Sister is at the age where she thinks that EVERYTHING is hers. Thumper can't touch anything without Sister telling her NO! Sometimes she will take something away and give something else in it's place. The gesture is nice but she has to learn to share and not be so bossy with her sister. One of these days Thumper is gonna get big enough to defend herself and the fight will be on.
I love those last few snuggles before putting her to bed. She's such a mommy's girl and I love it. Sometimes I wish she weren't so attached to me but for the most part, it's pretty dang awesome. She's my last baby and I am trying really hard to enjoy every single moment. They are not babies long enough. Time goes by too fast!

She's always wanting to help. She loves to be in the kitchen and help "shake" things. That's her way of saying "stir." Tonight she was helping with the spaghetti sauce. She got a little tickled when Bubba asked us to look at the camera. She can be such a silly girl. I get a little aggravated at her some times when she's trying to "help" but I know that one of these days she'll no longer want to. Sometimes, we take the little things for granted. I'm trying not to do that so much these days. Time goes by way too quickly!
Story time with the girls can be very challenging. Sister loves to hear the story and actually tell me what I'm reading but Thumper, well she likes to try and eat the book. Sister doesn't like it much when Thumper tries to eat her books, lol. There are lots of NO and STOP being said. Sometimes we have to give Thumper her own book and it distracts her enough to let Sister and I make it through a few pages. Fun Times!

My boy gives the best shoulder massage ever!! He's been massaging my shoulders since he was about two years old. If I'm really tense or have a headache, all I have to do is call on my Bubba to give me a good shoulder massage. He's got big strong hands and really helps his momma out. I love that boy!

My little cheerleader had so much fun at the games tonight. She sang, she danced, she entertained! She loves to cheer for the Bearkats, especially her Bubba. She had fun playing with Kyndal and Hallie too. Those three girls giggled and screamed the entire 3 hours that we were there. I love my little cheerleader!

There is nothing like sweet butterfly kisses from my sweet girl. I love that girl! She's high strung and has a mind of her own. Keeping up with her, well it keeps me on my toes. There are often times where I just want to pull my hair out from trying to deal with her but in the end, those sweet hugs and kisses make it all better. She's so loving and can be the sweetest thing ever. I'm so thankful for her and her butterfly kisses!!!

Every six weeks for the last two years Blake has had to do a science project. In the beginning, the projects were pretty fun. Now, they have become an annoyance. We still have fun at times with them but I'd rather not have to do this every six weeks. His science teacher is pushing 80 and really should consider staying home and gardening or something. He's a really nice man and all but his teaching days are over, the class has become somewhat of a joke. Heck, what am I saying, a lot of his classes have become a joke. Teachers just aren't "teachers" anymore. It's really sad!

She's not quite crawling yet but she's close. She is getting up on her hands and toes and crawfishing. She goes backwards and can move from one side of the room to the other rather quickly. It's really cute but she gets a little aggravated that she can't go where she wants to go. Hitting these milestones are bittersweet. I love that she's growing and progressing but at the same time it makes me sad that my baby is growing so fast.

You can't exactly tell it by looking at her in this photo but this child almost NEVER sleeps anymore. I don't know what is going on or how to fix it but we are both suffering from sleep deprivation. I love her to the moon and back but if she doesn't start sleeping soon we will both be in the looney bin.

I didn't forget my 365 but almost ran out of time before I got around to doing it. Lame and boring but still a pic with my girlies. Neither of them wanted to sleep last night and their mommy is worn out. My office is a mess and I almost didn't post this pic but the girls are so cute the office can be overlooked.

I couldn't be more proud of my boy! The team lost both games in the tournament today but my baby played his heart out. He played the entire game both times. He's often been overlooked for his accomplishments so he and I both were shocked when the coach handed him the trophy. He praised him for a job well done and my boy was beaming. Dirk, look out, Blake is in da'house!!

Look at that face. Is it not the sweetest thing you've ever seen? She's really starting to develop a personality of her own now. She's amazing! And Blake, well I'm going to make a photographer out of that boy yet. He got his finger in front of the flash in this photo but I still thought it was cute and he did a good job.

Blake had his first basketball game of the new year and the girls and I had to go cheer him on. Now that I have two babies, it gets a little hard managing things but I love, love, love to go watch my boy play ball. He's a great ball player and he really loves playing. I don't know what I'd do without that kid!
We set the timer on the camera for this photo. I think we took about 25 before we finally got one that was half way decent. Either he was unhappy with the way he looked or I was unhappy with the way I looked. Hannah Claire, well she was just getting unhappy all together, lol.
I have never been one to like my picture taken. I've always been the one behind the camera. My mom passed away ten years ago and I have very few photos of her. Only a handful of photos of my youth exist. I have my memories and no one can ever take that but for my kids, I want lots and lots of photos. My husband laughs at me sometimes because I take so many pictures of the kids. I don't want to miss a single milestone. They grow up too fast and if you're not careful you'll miss something important. My friend Girl is an amazing photographer and she did a 365 project last year. She's an artist and was very creative with her pictures. It was inspiring to watch her from afar and admire her work. She inspired me to take photos of myself with my children. It is going to be really hard and often times very boring but I WILL take one picture a day for the next year. I WILL do this for my children. I'm not an artist but a picture a day with one of my beautiful children should be a doable task. Wish me luck!
