52 Weeks :: Week 24 (June 11 - 17)

24.2: Spider-girl
The four girls went to a pool birthday party and Mallory got to swim because she had her Spider-man floaty suit on which allows her to swim independently. Chelsea couldn’t swim because of her cast, so she had to watch. And Lucia tended to Tessa. We all had to leave early because Tessa started screaming uncontrollably. We wish we could have stayed longer, but it wasn’t too big of a deal for us to leave a birthday party early, since the girls can’t have the cake and ice cream anyway.

52 Weeks :: Week 24

Tessa at 16 weeks
She has a couple new tricks…

  • first one is called freaking out. We have had four inconsolable crying incidents (lasting upwards of an hour or more) and we aren’t sure what to make of it. Each incident has occurred when we are out in public so we are thinking it may be the result of over stimulation (combination of too loud, too many people, too hot, or just too much of whatever is going on). Once we remove ourselves from the situation, it can take her a long time to calm down and stop screaming. Considering that Tessa is *stimulated* constantly by her sisters, it is surprising that she gets so worked up being in new/noisy/busy places.
  • her other trick is almost rolling over. She squirms and moves and can get from back to her side to almost her belly. Don’t know that it’s completely on purpose because it usually happens when she’s trying to settle herself down before going to sleep.

24.3: Welcome Home, Daddy!
Jonathan is a traveling man these days. His work travel is really picking up (travel = chargeable hours, so the traveling is a good thing work-wise) and then this weekend he went to a friend-from-college’s wedding in Alabama. Lucia wanted to go to the wedding too but finding childcare for the girls for three or four days proved too tricky, so she stayed home. The girls don’t normally pick Jonathan up from the airport, but since today’s homecoming was from a personal trip, they did and were really excited to see their daddy.

24.3: Playing
The girls had their animals and babies all tucked in and ready for a nap in the master bathroom. After they had it all set up, Mallory wanted Lucia to take a picture, so she obliged. Do you like Chelsea’s hair? It’s what we call “crazy hair.” 🙂
I took very few pictures this week, so this shot had to be used!

24.6: It’s easy being green.
Chelsea is very vocal and opinionated about her favorite color. Can you tell?

24.7: Birthday Party Fun
The girls went to a birthday party and M & C didn’t shy away from taking part in hitting the piñata. Chelsea doesn’t let her cast get in the way of her participating in whatever is going on (even if she is left handed).

24.7: Transitioning
Mallory has started to notice all things pink, princess and pretty around her. While she still likes Spider-man and Thomas, they are no longer her favorites.
