Wow! I can't believe it is almost can this be?
My computer died so, I haven't been able to update our blog.
We're doing well.
Taylor, is doing well. She watched The Sound of Music for the first time tonight and loved it! She was glued the whole time to the movie. I think the singing kept her interest. She is still taking ballet and she loves it. She is learning the positions. She helped me make homemade applesauce the other day and loved it. She loves to play the game Candy Land. She has such a kind heart and is always wanting to help others!
Kamdyn, is doing well. She is learning to use the big girl potty! She wears big girl underwear during the day. On Wednesday, I took the kids to the grocery store and she didn't have an accident, came home and went on the potty! We did the potty dance and she got a treat! She just started to be a little rebellious when it came to naps and night time. After, a few days we nipped it in the bootie, she is so obedient and wants to listen!
Harper, well he is growing and growing! He feels so big to me. I can't believe he will be 2 months next week. He is really on a routine now. He sleeps really well, morning nap, mid nap and afternoon nap. He goes down to sleep about 8pm and sleeps about 5 hours and another 5 hours! He really is a good baby. The girls love him so much, Ta always wants to hold him and Kam always wants to kiss him.
Jacob, is doing well. Just traveling again. He is the perfect helpmate...and such a good dad! He takes the girls every Thursday on a date to the library.
Me, I'm doing well. just adjusting to life as a mom of 3. Its not difficult just a little more time consuming! Of course, my life is not my own anymore and I love it! I took all 3 to the grocery store. They did so well. Harp, slept in the moby wrap and the two girls helped me shop. Of course I bribed them with treats!
I will post pictures soon!

Happy Belated Valentines Day!

Happy belated V-Day!
On Friday night, Ta and daddy went to the Valentines day dance. This is the second year they have attended. Kamy, is still too young to attend. But, next year she will be going! They had such a good time......
Kamy and I stayed up and watched a movie.
Harper, is getting bigger. He is starting to smile! The picture of him is in the first outfit I bought for him. It has gators all over it and it says chomp chomp!!!
Today, I finally archived my old voicemails on my phone. I didn't want to listen to them because all of them were from my dad. Jake found a way to save them so, I could get the new IPhone 4 from Verizon! So, I heard my dads voice today....its been almost two years. I saved voicemails all the way back from when I was in labor with Taylor (April 1, 2007.)

All about Taylor

I can't tell you how much this girl has grown in the past few months!
She is a new little girl. She will be 4 in April. How can I have a 4 year old? I have no idea. She loves to learn anything and everything.
Tonight, I was doing our usual bed time routine. I sing 4 songs to all the kids at bed time, "Don't sit under the apple tree," "Our Father," "The Garden" and "What friend we have in Jesus." She sang each some with me tonight. It was so special and I was shocked because she now knows the Lord's Prayer! Taylor you are such a joy!

Harper 1 month

Harper, turned 1 month on Feb 5th. We had his well check up today and he weighted in at a whopping 11 lbs 7 ozs and 22.5 inches long. He is in the 90% all the way around! So, that means he has gained 3 lbs and grown 1 inch in just a month. I knew he was getting bigger but, I didn't know how big. I guessed some where around 10 lbs but nope...I was 1 lbs and 7 ozs off.
He is doing well. He slept 5 hours straight last night and sleeps in 3-4 hr patterns during the day. He is a very easy baby!

More Snow

1. Harper and daddy..both with spiked hair!
2. Taylor, enjoying her hot chocolate!
3. Kamdyn, enjoying her first hot chocolate!
4. 24 inch snow drift on the sliding glass door in the playroom!
5. Jake shoveling the driveway..12 inches and no the picture is not blurry that is snow!

So, we've had more snow than we know what to do with. On Monday, we had a blizzard. Really...a blizzard, with 12 inches + of snow. It was blowing so hard and we have major snow drifts. Our deck has at least 2 feet of snow, from snow drifts.
We are doing well besides all the snow.
Harper, is one month old today. I can't believe it. He is sleeping well, about 4 hrs at a time. He loves to be held and he loves to cuddle. I love it! Its awesome having a little man, he is so precious!
His sisters love waking him up....really!
Taylor, started dance/ballet on again. We took Dec off because of Christmas. She is super excited. The ministry that we are apart of has a dance/ballet class for little girls. I love it because I do not have to worry about the atmosphere or the teachers that teach the class. Its awesome and Ta loves it!
Kamdyn, loves Harper. She say's "one more more kiss." That means she wants to give Harper one more kiss, even if he is sleeping! She is currently getting her third eye tooth....ouch!
Jake, starts traveling again this month. He will be in L.A. and out side of Chicago. I just want to say, that he has been such a good help mate this last month. Our transition from 2-3 went really smooth!
