3 Years Old

I love this picture!! We had a similar picture taken when the girls were 3 months old. It's amazing how big they are now!
There is A LOT of attitude in this picture
This is such a "Rory" look.
Sweet Rory
I think this is the best picture we have ever gotten of Abby. I love it!!

Sweet Abby

Our big 3 yr. old Abigail
Our big 3 yr. old Aurora

Our girls are 3!! I can't believe it!!
So sweet
This past Saturday, we had the girls' 3 yr. pictures made. They turned out amazing!! Of course, when you have such cute subjects to work with, it's hard to get bad pictures. I may be a little biased!! The girls did such a good job taking directions and giving them to the photographer. We are very proud of our big girls!!
Things are moving right along at the Hanna house. We are working very hard to get everything ready for the arrival of Miss Madelynne. She should be here in about 5 weeks. It's crazy to think that we will have another little one in the house in just a few short weeks. The girls are really handling all the change pretty good. I've been proud of them. They have even gotten into the spirit of helping us prepare for the new baby. I'm not entirely sure how much they understand about having a new baby, but they are rolling right along with the rest of us. Heck, there are times that I don't know if Michael and I know exactly what it's going to be like to have two 3 yr olds and a new baby, but we're always ready for an adventure!
Our big girls have decided that they are ready to be potty trained.... PRAISE THE LORD!! Rory has been pretty well done for a while now, but Abby has fought us every step of the way to getting trained. The other day, she informed me that she had decided not to be a baby anymore and that she would wear panties like a big girl. Since then, she hasn't had any problems or fits going to the bathroom. I guess she just had to decide on her own that is was time. There are no complaints from her Mommy, that's for sure. So, we have two big girls wearing big girl panties!! I've tried to convince my OBGYN that we would like to go ahead and get the upgrade on the new little baby where she will come already potty trained, but she seems to think that particular upgrade isn't available yet. Oh well. :) The girls are still enjoying their gymnastics class. The class year will be coming to an end before too long. It's hard to believe how fast it has gone by and how much the girls have both learned. Both have thrived in their class and we look forward to next year!
Michael and I are both doing well. We are usually running to keep up with the girls. This Friday, we will celebrate our 5th anniversary! Where has the time gone? It has been a wonderful 5 yrs. full of love and excitement!! Never could we have imagined the journey that we were headed on together, but I know neither of us would change a thing. We are planning a short stay away from home to celebrate our anniversary! It will be the first time that the girls have stayed the night without us. We thought it might be good to have a practice run before the new baby arrives. So, Mimi and Papa are going to keep the girls overnight for us. I know that all will go great and that they will probably be spoiled rotten when we come home. :) The girls are super excited about their first sleep-over!! It will be great!!
