It’s been forever since we’ve done a sister snapshot on the blog, and every time I look back to read old ones I am so happy I took the time to do them! I haven’t posted as much about the kids on here as I used to, and that is intentional, but I never want to keep them completely out of this space since obviously they are my whole life. It is freeing to keep my work so much more separate from my family these days, while we pursue lots of other things (both on and off the blog) and I really love being able to take breaks from social media. Lots of fun things happening very soon, but for now, I thought I would share a little update of the girls at their current ages & some pictures from our rainy day walk! I will never get over how beautiful the cherry blossom trees are here!!
Harper (6 years old!) – Wants to be a singer when she grows up, loves cooking shows & blows our minds daily with her art skills. She is always drawing, and writing little stories to go along with things, she even finds a way to get a piece of paper and pencil if she is in time out to tell us how unhappy she is about it. 😉 She is still the leader of the pack & sets such a good example for her sisters, although we are getting to a place where she definitely needs one on one time with us where she doesn’t always have someone asking her to play school or draw things for them. She loves kindergarten, although she is exhausted at the end of every day. She always wants to help in the kitchen or help me with projects I am doing. My forever bestie. Her heart is gold & her imagination is wild!
Eloise (almost 4!) – Always dancing, still obsessed with babies (both real & fake) and never wants to change out of pajamas. She has always been the funniest kid, she is bouncing off the walls almost all the time and still rocks herself to sleep every night. She is constantly singing (all of her school songs are the cutest!) and makes up songs about almost everything. She still calls her bangs “fangs” and hates getting her hair brushed. She loves trying to keep up with Harper’s schoolwork, writing sight words or telling us to ask her math problems, she can’t wait to go to school with Harper again! She is definitely the most like me in almost every way except her crazy amount of athleticism, we are positive she will be an olympic gymnast some day. And just like the day she was born, I basically want to squeeze/snuggle her every second of the day.
Claire (2 and a half, but tells everyone she is 7) – Still loves coffee, asks all questions with her eyes closed & loves to carry things around in ziplock bags. We are in the thick of the terrible twos, but for the most part, Claire has gotten to be so much easier and sure knows how to charm us to get almost anything she wants. 😉 She will do anything to make us or her sisters laugh, including saying “poopy pants” a hundred times in a row, and she gets the giggles so hard she will completely fall over. She is obsessed with our cat, more than Harper or Eloise ever have been, she will spend half an hour walking around the house trying to find her & begs for me to put Izzy on her lap every time she is sitting down. She still calls pony tails “toe nails” and loves to eat every kind of cereal in the house all in the same bowl at once. My favorite part of the day with her is singing ABCs and Jingle Bells every night before bed, and come back in her room over and over for “one more kiss.”
Hope you all survived daylight savings, here’s to early bedtimes and a happy Monday tomorrow!217
