They grow so fast...

I don't know how it happened but Miss Ellie is already 4 weeks old!!! We are doing really well, especially compared to this point in my post- Zoey recovery ;) She is eating and sleeping really well which of course make my life easier. And the big girls are slowly realizing that the Momma is no longer completely immobile. They are quick to take advantage of any distraction though and the most trouble happens when she is nursing :) But we are working on it...

I'm mostly back to normal so we started projects and baking again. I will post pics of their fall wreaths etc soon. I let them help make cookies the other day and snickerdoodles can be translated all sorts of ways by tiny mouths. Charlotte calls them snapperdoodles or snappernoodles and Zoey calls them new news which sounds like noodle or at least what she calls noodles. Its very funny to listen to them have conversations about them. Charlotte has discovered she is tall enough to reach most of the light switches in the house (because they can't all be a standard height because that would make sense :P ) and Zoey has figured out that she can move the stool in their room to get to the light switch in there so the lights seem to constantly be the opposite of what they are supposed to be. Charlotte loves her role of biggest sister and can be a big help (most of the time) and she loves to correct people... "you said the wrong word" is a constant especially with tired parents :)

The sewing machine is back out and being put to use :) :) :) I made a doll quilt for Zoey's doll because apparently crochet doll blankets aren't good enough if your big sister has a quilt too. And I'm happy to say that it is finished and already in use. The sewing list is growing but most things on it I already have the fabric for so there is a better chance it will get done ;) I hope...

I will get a picture of the quilt tomorrow and get that up and some updated pictures of the kids up too. Sorry the pics have been lacking, its not that we haven't taken any either....

Yay, Ducky's back in blog land! Charlotte makes me laugh...she is a very cute goddaughter :) We seem to be doing a bit better today, so I'm hoping we'll be able to do pancake night next week. :)
