Project 365 - Day 26

Can you believe it?! My baby girl is 6 months old already! 6 months ago today, we were in the hospital having her! It really doesn't seem like it was that long ago. My baby girl is already hurrying up to get big, and I'm not ready yet! As a special 6 month treat (and because I couldn't decide) I'm posting a few pictures of her taking some big girl steps last night.

Trying out the high chair, first time ever. She looks so big and so happy sitting here!

Then, she tried a big girl sippy with apple juice! She loved it!

She really really loved it!!

I guess she got really hungry, because she started eating her bib. Although, I had already fed her baby food and Puffs. She's so silly!

Project 365 - Day 25

Last night, while I was cooking dinner, I sent the 3 big ones outside to play. Told the girls to keep an eye on Jake (even though I checked on him every 2 mins, I think). Big sister Abby is so smart and had a great idea to keep Emma and Jake entertained. And she didn't mind pulling them around, in fact, she loved it!

Project 365 - Day 24

Where has all the time gone?! I forgot to get up yesterday's pic. Instead, the kids and I had a fun day together, then relaxed and watched a movie last night. Even though daddy's been busy in the field, we've been trying to have fun.

Speaking of fun, the kids really know how to get creative and have fun. The girls made Jake a "bed" in their room. Him and his baby loved it! Mind you, this bed is their toy box, with their rug on top of the toys, covering them up. I don't know how this could be comfy, but he seemed to love it. Abby wanted him to sleep in their room like that every night. That got a big VETO.

Project 365 - Day 23

This boy is really too much sometimes! I was taking pics of the amazing feat of getting 4 kids in a standard bathtub. I was snapping Catey in her baby seat, when all the kids decided they wanted candids. Look what this boy does when I snap a pic of him. What a goof ball!

Project 365 - Day 22

Who can resist a cute little baby?! Not me. Who can resist a cute little baby sucking her thumb?! Not me! Even though I hate that she sucks her thumb, it's still the cutest darn thing I've seen! As her shirt says "Perfect In Every Way!" But I'm bias!

Project 365 - Day 21

I'm such a proud momma! I posted earlier in the month about Abby donating her hair to Locks of Love. Yesterday, she was finally in our local paper (it only comes out weekly). Here's our local celebrity, Abby, with her pony tail that she gave to the "sick kids." She's such a sweetie!!

Project 365 - Day 20

Here's the pic of the day. Jacob loves running around like this, terrorizing his sisters. The more they scream and run, the more he laughs and chases. And I'm laughing so hard at them all, I can't save them!

*Only one side of that is plastic, the rest is mesh, so he can't suffocate. Also, he's always supervised with that on his head. If you can imagine, he's a huge klutz like that!

Project 365 - Day 19

I'm sorry I didn't get this one up yesterday. I was super busy and all over the place. It's been kinda nuts at our house lately. Luckily, even though things have been crazy for me, my kids all know how to relax on a hot day. Sorry Abby is topless, I can't get that girl to keep a shirt on to save my life!

Project 365 - Day 18

We have been super busy running around and having fun today. I didn't think I was even going to get a new picture for today, until I saw the cutest thing while we were out playing. We got invited to go swimming with our friends, but it started to rain on our parade. While we were waiting to get back into the pool, the girls decided to sit together and be best buddies! They just love playing with each other! Sorry for the poor quality, I took this with my phone!

Project 365 - Day 17

First off, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dad's out there! I hope each and everyone of you have a great day! As a Father's Day treat, I'm going to share 2 pictures today. One for Father's Day and a cute one... we'll their both cute. But you know what I mean.

Daddy and his baby girl on Father's Day. How cute are they!!

Then, yesterday, Nate set up the pool for the kids. The girls went out and played in it today. They had a blast, and it was too cute not to share!

Project 365 - Day 16

I'm sorry I'm putting up a pic from the other day. We were super busy today, shopping, cooking Father's Day goodies, dinner, etc. So here's Emma sliding at the park. What's even better is I have the action progression of this. But I'll spare you and just give you a bright, smiling Emma!

