Holy Smokes Grace is 4 Months!

Grace at 4 months!

Ok Ok i know that i am so behind on this! Grace turned 4 months old on the 13th but hey that is what happens with you have 2 kids!

So, what has been going on in our house?! What hasn't been going on that seems to be a simpler question! Well, Blase finally after almost 2 weeks (and almost kicked out of swim) learned how to swim! It was not a simple feat by any stretch of the imagination! He ended up working with Terry one on one till he got his confidants up and then the last 3 days went back to his teacher. He is more confident with himself and can "swim" to the wall from a pretty good distance! They both recommend that we enroll him in another 2 week session. So i will be in line tomorrow to get that all squared away. They both also recommend that we get him in either Terry or Elizabeth's class because he already knows them. Oh and also on Monday, he was crying that he could not go to the pool! (opposed to the crying to not wanting to go to the pool!)

Grace is doing great! She went to the Dr on Tuesday and she is in the 50th percentile for weight (14 pounds 15.5 ounce) and then in the 92nd percentile for height (26 1/4 inches) I don't know where my kids get their height cause Jason and I are both short!
She did great with her shots and was not to pleased with the nurse! She was eating her bottle when they got her so it took a minute to figure out what had happened but she was not pleased! Dr. Neilson said that i can pierce her ears whenever i want! (Wahoo!!!)

I have been busy i picked up 2 day shifts at the store. I usually work on Wednesday morning but then i picked up today for my Mom so she could go to Michael and Jessica's to help watch Kalen and Lucas for them! So that was nice but I'm really tired!

Well that's about all that's been going on with us! I'm trying to figure out how to get a video from my Iphone onto our Mac and then on to this so you can see Blase "swimming" so as soon as i figure out how to do that i will post it! Here are some pics from Grace's 4 month shoot with Mommy! :)

Red, White, and Chill!

Happy Belated 4th of July! We had a nice relaxing day! But a busy weekend. On Friday, Blase spend the night at my Mom and Dads so it was just Jason, Grace, and Myself. We had a nice night and he convinced me to put Grace in the cities "Cute Baby Contest" {lol my first pageant with Grace!} I was going to wait till next year but he really wanted me to do it since he is more active with the Chamber and it was run by them. So, Saturday morning I got up and got Miss Grace ready for her big day! Well, long story short she won 3rd place for her age! {now that i have gotten a taste i love them!!} Jason keeps telling me no Toddlers and Tiaras! {I totally agree no glitz pageants but maybe some more in the future!}
Saturday, afternoon we headed over to my Grandmothers for a BBQ for the 4th! It was nice and King Blase ran them ragged! Boy I thought that he got away with a lot at my parents! He has them all wrapped! {We often wonder what we did before the kids because they entertain us so much!}
Sunday, we just relaxed and I watched the closing arguments of the Casey Anthony Trial {ugh I'm going to be lost when its over} In the afternoon when Jason got home he was mowing the lawn and discovered two kittens in our garage! We are so not cat people. We put them back hoping that mom would return. She never did :( and after asking everyone we knew we were faced with the choice of having to bring them to the shelter. But we finally found them a home much to the disappointment of my son.
Monday, my dad came by to pick up Blase for a BBQ that Disney was hosting for cast members! Blase was thrilled to get to hang out with his Bobo! {he keeps telling me that Bobo misses him!} I had gotten a call from Marie that she was going to be in town and really wanted to see us and meet Grace. So i told her that Blase would be gone but Grace and I would be home. So she came over and got to see Grace and Jason when he got home from work. Then around 5 Blase showed up. I said to Dad wow you guys must have had a great time. Only to find out that they have been home at his house. Apparently he was misinformed and it was not a BBQ you had to bring your own food!! LOL So they swam in the pool for awhile and then headed back home to make pancakes and play! We had talked about going to see the fireworks in town, since its walking distance. But the kids were both asleep by 8 so we ended up just hanging home so Jason could study and I watched tv!
Today, Blase started swim lessons. I have taken him in the past. We did the mom and tot classes for 2 years and then this year since he is 3 he was moved up into level one! I was so excited because that means that i don't have to get in the pool!!! He did great! He went underwater when the teacher told him to and he did everything that he was told! My baby is such a big boy!
That is about all that is going on in our house! Hope everyone had a Happy and Safe 4th

Grace out cold on 4th of July!

Holy Whiny 3 Year Old!

So we have had another busy week! Jason had a meeting on Monday that he was in charge of for his work. Then on Tuesday, I had to work at night at the restaurant. Luckily, on Wednesday Jason said that he would watch the kids so I got to work a morning shift at the store! Which was really nice! When i got home around 4 the kids were still down for their naps and Jason had already had dinner planned! It was not until Blase woke up that we saw the drastic difference in his behavior for us! Jason said that they were both really good (Luckily Blase only asked for me once or twice). Then he awoke!! It's like he saw me and a flip went off in his head. Full whiny mode! Everything was a fight and he was just whining about EVERYTHING!! Jason said that he was not like that at all during the day! Yesterday, Jason had to work (even though it was his day off) he had to do something for his boss. So I planned to go to the park with Kathryn and Olivia! I was temped a number of times to just call her and tell her forget it! Everything was a fight! From picking his clothes to going potty before we left! We finally get out of the house and stop at DD to get mommy her coffee....And as if the day was not crappy enough my debit card was not working!!! AHHH I NEVER have cash! So now I'm digging through my car to find money to pay! At least I had some change in the car to pay! Get to the park and thank goodness Kathryn was there! (her day was going about the same!) (thank goodness I'm not the only one!) And of course my kid is the moocher of everyone elses food! Well Mommy packed a bottle and stuff for Grace but I did not pack anything for Blase! Ugh Bad Mommy!
Then our new problem began... Kathryn calls me Danielle! Duh my friends don't call me Mommy...Well the parrot heard this and started calling me Danielle as soon as we got home! Are you serious?!?! So at first i will admit it was funny! But that got old fast! Jason found the humor in it! After dinner, Jason and I planned our attack on the food stores! (going on my own with 2 kids is not an option anymore!) We loaded up the car got our coupons and headed to Publix and Winn-Dixie! What a sight we were! 2 carts one for Blase and the food and then one for Grace!! LOL we get home put the food away and then the fight about bedtime starts! Thankfully it was a short lived battle and both kids were in bed by 8:30!! Haha Parents-1 Kids-0
Now i was hoping that when my sweet charming little 3 year old would awake and things would go back to normal!
Oh of course not! Everything thus far has been a battle! Picking undies, what to eat, where to play! I know its a stage but he better get out of it soon or Mommy is going to need help! LOL
On the upside my Mom is willingly taking Mr. Fussy tonight (Blase is missing his Bobo) so he can see my Dad in the morning and then we will all meet up at my Grandmothers for a 4th of July (a couple days early) BBQ!
Hope that everyone has a Safe and Fun holiday weekend!
:)
