A soccer game, birthday party, gymnastics practice, and a halloween craft...a pretty typical Saturday for us!! (Throw in there a house that desperately meeds to be cleaned as well!) A baby who has been running between 100 and 103 fever for the past three days...not so typical. Made getting everyone where they needed to be a little more difficult. She is acting pretty normal, praying it passes soon. Thankful for our busy days with the kiddos. I can't remember what our Saturdays were like before them. I am sure nowhere near as fun:)

This girl at 6 months old weighs exactly what Maddie did at one year old!! A whopping 18 pounds 4 ounces:) I rushed her to the doctor yesterday when she began running 102.7 fever. I jumped the gun and thankfully she is fine. Weird! She is beginning to wave and we think trying to cut a tooth. Love our chunky monkey!!

Last night we went to Disney on ice with Megs and Aubry. Harper stayed with Mimi and Boo Boo. We loved it!! Turner got in trouble last year and didn't go with us. He was so excited and was mesmerized the entire time. It was so fun spending time with just the older two. They had snocones, popcorn, and cotton candy. Turner brought some of his money and bought a Mickey Mouse. He loves his stuffed animals. Maddie enjoyed the show too but didn't show quite as much excitement.
The show had Belle, Ariel, Brave, and Tangles in it. I think they both liked Brave the best. Aubry liked it too but lost her paci halfway through. Made for a long ride home:) It was a fun night!
Impossible to believe our happy baby is already six months old! She is the sweetest thing and we can't get enough of her. She is sitting up like a champ and loves playing with Turner's kitchen stuff. That has been the most well spent money ever:) I am still making her food and so far she has had carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, squash, peas, pears, and apples. We are noticing some skin irritation with a few of them, but she seems to like them all!
She sleeps great and must have her bear lovey amd paci. She is babbling up a storm. I guess we are just bypassing rolling over. She laughs, loves bathtime, and hates the jumparoo. Everytime we put her in it, she screams. She does not like that toy! She still wears size 3 diapers and mostly 9 months clothes. She is starting to pull at her headbands...not sure we will have a head full of hair before she won't keep them in. She is a poser!! If I hold up my phone, she is going to smile.

Yesterday Turner had his first soccer game of the season. What a difference from last year! He ran hard and didn't complain about being hot and sweaty:) We are so proud of him. He tells us good sportmanship is the most important thing and us always cheering on his friends. He had lots of family there cheering him on!! Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Last weekend was spent in Savannah celebrating Brittany and Michael and the start of their life together. Our little man was the precious ring bearer and did an awesome job! I drove down Friday with the three kiddos by myself so Turner could make the rehearsal. Kev had football and came down Saturday with my parents.
It was a fun weekend...it was a tiring weekend. All three kids did great amd made it a lot easier than it might have been. I am going to share a few pics from my phone, but need to do another post from my computer. Thankful for a great mother in law who is so much help even with a hurt foot! She had surgery a few weeks ago and still isn't fully recovered. She is always putting everyone above herself and last weekend was no exception! Love my Savannah family:)
It was a beautiful wedding and Brittany was a beautiful bride! We wish them many years if happiness.

First of all-a few hours after I did Harper's 5 month post...she started sitting up!!! She can't do it for a long period of time, but oh my stars. She is so proud and oh so cute:)
Our second born-crazy to believe he was our baby only five short months ago. I took that pic of him asleep and couldn't believe it. He is so long! He is precious and a hand full all at the same time. So glad we have a boy to love in between our two girls. He will be a man before we know it and I pray he has all kinds of his daddy in him. Some girl will be lucky to have him one day!
Our first born-is turning 7 in a few short months and loves painting her toes as much as she loves doing karate in her spiderman outfit. She went with me to a Ladies Night Out at Friday night and seemed so grown. She wants to do her homework as soon as gets home from school yet thinks school is boring and says she doesn't want to go. She can act so grown and little all at the same time.
I never imagined these three littles would be able to bring us this much joy! All three different and they all belong to us! God is good!

Harper is 5 1/2 months now and wanted to share some pics. She is the happiest baby and usually has a smile on her face or is laughing at Maddie and Turner. Here are a few facts about Harper at this age:
-She almost weighs 17 lbs and is wearing mostly 9 month clothing and size 3 diapers.
-She enjoys playing in her exercauser
-She is eating baby food well. She likes everything so far that I have made.
-She is back to basically sleeping through the night again. I might have to go in there to give her a paci, but we rarely feed her in the middle of the night.
-Her little skin isn't as smooth as it was. We are using excema cream and it seems to help.
-She isn't spitting up quite as much! Praise the Lord!
-She is a trooper. I feel like many days are spent just getting her in and out of the car while I shuffle everyone around. I have had to interrupt many naps and she just goes with the flow.
-She is a blessing!!
