Bonds .......... I Wonder ????

It's amazing how when you have a child you start to realize how important bonds are with the important people in your life. I think these 2 pictures say a million words on the bond my little girl is getting with my grandparents. When I saw them I just smiled !!! I wonder what is my Grama showing Aubrey that she is looking at so seriously for a 2 year old. I also wonder what happened right before this picture with my Grampa was taken to make her have that great smile on her face. To me this is priceless ..........

crazy life for far in 2010 !!

Well, I said I was going to try to blog 2-3 times a week in 2010 and then I got sick for the 1st seven days of the year so I had a little change of plans. Now I am feeling MUCH better and have lots to catch everyone up on.

On January 8th we went back to Dr. Schenk , our fertility dr, and started treatments again because we want to have another baby. I am so excited about this and if everything goes the as we hope we will have a new baby @ the end of the year !!! Wow !! That is amazing to think we are adding to our family again. Our children are such blessings. They are trying at times but bring us so much joy. We honestly love being with our kids and doing things as a family.

Aubrey started going to mother's day out @ our church this week. She has been in daycare since she was 18 months old but since my mom is not working anymore she wanted to watch her and I want her to still have the interaction she loves with kids her age. I love my mom watching her. Aubrey changed my mom's name from Gramme which all the other granddaughters call her to Yaya and I think that is so cute. I love watching them develop this amazing bond. It's also amazing to have my mom here when I get home from work. It's kinda like I feel like she is ....... not making up ...... but she is there now for me because she always worked when I was a kid and I love how she takes care of my little girl. I have to admit that sometimes I get jealous when Aubrey calls me Yaya or tells me she go to yaya's house.

Shelby is becoming such a pretty young lady. She is growing up right before our eyes and I can't believe she is almost 12 !! Really ??? Where did my little girl who played with her care bears go ??? She is so cute developing her own sense of style. She is kinda a punk rocker hippie type of person if that makes sense. I'm so impressed with the person she is becoming. She has her moments where she acts crazy sometimes but overall she is becoming such a beautiful girl inside and out. I'm so proud to be her mom !!

Hello 2010 !!!

I can't believe that it is already 2010 !!! So a new year means a fresh start. 2009 was amazing but I know 2010 will be better.

First of all ........ Mike & I decided we are going to try for another baby this year. I knew after I had Aubrey that I wasn't "done" having kids yet and now seems like a great time to add to our family. Britanee is going to graduate in June. Shelby will be 12 in April & Aubrey just turned 2 and is such a big girl now. I made an appointment with the fertility doctor I used to get pregnant with the triplets & Aubrey for January 8th. I am so excited !!!

I don't really have any new year resolutions but I do have things I would like to do better this year..........

1. I would like to have date nights with my hubby without the kids at least once a month. He is the love of my life and sometimes it just feels like we are going & going and pass each other in the process. I want to make it a point to show him that he's my #1 !!!

2. I am going to try to have more patience with my kids. Shelby is almost 12 and has such an attitude sometimes and it really wears on my patience with her at times. I know she is like all pre teens but lord helpo me with this one !!! Miss Aubrey is 2 and it's her way or meltdown !! I know she is learning and I have to be patient with her as she figures out things on her own. I love my girls and I know bringing a new baby will definatly shake things up but I'm in this for the long run.

3. I need to make more time for my friends. I have close friends that invite me to do things but I never have enough time to go anywhere with them. I feel like I have no clue what is going on in their lives anymore. I truly miss my friends but I need to figure out how to balance family, friends & work.

4. This blog ....... I created this blog to keep my family & friends updated on what is going on in my life but it seems I forget to write on it so I'm going to make sure that I blog at least 2-3 times a week.
I think these are all achievable goals and I can't wait to make them happen !!!
