Still Around!

It's been a LONG time since I have posted anything! But we're still here. So much has happened since that last post in February. Most notably, we are getting ready to have another baby! As in, she is due any time now!


The beginning was definitely the hardest of any of my pregnancies, so I kind of went into survival mode for a while. The last part of this pregnancy has actually been pretty good, thankfully! I am starting to get to point of really just wanting her to get here already. This body is tired!

I would really love to get back to posting more, but I won't try to make any promises considering we are adding a newborn within the next week. :) For now I will leave you with an updated pic of each of the kids.

Macy Turns 2!!!


Today is my sweet baby girl's second birthday. It hard to believe that that is even possible. What a joy she is to our family! In her two years she has taught me so much as a mother and I am sure that she will continue to challenge me for years to come. :) She is spunky, loving, stubborn and amazingly smart.

For her big day, I took her to get her first haircut. It was long overdue. I loved being able to put her hair in pigtails, but when it was down it looked too stringy and messy.




So I picked a fun hair salon for kids and we headed out to Sharkey's. They have a first haircut package that was great and included a haircut while sitting in a pink Barbie Jeep with suckers and her own tv to watch.




She did great, no fussing. Even though she refused to smile for the camera, she really did have a great time. And I think her hair turned out super cute!






When her hair was done it was time for her mini mani! She even got to pick out her own polish color...pink sparkles!



 

After dinner, we invited our neighbor friends over for some cake and ice cream. We are lucky that our kids have such good friends right across the cul de sac.







Overall I think she had a pretty terrific second birthday. My heart practically bursts with love for that girl!

Happy Birthday, Macy Jean!

Encore!

Yesterday was my birthday and, lucky me, it was also observation day at Chloe's ballet class. That was a little gift that I was so excited for! Here are two short videos of the class. The first is of the girls tap dancing to "Under the Sea" from The Little Mermaid. The second video is of the ballet portion. Unfortunately I wasn't ready when they started that part so it is pretty short. She loves it and it cracks me up how serious she is through the whole thing. I hope you enjoy!

Chloe loves her class so much she asks everyday if it is a ballet day. In fact, this morning she has already asked how many days until she gets to go back. I don't know how long she will enjoy these classes, but I am going to enjoy them while I can. She makes me such a proud momma!


Ballet!

Tiny Dancer


Tuesday little Chloe began ballet class. Actually, it is a ballet/tap combo class with a little tumbling thrown in for good measure. She was so excited to go! Of course she had to wear all the appropriate clothing and accessories. :)  When she looked in the mirror and saw her hair she exclaimed, "I have a hair in my bun!" She absolutely loved the class and is already asking when she gets to "ballet again". 



My sweet girl is growing up so fast, like they all are. She is such a joy to be around, very kind and caring and VERY independent. I am so proud of my tiny dancer.

(And yes, I listened to that song while I wrote this post.)  ;)

Another First...This Time for Chloe!


Today way Chloe's first day of preschool! My sweet girl has been begging to go to school like Colby since she was old enough to get the words out. Well, today was finally her day. She was so excited, and even picked out her outfit, shoes and hairstyle. Although she can sometimes be shy, she is very independent and was totally ready for this next step. I am so proud of her!