Project 365 - Day 15

Catey was cracking me up last night. I gave her a "Biter Biscuit" (baby cookie) to try last night, then got out the camera to snap pics of her eating it. As soon as she saw the camera, she threw down the biscuit. Every single time I pressed the button and the little orange light came on, she'd "RaWr" a me and make funny faces. I got 3 or 4 pics of her doing that, me laughing the entire time. But this one was by far the funniest!!! What a silly baby!

Project 365 - Day 14

It was a hot, muggy day, so what better way to spend it than at the park. Jake was being such a ham running around and climbing on the toys. You can tell the poor boy is so hot, but he was having a blast!

Project 365 - Day 13

Today was the first day of swimming lessons for Abby. She loves it! A bit afraid to try out the diving boards just yet, but I'm sure by the time she's done she'll take the plunge! I love this action shot of her having fun in the pool!

Project 365 - Day 12

You got to love sisters! Especially sisters as sweet as my girls!

Project 365 - Day 11

How can you say "No" to a face like this!? I mean really, how can you! She's too sweet. I had her on the floor rolling around, taking pics of her, and she was loving every minute of it!

Project 365 - Day 10

Can't you just feel the orneriness oozing from this picture?! I mean, it's so bad, it's almost scary to look at. What's worse, is that is possibly looking into the future for Em. EEK! lol Just kidding, I love you Kel!

Locks of Love

I have no clue why I didn't post this sooner, it totally escaped my brain. But I guess it's better late than never. Almost 2 weeks ago (2 weeks on Wed.) I took Abby with me to my hair cut. As most of you know, she had super long hair and had been growing it out for a while. Her goal was to donate it to Locks of Love, which she finally accomplished the minimum 10 inches here recently. She was more than ready to get rid of it. Here's her before pics..

It was pretty long! She was so proud to go and get her hair cut and "give it to the sick kids." She's such a sweetheart! Look at all that hair gone! It's going to be short!!!

After she got it all cut off, she loved it! She wants to keep it this short from now on. Not in her face, not making her hot, short like mommy's, she's in love. Of course, she also loves all the compliments she gets on the new do! Here's the after!

And don't fear, this is not my 365 post for the day. I'll have something for that later on.

Another 3-fer today! Egads... the couch is sucking them in!!!!

Project 365 - Day 8

My kids are all pretty sweet. They're always giving me hugs and kisses and all. What's amazing is when their being sweet and nice to each other. And it's not even forced! They really do love each other!

Project 365 - Day 7

Big brother absolutely loves his baby sister. He's recently learned how to say "Baby" and he's so proud. Poor girl has to constantly deal with her brother in her face saying "Baby, Baby, Baby." But it doesn't look like she minds too much!

Project 365 - Day 6

All I keep thinking here is "Whip it... Into shape.... Shape it up... Get straight..." If you don't know what I'm talking about, look here. lol

Oh and yes, his chin is blue. He got done having a blue raspberry slushy! lol

Project 365 - Day 4

My big girls were being silly at lunch time. "I Am the Walrus"?!

*On a side note, why is it one day you are trying to get a cute shot and others you get like 3 and can't decide which to share! lol

Project 365 - Day 3

Poor little Catey bug, tired herself out playing and rolling on the floor. Of course, I added the cover. But how cute is that!!

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Project 365 - Day 2

Today was a pretty unexciting day, which is a good thing when momma isn't feeling well. So I decided to catch my 2nd daughter, Emma, in all her ornery form! Don't let the cute smile and curls fool you, she's really quite the deviant!

Project 365

I had heard about this a while back and forgot about it, but I've wanted to do it since I heard of it. A friend of mine just started doing this with her kids. I thought it was a super cute idea, so I'm borrowing it from her. And hopefully I can remember to keep it up!

For those that don't know, Project 365 is where you take and post a new picture everyday. Mine, of course, will be of my family!

To start off this project, my first picture is of my son. He's such a daredevil and always trying to climb up everything. Today was no exception. He figured out how to climb into the baby swing and swing himself. And then ham it up when I brought out the camera. To bad I didn't get a picture after this, because his sisters decided to make him their baby. Now to keep him out of the swing!
