6 months and counting...

My baby girl is 6 months old today. She is growing like a weed. She has just begun to show signs of cutting teeth. So some days she is a little on the fussy side. She is doing some better with her Acid reflux and still taking meds for that. We go to her 6 month Check up next week.
She loves her big brothers and watches everywhere they go and just laughs at them. Kyle is so ruff with her where Caleb is gentle and loving. The boys just protect her anytime other kids come around her. It is so sweet. I pray that continues as she gets older.

She will be going on her second trip to the Smokies since she has been born. We are leaving out tomorrow headed to Townsend to stay in a cabin. Andy will be working at Fontana Dam Wednesday and Thursday and me and the kids will be adventuring. :) Not real sure what we will do but it will be fun nonetheless. Friday we will head home sometime. I am looking forward to getting away from everyday life for a few days.

Two Days in a Row...

Can you believe it?? I am writing again today!! Haha

Had such a wonderful time this morning at Ladies Breakfast at Chase Park Church of Christ. It truly was a wonderful uplifting lesson from Brandi! (even though I was rocking Addie to sleep during it). After it was over I helped mom pack up over 100 different Lighthouses in every possible fashion!! I really had no idea she had that many in their house. Anything that had a lighthouse on it it was there this morning. Mom and Nicole you did a great job! Then mom and I left the church at about 11:30 and headed to the Craft Show. Which is our most favorite thing to do!!

Thanks mom for the memories I pray that we have many more of these together with Miss. Addie in tow! I love my mommy time and I hope she will cherish time with me like I do my mom.
Oh the days with all five of us together are the most fun!! Now that Abdy works 10 hour days we get him every Friday! We have gotten lots lots of little projects done around the house the past three weeks. We have bought the kids a swing set, built a fire pit with a brick area around it and now we are moving our swing to the back.

With all the nice weather outside the boys have loved it and so have I not being cramp in the house. Caleb has just become such a bigger helper while Andy has worked outside. And Kyle is just running everywhere he can go!

Today we had pictures taken by my cousin Leah and then had a picnic at Big Spring Park. Oh the boys loved it, well except for the picture part haha. We could not get them both to smile at the same time for nothing. They wanted to through rocks at the fish or climb on the rocks or make silly faces. But that is ok too maybe one day I will get them both smiling. The joys of my boys always makes me smile. We tried to get Adeline to sit for some pictures but just do ready for that.

What is Rest?????

I realized today that it had been a week sense I had wrote anything. It has been a very busy week. We were so busy over the weekend just enjoying having Andy home on Friday was so nice. We went shoe shopping for the kids and then had supper at a Ichiban (Japanese restaurant) it is kind of like a Shogun just in Marshall county. Hahaha but the boys were loving the dinner show and if course the food was delicious.

Saturday I was busy getting ready for Tracey's baby shower until about 10:30 when I was getting Caleb ready an pulled on his arm to comb his hair and well that was a trip to the ER. He had nurses maid elbow. Which is where the tendon rolls over the bone and pulls and obviously really hurts. Poor guy but he was a big boy and did not cry to bad. But we did make it to the shower and enjoyed it.

Andy has had a very hard week at work with all the rain it makes his job very nerve racking since he works on Dams on the Tennessee River. He has worked 12 hours a day since Tuesday. But thankfully he is off tomorrow. We are hopefully going to get a wooden play set for the kids and then going to eat with my family for Andy's birthday (that was in February).

I have been planning our trip to Colorado in May and I am getting so excited about it.

Catch up!

It has been awhile since I posted something! So let's get caught up!

The boys are much better and finished up their mess yesterday. Caleb has some allergies going on but nothing to bad.

We enjoyed the beautiful weather this past weekend. Saturday we ate at Cracker Barrel for breakfast and then went to Lowe's. We got some indoor plants and the boys new shovels. They came home and played so hard and dug a ton of holes. It was such a good day. :-)

Andy started working 10 hour days 4 days a week on Monday so it has been some long days with out him. Also Caleb started Sunday not taking naps so night time is just awful right now. He is so whiny and tired. Not sure how to fix that but it helps at night putting him to bed. He is out in less than 10 minutes where it use to take us about an hour to get him asleep.

We have played a lot outside this week and done some yard work too. Caleb and I have had so much fun trimming bushes while Kyle and Addie take their naps. He is becoming such a big boy it just seems like yesterday he was having his first birthday. He will be 4 in June.

Tomorrow starts our first day with Andy home on Fridays. Not sure what we will end up doing but I am really looking forward to more time with him. Since he took the job with TVA he leaves at 5:30 and does not get him till almost 6 now. So having every Friday will be nice. I can't believe he has been with TVA for a year in April. Time flies.

Well time for me to finish things up so I can hit the sack. It was a busy day today. I went ribbon shopping and came home and made 8 bows for a friend and for Tracey's new baby girl. Can't wait for her shower on Saturday!
