    Threenager

    oh Lord…we are in the thick of the threenager years and it is HARD.  i’m not sure if it’s b/c she’s our first, so just parenting a child is the hard part.  ORRR if our child is really THAT much harder. c is VERY strong-willed and stubborn (go that from me) and there are some things that she just won’t back down on.  i understand her reasoning and WHHYYY she wants it, but the bigger problem is that she’s not listening to what mike and i are saying.  like her will to do something HER WAY and in HER TIME is stronger than any time-out, spanking, scolding, lecture, taking toys…

    September Round-Up

    this month went by SO RIDICULOUSLY fast.  work was so busy (prepping for the school year) and i didn’t take as many pictures as i probably should have… But here are some fun moments from September. LUCY’S 5th Birthday!!!!  I can’t even believe that much time has passed since we adopted our little baby love.  c’s slowly getting better at ballet~ it’s been awesome seeing her grow and learn new skills. <3 we showed this mama below (in orange) with a dessert shower for her baby boyyyyy.  so so excited. c’s violin and taekwondo lessons are going strong.  they are sooooooo cute and i love that she’s growing and learning…
