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.

Happy Birthday to Me
Arya and Eiley made me a birthday cake today. I helped frost it, but they did the decorating I'm very impressed with their writing skills. I had to tell them which letters to put, but they wrote it themselves I don't write well with a gel icing. They did fantastic though.
I had a very challenging day with all three kids today. Our plan was to go out for dinner as a family. By the time Cork got home, I wasn't sure that was a good idea. I wasn't sure any of them could behave long enough to get through a meal at a restaurant. The older two promised that they would behave, so we braved it and went out. The girls did pretty good. They sat politely most of the time we were there and ate well. Zia was a typical 18 month old. She was ready to be done before we were. With a little distraction here and there, she lasted until we were done.
Zia celebrated her 18 m birthday by being as obnoxious to her sisters as possible. She followed them around, took their stuff, and screamed in a high pitch scream all day. It was amusing at first, but the amusement didn't last. She is pretty funny most of the time though. She loves to do things and then yell "ah ha" to draw attention to herself. She likes to loudly run through all the name she knows, especially Arya and Dada"Papa, Dada, Arya, Mama, Dada, Arya, Dada, Arya, Nana, Dada, Arya". She calls both Arya and Eiley "Arya" and has even started using that for herself when you ask her to say Zia.
I had a late night working on the doll house and wrapping presents last night. I was super lame and took one scrap of paper and wrapped up April. The girls loved it.
The twins finished reading 1,000 books last week. I keep forgetting to take their picture with the chart. I asked what they wanted as a prize and again they wanted ice cream. I won't argue with that. With all the holiday junk food right now, it may be awhile before we take them.
