Growing so fast

So we made our first family trip this past weekend. I was so nervous about taking them to a strange place for the weekend, But everything went great. I threw a baby shower for my best friend in Grand Junction which is about a 4 hour drive. The babies were wonderful. They slept great at a strange house and even did well with all the people there on Saturday. My sister took Collin and Gracie over night on Saturday. It was so nice to have just one baby. Don't get me wrong I missed the other 2 like crazy. Aaron and I both went to bed with something tugging on our hearts. Needless to say we were so glad to go pick them back. All in all it was a great trip. We definitely will be making more trips this summer.

Gracie is Miss Independent she will be the first to do it all. The other day I found her on all fours and rocking back in forth. This means we will have a crawler soon. Although I can't wait for them to be mobile I am sure I will regret saying that some day. LOL She is cutting her bottom 2 teeth, they haven't made it through yet but there working on it. She figures she will out do the boys and get both at once. She finally is sleeping through the night now yayyyy me. Although we had to put her in a different room then the boys. We had to let her cry it out, she has learned to put her own binky back in so we leave 3 or 4 in her crib so she can find one easily.

Blaine is our eater. He loves his food and will eat anything. I think that he may pass up Collin here soon weight wise. He is taller then Collin now but not quit as chunky yet. He is our most active one when it comes to playing. He loves his walker and he takes it very serious. He chases anything that moves in the house and if he wants something he knows exactly how to get to it. He thinks everything is a Jumper when he is standing on you he will start bouncing like you are going to make him bounce. He has his first tooth and he wasn't grumpy when it came through so we will See how the next one goes.

Collin is my lazy little man. He will sit in his toys and look around but doesn't do much beyond that. Lately he has been running a fever hopefully do to teething. He also has one of his bottom teeth. I think he is getting the other one because he has been a grumpy boy lately which is so out of character for him. It so cute to see him smile with his little tooth showing. I am so in love with all of them.

I can't believe they are already 7 months old it felt like yesterday they were still in my tummy..

Jibber Jabber

Well I have to say that my house gets louder and louder everyday. As they get bigger more noise comes out of them. I can't say that I mind though it is rather cute.. Solid food is going well Blaine and Gracie will eat just about anything, Collin on the other hand is a little picky but if you encourage him, he does a lot better. They all got there first teething cookie the other day and absolutely loved it. Collin did not know what to think of it and gagged a little but the second time we tried it he was ok with it.

I cannot wait for summer to be here. We have a nice back yard and I can't wait to hang in it. I want the babies to be able to wear all there cute summer clothes and hang outside. I feel Like we have been cooped up in this house for ever. This summer we will have more visitors and be able to go do a lot more. In 2 weeks I am taking the babies to Grand Junction with me so I can throw my friend Jess a Baby shower. My husband keeps asking why I don't just leave them here, But I can't find the heart to do that. I can imagine myself getting separation anxiety and maybe a little sick to my stomach without them. So call me crazy but we are packing up and going. I am definitely nervous about it. They do not do well sleeping other places but I am going to do my best to bring what makes them feel comfortable. I am sure I will have lots of help there.

I am looking forward to meeting my best friend Kristin's Son for the first time, And seeing my sweet little Kylie. Kristin was there when I had my babies and I was there for her first. Nickolas is almost 5 months old now and I still have yet to meet him I can't wait. After all him and My little Gracie have an arranged marriage. LOL

Anyways I am loving being back in Colorado being near family is very important to me. I want my babies to grow up with a cousin near by and Grandma and Pa Pa a 10 min drive away. Although I do wish Aaron's parents were closer so they could get to know them as well. I am so blessed have such wonderful people in my life, and a husband that I love very much although he can be a pain in my ass at times. I feel like I have 4 kids instead of 3 but that's what makes my life so fun.

Well until the next time.......
