Lately Abbey has been eating all the ketchup we will let her. She'd drink it from a straw if allowed.

Lately Luke has been super into hanging out with his Daddy, wanting to be just like him.

Lately Luke has been running and jumping and climbing so often - and so fast - that I have to force myself to remember he once had wickedly crooked feet. No longer.

Lately we've been sllloowwllyy making steps with potty training...letting the kids lead. Abigail is interested and does well, but is by no means "trained". Luke has zero interest, but that's okay. If I know that kid at all, he'll wait until he's sure he can do it. Once he's sure he can master something, he goes for it. Until then, he's always a little skiddish. The kid learned to walk in ONE DAY, so I'm hopeful we'll not have any battles.

Lately we've been eating blueberries. A lot of blueberries. I had to take them away from Luke the other day because I was worried he might get sick!

Lately we've been playing outside the second it's warm enough.

Lately Abbey and Luke have been having so much fun with their imaginations. I'm learning three year olds can be VERY creative, and it's fun to watch their imaginations run wild. 

Lately Abbey has taken to referring to herself as "the kitty". It is far more adorable/less creepy than it sounds. She'll say "But Momma the kitty doesn't want to go to bed" or "the kitty is thirsty, the kitty really wants some apple juice". And occasionally she'll just meow.

Lately our two babies have really, really been playing together. Two newborns was HARD work. Two three year olds is still hard work, but it's really fun having two at the exact same age...lately.

Lately our favorite shows have been Martha Speaks, Doc McStuffins, Curious George, and Justin Time.

 Lately we've been doing an awful lot of somersaults around here. Both kids just learned recently how to do them, and now they're all about it =)

 Lately we've been having picnic lunches and dinners outside.

Lately, I've really enjoyed being a Momma.

Wonderful blog for Mother's Day.

How nice to have this kind of "journal" for you and kiddos to look at years from now. Not sure how you save/back up a blog, but definitely going to be special to your family.

You can blame her Auntie Natalie for the ketchup obsession. Mmm ketchup is totally my thing. I crave it morning, noon, and night.
