updates on the fam

ok, so its been like a year since i have updated this thing, and i'm sure its just been tearing everyone up inside. ya, i know i have that affect. anyways, this is going to be the longest post ever, so get comfy and grab a snack, if you choose to stick around to read it all. here are some of the things that have been going on 'round here.....
aiden started crawling at 6 1/2 months and 2 days after he started crawling, he decided to pull himself up on to everything and try and stand on his own. he especially likes to do this in the tub, silly boy! every chance he gets, he is climbing as fast as he can up the stairs and thinks it is hilarious when i come running after him. oh, he is just to cute to get mad at! he just cut his top 2 teeth yesterday, so he has 4 teeth now! if everyones babies acted the way he does when they are teething, they would have like 10!! he is still sooooo happy and doesnt cry, and has been sleeping even better than usual (it might have something to do with us not going anywhere, so he is totally on his schedule!) i really couldnt tell he was teething except for the gallon of drool that came out his mouth! :) we have stopped feeding him any baby food. he seriuosly spit up EVERYTHING he ate when we fed him the baby food, and whenever i fed him some of our food, it all stayed down! sooo, he is just a big boy now and eats the same food as us and loves to feed himself! he is such a good boy!!!!
adyson is a totally different story..... that girl is a hot mess!!! she has too many meltdowns in one day to count, but she is hilarious and has the oddest personality!!! she really is a lot if fun, when she is in a good mood! we have been potty training on and off for a few months. just when i think she is getting the hang of it, she pees everywhere!!! if funny because some days she will wear underwear all day and not have any accidents and actually go potty all by herself without even telling me, and some days........ i dont even want to talk about it! oh well, it will happen one day! she loves her brother and sister and loves to do anything rylee is doing!
Rylee is growing up sooo quick!! her first year of preschool ended last week! YAY! actually, i am kinda sad because i dont know when i am going to get errands done now! she is becoming quite the little helper around the house! she will do almost anything i ask her to, most of the time :) she has learned how to load and unload the dishwasher, she takes out the kitchen garbage, always does a great job at cleaning up the toys (sometime with a little threatening:)), loves to help with aiden and addy. ok, dont think i am making her my little slave, she asks me everyday if she can help with the dishes and take out the trash and change aidens diapers and take addy potty, so i have been giving in and letting her help!she acts so grown up!! she is such a good swimmer!!!!! seriously. as soon as she's old enough i am gonna put her on a swim team, if she wants to. that girl is a fish.
ok, so here are pics from the past couple months. they are not in order, and i am not going try to put them in order, so deal. here we go......

just a cutie pie picture of the girls from easter.

the "hot mess" . eeeewwww. she is gross. this little ensemble was picked out all on her own. i just took the picture of it.

mike and i got to go to new orleans for 4 dyas w/out the kids. ah yeah! this is the st. louis cathedral. its the oldest church in america.
rylee and i went on a little date and went to go see a movie. she got scared half way through and wanted to go home.

i just love that little face

this is the first time he stood up in his crib, that i know of :)

my little man havin some fun in the pool. he loves to ride on the alligator

me and the hubby riding the street car in new orleans

this is at the Oak Alley Plantation. it is seriously gorgeous there!

in the car on the way to the plantations. we got a little tired of smelling vomit and garbage and seeing nasty, trashy drunk people everywhere we looked in French Quarter, so we rented a car and drove about an hour to see the most awesome plantations! it was really fun!

just stuff....


this is one of the beanies, car!


here is the other one. i am not sure about the brim. if you dont like it i can do a different one, or a different color. let me know and i wont be hurt if want a different one, they dont take very long to do.

here he is in his big boy chair!!! i love that boy!

he wants to crawl sooo bad!


look at that face!!! oh i could just kiss it all day! sometimes i do!

