Office/ playroom

Every so often rich gets a little crowded in his office. Those are the days when he has to jump over pukes if toys to get to his desk. I promise we make the girls clean when it gets to this point!

The joys of working from home.

Church today

I know I shouldn't be taking pictures in church, but my baby fell asleep in my arms and Cara is just being Cara and crazy.
Cara is reading this right now and she is loving that she read her name a couple times. So fun to watch these kids grow and learn every day.
I am so blessed with this amazing family of mine.

2014 goals

Ryann made goals in her class and she just brought them home this week. She is so stinking cute.
She'll hate me for it one day, but the 2 things she wants to stop doing are biting her nails and picking her nose.

Tuesday afternoon Rich drove the kids up to my office. The car was loaded and packed up. Cara had no idea what was going on, but Ryann was a little smarter and figured out we were going to Disneyland.
 We spent the night at my Aunt Barbara's house (THANK YOU!) and then in the morning we got dressed and loaded up the stroller and walked over to Disneyland. Yes, they live that close.
 Once we were there we met up with my parents, brother Cory, sister in law Katie, and cousin Dean. It was a blast. I have a hundred more pictures on my phone and will post them when I find the time.
Poor Rich had to stay  home to work. But it was a fast and furious trip and I drove home when the park closed and made it home safe and sound... ready for work the next morning. 

Happy 30th birthday to me!

4 teeth

This little man just got his 4 tooth. It is the first tooth that we knew was coming based on how grumpy he was. Thankfully it is here and he is so much happier.

On another note, he is sleeping much better through the night. For the past 3 nights he had only woken up once between 630pm and 7am. I am hoping this is for real since he is 6 months now.

The chop house

While rich and I have been in Omaha we decided to go to the best steak house we could find. I think the chop house was it. So delicious and so fun. Mac slept through the entire thing.

6 Months

You can now sit up. You want to crawl extremely bad. If you are fussy we put you on your belly and you jump up on your hands and knees and try to crawl. I think you are missing being able to keep up with your friends at day care. 
You still don't like when mommy drinks milk.
You eat more than both of your sisters combined. Both solids and milk.
You are still waking up twice a night, but next week it is go time (cry it out).
Your top tooth came in the day before you turned 6 months and the 4th one is almost there.
I had you adjusted by the chiropractor last week in order to help you nurse better.  IT WORKED!
The girls are still obsessed with you.
You love peek a boo.
You are constantly twirling your wrists and playing with your hands.
You tried cheerios for the first time and were a huge fan.
Prunes are your best friend because you often get constipated.
Still wearing cloth diapers.
You weigh about 16lbs.
Your big cheesy smile melts my heart.
Cara makes you laugh more than anyone else.
Ryann is usually the one who gets you out of bed in the morning.
Thank you Mac for some of the most amazing 6 months of my life. 
I love you.

Peter's Trucks

Mac is such a lucky boy. Auntie Erin and Uncle Peter :) sent him this cute book that Pete's mom wrote. She signed it for him and it has a cute part about "MAC" in it. 

Thanks for the thoughtful gift!
