Big Girls

Oh my big girls.... it's amazing how they aged so much when Libby arrived. Ella is finishing up her first year of big school. She is reading like a champ. I'm so proud of her! I worried about her being so young, but she has had a fantastic year! Her teacher, Ms. Roberts, has really pushed her and Ella has really broken out of her little shell.... Maybe to much. Ella loves to draw, read, write, dance, and pretend she is grown. I have to remind her daily that she is 5, not 25.

Loves to get her hair straightened every once in awhile 
Like I said, 5 going on 25

Emmecat is finishing up her year at St. Mark's Early Learning Center.... Hard to believe.... She loves school and her best friend, Hannah! She is in a room full of boys... Only three girls... I'm pretty sure those girls run that room. She has had a fabulous year with fabulous teachers. She wants to do everything her big sister does... Each night when she has to put a pull-up on it absolutely breaks her heart... This girl loves being outside.... I hate it's getting so hot and miserable...emory a newest obsession is wearing headbands.... We have about 40... I finally got smart and started making them myself... I'm looking forward to this summer with my big girls.... Lots of change is coming our way.... We are excited!

Month Three

I can't believe I am already blogging about another month that has flown by. You, my love, have brought so much happiness to your mommy's heart. It's not that I was "unhappy" before you, but wow, I didn't know what I was missing not having a Libby Craker in my life. Being a mom of three is exhausting. There is always something to do, somewhere to be, or someone that needs something. When the big girls are at school, we snuggle a lot, and I rock you a lot, and I also talk to you in crazy voices and in return, you give me some crazy looks. You have started smiling this month. It melts my heart and makes me laugh every time you grin. You have two different smiles, the crooked smile and the ear to ear smile. I go back to work on Monday. The thought of leaving you makes my stomach hurt and makes me teary. I keep telling myself it is only 3 weeks and we can do anything for 3 weeks. Then, it will be OVER! Our awesome babysitter will have you here everyday and your big sister Ella is super excited that I am going to be at school with her now. It's been since January 10. That is a long time! You are not sleeping all night yet, and if you could arrange that, it would be great. You get up around 2 or 3, and then again around 6:30. You like to sleep a lot still.... mostly. A few weeks ago you were not seeming like your sweet self, so I took you to see the pediatrician. I knew something was up, and it was.... you had a double ear infection. What 10 week old baby gets a double ear infection? You, that's who! You also had your first trip to the beach this month. You thought it was bright, which it was... You hung out under a tent, with a hat, covered in sunscreen. You were the cutest little beach baby. We love and adore you Libby Lou, and you are so loved.
