9 well almost 10

At Henry's 9 month check up (which is really closer to 10 months) here are his stats

Weight- 16 pounds 5 ounces (less then 3%)

27 inches (less then 5%)

and his head is 44 centimeters (less then 10%)

most of that was hair I think:)

He is crawling EVERYWHERE but it's a modified army crawl. He uses both arms and one toe (I must get a video to show you)

Says "dada" but it means lot of things!!

LOVES food!!

HATES broccoli

Yells when he wants attention

When holding him he has to touch or rather grab your face

Thinks the older kids are funny and has the BEST laugh

Has a great smile

When told no he smiles and laughs

Still has NO teeth

Starting to stand up on his own

Has crazy hair that we just can't bring ourselves to cut


We love our Henry boy and can't believe how fast the time is going. He is such a fun and makes my heart melt daily many times a day in fact!! I love to kiss his sweet face and love to get his sweet kisses in return! I love to watch him explore and find new things. I love love love being his mommy!!!

Wrestling knowledge update

Well I was hoping to know more but I am even more confussed! For example I hear Will tell Jordan he need to practice and do some "duck walks." Are you kidding me?!?! What is walking around like a duck flapping your arms going to do for you? Ummm well that's not really what it is. So why name it that? I don't know a man named it I'm sure and I don't pretend to know what goes on in their heads!

Next Kenzie is being used as a practice partner and I am watching trying to get something out of if...NOTHING she gets some points (not sure why or how) And I was watching (really I was). I just don't get it...and I am BORED and it all looks the same...what the heck is wrong with me..

I am a bad mom? This must be how Will feels when I show him a new dress for Kenzie or a bathing suit or hair bows...Okay that's it I am NOT a bad mom I am girl and we aren't made to know these things...It's a boy thing...Like dirt and bugs....

Okay people that's all I have today I WILL learn something and I'll keep you updated!!

Fun stuff

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to... Bob and Kenzie play "car" or "mommy" and they use the fireplace as the car. Bob is always the kid and Kenzie is always mommy. When they play Bob goes around saying "mommy" and if I answer he says "no not call you." Kind of makes me sad..
this makes me laugh. Will is holding Jared and Morgan's little one and Henry. They are 8 weeks apart and Henry is older!! You wouldn't know it from the picture:)

LOVE his smile. I was trying to take his 9month picture and he wanted to play

The kids waiting for Daddy to come home! LOVE IT!!

And my baby crawling around. I was hiding and he found me.

Things have been crazy with four at home every day but I love it. Most days. Kenzie is starting a musical theatre camp in a week. Jordan is still wrestling (I still don't understand it!) Bob is two and we know it now! And Henry is just a relaxing easy baby!

1st and last

Just for fun let's see how big Jordan has gotten this year!! Picture one is day one of school and picture two is the last day. Don't mind my head being cut off Kenzie isn't the best at taking pictures yet. OH and the BIG belly in #1 is baby Henry who came 2 weeks later. 1st day of School!!!

Last day. Wow he has grown a lot and smarter too!! He made the gate program in school. In one area he scored a 97 (out of of 100) He also got a few 4s on his report card which means he is above grade level in those areas. Such a proud mommy!!

This has been a hard year. Starting school and adding a new baby. But it's been fun too!!!

I can't wait to see all the things he does next year and Kenzie too!!

13 years.....

At 16 you shouldn't have to say goodbye to a friend. A friend who was more like family. I was in Disneyworld and he was in pain. When I came home my mom told he was gone and I was upset (devesated is more like it). And I was hurt, mad, sad, confussed... I didn't get to go to the funeral because my mom didn't think my brother nor I would want to so she didn't tell us while we were on the trip. (I wish she would have let me make that choice. I don't know what I would I have done but at least it would have been my choice and not hers)

Every summer was spent with my friend Jake and his sisters and family. We would go to the lake. I have some fun memories. One that sticks out is him being super exctied that 93.7 come in the whole way to the lake. Makes me smile to think of the excited way to told us all. He was fearless. I sometimes wonder if that is the reason behind Bob's fearlessiness (is that a word) having Jacob as a middle name must make you fearless:)

My dad likes to tell me when we were two Jake walked right up to me and pushed me down...I am sure he did it cause I was so cute and that is how boys show their love....

The last time I saw Jake we watched the movie "The Little Rascals" and he made me a Chocolate shake..which I was sure was going to be gross and make with some kind of weird boy thing in it..But I was wrong it was made with Chocolate, icecream and lots of love!

I can't believe it's been so long and I can remember the last time I saw time like it was yesterday. I always wondered what kind of man he would have been..I can't wait to get to heaven and hug him and let him know how much I missed him and loved him.

Today I think I'll watch The little Rascals and make the kids a chocolate shake....

I will also cuddle my kids a little more and kiss them a lot because you never know how much time you have.

Kiss the ones you love today and let the ones you love know it. Forgive those who need it. And smile at all those you see!
