Poop

Guess what??? Micah woke up this morning and told us he needed to go poo. He went downstairs pulled down his diaper and pooped in his little potty. This is so huge. This is the first time he's told us he needed to go without us prompting him or him being naked. I really hope this is a sign that he's ready. It's so exciting.

More exciting news is we put an offer in on another house and may be hearing back from them today.  Here's the crazy part..I haven't even seen the house. I let Craig go without me on a weeknight and we could ultimately buy a house without me having gone in it. I think I trust him a little too much. I'm sure I'm the only woman who would ever let their husband pick out a home. He knows what I like and what I want and sometimes I think he's pickier than me.

Also I'm singing 3 song on Sunday morning and I'm am pretty nervous about it, but also super excited. I was so excited to be apart of leading worship but am feeling a bit overwhelmed with 3 songs!! This mommy brain sometimes isn't as good as it used to be!!

Happy birthday to my sisters tomorrow!! There are so many people that have birthdays on the 22nd! My roommate from college and baby Nolan. We are going to his bday party on Saturday and seeing my sisters on Sunday!!

Love you all

Easter

What a great weekend we had! We put an offer in on two houses we saw on Saturday. We may not get either of them but it's a good start to finding something we like. The market is so crazy right now. The house we want was bought three years ago for 100 grand less than they are asking this year. Seems crazy. We got a counter offer, but may be sticking to our original offer for the house. We really don't like paying more than we think it's worth. It's an old house too so you know things are going to go wrong.
Lots to think about and consider. Easter was fun. The kids looked so fun and we loved celebrating Jesus and that he is alive so we can have hope. Micah made a cute little craft at church and he kept saying, "Jesus is alive." It was so fun to hear him say.
Our little girl is really showing her personality these days. She is starting to giggle and smile at everyone (not just me). When she nurses she will stop and look up at me and give me the biggest smile. It melts my heart every time. Like she says thanks mom. Haha I don't think Micah ever did that.
She had a blast at her cousins house, but not as much fun as Micah did. He loves his cousins. I can't imagine leaving them now. He asks for them constantly.  They are part of his best friends now. I shot a little video of the Easter egg hunt at Hannah's. Each kid had their own colors so it worked out great. That's why you hear Micah saying, "lellow" (that's how he says yellow).
Pray for us to figure out our next steps soon. Craig should hopefully heat back from Dallas this week too.

Loves babies

I was right. That was a one time thing. She is waking up again at night. Oh well. This stage will end soon and I will miss it. She is just the sweetest baby. Micah had so much fun with her today . We played with a friend who has a girl Micah's age and had a little boy 2 days after me. They took some adorable pics today and I needed to share. Micah just loves babies!!

First night of sleep

It's been awhile since I've had time to get on here and tell you all what's going on. It's just been really busy and I've been so tired I try to rest when I can.  We've been looking at houses on the weekends and trying to get a feel for what's out there in our price range. Nothing perfect yet...but I'm sure when we find it we will know.


I'm behind and here are pics from last week Tuesday when we went to the zoo for the first time with little sister! It was spring break so everyone in ATL was there with us, but we had a ton of fun without Blonde friends. Noelle slept most of the time.



 JJ is beside Micah and Little Hannah is to the right of him. They are his best buds!!

I took a pic for everyone who wants to pinch Noelle's cheeks. They are so cute and chunky. 
 She loves her brother. I mean she smiles at him everytime and loves watching him play.

This was on Friday before we left to go to our cousins house. 



Noelle and I had some selfie time while brother and dad played at the park. This was after we saw a few houses on Sunday. 





Look at those cheeks!!!

Brother/Sister love


We went on an easter egg hunt yesterday at a Senior Living Center with our MOPS group. They loved all the littles there. Noelle and Micah got all dressed up for the occasion. I told Micah all the girls would think he is really cute in this hat and so he kept it on the whole time. Then he told his dad later that everyone thought he was cute in his hat (this was very true). haha



 Everyone kept saying he looks like a model in a GQ magazine. I was like yeah.. he gets that from his mom. LOL


So the title of this blog... Let me get to that. Last night I put Noelle down at 9 p.m. and she slept till around 11:30 p.m. and nursed again. I thought maybe she was going to have a growth spurt and keep waking up but I was wrong. She then slept till 7 a.m.!! Almost a full 8 hours of sleep. I couldn't believe it when I woke up. I actually woke up a few minutes before her and checked out the clock. I was so surprised. I honestly don't think it will keep happening consistently, but at least I know she can do it! She is such a mover. Sleeps on her belly and I find her at the top of her crib, so she much be moving forward. Craig and I decided she has a small head and makes it easier to get around. Unlike her brother whose head was so big he decided to never move.

She is such a good baby and so happy. I think her brother has a lot to do with that though.

We are going to try and get to the outlets today and get Micah some new sandals for the summer! Also I need a bonnet for Noelle. Her poor little bald head is getting to much sun.

Love you all and I hope you are having a great week.

Here are some videos incase you have missed them on the youtube site:

Thankful, grateful, blessed

What an emotional rollercoaster we've all been on this past weekend. We are so blessed to have our dad still with us today. He's healthier than ever and can look forward to many more years to hug him. I got a call on Saturday morning from my mom telling me dad had gone in for heart problems and they think his artery is blocked.  They found out he had a heart attack in the back part of his heart and his artery was 100 percent blocked. He was very fortunate he went in when he did.

We were all in shock and wanted to be there so bad. It's very hard to live far away when stuff like this happens. I decided to sleep over Rachel's house so we could be together. It felt like we needed each other to comfort since we couldn't be with him.

It's such a good reminder that every day is a gift and we don't have long to live here on earth. It's hard to think about losing one another but it's so nice to know we will be together again soon. So grateful my dad swallowed his pride and went in to the hospital. It might be the hardest part to realize you need help. I know when I was contemplating going in to the doctor it took me awhile to convince myself something was wrong and I wasn't going to heal on my own. Who knows what would have happened if he waited another day.

Today and everyday we are thankful and praise God for the breath we take. And I'm so happy my kids will be playing with their papa again soon. We love you dad and know HE isn't finished with you yet. ❤❤
