It makes my heart smile to hear Ted putting the girls to bed. They ask for a bedtime song, and the next thing I hear is them all singing the duet, "Lida Rose" from the Music Man. Ted sings "Lida Rose" while the girls sing "Dream of Now". Without skipping a beat, the girls launch into "Lida Rose" while Ted sings "Dream of Now." Priceless.
H pulled another new game out of our game cabinet--Mindtrap. Here is a variation we made up on one of the questions we got last night.
"Jessica and Ted have five children. Half of them are girls. How is this possible?"
Because the other half are ALSO girls!

Things have been so busy over here that I haven't kept up with downloading pictures. So now that I've downloaded, you get overloaded! :-)
J got her first two teeth within a few days of each other. I tried to capture her toothy grin! She loves her walker and can really get places. She has also already started helping me in the kitchen--here she is licking a spatula! (I was making apricot baby food--yum!!)
G wanted me to braid her hair one day so she could have some curls. She loved the braids so much she left them in for a full day. But she was excited to take them out and see her curls. Here are the results!
On a break from schoolwork, the girls get silly! I believe they were all being rock stars this day.
Here is F with her sweet smile! What a cutie!
On one Sunday after church I got a quick picture of 4 of the 5 sisters (H is missing). It's really hard to get all 5 of them in a picture together, let alone all looking at the camera!
This morning they called me, "Mama, you have GOT to get a picture of this!" So here's another picture of 4 out of the 5, this time with baby J missing (she was napping--we'll have to try this pose again sometime!)
