These days, life has been CRAZY! I love my babies, but the adjustment to have 2 kids was so much harder than I expected. Mckenzie has had some issues with nursing and without going into all the details I have had to spend a great deal of time with either my sweet girl attached to me or hooked up to a breast pump. So, I have had to learn to let things go. My house is dirtier than it's ever been, Addie's hair doesn't get done very much. My car is a disaster with toys and trash strewn throughout. I haven't blogged in almost 3 months. I finally downloaded pictures from my camera (the last download was 9/19). I'm lucky if I get a shower everyday and brush my teeth. Shaving my legs is a thing of the past. I never got a birth announcement out for Mckenzie and still haven't written my thank you cards for all the gifts I received (i know that's bad). And finally, when signing up for the potluck at Addie's preschool instead of signing up for some cool dessert I could whip up or some delicious specialty, salad or side dish like all the other moms, I signed up for CHIPS. I was the only one who took the easy route. But, my item was the only one completely gone with none to bring home. CHIPS describes my life these days. :)

Here are a few photos of the craziness and fun we've had with our sweet, sweet Mckenzie and big sis Addie.

Addie says "Mommy, I want to pump my boobies too!" There has been a lot of pumping going on around here.

A fun visit to the El Dorado duck pond

I got a smiling picture

Early Arrival

Our little girl was due Sept 7 but decided she couldn't wait. So, I got out of work one day earlier than I had planned and had a healthy baby girl instead of going to work. :)

We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and dun dun dun......

It's another girl!!!

We are really excited and so happy Addie gets a sister! Not sure if I will be so excited about this during the teenage years. You'll have to check back to the blog then. But in the meantime we're thrilled and Brian is totally excited to be completely outnumbered by all his girls!

Time is flying

Addie had her 2nd birthday on Saturday and had a great time. I can't believe it has already been 2 years since she joined our family. We had a small get together with family and a couple of friends complete with a jumper (which we got to use for free...woohoo!), pinata, face painting (thanks Cece!), and sidewalk chalk! Please tell me that the rest of her growing up will be a little slower than the first 2 years....i may be changing my tune during the teenage years though huh?

She was so cute and CLEAN at the beginning of the party
(didn't last)

By the end, she had rubbed sidewalk all over her face and clothing, lost her hair clips, and was exhausted!
(although she looks upset, this is her saying "cheese")

My attempt at a monkey cake and cupcakes to appease those who didn't want anything to do with the animal. Addie LOVED having a monkey cake and made monkey sounds all day.

Happy Birthday to Addison!

Cousins and pals!

A long break...

I haven't forgotten about my blog, just been really, really, really tired and not feeling so well the last couple of months. The last thing I wanted to do was get on the computer and update my blog. So, I'm back. So why the long break? Well, we're having baby #2!!!!! Thus explaining the really, really, really tired and not feeling well. But, I'm finally starting to feel alive again and am really excited about this new addition. We keep asking Addie if she wants a boy baby or a girl baby, and she repeats whatever gender we have said second. I think she'll just be happy with a baby! Baby is due Sept 7 and we are all ecstatic!
