If you have been reading my blog for awhile you have seen my 12 Months of Eva posts. Well, she is now 18 months and wanted to get in a new post to show her growth. The twins are also 3 1/2 now and thought I would take a few picture of them and all of them together!
I will start out with Eva and some pictures of her.
Here she is at 18 months! I can't believe how much she has grown in the last 6 months. She has so many words in her vocabulary and is always letting me know what she wants or if something is wrong. I am so surprised how fast they learn when there are other kids around. She is so more advanced then the twins were at her age.
Eva loves playing with her babies and is very loving. She loves copying everything that her brother and sister do. She is even at the point where she is ready to go potty on the potty! I hope to start training her soon!
Ever since she was a baby, I would have my nightly routine with her in putting her to bed. It is one of my favorite times with her as I sing to her as well as pray for her. We pray for our family as well and she is able to name everyone! Such a precious time with her!
Here are a couple pictures of the twins.
Selah is my shy one. While she is full of energy and loves to play she is also very quite. She loves to be held and has a beautiful spirit. She is very sensitive and can cry very easily if her feelings are hurt. She loves having her daddy blow dry her hair after a bath and always has to come and show me how pretty it is.
Gabriel is my analytical one. Always studying things and thinking things through. He is also my cheerful one. Always smiling in everything thing that he is doing. he is very silly and goofy too. He does not cuddle as much as he use to but still likes to give hugs and kisses. At random times in the day he will tell me that he want to give me a hug and kiss! It always makes me melt.
This is me having fun using Picnik before it goes away.
I can now say that I am at the tail end of potty training! It has been such a relief to get through this. Gabriel has been going for awhile, but in the last two weeks I have been diligently working with Selah. We spent a good couple hours at one time and she cried and cried, but after that it was a break through and it took less time as the days went on. We are still not fully trained and there are accidents here and there, but for the most part they are in underwear now! Our wallets are pretty happy right now!!!
Here are some shots with them all together.
This was the best shot that I could get of the three of them together! Things continue to get better and better with the kids. George and I had a weekend to ourselves this last weekend and we both agreed that there is no way we would go back to the way it was before kids. They are a lot of work, but well worth it.
We are truly blessed!
