This & That

The past couple weeks have been full! We've got one crawling and pulling up, one potty training, one who just started Kindergarten and 2 that take care of kids all might can figure out who's who. And we thank God for all of it.

Baby girl is growing up too fast!

K4 graduation

1st day of K...some of us weren't paying attention b/c we were trying not to cry!

I was told to update my pics by someone who will remain nameless. Over the past month, we had a great trip to WV full of fun and yummy meals from Big Daddy & Special K. And we finally got some pictures of the 5 of us thanks to Special K. Blaire is now 8 months old...she's crawling, pulling up and getting into trouble already! McAlister likes to wrestle both his sisters. Abby's about to start Kindergarten and got her new big girl haircut. We are all ready for cooler weather!! Enjoying seeing my kids grow and learn new things, but I'd like them to slow down and stay little longer....that's us in a nutshell.

7 months young...

Blaire is almost 7 months old and changing way too fast! She's getting her first bottom teeth and trying to crawl. In the meantime she does some great yoga poses instead of moving anywhere.

See my 2 teeth!!

OD of floral here, but so cute!

That's some good downward dog!

This is a great one...typical Macallywacky!

Just us girls!

Beachin' it

We had a great time at Edisto with my parents this past week. The kids really loved it and we loved watching them explore the shore! We only make it to the beach once a year. Abby loved it so much that she cried when it was time to go. Blaire still naps too much to appreciate the beach and the ocean breeze, but she did enjoy her 1st time in the pool. McAlister loved finding shells and digging in the sand. I have always loved beach trips because it's always such a huge reminder of how small I am and how big my God is. The water, the sunsets, the sea amazing (except for the jellyfish b/c I do not love them!).

Mother's Day

I must admit that I thought Mother's Day would be different. I think we glam up Hallmark holidays and have high expectations. The reality was that it was just like any other day. When I stop to think about it, I wouldn't want it any other way. Even though I no longer sleep in, don't have leisurely quiet meals, don't get to use the bathroom alone...I really wouldn't want it any other way...well maybe I'd go for sleeping past 6am ;)!!! It was a happy mother's day because I have 3 kiddos who call me Mommy...and that's the best sound in all the world. I know there are many people who miss their moms and so many who long to be mothers. I am grateful to have my mom 5 minutes down the road and have 3 healthy, happy kiddos as my alarm clock!

The adorable 3 that call me Mommy!

Can't believe she's already 5 months old!


A cute pic of all three or wrestlemania?

Future doc like Daddy??

4 months old!

Such a big girl now! She's enjoying her exersaucer, she found her feet, she's rolling over a little...and sleeping 11 hours at night now and then. She's growing up so fast! The other two are enjoying the spring weather and the new springing they get to do on our trampoline!!

5 Years of Mommyhood!

I've been a mommy for 5 years now! What a huge blessing children are. I definitely thank God for using Abby to teach me so much about myself actually. We love her so much! I hope the next 5 years are even more fun as we try to help her grow up to love God and others.
