Ellie Mae is 1 1/2 already! She is such a cute little stinker!! She is into absolutely everything all the time. She is talking like crazy and can say so many things and you can tell her anything to do and she knows just what your talking about. We were in the car last week and Berklee was crying, she looked over to her and said "baby, ayay-yay!" It was so funny! She is starting to hit and throw things when she is frustrated, terrible 2's are on their way! She loves to give hugs and kisses and loves to go bye bye. She loves all of her sisters, but LOVES Berkie. She is constantly saying HI baby! In a very high pitched voice! She still wants her baboo and softie all the time and still loves her baba. She went to the Dr. today and we are trying lactose free milk for a few weeks to see if that helps her tummy. She is 24lbs 10oz (55%) 33 inches (90%) and her head is finally back on the chart at 90%! She loves music and loves to dance! She can also do a somersault! She is so smart and we are just loving watching her grow and learn! We love you Monkey!-

Berklee is 5 months old already, the time is just flying by. This little girl is just the happiest thing ever and only cries when she is hungry or ready for bed. She is still sleeping a lot, only awake for maybe 6-7 hours during the day, and she sleeps all night! She is eating oatmeal and loves it, we tried bananas yesterday and she ate the whole jar. She is rolling from back to tummy and just yesterday went all the way over. She loves to play with rattles and is starting to like her jumper more and more. I put her first ponytail in the other day and now she has one everyday! Its so cute! Glad I figured out what to do with that crazy mohawk! Sucking her thumb is a new discovery. And Im happy to say she didnt even have to go to physical therapy for torticollis, I think her neck was just kinked, because about 1 week after her Dr. appt she was totally fine and holding her head up straight. She LOVES to baby talk and squeals all the time. She loves all of her sisters and loves to talk to Ellie. They are going to be best little friends! Love you Berkie Turkey!

Berklee went to the doctor this week and she weighed 13 lbs 11oz (50%) and was 24.5 inches (50%), so she is a little chunker! She looks great other than she has a mild case of torticollis, so she has to go to physical therapy in 2 weeks. 1-3 visits should be plenty. She also had her 3 month photo shoot last week, lets just say she was NOT happy! But they still turned out pretty good!

We went to see the witches last week on my birthday, WORST time ever to go! It was UEA but I didnt even think of that, it was a complete mad house and we could barely take any pictures with them because you could barely walk! But the girls still had fun!

We got free tickets to Cornbelly's again this year from Brad's work. The girls had a blast, its fun to let them run around and play! Ellie got to enjoy it this year and loved it. We went to Chili's for dinner after, it was a fun family evening even though we froze! Last year we were sweating!

Berklee is 4 months old today! Last night was her first night in her own crib in her own room, she did so great! She went to bed at 6:40 got up for a bottle at 11:40 and didnt get up again until 7! I am going to try rice with her tonight, should be hillarious! None of the girls have ever liked it. She loves to play on the floor and can spin around in a circle, and she is always trying to get her feet in her mouth.
she loves her softie and has to cover her face with it when she is sleeping, still not a fan of the car seat, but every month she gets better about it. She is always smiling and happy and loves to be tickled. Her hair is so funny, she has lost a lot on the sides and in the back but still has a thick mohawk that will not lay down! I cant believe 4 months have gone by already, its going to be her 1st birthday before we know it! We love you Berkie werkie!! :)

Berklee is 3 months already! She LOVES to baby talk to you all day long! She smiles non-stop too! She is getting on more of a routine, taking about 3-4 naps a day, she doesnt like to sleep in her swing or bouncer anymore, she wants to be in her bassinet on her side, with her binky and her softy. She is all of the sudden eating 2x in the night, hopefully its just a growth spurt and wont last long! She is still in our room, I havent gotten another crib yet, plus I just want her in with me forever! She can almost roll over if she is on her tummy, the one arm just gets stuck! She is definetly spoiled and wants to be held all the time. She is doing better in the car seat, but still cries a lot. Her hair is falling out all over the place and theres fuzz growing in its place! She is just so cute and such a happy little girl and we all adore her! We love you Berklee, my baby forever! :)

Brinley started her 1st day of 4-5 year old preschool last week! So far she loves it, as always! Its nice for her to get out of the house and play with other kids, and she cant wait for field trips! Such a big girl, I cant believe Ill have 2 in elementary this time next year!

