On to my kiddos! I'm pretty sure Josh is getting another tooth in, but he's doing well with it. He's pulling himself up without a problem and starting to walk with a little help. He cruises on the edges of things and can stand for a few seconds on his own. It won't be long! Although I'm desperately hoping I get to see it! Cecilia is adorable with her curly-haired self. She is getting awesome at talking and will talk in full sentences! I'm excited, because the last couple of girls didn't talk well until much later! Apparently Cecilia doesn't want Kira talking for her. She's all about electronics and Elmo! She will gladly tell us her happy thing every night and it's usually Elmo!
Leah is such a Daddy's Girl! It's cute, but sometimes I feel bad for poor Scott! She wants to snuggle with him, sleep with him, get piggyback rides from him... She's such a snuggly little girl! She's getting a lot more independent and I'm looking forward to when she can buckle her seatbelt by herself! She's getting there!
Emma desperately wants to be noticed and is quite the artist. She is all about quantity, and I have a TON of cute drawings from EMMA WESTHOFF to Mommy WESTHOFF. She still writes in caps. I'm working on it.
Kira is loving being nine! She's getting awesome at doing her chore and getting her homework done, so she can watch something on netflix. She also loves doing extra chores, so she can pick a prize from the box. She and Emma both got miss Quiet time to spend time with a parent today. So, they got watermelon and got to play outside! Very happy campers!
Ben loves to read and especially loves Dino Squad! He was thrilled when we found it on Netflix! I'm not looking forward to the day that he runs out of episodes! He is expensive to keep in books, but luckily he has rediscovered some books in our garage bookshelf and is a pretty happy camper! Phew!
After Emma threw two skeeballs into the other lane!
Isn't she pretty?
He just turns and cheeses, no problem!
We've been doing this for years. It is one of our traditions!
