Their Irresistible Side ...

Be warned, excessive bragging to follow! I only include the bragging, because, well, who wants to hear about potty training failures, toddler tantrums, and preschool chaos?? It's like any meal, we really only care about dessert....wink!

Our E-man is such a little bookworm and as a result, has a fantastic time acting out all the stories he is downloading to his little mind. In case you couldn't figure it out, he is Prince Philip in the picture above, off to rescue his Sleeping Beauty, not a pirate with a superman complex, as the outfit seems to show. We will start doing some learning readiness activities soon and I think he can hardly wait...he is always asking me "Mommy, I am ready for homeschool!"

At 8 weeks of life, our Natty V is getting very plump, as you can see, and looking prettier in pink every day! She also has started smiling and cooing at us. To add a cherry on top of all this sweetness, she has been sleeping through the night (10PM-6AM) for one whole week! This sweet little face is busy stealing hearts in the Arbuckle home. Watch out, you might be next!

Our girls are really warming up to each other, as evidenced by their happy faces. That's about all that can be said about that pair. Wink.

A match made in Heaven. I think it's because they look so much a like. Ethan enjoys talking to Natalie, holding her, kissing her, and taking care of her. Just today he giggled, "Mommy, I just kissed her on her nose." That's a sure sign of his complete infatuation.

Meir is keeping up with her older brother--going on big adventures and imagining strange, new worlds! She is also quite content to be girly--picking which dress to wear each day and making sure that her nails--fingers and toes--are painted. Once dressed, which she wants to do right after waking up in the morning, she runs to find her Daddy to show him "how pretty I am." She has somehow already learned how to flirt and is constantly making eyes at her Daddy. I've said it before...are we in trouble or what?!?
