On March 20th Paul reluctantly took the training wheels off his bike and gave riding a two wheeler a try. He was so afraid but I knew he was long since ready. He was a complete natural and was riding on his own after two pushes! All four kids can ride a bike on their [...]
This year for April fools I was subbing so I was not able to spend a lot of time creating something fabulous for April Fools day. I had to resort to some easier things that were just as much fun. I switched the sugar bowl with salt and offered the kids hot tea with dinner. [...]
Our kids are getting so big but they still enjoy a simple egg hunt or two. The kids looked adorable as always. We had a nice day at home. Grammy, Jake, Joey and Wyatt came over for dinner. Annie folded the napkins into bunny faces while the other girls made place cards for the table.
The kids always love going to the GoDaddy family picnic and this year was no different. Because it was on the day before Easter they did an Easter egg hunt. The kids had fun searching for the eggs. They each were able to pick a snack. Daddy got to hold all their treasures while they [...]
Paul isn’t a very artsy boy and he rarely slows down enough with pencil or crayon in hand to make a drawing so this piece of art is a real treasure. It is a picture of Mommy and Paul. I am the one on the left in the pink shirt and he is the boy [...]
Paul lost his first tooth. It was a tricky one to loose because it was his tooth that was fused together so one side was free about a week before the other side. He finally let Mommy pull it and was surprised that it barely hurt when I pulled it out.
Paul is about to lose his first tooth. Remember how emotionally attached I was to it when the other teeth came in. This is the tooth that was with him the moment I met him. It is special to us all. Then we came to understand that it was two teeth fused together, which made [...]
Paul is still so tiny that he can be rolled up into a blanket and cuddled with. He loves to be snuggled close still which is nice because I know it is only a matter of moments until he is no longer interested. Here he is all snuggled up in a blanket the other night. [...]
The other day Paul received the Attitude is everything award at school. Not only is this a crazy award of mediocrity but even my Son was quite disinterested in it. That being said Paul is kind of disinterested in most things that don’t involve video games or running and jumping. However his blah mood over [...]
Paul swallowed a penny. Scared him half to death. He cried for a while and says he can still feel it in his little intestines. When I asked how he knew the word intestines he told me he saw it on Magic Schoolbus at school. Good thing he is learning about intestines, bad thing they [...]
Some dates always come to mind. Like your wedding date, or the day your children were born. On this day 4 years ago we met the most perfect little man. He has been such a blessing to our family. I remember that day like it was yesterday and I suspect some of you do as [...]
Kimberly: 1st Christmas: Elephant cookie and baby bib with picture 2nd Christmas: Gingerbread house with crayons on it 3rd Christmas: polar bear with the ice cream (We can’t find this one this year. Hoping it turns up!) 4th Christmas: reindeer that says Daughter 5th Christmas: Rose Fairy (which is perfect because she loves her middle [...]
Our insurance finally changed Paul’s birthdate so he can finally go to his well appointments at his birthday. He had a great well check today. He is in the 25th percentile for weight and height. He is doing well on all accounts. This is nothing short of a miracle. As the Dr. was examining him [...]
Paul’s basketball season ended on Saturday. Unfortunately we were unable to make the game because of Annie and Kimberly’s meet. We were able to catch some lunch after the meet and make it to his awards ceremony. He loves his trophy.
We carved our pumpkins the day before Halloween. With our busy schedule it was a mad dash to clean them and carve them but we got the job done. The kids always love getting dirty and scooping out the goo. This year was no exception. Kimberly wanted a cyclops. Annie wanted her pumpkin carved into [...]
This year we decided to allow the children to do more sports. We have taken complete breaks and have had much success at just allowing our children to be children. However, they were really pushing to do things. Kimberly is determined that she is going to be an olympic swimmer and Madeline wants to dance, [...]
We have a little boy who lives here who is obsessed with the idea that he is Mom’s favorite. He tells everyone. He tries to make the other girls feel inferior. It is insane. The other week he even went so far as to tell his sisters that he is the favorite because I went [...]
The kids were invited to a birthday party at an indoor swimming pool. They were so excited since they had only been to an indoor pool once at a hotel in Seattle. They had such fun hanging out and playing with their friends. Even though Annie and Kimberly had already swam for 3 hours that [...]
Not sure if it is just my kids or if everyone’s kids love pets as much as mine do. When Paul got invited to a birthday party with Jungle Jill he was so excited and his sisters were green with envy. He enjoyed seeing all the animals and was happy to get to hold Snickers [...]
It is unbelievable that 4 years have passed since we first saw Paul’s face. It seems like we have known him longer than that. He is so much a part of us. Though Paul’s boyish energy can be trying I cannot imagine the Brown Family without him in it. Paul tells the girls that he [...]« Previous Entries
