Sara is also incredibly affectionate. She dishes out the kisses and hugs like crazy and we all love it. Even her baby seems to enjoy the messy Sara kisses.
Crawling seems to be the biggest frustration right now. Sara's working and working to get it down, and moves around a little bit. She's got the crawling to sitting move down pat, but true mobility is elusive. So, most of the time her efforts end like this.

The celebrating began on Monday when Jason and I got a REAL DATE. Thank you so much to my parents for watching the girls for us! We went out to our favorite restaurant for dinner (Caffe Molise, of course) where we ate amazing food. Then it was off to the Jazz vs. Houston game where we cheered our guts out. But my favorite part of the evening was just walking around the city holding my hubby's hand without having to worry about anything! For some reason I didn't take any pictures of the evening, but here is a picture of Laura impersonating Kyle Korver.
I got totally spoiled this year! My folks gave me the best surprise this year in a new set of red dishes for my kitchen. I have a real weakness for dishes. Are they not so fabulous?!

We had a chance to meet the last two baby boys recently. (We had already met Ephraim) We really enjoyed getting to meet both Garrett and James. Sara looked huge next to them and we enjoyed snuggling tiny ones again.
Jason and I are so burned out on home improvements that we opted to pay a little more and have our yard put in for us. Consequently, it's really coming along. And, it brings fun things like a cool tractor for Laura, Lily and Micah to watch!
Yes, despite my lack of posting about it, I am still doing preschool for the girls. We a working our way through the lessons in this book. And it is making a huge difference on Laura's reading skills. She is really doing great on that front. We also do some fun crafts. Here is Laura painting at preschool.
Sara loves being able to scoot around on all the tile. She really loves being able to get into cupboards. Look at what she found today!

We made cupcakes together and Laura decorated them all with sprinkles. We decorated the table with flowers Laura punched out and name tags she labeled. Laura decided the house needed to be clean for the party and picked up all her toys. She then invited over Grandma and Grandpa for the Love Party.

I found the girls this way after I ran to get the camera to take a pic of Sara running to Laura
I came in first thing in the morning to find them snuggling and laughing like this
I found Laura washing off Sara's little face after Sara had puked...now that's some true love shown by my easily gagging Laura
