Baby blue's and other things...

My baby will be 10 weeks old this week. It's so sad how quickly time is flying by. She is so beautiful and is such a joy! I honestly think that God placed her in our lives as a burst of joy and laughter straight from His arms at this stressful time in our lives. Our house has been on the market now for 8 months. We've had 3 contracts that have all fallen thru. Steve is still the interim pastor at church and is being challenged daily. We needed this sweet distraction in the midst of all of that!

Maci gives the cutest smiles now! They are totally intentional! We can't get enough of it! I will be totally surprised if these sweet baby blue eyes change. They are soooooooo blue!

My three little princesses

Here is my little bald Jasmine! Too cute! She is growing so fast and is changing daily! Last night she went 7 hours between feedings! It was so nice!
All three of my little princesses. Chloe staring as Belle, Maci as Jasmine, and Emma as Cinderella. Don't ya just love the "OHHHHHHHHHHHHH" that Maci is saying?

Sisterly love! If you knew the morning I had when this picture was taken, you would ask "How did you get them to hug and smile?" LOL It's great having dress up clothes, makes for easy and cheap costumes! I didn't have to buy any this year.
We are going to the mall to trick or treat...after eating our Chick-fil-a. Then we will come home and beg people to come to our door...which will only turn out to be about 5 kids.

Chloe's first hickey...

After Aunt TV was in charge for an hour, this is how I found Chloe. At first I was paniced that she was having an allergic reaction to something, then I realized what had happened. Square shape from the shape sorter, plus creative 3 yr old....this is what you get:

Annual trip to the Pumpkin patch

This was such a fun outing! Emma and Chloe had plenty to do and kept me on my toes. Emma is fearless...I couldn't look away for a minute...she was so quick to be gone, or up high on something!
Can you tell that she really didn't want to take this picture?
Emma looks so small compared to these HUGE pumpkins!
Here is Chloe with her girl friends up on top of a hay stack! So cute!
Here I am with all three of my girls! Maci looks like a baby doll with her bald head!
Emma, the worse place to stand around a horse is BEHIND it!
No Monkey business here! Chloe did a great job this year getting across. Last year she was not coordinated enough to even try this.
Here is Emma 10 ft up and fearless!
"RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Micky" as Chloe likes to say
Here is Emma with Olivia, one of her girl friends! Too cute!

What would we do without our girlfriends? Three of mine went with me that day and I must say that I am blessed to know these gals! God has surrounded me with great, godly women who challenge me to be a better wife, friend, and mother! Praise God!

Enjoying Fall

This is a picture of Maci next to Caroline. Maci is 3 weeks younger then Caroline. My friend, Erika and I were both invited to listen to a friends presentation about Arbonne and we both showed up with our girls dressed a like! Too cute! Had to take a picture of them!
After a nice long walk, Chloe and Emma wanted to play out back. They were both swinging and looking so big. I love the sheer joy of kids playing when they are really enjoying themselves. I have made a committment to myself to take them outside each day and I am glad for it. They need to breathe the fresh air and fun while it's still nice out there. Chloe was so good at finding me things in the backyard. I had her look for leaves in 4 different colors. The trees in these picture still look pretty green, but they are starting to change and fall.
Emma was jumping on the trampoline and the static was building. Her hair was so wild and was sticking out everywhere! Too cute!
I think that smile says it all! I am going to really hate it when we are all cooped up inside and can not go outside.

And this video makes me both proud and sad all at the same time. Proud that my 7 week old can roll over already, and sad that she did this so quickly. I don't think most babies her age are doing this yet. Slow down Maci...mommy can't take you growing so fast.

Busy week....

Wow, we had a BUSY week! Monday was Maci's 1 month appt....I blogged her latest stats in the previous blog. Tuesday we went to see Kung Fu Panda and ate Chick-fil-a, all for the low price of $8.00. The movie was only a $1 per person! This was the first movie that Emma has actually watched the screen! She made it about half way thru the movie before getting bored with it.
Tuesday we had a young couple come look at our house, and they liked it! YEA! They had their dad come back on Wednesday and he approved, so we were hopeful. Thursday morning we got word from our agent that we had an offer coming in! YEA! We accepted the offer, and now are awaiting the inspection. Please join us in praying that everything goes smoothly with this. By the end of next week, we should have answers on everything.
Steve played duck duck goose with the girls today...on the trampoline. They love playing that with him! Emma laughs so hard and so loud, it's so cute! I love it! There is something about a daddy being a daddy that is so sweet! The girls know that they are his world when they are playing on the trampoline.

This is the "noodle box" and Chloe and Emma love it. It's just full of noodles, and pasta. They can pour, shake, and scoop the pasta. The only rule is that it has to stay on the red. They both do pretty good, when playing alone with the box, sharing it is a whole different story!

And how could I not add a new picture of Maci? She probably thinks the camera is attached to me somehow. She has been a little stinker lately, waking up to eat every 2-3 hrs. I pray this is a growth spurt and not the norm as it's leaving me VERY tired. She is such a blessing to our family and God knew that we needed a burst of joy in the midst of the stress.
