Batter up

It finally got warm here for one full day!!! Yesterday 67 degrees went to the park for some baseball.  Today it is raining/snowing again 34 degrees... I guess that groundhog did see his shadow.

We did have a good time though!


Found a new super cool blog.  It has great tips on photography and fun photo challenges.  I thought I'd give it a try! Why not? 

This photo was submitted to the I Heart Faces photo challenge –

Sorry I have not posted in a long time!!!
But don't worry because I come with tons and tons of photos!!!
Fist we have our last snow day, not to confused with the one we are going to get today

Now I did a collage of all the kids. I love collages I think they are so fun and it is much fast/easier to upload one collage then all the photos. And lets face it, the big reason you all look is to see photos of the kids!!!

Here is Keira.. 9 mos, she crawls, pulls herself up on everything, standing by herself and walking around the tables while holding on. She is 19 lbs 3oz (68%) and in the 62% in heights and her head is only at 95%. (still on the charts compared to the boys who were and still are off the charts)

Now Michael who is 3 1/2, and is growing fast.  He writes his name, (sometimes with too many m's or e's). Is really good at playing by himself.  Loves Keira, sometimes we find him in the car holding her hand and singing to her).  Is really good at drawing and making "castles/boats/forts" with blocks!

Last but not least, Jimmy.  Who is now 6 and in Kindergarten.  He is a so smart! Loves math, he is doing multiplication, graphing, division, algebra, and so much more! He reads really well, and is always asking questions about everything! He loves his brother and sister and is often carrying Keira around and is becoming such a  huge help.  You can count on Jimmy to always help.  He still loves playing baseball, football, and riding his bike. And can not wait till Michael grows up a little more so he can really play sports with him.

Birthdays, fall days and fun days

Mike and Keira are the best of friends. Michael always calls her "my Keira" except when she has a dirty diaper, then he repeatedly will say she's "your Keira Mom not mine"
But he sure is a good big brother.
I guess you might wonder how/what she is up to now, well she sits up (see below), she is lunging on her tummy, crawling backwards (darn those wood floors). It is now time to baby proof more. She is also eating like a horse, she has baby food, the baby puffs, some bread, but she does not seem to like applesauce.. crazy I know. 
The other day the boys decide to rake a pile leaves so they could jump in them. They did this all by themselves.  Jimmy maned the rake while Michael took a bucket and filled it up then added it to the pile.  Needless to say there is still a TON more leaves on the floor

 So it is official Jim in now 30 years old!!! Of course if you ask him he says he is only as odd as I am... 28.  But we had his birthday with pumpkin cupcakes and of course a happy birthday banner written by Jimmy and colored by both Jimmy and Michael.
