A long overdo update

Wow! It's been a while since I've been here. I'll try to keep the update short, but I know a few people really like to know what we have been up to.

Allisyn turned 5! For her birthday she and I took a trip to Dallas and stayed overnight. We went to the American Girl Store and she picked her first American Girl doll. She has started kindergarten and is going all day. We love her teacher and she enjoys riding the bus home. Even after getting put on the wrong bus, she still wants to ride. She has a few friends in her class and is making more each day.

Piper turned 3! She and Gabbie both celebrated their birthdays while we were on vacation to South Padre. On our way down, we stopped at the American Girl store again. This time so Alli could spend a gift card from Uncle Dustin and the little girls could get their bitty babies. Piper graduated out of Sooner Start and is transitioning into the Edmond School system for her speech therapy. During her evaluations to transition over we heard mAy times that she is really smart, and her testing shows she it at or above the curve on everything except for expressive speech. Hopefully we will continue on with her therapy soon. We are still working on her potty training. She had the number one down, always has issues with number 2, and is regressing a little with number one. Hopefully we will get that straightened out soon.

Gabriella turned 1! Our sweet baby is growing up. She still isn't walking, though she could if she would quit over thinking it. She takes 2-4 steps here and there and then realizes what she is doing. She has 3 teeth and is working on more. She and Piper will be starting MDO at our church next month. I think Gabbie is going to greatly benefit from it. We know Piper loves it. She is such a joy. She has Alli's flair for drama and some of Piper's ability to be a "mess!"

We just got the big girls bunk beds. So far is has improved sleeping habits. Piper is the one who needed improvement. She still tries to come to our bed every now and then, but not as much.

My mom has fount a job here in the city! She and my sister are looking for a place to rent and they will be moving here. Right now, mom is staying with us during the week.

We really enjoyed our first family vacation to the beach. We can't wait to do it again. It was really nice not having anything we had to do, or anywhere we had to be.

I started back to school. I'm only taking 6 hours this semester to help ease back into it. My first week in and I love it!

Michael and I celebrated our 7th anniversary! I'm so thankful God blessed me with him as my husband. He does so much for our family, and does it without complaint. We are definitely blessed to have him in our lives.

I'll try to post pictures soon.

  1. So nice to hear an update from you all. Wow, 5, 3 and 1...hard to believe. They grow up so fast, don't they?

    I didn't realize Alli was starting Kindergarten this year. So she is in the same class as the boys. I'm glad she likes her teacher and things are going well for you all.

    We miss you and love you bunches!
