Big Brother

How can you not LOVE this boy? He is the sweetest thing. Our family has been battling being sick for a month now. Last week, Cami was hit pretty hard by a cold. All she wanted to do was lay on the couch. Grant informed me that he was her big brother, and he needed to take care of her. I LOVE that he is so awesome with his sisters, and that he treats them well.

Well, most of the time

Kara's 4 months

I realize that she will be 5 months in 2 days, but I wanted to put up some things that she is now doing. I forgot how quickly they change, and she too is no different. Novemeber 30th, she rolled for the first time. She knew what she wanted to do, and did. The next day, she started going from her tummy to her back. Again, she knew she wanted to roll, and she did it.

I took her in for her 4 month check up last week and she was 12 pounds 13 oz, 23 inches long. I haven't enjoyed the kids doctor down here, and so I took her to a new dr, and all I can say is I love him so much more!

She is still pretty cranky, and wakes up every 2-3 hours during the night. But she does have some good moments during the day. Her hair looks like it is coming in, and it appears to be a strawberry blond. I just look at her, and think, WOW, she does look a lot like me. Hopefully, she won't be the handful that I was.

We love having her around. I'd say Kara loves me the most (so sad, right ;D) and then loves LOVES Grant. But she is getting better with Mark and Cami. Mark is sitting behind me and commented that she tolerates him. I love it! Happy 4 months!

2nd annual Black Frid.... I mean Thursday

OK, this just makes me sad. I feel so bad for the employees who have to work earlier and earlier each year on Black Friday, because of, well me! This year I wasn't going to go, but thought, oh why not?? And SO my wonderful husband agreed to go with me! He even bought us hot chocolate!
They had 2 things (1 thing for each kid) that we wanted to get. So we seperated, and waited. Mark was a good sport about it all.
We had to take Kara with us. Though, I was VERY judgeful of those parents last year who brought their kids out with them, Kara is a really fussy baby and it make me nervous to leave her with people, even Grandma :(. Surprisingly, she did amazing!!! And I have yet to hear from CPS about it, HA HA HA!!!

I did work Friday morning at 4 AM. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, other than being really sick. But then again, I really like my side job.

Here's to another Black Frid.... Thursday!!!
