Lizzy is growing up and is almost 2! Even though she is good-natured and independent, she is quite the destroyer! We have spent a considerable part of March removing her "drawings" from our wood floors, furniture, walls, etc. She is also infatuated with toilets. If a toilet seat is left up-- watch out! Her babies go for a swim, water gets emptied on the floor, toilet paper rolls are thrown in. She's definitely keeping us on our toes!
Ashley has had some serious back problems this month and isn't allowed to lift anything heavier than 5 lbs.. (She herniated 2 disks and one ruptured). Daniel has been a big helper carrying Rachel and taking her in and out of her crib. Also, our moms, friends & neighbors have been such a blessing, coming to help Ashley care for the kids during this time...
Lizzy loves her babies. Here she is giving one kisses. She really mimics Ashley caring for Rachel. She changes her babies diapers, feeds them bottles, wraps them in blankets. It's so cute to watch.
Rachel has really gotten so much easier (with the exception of nights where she is teething and won't sleep!!!). She has become very interested in toys and is generally happy when people are around. She will sit and play with toys all by herself, however, she definitely likes to be where the 'action' is.
Daniel raised some catepillars and watched them turn into butterflies. They were so tame, they let Daniel hold them and carry them around the house. Too bad they only lived 2 weeks!
