Paintings for Decker

As Decker's due date got closer and closer we all got more and more excited.  Decker felt like he was here before he ever even made his entrance into the world.  This pregnancy was so much fun for me because the girls got to share in the joy and the excitement with me, and I loved that.  A little less than a week before Decker decided to join us the girls made some paintings for him which we displayed proudly up on the fridge.  I love these girls so so much, and I so wish I could keep them little forever, I really do cherish being a mom...it is totally the best job.  My days at home with the kids are some of my most favorite days ever.

Naked painting is the only way to go...





Harper was so tidy when she was little, not sure how she became my wild messy one.



Harper loves cleaning up in the sink.  I wish I loved it as much as she does, but we always end up with water all over the place.


Speaking of water...I leave this girl without a diaper on for two minutes and she pees all over the floor...I caught her in action here.

Bend it Like Sawyer

There was a lot of hype and excitement leading up to Sawyer's first season of soccer and my first time being a Soccer Mom!  I was super excited, and I thought Sawyer was excited too, but once the season got started we realized that maybe soccer wasn't really Sawyer's thing.

Sawyer played in just a few games and then decided to hang up her shoes for the rest of the season.  In her second game she scored a goal, and it was pretty awesome - proud parents we were!







First game of the season...it was almost 100 degrees outside.  I was super pregnant.  It was a fun day regardless and look at our cute girl with that smile on her face!



On her way to the goal...




This was right after Sawyer scored her goal.  Marc and I were obnoxious parents cheering loudly from the sidelines.  Love that girl.

Our Tiny Dancer

Part of my motherhood dreams came true the day that Sawyer started taking dance classes.  However, the first day of class wasn't necessarily dreamy.  Being consumed with my pregnancy and foggy preggo brain I missed the memo that class was starting and that Sawyer needed ballet shoes, tap shoes, and proper dance attire.  Sawyer's class is at 9:30, so early that morning I dragged the kids to Target and got a leotard and some tights and figured she could get through the first day of class with her pink TOMS on.  I was so wrong.  Sawyer got to her class, realized she wasn't properly equipped and had a complete melt down that she didn't have her own tap shoes.  We left class (without even participating), spent $100 on leotards and shoes, and Sawyer was the happiest little dancer around.

I love this tiny dancer and it makes me so thrilled that she enjoys it so much.  Being this girl's mama is so much fun.

Another perk of dance?  Sawyer gets to dance with her best friend.








Back-to-School

Summer 2012 was a good one, and it was sad seeing it end.  But with every end comes a new beginning, and this year Sawyer was starting school at a new preschool.  School with Sawyer has been a great experience - or both her and for me.  When I was in preschool I cried every day when my mom dropped me off...I feared Sawyer would follow in my footsteps.  Fortunately for me, Sawyer loves school, she never wants to miss class, and she is always excited to see her friends and her teachers.  I am actually a little lost when Sawyer is at school, it doesn't feel right having one of my kids missing.  Since Sawyer loves school so much I do too; it is fun watching your child grow & learn.  

Before the first day of school we had to go to a preschool orientation.  Of course we took pictures.  And of course, Harper didn't want her picture taken.



First Day of School 2012




I can't believe this girl will be going to school next year...


So sad to say goodbye to summer but so happy that these little ladies are mine regardless of the season.

Waiting for Our Number 5

Waiting for Decker felt like it went so fast...and yet so slow at the same time.  The end of my pregnancy was exhausting, and I was uncomfortable, I felt like my insides were breaking, and I had anxiety because I was worried who would watch the girls when I was in labor, and the weather was H.O.T.  But, put all my complaining aside, it was wonderful being pregnant too.  It was so fun having Sawyer and Harper so excited to meet their little brother.  I knew that the little babe in my belly was meant to be ours and I couldn't wait for him to make his appearance.  It was a genuinely happy time.  And it still is.  I love seeing our family grow and the love multiply.  I couldn't have pictured a better way to spend my life than with these people.
