my little girl is 6 months (and 7 days) old!!

i can't believe how time has flown!!! it seemed like yesterday i was just going into the hospital to get my csection, and then my 6 weeks off from work drug by and i wanted to go crazy being at home with TWO kids...and i thought that January was so far away! but it's here, and my little girl is so big now. We went to her 6 month appointment on Wednesday, and she is now 16 lbs, 11 oz and 26.5 inches long. i was looking at judah's baby book and he was 18 pounds and some ounces at FOUR months....he was a beast!! she is so little in my mind, but still a big girl i guess. She's healthy and growing like a weed, though, so that is all that matters to me. She loves to play in her exersaucer and doesn't like to be held like a baby anymore because now she's a "big girl"....or so she thinks. :) She rolls over from belly to back and back to belly and even though she isn't crawling yet, she can whip around on her belly to get to what she needs to get to. she is such a sweet baby! she smiles ALL of the time and is always so happy. i think the only time she ever cries is when she's really tired, hungry, or (lately) teething...oh and teething is in full swing i do think! she does have her first two teeth (she got those at about 4 months or so), but they came in relatively easy. now she absolutely has to have one of those frozen teething toys or she will get mad. I can't remember when Judah started getting the rest of his teeth, but her gums are getting pretty swollen, so i think it'll be soon. I love her little gummy smile just like i did with Judahbug...part of me just wants her to stay a baby forever! But at the same time, i can't wait to see who she turns into in the future..she has such a sweet personality, i hope she keeps it. Judah was always the goofy kid, and still is. He is absolutely hilarious and can make anybody's day 1000% better. She just has a twinkle in her eye that makes you feel like you are the best thing she has ever laid eyes on. Such an awesome feeling!!

otherwise, nothing new is really going on.....in a couple weeks, my little boy will be 3. and it has gone by so fast, wayyyyy too fast actually..i remember when he was a bumbling little toddler and just wanted mommy to hold him. it wasn't even that long ago that he wanted me to pick him up and rock him to sleep and sing just one more song to put off going to bed even that much longer. Now he's Mr. Independent off to conquer the world, needing mommy a little bit less every day. it hurts, but it's ok. i still sneak into his room before i go to bed every night and give him a huge hug and kiss. he is so special to me. nothing will ever EVER compare to being a mommy! so many people take it for granted..i'm sure i have even done so at times, but i am very very thankful for such a great baby boy and beautiful girl. They and their daddy make my life complete.



happy six months and´╗┐ then some :)

i've gotta get better at this blogging thing..

like seriously...i haven't uploaded ANY pictures or anything forever!! i used to do so well, but now I've been SO BUSY chasing the kiddos around, that by the end of the night, all i want to do is sleep! i thought it was bad with judah..then he got to where he goes to bed early each night...and granted, mikaela goes to bed pretty early too, but chasing them (him) around all day makes me one tired girl!

all that to say, i will put some new stuff up here soon. i don't even think i've put a thing up on facebook either. i mean, it's almost february....all my friends and people i know are getting ready to pop out babies, so i think i end up just following blogs instead of writing on mine. shewwwww.....

i. need. sleep.
