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.

Instructional Listening

Even though Arya and Eiley don't say many verbal words, they definitely understand what we are saying. Today, Eiley took a much longer nap than usual. When she got up, Arya had already nursed and had a very large snack. I sat on the couch to nurse Eiley and she threw her pacifier. Arya picked it up and put it in her mouth even though she usually only gets a pacer if she is going to sleep.
Me: Arya, take the pacer out of your mouth please.
Arya: Dramatically pulls the pacer out.
Me: Laughing. You have cracker in your mouth. Can I have that?
Arya: Pulls the cracker out of her mouth with her open hand and hands it to me.

LOL! I wanted the pacer, not the cracker, but I had mentioned the cracker and she was following my directions.

  1. Isn't it amazing to see - and hear! - things through the eyes and ears of your children now? When we can stop to appreciate it, I think it can bring an entirely new level of awareness.

    Your girls are precious! And I love the picture on your header. Our girls had those same patterned onesies (in a larger size), and just the sight of that takes me right back. :)
