Family Update!!

Well it feels like it has been forever since I have blogged, so I figured I should do an update and catch up on what we have been up to the last couple of months. Nothing too exciting but it seems like my kids are changing everyday so I have to write the silly little things down so I will always remember them. For example the other day we decided to go out to dinner. As we talked about where we might want to go Haylee chimed in and told us that she wanted to go to Eatza Pizza. Well this was all great except that both Seth and I wanted chinese food. Well we tried to convince Haylee that Chinese was better but she wouldnt have it. She knew what she wanted. Finally she said to us "thats fine you guys go get chinese but I am staying here, I am going to eatza pizza." We both were a little stunned that our 3 year old daughter had just said this. I looked at Seth and told him, "She is all yours when she is 16." I look forward to those days with mixed emotions. Sometimes I have to remind myself that she is only 3.

The other day I was trying to snap some pictures of them again since I hadn't gotten any good ones of the two of them and I actually think I got some good ones. But as I was taking them I got this one and I think it shows just a little bit of Haylees cute personality.

She and Kyle have really become good friends. I know that they will probably not always be the best of friends as they grow and fight, but a Mother can wish can't she. Kyle just loves his big sister, every time she comes around he lights up. She can always get him to smile or laugh and if he starts to cry and I am not around she tries to talk to him or find him a toy to play with and it just makes me smile. So I was able to get a couple of pretty good shots of them and these are some that I was pretty proud of.

Haylee is a good little Mommy and though she has her moments, sometimes I think it would be harder to have Kyle without Haylee. She is always willing to help. She is also really into making herself pretty. She loves to play dress up and is always getting into my makeup and putting it on when I put mine on. She sometimes can't go out unless she has made herself pretty. So she goes and puts on like 4 bracelets, 6 rings, and 5 necklaces then she insists on whering her black sunday shoes so she can be fancy. I just go with it, even though sometimes what she thinks is fancy is blue pants and a red shirt, I just say you know if anyone has a three year old girl they will totally understand and I don't fight it. She also is always asking me to do her hair like Cinderella, so I just put it up into a bun and that seems to work. She is a lot of fun.

And even though she is so girly and love to dress up. Seth and I both think she is going to totally be an athlete. She doesn't mind going out and playing in the dirt and getting good and dirty and she can throw a ball really well for a 3 year old. She wants to play soccer this summer so we are going to look into that, she also wants to do ballet though so I am not sure what to do. We will have to make a deal because I don't think she can do both. I guess its good because she is well rounded. But thats Haylee, she just loves everything.

Kyle is now 6 months old!! I can't believe that my little baby is growing up so fast. Sometimes I think this is the best time because he is very sociall and loves to talk and laugh and play but he isn't mobile yet. The whole game changes a little when they are able to get around. I am also dreading trying to baby proof my house. I look around and see so many things that I am going to have to change when he starts to get around. He is a pretty good baby and I count my lucky stars that I have had two pretty easy kids so far (knock on wood.)

He is the happiest baby also he is usually smiling or laughing at us and we love it. It just brings so much joy to your life, if I am having a bad day all I have to do is talk to Kyle and he chears me right up. He is also very snuggly. I think that he snuggles a lot more than Haylee did at this age and I love that too.We have started giving him a little rice cereal and he loves that stuff. He is going to be a pretty healthy eater. I think you can tell that by his weight. Also he finally started to roll around. He used to be able to roll onto his back but now he sometimes rolls across the room. I guess it wont be too long until he is mobile.

Well that is pretty much it for now. Nothing too exciting but we love it anyway. I love these two kids more than I can say and am thankful everyday for them. I can't believe that I was lucky enough to get to be there Mother. I love having a little family of my own and I love being a Mother.
