Breeana keeps me on my toes!

So tonight Scott were watching NCIS that we DVR'd (made up word kinda). We are pitiful we will schedule 2 shows at the same time, then turn off the TV for 30 minutes to an hour and then watch the shows just so we can fast forward commercials. Anyway, Breeana got out her markers and coloring books, this is normal, so I wasn't paying much attention. When I did look at her I noticed 3 purple spots on her forehead, one on each cheek, her chin, the bridge of her nose, etc. Now these wonderful princess stamper markers that her Aunt Crystal got her for Christmas don't wash off so well, so if you see faded purple marks or red splotches from me scrubbing the marker off on my daughters face tomorrow night at church, you will know why they are there. Scott got a pic on his phone, I will get hold of it and post it tomorrow!

"Let's Do It Now"

I am a major blogaholic, I love to read blogs and find myself engulfed in them linking from blog to blog to blog. I have been keeping track of several families that have babies in the nicu and Breeana likes to look at the pictures with me. I have told her that the babies are sick and we need to pray for them. Anyway, a couple hours ago I was checking in on Baby Harper and the King Family Quads and Bree said "I need to see the sick babies" I said ok we need to pray for them, not meaning right that moment. She said "let's do it right now mommy," and folded her little hands together and said "Thank You God and Jesus" now you pray mommy. So I stopped and said a quick prayer for all the sick babies in the NICU. Breeze was just a little reminder that we should pray anytime and all the time, not just before bed, at meals etc. I know this and do it, but it was nice to have a little reminder from my 3 year old!

Jarrett's On The Move

So I have never been a fan of baby gates, nor is my house all that baby proof. Bree was/is such a good listener (most of the time) has never been really nosey about MY stuff, doesn't get into cabinets, and really just likes to play with her stuff . And then there is Jarrett. This week he has discovered the kitchen and bathroom. He tries to follow me everywhere. Maybe Bree didn't do this b/c she didn't even crawl until she was 9 months and then she was content to stay in one room. Anyway, I think I am going to have to invest in a couple of gates to block off my kitchen from my curious little boy.

Here are some pics of him this morning. He crawled under his toy and then let out a huge "LOOK AT ME MOM" squeal and was all smiles. When I got my phone out to take a pic he decided he needed it and came crawling toward me.

HE IS ORNERY!!!!!! But I love HIM!!!!

6 Month Well Baby Visit

I took Jarrett this morning for his 6 Month well baby visit. He is really 6 1/2 Months we are a couple weeks off. Anyway, here are his stats.

Weight: 18.7 lbs, 75%
Height: 27 in, 70%
Head: 50% (I don't remember exact measurement)

Just for fun here are Bree's stats at the exact same age.

Weight: 18.6 lbs
Height: 28 in
Head: 50% again can't remember and didn't write down measurement.

They are pretty close in size. He is losing some of his rolls already cause he is army crawling everywhere (he followed me down the hall this morning) and is into everything. Bree was content to sit and play at his age. So he looks smaller that she did to me at this age.

He has a rash on his tummy and back that I noticed last night after church. The doc said it was probably contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction of some sort. I can't think of anything that would have caused it, but oh well, he said it should go away in a couple days and use cortisone cream.

And that is that!!!!

A work in progress

UPDATE: This will do for now!

I am working on changing my blog background and header. This is not the background I am keeping, I just have to quit for now b/c Jarrett thinks he needs me!!!

Jarrett 6 1/2 Months

I think these will do for 6 Month Pics. I am going to order prints tomorrow. We will see how they turn out! I guess I don't take him outside enough. He was so distracted my grass, dirt, everything, he would not smile for me at all, he wanted to take off and explore and get dirty!!!

From My Iphone Camera

Okay these are just a bunch of pics I have captured with my spiffy IPhone. I find myself using it to take pics more than my camera. I guess as my mom and aunts would say I am always messing with it so it is easier to locate than my camera at any giving time as it is usually in my hand! The pics are in no particular order so I will just put captions above them to explain if necessary.

This is "Handy Breezy" I had to sing the Handy Manny song with her name in it. She decided my swifter wet jet was "broken" and she needed to fix it, but that couldn't be done with out work clothes like daddy and work boots like Nane!

She looks so sweet and innocent!

Daddy catching a nap while feeding his boy.

Big blue eyes, I think 2 teeth are going to pop through anytime now.

Um this is what a bored little girl does the day after Christmas. Created new outfits out of decorations!!

Just hanging out in the saucer toy.

Helping Non cook at Nan's House.

Sharing a Pepsi with Non! This is a normal activity for these two!

He is getting really good at rocking, but he gives up to soon and goes back to army crawling.

This was her favorite hat for a few days. She wore it everywhere. I think she kinda looks like her pal goofy in it!


Ashley and I are having a girls night tonight and I am so ready. My mom is keeping the kids and we are going to see Bride Wars at the lovely Woodward Theatre. I believe mom is going to keep the kiddos all night, unless Bree does her throw a fit I need to go home routine, and I am going to SLEEP IN in the morning!!!! YEAH!

Also today I am going to attempt to take Jarrett's 6 month pictures with the assistance of my mom. I am tired of paying high prices at the walmart portrait studio, b/c when I go I have to do all the posing and have ideas cause all the little person does is point and click. And I DO NOT want to drive to Sears in Enid. So wish me luck, should be interesting, maybe I'll put them up on my blog tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!

"Be careful Daddy"

Breeana got in bed with me on Monday morning when Scott got up to get ready for work. When he came to kiss us good bye and Bree said, "Be careful daddy it's dark out there." Then she rolled over and went back to sleep. She is so caring and compassionate, I am not sure where she gets it from, I guess my mom!
