We Survived 11 Months!

Holy cuteness our little girl is 11 months old!!! She weighs in at 24 lbs and is 28 inches tall. She is wearing mostly 18 month clothes. She loves to scream at the top of her lungs for any and every reason. 


She is so close to walking alone. She can take a few steps unassisted but doesn’t quite have her confidence built up enough to just roll on her own. 

She has mouth full of teeth so we made our first trip to the dentist to have a cleaning and check up. She was so good! Went much smoother than I had thought it would.

Can’t believe that my next post will be her turning 1. Wow. This year has just flown by. 



We Survived 10 Months

Quinn is 10 months old! It’s hard to believe! She has tons of personality and is so much fun. She is 29 inches and is 22 pounds. 

We haven’t found anything yet that she won’t eat. She has 4 more teeth! We are up to 8 now. She loves her big brothers and follows them everywhere. She loves bath time with Noah. She tackles him every chance she gets so I don’t think we’re going to have to worry about her holding her own. Haha.

She can stand up without holding on to anything but hasn’t been brave enough to take a step yet. It’s only a matter of time before she’ll be running around!

Christmas 2015 🌲

We had such a wonderful Christmas and New Year. The kids got more than they need and we could not have had more fun with them this year.  

Christmas Eve was spent with my family and the kids are so loved by my aunts, uncles and cousins. 

Christmas morning was so much fun! Santa was very good to our kiddos. They were all on the Good List this year. 


Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! 




We Survived 9 Months!

Look who is 9 months old! Miss Quinn has 4 teeth and is working on number 5! She is all over the house and into everything! She is such a happy girl!

She weighs 22 lbs and is 28.5 inches tall…that puts her in the 90th percentile for her age! 


She is so much fun to watch. Always discovering new things. She’s very vocal and loves to squeal at the top of her lungs! Haha! Can’t wait to see what the next month will bring!



We Survived 8 Months!!!

This little doll keeps getting cuter by the minute! She is 8 months old and is such a busy girl! She crawls all over the place. She loves following us around the house, especially her big brothers. She pulls up on everything! She moves easily around the coffee table and I can tell already that she’s going to be an early walker. I thought about beginning to sabotage her efforts by pushing her down every time she pulled up but decided that wouldn’t be nice. Haha!

She has started saying “Mama mama” and it is the most precious thing ever!  Can you tell how proud I am in this video??? 

She has been battling another tooth. It will make tooth # 3 any day now. Her two little bottom teeth still just make me smile.


She takes her oral hygiene very seriously!   

She is truly a gift. I couldn’t ask for a sweeter baby. I feel so lucky that she is so happy and healthy. Bring on the the next month!



Preschool Pro

Our first two days of school went off without a hitch. Noah was so excited to go into the classroom and see his teachers and classmates. He has two teachers and about 15 classmates: The first two days I could barely get a goodbye out of him. He seemed to careless that I was leaving him…

Then came the next Monday. We were headed back to school that morning and he wasn’t happy about it. He started to cry as soon as we pulled in the parking lot…and continued to do so everyday that week. I would help him out of the car and hold his hand as he cried and walked beside me all the way to his class. When we made it to his class the tears didn’t stop they only intensified. He would look at me wave and say “bye-bye” crying through it all. It was the most pitiful goodbye ever. Just heartbreaking. Each day I told myself you’re doing the right thing. Just keep going and it’s going to get better. 

So here we are about to go into our 4th week and we have a whole new attitude. The tears and heartbreaking goodbyes have come to an end. Week three went so well. He seems to finally be in a routine and doing really well with it. I have a feeling that we are going to be preschool pros before Christmas. I’m so excited to see the progress he’s going to make being there. 


How can he be three?!?!

Well the day has come that my baby boy isn’t my little baby anymore! Thursday was a BIG day. He turned three and started PreK all in one day. It was much harder on me than it was him. We woke up that morning by singing Happy Birthday, which he loved. We drank our milk and got dressed. He was so excited to put on his backpack and head out the door. I had big brother Nathan snap a quick pictures of us as we headed out for his first day of school! 

He was so excited to see all the other kids as we made our way into the school. We made our way down the colorful hallway filled with artwork and decorated doors. He was mesmerized by everything he saw. When we made it to the preschool room he went right in without any hesitation. He instantly made a friend and started playing with the blocks and trains. I spoke with his teacher briefly and kept watching him hoping for a sign that he needed me or wanted me to stay but that didn’t happen. After 10 mins of just watching him play I finally said I better go. I said Bye-bye Noah wishing and hoping inside that he would be sad and rush over to me wanting me not to leave him but he just popped his head up and said “Bye-bye. See you later!” Haha! He didn’t care one bit that I was leaving him. I was the one that was sad! I was the one that wanted to cry. I did hold it together until I made my way out of the school and back into my car. I had tears rolling down my face as I drove home. My little baby boy was turning into a big boy. 

As sad as I was to leave him I’m thrilled that he loves the class and has already started to make friends. I’m excited to see how being in school will change him and help him develop. Three years have just flown by. I just hope the next year goes by a little slower for my sake!
