Happy Easter!

The girls and I colored easter eggs while Nate was gone! Halle was so funny. Every time she pulled an egg out of the dye, she would say, "This is so amazing, TOTALLY amazing." It was fun to see their reactions and how excited they get. Here they are showing off their colorful eggs!

We had a great Easter. The girls were so excited to find their Easter eggs and baskets. I tried many times to take a good picture of them in their Easter dresses, but as you can see it was hard. They had to wear their sunglasses in the pictures or make silly poses. They are so much fun and I am sad that Spring Break is over. I love having them home! Oh well, only six more weeks left of school! YEA!
(Sorry: LOTS of pictures to come!)

And of course, I couldn't leave off our little Jaxston. We still can't get enough of him! The girls love him and when they get home, they are no longer so excited to see me...they run to find him! Let's just say that he is spoiled and loves to be held! That's okay with me though, I LOVE this stage when they cuddle into you and go to sleep. Just don't look at my house, because it is usually messy! It used to bother me more, but I am a little more relaxed about having a spotless house. As my mom always tell me, "It will wait for you." But babies just grow up too fast so I am just enjoying every minute I have with him! He makes it so easy to just adore him. He is a good baby so far. He has slept though the night a lot of nights, but if he wakes up it is only once. He is very mellow and SO lovable! We love you Jaxston!

My little toothless girl......

Brinley FINALLY lost her first tooth on Monday and then the second one came out today! It was like Christmas for her. She is the ONLY one in her school class that hasn't lost any teeth! She was so excited to go to school and get to put a tooth on the chart. She was so worried that she wouldn't loose any teeth during the school year. It's about time, she is 7 years old! I do have to say that it made me a little sad when she lost it....that means she really is getting older! These two teeth have been loose for the last few months! She twisted them and finally they popped out. Here are a few pictures......before and after the lost teeth!

2 weeks already???

I can't believe that our baby is already two weeks old! The times sure does fly when they are finally here! I have just loved having this little guy in our home and the sweet spirit that he has brought. I was a little worried about having a boy because I have bonded so much with my girls. But I just have LOVED him and he has been a very good baby. He still gets his nights and days mixed up but he goes right back to sleep during the night after I feed him. He is so much fun and our girls love having a new baby just as much. We just can't get enough of him! I took him to his two week checkup today and he wasn't quite back to his birth weight, but the doctor wasn't too worried. He weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. and that was what he was at when we left the hospital. He did have jaundice and he had to be under the lights for a few days. I was so sad, I cried just to see him laying there and not being able to hold him. Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks!
