Magna Moms At The Zoo

With it being UEA weekend one of the moms I became friends with suggested we do a day at the zoo and I jumped all over it! I decided to have my mother in law watch Brynlee so I could just focus on the oldest 3 and have a good time chatting with the moms. So 4 moms and 9 kids and the zoo made for a fun and crazy day!! After walking for a while we found this little corner with some tables and sat down to snack and let us mom just sit and talk for a while. It was seriously so much fun!! These women are so awesome and so much fun to be with!!!

My Nieces

I watched Kamrins sisters' babies again and decided to have a little fun and dress them in tutus and wings and take some cute pictures of them. They turned out SO cute!!

Trying Cereal

We got the okay to start you on baby cereal at your 4 month check up. At first she screamed cause she was so hungry and didnt understand that it was food but after a few ounces we tried the food again and she loved every bite. She has loved it ever since.

4 Month Letter

Dear Brynlee,
Oh how I love you my chunky monkey!! You get chubbier by the day and I LOVE it!! Your rolls have rolls now :-) This last month has been great. You still sleep most of the time but the last few days you are spending more time awake and checking this world out during the day. You still sleep through the night which helps mommy so much! You smile so much!! You have let out a giggle a few times and its adorable!! You still hate tummy time! You love the bumbo! You are aware of your toys now and even try and grab them. We just started you on baby cereal. We learned that trying it for the very first time when you are hungry was not the best idea. You screamed!! Once we fed you a little and then tried the cereal again you loved it and have loved it ever since. Your little tongue goes crazy! You still hate the car so much! Hope that passes soon since we spend so much time in the car while the kids are in school. You are now completely in 3-6 month clothes. Your feet are still really small and still wear 0s and even some of those are too big. Mommy was desperate when you were a baby and the only place you would sleep for more then 10 minutes was in your swing so I allowed it. Well here we are 4 months later and at night you still sleep in the swing. I tried a couple days ago to put you in your bed. You started great. Around midnight you realized you werent moving and well the rest of the night was awful. So I decided to keep you in the swing at night and for now we are working on getting you to sleep in your bed at nap time and once have you mastered that Ill work on night again. We all adore you little Ms Brynlee!! You are the perfect little caboose to our family!! Even Kamdyn just loves you to pieces now. He is always so concerned when youre upset and always wants to give you things and hold you. I love you so much princess!!

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Day

Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. I myself have had multiple miscarriages and it is truly devastating no matter how far along you are. For women the second you get that positive test you are that babys mom so to lose it is so painful. Despite my loses I have been blessed with 4 amazing babies! Today my heart goes out to all those who have lost a baby whether it was before or after they were born! Its a lose no parent should have to go through! You are all in my thoughts and prayers today!! To all the babies who are now in heaven may your beautiful spirits be with your parents to comfort them today!! You are so loved and so missed!!!

Happy 80th Birthday Grandma

Today is my grandmas 80th birthday!! Yesterday we had a great party in her honor. We had it out at my sisters clubhouse and that was the perfect place for our big family. We were able to be in the same room yet werent crammed. We had 6-7 soups, salads and rolls. Great food and great company!! I sure love my grandma!! Happy 80th Grandma!!!

Family Of 6

We went out to my sisters clubhouse for my grandmas birthday party and I wanted to try to get a family picture of all 6 of us since we have yet to get one. since we became a family of 6. We did pretty well except Kamdyn. That kid is non stop and trying to get him to sit still and look at a camera is impossible. This is what we got :-)
