Klaire ~ 12 months

CRAZY! That's all I can say about how fast K's first year has gone by!! She is meeting so many milestones every day! This sweet girl is 21 lbs and growing like a weed, though still tiny. She says mama, dada, Meme (John's mom), bye bye, go, outside or "side" as she says, lol, and baby. Not a lot, but sweet all the same. She still has only one tooth, bless her, it's going to be rough when they all come in at once!! Sleeping is come and go. For a couple of weeks she would sleep through the night in her room, and then some nights she ends up with us. She is taking whole milk and still nursing 2-3X a day. No bottles, only sippy cups. She is also taking 1 cup of juice a day, only because her iron is low and she needs it with the supplements to help absorb the iron, as well as mask the taste. She is still in size 3 diaper and is wearing 18-24 mths clothes, size 3 shoe. She is eating all table foods and is not picky. She shovels food every meal like she has had it for the first time. She loves to play with hair, and constantly has both her hands in mine. She also has a stuffed horse that she is growing fond of and loves baby dolls. She has really completed our family, and I thank God everyday for all of my kiddos!

Klaire's birthday party

We celebrated Klaire's birthday a day early. Her theme was hot pink/white/black leopard & zebra prints. All in all, I believe we had a little over 30 family members & friends. Poor baby though was NOT impressed with everyone singing to her. She started screaming as soon as we started. But boy oh boy was she a BIG GIRL when it came to open presents! Miss Priss is starting young, HA! Anyway, we had a wonderful celebration & can't believe it came so fast!

Date night

I met the girls (Shea & Chan) at the mall for a play date. It was a little hectic and the kiddos were more restless than usual. (And I only had Klaire for most of the time) Mackey took the boys out to eat and then had ice cream before meeting me at the mall. That night John & I went out for a date night. My parents kept the kids. We went and saw Just Go With It. It was a cute movie and it was nice to have a night out. We haven't left Klaire much since I have been nursing, but since she is almost 1 we are cutting back and introducing the cup more. :)

HOGS Baseball

John, Klaire, & I went to the Hogs baseball game tonight. It was the first baseball Hogs game that we have been too. The boys didn't want to go, so I decked Miss Priss out and we followed Andrea & Mackey up there. We had a great time and even got to visit with Shea, Jeremy, & Madden at the game as well.

Kylan's school dance

Kylan had a school dance for good behavior...hard to belive my little boy is old enough for dances, lol!! I think 3 girls ask him to dance (of course he wouldn't, lol). So glad he isn't too big to take pics with me yet!!


The boys have been fishing a lot lately! They LOVE it and have caught quite a bit every time they have gone!

So I have been TERRIBLE about blogging here are some updates....Andrea & Mackey lost their house to a fire. :( They are devastated and tired but making it. They stayed at mom & dad's for a few days until they could get moved back into Andrea's old house. Say a prayer for them. God has plans for them!! In other news, Klaire finally has a tooth coming in on the bottom. I can see it, but it has not broken the surface. She is also sleeping in her room, in her crib, now. She got back in bed with us once in the last 7 nights, but still a MAJOR improvement. 3 of those nights she even slept through the night w/o getting up, which is a HUGE ordeal for us!! We had almost forgot what sleep was, lol!! Not much else going on...planning/preparing for the big #1 for Miss Priss. So hard to believe!!!
