Brileigh the "Talker"

I got the video camera out to get a record of Brileigh "talking". She is pretty much nonstop chatter. Except for yesterday when Rylan got a hand full of her hair. Then it was a scream of agony! Poor girl! He agrees with his dad that her screeching gets old fast! As shown in the video, Brett just stares at her in wonder, while Rylan usually ends up crying for her to stop!

Mute no more

My daughter... Since she was born she has always been quiet. So quiet, my husband (who worries a lot) thought she was a mute. She does cry once in awhile when she's upset, and she can hear. I told him you don't need to worry about that, she'll find her voice some day. This week while he was away for work, Brileigh found her voice. She is a wild women all of the sudden. She wiggles everywhere! And her voice! I wouldn't call it talking, more like shrieking! NONSTOP shrieking. She loves to hear herself. Her brothers on the other hand stare at her in awe, or annoyance (I haven't figured out which yet). When Jeremy came home from his trip it took him only 5 minutes to say, I think I liked her better as a mute! I on the other hand think it is quite cute. She loves to shriek at her toys as she rolls all over the place. The picture below is one of the few times she is quiet these days.


Rylan on the other hand was very happy his sister decided to take a break.


What I've Been Working On
I got my punch needle supplies out the other day. I haven't done any of that for a few months. I think I'm going to mount some designs on fabric covered boxes. This is the first one I've started. I don't know what background color I'm going to do yet. Blue, Cream?

Updates

We've been having rainy days lately. I thought it was supposed to be April showers and May flowers! Oh well, since we've been forced to spend our days inside, I've finally got around to updating my website! I've added a lot of items to the sale category with low low prices! These are just a few of the things you'll find!




A lot of items, I only have 1 left, so first come, first get! Check them all out! www.theoldesaltbox.com

The end of April, the babies got baptized. It was a wonderful service, the babies didn't even cry! They actually laughed at the pastor when he poured water on their heads.


Coming from a 2 religion home, the babies, like myself were also dedicated to the Lord in my hometown Mennonite church. The service was on Mother's Day. After all of the picture taking my arms were about to fall off. Notice I'm holding 2 babies, while my husband only has one!


The beginning of May also brought baby food! Brileigh was not sure of sweet potatoes the first time she had them.


After getting used to the new flavors and textures, they like all of the different fruits and vegetables. Brileigh's bib is an oxymoron of the expression on her face!


And last, Brett not only looks like his dad, he shares his thoughts on shopping.


We've been having a lot of fun lately. The babies are starting to grab at toys and notice their surroundings. They are paying attention to one another. Brileigh and Brett role over, while Rylan thinks that is overrated. They still take a good 4 hour nap in the afternoon, which gives me time to craft! We actually have a pretty good schedule going on.

6:30 I wake up and get a workout done
7:30 The babies wake up have a bottle and eat cereal
8:00 - 12:00 Play and cat nap
12:00 The babies have a bottle with a fruit and vegetable
12:30 - 4:30 Nap Time
5:00 Cereal and Bottle
6:00 - 8:00 Play Time and if it's nice we go on a walk!
8:00 Bottle then off to bed

And when I say off to bed, I mean it. They fall asleep while having their bottle. And the best part? They sleep ALL NIGHT LONG! I hope this keeps up!

When I get some more items done, I'll post some more pictures. I have a bunch of things started at the moment!
