Update

Yes, I admit it. I am a blog slacker. But hey, in the words of Phillip's dad, "at least I update the honker!" :0) This last month has been an absolute whirlwind so I'll be brief and focus on the highlights:
March 26. ADELLE TURNED TWO!! It makes me so sad when my babies grow up! She is the cutest little thing and definitely plays the part of a two year old. Her vocabulary is expanding everyday and she speaks way too well for her twenty-four little months. She is a fiesty, fiery little thing and I just LOVE it! She takes such good care of her sisters and always makes sure to share her treats with them. I just love her so much and love everyday that I get to be her mommy.
March 31. Grace had a third eye muscle surgery and came through it very well. It always breaks a little piece of my heart when they wheel her away in her little wagon and I always say the most pleading prayers that Heavenly Father will watch over her. Hopefully this will be the last surgery for a very long time.
April 4. EASTER. I just love Easter. I don't know why, maybe it's because I have little girls, but I love dressing everyone up and having a party with my family. The girls all had so much fun searching for eggs and eating way too much candy. I think they eat more junk on this one day each year than I let them during the rest of the year combined! Yea, they went to bed with tummy aches. Adelle was so cute when the egg hunt started because she'd find an egg and say, "here See-see ('Gracie')" and put it in Grace's basket. Then she found out there was chocolate in those eggs and there was no more sharing! April 8. I finally gave in and got my little Adelle's ears pierced. She looks like such a big girl now! She was so brave during the whole thing and I was so proud of her! She shed a few well-deserved tears during the actual piercing, but feels so pretty and loves her new earrings.
April 21. Grace got a new set of wheels! It's time for her to have a mode of "transportation" other than her walker for long distances so we received a brand new wheelchair from Shriner's Hospital (and our insurance company, of course). We call it "Mermaid Green" and she absoolutely LOVES it! And the timing couldn't be better since she isn't able to wear braces and walk for awhile. (She is being fit for new braces because her current ones have given her some major lesions on her ankles)
We've also been working long, hard, and sometimes painful hours building an awesome swingset for the girls. I'll post more about that later when it's all done.

I hope Grace's eye surgery went well. I feel you there! You have beautiful girls! Adam is hoping that when we do have more kids we get all girls too!
