Baby Makenzie is here

Melanie and Ryan's baby girl, Makenzie has arrived. She was 8 lbs 6 oz and looks a lot like her sister Mariah. Carter is loving all these girls.

Updates on Alexis and Carter

Alexis has been complaining about being tired a lot so when the doctor heard a heart murmur we went to a heart specialist and everything was fine. It was just an innocent heart murmur which made me feel much better.
As for Carter he has gotten another bilateral ear infections so this time the did 2 shots a day for 3 days and it still didn't seem to clear it up. He is now going to go to an ENT to get checked out. Probably will need tubes but if it helps I am all for it.

Alexis- 2 Year & 1 month

Alexis has had a pretty good temperment but lately she has been a handful and is getting a little jealous of Carter. She wants to be carried and has tantrums for attention. She is speaking so well and can make full sentences. She is learning spanish in school and when I picked her up from school she was so excited and told me "I speak spanish". She also loves her crocks that her friend Davis gave her because he out grew them and she wants to wear them everywhere.

Carter- 10 months

Carter is now 10 months and is still commando crawling but is now pulling up on everything and can get himself down which is nice. He is so loving and will give me kisses (open mouth) and give hugs to me. He loves his sister and thinks she is so funny. He still claps and will wave every now and then. He still has 6 teeth but I think 2 more are coming in.
Carter has to go to the eye/ear doctor this week because he has already had 3 bilateral ear infections and his tear duct have been clogged since birth. However I feel this week his eyes haven't been watering like they use to.

After the zoo and naps we had a playdate at Rebecca's house. Alexis now talks about Rebecca all the time because she pushed her on the swing.

Fun Day at the Zoo

The kids had a blast at the zoo. They didn't only enjoy the animals but they got to ride the train and Alexis got to play on the playground. However I was exhausted.

Alexis loves school

This picture was the night before school and Alexis wanted to wear her backpack because she was so excited about school. She loves telling me what she did at school when I pick her up. Alexis and Carter goes once a week for 3 hours and it is nice Mommy time.

Daddy's Birthday Weekend

Daddy had a good birthday weekend with his kiddies. We had a nice walk to breakfast at J. Christopher's in the morning then lunch outside which it was beautiful and also we took the kids to the park. However we also had to do some house packing since we will be moving before you know it.

Ma Ma at 9.5 months

This morning Carter looked at me and finally said the words to make my heart melt: "Ma Ma". It was so sweet and so clear. He continues to babble and has been saying "Da Da" since he was 6 months old. Carter can also get himself in a sitting position easily now from his stomach and will pull up to his knees but won't pull to standing yet. He also is holding his bottle which is nice and he just eats table food now because he has no interest in baby food. Carter also has 6 teeth and has another 2 coming in.

So much LOVE

Well recently we moved the kids to our Big Tub and they have so much fun in it. Also Carter is out of his bath seat so he just swims around in the tub. He is going to be our fearless kid. As for Alexis she just wants to be hugging him, kissing him or holding his hand all the time. She is so motherly.

Free Entertainment

This was a fun morning with a bunch of sick kids. How knew that a laundry basket could be so much fun.

Updates on the Kids sickness

Well Alexis got strep last week but seems to be feeling great however 2 weeks ago Carter had a bilateral ear infection and an eye infection and it came back so he is on some stronger medicine this time. During all this I got a viral infection and then laryngitis. But since Carter's ears and eyes are having trouble with drainage he is going to have to see an ophamalagist.

A Yorkie for the Day

We found a yorkie running around the streets in our neighborhood but didn't have a tag on her collar so we brought her in and the kids loved her. Alexis named her princess but when Todd got home he had signs made and the owner that night came and got her. A least it was entertainment for the day.
