Family Picture Day

A little over a month ago we finally got our pictures taken as a family (by a professional). I love them! I spent waaaaaay too much money buying prints! I couldn't decide on which ones I loved the most and would be happy looking at everyday. So I did what anyone would do and printed almost all of them. In big sizes. I can't help it. I love my family, and I love looking at how happy we are and look in the pictures. How much fun we had doing a Superhero themed photo shoot :) Kaci and Kira's idea for that part. After I printed and layed out the prints, Kaci likes to describe them as "Normal family by day, Superheros by night." 

The lady who took our pictures is from Viroqua, and her name is Blair. Her company name is Loox Productions.  She's super friendly and easy to work with. Super happy! :)

It's only Wednesday...

And I miss this face already! Summer has officially started. Kira was home last week. We pretty much stayed home and hung out. We did venture out to Grandma and Grandpa Stussy. I had a photo idea in mind to take for a Father's Day present:
I'm not computer savvy, but this is a rough idea of how it turned out. The finished product is cleaned up a little, cropped and centered, and turned into black and white. I think it turned out great. The best part is that Dad loved it, so I know we did good ;) It was a lot of fun, but apparently the grass is itchy. lol. And the sun was super bright, hence the squinty eyes and Jax refusing to look at me. ha! Oh well, it's cute and homemade perfection! :)

Last day as a Kid-Ager!

Today is the last day of school for the kiddos. Kaci's last day as a 6th grader! Where in the world did the time go!? "Back in my day" (haha) going into 7th grade meant middle school. Going to school in Boscobel, 7th grade means high school I guess. Eh, pretty sure I will still and always think of it as middle school. I got some pictures on my phone the other day before we went to Kaci's 6th grade recognition. I point out "on my phone" because what I used to think of as my nice and fancy camera has turned its back on me. Can anyone tell I'm bitter about this? I love that thing! I can't get it to work for nothing! Anyway...look how grown up she looks! We measured her a few days ago and I believe she is only two inches behind me!

Our Days...

Look a lot like this! Lots of playing mixed in with Mama trying to study! :)
Then there's this. Sleepy monkey.
Your schedule is (knock on wood) usually getting up around 6 or 7 and staying up for two hours and then napping. It's a pretty sure thing that after you have been up for two hours you need a nap! Naps range anywhere from 3 hours to 30 minutes. Some days I think you are so much like me and the girls, worried you will miss something so sleep isn't even an option! 

Always such a happy baby so far! Always smiling! Though lately I think he knows what No means. LOL. When he is told no, and has something taken away that he shouldn't have, he gets mad and screams. Luckily it doesn't last too long.

Hopefully I will have more pictures of kaci and kira soon. It's easy to remember to take his picture often because we are home during the day together. When the girls get home from school things get crazy and it seems like chaos breaks out! Clean your room! Eat your dinner! Do your homework! Mom, can I do this? Mom, can I do that? HaHa. There's always something going on! I don't mind, I wouldn't ever change it! :)

Getting Cheeky

I love these cheeks!  We are having so much fun watching this little man grow! He is six months old, and the time is flying by much too fast! At his 6 month check up he weighed in at 23 pounds, 4 ounces, and is 28 inches long. Perfect! :) He is sitting up on his own for the most part. I think he's a little top heavy and can't handle it sometimes so he topples over. He's tough and it usually doesn't bother him! Jax has also (finally) mastered rolling over and over. Yay! It is so fun watching him roll from one end of the living room to the other, and he has so much fun doing it! Silly little bug only rolls to the right though. Once he gets to the wall or whatever he runs into, he is stuck there. He will not roll the other way, he lays there and keeps trying and starts to cry because he can't keep going or he has bumped his head too many times trying! No teeth yet, but I'm ok with that. I love that little toothless grin! When those teeth start popping up I'm worried it will remind me too much of how time is just flying by! I really love my family! We have the best time together! <3

The Big Day

The pinning ceremony for nurses was nice. It was short and sweet. I'm glad that I went. I was nervous, I'm definitely the type to fall over my own feet. I thought for sure I would trip going up the stairs! Luckily that was not the case. All went well, even Jax was good through the whole event! I am so happy to have a break from school, even though I have to take a summer class. Half way there! It seems like the first half took forever and that I was studying all the time! The hard work paid off because I did get all As, but I feel like I still have a ton left to do. Deep breaths! It's break time, I'm going to try and not think about it for awhile. 

Baby, it's bright outside!
