I hope you are all doing well! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Spring around here! Here are some pictures from our last month…
2/24 – Teddy came to stay at the Ratliff House (again) for the weekend
Connor is our big animal lover! He loves all kinds of animals and was so excited to introduce Teddy to his other “pets.”
Caroline on 2/25 – 25 weeks old
On 2/27, we brought dinner to our dear friends, the Onks, who just had a new baby, Laney Grace, on 2/6. This is Jason Onks with Laney and Jason with Caroline
This is after throwing a 20 minute fit. He was exhausted.
Sissy on 2/28 – 6 months old!
3/2 – Caroline at 26 weeks old
The boys on 3/3 in their new Hulk shirts. They begged me for these shirts and I could only find size 7, so they are a bit big
Tuesday, 3/4 was Cole’s first day of preschool, at Connor’s school. He did GREAT and Loves his teacher, Ms. Carmen!
Sissy went to Bible Study with me – here she is with Ms. Nancy
Cole was WIPED OUT after school!
Our 3rd Superhero on 3/4
Poor Cole got sick on 3/6
While waiting at the doctor’s office, a little boy walked up to Cole, in his stroller, and said hello. Cole, immediately, turned to me and said, “Mom, he’s harassing me.” the entire office exploded in laughter!
He’s back to napping in the afternoon now that he’s in school!
27 weeks old
The boys on 3/8, out to lunch. This picture describes their personalities perfectly…
3/9 – out to lunch
3/10 – new hair bows
So this was an interesting day…Cole broke Connor’s glasses (AGAIN) and I took them all to the eye glass place to get them all patched up and try to find an indestructible pair. At the place where they are fixing Connor’s old pairs of glasses, Connor tells the technician that I haven’t fed him in a week. Not cool, especially when the tech obviously doesn’t have any children and glares at me, disgusted, until we left. So, then I take them to Lens Crafters because I hear of these miracle frames that can bend in any way and not break. So while there, Connor is sitting on my lap and being measured for the frames and he loudly says, “Mom, your hand is on my penis.” SHEW! I don’t know how we escaped 2 CPS calls that day! This is a picture of his new glasses and below is a picture of the side of the frames showing why they don’t break
Back to the doctor on 3/11 to check Cole’s ears
3/12…this is basically all I can get Cole to eat. Greek yogurt, fruit and maybe some crackers.
We met up with friends at Bristol Bounce and the kids played for hours. It was awesome. This is my preggo buddy, Aaron and her baby Pete, who is 15 days older than Caroline.
Caroline was fascinated with him…
I love this picture…She is so thrilled to hold Harper’s hand. She thinks she’s a big girl…
Later that night we had a delicious dinner with Daddy at Mad Greek and Cole sat in a big boy chair! He’s such a good boy now!
Connor and one of his many robots on 3/14
28 week old Sissy
On 3/15, I ran my first race since I got pregnant with Caroline. It was a 10K in Johnson City. Great time. This is me with Adriel and our friend, Alison, who also ran with us.
With my friends Tricia and Trish
Adriel and I made it in under an hour! It was so great to run with her again!
St. Patrick’s Day Sissy 3/17/14
Special Spring Break Chocolate-Chip Pancakes!
3/18 Bath-Time Sissy
And finally…at Dr. Whiles for her 6 month checkup! She is healthy as can be. She’s 14.13 lbs (18th%) 26.5 inches long (59th%) and her head is in the 20th%. Dr. Whiles said she is long and lean. Go Sissy Go!
Have a great end of March!
