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.

The road in front of our house is being replaced right now. It's a PITA! They've barely started, but I can't wait for it to be done. I'm glad I have kids who can sleep through noise. This is what was going on while they napped today.
When they got up from their nap, the kids were super charged and ready to go. I called their pediatricians office to schedule their 2 year wellness check up. They were both in a good mood when I dialed, but of course started yelling shortly after. I didn't know if I should be embarrassed or laugh as Arya cried and Eiley screamed "mama bite" in the background. I'm sure the lady on the phone could hear Eiley. I honestly was trying not to laugh. We're probably going to go to the checkup and someone will be there to check me out to see if I'm a fit parent. They might have in their notes that I bite my children.
After the phone incident, I was trying to cook dinner. Eiley stole mustard out of the refrigerator at some point. I have no idea when. She's very sneaky when she wants to be. I heard the girls scuffling and heard Arya saying no. I walked into the family room and had to tell Eiley "do not put mustard on your sister".
After the mustard was confiscated, the girls disappeared upstairs. I know that they always get up to no good when they are up there and that the baby gate into my bedroom was not shut. I quickly followed them to find that they had gotten their hands on some lipstick. When I took it from them they both started saying "dada buh", meaning daddy's chapstick. Hmm! I jokingly asked Cork when he got home what he is doing when I'm not around since the kids seem to think my lipstick is his chapstick.
