Snowy Start to Spring

The weather forecast called for blizzard like conditions for western Oklahoma this weekend! Crazy considering all last week was spent in the mid to high 70s! Well, it wasn't a blizzard, but we did receive about 2-3 inches of snow! So early Saturday morning we bundled up all of our kids and off we went to play in the snow! Chloe and Caity had a blast making snow angels and a small snowman! We all had so much fun I have to share these pics with you!

Getting the eyes and nose on the snowman!

Caity having fun with the snowman!

Chloe adding her final touches!

I guess Chloe would rather eat the carrot than give Mr Snowman a nose!

Baby Brother, Jack got to enjoy his very first snow too!

WE had so much fun welcoming spring time with a blast of winter weather! It really got all of us ready for some heat! Bring on the swimming pool!!!

Before I go I want to share a pic of Chloe and Caity's first snow, Nov 2006!

I have another post coming soon, you won't want to miss it.............

Chloe's broken Collar Bone and Baby brother is 11 weeks!

Chloe broke her right collar bone on Saturday night while spending the night with my dad. Jeff and I were about half way through our meal at Applebee's when we got the call that Chloe was hurt! I was scared to death, but she was a trooper! On the way to the ER she was only afraid of getting a shot! She was on my Dad's coffee table and fell backwards on her head-neck. The ER did a CT Scan and everything looked normal, but a chest X-ray confirmed a broken clavicle. WE went to the Orthopedic Surgeon on Mon and he said she will not need surgery and should be completely healed in 3 weeks! If you could see her now, you wouldn't even know she has a broken bone! (and FYI codeine hypes kids up......BIG TIME!) Here is a pic I took Sunday night after she got out of the bath....Poor Baby!

Jack was 11 weeks old yesterday! This kid is huge! He is smiling sooo big and belly laughing now! Last night we were having tummy time before his bath and he ROLLED OVER from his belly to his back! Seriously.....he's only 11 weeks! This kid is like an Ox......he is soooooo strong! Here is a picture of him sitting up like a big boy in his sisters' recliner!

He is such a cutie....dontcha think?

~Baby Brother is 2 Months~

Jack is now 2 months old! He is the best baby EVER! I'm so proud of him! He has truly completed our family, and I could not be more blessed! We went to the Dr for his 2 month check up and he got 3 shots :( weighed 13 lbs and was 24 inches long! Whew....this boy is growing, make it stop! I want him to stay a baby forever! Some things Jack is doing at 2 months are:

  • Sleeping through the night

  • laying on his belly and raising his head for almost 1 minute

  • fully breastfeeding

  • smiles the biggest smiles @ momma, daddy, sisters and grandparents

  • chuckling when he hears me laugh

  • cooing...the sweetest sound EVER!

  • loves his swing

  • loves his sisters to sing to him

  • bats at objects that are put in front of his face

  • only poops every 3 days! (how luck am I?)

  • has the bluest eyes....i hope they stay this color

  • only fusses when he want to be picked up

  • sucks on his hand when hungry

  • sleeps in my bedroom at light, but naps during the day in his crib

  • Loves to sit in his bumbo and watch me cook dinner

  • looks just like his Daddy

  • Also known around our house as "Baby Love"


I can't believe you are already 2 months old! I wish you could stay a baby forever, you will be my baby forever! You are the sweetest little boy on this earth and I am so lucky to be your Mommy! Your Daddy, Sisters and I love you with all our hearts and without you our lives would be incomplete! I love you to the moon and back Baby Love!
