Two months???

Has it already been two months? I cannot believe it, so much has happened in that time and no time to share it unless you witness it for yourself.

Payton played soccer for the first time but had to miss quite a few games due to pneumonia

Daniel played flag football too and his team is in the playoffs and was in his first major role in his school play,

in May had 2 foot of rain fall from the sky in a few day period, putting part of the city under water. Thankfully we live on a hill up from the river but the end of the street was a pool!

found out new baby will be here in November and we will find out what it is June 19th.

Daniel graduated the Fire Academy, and both his state EMT and Fire Exams. Now he is applying for a job everywhere a fire house exists.
Isaac is turning into such a toddler boy that it blows my mind he's 18 months old; laughing, clapping himself on, playing peek a boo by hiding around corners or even behind things you can completely see through, climbing onto chairs and stools, and learning so much more even quicker (like how to clean up toys and even laundry :). We leave in two days to go to Louisville for a week, which should be more fun now he is mobile. At the same time Im dreading the plane ride, yes, because he is mobile.

I cannot imagine what life is like with 4 kids but it shouldn't be bad with the 2 older boys to help. They have done so much in helping with Isaac, whether its feeding him, reading to him, playing with him, helping in the car while Im driving, or just loving on him. With the birth of another one, I pray this solidifies our family even further.

Its been a busy time with my husband finishing school (and passing his finals), Payton starting soccer, getting rid of sickness and getting some more (morning sickness that is :) Isaac is getting so big and I had alot of fun with him last night just hanging out playing.

You can't tell it in the video, but everytime I push the lego on wheels, he pinches his fingers together over and over again while tightening almost every muscle in his body in excitement. It was so cute.

Tis the Birthday Season

Here in our house 3/5 of the birthdays fall within 3 weeks of one another, which is only 3 weeks after Christmas! Its been pretty busy planning parties, presents, making icecream cakes, and not forgetting to invite people to the party (yes its true :) (thanks to Kurt and Margaret who made it with only an hours notice).

Little Daniel turned 10 on January 14th, and i don't have many pictures yet because they are on my mother in laws camera since we could not find our battery charger and both the battery packs were dead. I do have pictures of the Ice cream cupcake cones he took to school though, the kids were stumped how I got the cake in the cone :) If you want to try it, look on the sides of Keeblers ice cream cone box. The tricky thing was figuring out how to get them to school and not tip over. It took quite some time but i turned a Bealls box into a means of transportting 24 cup cake cones to school with no spills!!!

I turned 30 on February 1st, yes Super Bowl Sunday. Used to always be the week before when I was growing up, now it lands on my birthday week. We had to have the party for Payton that day because this was our weekend to have him and his Dad was in school all day on the 31st. We also celebrated Paytons birthday buddy, his Uncle Erik, who turned 34 on Paytons birthday. Linda brought over some decorations she had and all the kids got to decorate their own cookies.
Paytons birthday was Thursday February 5th, and believe it or not both he and his teacher FORGOT to eat the cupcakes before the bell rang that day :) so they enjoyed them that Friday instead. Nothing beats celebrating your birthday 2 day in a row, ya know?
The really cool thing is the monthly skating fundraiser for their school was that night, so they announced his birthday over the loudspeaker. It was a fun night...even though I fell when going to fast skating backwards, im okay :) This was Alex's last skate night since he moved away last week to central Florida.

Its been a fun but busy month!!!

Took these videos of Isaac playing Saturday night. He is getting pretty good at getting around, its starting to setting in that my little baby is not so little anymore. Pretty soon he is going to be wanting to go outside and chase his brothers around.

Gotta love the footie pajamas...
