Catching Up....

Whew! I just needed a new template...sort of letting the old of winter go and welcoming in the newness of our future Spring...:)

Well, am I behind or what? First, I would like to say that Cole (affectionately called Coley) is 5.5 months old...precious, precious, precious he is!!! He is still so laid back and sweet...I am enjoying him SO much!! Some days his cute smile is the only thing that keeps me going!! He is blowing bubbles, cooing, laughing, rolling over, and starting to push his way across the floor. He has been getting his first tastes of baby food/cereal...I just love him and the stage where he is in his little life!!

Gracie wore panties during the day this past week...pull ups at naptime and bedtime...she is doing great and has only had a few accidents. Yay for some progress!! She is very domestic and has been helping me fold towels, wash dishes, pick up her toys...she likes things to be just me!! She is also very nuturing and spends time in her day taking care of her baby dolls...she is going to be a good mommy. She is really STUBBORN, though and we go around and around during the day!! She is always testing see if I am going to follow through. I am trying to be consistent and I am seeing small glimpses of hope but some days it feels like she wants to break a record for "most discipline during the day"......

Ty is expanding his vocabulary...words are becoming clearer....everything is a ball to him...even his green peas! He is all boy with quite a temper of his own...he too pushes me to the end of my wits all day long!!! He is precious, though..and his hair matches his temper!

I celebrated my 27th birthday on the 6th of this was a good one although I can't believe that I am 3 years from being 30!!! I was able to go out with Eric for dinner and a movie one night and out with Ashley for dinner and shopping another night!! Fun, fun...and much needed rest, too!!!

We have been in the midst of alot of sickness started with Logan---a stomach virus and then some kind of upper respiratory type infection...then to Ty with Strep, and now to Gracie with probably Strep...we are headed to the doctor tomorrow...all 3 little ones have had cold symptoms for several days now..I am SO OVER IT!! I am selfishly tired of being in the house and away from friends and fun!! Today has been a "order a pizza and eat the whole thing yourself" kind of day!! Thank goodness for the Valentine candy in the kitchen!!

Logan also broke his wrist about 2 weeks ago in bball practice...he had surgery this past Thursday..he is doing well but out for several months....out of bball that is. So where does he go from here???....we don't know....but thankfully the Lord does....:)

Valentine's Day was ok...not the most romantic of times...LOL I made a big breakfast for everyone only to have Ty and Gracie say..."I am not eating that" the rest of us enjoyed the meant the most to my hubby---which made it all worth it! In our time and money starved life..the smallest things mean alot...he LOVES breakfast so it was all worth it!!

I have officially joined Facebook!! I never understood the big deal until I joined but now I get it!! I am having a blast looking at pictures of friends that I haven't seen in a while! So now my computer time will have to be split...but my first love is definitely this blog...:)

Devan will be 19 next Saturday, the 21st!! Hopefully she will be coming home...her car has also bitten the dust! She has asked for some chicken casserole...a good excuse to make it....yummm!!

Well, that is it for now....hope that you all are doing well out there!! It is good to be back! LOL :)
