We had a Garden/ pretend it's warm outside surprise 60th birthday party for Omi. Luckily Uncle Ryan was around to entertain the girls while we waited for her to arrive.
And the girls entertained everyone with their "singing".
Then Omi arrived. This is the only picture I got of her walking in because my camera was switched to manual focus and I didn't realize.... if anyone has pictures of Omi and Poppy getting to the party, please email them to me.
Omi and her girlies.
Time for presents! Happy Birthday!

Disclaimer: We don't actually care what you think about our baby's name. We are not announcing the name we choose before the baby is born. Have fun :o)

These photos seem to indicate that getting their teeth cleaned went well. That's because I couldn't take pictures of the real good parts. I had to hold josie on my lap for her cleaning ( though at least her mouth was open while she was crying so her teeth were easier to clean). Ella on the other hand let them count her teeth but clamped her jaw shut for the actual cleaning part.
So not a fun morning for anyone but they have healthy teeth anyway despite a few anomalies. We'll be back in 6 months with another baby watching. I might need to bring reinforcements next time!

Omi turns 60 years young this week! We saw her last weekend for girls spa relaxation day. (In fact, she will probably kill me for posting any pictures because after our facials and massages etc, she wasn't wearing any make-up and neither was I, but I'm not in any of the pictures so thats not really a good defensive strategy. ) So since we won't be seeing her on her birthday, Ella helped me make her dinner and blueberry cheesecake for dessert. Ella also picked out her birthday gifts. A sparkly necklace and a fancy hat. Omi should be all set for the beach, a garden affair, or the Kentucky derby with this hat. That is if it ever stops snowing.
She'll give a birthday kiss, and take the hat!

Josie has hits a couple milestones the past couple weeks. First off, she got her haircut. Rather I just trimmed the back. It's a serious pet peeve I have with little girls who never get their hair trimmed just for the sake of it being long. I mean the top has to even out with the bottom somehow or else they just look like they have a scraggly mullet. I've got nothing against a good mullet, really, but there are cuter hair styles for little girls. I was dreading cutting the little curls off though, because ,what if it stops being curly and really it is just so cute. So anyways, I trimmed it (about an inch) in the bath one night and of course Ella wants to cut it and I tell her "No". And then we have to add specifically "under no circumstances are you to ever cut your sisters or your own hair....." I feel like with 3 girls this will be an issue at some point. But Ella is a rule follower, so I'm not too worried about her. So anyway, I think I did a good job, I mean, the haircut could be horrific and she's still be cute, but I think it's straight. Straight enough anyway that the curls can hide the rest.
Milestone #2, I've not been acknowledging for fear of jinxing it, but maybe you've noticed Josie has been sporting her patches in a lot of photos lately. Now she is an absolute beast when she has to wear the arm immobilizers, especially the new ones we got that houdini can't contort herself out of, so needless to say, it doesn't make for many photo ops. But all of a sudden the past 2 weeks she has been leaving the patch on without them for good stretched of time. We still use a few patches a day and have to make threats with the arm immobilizers, but all in all this is a HUGE improvement.
