You are such a joy and keep us smiling and laughing each day. You have grown so much Sarah Scott and you are one beautiful little girl. Mommy and daddy love you more than you know. You are talking non stop now and surprise us each day with things that you say. I have been telling you all day that it is your birthday and you just look at me and smile. You have a Dora birthday party tomorrow and I know you will have such a great time. We love you sweet girl! It's your day today!!!

A little bit of this and that

Another Monday over...I feel like I was not very productive today. I don't have too much left to do for SS bday party this weekend. I did realize today that I had SS's tutu for the party but no shirt to go with it. I called Scott's aunt ASAP and got that taken care of. ..with a little battle in the fabric store with SS.
These days SS is sweet...BUT my lawd is she moody. I think this is why I feel like I cant get much done. She goes from smiling and being happy to throwing a toy, stomping her foot and marching off. It really is wearing me out at times and I feel like stomping my foot and walking off too!!! I have tried time out a few times with her but today when I would get on to her she would walk off a few feet, sit on the floor and then look at me and say "sit down." She knew that was getting ready to come out of my mouth. I just look at her and try my best not to laugh....she is too smart!
So last weekend Scott had the kids for a while and when I got home I see her baby on the table with a vaseline bottle beside it....

..Scott tells me that while he was changing Hampton SS put a diaper under her baby and then opened the vaseline container and put it on her baby!! What a sweet little momma!

Sat afternoon we had Addi's bday party. It was a blast and I think that kids had more fun than the adults. They had a huge water slide at the party and SS and Scott loved it.

SS started with Scott helping her from the side. Then Scott decided to join in on the fun. They started at the top...

and this was the end of the slide...

and then this was where they finally landed!!

We put Hamp in the swing for the first time and he LOVED it. He did not make a peep and just sat back and relaxed!!

I cant believe how fast our kids are growing. 4 more days and SS will be 2! WOW! Looking forward to celebrating Dora style!!!

Catching up

I have been so slack with this blog lately. We have had quite a few things going on that I have wanted to write about but when I get some quiet time I either want to sleep, clean or spend time with Scott.
Just to back track June the kids and I, Nicole(sis n law) and Addi(niece) went to the beach for several days. My aunt and uncle go with their 2 kids and my grandmother every year and in the past growing up I would go with them. Since being married and now having children I have not been able to make it so I was very excited to go this year. The kids did great but I will say it was a little much handling them without Scott. The family was a huge help though!

SS loved the beach and swimming in the pool...Hamp was not a huge fan...he is to fat to be in the hot sun!!:)
The kids did wonderful during the ride and on the way home having 3 tired kids in the backseat got me out of a speeding ticket!!! The police officer said "it looks like you have some worn out kids in the back." I batted my eyes a little and said "yes sir they are ready to be home" worked all I got was a warning!! Now SS says "fast" when we drive!!

July came around and we had April and Jacob in for the weekend of the 4th.

We always have a great time with them and they adjust to the lack of sleeping arrangements at our little bungalow!!!
Scott smoked barbecue...

and we had friends over for food, horseshoe and fireworks.

It was a wonderful time.

Through the summer I feel like the kids are growing like little weeds.

Hampton is 21lbs, sitting up and becoming such a little man!

SS...well lets just say she is a sassy little thing. Overnight she started carrying conversations with us and has gone from this little girl to this mature little 2 year old. I love it...she is saying things that just crack us up...she knows things that I still don't know how she figured them out! For example the other day we are reading a counting book...I start 1 she says "2" I say 3,4,5,6 she says"7" I proceed with 8, she says "9 10" the heck do you know that:)!!!
She no longer calls Hampton "danton" he is now "buddy." BUT..not just buddy its "buddy buddy buddy" FAST!! Every time she calls him she says his name in 3's.
Pouting has come to stay...she will throw her head in her hands and do a fake cry...then peek at you through her fingers with a little grin! She pouts about anything these days.

We have been teaching her how to say her name...we have made great progress from "Sott" to now " Say Sott!"
My 2 big "to do's" now are starting to think about potty training and getting rid of the paci. I just don't see this paci thing happening anytime soon bc it is so devastating to her when she doesn't have it..HOWEVER daddy has a different agenda!!
Until next time...a little sibling love!!

7 months old

Hampton turned 7 months old 7/3. We had company in town so I have not been able to sit and blog lately....that will be a separate post. It is so hard to believe that Hampton has been with us for 7 months. I feel like time with him is going by so much faster than it did with Sarah Scott at this age. Maybe because I am so busy with both of them that I don't have time to!!
He is such a joy and such a happy baby. He is either eating, sleeping or talking and laughing. He only cries when he is hungry, sleepy or wants his momma. Not bragging but he loves his momma. Tonight in fact I left to run an errand..he was in his bouncy when I left...started screaming when I walked out the home an hour later and he is sitting with Scott, tears running down his face and trying to calm down from crying so much. Momma picks him up and he looks at Scott with a BIG smile on his face! I love it!!!!

So Hampton what are you up to these days!
*weigh 20lbs 6oz
* love baby food. You are not like your sister at will eat peas and green beans...anything!
* Sleeping 8-8 with a nap in the AM and afternoon.
* size 4 diapers
*12 month clothes
* say "Thaa thaa" all the time
* starting to sit can stay up for about 8 seconds then you will fall over...unless you have something to hold on to
* you LOVE to stand and just jump...its your favorite
* still eating 4 8oz bottles a day and baby food for breakfast and dinner
*really starting to laugh at Sarah Scott...she will get in your face and blow on you and you just laugh and laugh at her.

We love you dearly little man. You fill my heart with such joy. I love cuddling with you and getting kisses from you. We love you Hampton!!
