Courtney would just sit in the stroller and then fell asleep! Andrew was having fun with his friends and knock on all the doors! We just stay in our neighborhood this year and I loved it!

Courtney 6 Months old

My little cutie is half a year old! She is getting so big! I will be taking her to the doctor in about a month because I got her shots to late last time! She loves to be apart of everything now! She love putting everything in her mouth, shoes, paper, pens, my cell phone, etc. Yesterday Lauren gave her a crayon(I didn't see it) and she went to town on it, when I went to take it away she was so sad and was screaming! Like how dare you mom! She takes about 3 naps a day now, morning, noon, and at 5ish and sleeps for about 45min. and then goes to bed very good! She still wants me to hold the bottle for her and doesn't want to hold it herself! She doesn't want to stand up, not even for awhile, so she might be a late walker. She loves to giggle and laugh! Happy half birthday Courters.

Andrew-"Mom, Courtney James is cute"
Mom- "Yes, she is cute! But her name is Courtney Jane not James!"
Andrew-"Courtney James?"

It must be the way I say it!

Patience (ˈpā-shənz) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances. This can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast!

Well I have come to really want more patience in my life! Last week Lauren had a ear infection and this week Andrew got pink eye! Andrew throw up twice today! I feel sick, like I been hit by a bus. I feel like I am at the end of my rope! Please let me have compassion for my sick kids and let me have the understanding to help them! I really love them!! I just don't like it when we are all sick!
If people can do it with 17 kids, well then I can do it with 3, right!!

She did it!

Lauren wanted to follow her brother everywhere, but she was a little unsure about the slide! She would just look at it and then she would watch her brother, and then she did it!! All by her self, she wouldn't let anyone help her, that's for sure! It was fun to watch her, she is growing up and it makes me sad!!

I think I live in the wrong state!

Michelle-"Michael, I miss the magic the snow brings"

Michael- "I don't, what magic"

Michelle-"I miss the snow everyday"

Michael-"Why, its cold"

Michelle-"I love being cold"

Michael- "Well I am cold all the time"

Michelle-"We will live somewhere where it snows, someday"

Michael- "It snows in NV"

Michelle-"No, I want to feel the magic of the snow in my front yard! Day after day after day!"

Micheal- "I will get you a snow blower and and shot it from the back yard to the front yard!"

Michelle-"Thanks, but it isn't really the same"

I was really impressed that he actually thought of something to say to me, and the thought of him doing this was really HOTT! I would love it if he would do it for me! But still isn't the same! I really do love the snow/cold and I miss it everyday! I complain almost everyday that it is too HOT! I call my mom and ask her if it has snowed yet, hoping to hear the snow though the phone! When she saids "No, it is a nice day" I get all sad inside! Maybe I just have that summer depression or something!

I remember when I was a kid, I love playing in the snow and I would volunteer to shove the snow off the driveway! I remember walking to school in the snow and my teacher would said isn't cold outside, and I would say "Yes, but I love it" I always wanted to have a cabin-like house and always have snow somewhere to look at though out the year!

As I think about everything, the only thing I can say is that I must really love Michael for putting up with the hot for so many years! He loves it hot =(!!

I never thought much about it when we were dating! I just thought that I was in love and happy and all other things would just fall in place! Well for the people who are dating and reading this, make sure that you have the same temp., it is our biggest fight!!
