Just being a girl ALREADY!

She found the lip gloss! AND, she knew exactly what to do with it! Great color too! She's gonna be our prissy one, I think!

Can't Believe It!

The first week of school I got a letter from Noah's teacher saying he was having trouble seeing! When I asked him about it he crossed his eyes and said, "When I do this I can see two of everything!" I said, "Of course you can, quit doing that!" So I put taking him to the doctor off, but he kept saying he couldn't see good! So last Thursday we took him to the Doctor! AND, he needs glasses! He was so excited! He has a stigmatism - his lazy eye is just that, not keeping up with his other eye! The Doctor said we caught it in time and we can get this fixed!

Tada...Noah got his glasses! I think he looks great in them! He keeps looking through them and then holding them up and comparing saying, "Mom, did you know I was kinda blind?" He also told Anna, "You look pretty weird with my glasses off, and you look really pretty with my glasses on!"
And I put them on and yes...he is kinda blind! I just can't believe how big he is getting! I'm so proud for him! And for the record...I GUESS I was wrong! I GUESS!

Wordless Wednesday

Oh, how sweet the light of day,
And how wonderful to live in the sunshine!
Even if you live a long time, don't take a single day for granted.
Take delight in each light-filled hour,
Remembering that there will also be many dark days
And that most of what comes your way is smoke.
You who are young, make the most of your youth.
Relish your youthful vigor.
Follow the impulses of your heart.
If something looks good to you, pursue it.
But know also that not just anything goes;
You have to answer to God for every last bit of it.
Live footloose and fancy-free—
You won't be young forever.
Youth lasts about as long as smoke.
Ecclesiastes 11: 7-10
The Message

For those of you who think Mary is perfect, ya go!

Actually if the truth be known - she is perfect and we just get on her ever last nerve! All I wanted was a picture of all four of them together! I won't tell you how many pictures I took and I'm not happy with ANY of them! But these will do.
I was reminded that Easter is NOT going to be fun and I may need to take pictures of them before the actual day! Otherwise I'll be at church ill as a hornet and completely missing the point of the day!

It started off on a good note! BUT...

Things changed FAST! So fast - I had not even put Isaac in the picture yet!!

This is the best picture I took and when Mary does this she is asking for her passi! She's not happy!
Note to self: Don't try and take family pictures at bedtime!

Here's another picture from my "photo shoot" - The baby torturer! HA! Anna I love you so much! You are the exact replica of Aunt Nini - she was a baby torturer too! And guess what baby she tortured! That's right...ME! With a smile on your face you love these babies to death!!

Mary and Anna
On a side note...I LOVE MY CAMERA! See what I was dealing with last year! Thank you Jason for my camera!

More attempts at the Dr.s office! I'm still not loving it! It's hilarious don't get me wrong but it's not what I'm looking for! Look at Noah pinching Isaac's fat roll!

Individual pictures I can handle! He's my little handsome chunk!! LOVE HIM! He weighed 11 lbs. 10 oz. at 6 weeks old. I think he was 11 lbs. 6 oz. at one month! He's the biggest baby we've had! He grew 5 pounds in 6 weeks! He's got more to love!

And another big deal around here is these two started school! They were so excited!

Noah got the teacher he wanted and he is in class with a lot of his friends. He was reunited with his friend James - he missed being in class with him last year and Hannah Hooten is also in his class! YAY for the Hootens coming to school with us! We are looking forward to a fun year with them! Football games, Fieldtrips, Fall Festival, and parties! Can't wait!

Anna is in Mrs. Vigneulle's class! Her exact words..."I can't be in Mrs. Cvacho's class because she is my Aunt and I would think I didn't have to do anything!" Not sure what gives her the impression she doesn't have to mind family members but whatever! We love Mrs. Vigneulle - Noah had her and she is GREAT! She probably would get a lot of spankings if she was in Mrs. Cvacho's class - from Mrs. Cvacho. Anna was so happy to see her friend Madison in her class again but we do miss Abby Lynn!

We are so thankful that Noah and Anna are at the same school this year! It was a concern of mine when Jason decided to leave! Thank you Lord for another year! THANK YOU!

In May she started trying to stand...

And she mastered standing with help from objects...

June she conquered slowly walking with help...
July she mastered standing alone - but going no where - She could just get up from a sitting position all by herself with no help...

Then...August at 15 months (8 days from turning 16 months) - she took her first steps!

YAY! Mary is officially on the move! We are so proud of you baby girl!

On a side note...these are the kind of friends she has...

When it was looking like she was never gonna walk - Ella Kate didn't leave her behind...she packed her in a stroller and took Mary wherever they needed to go! SWEET!
