Spring has sprung

OK, so I never made a single post in the month of March. So much for the promises I made to myself to write at least once a week...I suppose those promises went wayside along with my plan to go to the gym at least four times a week. The world will go on.

Spring is here..and as per usual, my mind begins to dance with images of horses floating down the rail with style and grace...my horse specifically. Also, images of money floating away drift in and out of my mind. Gosh I love spring. It is always filled with such promise. With the exception of its poopy smell, it just might be my favourite time of year. A new beginning. This year marks the first full summer I will spend with our girls. I get to watch them dip their toes in the water at the beach this summer, wear pretty sundresses and play in the grass. I am pumped.

Svea and Olivia are hysterical. My life is complete. Svea is ornery and full of mischief and has this hysterical sense of humour. Olivia is serene and gentle and loves to cuddle. What totally different babies I have. Svea is now fully mobile. She is into everything, much like I was warned about by all those well meaning folks who warned me I would have my hands full. Olivia is just beginning to push up..she is quite satisfied at this point with wiggling across the room backward on her belly. I am not sure where her personality comes from...neither Ben nor myself are particularly calm or serene. Perhaps we will find out when she becomes a teenager. But we aren't there yet...and I intend to enjoy these next 12 years until the big 13 hits. So we wont talk about that.

Anyway, I have got to run..the girls should be waking soon and I have show clothes to order....
