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.

Cutting a Christmas Tree
We cut down a Christmas tree today. This is something we've never done with the kids. It seemed much more manageable this year with two preschoolers and an infant than it has in the past. The fact that Arya and Eiley are so much more independent this year makes it doable now. I wore Zia in the Ergo. We carried the twins some around the lot, but they had to walk back to the car while Cork and I carried the tree. They had so much fun decorating when we got home, but we didn't finish. We'll have to do more tomorrow. We had a party to go to tonight, so we stopped putting "decolations" on the tree to get ready.
Arya was hilarious at the Christmas tree lot. She kept pointing to trees she wanted. Each one she picked out was like a Charlie Brown tree. Most were just super young and had a rough summer with our heat and dry weather, but one had no green on it at all. I started taking her picture with the trees she picked out because she was cracking me up.
Today, I also put away some of Zia's clothes that don't fit and got out 6 month and some 6-9 month sizes. It's crazy to think that she is already almost 6 months. The first outfit I put her in is one that she should be able to wear a long time. I love the pants because the hem folds down to lengthen them. Zia loved looking at the dots on her pants and tried to grab them over and over while she was sitting on the floor.
