Eden: 3 Months

Little E is 3 months old.  Cute as pie!  I'm in love with all her smiles and her COOs melt my heart.  The big kids will coo at her and she will talk right back to them.  She mocks them.  It's cute now!  One day I'm sure it won't be so much! 
She is now swatting at her toys - still lots of kicking.  She is coo-ing, holding her head up, and making spit bubbles. 
She lays down about 9:30pm or 10:30pm and will wake up at 2:30am or 3:30am and then at 5am or 6am.  She's SLOWLY getting there.  The good thing is she doesn't want to be awake.  She goes right back to sleep and will sleep in her little bed beside ours.  I am looking forward to a full nights sleep one of these days.  After 5 kids I know it will come!  SOMEDAY!!  But I have to say I'm not too terribly exhausted if I don't go back to sleep in the mornings.  That's the hard part! HA!
All the kids still adore her.  They hate when she cries and we all work together to make her happy!She is definitely a delight.  I wouldn't trade her for the world and I'm so glad she is here!!

VHEE sent Mary a prize telling her they were excited about meeting her and inviting her to a popsicle party after she meets her teacher.  She was so excited to get a prize from school.  I on the other hand HATE that big crayon in our house! HA!

Noah mastered the Lockers!!  Should I mention he was trying to open the wrong locker and Jason had to tell him the right one!  Oops.  Glad we got the extra practice.  I enjoyed distracting him while he tried to open the locker too.  Telling him to hurry, that I thought he was cute, that we were gonna get in trouble if we didn't get to class, etc.  It was fun!

She's got the first day sleepies!!

He's a nut!  I thought about being sad they were going back to school until he came out - ha! 

They pretended to love each other for ONE picture!

Rickwood is always so much fun!!  It was rainy and somewhat cool to swim in "cave" water.  But we did it!  Even me! 






CRIED to do the high dive.  It's a lot higher from up there.  He got too scared.  Better luck next year!

A little scared after the high dive


SO MUCH FUN!  Cannot wait for next year!  Eden will get to have some fun then!

Sweet little Mary Mae is heading to Kindergarten.  We finally got her enrolled.  We had to wait until she could get her 5 year old shots - which were NOT FUN.  Freak out is an understatement!  But that's all over and she is heading to Kindergarten with excitement!!  Just 14 days left!
Such a big girl.
