Amelia's first surgery!

So, Matt and I's anatomy must be awful, b/c all of our kids have had either a procedure (tubes) or surgery (tonsil/adenoidectomy)! Elijah has tubes and the girls had the surgery. Dr. Shotts (our ENT) is seriously banking off of us! :). He's a great doctor and we completely trust him... Obviously! :)

Amelia was our latest victim to having a tonsil and adenoidectomy! Poor, sweet girl didn't know what hit her! I always hate that first hour after surgery when they're coming off drugs! They're so out of sorts and not themselves. :(. It's heart-wrenching! I'm so glad that parts over and we're onto recovery at home!

I love my sweet girl and hope that she will find some comfort once she heals! :)

Eli is 15 months old!

I know I say this every time, but where in the world does the time go!? So cliche', but so true! And, to think, my last posts' were only a month apart and it's been 4 months since I posted last about him! He actually turns 16 months on the 11th, so I'm a tad late on this post! Par for the course for me lately!

He's doing so much lately and has become ALL boy! Obsessed with balls , cars and trucks and becoming quite the little dare-devil. He will literally walk off any height and make you have a heart-attack!

He had his first dentist appointment b/c he chipped one of his front teeth! Doing none-other than... Carrying a big boy basketball, tripping and hitting our concrete stair out front.

He's also talking quite a bit and turning into a Daddy's boy! /). :/. ;(.

He's everywhere, trying to be big like his sisters and adding a whole new dynamic to this Momma's world! I'm loving every minute! Mostly! :). Haha!

Happy Thursday and Many Blessings!!

Amelia is THREE!

A little late..  :)

And, with a blink of an eye, I now have a three year old!!  I'm not quite sure how this happened!  It seems she's much older than three though!  I have to catch myself , because she doesn't act like a normal three year old...  more like a sixteen year old! :)  haha!

She's my little short stack and falls in the 15th percentile for height and 75th percentile in weight!  :)  (I'm a slacker and forgot to have the nurse write down her numbers...)  So, she's wearing clothes ranging from 2T all the way to 4T! 

One of three birthday celebrations she had.  
Club Tabby with the twins for their third birthday's too.

Having fun at Sigs at a playdate.

At her three year check-up!  First time with a cover-up!  :)

Another party.  She had a ball!  :)

When did she get this big!?

Disney on Ice!  
She and Cydni have been getting along so well lately.  Yes, they have their moments, but the sweet moments far outweigh the bickering moments...  It's just so awesome to see their relationship/friendship grow and I'm so thankful we decided to have our kids this close in age, so they will always have that closeness.  Yes, I know, high school will be a different story, but I'm loving it right now!

Such a spirited little girl!

I love you sweet girl!  I wish I could bottle up your energy and zest for life!  I'm so thankful that God chose me to be your mommy!  Please stop growing...  I really hope that when you're a teenager, that you will still think I'm, 'the best mom ever' and that you'll always surprise me with your 'i love you's' and kisses out of nowhere.  :)

Happy Fall Yal'll!  :)

Month in pictures!

I'm in such a blogging slump and I can't seem to get out of it!  I know I'm going to be  so mad at myself down the road, but I just can't talk myself into doing it!  Such is life..  I'm pretty sure I say something to this extent in every post now.  Sorry!

Onto our month!

Date night to Wicked!  Matt surprised me with balcony seats!  So awesome!  The seats and the show!

She is such a spirited little girl.

My uncle was 'pulling' at the Lanesville Heritage Tractor Pull and Cyd jumped at the chance to sit on the tractor!  She loved it!

Cyd's first day of school.  They love each other so much.  They've been getting along so well lately!

Having fun with Amelia's glasses.  :)

Navilleton Pumpkin Festival

These pictures never get old!  He will watch him for the longest time.

My little thrill-seekers at Lanesville Heritage.

French Bistro, Le-Coop, in NuLu the night of Wicked.

I found a ton of Lincoln Logs at a consignment sale and the girls have been loving them!

The twins turned three at the beginning of the month, so we took them all to Club Tabby for a day of pampering.  :)  They had a blast!

Lots of walks/bike-riding trying to soak up these fall days!

My brothers Labor Day weekend festivities.

When did he get so big!?!?

Happy Sunday!

Florida Photo Shoot

Way back in June, we went to Florida...  I think I posted about it, but I'm just getting around to posting some pictures from our little photo shoot!  :)

It was the night from h.e.l.l. regarding dinner, but we ended up getting some good shots after all of the chaos!

Happy Wednesday!

Holiday World

Pretty sure I get worst blogger of the year!  Poor Elijah is getting about half the blog time that the girls received when they were babies.  I'm fairly certain that with each kid, blogging has decreased!  haha.  Sorry kiddo's!  :)

Anyways, one of our summer adventures was taking the girls to Holiday World!  It was a blast and I'm so thankful that Matt and I got some one on one time with the girls!  Jerry and Kasie kept Eli for us, so we were non-stop all day long!  :)  We missed out little dude, but otherwise, it was such a perfect day!

I hope all is well! 

Much Love!
