Millie turned 3!!!

My baby girl turned 3 today!
A couple of words that come to mind when describing Millie's personality would be....
I could keep them coming... But that pretty much sums her up:)
She is very difficult at times, but we sure do love her! She keeps us on our toes to say the least.
I literally laugh all day long at all the sassy/silly things she comes up with! Millie is not scared of anything which makes it hard to threaten her into doing something else!
She talks and talks and talks! She says things I cannot believe a 3 year old knows.
She is wise beyond her years!
Millie LOVES babies, dolls, stuffed animals, real animals, purses/bags, dancing, singing, Millie is very much a girly girl but don't think she isn't tough! She will tell you where to go and how to get there without even breaking a sweat:)
I feel like Millie was just my tiny baby and now she is 3!?  It makes me a little sad sitting her realizing how fast time flies(little tear)!
We LOVE little sassy Millie!!!

Happy birthday to Millie #3

What we've been up to:)

We had a baby and I did it all NATURAL, no medication!!
I'm pretty proud of myself:)

Then Millie was introduced to her new brother!

Then we got ready to leave the hospital...

And then we were home sweet home!

Jake has been doing a lot of holding Finn!

Millie has been doing a lot of holding Finn...

And more holding!
And Finn is happy!

Our little man LOVES to suck any finger he can find:)

Did I mention Millie loves him?

Did I mention Jake loves him!?

Yummm, a thumb!

How is this for a funny finger choice?
Millie is sharing all of her toys with her baby brother!

When you have this much hair you are sure to get a bad case of bed head:)
Goodnight, we are tired...(well at least I am!)

Dear baby boy....#4

Today is the day!!Right?I just returned from the doctor. Dilated to a 3 and 85% effaced. He said your head is even lower and you seem ready! Why aren't you ready??

I had to shave again today. So request #1 just went out the window!

Your daddy and mommy have been married 6 years TODAY! This would be a beautiful time to enter the world:)

Hopefully we will see you soon, I just had daddy go get some pregnancy pizza from Trio...Everyone says it helps mommies go into labor:) We'll see!?

I know you'll come when you want but it will make a good story if you actually came after we eat our pregnancy/anniversary pizza<3

Your still patient mommy.

a : a bed or receptacle prepared by an animal and especially a bird for its eggs and young

b: Around the fifth month of pregnancy, the "nesting" instinct can set in. This is an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world.

Females of the animal kingdom are all equipped with this same need. It is a primal instinct. Just as you see birds making their nests, mothers-to-be do exactly the same thing. The act of nesting puts you in control and gives a sense of accomplishment toward birth. You may become a homebody and want to retreat into the comfort of home and familiar company, like a brooding hen. The nesting urge can also be seen as a sign of the onset of labor when it occurs close to 40 weeks of pregnancy.

I can think of 20 more things to do that feel equally important!

Organizing the office

Taking the kids to dentist/doctor apts

organizing the garage/storage unit

baby boy needs a blanket of course!

Organizing game closet

Millie's birthday pictures
madly cleaning every carpet area in my house.
A long overdue project!

Clothing washed and ready to wear

linen closet... And every other closet in the home!

bedding washed and ready to go!

You would not believe the piles I have ready for D.I. (next thing on the "to do list")

I have been doing crazy amounts of hair( so if you need one more apt before mister comes, let me know!)

Everything feels like an emergency and I have crazy amounts of energy... I'm here to tell you nesting is a REAL THING PEOPLE!! :)

5, 4, 3, 2, 1.....Happy NEW YEAR 2012!


Millie Loved this part of the night and kept asking to go do it again!
(what a fun age!)
Savannah looked as if it was her favorite part of the night as well!?

We have always ran outside beating pots and pans with spoons on New Years... I'll never forget the time when I was about Jake's age and broke my mom's le creuset pot lid....I thought My life might end in 1990! I asked her this year if she remembered? She didn't really but she said she still has one pot without a lid and now she remembers why! My sister also remembered it clearly, we must have been scared :)

Ringing in the NEW YEAR! Dance party!

First of all, I SUCK at dancing! I swore I would not partake in the non-sense... But I couldn't resist. By the looks of it nobody could!
These pictures kill me! I thought I might go into labor! I have not sweat that hard in about 9 months!

Lexy claims she is the best... I've never played
and I'd say I gave her a run for her money;)
(notice the scores!)

Bring it!

Gloat much Lexy?

We danced to.... I like big butts and I cannot lie! LOL!
(Appropriate song for me:)

Oh ya!

I believe this move was called the RODEO!

We were seriously HYSTERICAL!

Jake and Xander got in on the fun!
I told them I was going to sign them up for a hip hop class instead of baseball and football!
They were pretty good!

Millie and Solomon LOVED it and did not want to give anybody else a turn!
And I seriously need to start Millie in Dance! She has recently become obsessed!

As you can see in this picture.. Millie did not want Xander and I to have a turn!

Lexy and Jake! Nice moves guys!

Even Brad and Logan!

The sole purpose of this picture is to look at what in the world Millie is doing in the background!!??
I about fell out of my chair laughing so hard when I looked at this and every time after!!
