Lots of New Things Going On!

I know I have been slacking lately on keeping all of our loved ones up to date on our family! I have been so busy lately...I will try not to make too many excuses!

Reese is getting SO big! She is now in her BIG GIRL BED! The whole family went to Sea World and Fiesta Texas a month ago. There were 8 adults and 6 children 6 and under in our group! We sure were tired by the end of that trip. Anyway, while we were there, Reese slept on the pull out couch in our hotel room alone. We told her that if she was good she could get her big girl bed like her friend Megan had. She was very excited and did great! So when we got home Danny converted her crib into her toddler bed. She has never gotten out of it in the middle of the night, (which was my biggest fear) or had any other problems since.

This week has been especially difficult for me because she decided that she does not want me or Danny to take her to bed anymore. We have both made a HUGE effort to always take her to bed together every night since she was a newborn, except if Danny or I were out of town. She announces that she wants to go by herself. She picked up her blanket, gave us hugs and kisses and went off to bed. She closed her door and we watched her in the video monitor just climb into bed and go to sleep. She has been doing this for almost a week. It just breaks my heart to see my baby girl grow up so quickly!

She has also been saying the cutest things lately. The other day, Remme was crying in the car and Reese looks at her and shouts, "You are making my ears fall off!" Also, now when she hears someone say "Hey!" she says, "Hay is for horses!" Too cute! She really has such a cute personality!

Remme is almost 8 months! I can't believe it. It is going by quicker than Reese's first year. She is sitting up really well and this week I caught her on her hands and knees rocking back and forth. I know I should not compare but, Reese didn't start crawling until she was 10 months old. She was very happy with Danny and I bringing her everything! So Remme has really gotten so big in fact she is HUGE! She weighs 20 pounds. She is hugging and starting to give kisses. I will post pictures of them soon!

As for Danny, last month was a record month for him! It was his largest month in sales ever! I am so proud of him. With everything going on in the world today, he is working harder to make sure that his family is cared for.

Today is our 4 year wedding anniversary! We spent the evening hanging out together as a family. Which was phenomenal because I am usually working after he gets home, since I have been playing with the kids all day. We ordered in and read books to Reese and Remme played. Danny and I will go to dinner this weekend together to celebrate by ourselves.

Reese is just the most adorable thing ever! A few days ago, Reese was getting ready to go to her preschool for the day. She ran in her room and told me that she wanted to wear her sunglasses to school, like her friend, Emily. (aka Emawee) I told Reese that Everyone is special and that Emily is special because she gets to wear glasses to make her see better! I explained that her glasses were different than sunglasses... I told her again that everyone is special in some way. I asked her, "Do you know why Daddy is special?" She said with the upmost certainty, "Daddy has one hand!" I then said, "THAT'S RIGHT!" I couldn't believe that popped out of her mouth. We have never sat down and had a talk about it before. So then I said, "Why is Pa-Pa special?" She replied, "Because Pa-Pa has TWO HANDS!" I told her that she was right, but that he is also very special because he get to ride in a special chair and give rides to her and Remme. It went on and on! It was the cutest thing ever! Now she goes around saying that she is special because she has two hands! Kids...gotta love them!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Reese and I always make cupcakes for Daddy on Valentine's Day! This year Reese was in charge of the sprinkles. We had fun making them and she just could not get the concept of letting them cook while we ate dinner. She wanted to eat them right then and there. She also put the muffin papers in the cupcake pan! What a helper! We all spent the evening at home together and had a awesome steak dinner! Danny did a great job on dinner and then we watched a movie! It's been a long time since we got to sit down just the two of us for a tv show, let alone a whole movie!

Remme is 6 MONTHS!

My baby girl is 6 months old! I just can't believe how big she is getting. I feel like this time is just flooding by and I know I will never get it back. I just wish they could stay young forever! These children are what makes the world turn for me! I think I need another... :)
Remme got this toy for Christmas and LOVES it! This can really buy me some time to play with Reese, take a shower, or cook dinner!!! This has to be the best toy ever!

Big sister Reese loves playing with it too! She loves her baby sister Remme-Roo so much!

Growing Like A Weed

Remme is almost 6 months! Wow how time flies!!! It is so sad. My babies are getting so big! Danny was holding Remme the other night and I walked by and saw this out of the corner of my eye! I just started laughing so hard. Then I thought, " I am sure glad we are not out in public...people would think we need help buying Remme some clothes that fit!" I just thought it was so funny seeing her little toe poking through a hole like that. Needless to say, she has new pj's now!

Remme and Benjamin

Remme (5 months) and her boyfriend, Ben(3 months)! Ben is my friend Sherri's son and they come over to play one afternoon. Just keep in mind that Remme is a big girl... Ben is the same size!!!!! Watch out boys, she is already grabbing at shirts!
Also, no Remme did not get hit in the face...she would spit up or drool at night and lay in it, so her cheek kept getting chapped! All better now.
