Caitlyn is 4 months old


Man oh man is time flying by.. my littlest girl is already 4 months old. She is smiling, laughing and almost rolling over. She rolls onto her side but won't commit to the full roll over. We have an appointment next week to find out how much she has grown but my guess is she is at least 13 lbs. She is now officially wearing 3-6 month clothes wahoo!! She is such a great baby. We bought her a sleep sack last week and since she has been using it at night I am getting a solid 8hr + of sleep!! Here are a few of her latest pictures...























Jocelyn's 5th Birthday!!

So the original plan for Jocelyn's Birthday was to go to our neighborhood pool and spend the morning testing out her new goggles she got the other day. However, when we woke up that morning it started pouring rain. we then thought we would go see a movie instead but all the movies were either 3D (which my kids won't wear the glasses to watch) or started way too late in the afternoon (Jo had dance class). So after driving around for a bit we finally decided we would take the kiddos to Bass Pro Shop and they could see the fish and all the "stuffed" animals. Surprisingly they had a good time checking out all the fish. Sorry for the bad pics, camera phones only do so much. We came back home and put the kids down for a short nap before Jocelyn and I headed off to her dance class. She had such a fun time at dance and loved giving all her little classmates the goody bags we made. After that the whole fam headed off to get Chinese as that was what the birthday girl wanted for her birthday dinner. Now this is one thing about Texas, you can pretty much find Mexican food anywhere but a good Chinese place is pretty tough. We finally found a place that wasn't buffet style but I don't think they get dine in customers very often because we got all our food in take out boxes...LOL. Oh well it was yummy and Jocelyn got her "noodles" (aka- chicken lo mein).

Once we were done with dinner we headed home for some cake and ice cream with friends. The kids had a blast and didn't eat hardly any cake but spent most of the evening playing. When everyone left Jocelyn and Dave went out in the front and took her new bike and safety gear for a spin. I still can't believe how big she is getting! Happy Birthday Jocelyn, we love you!!

Caitlyn's First Giggle

Okay so we are calling it a giggle because she is still too little for the gut laugh.. but it is soo cute we had to share it.

Jocelyn's Dentist Appt.

Okay so I finally (yes, I know I am a slacker, my hand has been slapped) got my kiddos into the dentist in May. Only to find out my poor Jocelyn has my awful porous teeth, which translated into 4 cavities, honestly I don't know very many people that think to floss toddlers teeth. Anyways today was her first experience with "the dentist" the way many of us in our adult age expect to experience, with drilling and shots... She was soooo GOOD!!
They came back to get me after they had numbed her up to tell me how proud they were of how well she was doing. She didn't cry and raised her hand if she was uncomfortable, I was sooo impressed with my little jo. She is getting so big and is doing so many things by herself now..its crazy. Here is her new silver tooth she got today she goes back for fillings at the end of the month, poor kiddo.
