Big Kid and a Babysitter

Mairead is looking so grown up in just about every picture I take lately. It's all happening too fast! In this picture, though, there is one big change-- she is not wearing a diaper in this picture! We are taking it slow, but we are making some great progress. We are really proud of Mairead for being such a big girl

Today, our friend Stephanie was here to babysit again. The kids LOVE her. So much, in fact, that the boys were 'fighting' over her. Ben was sitting in Stephanie's lap and Jack tried to pull him out saying, "No!" Stephanie suggested that they might think she is a toy-- she IS pretty fun to play with! Mairead warmed right up to her, too, which is great!

The boys must have had a LOT of fun with Stephanie because they were completely exhausted when she left. They were sitting together (so cute) in the recliner and Ben fell asleep on Jack's shoulder. How sweet to take a little nap on your 'big' brother's shoulder! Thanks, Stephanie, for being so great with the kids!

Way to go Mairead!! We're rooting for you! I love the picture of the boys! So, cute. I'm really glad to hear the sitter is working out. What a relief!

Ok, how cute are the boys sleeping on each other? Adorable! And congrats to Mairead for wearing big girl undies! Connor is getting there - I just need a week home with him to finish the job. Maybe during Feb break!
