Eating out for Mommy's Birthday

Everyone gets to pick where they want to go out to eat for their birthday. For my birthday we went to Olive Garden. We had a blast. Doug and I treated ourselves to a sleep number bed for our birthdays, Christmas, anniversary and any other gift giving time for the next few years!!!!! I LOVE my sleep number bed. It is wonderful. I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day and with 3 kiddos and our crazy schedule I have to be up to par to make it. I love my life and thank God daily for my wonderful family.

More Birthday Pictures

Sarah loves to have Happy Birthday sang to her. She gets so excited.

She loves to get gifts but just a few at a time and she does not like all the package stuff, just the toy.

But sometimes, even when she picked the toy out at the store and she loved it there.......she DOES NOT love the toy out of the package. This is what happened this year. I was really bummed because I thought she would love it. She started screaming when she took it out of the bag. We put it back in the bag and she finally calmed down. We tried again at home, but she still did not like it. Tried a few nights later, still HATES the doll.

I think it is the hair. I normally try to make sure that dolls do not have real feeling hair, but this one does and I thought since she loved it in the store maybe she was over that sensory issue.....But NO she still does not like hair on dolls. Oh well, such is life with my beautiful princess and I would not trade it for anything. Love my baby girl!!!!!

My sick babies

Elijah and Sarah are home from school today with a tummy bug. They are definately better this morning than last night. Maybe it is just a 24 hour bug. Isaac seems ok. He had a large spit up yesterday morning that I am wondering now about. He also got choked last night really bad and not really sure why. He may be sick too. For today we are having a pj day with lots of cuddling!!!

Happy 5th Birthday Sarah!!!!!

Today you turn 5 years old. I was not there for your birth, but I already loved you in my heart. I was praying for you already and words can not express how heavy my heart was for you and how much I wanted to hold you in my arms. My heart was filled to overflowing when I learned of my beautiful princess. You have blessed me and taught me so much in your 5 years. You are a princess in every way. You have grown so much in the last year. You have jumped 2 clothing sizes. You are very independent and tell me all the time "I do it". Your speech has really taken off this year and I love having conversations with you. You can count to 15, know your colors, most shapes, most of your ABC's, and so much more. You are now potty trained. You have learned to use sissors and joined all the other preschoolers and have cut your hair. Thank goodness it was a very small spot! You no longer want to take a nap, but will still stay in your room for a rest time. You started out in Kindergarten this year at school, but your teacher did not give you a chance and school became a struggle. For the first time, you did not want to go to school and became hesitant to leave me. We then moved you to preschool and you are back to loving school. Now you get to ride the bus home from school(this was really hard for mommy, but you are the first one off and there are only 3 kids on the bus and we are only 4 miles from school!). Thursday was your first day to do this and you were very excited!!! I am looking forward to seeing how much you grown in the next year. You are my pretty, pretty princess!!!!! I love you very, very, very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9 month old

Sorry I am just now getting back to my 9 month post on Isaac. I hurt my back and the last few months have been rough. I have good and bad days and the last 2 days have been bad days. I will do a post later on all the details, but now back to my cutie pie!!! Don't you just love this picture!!! He is such a cutie and a joy. He is Mr. Personality. Isaac now weighs 17lbs and 4 oz. I really thought he was closer to 20lbs, but he has decided that he loves table food now and is giving me a fit about taking a bottle. He needs the formula, so we are in a battle of wills right now! He is 26.5 inches. We have really noticed a big length growth in the last few weeks. Isaac is now on all fours and rocking. He lunges forward and really tries to crawl. He did crawl a little on Wednesday, but has not repeated it yet. He is now feeding himself table food at meals and Mrs. Irene(speech) has him drinking from a straw cup!!!! He says mama, dada, baba, and makes tons of sounds. He has learn to squeal and uses it to get our attention. He loves his big brother and loves to pull sister's hair(just like a boy!). Elijah and Sarah love him. Sarah has been very helpful with him, so helpful that we caught her carrying him the other day! He was giggling and I was panicing. He is a true blessing from God!!
