Amber's 18 month pics

Here are the pictures from Amber's photo session. I wasn't super thrilled with our photographer. She was saying, oh that was a cute one, but in my opinion, Amber never REALLY smiled like she does at home. They did turn out cute, but I wanted them cuter!

Amber Loves Suckers!

Amber LOVES suckers! She went through a time where that was the first thing she asked for in the morning when she first woke up. We went to the drug store to get an RX for Lauren, and I had told Amber that we would go get a sucker at the store, so we looked for one and I saw the blow pops with gum in them, I didn't really want that one, and then I saw BAGS of suckers, I didn't really want that either.

So this is what I found. I think she really liked it. Although it seemed a little dangerous because she hit Samantha in the head with it in the car. She was trying to show Samantha her sucker and she bonked it on Samantha's head. Poor baby! Amber has been pretty concerned about her sucker too. She will eat if for a while and I think because it is so heavy her arms starts to hurt from holding it. She starts telling me her sucker hurts her and then I tell her we will give her sucker a break. She has woke up a few times saying, "My sucker, Amber's sucker!" I am not sure if she is having bad dreams about someone taking her sucker or what, but it is kind of funny. I have to keep reassuring her that her sucker is fine.

Of course the rest of the girls are jealous of the big lollipop that Amber has. Lauren keeps asking to eat it and I keep telling her that it is all fuzzy because Amber lays it on the floor sometimes, but that doesn't stop Lauren.
Hope you enjoy the pictures of Amber and her Lollipop!!

School starts and lost teeth

Lauren had a wiggly tooth from WA, I think she got bonked by the teeter-totter, or was that Lindsey? Her tooth has been quite wiggly and I have noticed her gums above that loose tooth not looking so great. I told her on Saturday we were going to pull that tooth out. It was ridiculously loose. We took a picture of her with her wiggly tooth, it reminds me of Nanny McPhee if you have ever watched the movie. Kind of a gross picture of her lost tooth. She took pride in all that blood.
Today was the first day of school for the big girls. Lindsey and Lauren were VERY excited to be in 1st grade and all day, and have lunch and all those exciting things of an "all dayer" would have.
Amber was even sporting the spirit this morning, as the girls were getting dressed, Amber kept putting on things too. She found Lauren's jammies and her underwear and had both of those at different times on. Then all morning Amber kept asking, "Lauren go?" and "Lindsey go?" and "Emily go?" Poor thing, she will miss them for a little while, but I am sure she will also enjoy more time with me without the big girls.

I maybe should have waited until school got out, to report on their stories and what not. I figured I would take advantage of the quite moment now.
