So it's been over a year since my last post. I guess #3 will do that to ya :). I used to be so good writing on my blog. Over the past year I have severely neglected it. I need to go back and add all the pictures and I'm bummed I have missed so many fun stories. This will be a huge post that I am going to try to write down the memories of the past year that I can remember. I guess this is what you do when you can't sleep.
Logan -- 21 months old. I can't believe this little peanut is going to be 2 soon. He is a total sour patch child. It is super sweet moment and totally sour the next. He is so cute and can get away with murder because of it. He still hardly eats anything. He does like popcorn, broccoli, popsicles, drinkable yogurts, strawberries, blackberries and whatever is on his dad's plate.
He says Papa(grandpa), Pop pop (popsicle), ball, shoe, no, mo (more), mommy, mama(grandma), broom broom (vroom for a motorcycle), wa wa (water), ju (juice), bike, owie, ca ca (gross), pee, hi, bye, bite and fu ball (football).
He loves motorcycles, four wheelers and anything with an engine that goes. He loves to ride bikes, be outside, throw balls, play with toy guns and just be a boy. He absolutely loves dogs and thinks they are his best friend. He has started to wrestle with other kids even though they have no idea what he is doing. He loves to read books. He will bring me multiples books and sit while I read them to him. He loves to watch mickey mouse. He is a great dancer and loves to groove to songs.
He sleeps great - 7pm to 7/8am. He loves his sisters and face timing with his grandparents. He basically has started potty training himself and asking to go #2 on the potty. He has learned how to give kisses and great hugs. His dad is his best friend and a close 2nd is papa. He is really possessive with Tyler and I and gets really mad when the girls try to cuddle with us. He claps when we pull into a parking lot that has fast food or cupcakes :). He has no fear and jumps off the couch or directly into the swimming pool. He loves water and loves to play in any water he is allowed in. He loves to push his lawnmower and go around mowing with his dad. He loves for his dad to take him for rides in his truck and let him drive. He will run sprints in the street with Tyler while the girls are working out. He is so much fun and I love him to pieces.
Brynlee -- 6 years old (almost 7). Bryn reminds me and everyone else of her birthday, daily! She is in frist grade. I basically skipped over her Kindergarten year. We loved her kindergarten teacher, Mrs. E. She was a perfect fit for both Bryn and I. Last year in K, Bryn was made fun of for her hands for the first time, at least that I'm aware of. Kids are at her table in class started calling her 4 fingers. She was so sad she pretended to be sick and called me to come get her. Once she was in the car I asked her why she was sick. She said her tummy hurt. When she found out her dad was supposed to pick her up at school that day she asked to go back. I told her she couldn't because she was sick. She then told me she wasn't sick, but sad because kids were making fun of her. We talked to the teacher and the special education teacher, Mrs. H, and it was taken care of that day. After that Bryn was never treated any different or called names. At least to our knowledge. Brynlee is loving first grade. She is a pretty good speller. She is working on reading better and learning her sight words. She is using touch point numbers to learn math. She does really well in school. All the teachers tell me that she is super sweet, concerned for others, shares with others, caring and a great student and friend. I'm glad to hear that she is like that at school because she isn't very nice to Makenna or Logan. She struggles with fighting with her sister and she is very concerned about what others get to do and what she is doing.
Bryn learned to ride her bicycle this past year. She is a bike riding fool now. She loves to watch tv, workout with her dad, play soccer, play with her best friend Lily, eat all sorts of junk food, loves gum, hates cleaning her room, changes her clothes 10 times a day, loves dr. pepper and talks in a creepy voice :). She still sleeps with Minnie Mouse every night. She has a fun, spunky, diva, confident, crazy, stubborn, fiery attitude. She doesn't let anything hold her back. She can do anything she puts her mind to. She had a hand check up with Dr. R today (oct 1, 2015) and he told her she can do whatever she wants. She is such an amazing little girl. God gave her a fiery, independent personality and she uses it to her advantage. She loves to go to the lake and has learned to be pulled on the wake surf board. She loves the beach and playing in the sand and boogie boarding. Cohen is still her boyfriend, kinda because he moved to Tulsa. Over the past year she only talked about Cohen and marrying him. Now she likes Hunter and Holden. Hunter is the younger brother of one of Makenna's friends. Bryn is a great soccer player. She gets upset when coach puts her in on defense. He likes her there because she is a great defender. She wants to be forward because she loves to score.
Her primary teachers told me they love having Bryn in class. I was scared to know why....haha. They said she always has funny things to say. Then I got more scared. I guess that day kids were being wild and crazy and Bryn turned to them and said "come on guys....you act like you have never been here before.' She always has fun one liners. I love her so much.
Makenna -- 9yrs old. Makenna is in 4th grade now. Her 3rd grade year was a bust. Partly because she had a young teacher that didn't know how to handle the class and partly because the class was full of kids that were hard to handle. I would like to forget 3rd grade happened for Makenna. She did have the landrun and loved that. Her grandma Jan made her an awesome dress and it was so funny that it matched her friend Sage.
Makenna loves her teacher. Kenna is learning a lot. She is super smart. She is getting straight A's, loves to read, passes most of her spelling tests and is working on getting better in math.
She has being doing more chores around the house and it's been a huge help to me. She does the dishes (loads and unloads), vacuums, helps pick up things and will help me with Logan. I can't believe she is almost 10 years old.
Her best friend is Alexis. She loves to ride bikes around the neighborhood will Lola and Alexis. Alexis has gone to activity day girls with her. Kenna loves activity day girls and asks all the time when the next meeting is.
Kenna is excelling in soccer. She mainly plays defense. She is trying to work on being a goalie. Last week in her game they were winning by a lot. The coach put her in as forward and she scored 2 goals. She is getting a better attitude about playing.
She loves riding her bike, watching tv, making loom bracelets, playing legos, listening to music, making bead art and reading. She struggles with keeping her room clean. She loves to cook.
She had to start wearing deodorant. She is growing up way too quickly. She loves to play fashion and draw. She draws a lot of clothing pictures.
She is super sensitive, very sweet, has the best of intentions, is a great big sister, likes to be the oldest, she likes to be in charge, very thoughtful, likes to have fun, zones out while watching tv and likes to make others happy. She likes to be the best at everything and when she isn't she likes to give up. We are working on letting her know it's ok to not be the best at everything in life. I love her very much.
