1.Rhemidy has really grown up. She is beginning to listen a lot more and loves “cooking” meals for her family.
2. Hadiley is a handful. From teething and crying, to mischievous and climbing, to hilarious and smiling. She has us on our toes.
3. Baby #3. 16weeks, 2days. Cannot wait to find out if our family will gain another princess or our first prince. 🙂

All in a year

I cannot believe we are towards the end of February 2014. Last year honestly felt like it passed by in a blink of an eye. Today’s entry is a look back of last year. At the beginning of last year I made a list of things I wanted for 2013. Including meeting my beautiful girl Hadiley, traveling more, making more family memories, bake and cook more, and getting healthy. I am happy to say all of these things happened.

First Birthday

Well earlier this month, my sweet little baby turned a year old. Wow time sure has flown by. We celebrated with some close friends and family, who blessed us with new clothes and books and toys. Her party theme was cupcakes and tea party. She had a wonderful time, although she was glued to mom for most of it!

A year old, and miss Hadiley can…
Walk like a champ.
Say “Mama” “Dada” “Dat?” “Daa!” (dog)
She waves goodbye.
She signs “please.”
She gives high fives.
She claps.
She dances.
She climbs up AND down the stairs.
She climbs on EVERYTHING.
She gives Mom, Dad, and Sister sloppy, mouth open, tongue out, kisses on our noses. (strange girl. lol)
She has 8 teeth.
She eats EVERYTHING and has no food allergies! (Thank you God!)
and…
WE MADE IT TO A YEAR OF BREASTFEEDING.
The first two months of breastfeeding were definitely hard, as has the last 3 months, seeing that I am pregnant. but we made it and I am so proud. Now I am trying to wean, due to it being painful while being pregnant, but that isn’t going so well lol We will have one day where she only nurses once, and then we will have days she wants to nurse every 2 hours :/ But we will get there! 🙂

I’m still here!

I feel as if I haven’t updated in a year! (but really it has only been 2 months)

So much has been going on, with holidays, family in town, working on the house, and chasing around two crazy kids. Well Much exciting things to announce. So let’s get to it. 🙂

First: My sweet BABY Hadiley turned 1 this month. (yes, my BABY turned ONE!) Last year seemed to fly bye! (Although her first week of life spent in the NICU seemed to last f.o.r.e.v.e.r.)

At a year old, she walks (RUNS!) everywhere. She says Da (Dad), Mama, and Dat (asking, “What’s that?” as she points at everything). She wears 18 months clothes already and weighs 25 pounds. Her hair is now a light brown and her eyes are still a beautiful blue. She finally drinks out of a sippy, and has no allergies so far! (although she isn’t as obsessed with peanut butter as the rest of her family is…weirdo.) Her birthday also marked a YEAR or Breastfeeding! yay! I am very proud of myself for this!

In other news,

That’s right, we will be adding another arrow to our family in August 🙂 I am 14 weeks (yesterday) so hopefully we will find out what we are having in April! (although, this time around I was actually going to allow it to be a secret, but husband says no, he NEEDS to know lol) We are very excited, as is Rhemidy. Hoping Hadiley is as excepting of a little brother/sister as Rhemi was of her! 🙂

Well that is all for today, I have 4 crazy kids that are getting hungry for lunch!
