Family weekend - brunch, swimming and dim sum with friends

It's always a girl-heavy event when we're invited.  Natalie, Lauren and Ashley had lots of girl-time with other girl-friends this weekend.

Eight girls at brunch at Cafe Deco.

No more baby

This month, we said good-bye to Natalie's trundle bed and hello to a new bunk bed for both Natalie and Lauren. Ashley has moved to sleep in Lauren's old bed.  The crib was given to a friend.  For the first time in 7 years, we don't have a crib in the house!  I feel like we officially don't have any babies any more.

The new kid's room set-up.  A bunk (for big girls) and low bed (for Ashley).

Farewell crib. You've served us well.

Happy 7th Birthday to Natalie

Today Natalie turns 7 years old.  Hard to believe how fast she is growing up!  Today, she hosted friends from school at a joint birthday with her BFF Olivia.  The girls had a great time!  After the party, our family celebrated Natalie's birthday together over sushi and Sift cupcakes.  Below are pics from the day.

Catch-up photos and videos from April through May

Every so often, I come across all the great photos and videos I've not yet posted.  Here is a collection over the past month. 

Video 594 - Sisters jumping and whomping on the bed.

Video 595 - Ashley is obsessed with her belly button.  She tries to find other people's belly buttons too, even if that involves lifting up their shirts and dresses in public daylight.

Video 596Watching the girls play together is so gratifying.  See Lauren bumping Ashley and both of them laughing.

Video 597 - Natalie practicing for her music assessment.

How to keep a baby entertained while in the bathroom.

When you have kids, sometimes you wake up to stuff like this.
