Our Week

Chase cut another tooth. For a total of two teeth. And counting :)

He is saying "DaDaDaDa" so much now. (AND I have video proof!)

It rained here on Easter :( Boooo to that.
We had to have an indoor egg hunt and I had to forget about the cute little "springy" Easter outfits I bought for the kids! Darn it!
They certainly enjoyed what the Easter Bunny brought them, though.
Kaelynn got Barbies, play dough, bubbles, sunglasses, a princess chair, books and candy. Dallas got a Buzz Lightyear toy, play dough, bubbles, sunglasses, a Toy Story chair, books and some candy.
They were very excited!

I had to take Kaelynn to the dermatologist on Thursday. She has had a bad rash in her diaper area for quite some time and her regular doctor had been stumped about what it was. The dermatologist said her rash was an infection in her skin and hair follicles? Sounds weird huh? Anyway, he prescribed her a cream and an oral antibiotic and it looks 95% better already.

I finally got a new phone! I had totally been living in 2003 with my old crappy cell phone. Lol. (Not really... it was a newer phone that I just got in December but certainly wasn't anything fancy.) Anyway, I have now moved up in the technology world and I have a BlackBerry! I have been playing with it like crazy and I love it. I love all the apps and things I can download for it. I can now use Twitter and Facebook a lot easier so that's nice. Go ahead and follow me, by the way! :)

Tonight we're going to have a yummy dinner and watch the season opener for the Giants!

Goooo Giants!!!

1st tooth!

Chase Michael cut his very first tooth last night. On his 7 month birthday! No photographic proof yet. I was just very excited to share this. I knew he was teething but it still took me by surprise since Dallas and Kaelynn didn't get teeth until 9 months. Very exciting. But makes me sad to see he sure is growing up!

That is all. :)

I ♥ Faces Challenge. Dramatic B&W

This will be my first time entering a challenge at I Heart Faces. I've wacthed a lot of the challenges from afar and admired all the photos. I've been practing my picture taking skills lately and I *think* I've been getting better. Lol. I've said before though, that I can't wait to get a better camera.
Here is my entry for the dramatic black and white theme.

Dallas Cody 3 1/2 years old

Our first born is getting so big! It's kind of hard to believe how old he is. Seems like yesterday he was just my little baby. Now he's already a big brother times two. He plays that role so well. He loves his siblings to pieces. He's such a sweet, loving boy. So smart and independent. He's crazy and goofy and cracks us up every day. He loves to act silly and play with his daddy. He can't wait to start school and tells me all the time how excited he is to go and (in his words) "paint and play and see my teacher." He can say and recogize all of his letters as well as his numbers and counting all the way up to twenty. He knows all his shapes and colors, and I could swear he has the vocabulary of a 5 year old.
I can't wait for all the things to come with him. It's so sad that our babies have to grow up, but so exciting at the same time. Very bittersweet. I can't wait for his first day of school, his first baseball game, watching him learn how to ride a bike.

We really couldn't have asked for a better first child to add to our family. I love to brag about my big boy! :)

Pictures AND Words!

I know there has been tons and tons of pictures and barely any words here lately. I've just been so into photography lately and learning how to take better photos and edit them as well. I don't have a really fancy expensive camera (maybe someday) so I try with what I have. You couldn't possibly be sick of seeing cute stuff like this anyway

RIGHT?! Hehe :)

Anyway, besides taking tons of pictures of my gorgeous kids, we've been quite busy. The kids are sick right now. Particularly Chase. Poor baby has a bad cough and runny nose. It runs, then gets stuffy. I know I hate that so I can imagine he's not a big fan of it either. He's actually been pretty good though. He's a tough guy!

We've also been busy making some financial decisions. Dallas was scheduled to go back to work a couple of weeks ago after his paid family leave was up. Well, his work has gotten very slow so he is currently laid off. It's happened before but usually within a month or two something opens up for him to go to another location. He gets unemployment but it's not nearly what he normally makes so we're trying to take some steps in the right direction. I'm not going to say what specifically yet, but I may be starting something soon so I can help out with our finances AND stay home at the same time. I feel a bit excited about making a bit of money to help out but still getting to stay home with my babies and watch this cute little butt grow!
