WooHoo!!!! I think I have finally caught up... Even though I missed the whole summer. LOL! This is one thing I can cross off my long list of "things to do".
Anyways I joined a group called MOPS (Mothers of Preschooler) and am really loving it. I decided to join for a couple of reason...
1. To get Parker away from me and with kids his age
2. To get some "me" time now that I am not at Duke's for the winter
3. To meet some new woman
Well this has really been a great thing for me and Parker. This is my 5th week and Parker finally no longer needs his paci and mimi the whole 2 hours I'm gone. He only cries for a minute which is major progress. I am also learning a lot about how to be a better person, mom, wife and friend. I am so thankful I get to do this for myself. As a Mom I feel like it is always so hard to find a balance. I know this program is not for everyone but I'm glad I joined. :)
Our Parkey Boy is no longer a baby he is officially a BOY... :( I'm not so sure how I feel about this. I really want him to stop growing up so fast. He has changed SO much in the past 2 months now that he is walking/running. He is talking a lot more and becoming a dare devil. The rougher the better with him that is for sure. All of the bruises on his body show for it. The forehead seems to always have a couple. LOL! He is also super sweet and cuddles with me sometimes still. He LOVES his family and follows us everywhere. I adore his personally most of the time. He has become a great sleeper, he loves music and dancing, coloring, doing whatever his sister is doing, cars, soccer, throwing things. His laugh is contagious... We love him so much.
My new favorite picture of our kids. Parker looks so old :(
With the Keus' girls
I LOVE the holidays so much. I feel like it makes us do fun things as a family. Jeremy and I both really like taking the kids to the pumpkin patch every year. I look at these pictures and cannot believe how old our kids are getting.
Kaylee is playing AYSO soccer this year for the first time with her cousin Hanna. She seems to really like it. I'm not so sure that this is her sport but I am happy she is having fun trying. We have had a lot of fun watching the girls play.
The past 6 months have been filled with a lot of wedding fun. My youngest brother Kurty and Kelsey got married in August. In October my sister in law Janelle got married to Alex. I had a lot of fun helping the brides plan the weddings and really enjoyed all the fun festivities (bridal showers, bachelorette parties, dress fittings, etc.) Congratulations to both couples it was an honor to stand by your side. Definitely something I will cherish forever. I am SO happy you found your life partners. LOVE YOU ALL!
