Happy Halloween!!

My three babies... Dorothy, Toto, and the cowardly lion... We had an absolute BLAST with this girls trick or treating. We spent the evening with lots of friends cooking out, fire pit, smores, lots of kiddos laughing, and just having a good time. LOVE nights like these. 

I can't get enough of watching Olivia laughing and playing with friends. She is so full of spunk and such attitude :) She keeps me on my toes and is always up to something or having questions :) I wore Adelynn forward facing and she LOVED watching all the kiddos that were dressed up and spent the evening smiling at everyone talking to her.. until she passed smooth out and i had to turn her around to take a nap while the kiddos finished up trick or treating!

4 year and 4 Month Check Up

Time is flying we had our check ups yesterday and the girls have both grown so much.

Olivia is now 31 lbs AND finally on her growth chart at 15% and she is 40 in tall 50%! She did awesome at the appointment and is doing amazing! I'm so thankful her being preemie hasn't held her down like the doctors said could happen.. She is so smart as I'm so proud of her and all the learning she has done :) can't believe she still has another year until kindergarten she is def gonna miss her friends next year :(

Adelynn weighed in at 13.7 50% and 25.5 in 90% she is growing so big! She did NOT like her shots!! :( so sad! But she took her longest nap ever when we got home! Poor girl!

Check ups were a success! Healthy girls = happy mommy :)

Adelynn *4 Months*

You have got such a personality and are always smiling.. It seems like you are starting to outgrow all the crying and are happy more often. You have started to enjoy belly time more and can roll over and over :) I can walk out of the living room and come back and you will have rolled across your blanket to the other side. 

You are very verbal and love to baby talk and watch everything around you. I'm so thankful to be able to watch you at "school" and how you interact with the other kiddos you love the older ones talking to u :)

We got your jumperoo out and u enjoy sitting in it for a bit but your not quite long enough to touch so we have to put a pillow under you..  You just love to look around and grab anything you find..  We got you a new piano playmat which u kick with you feet to play the music as you are very knot grabbing all the toys above you. 

You had your first parents as teachers visit and she was very impressed by you which made mommy super proud. She loved that you would roll and roll and push up on your arms while on tummy along w all your chit chat! Mommy and daddy don't stand a chance with u and ur sister ;) 

Your sleeping at night has def gotten worse. You went from sleeping all night to now u wake up and make noise and ill get up give u binky and u go back to sleep but that gets super old after the 10th time so you usually end up on Mommys chest by 4-5am so mommy can get those that couple hours of sleep.. 

We are now on gentlease 100% and you seem to be doing great on it.. U are also taking Prevacid again but it's now the liquid and for the last week we have been doing prune juice bc you have been constipated. Which really ticks u off! And it's so sad! :( 

Your have your 4 month appointment on Wed and Olivia has her 4 year I'm so excited to see how much you've grown! You are wearing 3 month or 3-6 month and Diapers are 1-2. 

You are such a snuggler and I'm taking full advantage :) this last month you have started really talking some serious baby talk, rolling all over, giggling, and really people watching. You LOVE when sis plays with you and gets all in your face :) you just laugh and smile at her. You also love for us for us to sing "you are my sunshine" :) even tho we are terrible u always smile :) 

We love you Mae Mae!!! So excited for the holidays with you!! <3

Aching Heart

I haven't felt so much pain in my heart in quite some time... today as i sat in the funeral and just listening to the songs and Mr. Bock talking about Roo I cant seem to get it off my mind. I've been thinking about him all day. Things like this aren't supposed to happen and I'm questioning why? He was such a genuine and caring guy who no matter how long it had been since i had seen him last-- he always greeted me with a big hug and smile and loved catching up.

As young kids going through Elementary school we were great friends we always played basketball together and he was always over at Ben's ( My next door neighbor) and we always played outside together. He was one of my first little boyfriends at a young age when wearing your boyfriends starter jacket was super cool.. this was around 5-6th grade.. He is the reason me and my best friend Jessica became so close.. super long story but he was it.

I can still hear his momma saying "Christopher, Lauren's on the phone" crazy how things come back to you and how his older brothers and his friends would tease us on the bus for holding hands under a jacket lol so funny.. He was one amazing guy and I'm SO thankful I was fornuate to grow up with him even tho we had drifted apart which is what happens i guess after high school everyone moves on and things change.

I sure do regret not keeping in contact with him more, but thankful for the time I got with him sharing memories that i will not forget.

God please help me understand why things like this happen and keep your arms around his beautiful mother.. She is such a sweet person..
