We've been trying to go roller skating once a week. Regina is really gaining confidence! I've tried to get pictures of the other kids and Andy, but it's usually too dark and they're moving so fast. They all do really well, though.
I showed the kids how to make monkey bread, and it was a mind-blowing experience!
|Step 1: cut bread dough into chunks, roll in cinnamon sugar. Bake.|
|Step 2: remove from oven, cool 5 minutes, then invert on a dish.|
|Step 3: Marvel at what you have made, then try to get a piece before it disappears.|
|This is what Philip thinks the donut hole is for.|

Andy was away in Mississippi for a week on business, so the kids automatically claimed his empty side of the bed. Usually Regina is banished from our bed because she sleeps like a starfish. Philip is usually discouraged from joining us because he likes to push his head into someone's kidneys, or spends the whole night glommed up against somebody so tight we can't move.
The second morning I went downstairs at 6 am to load up the wood stove, and five minutes later when I wanted to go back to my warm bed, this is what I found.
|No room at the inn. Tough luck, Mom. (This is a king sized bed, people.)|
|I'm going to get something else to cover that air conditioner. Eventually.|

April 3 - I'm four months old already! I love to talk and squeal especially in the middle of the night and I love Moana. I can almost sit up on my own, but I can now roll over and scoot myself all over the floor. I love to grab at things and put them in my mouth. That includes everything that's within my reach. I also pull mommy's hair a lot and try to use it as a chew toy. I'm pulling on it now as we speak.😜 My favorite thing to do is FaceTime with daddy. He loves being able to see me grow up.