Aiden is 6 months old!!!! holy crap, how did that happen??? he is such a big boy now! these are some things he is doing now (so i dont forget)
-eating 2nd foods and loving them and trying to eat anything else he can gets his little grabby fingers on!
-he is sitting in a booster chair (like the girls sit in) because he totally twisted his way out of the bumbo chair!
-still spitting up a lot! that is his only flaw.... i guess he has to have one, right?
-is wearing 6-12 month clothes
-does not use a binky!!! sometimes he will suck on his fingers but only when he goes to sleep
-doesnt have to nurse to go to sleep!!!! i love it! he his so easy going! he will just lay down and go to sleep if i dont have time to nurse him (which is a lot!). makes it easy for date nights!
-drinking from a sippy cup
-sitting up
-spins in circles on his tummy like nobody's business
-is getting very close to crawling (gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth) he is trying SOOO hard! he just wants to get up and go with his sisters!
-finally started sleeping through the night about 2 weeks ago!!! YAY!!! he takes 2 long naps during the day (when we are home) and then wants to be in bed at least by 7! and then he usually sleeps until 7 with the occasional 5am wakeup!
-he is THE happiest baby! as long as he isnt hungry or tired he will just sit anywhere and laugh and smile at anything and anyone! he loves to be talked to and LOVES it when his sisters "bug" him (like sit on him or roll around on the floor with him, ya know..)
-is so sweet and loves to cuddle and of course be held.
-is ocassionally going pee and poop on the toilet!!! i am kind of trying this different kind of potty training. he is actually doing really good!
-LOVES his mommy!! what can i say?!? if i walk out of the room he usually lets me know that he is not ok with it!
-LOVES the hot tub! and swimming... it a good thing cause we are going to live in the pool this summer!

we love our "aiden boy"!!!

the big 5!

we had our 5 yr anniversary on Feb. 27!!! i cant believe it has already been 5 years! mike sent me flowers, which was a really fun surprise, and he tried surprising me with a massage at Massage Envy, but it didnt work out as planned. he told me that i was going to get a call at 3:30 and to make sure that answered the phone. so my mom shows up to watch the kids and i dont get a call. it was after 4:00 when i finally got a hold of mike to find out what was going on. Massage Envy was supposed to call at 3:30 and tell me that i had an appt. at 4:00. so anyways, it got all worked out and i got my massage!!:) i have to give him props for trying though! when i got home we sent the girls with my mom for a sleepover and dropped aiden off at a friends house and went to Noras for dinner. it was soooo yummy! we really wanted to go stay somewhere, but it just didnt work out. we'll go soon to make up for it though!
anyways, thanks for the great 5 years, mike!! love you!

Aiden's Blessing


4 generation picture. aiden ,mike, mike's dad, mike's grandpa





mike blessed aiden on november 30, 2008. he did a wonderful job as always. i was starting to get very stressed over this event, so i just decided to make it easy and we had a really small luncheon after the blessing with just family. it was very relaxed and very nice to be able to enjoy it.

random pics

we took the kids the airplane show and they loved it. it was very sunny so rylee had to steal my sunglasses to see the airplanes.


this is aiden at 2 months. he is so perfect!

so i decided to chop off rylee's hair one morning before preschool. here she is with her ponytail!

this is what you get when your child cant walk without falling. looking a little asian, are we?? her eye was so swollen.... it was quite funny to look at.

halloween.....finally!

ok i know it has been forever, and yeah we are busy, but COME ON!! get it together woman and make a post already! so here is halloween 2008. as you can see rylee and addy are both princesses.... can you tell they have makeup on?? ya, they really like to help do makeup! not very good pics of them due to fact that they cant sit still for 1 second, but oh well. there will be more posts to come.... after i have mike help upload all the pics. yep, i still cant do it on my own. oh hush!


pretty princesses
carving pumpkins. rylee loved digging out all the guts!

look what we got.....

Little Aiden is here!!!! he was born on wednesday the 17th a 7:54 pm. 7lbs, 3oz and 19 3/4 in long. i have to say that it was probably the shortest labor EVER!! considering that i was already at a 4, i knew it was going to be quick. my mom came up to take some measurements of rylees windows for her curtains at around 5:00 and thats when my contractions started, so i told her she had better hurry and get home to change her clothes and get back up here. oh, and lets not forget that mike had decided it was a good time to buy a bunch plants for the yard and start a little project..... was not happy about that. i dont know why nobody believes me when i tell them i am in labor!!! so, we finally get to the hospital and i am at an 8 and was so exited when they told i could still get an epidural. he was still a little high so they told it would work in time. i was a 9 when i finally got it and it worked just in time!!! i only had to push a few times and he was out! and can i just say that when you dont have an episiotamy(sp??), the recovery is so easy! he is such a good baby and the girls love him to death! we got so lucky with him, he really is so good. i dont know what i would do if he was any different. he pretty much just sleeps and eats and poops and sleeps some more.....isnt that the life? rylee LOVES him and always wants to hold him. she is very protective of him too. adyson is doing a lot better than i thought she would. she will give him hugs and kisses and want to lay on him, so that is kind of scary sometimes but other than that she doesnt really mind him being around and me holding him and feeding him. here is a few pics that we have gotten so far.....


mommy and aiden waiting to be released from the hospital
aiden being the cutest little baby ever!
ok, i just had to post this one of addy. this totally captures her personality and is way too cute not to post!
