Where does time go?

Where does time go? My baby is almost 8 months. I have to admit he has been an adjustment compared to how good Brecklynn was, but he is doing so much better now. He loves his big sister so much! She just has to walk in the room and his face lights up. She is the only one that can get such a big smile out of him. I hope this lasts forever!!!


Brecklynn decided to take matters into her own hands a couple of weeks ago and cut her hair. I was at volleyball when I got done I checked my messages and had a message from Isaac, it didn't sound good, so I called him to see what was going on. He started telling me that brecklynn kept pouring water onto the living room floor while she was trying to have a tea party. I started to laugh and he said you won't be laughing in a second he goes onto tell me he had ran into the back room to save his xbox game cause Rykker had woken up and Brecklynn came in and said dad look I am so beautiful. He looked to see a chunk of hair missing in the back of her head! He went into the living room to find the remains of her hair laying all over the living room floor. He was upset with her, but then he said how could he be mad when she was so proud of what she had done. I just had to laugh plus I had about 20 minutes to digest what had just happened. I got home and there was a pretty good size chunk of hair missing from the back of her head, plus she had cut some off the side. The lady that watches her was able to fix it the best we could. We ended up having to do an aline cut with one side shorter than the other. It will grow back so I just have to laugh. Funny girl!

Total Catch Up!!

Oh my goodness it has been such a long time since I posted. Obvioulsy I am no good at this, but thought I would update! The last time I posted I announced that we were having a boy!! Well I have had him! Rykker was born on Sept 16 weighing in at 8lbs 7oz. Big Boy!! He was a pretty easy delivery, three pushes and he was out. He has been a difficult baby! He still does not sleep through the night at 6 months and needs lots of attention. I am not use to this cause Brecklynn was such a good baby and slept through the night at about 7 weeks!! Rykker had jaundiced when he was born so he had to be under the light for a week, which is torture for a new mom!! Brecklynn has been such a good big sister. Showed no signs of jealous and just loves to make him smile. No one can make him smile bigger than his big sister. I love it and am so greatful that she adjusted so well to him. Me on the other hand is still trying to adjust to two kids. I did not think it would be this hard, but it gets better everyday. Rykker is 6 months now and is a big little boy. He is also starting to teeth. Oh the joys of teething. We still love him anyways.
Brecklynn just turned three. She is such a fun little girl. She is a smart little thing too. We pierced her ears for her birthday! We had a joint birthday party with two of her other cousins and I have to say she got spoiled, but she deserved it. She defintiley keeps us on our toes, but we wouldn't have it any other way we love her to death!!

It's a.........

It's a boy!!! We found out in April that our newest edition will be a boy!! I think I was secretely wanting a girl, but when I found out it was a boy I was pretty excited. I think Brecklynn is going to be such a good help. She loves babies. Brecklynn is growing up so fast. She is starting to put words together to form somewhat of sentences. She loves to point out horses and cows in fields as we drive by. She loves animals!!! She got her first war wound this last week. She fell off a chair at the babysitters and had to have a staple in the back of her head and she bruised her ear pretty good. Isaac took her to the doctor to see if she needed stiches and he said that it only needed a staple. The doctor said that he wasn't going to numb the area cause it would hurt worse for the 4 shots to numb the area so he said 1,2,3 and then he stapled the area. Brecklynn did not even flinch or cry. The doctor looked at her and said did it hurt and she said yes. She is one tough cookie!

New Addition

Well if you don't already know Brecklynn is going to be a big sister. I am due somewhere between Sept 20th-28th. We are very excited but nervous. There are days that I wonder what in the world I am doing. This pregnancy has been very different from Brecklynn. With Brecklynn I was a little sick, but I would be fine after I ate something. This one I usually feel nauseas all day long. I keep getting told that maybe this one is a boy. Either way we will take whatever we get.

Wow, where in the world does time go? I am trying to think of what has happened over the past 7 months. I have switched jobs and now work for an engineering company as the receptionist. I have also gone back to school to get my medical transcriptionist license, so that I will hopefully be able to stay and work from home. We also bought our first house in June!! It has been so nice to live in our own place and not have people who live above us who sound like a heard of elephants until 2:00 in the morning. Brecklynn is growing up so fast. She started the nursery in August and I thought it was going to be so easy for her, but she has a hard time letting us leave and of course my heart breaks, so I usually end up staying the entire time with her. She is starting to talk a lot more, well she has always been a talker, but now we are starting to understand more and more words each day. She has been fun and hard. She has hit the terrible two's already it seems, but she likes to be goofy which her dad likes. I can't believe she will be two in three months. Where does the time go? Other than that life seems to be good for us.
