Abby loved the tractor
Rory wanted to climb straight to the top of the tractor
Look at how high she climbed all by herself
Braxton wanted to have his picture made too!!

Everything has been going pretty well at the Hanna house. We are really enjoying the warmer and rainy weather around here. It's nice to not have snow every other day. We were beginning to think we were going to have to dig out from the snow for the rest of our lives.
The girls are still growing by leaps and bounds and shocking us every single day with what they come up with. They are constantly telling us stories. It's too funny what they come up with sometimes. Michael and I laugh all the time. :) Abby is our little "witness for the state" (thank you John and Jenny for putting a name to it). She will tell me everything that happens while I am out. She does the same for Daddy. We get a run-down of everything. We have been working on getting the girls to dial my number if they need me while I'm gone and to dial Daddy's number if they need him while he's not at home. That way, they can get help if something happens while just one of us is at home with them. Rory called me one night during my Mothers of Multiples meeting to let me know that Daddy made her sit in time-out and she was not happy about it. I guess even the best laid plans can backfire from time to time. Both girls are doing really well with their alphabet and learning how to count. Rory thinks that it's so much fun to count backwards. When I ask her to count she says "five, four, three, two, one." She can count forward, but just prefers to do it backwards... silly girl. We have also been working on colors with the girls. They are both doing really well with telling us their different colors!! We have such smart little girls!!
Things with Abby have been going much better. The doctor had us give Abby melatonin at night before she goes to bed. It helps her relax and sleep better at night. Since then, Abby has gained almost a pound and is not getting sick as much. She still gets sick some nights, but not nearly as often. Praise the Lord!! We have an appointment to take her to a Pediatric Sleep Clinic in June. At that time, they will test her to see if a sleep disorder is causing her difficulties. We are also going to take her to see an ENT (ear, nose and throat doctor) to have her adenoids checked at the end of this month. There is a possibility that her enlarged adenoids are giving her problems and causing her not to get enough rest. We are hoping that we are close to an answer for our precious angel. She is one of the toughest little girls that I have ever known. She just faces each challenge and keeps on going. What a trooper!!
Michael and I are doing well. Michael is looking forward to the end of school. He has 8 more weeks and then he's off for the summer!! We are planning to do a little traveling and taking the girls to some different places we know that they will enjoy!! We are going to Arkansas at the end of May for my cousin's wedding. The girls are going to be flower-girls. We are looking forward to seeing our family and having time to catch up. We are planning a family trip with our good friends, the Merriss Family, to take the kids to the zoo and let the boys go to a Pro baseball game. Then in July, we are going to try to get our family to the mountains to enjoy some time away. All in all, I think we are going to have an exciting summer with many new adventures for the girls to enjoy!! We are so thankful that we are going to get to spend this fun time together!!
~The pictures were taken at Goodnight, TX when we went there for a funeral. The girls had a good time playing with their cousins and exploring the canyons.~
