Happy SIXTH Birthday to My [ALWAYS] Baby Girls!!!

Monday, my girls turned six years old.  SIX!!!

I’m coming to terms with them being BIG KIDS.  They…

·         Love to draw
·         Love to craft
·         Enjoy math challenges
·         Write the sweetest notes
·         Read pretty proficiently
·         Make their beds (sometimes)
·         Rinse their own hair in the shower (no easy task)
·         Eat (most of the time) without getting food on their clothes
·         Sit on their bottoms and are tall enough to reach the table
·         (Usually) like to help unload the dishwasher, and they know where almost everything goes
·         (Usually) like to help with laundry…they can set the washer and dryer themselves!
·         Buckle and unbuckle themselves in the car
·         Complete all zippers and buttons without help
·         Can tie a bow
·         Know the way to most places we go in town
·         Are excellent travelers
·         Can recite all our address and all our phone numbers, including the phone numbers of some family members
·         Can put their own hair in a ponytail (Baby B can, anyway)
·         Know far more about an iPad than I do
·         Ride bikes (with training wheels)
·         Hula-hoop
·         LOVE our kitties

I could go on and on.  They are smart, and sweet, and kind, and thoughtful.  As they are growing into such amazing young ladies, I am so thankful they still…

·         Love to snuggle with their Mommy and Daddy
·         Love to sit in my lap
·         Squeal with delight at tickles
·         Can’t resist a good strawberry kiss on their bellies
·         Love to be read to
·         Let me carry them to bed at night
·         Delight in talking to Mommy on the phone
·         Are so affectionate with their hugs and kisses
·         Talk about when they grow up, and their “house” plans always include each other and Mommy and Daddy
·         Play with their baby dolls
·         Create amazing pretend scenarios, often involving “vet” or “store” or “train”

They are the most precious BABY girls…always will be…at SIX or SIXTY.

BLESS!!!! My heart stands still - how time is flying.

Mandy, when you carry them to bed, I can only imagine those legs are well past your knees :)

Happy birthday, precious A and B.

How are our babies 6 already!?!? Love your list of their interests and abilities! You're always so great at celebrating both the big and the little things!

Adam's pretty excited about turning 6 - he wants to sleep on the top bunk now!

Hooray! I was hoping you'd post. Welcome to SIX, precious babies! We've LOVED this age so far!

Oh, how I wish we lived closer... I'm pretty sure we would all be best friends. ;)

Hi! My name is Dorothy Edwards. I saw that you are the founder of the moms with multiples club? I'm a big sister of triplets and a senior photojournalism student WKU. I couldn't find an email to reach you, I figured this would work! I'd love to talk to you about possibly helping me with my senior capstone project about mothers with multiples. Feel free to email me: and I can tell you more about it! Thanks and hope to hear from you!
