All Grown Up

The past 3 weeks have flown by and I've realized babies are all growing up!  Am I blubbering about this?  No.  In fact, I couldn't be happier.

After waiting and waiting, Ella has FINALLY  lost her first tooth.  She's been anticipating this for over a year now and over the weekend, she was lucky enough to lose two (and by lose I mean Brian yanked them out).

With her 'shark teeth' growing in behind it was just time for those bottom teeth to go.  It's kind of funny not having a gap there since the others are pretty much fully grown in behind.

I asked her what she thought about the tooth fairy.  She said she believed.  I said "Really? Why?"  Her response was, "I just do."  I wasn't really wanting to do the tooth fairy thing.  But she said that she didn't want the tooth fairy to take her teeth and she wanted to keep them.  So the tooth fairy can pocket the money, Ella's not interested.  Works for me.

Meet Mr. Mom.  He's my no. #1 babysitter helper.  If Maddex needs tending to, he's right there.  Brian got the shun a few days ago.  Maddex was crying and Aiden whips in the room and dismissed Brian saying "I'll handle this."

Riley got a double whammy this week too.  Last week she got her ears pierced!  We decided that we would wait until the girls asked for it.  Ella was 4 when she wanted hers, but Riley's been asking for months.  I was going to wait until her 3rd birthday, but Christmas works too!  Riley also started booty camp (potty training) today.  I was waiting until Maddex was here to start, but now I've finally run out of reasons to put it off.  Maybe she'll make this easy for me.  So far so good!  

Maddex is weighing in at almost 11 pounds.  She's holding her head up and actually staying awake for about 4 hours a day!  I'd like to see her walking and talking by next week, but then Riley would have to find a new baby doll to play with.
