Chase is Walking

Yesterday Chase just started walking around. He has been walking while pushing things for about 3 months, but yesterday was the first time on his own. He isn't very good, but we are so proud of him. Today in nursery he would stand up on his own and then start walking. It will be fun for him when he can keep up with his sister.
Here is one of him in action.

Morgan's Birthday

This month we celebrated Morgan's third birthday. I can't believe that she is already 3. It seems like not long ago I held her in my arms for the first time. She is such a joy to have in our lives. She always is telling me, "I love you mommy, thank you for being my special girl." She loves to have everything organized. Dogs have to go with dogs, ducks with ducks, bears with bears, ect... She gets it from me I guess. I always feel like I am organizing there toys. Today we were in nursery and there was only one horse and she said we needed to take it home because it was lonely. There were no other horses in nursery. She loves to dance. She was in a ballet class and she loved it. When ever music is on she is dancing around. She will ask mommy to dance with her. She will say, "well who is the teacher?" One day she was the teacher and she told me to do an arabesque. She said, "now straight knee mom, pointe your toes, lift your leg higher..." She is hard core. She loves princess, like most girls her age and loves Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and many more, but she will say that the Beast and Maleficent are grumpy because they don't have friends, she says I will be their friends. Morgan also loves her baby brother. When ever he wakes up from naps she is the first one in there and she says, "Did you sleep good Booboo" (that is what she calls him sometimes). We are still working on sharing and not stealing his toys, but there is no doubt that Morgan loves her brother. She is definately still a daddy's girl. As soon as Pete gets home she only wants him. Probably because she calls mom the boss.
Morgan is one day old here.
Here is her 1st birthday

Morgan on her 3rd birthday. I made her a tutu. The whole time I was working on the tutus she would say to me, "mom when are you going to make me a purple tutu."
Morgan's favorite birthday present her big duck.
Doing an arabesque. While I was trying to take this picture she said, "this hurts mom."
I told her to do a battement.
Look at that technique.
Happy Birthday Morgan. Look at my beautiful Princess.
