    March 5 – Tiago’s First Haircut!

    No Comments

    The Scraggly Hair… He was definitely in need of his first hair cut.Β He looks so big now! And I love that I can see his eyes.

    THEN… Millie decided to give herself her 2nd Hair cut@!@! as she told Joel today – “I’m the only one that cuts my hair!”

    And Tiago is being such a pill at church πŸ™ Β He WON’T go to nursery πŸ™ We’ve tried all of our tricks and he just throws a big old fit until he gets his way. Then he falls asleep in the 3rd hour.

    But it all ended well with the delicious Rolls that Ben made for dinner πŸ™‚

    Doritos Commercial

    I kept expecting a fun doritos commercial during the Super Bowl but it never came. This kid with his Cheeze Its would have done the job!

    And I’m sad to report that Ago and Millie are addicted to chips right now.

    18 MONTHS

    Turned 18 months on December 1st.

    Cried for 15 minutes because I wouldn’t let him go to nursery with a cold.

    This kid makes us laugh. He loves to be in the mix with all of the other kids.

    He throws big fits when he wakes up and when you try to confine him but if you give him some space he will just play for hours.

    He still loves his milk and food and weighs a TON – 30lbs.

    He has the best smile. He loves Brewer. He loves to tease. He loves to hit. He often hits other kids that he feels threatened by.

    Tiago plays a mean game of catch and still loves to dribble the soccer ball.

    He doesn’t talk yet but he babbles quite a bit now and will try to repeat when he’s in the right mood – BUT he undertsands everything. It always amazes me how much they “get it” at this age.

    He still sleeps in our closet with his special blanket and music box. he sleeps from 8pm – 8am pretty much every night. He is finally starting to get a mouth full of teeth He had 8 for forever, Now he has maybe 15?

    My HOME crew

    No Comments

    when all the kids are off at school this is what I’m still up against:


    Ray is pretty easy. He does his Upstart Computer Homework every day after we take Rose to school. Then he gets a little bit of tablet time. He is self sufficient and doesn’t demand much. My biggest problem with him is that he will play the tablet and disappear = playing way tooo much.

    Millie still runs the house. I am trying to potty train but she and I are both lazy. She loves to snuggle with me and watch shows or kids Utube crazy homemade videos. I usually snuggle with her and rest while Ray does his homework.

    Tiago is ready for a nap right after we drop Rose off. He takes a good 2-3 hour nap every afternoon. He is learning to yell and use his voice and communicates a lot with his actions. He is so much fun to chill and laugh with.

    Do the “-Ago, do the “-Ago”

    Tiago is our entertainment. He loves music and always throws his hands in the air. We find ourselves hovering around him doing the “Ago” Dance and laughing.

    This dance was after an inspiring FHE about education and doing good in school!

    I am SOOO EXCITED! We went to the RSL game on Saturday night and BENJI! babysat for us! from 7-10:30! He got all of the kids in bed and everything was perfect. Do you know what this means!!!!

    We took Tiago to the game to make sure that it would be a good experience and it was! He did awesome babysitting and it was an awesome RSL game – they pulled off the win against the top ranked team in their division! Shannon and Kelsey were pretty fun too πŸ™‚

    IMG_20160820_201843 IMG_20160820_204417 IMG_20160820_204512 IMG_20160820_230618_01

    This summer was the turning point for me. I was able to leave some or all of the kids with Benji for short amounts of time. I felt like I had so much FREEDOM πŸ™‚ I often went to the grocery store during nap time. once I took the girls shopping. I even got my tires rotated and oil changed on time!! It’s a whole new world. But now he’s back in school πŸ™

    girls night

    No Comments

    the boys left for Father and Sons and the girls partied! We couldn’t let them have all of the fun so we headed to the PG pool!


    Then we spent an hour or two at McDonalds! Dinner, play place, Fudge Sundays…

    IMG_20160812_174101 IMG_20160812_174409 IMG_20160812_174424 IMG_20160812_174511 IMG_20160812_174926 IMG_20160812_175905 IMG_20160812_181940 IMG_20160812_183127 IMG_20160812_183247 IMG_20160812_183640

    And then Tiago and Millie went to bed before 8:00 and Cali, Rose, and I stayed up watching movies! Teen Beach #2 and My Girl.


    Saturday morning we turned on My Girl 2 while we waited for the boys to get home. It was fun to hang out with my girlies. Maybe next year Tiago can be a boy πŸ™‚

    My baby is 1!!


    Time flies! I love this little guy. He is standing all of the time but no steps. He has 6 teeth. He LOVES his bed and his tag on his blanket and his Mobile Music to fall asleep. Tiago usually gets called Ago – not ago but how do you spell that?? Anyway. He gives the best snuggles. He loves to explore when he is in his own home and knows we are close by. He usually sleeps through the night but every now and then he wakes up and all he needs is me to hold him. I secretly like it. We had a lunch time birthday party. Tiago was pretty chill through the whole thing.

    Grandma and Grandpa came over to celebrate – They gave Tiago a Buddy Ball πŸ™‚

    I decided on a cookie monster cake. Quick but still Cute. Tiago liked the cake but he didn’t dive into it like I thought he would.

    I love some of these expressions he does! He still refuses to say mom! He says Dad, ba ba, Brewer but hasn’t even gotten close to ma ma.

    Kelsey did her best to entertain but the target sticker only lasted so long


    Tiago got his first sucker on the drive to California. He is so cute and curious.
