B. is 6 months old!

My sweet baby girl is 6 months old today!  Can't believe time has flown by so quickly.  She has 2 teeth now, and is working on more, as evidenced by her chewing on her finger in the picture below!  She is a little stubborn, smarty pants already.  She has figured out that a loud, piercing shriek will get attention from everyone in the room!  She is eating more and more solid foods all the time, smiles and laughs at her siblings, sleeps through the night and has figured out how to move herself around in circles and scoots herself around on her tummy.  She will be crawling before we know it!

Growing kids

My kids are growing so fast.  Some days Ryan and I just look at them and think, what happened to the time?  Ma still loves the mud and dirt and could play outside by herself for a long time.  It is so nice to have a child that can play by herself!  She keeps us on our toes all the time too with her sassy personality.  Pres is our one that likes us to be by him, and he is our very sensitive and sweet one too.  Although, he is very much boy and loves to wrestle with his dad and tease his sisters!  B. is growing up quickly and outgrows more outfits every day and gives us more smiles all the time.

Mother's Day

At Preschool, Pres made me a gift for Mother's Day.  He was so excited to give it to me and was so proud of himself for making it and for writing on the bag by himself.  Preston tells me, "Mom, you're my best Mom."  That just makes me smile.  All the times that he argues with me or drives me crazy, that makes up for it.  I love my kids so much.  They mean the world to me and I don't know what I would do without them.  They drive me nuts some days and test my patience, but I have to remember they are sent here from above and each one was sent here for a reason at a specific time.  I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for them in the future!
