The Living Planet Aquarium

We love to go to the Aquarium. The kids have so much fun looking and learning about the utah waters and also the ocean waters. Most of the time my sister Meredith and her two cuties, Kaleb and Brynlee join us. Here are some pictures of our latest Fishy place Extravaganza.
I love this picture of Connor looking at the Jelly fish from his stroller, this was the first time he acutally looked around at the sights, usually he sleeps through it.

Maddie and Bailey looking for a fish hiding in some plants.

Cameron is kind of a little guy, so he has to ask to be held up a lot, by sister or Auntie Meri, or anyone nearby.

Baby Signs

I have taught all of my babies to use baby signs. This is a video of Connor. I was trying to get him to do all of his signs (eat, more, all done, please)He wasn't being super cooperative, and I have music on in the back ground so it's not the best video.

It really helps with their language skills. Both of my daughters were speaking at age one and could speak in full paragraghs by 18 months.

Cameron is very verbal for his age, I can't credit all of it to signs, he has 2 sisters that talk to him constantly. Signs help with tantrums, baby's can say what they want when they use signs. I usually only teach the signs they will need on a daily basis, like eat, drink, milk, more, all done, please and Thank you, and certain toys they like. We have really enjoyed teaching signs to our babies, it's fun to watch them learn and communicate!

I don't know what to say.

This is my darling child Cameron James, he drives me a little insane some days. This is him right after I caught him getting into my make-up bag. He now climbs on counters and tries to get into things that I thought were hidden away safely. My girls never did stuff like this and I am having a hard time knowing what to do about him. if any one has any advice please share, I'm at a loss, I can't tote him on my hip all day or follow him where ever he goes and I want him to feel like he has some independence but I'm constantly scared of what he will do next.

Bailey gets a bob!

Today Bailey got her hair cut at Cookie Cutters. I went there only because I had a coupon for $2.oo off. I have a hard time with her hair because it's so thick and wavy, the sides are curly and stick out of the hair that is not curly. When she was a baby it was ringlet curly and as it got longer the curl streched out and we eventually had to cut it off. So we cut it in a bob today. I hope it will be easier to manage now. She looks cute doesn't she?

Fun With Friends

On Saturday I went out to lunch with my friends. It was a baby Shower for 3 of them all due in the spring. I love giong out and enjoying the company of other women my age and stage of life. It's fun to share stories and just have a quiet outing. Thank goodness I have such a wonderful Mom who will take my babes for me and let me have a day out.

Connor is Crawling! (finally)

Connor started crawling the other day. It happens so fast, one day they just start doing it. It's sad and happy at the same time. Sad because I don't want him to grow up, and happy because we were worried about him. The other kids crawled at around 8 or nine months and he's almost 12 months. In this video he crawls to the door and shuts it on me, stinker! But we love our stinker!
