Easter was so much fun! The girls enjoyed their baskets from us and their grandparents. We didn't go overboard on Easter because the best is yet to come. We wanted to see how they would respond to simple baskets. Easter usually looks like Christmas in our house. I love everything about Easter. They definitely enjoyed everything they received, and were thankful. They didn't ask for more, they were thankful for what they got. All the little toys and bubbles, sidewalk chalk, you know the drill. =) I noticed with less at a time, they were able to focus for longer periods on one toy, rather than being overwhelmed.
We have a lot planned in the next couple weeks. A trip to the aquarium for a late birthday present to Sophia, and a party at Chucky Cheese for Mya. Emma's going to be having a princess birthday party and we are looking for a "real" princess for the party. Invites will be going out soon however because I am paying for all admission it will be a relatively small party. (also we would need a bus) Just a few of their friends to enjoy the magic of celebrating their birthdays. I think I'm more excited then they are. When they see where we are going they will be so happy and surprised!
I asked Mya "Do you remember Chucky Cheese?" She jumped up sitting on the couch next to me, and gave me a HUGE HUG and said "Thank you mommy, I love you!" I just can't believe how smart these girls are. It amazes me everyday. The fact that they are even smarter then they portray themselves to be. Shyness comes into affect. However I catch them counting to themselves all the time. Mya can count to 3 and Emma can count to 5. They can tell you any animal's name and where they live.
I can't wait for them to see one of their favorite kinds of animals, in their habitats. Emma especially loves the water, and water animals. She loves turtles and her favorite color is green. Don't worry she wont let you forget it! The memory on this child is amazing. I am so thankful for the blessing I have received and hope to pay it forward. I am just filled with so much love and excitement I couldn't sleep! I had to write a post on how thankful I am. To know that my husband and I are raising, respectable, intelligent, strong, independent, caring, sweet baby girls, fills my heart with so much love and peace. Be thankful for what you do have. I always wanted more. I've always felt I wasn't doing enough. As most mothers do naturally. At the end of the day when my feet hurt because I was running back and forth all day, or my body hurts from sitting transforming into a human jungle gym, I wouldn't have it any other way! Me and my husband work hard for what we have, and everything is for our babies. Our children are happy, loved, and well cared for. They know it too. =) I am thankful to have children to climb me, love me as I love them, and be apart of their hearts.
I am posting a gallery of Easter pictures, most of you may have seen them already, but their too cute!
Have a blessed day,
We Love The Babies
This page is to bring you along my journey to find positivity and harmony. Its started as a 30 day challenge to learn more about ones self and how to truly take care of yourself. To take care of others, you have to be able to take care of yourself. Instead of a 30 day challenge I'm turning this into a year of positivity and the journey we venture to find what truly matters in this world. It is important as a mother to show children positivity can be found everywhere and anywhere. It starts with right now, and right here!