Ellie Mae is 15 months old! Holy cow!! She is just so stinkin cute! She went for her check-up, and is 22lbs 7oz (45th%) and 31 3/4 inches (90th%) the dr. said if she keeps growing at this rate she will be 5'8". There was a tragedy, we lost her softie somewhere, and its irreplaceable! They no longer make the minky that hers was made out of, luckily I did make a "big" softie that she sleeps with every night, but she is over carrying it around everywhere! This little girl is definetly our monkey! She climbs on anything and everything! She is always trying to get into the baby swing! She loves to eat, and still loves her milky in a baba! Its been impossible to get her off it because of Berklee having one. She lays on the ground and rolls around, arching up when she throws a fit, but it doesnt happen that often. She LOVES her daddy more than anything! Always pointing at pictures of him saying Dada! She is saying a lot of new words lately, "ookie" is cracker, "ink" is drink, "mooa" is eat or more and her FAVORITE thing in the world right now, "amo" Elmo! She loves to play outside and with her sisters, and feels very left out when they go somewhere without her! We all love you monkas!! Oh and I forgot to add, that she also knows her eyes, nose and ears, and will poke you in the eyes everyday to show you!

What?? Yes, its true! My baby was born 2 months ago already! I just cant get over it! She is at such a fun age right now! She is smiling and cooing all the time! She is awake most of the day and is very alert when she is awake. She has slept all night 2 times so far but only gets up 1 time to eat, so its not bad at all. She is holding her head up great and still loves to sleep on her tummy while laying on anyones tummy! She still LOATHES her carseat, screams bloody murder the entire time. And she sleeps just like Ellie did, with her head hyper-extended! Its so funny, but must be comfortable! Also the swing is all of the sudden her new favorite, she smiles and baby talks every time she gets in and looks up at the mobile. She got her 1st shots last week, and did good, only cried for a minute. She is 11 lbs 3 oz (40th%) and 22.5 inches (60th%) she looks like a chunker to me, but she is below average! We love you Berkie Werkie! (or Berklee and cheese as your daddy calls you!)

My baby is 6! I cant believe it!! We had her Birthday party at Chuck E Cheese, she won a ton of tickets and had a great time! Her favorite thing right now is the book Pinkalicious, so she got that and a really cute new fall outfit with matching headbands from mommy and daddy, and a ton of other stuff from everyone else! She is such a big girl and loves to read, she is not a big fan of 1st grade, only because she feels like she is missing out on a lot. She loves to ride her new big bike (she had to get one with a kick stand!) and to play in the sand box at the new house. The time is going by so fast! We love you Kensi! I hope you had a great birthday!!

Today was Kensi's 1st day of 1st grade!! She was really nervous all last week and was sad she wouldnt see her sisters during the day. We went and met her teacher yesterday and she sat in her desk and learned how they would do everything. Her teacher is really sweet. She woke up at 7 AM and came running in my room telling me to get up, she was so excited! She took lunch from home in her new Hello Kitty lunch pale and her new iCarly backpack. I cant believe she is already in 1st grade and going to be gone all day everyday of the week! That 6 years just went by way too fast! I cant believe it! It seems like just yesterday she was a newborn. We love you big girl! Quit growing up so fast! :)

Berklee is 1 month old today!! It has gone by SO fast! She has gotten so big, and has smiled a few times! She gets up 2x in the night to eat and goes right back to sleep. She is now in size 1 diapers and is almost grown out of her NB clothes! :( I will be selling them instead of putting them in a bin for the next baby, since there will be no next baby. She is starting to be awake more during the day, but still sleeps most of the day. She is such a good baby and is happy unless she is hungry or in her car seat. She sleeps with me every night and LOVES to be held! She is definitely the spoiled baby!! We love you Berklee! Its like we have always had you, and we love every minute!!

I came across this picture today. I love to see if my girls look a like as babies. The first picture is when Brinley is 2 days old and Kensi almost 18 months old. The second is Ellie at 13 months and Berklee at 2 weeks old. Times just goes by too fast, I remember taking the picture of Kensi and Brin like it was yesterday, but its been almost 5 years! SLOW down Time!!!

My girls say a lot of funny things! Like yesterday:
Brinley on her swimsuit- Mom, this is a baby top. Me- No, its supposed to show your tummy. Kensi- Yeah Brinley, its a zucchini
We were driving by Home Depot the other day, and they have a big windmill in their parking lot, and Brinley said, "look how fast that window will is going!"
Everytime I drive by Starbucks or Beans and Brews, both girls, "Mom, can we get a latte??"
There's tons more that I need to make sure to blog because these little kid days will be over and done with before I know it and my girls will be all grown up! :(
