cleaning Abigail's room

what an eventful day! I skipped the gym and cleaned Abigail and Brady's rooms, Brady made lunch for himself and Elizabeth, and Andrew found his feet (they were previously lost)... so much excitement to be had!

the biggest success of all though was that Abigail and I managed to get her things and her homework done by 4:35 without any anger or head butting or power struggles! we typically get home around 4:10 and her list of things/homework takes about an hour and 45 minutes to do... sometimes longer.  so for this to be done in 20ish minutes is nothing short of a miracle.  WOOHOO!!!

big eyes

a while ago, my sister in law, Kelsey, commented on Andrew's eyes.  "his eyes are SO big! does everyone tell you that?"

honestly, I said no.  I hadn't really noticed a lot of comments about his eyes.  since then, I've paid attention better.  probably 3/4ths of the comments about Andrew are about his eyes.

so I got to thinking about the comments I've gotten with each of my babies and noticed they've all had a theme.

Abigail - how well behaved she was.  always comments from people saying they'd never heard her cry or fuss before.
Brady - how much he cried and how I was always swinging him in his carseat.  also, his crazy long eye lashes and even his defined eyebrows.
Elizabeth - her chin. also, how well behaved she was.
Andrew - his giant eyes.

ps- the other 25% of the comments about Andrew are concerning his eyelashes, which sibling he most closely resembles, and how smiley he is.
