Fresh Start - New Blog

So i've started a new blog, I loved my old blog/journal but I needed something that I could customize a little bit more, and something that was a bit faster/easier.  This blog will still have updates about the boys but it will also have updates on what Kevin and I have been or are up to.  It's about the whole family now.  You can still view the old journal here: http://babyryan08.livejournal.com/ but make sure you come here for recent blog posts. 

Enjoy :)

Happy 10 Months!

Wow, I can't believe Sera is 10 months old already!  Where the heck is the time going.  I feel like I just had her 2 months ago, not 10!  I'm really not ready for her to turn 1 yet....I just want the next 2 months to go by reaaaaallly slloooooooow!

Happy 9 Months!

9 Months old today....time is going by too fast!

Just a few pics

Was playing with my camera for a bit today and took a few pics of these cuties :)



Happy Birthday Ryan!

Today my oldest turns 6!  SIX!  Where has the last 6 years gone?  It sure has gone by fast that's for sure!

He was so excited to turn 6 and now talks about when he's turning 7.  He's so quick to grow up but I remind him to enjoy being a kid because once you are older you will be wishing you were still one.

Ryan got lots of goodies today, we did presents this morning and the rest when daddy got home from work, after that we went for dinner with Kevin's parents, sister and brother in law and then after that is was back to Kevin's parents house for more presents and cake.




I made mini cupcakes for him and his class, he was super excited...can you tell? lol!

 





All this and then a party for him on Sunday....what a lucky boy!

Happy 8 Months!

My baby girl is 8 months old today!


Happy New Year!

Wishing all our friends and family a Happy New Year!  Tonight we watched movies with the kids.  Sera lasted till about 930, Alex lasted till 10 and Ryan lasted till 11....and I lasted till 1130 lol!  I just couldn't stay up the extra half an hour.  Kevin was able to last till midnight!
 
 
 





Santa!

I took the kids to visit Santa today.  I got them all dress up....man they clean up nice - not that they need much cleaning up lol. 

The boys as usual were so excited to see Santa.  This is Sera's first year of course so i'm not sure what to expect.  Right now she's very clingy and a total momma's girl.  If anyone else holds her she cries so sitting on Santa's knee might set her off.......buuuuuut she did great and everyone........


SMILED! :D

 
I was one giddy happy excited momma that all my kids smiled in the same picture with Santa!  I couldn't have gotten a more perfect picture!
 
 
Love these 3 <3
 
 

... and her, I can't get enough of her!



7 Months Old

This little cutie is Seven Months Old today!

Having a girl is too much fun, way too much :)  My baby is getting so big so fast.  She sure loves her food.  I haven't found anything that she hasn't disliked yet.  She's not crawling yet but she gets in her hands and knees and slides backwards a bit.  I'm in no rush to have her crawl though... cause I know once she starts that's it, she's off!

Christmas Photoshoot

Today I took Christmas photos of my kids.  I dressed them up, set up a little Christmas background and took photos.  It went really well.  I'm so glad I've had a camera in my kids faces since birth lol.  They just know what to do when I have it out and pretty much 99% of the time I get the photos I dream of in my head.
 
Seriously, how handsome are these two?!
 

And how adorable is she?!






Love these 3 with all my heart!




6 Month Stats!

I still can't believe my baby girl is 6 months old...6 months 1 week to be exact!  She went for her 6 month shots today and did awesome!  She only cried for like 10 seconds, way better than the last 2 times.  She weighs 18 pounds and is 24 inches long.  She's my little shorty!  Ryan weighed 20 pounds and was 27 inches at 6 months....Alex was 19 pounds and 28 inches at 6 months.  It's kind of cool to look back and see the difference between her and the boys.
I'm so glad I kept up with the monthly pics, I love to see how much they've grown.  Since I'm with them all the time I don't notice the growth that much as some people who don't see her often.  Gosh she's grown and changed so much!
 
 

Christmas Wreath

Since making my fall wreath I decided I was going to make a Christmas wreath to.  I bought all the supplies I needed and ended up with this.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
 
 



Alex's First Swim Lesson!

I've wanted to get Alex is swimming lessons for a while....well since he turned 3 but it just never worked out.  I finally signed him up a month before the class started and then a few days before it started they called me and had to cancel it because nobody else signed up.  I was bummed.  I really wanted this for him.  I mentioned this to my neighbor and told her I wish more kids were signed up as there has to be at least 2 in the class for it to go forward.  She has a 4 year old daughter so I mentioned that she should sign her up and they could go together.  She thought it was a great idea so she signed her up.  Finally Alex and his friend Wendy would start there first swim lesson together!

They were so excited the day of the lesson and had a great time.  Alex wouldn't stop talking about when he could go again.


So excited to start soon! - So cute!
 

 
Seeing who is taller :)  Alex is 3 and Wendy is 4 - she is 8 months older
 


My girl is 6 MONTHS OLD!

How can it be that my daughter is already 6 month old?!  Time is just flying and it does so the more kids you have.  I'm trying to take in every second of her being young but it's just passing b so fast. 

Sera is such a great baby.  She's only waking up twice a night now (used to be 3 or more)  She smiles and giggles all the time.  She just adores her brothers and smiles when ever they walk in the room.  Same with daddy, big smiles when he comes home from work.  But she's a momma's girl....she wants me 95% of the time.  I'm cool with that but sometimes this momma needs a break!   Sometimes I just have to let someone else have her for a bit so I can have a bit of me time to regroup, eat, freshen up and whatever else. 

She rolled over about 5 times and started to do so at 4 months but hasn't since.  She's been sitting like a champ since 4.5 months.  She's trying to crawl but it's hard with laminate flooring as she just slides backwards and blankets just make worse.  Hubby thinks she's walk and pass the crawling stage...I guess we'll see.  She was very interested in what we've been eating lately so she's tried bananas, peaches, carrots and sweet potatoes.  I'd say peaches are her favorite.  She's ok with carrots but doesn't love them.  When she starts something she does it like she's been doing it for months.

I've taken monthly photos of all my kids but haven't done as many with Sera so for her 6 month photos I made sure to take them.  She was so awesome during it all.  I have to say doing this shoot was one of my favs, I've dreamt of doing pictures like this forever!
