10 Month Letter

Oh my goodness little baby we are only 2 months away from your first birthday!! How is that even possible?!?! I swear you were just born and you were so tiny and now look at you. You are now off oxygen again and Im so thankful for that. No more RSV and no more hospital stays this month yay! There was one emergency you went through this month though. Daddy took all 4 of you kids out so mommy could get some laundry folded and there was a bit of an accident with you. You were in our baby swing on the play set and sister was pushing you. She went to run under you and the way she it the swing it tipped and even with being strapped in and had the plastic piece over you, you still managed to fall completely out and landed on the hard ground. We were so worried about your head. Daddy thought you landed right on your head. We watched you for quite a while and man you were so angry. You weren't just crying you were SCREAMING! We fed you some of your favorite treats and that still wasn't helping too much. Daddy made you a bottle and when you went to grab it you were screaming at the top of your lungs. I knew at that point you were in bad shape and needed to be seen. I went to change you and noticed you weren't using your left arm at all and it was just dangling to your side. We took you to an urgent care to get you checked out and get your arm xrayed and sure enough you had a crack in your bone right below your shoulder. Luckily it didn't break all the way through and there was still some of your bone intact. Where it was broke there is no way to cast it especially on an infant. Luckily infants bones heal at super speed. You didn't use your left arm for the next couple days but it didn't take long at all for you to get back to normal. You are now just under 22 pounds! So chunky!! I adore how chunky you are and I hope you stay this way for a long time!! You are loving trying big people food. You want to eat everything we do. You LOVE feeding yourself but thankfully you haven't got to the point where you wont let us feed you too. I know that day is coming though. You are so mobile. You know how to get where you want. Binee (Remember that's what Kamdyn calls you) you are such a joy! You are SO funny! You are SO adorable and I love every little piece of you! I am so thankful Im your mom!! Happy 10 months of being in this crazy family! Time to start planning your 1st birthday party!!!
Love, Mommy

Brynlees 9 Month Pictures

Since Brynlee was on oxygen when she turned 9 months then broke her arm we had to put off her pictures for a couple weeks but finally were able to do them and they were so worth the wait!! As usual she did amazing and took the cutest pics ever!! I must brag for a minute but I have seriously been SO lucky with my kids when it comes to pictures! They take the best pictures and always do the pose we want right in cue! When we took the youngest 3 back in January the people at Foto Fly said how amazing they were. Only a good shoot when everyone is cooperating they usually get 50-80 good pics for the cd. Well with doing all 2 we got almost 200 that were good enough for the cd!!!! That said that amazing for just 1 kid let alone 3!!! Anyways back to Brynlee.  Kamrin has been on a mission to think of unique things to do from now on for our photo shoots so for Brynlee he decided we needed a fun way to should off her chunky body. He got a huge cookie and 2 chocolate bars and we stripped her down and let her have at them. It was so cute! Last minute he rushed her an empty can of Mt Dew to make it look like she was washing down her treats. He was so proud of himself. What a goof ball. Here are some of my favorites!


We had a great Easter this year. We of course started with the kids checking out what the bunny left them and finding all the eggs of money and candy he hid around the house for them. Other then that we had a nice relaxing morning. We went to church then rushed home to get ready to go to my grandmas for dinner and an egg hunt for the kids. It was so fun being with loved ones. The weather was great so we stayed outside most of the time. My kids looked so cute in their Easter clothes!! 
Waiting to go see what the bunny brought them

This is the best I got after MANY attempts of getting a picture of them all looking at the camera
