Sleeping "Bath" Beauties


These two Yahoo's were in the bath tub the other night and were pretending they were Sleeping Beauties :)
I grabbed my camera for a random shot and this is what "Sleeping Beauties" must look like?? I told Ry that "if you are sleeping that your eyes need to be closed and that you really dont smile like that when you are sleeping" she replied "yes mom, I know, I'm just pretending to be asleep" okay Rylee!!

And Syd, well I think this says it all..... haha 

My little Lexee Jo (oh how the time is flyin')

Lexee Jo is 4 months :)

This little girlie turned 4 months old at the end of September :)

* Is a lovely 16.5 lbs (out weighs both of her sisters by two lbs)
* Is a whopping 26.75 inches tall (yep has two inches on both sisters as well at 4 mos)
* Loves to smile and talk talk talk
* Found her feet and toes, they've become great friends ;)
* Doesn't like to sleep through the night (but then again I know I'm not that lucky)
* Rylee is definitely one person that can get her to smile and laugh
* Sydnee is the little watcher, she climbs into Lexee's crib and sits with her until I come and get Lex (good or              bad not sure yet)
* Loves to stand up when you are holding her hands
* Bath time continues to be her favorite time of day (When Rylee and Syd are in the bath she sits on the side, refusing to wait her turn and usually ends up completely soaked)
* Haven't ventured down the cereal or food path yet but we'll be trying it out in the next couple weeks or so
* She some how acquired a piece of licorice last night and found that-that was a pretty tasty thing to suck on ooops :) (thanks Sydnee babysitter)

* Three little girls, Shane you definitely have your work cut out for you :) That is of course because my year vacation starts when you get home.....RIGHT???? (lol)

Just a Thought on the Minds of Many

This is for the young women that are waking up at 6 a.m. every morning with small precious children that they have been left alone to care for. This is for the pregnant Military wife wondering if her husband will make it home in time to watch their miracle happen. This is for the childless Military wife, living in a town or on a base alone where she is a complete stranger to her surroundings. This is for the women that feel like a third leg when they go out with their friends and their husbands. This is for the Military wife that cancelled all her plans to wait by the phone, and even though the phone broke up and cut off every time you spoke to him you waited anyway. This is a pledge to the women that cry themselves to sleep in an empty bed. This is to recognize the woman that felt like she was dying inside when he said he had to go, but smiled for him anyway. This is for those of you that are faithfully in that long line at the post office once a month handling 2 large boxes and 2 small children like a pro. This is for that woman that decided to remodel the house to pass time, and then realized that she had no idea what she was doing and sighed and wished she had a little help. This is for all the lonely nights, all the one-person dinners, and all of the wondering thoughts because you haven't heard from him in days. A toast to you for falling apart, and putting yourselves back together. Because a pay check isn't enough, a body pillow in your bed is no consolation, and a web cam can never compare. This is for all of you no matter how easy or hard this was for you. Our military men are brave, they are heroes, but so are we. So the next time someone tells you that they would never marry a Military guy, don't bother explaining to them that you can't control who you fall in love with. Just think of this and nod your head, know that you are the stronger woman. Hold your heads up high, hang that flag in your front yard, stick 100 magnets on your car, and then give yourself a pat on the back. Be proud to be the woman that you are, be proud to be a military wife.

Thank you for sending this to me :)

The four girls that live in our circle, all ready for their big Day :)

Standing in front of the school with the Giant Crayons

 Rylee and her good friend Ellie, this is when they went and met their teacher for the first time and saw where they sit in their surprise they actually sit right next to each other :)

Sydnee was asking where pictures were of her, so I had to take one real fast and add this one...hehe
