Haylee Marie showing off

Here are a few pictures of Haylee showing off with Aunt Brookie. She's saying "Where's Haylee?"

(I got these cute little jeans at a resale shop for $5 new and never been worn with the tags still on them from Macy's. I thought that were adorable with the red velvet bow and the flowers.)

Sweet little Ham!

Round 3 (please Lord, let it stop here)

Well, I'm sure you know what I am about to say when I say "Round 3". Yep, you guessed it. Katelynn has RSV AGAIN for the 3rd time in 3 months!!!! Luckily this time hasn't been as bad as the other two times but I am worn out. I am so ready to be able to take her outside when it's a nice day and to be able to go to church each weekend which is usually one of my only outings. Poor baby has pretty much been sick since Tyler's birthday party on Nov. 22nd. That's 3 months of constant coughing, snot and sleepless days and nights for Katelynn and mommy.

Tyler started coughing and sneezing the end of last week and Saturday night Haylee and Katelynn started doing the same thing. RSV shows up as just a cold in older children so more than likely he gave both of them RSV. I can't keep him from kissing on those girls. Haylee is improving better and faster than Katelynn and I didn't see the need to pay 2 copays when I was sure they had the same thing so I just scheduled Katelynn. The doctor said she didn't hear any wheezing this time and that she didn't want to get a chest X-ray quite yet until the RSV is out of her system. If Katelynn is still coughing next week then she will order it then since she had the Pneumonia a couple of weeks ago. Please pray for her to completely heal this time and for her to have good health soon. I could use a little less drama around the house so I can focus on laundry and dishes instead of holding sick babies all day.

Here is a more recent picture of her. This was probably on one of her better days last week after the Pneumonia. She is such a sweet baby and has learned how to sit up and give me kisses. I'll have to get some pictures soon.

My tulips I got from my sweet husband for Valentine's Day

I just wish they lived as long as roses. Oh well, I still have the gorgeous planter. Kinda funny my mom got the same thing except her's had red roses instead of tulips. Thanks honey!

A day outside

I think this was a couple of Saturday's ago and it was a beautiful day. Ryan has been working every weekend since New Years so my mom came over to watch the kids so I could go get a much needed haircut. On my way out the door my mom mentioned that there was a playhouse that someone had set by the side of the road with a bunch of trash. I drove that way as I left to take a peek at it and called mom back to see if my dad could come snatch it up. Even if he could come get it I thought for sure that it would be gone. Well I got home from my hair appt and there it was in my driveway.

The kids loved it. Tyler is a little tall but it will be perfect for Haylee and Katelynn! It is in great shape.

Haylee checking out Tyler's Big Wheel.

And raking the leaves. We have 2 HUGE 50 year old Pecan trees in the back yard and they produce tons and tons of leaves. It's up to the kids knees when they walk in the back yard. And as you can see they blow to the front yard too. That's how tall these tree's are.

Peek a boo!

Haylee loves this dancing/singing Santa Tyler got from his Granny. She carries him around everywhere. I keep thinking after all the times she has dropped him he will stop working. Nope, it actually seems like he is getting louder and louder. I make Tyler keep him in the garage. It's mean I know but my stress level is high enough during the day without that Santa singing 12 days of Christmas! So she kept getting him out of the garage and taking him in her playhouse and making him sing. Neighbors were looking at me as if I had a radio turned on playing this Christmas song. LOL

Little Smirk

This is the little smile/smirk Katelynn was always making. It's like she was trying to hide her smile and being bashful. I have actually noticed in the past few days that she doesn't seem to be doing this as much anymore. She still acts bashful but now she just tries to hide her face. Just thought I would post a few pic's so I could remember down the road that cute little smirk. LOVE IT!

Haylee's BFF Noah

For Christmas, Haylee got a "Little People" Noah's Ark set. She has played with it very well and loves to take out all the animals then put them back in the boat over and over again. One night she brought the little old man up to me and I pointed to him and said "Noah." She replied back to me immediately "Wo wha" and immediately ran to bubba and streched her arm out and happily said "wo wha" and last ran to daddy and showed him wowha. After playing with him for a hour, she took him to sleep with her that night and not too long after I had laid her down I heard Noah hit her hard wood floor in her room. I thought to myself, don't forget to look for Noah in the morning. Here is a picture of Haylee's BFF Noah:

Tyler likes to get Haylee out of the bed in the mornings sometimes so I let him this morning and he must have grabbed Noah as well. Haylee saw the Ark and quickly remembered "wo wha" and she started looking everywhere for him. I told Tyler to go look for Noah that Haylee had dropped him last night out of her bed and he was somewhere in there. Little did I know he was playing his own little game. They looked and looked and I finally joined in looking everywhere. Haylee walked around just in her sweetest little voice pleaing for Noah to come out.....Wo wha, wo wha she said it probably 100 times almost crying for him.

We finally found him! HOURS later we found him.....Tyler had put him under the couch and has since hid him several more times just to torcher Haylee. This last time he had been gone for a couple of weeks and I thought Haylee would have forgotten about him. I found him when I was cleaning Tyler's room and I showed her and said, Haylee who is that. She just screamed, did a happy dance and grabbed and hugged him and said "Wo wha!" She remembered and it made her day! I have instructed Tyler that he will be in very big trouble if he hides Noah again.

Here are just a few extra pictures of this sweet funny girl. You can see Noah's Ark in the back of this picture.

Big O Grin! This is the biggest grin I think I have ever gotten on camera. (Love the Sponge Bob top two teeth.)She like to wear lots of bows now. If she finds a bow laying around, she thinks it needs to be in her hair regardless if she already has one or not. They don't even have to match.

Thought this one was cute. She is such a Sass!

The road to recovery...

Katelynn is getting better! YAY! I took her to the doctor this morning and she listened to her lungs and gave me the thumbs up basically. No more wheezing which means no more breathing treatments. She has just 2 days left of one of the antibiotics and she will be done with the medicine.

She has been a happier baby and more herself for the past day or two. She is such a sweet baby and I am so glad for her to be through all of this. Thank you for all who were praying for her. Our prayers were certainly answered.

Now if I can just get her through the "I've been sick and I want to be held all the time" mindset, we'll be doing good!
