Well I know it has been a little while since I have updated. I will post several post as they deserve a separate post.

Madison is doing great 99 percent of the time in going potty.
Austin still has no care to when you ask him to go he will say "i went potty last night" or "I have elmo diappy on"

Alexis is tolerating her belly a little better. I believe she is gaining weight a lot now. We will see when we go back for our second Flu shot.

We will close on our home (refinance) dec 5th or 7th. AMEN!

Madison said to Austin yesterday as she laid on the couch with her pillow, "Austin, Do me a favor"
Austin: "what sissy"
Madison: "Can you please get my doll of the counter in the kitchen?"
Austin: "Sure sissy"
it was so funny!

In the car the other day We started singing the muffin man and all of a sudden Austin started quoting shrek "Do you know the Muffin Man?, the Muffin man, yes the Muffin man"

We put up our Christmas tree. The kids still are so excited about it!

Fall pics are here!

I took our family (well i was behind the camera mostly) at Cannonsburgh park in Murfreesboro. We love the scenery there! The most amazing part Austin cooperated!!

blogger gave up on me so I will post more pics later


We are still doing so well with potty training. She is going everything in the potty 98 percent of the time.

Austin can draw a spider, all on his own I do not know how he knew how to because it is not one of the things he asks us to draw all the time. but i need to take pics of it because it is so CUTE!

Nana got them both guitars could not find a "boy" piano at this time.

We went to the Discovery center last saturday and saw the new area they built onto the exsisting building we had so much fun there. Austin loved the extra extra LARGE train table. Madison loved the grocery store!

We are refinancing our home so some light in the money area coming THANK you LORD!

We are now doing thier bday party at Steve's Fantastic Fun Zone in M'boro. Because Dec 15th is booked at the discovery center. It costs a tad more but way less than others.

Alexis is loving all her new foods she is getting! She still does not like her tummy time.

Misc that has been going on

Today we went to costco, and wild oats for some veggies.

Madison is doing so well with no accidents! Although we have to take our potty with us everywhere we go...LOL

Madison is telling Nana she wants a Guitar today and Austin he was a Pino(piano).

Austin is into his Taggy Blanket that meemaw made for him when he was a baby. I gave it back to him when i noticed he was playing with the tag on his shrek blanket he slept with and was asking for it.

We are in a financial (well some what Crisis) I have no kids right now! The little boy i have watched for almost 2 years his dad quit his job and is staying home at the moment. the 2 girls we were watching the moms job asked her to go PT from 5-9pm temporally so no need for childcare. I was going to wait tables only a couple night a week through the holidays for extra money for xmas but now if i get hired i will be working more than 2 nights until i get more kids or Adam gets a better job. I got a job offer for a full time job during the day but even having my friend giving me a great child care discount i would just about only make what i was keeping 2 kids a month. so it is not worth it plus Alexis screams with others!! My mom would but she has to stay and take care of meemaw right now.

Come Jan. the twins may be in school (free) if we get in. It will be Monday-Friday from 8:45 to 12:45p I will have to go pick them up and drop them off.

This is not good considering the twins bday is coming and Christmas.

Adams interviewing for jobs is still going.. he has been told he is over qualified several times, over confidant, or they are not paying enough. he is waiting to hear from several. So pray for that!

Austin can draw a smiley face!!

Last Sat we did grocery shopping and Sams shopping (we have not been in FOREVER ...NO MONEY)

Alexis is almost sitting up on her own, but we have some more to work on to get there.

Its getting Cold now!!

We plan on going to GA the weekend after Thanksgiving (if we have Money)

I think that is all.

9 month Check up

We went Tuesday to Alexis's 9 month check up (a little early). She only weighed 14lbs and 11 oz and 26 in. She is small like Madison but she has the chunky rolls. The dr could not believe she was that small after looking at her Rolls!! She is eating good. But since she is breastfed exclusively she said that breast milk's fat content drops between 6 mo and 9 mo so she needs whole milk in her diet like yogurt (which I give her) but she wants it once a day. Also give her milk in her oatmeal and give her Mac n cheese, butter and such. She checked her iron level and it was great. so no need for vitamins. She also said to cont giving her the iron oatmeal twice a day even if it is mixed in the fruits. She also said that the fruits and veggies she as eating does not have a lot a fat that is why she needs the stuff with milk in it. of course cont breastfeeding because it is still the best for her and her primary food source. She was not too concerned with the weight yet. she is short like her mom and well family! Thanks Mom and Dad!! As far as developmental milestones, she said she seems to be a very content baby to just lay, or sit. She is she has no care to roll around to get other places. She likes playing with her toys and watching the others. Also she said the third child tends to get shuffled around either off the floor out of the line of fire of others (the twins!) and sitting in bouncys, exersaucers, bumbos, swings, or on someones lap. And this so true! Plus she HATES her belly. We give her tummy time but she Hates it after like 10 min or less. So I will most likely get her evaluated by TEIS to give her extra boosts, plus cont her tummy time. The dr said i can call TEIS if i want but she thinks in the next few weeks I will see a change.
She got her first part of the FLU shot and the 3rd polio shot. I asked about themosol in the shots and she said that they pay more for the separated thermosol free ones so that no parent will turn down a flu shot or any shot. I was happy to hear that. We go back in one month for second part and to get the Twins flu shot.

I will add her 9 mo pic here soon!

Carters Party and Visit to Meemaw

We went to Carter's Birthday party sat 27th. We had fun! Aunt Lenis (Carters Nana) rented a bouncy thing. Weather was great! The kids had fun jumping. Madison stayed in her panties and Dry all the way there in the car! and on the way home!

She pottyed there and was AWESOME!

We went to see Meemaw after. The kids were so happy to see her and Alexis sat with meemaw a while. In the pics it looks like Meemaw is asleep but I had to use the flash and she blinked every time!
I took my mini books i made about her for her to answer some questions. I had fun with that!

After meemaws we picked up my dad and went to eat Mexican for dinner. the kids did great with him. Which I know made him smile and happy. because they usually are shy and do not talk or go up to him

Halloween Hoedown 2007

We had our annual church Hoedown. We had fun! It was Sunday 28th. here are some pics!We were hyped up on cotton candy, popcorn,and candy

Halloween things!

We had a good Halloween. That Wednesday was so BUSY. We started our morning at Opry Mill Mall with some twins club members for a stroll through the mall in our costumes before the mall opened and then lunch at Rain Forest Cafe for 99 cent kids meals! We had fun. Madison was a little scared that the Monkey above our table was going to take her balloon, she was crying and all! I had to attach it to Alexis's stroller so she would be ok.

After we left there we went to Adam's work to show off our costumes and of course ended up trick or treating around the office since everyone there and candy from their party they had earlier.

After that we went to the Murfreeboro Square for trick or treating on the square. IT WAS PACKED! we had already had a bag full from Adams work so we added more there. Lots of fun!

We went home took pics in the yard in our costumes. We ate a snack. Daddy came home and then Nana and pawpaw came over to go trick or treating with us in the neighborhood. We went on several streets. The kids were so cute saying trick or treat and thank you. Madison was chatting with everyone telling them she was Sleeping beauty and of course getting more more candy. Austin got his and was ready for the next house leaving Madison behind a lot...LOL. Alexis slept in the stroller. we waited for her.
After we went to eat at chick fila for dinner.

Here are some pics!
Madison is Sleeping Beauty, Austin is a Pirate, and Alexis is a Fairy
