Just One of the Gang

For a long time, my girls have played mostly in pairs. Isabella and Anastasia spending their time pretending and creating. Little Catherine and Francesca running around in circles and falling down. Victoria sometimes got left out, not intentionally, but because she just wasn't as mobile. I am thrilled that now my three little ones have all joined forces. 

The Three Musketeers, or maybe the Three Stooges. 

Last night, the big girls went to a sleepover. Catherine decided that she and her sisters should have a sleepover too. In my bed. Yea! 

The sleepover lasted about five minutes. Francesca kept getting up and running around and Victoria was fussy. That was the end of that. But they sure looked cute for that five minutes. 

They have a new game called "fall down on the bed and laugh hysterically". 

Victoria has even figured out how to push herself up to a standing position by herself. That is no easy feat when you can't bend you legs. I tried, but couldn't do it. I am amazed that Victoria isn't afraid to fall down since she can't bend her knees. She is getting really confident. 

They are wild! (I love how Catherine is hanging on to Victoria to make sure she lands safely)


It wasn't long ago that Victoria would just sit quietly and not join in, but no more! She is loud and quite demanding! Her latest saying, "get up, get up!"

Sisters are forever! 


  1. This just blows me away! Victoria is blossoming so much, so quickly! Will she ever be able to bend her knees? I pay she will! Will it require surgery or some kind of physical therapy?
    All of the little girls are delightful and it is a blessing to see them having so much fun together!

  2. Sisters=Love. What a blessing each one is!

  3. Victoria's grins just make my day! I am so glad to see her joining in. Little Catherine reminds me so much of my youngest grandson...a mind of her own, no doubt! That just makes them more fun because you never know what will come out of their mouth next. Mine keeps me laughing all the time.

  4. Can I ask for another video? I love to her their screaming around!

  5. This is one of your sweetest posts! Such wonderful sisters! :)
