Okay.. so I really gotta work on this whole blogging thing but come on.. 3 kids.. Give me a break! LOL. I know, excuses, excuses..

Okay so here's an update on the children:
Rudy will be 4 on August 11th! Soo big!
Rudy- Starts full day pre-school tomorrow!! Ahh!! I decided to put him in full day pre-school for a few reasons.. 1.) He has ALOT of energy and really needs a place to get it out! 2.) He was developmentally delayed for a while and an educational environment would be great for him. 3.) He sits at home with me all day and just helps me take care of his sisters.. I just don't want him to have to do that anymore.
Hannah and Harley will be 1 year old August 18th! Ahh!! They are 11 months now :)
Hannah- She is now standing up pretty decent (1.5 mins earlier). She crawls waay too quick for me. She loves eating her Toddler meals from Gerber and will definately tell you No when she's done by closing up her lips tight and looking the other way.. She feeds herself, but when I try its not acceptable haha. She loves to play indian (I know, I coulda phrased that better) but she puts her hand to her mouth and goes AHH while hitting her lips.. She's doing pretty good!
Harley- She is now running! Oh lord! She loves to go outside and hates to be away from her momma.. She tells you when she doesnt want you to do something by going Eh! She just learned how to clap and loves to feed herself her Toddler meals too! She just makes a bit of a bigger mess though LOL.. She refuses to crawl and can now stand up without using anything, not even hands!

Anyways, I found this picture.. It looks just like Harley, but its Nick! Crazy.. huh?
Smith family.. We are all getting ready for the big move back to housing.. We put our house on military by owner and are getting slammed with phone calls. We redid our whole backyard with gravel, red mulch, and a beautiful lion water fountain (which I hope is still there in the morning lol). Movers come August 13th to move us out WOOHOO!! Next week! Im still in school three days a week and in an online class. I have Ethics on Wed., Lifespan online, and then Tuesday and Thursday is my weight management which I have totally become burnt out on and will not be going back next time :( It's just waaay too much for me to do and raise kids all day, and try and have a happy sane life. Luckily, the class is over the same day we move in.. SO hopefully some of that stress will go away with the move. Anyways, Nick is doing good too! He has a minor surgery thingy tomorrow to check out his belly and see whats been bothering him. Then after that we are going to the Boat Picnic. Then here to clean and then Im off to Zumba!!

Thats us, I will write again in a few days! :)

Introducing......... THE SMITH FAMILY!

Okay so I am going to try out this whole bloggin thing (Thanks Crystal and Nicki for the inspiration). I think it will be a good way to document the girls lives, only wish I would have done it sooner.. I will probably be primarily focused on the girls since so much happens from 0-3 and my Roo is turning 4 in August..

So let's see..

Hannah- She is 10 months old now.. Just learned how to clap yesterday.. Crawls reallly fast.. and loves her milk. She can say "da-da" and while she can say ma-ma, she wont. lol.. She's a daddy's girl to the max and always crawls to dada when he gets home from work. She is always smiling and laughing and loves her little sister.. She currently has 7 baby teeth already and is going to have the CUTEST gap in between her front two! :)

Harley- Hmm.. Well.. Obviously she's 10 months old.. She has 3 teeth (behind the bandwagon a little) She can give kisses, but likes to make you work for it. She loves danger and likes to hang upside down. She can crawl waaay fast and loves to stand up and try and walk. So far she has taken about 5 steps in one spout. She will only do it though if you aren't paying attention or if you have food and bribe her. She loves toys but only when her bigger sister or brother are playing with them first ;) She is a mommy's girl and loves to say pa-pa just to watch mommy get sad.. She raises her hands up to me when she's sleepy and loves to cuddle to sleep.

Rudy- He's going to be 4 in August and boy I cant wait!! Three's are the pits! I love him so much and now we are working on more structure with him to keep him under control. He's soo full of energy and loves to run around. He finished playing flag football and starts up T-ball in July.. Pictures to follow! We officially adopted him on May 27th and love him so much. I look forward to looking his parents up in the (way) future and providing him with the chance to reconnect with them if he wants to. I will always be open to them because if it wasnt for them, I wouldn't have him.

Other than that there's just Nick and he's well.. a little bit of a great husband! I worked really hard this past weekend to give him the best Father's Day ever since this year he is officially a father of three.. I had to sell my workout equipment on Craigslist (times are hard), but I got him a new watch from Rudy, Some chocolate dipped cookies and a movie from the girls, and some Baked Ziti and Lawnmower Cupcakes from me. He said it was a great day! Yay!! I love him so much for supporting me and the children while I go back to school for my Master's... I think he knows that in the end it will totally be worth it when I am bringing in money and he can live off his Navy retirement.. (so he thinks)..

Okay, I hear Rudy up there playing during nap time so I better go put him to bed and get this house clean! Talk to you soon!
