Marcie doctoring her daddy
Marcie and David holding hands on their way to church. Marcie’s in a phase where all the other quints (except Will) are her “babies” and she’s the mom. They’re not really keen on being her babies. She says Gracie is “my favorite Gracie!” and “my baby Gracie, because she’s so cute!” When I told Marcie today that she was a little crazy, she insisted she was Marcie, not Gracie. The words are too similar, apparently. :)
Sorry these next three are blurry, but they’re so cute I had to include them. This is a store about 15 minutes from us in the nearest town of any size. It’s the first time we’ve taken all five quints with us on a shopping trip. The store has these tiny little carts, and all five immediately went for them. Seth took it VERY seriously, loading up his cart with things he liked, including rice and sodas and cheese. :) We missed getting a picture of him, unfortunately.
I HAD to cut Marcie’s hair, it was such a chronic mess and she despises having it combed. Gavin said she looked like Gollum from The Hobbit, so he was happy I cut it. I think it turned out pretty cute, just like our silly girl!
Isaac said last night that the quints are his best friends. Tonight David said that Isaac is his best friend, and Marcie said that Isaac is also her best friend (granted, she’s said the same thing about Gracie and David too). Bottom line: Our kids really love each other and it’s SUCH a blessing!
Tonight I overheard Isaac coaching Will on how to ask for something politely. He said, “That’s the respectful way to talk,” as he then gave Will the requested drink. Hooray, my pre-teen is coaching his siblings on how to speak respectfully! May it last on into his teen years . . .
