The Five of Us, Spring 2014

The Five of Us, Spring 2014

We're Back!!!

We had a good Easter and trip to Oregon, but not much blog-worthy. I did get an update on Pea while we were there. She's doing sooo well! She's up to 18.25 pounds. Here's what else "they" had to say about her:



She has such a fun personality! She's playful, sassy, chatty, and usually happy. She has this cackle-type laugh that she uses frequently. It is very cute, especially from such a little girl. Pea has started saying words (she can say "Mama") and is frequently pulling herself up to stand next to the cribs. These days she has started going to preschool with the 2's and 3's. She just sits in her little chair and has a blast the whole time.



I'm hoping that she's saying Mama when she's looking at pictures of me! :)



Dad and Matt will be here tomorrow. They went to Mt. Rushmore today. Looking forward to seeing them.



I'll post cute Easter pics of the cousins soon, but for now, here's the new ones of Pea.

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at xawilsons@hotmail.com. Much obliged, I'm sure.
