4 months

My little man is 4 months. I can't believe how grown up he is already. He is so strong, he loves to sit up and is most happy in his bumbo or his little car.
stats: 13 pounds 27 percentile and 25 inches a 52 percentile so he is right on in length but kinda small in pounds.
Micah can roll from back to tummy and tummy to back I have a feeling he may be taking after his big brother and will be scooting around soon.
Sleeps 8-9 hours a night but demands to eat every 3 during the day.
Micah is seriously the happiest baby ever and really doesn't cry unless he needs something or Teagan is "loving" him a little to much. He gives the best smiles to anyone that looks his way and has mastered the cutest little giggle.
He brings the sweetest spirit to our home and we are so blessed to have our little man.

That dang lump in my throat!!

Today Olivia started kindergarten. For weeks people have been asking if I thought I would cry. I immediately responded "HECK NO"!! Olivia was ready for kindergarten a year ago, we were beyond excited and ready. September 1st could not come fast enough for Olivia and me. Not because I wanted to get rid of her but because I knew she would love it.
Well this morning I got the knot in my stomach and a familiar lump in my throat, was I seriously about to cry? I had not even dropped her off yet. Oh crap I was doomed. I pushed it aside and continued to get Olivia ready. Then I took the picture above and about lost it again! She looked so grown up, in a flash the last 5 years flew through my head. When did my baby girl grow up into such a beautiful little lady? I tried to convince her to change her outfit into something..... I don't know more little girlish. No way!! She would not have it. So for the next few minutes I sat and watched her look in the mirror as she smoothed her skirt, adjusted her headband and smiled at her self. (she is very girly and going through a vain stage)
Then a quick picture of the 2 of us and it was off to school. She forced Teagan in a pic, he wasn't to thrilled hahaha

Outside her classroom, here I could see her getting a little nervous. And I was fighting like crazy to hold back that stupid lump in my throat that I knew would bring on the waterworks.
I quickly herded her into her classroom, her teacher was quick to give her a hug and welcome her. So I gave her a kiss told her I loved her and to have fun and got the heck out of there hoping I would not run into anyone I knew because I knew if I spoke the tears would flow. I managed to make it home without any tears. But I get close, even now thinking about how grown up she had gotten makes me want to bawl blah LAME!!! So now I realize moms don't cry because there kid is going to school they cry because there baby is all grown up DUH!! But I am so excited for her, she came home bursting with excitement telling me every detail. and as you can see Micah is really happy for her too.
