Birthdays and ages

My kids enjoy discussing birthdays and how old they are. I often hear questions like, "If I am six (or seven, eight...) how old will Josiah and Beth be?" It is a good way to practice adding or subtracting by twos. The other day Robert asked Josiah, “How old are you going to be on your next birthday?” Josiah held up 4 fingers, and Robert replied, “That’s right. How old do you want to be?” Josiah quickly answered, “69”.

Baby update

Wednesday I had an appointment with my midwife. I am at 20 weeks and things are going well. I did measure quite a bit bigger than what I should be. This has raised the question again of "Is it twins?" I have an ultra sound scheduled in a few weeks that will settle that question. I would welcome another set of twins, but it would make it difficult to have a home birth. One thing I really want to avoid is a c-section.
I am a bit short on sleep. Getting up in the middle of the night with kids will do that. So it is off to bed for me. Good night all.

Sweet pictures

Church was a little long, and they had no nap. They were too cute sleeping side by side.
My princesses!!
Beth's hair is finally long enough to put piggy tails in it. Her hair is very light and fine compared to the others. Even though it is cold here she still runs around bare foot. I can't keep socks on her!
