Isabella Rose (Izzie)
born 11:19 a.m.
Izzie was first born and takes her job as leader of the pack very seriously. She has always been outgoing and talkative. She has a lot of words-- and uses them! She is very intelligent. She can count to 15 (often higher, but not reliably), she can sing her abc's and recognizes many letters by sight. She is funny and loves to sing and dance.
We can occasionally butt heads-- she thinks she's the boss of the whole family and doesn't always take kindly to me thinking I can tell her what to do. But even when she is being naughty, she is so stinking cute it can be hard to discipline her.

Julia is our girly-girl. She loves to pick out her own clothes. Since the other kids don't really care yet, I often let her pick out the outfits for the whole crew. She also loves to do her hair. Unfortunately, she has the least hair of all the girls, but I do what I can. She is happy as long as she gets a bow or flower in her hair. She is our biggest dancer! Amy music and she starts dancing along-- even in her car seat she will bob her head and shake her shoulders. She has a lot of words and speaks very clearly. You can understand every word. She can be shy, however, and doesn't always talk to people outside of our immediate family. She is in love with the word 'no' right now, but says it with a little stinker grin that you can't resist!

Drew is mister laid back. That is a very important member of a group this size. He pretty much just goes along with the world around him. He is a big Mama's boy. If he gets hurt or upset, his face will start to crumble while he looks around for me. Once he sees me, he will start crying and running for me. It is a little pitiful, but sooo sweet. He doesn't talk as much as the girls, but he loves to laugh! He has the most contagious little chuckle ever! He is such a happy little guy!

Our little Paige is such a sweetie! She is the little Mommy of the group. She is the first to hug and kiss an upset brother or sister. She loves to help Mommy with everything. She is also our biggest cuddler. The flip side to this is that she is very sensitive. She cries easily and is tough to calm down. She doesn't like to have her picture taken, but I wish I had more pictures of her sweet smile. She is adorable and when she smiles it melts my heart.
I am so grateful for my little crew!
