Family Fun

Our car has been acting up and we took it to the shop today only to find out it was going to cost 5,000 or so to fix it:(( Not worth it since it has 100,000 miles on it. So off we went to find a new car for are growing family. I love the Tahoe, but we need something more fuel efficient. We feel in love with the Ford Flex.. It is really new and looks different from the outside, but the inside is amazing... It is like a limo it has so much room. And it was just the right price. We had to order it so we will not pick it up till Tuesday. I can't wait. The only thing is Nathan will be driving it most of the time. He drops the kids off and picks them up. Then the days I am off he will drive the Audi and I will drive the Flex. I will post pics when we get our look alike woody:))

We got to hang out with the whole family on Saturday and Thanks to the Steger's and my mom for watching the kids buy a new car.

Hunter loves to play with Reese they had the best time with all of Reese awesome toys. Hunter even picked mac&cheese out of Reese's hair for her then picked her up out of the highchair. What a little gentlemen. My mom and sister said they have never seen anything so funny and sweet before. I am so glad all the cousins are close in age it is so much fun for my sister and I.

Pump it UP!!

We went to pump it up today, since Nathan took the day off. It was so much fun. Hunter loves this place we might even have his birthday party here. His favorite thing to do is go down the huge blow up slide. He does this almost the whole time..going down backwards. What a crazy guy. Nathan had fun bouncing around with him and climbing up and down. Parker and I just watched the boys. It was a great afternoon. I love when my husband does not have to work!!

Parker McLaine

2 months.. WOW, I can't believe it has already been 2 months. Time has just flown right bye. My little girl is getting so big. She weight in at 11.5 lbs 50%, 24.5 inches 50%. And I forgot what her head was, but I know it was in the 50% as well. So Parker is adverage all around. She is growing and developmentally right on track. She sleeps 4-5 hours at a time at night so everything is going great. Hunter and Reese love to touch her and try to pick her up. At least they love her!! She loves to smile, coo, and tummy time. She also loves to sleep on her tummy... I know it is not aloud, but she loves it.

Another Day of Daycare

happy at home!!!

Today was Hunter's 3rd day of daycare. Nathan dropped him off and then went to work. I called around 9:30am and they said he was having a rough morning crying on and off. I talked to the daycare director and she suggested bringing him everyday for a couple of hours so he would get used to it. I totally agree it is just on my days off I want to spend all of my time with my lil man. Parker is doing great!! She is happy and content since all of her needs are meet. No complaints from her. I did call one more time that day and he ate some lunch and took an hour nap. I just want my baby to be happy. It is so hard with all this change.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall!!

Parker loves looking in the mirror and smiles. I was trying to get a good picture of her. Here she is our little Miss Parker. Then Hunter wanted a turn of course. Again I really need to work on my photography. I just love my babies.

Day Care

Today was Hunter and Parker's first day of daycare. I have called 3 times and so far Hunter has been upset on and off all day and Parker has cried some. I am very upset and just want to go and hold my babies... I finally went to pick them up at 3:30pm and Parker was crying when I got there and then when I went to get Hunter he was crying at the door. They said every time he went outside he cried at the gate for momma, momma.. Just broke my heart. I cried on the way home and called my mom and asked her if she could stop working and watch my babies. I know they will get used to it and enjoy the other kids. When we got home Hunter was so tired and cranky from not sleeping or eating much the night was not our usual and I had to rock him to sleep. I have not done that in 10 months or so. I can't believe I have to go to work tomorrow and the kids have to go back to daycare. I just pray that they do better tomorrow to make me feel OK with leaving them. It is so hard to leave them. I miss my babies. Oh, and Parker had a hard time breastfeeding last night which made me sad as well.

OK for those of you who don't know I love Chick-fil-a. Hunter loves to play it is clean and fun to get out of the house. I was in town so I met Nathan for lunch at Chick-fil-a. I was walking in and carrying the infant seat and Hunter in the other arm. This little girl around six looked at her mom and asked "Is that octo-mom?" Her mom said, "No" and I just walked inside. It was the funniest thing I have ever heard because I sometimes feel like I have more than two. Then we played and when we were done I was ordering ice cream and Hunter started projectile vomiting all over the counter and me. I ran to the restroom and could not believe what just happened. What a day all for some Chick-fil-a.

Can you say Quack!!

Hunter with the duck's

Daddy and his girl!!

Mommy and her boy.

Hunter eating the bread!!

Hunter loves duck's and knows what sound they make. Tonight we took Hunter to go feed the duck's he was so happy!! He wanted to chase the ducks, go in the water with them and even ate the bread. I could not get to many pics because Nate was holding Parker and I was chasing Hunter so he would not go swimming. So fun.

MOM of two...

