It's 4:15 and my daycare kids are gone, Jadyn is still asleep, and for right now Gracie is being good. I wish I could take a nap, but I know if I tried Jadyn would be awake by the time I got to sleep. She normally is up from her nap but her schedule is a little off today because I gave her some benadryl for her snotty nose. Oh the joys of having a daycare at my house!! So, I'm new to the blog world, but I wanted a way to keep up with all the things my babies are doing. Gracie is four going on 15. She challenges me everyday. She demands all of my attention, and I love having conversations with her. You never know what she is going to come up with. She is so sassy and has the biggest imagination. She told me yesterday she has a baby in her belly and actually it was four babies, their names are going to be Dorfee, snowdrop, cinmer,and dragon. Two boys and two girls. We told her she has to be married to have babies in her belly, and then she says I'm just tending I'm grown up. Gracie is a creature of habit, she is very reluctant to change anything! We rearranged her bedroom this past weekend, which resulted in her being up at midnight Sunday night screaming and trying to move her bed back. Man, I really hope she outgrows this! We are going to sign her up to play softball in Benton to get her out of the house and around kids her age. I know she is probaly tired of spending all of her time with babies!!

Jadyn.............She is 11 months old and I smile just thinking about her! She is a wonderful baby! I know everyone says that, but she has been such a joy. She is very independent, she doesn't require me to entertain her. She loves to play! So, she finally got 2 teeth! I was beginning to think she was going to gum her food forever. Although, that would have been fine since she is still nursing and tends to bite me now! I've made it this long though I can take it! I'm waiting for her to start walking now............anytime now! She already loves to get into stuff, I can't imagine what it's going to be like once she is more mobile! She loves to get into my kitchen cabinets, pull the diapers out of the baskets, unfold my clothes, get into anything and everything! She loves Yo gabba gabba! It comes on Nick jr or nog. I have to say it is one of the best shows for kids! The music is great, and very catchy! When it comes on she goes up to the tv and dances!!

So, I have three extended children.............Mallory who is almost three and has the biggest vocabulary for someone her age. I have to remind myself that she is little!She loves to watch her cartoonies and sing. Corbin who is 1 and right now the resident toy thief, but I love him! He loves to watch yo gabba gabba and put his food in his hair. And Matthew who is 11 months. He has only been with me for three weeks, so I haven't really gotten to know him, but I think once he gets used to the routine and the other kids he will be great! So far he loves to play by himself but hopefully soon he will join the others!

I am tired today! I have got to get my babes to bed earlier! (and myself) Especially since Jadyn has stopped sleeping all night. I will add some pictures later!


  1. Welcome to the blog world. I love it, thought it was stupid at first and now I am an addict! I need to know how to get neat backgrounds though, I haven't figured any of that out. You are up on me with that part. By the way, our therapist don't bring anything into our house just their phones and keys because of germs. But I am sure their clothes bring them in.
