My three amigo's!

Having three kids has been extra hard this week. I just can not find the energy that I need to keep up. Connor wants to go outside, while kahlan wants to play a game, cole needs to be fed and changed. Someone always has to wait and they look so sad about it. I watch people with only one child and I can't help but feel a little jealous. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't give up any one of my kids for anything, but I see someone with one child and they are allowed to be so focused on that kid and that relationship. I feel like I am constantly trying to squeeze in a little one on one time with each of them so they don't feel like a number in the line up. I am done venting now. Things to love about my kids:

He loves to hug
He will always stop what he is doing to tell me he loves me
He is curious and ready to learn
He is my helpful child

She is my only girl and does a great job being my princess
We hold a special bond! She makes me feel like she loves me just a little more than everyone else
She is sweet natured with a bit of an attitude kinda like her mom
She's not afraid to take up for herself. She's no follower
He will always be my baby
He welcomes me every morning with a smile
He is patient as if he knows mommy has her hands full
He loves a good cuddle

I am blessed!

Two Big Events

Well we have had two big events around here in the last few days that I wanted to share with everyone. On thursday, June 19th my little Cole rolled over for the first time. I have relized it really doesn't matter if it is your first child are your third you are just as excited when they accomplish a milestone. The below pics are seconds after he rolled over, I know its not as good as the moment it really happened but he never gave me notice he was about to do something so cool.

This saturday Connor had his trophy ceremony for T-Ball. We all met at Dogwood park and they let the kids swim, eat, and get there little trophy's. The kids all had a great time. Connor was so proud when he recieved his trophy. He came home and put it on his shelf above his bed like it was the most important thing he had ever been given.

Swimming Fun!

We usually try to do some kind of family entertainment on the weekend, and now with gas prices it takes our entertainment budget just to get to the activity so this weekend we drove to my aunts house in minden and went swimming for free. We had such a great day! I thought I would never get Connor out of the pool, and at the end of the day it's just about spending time together. Check out our fun pics!

Even though Cole is not four months old until June 6th he had his check up on Friday, and he is doing pretty good. He weighs 13 pounds and is 23 1/2 inches long. He is really starting to catch up. The doctor is having a physical therapist come to our house next week to evaluate Cole to see if he is in need of some therapy. He is still not showing a whole lot of head control, and the doctor thinks that his muscle problems he has been having in his neck could be impacting his control and that perhaps some therapy would help. Besides that he is doing great. He is such a happy and content baby. He is very layed back and I really enjoy everything about him.
