Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.
Arya and Eiley wrote with pencils last year but haven't been this year at school. So, we're writing and drawing with pencils at home. Eiley was sitting on my lap today when she started to write the alphabet unprompted. Arya saw her and wrote her own alphabet. I'm pretty impressed with how they did with no help from me or each other.
I read to the twins at least 30 minutes every day. We try to do this while Zia is asleep, but she's been napping at odd hours lately, so some days that's not possible. She will not sit calmly while we read if we're on the couch. She climbs, runs, falls, and is just disruptive. So, we've started reading while having blanket parties. We just read while laying on a blanket. She crawls all over us, but it's not nearly as disruptive. Tonight, she decided she needed to nurse while we were reading, so she shoved herself under me.
I had to go to a doctor appointment today. Zia was all bubbly and happy until we walked into the exam room. She must remember going in for her flu shot because she freaked out. After awhile, I got her calmed down but she was not her warm happy self with anyone who came into the room. She was giving everyone her death stare. It was pretty funny to watch.
We had a bunch of bad weather today. We went to church this morning, and as usual, Zia didn't make it very far into the service. I brought her down to the nursery, in hopes of leaving her there. She quickly let everyone know that she was not going to let me out of her house. I was going to try to sneak out after a few minutes, then the tornado sirens went off. Everyone moved the service down to the basement, so there was no sneaking out. She just love to socialize during church. She'd be perfectly happy if I let her run up and down the aisles the entire service.
Who doesn't love a good hula hoop party? Even if you don't have a hula hoop to party with.
We took the kids kids to the Milwaukee Public Museum today. They kept asking "Where are the toys?" "When can we play?" and other things like that. They were less than impressed with the museum. They much prefer Betty Brinn. That is until we reached the butterfly exhibit. After that, all other memories of the museum were erased and if you ask them, they had a wonderful time.
