and I have 3 girls to get fed and to the Dr this AM .... pretty much an Olympic event.
Wish me luck! Hopefully Rosie's hand will be declared "all better"!

Hey, would somebody tell my Mama this diapers too big?

And that I'm hungry? Thanks.

First bath

Daddy does baths around here but he got a lot of help with Juliana's first. All three girls eventually ended up in the tub. It was working pretty well until Rosie decided to wash her face....
The last picture is Rosie's "termo set plastic" splint. And yes, it's really that bright.

Quick update on Rosie

Rosie got her cast off yesterday. Her finger looks wonderful(in a gross healing stitches/nail bed kind of way)! She'll be in a splint for another three weeks but it's able to come off for baths and such so it's not nearly as restrictive. The Dr. was very pleased with the outcome and her attitude, he said she was braver than most of is grown up patients.
Just wanted to share the good news!
