Hello everyone. I know it's been a while since I've updated the blog. I don't really have a good excuse so I won't even go there. It's not like I'm busier having three kids. In fact Samara is such a good help. She always wants to give me a hand with the housework and lighten my load.

She loves to clean up the pots and pans cupboard:

She helps with the laundry:

She empties the dishwasher:

And even finds time to play with her letters:

She's doing really well and advancing every day. She's taking 5 - 6 steps at a time now without holding onto anything and she's pretty proud of herself too. Of course she has two older siblings cheering her on and making her feel pretty special when she walks. I haven't been able to get a good picture of it yet but I'm trying.

Victoria is all of a sudden reading and she can read pretty much anything. We often wonder what Victoria and Austin are up to when it's really quiet but when we go investigate we find them sitting quietly with Victoria reading a book to Austin. What a great arrangement - it works for both of them.

So things are going well in the Carmody household. We're enjoying the warmer weather and Samara loves to be outside too. I'll try to post more pictures over the next few days.

Sunny Days

Here are some pictures of the kids from a beautiful sunny day last week. Today was yucky and rainy but the rest of the week is supposed to be better. Here's hoping! (notice Samara can still walk behind the car with her fingers in her mouth!)

Here's Victoria telling Grandma all about her gas station.

And of course Austin being a boy . . . diggin' up worms.
