Swimming and more swimming.

Okay, all my pictures are backwards from the way I wanted them posted. So these first 4 are of Clayton, start with the 4th one and go back. I couldn't find her, but I heard her crying and finally I looked behind the couch. She was crawling and crying, so of course I took pictures, her little faces make me laugh.
I made it! Wait there's my mama.

I have got to get out of here!

So sad.

Watching a Veggietales after a swim!

Clayton loves the backyard.

The kids in the frog pool

Cooper can swim all by himself with his Spidey floaties.

Clayton likes the little pool.

Kenndall likes standing on the deck of the big pool, she will only get in if I hold her.

Everyday we swim. Either the big pool or the "bick fwag" in Kenndall's words (big frog) pool which is actually the little pool. Everyday we swim. I love it. It is so much fun to go outside and watch the kiddos have a blast playing in the water and then getting so tired, they are ready for bed at 7:30. :) We have been busy lately. It seems there is something that we do almost everyday. Today we went to Legacy Play Village with some friends. It was fun, but really really hot. Ugh, I was sweating as I got out of the car before we even started playing. Cooper and Kenndall had a fun time. So they are napping as I type this, and I am debating letting them play in the pool today. Because, Brian and I are going to see TRANSFORMERS tonight!! I am so excited. I loved the first one and this one looks like it will be even better!! Wendy is going to watch the kiddos for us. I love summer blockbuster movies. I also am excited about seeing the new Harry Potter which comes out soon. Ok, enough about the movies.
Sometimes I need to blog to record things that I know I will forget later. Okay. First, Clayton is everywhere in everything and on everything. She has been pulling up really well and has started to try to climb on things, she falls at least 10 times a day, because she doesn't realize she is not big like her brother and sister. Poor baby. She is so precious. She has learned that she loves Puffs, Cheerios, crackers, baby mum-mums, toast, and pretty much any table food I let her try. She is not too hot on baby food, I don't know why, she just doesn't like it. Even fruits she is not crazy about and hold her mouth closed on purpose so I can't get the spoon in. But she loves the other food, so I try to give her as much table food as I can. The sooner she is eating real food, the better for me. She is making all kinds of fun noises, sometimes I think she tries to say words. One day I swear she said "hi", she consistently says dada, but still no Mama, ugh! She still is the smiliest baby ever, I love it. She does hate going to sleep. She fusses and fusses, but I think it is just a stage and soon she will have learned to soothe herself. If I go in her room to check on her when she is crying because I layed her down, she is standing up in her crib and gives me the biggest grin, so it is all just an act.

Cooper is such a big boy these days. I love his talking, he always makes me laugh. Some of the phrases that he is saying now (and of course Kenndall copies him). "I can't remember." "I just don't think so." "The land of paws" (The land of oz, from the movie). "It's bleaking" (it's leaking). "We have to blue it." (glue it). He sometimes says "W" instead of whatever letter starts a word. Like "wry" for dry, or "wruck" for truck. It is funny. He still says Clayton as ,"Natenun" and Kenndall says, "Clayton" very clearly. Funny. Cooper has been a little toot lately, he has been testing me daily in his obedience and his fit throwing. So he has had a lot of corner time and a few swats.

Kenndall has been potty training. She has done great. (With the exception of She can go a couple of hours without going number 1, which is a huge thing, compared to her brother who has the bladder the size of a pea. She loves wearing her panties (Cooper calls them pennies), and she looks too cute in them. They are big on her, but they are the smallest I could find. Sometimes she talks so grown up it just makes me laugh. One day after I got out of the shower I was going to paint my toenails, and as I got the nail polish out, she asks, "You paint your toenails?" I laughed and laughed because she sounded like a grown up. She also loves to sing. She likes to sing Jesus Loves Me and the Veggietales song, various songs from Veggietales, and pretty much any church song. She still loves her books and could read all day if I would do it with her. I have tried to get her to "read" by herself a little more and she is doing great with that. Her favorite book is called, "Hello Bee, Hello Me!"
Anyway, I have chores to do and kids to tend. So that is all for now.
