Daddy's t-shirt!

A fun day with the Sullivan boys!

We had such a fun time today with our friends from Michigan. Sarah and the boys came over for the day and boy did my Nicky have a great time with Owen. Alls I heard about tonight was, "Owen this and Owen that......." :) The babies did well-no major meltdowns or anything, which is always a good sign! :)
Thanks, Sarah, for coming over and hanging out with us! (and babysitting us, too!) :)

Emma close up!

Look at all those teeth! :)

Katie close up!

Lexi sent me this pic of Katie from her cell phone. I am not sure why it is in black and white-but still, sooo adorable I thought!

Who's hiding???

Again, not the best pic, but Austin was so cute this afternoon. He found his own "hiding space" in the backyard-underneath the slide/swing. He was happy as can be-sitting down and eating his bologna and cheese sandwich!

Bathing Beauty!

I couldn't find the top to Emma's tankini, so I pulled this bikini out from some hand-me-downs I received from a friend. Emma was looking too cute in this blue two piece-here eyes were really shining!!! (Although you can't see her eyes here...)

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street???

Yes, we ventured off to Sesame Place

today.............what a beautiful day we had! I am so proud of my little ones-they did GREAT!!! And we were very lucky to have Aunt Patti join us on our outing today. 3 adults to four toddlers seemed to work out well! :) Can't wait to go back!

Early Intervention re-evals

Matty and Katie had their re-evals today. I am happy to report that my Matty, who was non-verbal just ONE year ago, is now being discharged from EI !!!!! He has come such a long way-I am so proud of him!!!

Katie is going to continue with EI for Speech Therapy. She is similiar to Austin and Emma, where she just says a bunch of "jargon" so to speak.

So, Katie, Emma, and Austin will be receiving Speech Therapy 2x/mo each. So exciting-I know this will be great for them and it will give them the extra push they may need.......... :)

Pretty Princesses!

Not the best pics of the girls, but you get the idea. Emma has been FASCINATED with "dress up" lately. She will find random socks, shorts, hats, shirts and put them on various parts of her body. She LOVES doing this and it keeps her occupied for some time. Soooo, on my adventure today to Jackson Outlets, I picked up two "princess" dresses from the Disney Store (marked down to $7!!!).............We came home and I put the purple one on Katie and the pink one on Emma. As soon as I put Emma's on, she got so excited. She started saying, "ooooohhhhh", and like twirling around the living room. She loved it! Such a g irly girl! And then my Katie kept staring at me, making sure I was calling her a "pretty princess" too! Sibling rivalry already! :)

What a day.............

Oh, it was surely one of those exhausting days. I am sooo tired.

We took the kiddos for their 20 month checkup today. Nick woke up in the mid of the night burning up with a fever. We gave him Tylenol and he seemed to be doing better today. In any event, we had Nick checked out at the ped also. It turns out Nick has a throat infection, Emma has a double ear infection, and Matty has a sinus infection, croup, and a throat infection with puss-like polyps on his throat. Lovely, huh?

We were going to attempt to bring the kids to the fireworks. I know, crazy, but they all seemed to be doing fine, and Nick was really bugging us. Sooooo, we took them to Friendly's for dinner and all HE** broke loose. Matty would not stop whining, Nicholas' fever came back. So I was holding Nicky b/c he truly did not feel well. Then I had Matty on my other lap b/c he was crying, and I was getting one of "those stares" from another prissy-like customer. You know, one of those "stares" that are a little too long, kind of saying, "Shut your kid up." I think we've all had them, but I was getting quite annoyed with this woman-
Anyway, obviously, we decided to not go to the fireworks..................We came home, put everyone to bed, and gave everyone their meds. We are having a picnic tomorrow with my family-I sure hope everyone is feeling better! :)

My ornery girl............

Katie has definitely become the "ornery" one.........She has such a strong personality about her. You would have never known this one year ago. Last year, we were afraid the other babies would continue to walk all over her. She would let them do whatever they wanted to her. She was quiet and a ver content baby. NOT ANYMORE!!!! :) Katie lets you know she is there. IF she doesn't want her diaper changed, you know! She will kick, scream, hit, and throw herself on the floor very easily. She throws fits left and right to get her own way. She will be kicking her legs and screaming-I will pick her up in the air, and she will still be kicking her feet!!! As I have said before, I am so proud of my little miracle girl-ornery or not!!!! :))

One of those nights..........

Yes, it was one of those nights in the Wilke home. I was alone with the four babies and it seems all He!! broke loose. Emma was crying like crazy, Austin only wanted his "blankie", Matty was being a crazy man on Nicky's rocking chair, and Katie, well Katie was being just too cute! Never a dull moment!!!
