I figured, I should post the words my 11month old tries to say these days. I need to post, since this seems to be the only place I can keep record of such things... I hope the Internet doesn't fade out anytime soon! Sounds like a funny statement, but when I was my child's age we had no idea what a floppy disk or a cd player was! Now... Those items my kids have no clue about...

Anyway.... Onto my subject... Words, Joshua tries to say:

"nana" means banana or any food
"up" means cup or drink
"dug" means duck
"da" means dog
"nigh" means nigh-night
"eye" means hi
And of course we have "mama"and "dada"

proud momma…

Here are some more pictures of Alexis and her latest performance…. I had to throw in a picture of my boys too, because I am so proud of all my kiddos!IMG_9069IMG_9076IMG_9081IMG_9072IMG_9080IMG_9098

Baby’s First Haircut

more swim lessons




and then the camera battery died…

On the final day of swim lessons as we were getting ready, Jeremiah wouldn’t stop chanting “It’s slide day, It’s slide day” I wasn’t sure if he really knew what he was talking about… he did! They got to go down the slide.


He went a couple of times, Alexis only went once. Here is what they had to say about it…

Alexis: “That was really amazing!”

Jeremiah: "Did you see me mommy? That was so fun, I need to do it again and again some more!!"

Swim and Ice Cream Party

We invited all the 3-5 year olds over for an ice cream party by the pool… I think my little man enjoyed it the most!DSC00990DSC00986DSC01004DSC01009DSC01018DSC01019DSC01020



(I need to do some crop work on these to make them better, but didn’t… just wanted to get them shown)

Pity Party

I feel like throwing myself a pity party today. My baby is 11months old today. This means I only have one month until my last baby has his first birthday! So many "firsts" have already happened. No more first tooth, no more first word, no more first laugh... Sniff sniff.

I know there are still so many firsts to come, with all three of my children. But it is a very bitter-sweet realization.

Time passes and there is nothing this mommy can do. Some day soon, I will just be "mom." I won't have room on my lap to fit all three kids, I won't be able to carry my little ones to their rooms at bedtime, they will be embarrassed of my hugs and kisses, child laughter will no longer echo through my house, 4am I will sleep through instead of being woken up from little arms cuddling up to me.

Yes... I have tears rolling down my face.

I look forward to our future but I will miss so much of this wonderful time I have with "my babies." Years of infertility, brought so much sadness... I am so grateful for these precious gifts I have received!! I need to remember that the nuisances of today.... Will be missed someday.

So, mommies... take everyday as it comes and hold on tight to the gift we are given! We have not only been given a great responsibility but an even greater opportunity to watch our children grow!

A 4 year Old Soap Opera

I listened to the kids playing and started typing what they were saying...


Buzz Jr.: Dad, I think she wants to marry Flynn Ryder

Buzz: Oh that’s it, I am going to kill him!

(shooting sounds and voice activation button pushed saying “No back talk. I have a laser and I will use it”)

Belle jr: Hey,  what did you do dad?

Buzz: I killed him.

Belle: You killed who?

Buzz: Eugene

Belle jr: Oh dad, she wanted to marry him!

Buzz: I can’t take this anymore, I am going back to my planet!

Buzz jr: I am going with you dad. Come on sister.

They all take off and fly to the other planet

(by the window)

Buzz: we are here and we are all going to get married now, who are we going to marry?

Belle: I will marry Flynn Ryder, Buzz lighter year you can marry Cinderella.

Buzz: how about she just be my neighbor and she can marry Dude forever

Belle: ok, who are you going to marry?

Buzz: no one, I am the dad and a Space Ranger. NO one can kill me!

Belle: Well, you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit

The saga continues…. I just can’t keep up with it!

Very Strange! Yes,Very Strange, Indeed!

Jeremiah: “Mommy, I tried to get it but I can’t”

Mommy: “You tired to get what?”

Jeremiah: “my shoe”

Mommy: “where is it?”

Jeremiah: “Uhhh, it’s in the fan. AND I don’t know how it got there.”


Strange place for a shoe… yes, but these are pretty strange kids, just see for yourself…





My friend of triplets and I found a new indoor play land. It is a little expensive but worth it, since after three hours of play we leave with a smile and not frustration!

Just a couple of pictures…
