My dad dropped off these cute bunny's and sheep for the kids! Andrew got a Thomas the train, it's cool because it got eggs and its Easter theme, I didn't know that they made stuff like that! Lauren got Dora bubbles and Courtney got candy! It was a great morning and we ended the night with yummy ham that Michael made!! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter!!

Today is one of those days that is bittersweet for me! I am so happy that she is getting bigger and growing, but the time has gone by so fast! I feel like the last year I have been running around with my head cut off, because these kids make me so busy. I feel like I really didn't get to enjoy my little baby as much as I wanted to! Time went by way to fast!! But I do love her and she has been such a great baby! Courtney is one! Happy Birthday little one!!

As I was sleeping, Lauren was playing in the bathtub, no water of course, but just getting out and in! Michael was getting ready for the day and watching her! All of a sudden I hear her scream, and I walked in to the bathroom and saw blood dripping from her head!
She has hit the bathtub twice in her life, the first time was when she was about six months old and got a black eye! And Now! Micheal decided that he would take Andrew and Courtney to his office with him, so I could take Lauren to the doctor! Poor girl! She got the durbond (superglue) and wasn't allowed to take a full bath for 5 days so that it wouldn't come off! It was so nice for Michael to take the other kids because then I could hold Lauren and try to comfort her at the office!

She can do a lot these day, like, pull herself up and walk around the couch, she can crawl very very fast! She loves loves me to hold her and baby her! She says MAMA and DADA! She loves to eat lots of food! She has been waking up at 4:30 in the morning lately, but I will have to put a stop to that!! Cry it out!! Mama is way to tired!! I think that she is growing up way to fast and I also think that until I have another one, she will always be my baby, even if she is 15!

I got to watch Oprah today, I don't really like to watch Oprah at all b/c I feel like watching her is a waste of time! Plus the kids are not quite for me to hear anything anyway! But Courtney was down for a nap and Andrew and Lauren were playing upstairs! The show was about having kids and how life "for moms" were upside down and that I wasn't the only one who felt this way! After having Andrew my life went from laid back to crazy in a few months!! I have done things that I am not proud of and I do get mad at my kids, I am not as happy to be a mom as others are, but overall I do the best that I can to get though the days! I like what one mom said, do what is best for YOU and make sure YOU come first, and then the kids will be okay!! Some days I feel like I do everything for my wonderful children and I am always last on the list and they are still not happy! Lately I feel like my life is getting a little easier with Andrew potty trained and Lauren almost potty trained and Courtney with be off the bottle soon, life will be still hard but different in a good way! I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel! It was just awesome to hear that I am not alone and that some moms feel like do and are like me! It was just refreshing to me!!!

So now we are back, and looking back at our little vacation it was something that I will never forget! Michael is so sweet to take me to this beautiful place, now, filled with a ton of memory's! He is sooo good to me and I appreciate him so much for all that he does! I am one lucky girl to be by his side!
We went on a day hike and it was so great to see all the big trees and be one with nature! Michael and I had lots of quite time to think and just be with each other! The hike was about 5 miles round trip, it was pretty difficult in some areas! But the view was worth it!
