Noteworthy

{1} My baby girl turned 3 months old today! And...her first tooth poked through yesterday!

Photobucket

We are currently in the midst of teething hell. I had a feeling she was teething, and knew she would get her first tooth early, considering Dylan and Lexie got their first teeth at 4 months. I did not expect her to get one this early! Only a tiny section is through the gum, so I know she has a way to go before she gets some relief.

She is the happiest baby, and is even trying to smile through her pain.

{2} My baby boy had a growth spurt last week. All of the sudden, he was too tall for his pants!

{3} The kids found the window markers I had hidden. Enough said.

{4} The Christmas catalogs have arrived.

They want everything...including iPods for Christmas. They just may get cheap, used ones, because let's face it...it keeps them quiet!

{5} He loves camo.

I do not.

{6} Lily's favorite toy is a puppy bouncer that my best friend let us borrow. As soon as the puppy starts moving, a smile lights up her face!

{7} She also loves her feet. (And Grant loves her onesie...the same one her brother and sister once wore.)

Photobucket

{8} Hand me downs are awesome! Lily is mostly wearing Dylan's gender neutral baby clothes and Lexie's baby clothes!

{9} This shirt says it all:

{10} A sweet friend of mine made a beautiful blanket for Lily! I love it!

Photobucket

{11} Lexie is my budding artist. She creates 10-20 drawings and paintings a day!

Photobucket

{12} She's also incredibly cute.

Photobucket

{13} Last week, Lexie and I made shrinky dinks! It was a blast from my past! When they came out of the oven, Lexie said I was "magical" for making them shrink!

We then turned them into charm bracelets.

{14} The kids are having a great time digging into their candy bags.

Photobucket

{15} We had a playdate with my best friend and her boys today. Aren't they cute?!?

{16} 13 weeks old:

{17} Big/Little.

{18} On Saturday night, Dylan's fish, Batfish, of almost 3 years died. That same night, our old cat passed away. I had some sad kids on Sunday morning. Since then, Lexie has been following around our cat, Baby Phat.

Photobucket

{19} The weather has been crazy. It went from hot...to cold...to snow...back to the 60's. I packed away summer clothes, then had to pull them back out, then had to bring out the snow gear! It's hard to believe that Lexie had on a summer dress just 2 weeks ago!

Photobucket

{20} Dylan and Lily look a lot alike!

Photobucket

Then again, so do Lily and Lexie!

{21} This big guy? Straight A's in first grade!!!

I'm so proud!

{22} This is my life...

...and I love it!

  6. OMG, teeth already? T got her first tooth at 16 months (not a typo) and V just after she turned one. Poor baby. And I think we say it all the time, but Lexie and T would be such great friends! T has more drawings than I know what to do with (I end up recycling many of them after she goes to bed and feel a bit guilty).

  9. Oh poor Lily! That seems awfully young to be dealing with teething pain! I love the last picture - nothing better than a living room full of little ones... and a big dog :)

  10. And what a great life it is! Except for your cat and batfish--sorry about that. :(

    Your picture are are always just so dang adorable! Evie got her first tooth at 3 months too, which made feeding her painful once she learned she could bite down.

    And we just happen to have that same baby swing. Most of my kids slept in it for a while. :)

  16. Whoa! TEETH AT 3 MONTHS?! Holy girl. I feel sorry for you...and her!! :-) And where in the world did you find SHRINKY DINKS?? I loved those and I bet my daughter would, too!