Turn away for a second and this is what happens too cute to yell at him with that smile...
Hunter reading his book with his famous concentrated look:))

Parker enjoying her playtime:))

So last week was my first full week with no one to help me...It was quite stressful at times... I wish my mom did not have to go back to work everything seems so much easier with her around to help. We miss our Nana. Did I mention my mom does everything from entertaining the kids to all house hold chores. It is awesome. I had some very crazy days and I can hardly even remember how many diapers I changed or who did what. I was able to capture some of our moments together.. Hunter has been getting a little more independent. However, when he wants to do something he does not understand why mommy can't or will not let him. He is used to us going outside to swim, leaving the house to meet people and doing fun things. Unfortunately with a newborn it is hard to do some of those things... Luckily, when my husband gets home he caters to Hunter and takes him to the park and plays golf with him in the backyard. I was able to go over to my sister's house on Thursday and we went to Chick-fil-a and played at her house. It was so much fun. Hunter can say (Eesse) and loves to play with her. I am so glad we are so close and do everything together she is my best friend:))
Hunter loves to play with his new vaccum, eat peanut butter, give his sister kisses, put her diapers away in the diaper geinie, swim outside, do anything outside, and be with his fav mommy.
He is saying lots of words: up, golf, ball, dadada, momma, papa, nana, eese (reese), paw (parker), and lots of others around 20 words.. I am to tired to think of them all...
Parker is cooing and smiling today I layed her in her crib on her stomach for tummy time and she rolled over to her back. This is the first time she has rolled over I could not believe it, so I tried it again and sure enough she can roll over form tummy to back. We had to go to the doctor today, because she was sick with lots of mucous and congestion. Of coarse we thought it was viral, but wanted to make sure since she is only 7 weeks. We left the doctor with nothing, it is viral.
Random post just had to get everything in that I can remember since I have been to tired to blog. I will get better.

Parker and Mommy

Hunter does not want a picture with daddy.

Nathan's parents came in town this weekend to spend some time with their grand kids it was so fun. We went out to eat on Friday and got to have our favorite Rita's!! Then we got home, got the kids to bed and went out to visit and have a beer with our neighbors they are so nice:)) They also have two kids and she is a stay at home mom. She said she could help me anytime.. Just what I need a friend to help and our kids can play. Yes!! Then on Saturday I was able to get a goood long nap in while the grandparents played with Hunter and watched Parker. The boys took Hunter to a fun zone and the girls took naps. Then we grilled out and played outside. On Sunday we did a little shopping and then the had to leave it was so sad. Hunter really bonded with them and loves to play with grandma and grandpa. He was giving them kisses and almost left with them. Thank you so much for a great weekend.. Wish ya'll lived closer.

My Uncle's Wedding

Resse and Cristin
NaNa and Hunt

Parker, Erin, Cristin and Callie

Parker McLaine

This weekend I went with the babies my mom, Reese, and Cristin to Dallas for my uncle's backyard wedding. Nathan went to his 10 year high school reunion. I wanted to go with him, but we did not have a babysitter for lil Parker and she is still breastfeeding. So I went and had fun with my family instead. It was a fun/challenging weekend. We stayed up late and only went for the day. Plus with all three little ones on a 4 hour car ride things get a little crazy.. Overall it went smoothly. My sister, mom and I had alot of time catching up on our long road trip. We stopped a couple of times at play/rest areas to give the kids a break. I did not get as many pictures as I wanted and since Nate was not around I don't have any with me..Oh, well maybe next time.

Parker 6 weeks

Parker is also growing fast she is smiling, and starting to coo. She is mostly a happy baby sometimes fussy at night right before bed. I think she gets gassy. Poor baby girl. She is such a great edition to our family. When she cries Hunter points to wherever she is and I have to go take care of her immediately. Hunter is a big helper he gets her binky, softy, diaper, and loves to give her pats and kisses. He tries to sing rock a by baby to her as well. Parker is very interested in Hunter and I pray they grow up to be best buddies. Parker eats every 3-4 hours and is awake 4 hours during the day. She loves tummy time and can really lift her head up high. I mainly pump and give her the bottle, but at night I breast feed. It seems to calm her down and soothe her. I am very lucky to have my mom helping me almost everyday. When she is not here it is very hard and sometimes stressful. Thanks MOM you are the best mom around. I hope I can be just like you.

15 months

Hunter went to his 15 month appointment. Wow I can't believe he is growing so fast. His stats Height 32.6 inches 90% Weight 22.4 lbs. 20%. He is one lean mean fight machine.. His ear tubes are doing great and he is meeting all his developmental milestones. He is talking and saying lots of words. He is running and when I say running this kid is fast. Every time we are out in public people tell us he should be a track star. He knows where his head, eyes, nose, belly button, ears, knees, toes, and tongue are. He tries to sing songs with us, but they are not very clear he does the hand motions to the wheels on the bus, if your happy and you know it, and head shoulder knees and toes. His vocabulary is around 20 words. He knows what I am asking him to do and most of the time follows directions. Not always... I do not have a perfect son. He is into everything and very mischievous. He loves cars and always wants to drive. Recently he started wanting to take showers as well. My baby is growing up way to fast.

Peanut Butter

Need I say more. My child loves peanut butter, he will point to the pantry then we get in there and he only wants the peanut butter. Just like his mommy. So today I let him have fun and dig in. So precious. Parker will soon love peanut butter as well.
