Just Some Pictures

This was so cute! They love jumping!
Sitting on our bench, as you can see they were enjoying themselves and about 5 seconds later Jaeli took a head dive to the floor! She is so fast!!! Even sitting in your lap, within a second she can flop backwards!
This was a bad night, so I put them in their high chairs and gave them measuring cups to play with for awhile to try and keep them happy!
Our new favorite thing is kissing each other! It is so cute!
Maysie becoming adventurous, starting to climb!
Makenna trying to walk.
She loves walking across the living room with her little car! She is so proud!

The girls are doing great! It has been getting harder at night. They all want my attention at the same time and if they don't get it, they just scream! Hopefully it starts to get better soon! I think they are just getting bored with their toys and the space we have available. We put the house up for sale on Saturday! Wish us luck, I am hoping it sells fast! It is going to be tough moving and taking care of the girls, but I am sure family and friends will help out!

Makenna is taking more steps, she does it by herself sometimes, but not very often!

Jaeli is still army crawling, but pulling herself up a lot better. She has been very needy lately.

Maysie is crawling like a champ! She gets so excited! Soon she will be faster than Jaeli!

So we went to Josh's aunts house this weekend to celebrate a couple birthdays, and the girls seemed to enjoy themselves. They ate lots! And very very messy! So we decided to clean them off in the pool!
They didn't really like it, but the water was pretty cold. Makenna loved the chair. I got some other pics of MJ and JJ, but they didn't come out very well. Hopefully we can put them in the pool again soon!

Updates! Pictures!

Our new toy that we got at a garage sale for a great price! Thanks LeAnn!

Trying out our straw sippy cups. We just like to play with them!

Maysie is officially crawling! She is very slow at it, but gets better every day! I think she might catch up to Jaeli. She is still army crawling and Maysie gets up on her knees!

Maysie loves to sit on her car!

Jaeli Standing...still can't do it all on her own, but soon!

Jaeli climbing on everything now!

Makenna in play center! Thought it was cute her head was right in the center!

My little monkey can now climb up things!

Makenna 23 lbs
Jaeli 20 lbs

Sorry for the delay of pictures! I have many to post, just have not had time to post them. We are pretty busy with the house, but once it slows down I will post some pics!

An update:

Maysie is starting to "crawl", if that is what you want to call it! Makenna is going every which way she can and Jaeli is getting close to getting up on her knees instead of army crawling! I think that is about it. No new teeth yet, just two for Maysie and Jaeli and three for Makenna!

Bath Time In The Sink


So I had to give the girls a bath in the sink the other day because our bathroom was not "available" because we were fixing it up to get ready for putting the house up for sale. Well they had fun, and it was actually a lot easier than baths in the tub. But they love baths in the tub even more, so I think I have to stick to it!



We had our first "real" experience with Cake today. They loved it! It was my Birthday yesterday, so my Aunt brought over a cake with dinner tonight. I decided to let the girls have a little piece. It was so messy though, I had to spray them off in the sink! Can you say Sugar High!!!

Maysie Falling Asleep

Jaeli Jo being funny!
Makenna playing with our new bench. I filled the middle basket with books, she loved it!
Maysie falling asleep...
and now falling into a deeper sleep...
Passed out!

So lately Maysie has been a DRAMA QUEEN! She just cries and cries and cries if you don't sit and play with her or hold her, and especially when you leave the room. I am not sure what the deal is. I think she might be going through separation anxiety. Since we switched to regular formula this started. So I think between gas and teething, she just has not been feeling good and wants lots and lots of attention. She is still very happy, but only if you are holding or playing with her! Anyways, the pictures above are mostly of Maysie falling asleep right after her last bottle for the day. She could not stay awake! I try not to let them take naps at night anymore, helps them sleep longer through the night, so she was very tired!

Meal Time

Miss Makenna, she loves to eat!

Miss Maysie, always smiling, especially when she is eating!

Miss Jaeli, love the faces she was making! She was loving the pasta salad!

Here are some pictures from dinner a couple days ago! They are now all feeding themselves. It is a lot more messy this way, but eventually they will get better at it and less food will fall to the floor for the dog or under their butts!

Maysie's Cut and more...

Maysie's cut on her leg, just below her knee on the side.

So somehow Maysie cut her leg. You would have thought I would have discovered it right away...but I noticed it when she was happy as could be. I have no idea how she did it! It is her first official ouchy!

I don't think I mentioned this yet, but Makenna has another tooth, bottom again, so now she has three bottom teeth!

As for the house...well its coming along, lots more work to do. I am finally done painting for the weekend. Got to do more next weekend. It will be my last day to paint, so hopefully I can get it all done. We will see! It looks alright, not the best job, but when did I ever say I was good at it!

I am worried that this is all for nothing (except that it will look nice), I spoke with a family member who is a Realtor from out of town about putting our house up for sale and it was not good. I think we may be out of luck. Our problem wont be trying to sell it, it will be trying to buy a new house. We have not been at this house long enough, so we don't have it paid down much. And there is a penalty for moving early (because of the type of loan we got). We also have no down payment. So if we do sell, we will pretty much break even. Nothing to put down on a new house and no loans out there that will allow us to have no down payment. Pretty upset about it, but we are going to look into some more options and see if we can figure something out. If not, then we are probably stuck here for a few more years, cramped in our little tiny house.

Working on our house!

So this weekend we will be working on the house. Thank you to grandma and aunt Kristi for taking the girls for us so we can actually get some things done! I think I am going to do a lot of painting and hopefully Josh will do some organizing! We actually started this process yesterday. We thought we would just patch a few nail holes in the bathroom, but my in-laws discovered some problems. So we had to tear down the bathroom walls and even some of the drywall. So a few hour job, turned into a few day job. Hopefully our tub will be up and running in a few days!
