Let's Go Bowling ...

Can you see the fear?

The girls and I (Brian) went bowling on Saturday ... haven't been in years. My valentine dates and I went to Main Event while Rachel picked up her mother (in town for Lauren's baby blessing). We had a great time, but it's probably safe to say Kate & Taylor should stick to ballerinas and barbies. Form was good--especially Taylor's, but it seemed difficult for her to stay in our lane ... she'd walk up, get ready to throw, and then step side-ways to our neighbor's lane, then throw. Definitely some confusion going on. Then Kate--she'd get a foul for stepping over the line, lose a turn, then complain about Taylor getting "two throws." Again, lots of confusion. We also did a "movie roller-coaster ride" which freaked both of them out ... I guess it felt pretty real.

Love these girls!

Our Little One-Month-Old ...

Lauren is one month old- boy, time has flown by in the last four weeks. Lauren has brought such a sweet spirit into our home and has really let us know how fresh from heaven these little ones come. Mommy is so much more relaxed with baby #3 and so is much more able to enjoy every single day with our little Lauren Mae. Despite being more tired than I ever remember being, we are loving our increasingly legitimate family! :)

Kate and Taylor are still loving their little sister- smothering her with kisses and plenty of baby talk. They help out as much as they can- bringing me diapers and wipes, letting me know immediately when Lauren has spit up or might be uncomfortable, and supplying lots of motherly advice. Thanks girls- we love you!

Tay Po

We will post some more pictures of Lauren Mae as soon as we can! For now, enjoy some of our little Tay Po...

We spent the morning walking around Highland Park and then took the girls to lunch. Daddy was buying the sandwiches while Kate and Taylor kept asking what they were going to eat. I told them they were having a grilled cheese to which they replied, "and a boy cheese?".
