I know I haven't blogged in a while, but really there's been nothing to say. Tonight I was thinking about blogging and what I might say and walked into the family room and found the kids like this. This picture pretty much sums up our kids right now.
Madelyn is obsessed with books, Backyardigans and being naked. She is constantly trying to get me to read to her and while I love doing it, after about 10 books I need a break. She loves to watch tv and knows all the Backyardigans names. She also loves to take off her clothes. I can't tell you how many times I turn around and she's naked. I even pick her up from her naps and most the time her shirt is off. If it wasn't January this probably wouldn't be much of a problem.
Caden loves Madelyn more than anything in the world and is always willing to give in when she asks him to read to her. It's really sweet to see how much he adores Maddie. They have a very special bond and I swear she has him wrapped around her little finger. He will do anything for her.
Jillian is always in her own little world doing the funniest things for no apparent reason. This picture was taken at about 7:00 pm and it was pitch dark outside. She found Caden's old sunglasses and wore them all night. She kept having to lift them up so see things better, but then would put them back down over her eyes. She is the funniest person in the world.
**Funny story: This afternoon I was running on the eliptical while Maddie was asleep and Jillian was watching tv. I came out and Jillian said, "Mom, when will you paint my toe nails with the pink sparkly heart nail polish?" I said, "I can do it now if you'd like. Let me go get it." She smiles evily and stands up. "Look Mom it's right here. It fell in my pocket." I say, "How did it fall in your pocket?" The nail polish sits on the top shelf of the bookshelf in the office. I put it there to keep her away from it. She says, "I was in the office getting a book and it fell off the shelf and landed in my pocket." She's still smiling with her evil grin and I just started cracking up.
