My world

Ben absolutely adores Reese and I think the feeling is mutual.  

Silly Ben

Reese and her "look"

My sweet blessings

Both kids got shots last week.  Ben weighed 37 pounds, and I forgot his height.  I will update when we go back next month.  Reese was 11.8 pounds and 23 inches.  Both were troopers and Ben never shed a tear.  He said he was going to be like Iron Man.  

We're almost there...

We should be moving in 2 weeks.  I'm sure most of you would have all your stuff boxed, labeled and ready to go.  I like to be different, so I do not.  I am stressing now knowing that we have plenty of volunteer movers and some trucks and trailers ready to go, but nothing really packed.  Good thing is that we do not have a deadline for getting out of here so we really only have to move the big stuff and everyday stuff (clothes, toiletries, etc) at first.  I am still cleaning out and plan to put a whole bunch of stuff on Craigs list in the next few days.  If any of you are needing something, chances are that I have at least 1 so let me know.  If things do not sell on CL, then they will more than likely end up in the dumpster somewhere.  Here are the latest pictures, made today.

Concrete Pad was poured last week

Needless to say, we are super duper excited about getting moved in.  The yard is calling Ben and my back porch is calling me.

You've come a long way baby!

3 months ago, a special little lady entered our lives.  She showed her might way before she even entered this world.  We are so blessed to have her in our family.

Now weighs about 11.5 pounds.  Not exactly sure, we missed the 2 month check up and will be going this week for the 3 month.  
Loves to eat.  She is now taking 5 ounces at most feedings
Wearing a size 2 diaper
Outgrowing 0-3 months clothes because she is so long.  
Does not like pacifiers, she prefers her fingers.  At least until she gags herself.  
Started sleeping through the night at about 9 weeks.  Most nights it is 10 pm-630am.  
Has the biggest smile where all you see is gums.  
Loves kisses, to be held, and talked to.  
Has big blue eyes.  Her hair is getting darker and most has fallen out (compared to birth)
Loves baths
Adores her brother
Does not like socks, shoes or covers on her feet
Coos and Aahs at everything

Benji lost something

So something happened that is totally not about Ben or Reese but equally blog worthy.

20 years worth!

I can do it!

Deciding where to cut!

Ben cannot believe it!

Locks of Love.  

Ta Da!!
