I figured since I update on Baby Reese so much, it's about time for an update on these other two precious ones

Let's start with t.r.o.u.b.l.e.

Well, she's still a total hoot. A free spirit if you will:) We love her to pieces.

She's almost four!!! And really growing up.

She is into baby dolls a lot, playing outside, and watching the Duggars! She is so funny, she wants to watch the Duggars constantly:)) She knows them by name....which is quite impressive since there's 21 of them! She loves being in the schoolroom with us and does her own thang. And she really enjoys her preschool class at co-op.

She's also tough as nails. This little girl has really been through it these past few months. She got another set of tubes in her ears and her adenoids out. This week she has been complaining more and more about her ears hurting (still), so I took her in. The Dr. looked in her ears for a while and they decided he needed to look with a microscope. He ended up pulling her tubes out (the ones she's only had in for a month!!!!) They did that papoose thing to her, where they wrap you up so you can't move. Wanna guess how that went??? Yep, they said she broke the record for the loudest scream. (Man, I'm shocked! haha:) He said the tubes were just sitting in there. He's never seen this happen after only a month. Gees. Now what for this poor girl? Not to mention the $2500 we just spent on them! So when I said to him, "You mean we just spent all this money for nothing?," he assured me that it was not for nothing. She was in really bad shape before these tubes and now her ears look really good. Praise the Lord!!! I was so glad to hear that one. And after Pipey calmed down she said, "My ears feel much better!" She even told Dr. Reulbach so. He gave her 15 stickers and 2 suckers:) Sweet girl.

She also has some major eczema going on. So we are looking in to some big diet changes to help her. Good thing she loves veges and rock-a-mole (guacamole piper style:). It's probably going to be a no fruit, no sugar, no dairy diet. Lord.Have.Mercy.

She's a diligent sweet spirited girl

We've been working hard at school, trying to catch up. This week she has started reading!!! We do lots of celebrating when we have a big moment:) And this was definitely a big one!
She really seems to enjoy math. And she's doing really well with co-op.

We started a new chore system this week and she is all over it! It's so cute. If she does all of her chores each day for 10 days, she gets to go on a special date with Daddy. And she just can't wait! And she does above and beyond her little chore chart around here. Very eager to help mommy with whatever I need.

She also loves to help cook. Yay!!

Still wants to spend every waking moment with her buddy Ellie. They do play well together.

And she's recently gotten in to watching TV. Nick Jr to be exact.

Last but not least, she lost her first tooth:) Big. Girl.

These girls are so precious to us. Parenting is hard work, but they are so worth it. It's truly the most rewarding job!
