Small Victories

We triumph in the small victories:

* Jamie has graduated to the next level of swim classes. He is now proud to be a Ray (or sting ray, as he informed me).

* Taking all three children to a children's theatrical performance and no one cried! (With two children sitting on my lap for the majority of the show.)

* Simon is sleeping in his own crib, in his own room, almost through the night. And that goes for naps, too - no more napping in the car seat in the dining room.

* Finally figuring out the best way to go grocery shopping with all three children and still have room in the shopping cart for more than just a gallon of milk.

* Clare has started walking. Albeit slowly, sometimes while complaining loudly, and not all the time, Clare has started walking.

Life is good.

Congratulations Teresa,to you and Claire of course. That is awesome. Of couse now you will be doing double time trying to keep up with her :)Don't even get me started on the grocery store. Mine are 7,9, and 11 and they still drive me crazy at the store!!! My only advice is to leave them with Daddy.

TERESSA THATS AMAZING! I have been horrible about keeping up lately, but had a few extra minutes this morning so I thought I would stop on by. I love love love it! Daven is slowly starting to do the same. But at a much slower pace. I love it! Just beautiful!
