It's been busy around here...

I feel like I haven't posted hardly anything lately. To be honest, I have been so bad about taking any pictures. It seems like there is always a kid in my arms or I am feeding someone or making food for someone or changing a diaper. I have thought I ought to count how many diapers I change a day. I know it's allot b/c my hands are suffering from washing them so much. My hands have turned into "mommy hands" (no offense Mom!)

So here are a couple of recent pictures of the kids. Here is Haylee and Katelynn who are now wearing the same size diapers. We haven't taken Katelynn for her 4 mo checkup yet to see how big she is but she is 4 mo and is wearing 6 and 9 month clothes so she seems to be pretty big. Haylee is so small and petite I think Katelynn is going to catch up. You can also see Ryan's shoe that Haylee was playing with how big it is compared to them. That boy has some BIG feet. Just look below...

Katelynn laughing. She is doing so much lately. I haven't actually seen her roll over but I know she has because I found her on the couch, she had rolled over from her tummy to her back and had scooted from laying against the back of the couch to laying long ways with her head hanging of the end of the couch upside down just watching TV. YIKES! Scared me to death. I had just left her there for a second but I guess that's all it took. So needless to say, no more sleeping on the couch for Katelynn. We put up the baby bed we got from a friend in our ABF ( thanks Scarlett) in Haylee's room and got it all set up and tried putting Katelynn in it. It has not gone so well yet. Haylee hates it and just cries and wants to get sister when she is in it. When they are both in their bed's they both cry and Haylee won't even lay down. All she wants to do is look at that other bed in her room and cry. I'm sure she just wants to get in it. Anyways, we ended up buying a miniature pack and play from craigslist to keep in the living room for now. It has worked perfect and I wish I would have had this all along. I will post pictures of it and the girls room soon.


















Haylee has been a busy bee. She has been very clingy since she had the RSV and wants to be held allot. She has been saying tons of more words lately. She can say bath, bird, book, bubba, light, pa pa (for grandpa), Santa, Pretty, juice, Mmm-Mee (for yummy..ie food) Tee Tee and when she goes poo poo she says "Eeeww Weee" (for Shuuu Weee). She actually grabs her diaper any time she pees or poops so I have had several people telling me she might be ready to start potty training. My mom had me and my sister trained at 18 months. I just cant imagine her peeing in the potty. She is still so small but, it sure would be nice to not have to buy diapers for 2 babies. I put her on the potty before her bath everytime but she hasn't done anything yet. We'll see, not sure if I am ready to tackle that yet. Here is a picture of her eating some "yummy's" as she calls it.

How cute!!! I wish Prince "S" would say that many words. He has only a few. He is going to get on ECI soon.

Can't wait to see the pictures of the girls room.

I love seeing new pics of your cuties! Haylee's hair is getting so long and I don't think it will be long before the girls start looking like twins (same size)!

Growing Up...Isaac said...

Wow, she's growing up fast! I wish Isaac said that much, too. He's got some words, but not that many. And I can't imagine trying to potty train yet! Do not look forward to that. The girls are gorgeous! Miss you guys!

You're doing so good Girl! I know...I haven't posted on my blog in like 14 years. Just too many other things to do, plus loading pics from our camera is still a learning process. Anyway, that's great about the mini pack n play - it's WAY cute. You need to teach me the ropes on craigslist! You're such a great mommy and doing a wonderful job girl...
