Goodbye 2014

2014 was a big year!

Connor and Chloe moved out of their cribs into big kid beds.
Chloe and I had our first of many Mommy/Daughter pedicure dates.
We played...a lot. And became best buddies.
We played soccer for the first time.
We welcomed our miracle baby and I became a mom of three.
We worked on figuring out our new life as a family of 5.
We took a few trips to the zoo.
We played some more and included Cooper.
Connor and Chloe went from being binky babies and wearing diapers to big kids using the potty full time.
We loved every minute of the whole holiday season and enjoyed our trip to Alabama.
2015 will be another year of firsts for us.
Connor and Chloe will start preschool in January and Cooper will have his first crawl, his first word, his first step, and his first birthday.
I know it won't be perfect, but it's happening so I'm going to enjoy it!
Happy New Year!

Children's Museum

Yesterday, I loaded all 3 kids up and we went to the Children's Museum. There is this giant climbing thing made of what looks like tape and plastic wrap.
I don't know if Chloe was scared or just couldn't walk on it without slipping, but I caught this amazing moment between the twins and I'll never forget how it made my heart feel.
 She was stuck in one spot and Connor went back to help her, all on his own. I wasn't right there telling him what to do and even if I was, it was so loud, he never would have heard me. But before they went in there I told them to stick together. I watched him walk back to where she was, hold out his hand and lift her up and then hold her hand all the way to the other side.
There was a string maze, hanging ropes and other activities in this room and in the other room were dinosaurs and another slide.
It was very crowded, and I'm not convinced it was worth the $20 I paid for us to get in, but they had fun and I guess that's all that matters.
