4 Months!

Wow, everyone already says it but time has just flown by. I can't believe he is 4 months already. Time seems to be slowing down now that I am done working all the time but it does go fast. He has started sucking his tongue in the last 2 days. He curls it up and sucks away on it. Its either that or his bottom lip. Too cute! Its like as soon as he learns something he does it all the time. He is still soooo in love with his big sissy. She just has to look at him and he smiles away at her and lately has starting grabbing at her and looking for her when he hears her voice.

She is having a hard time adjusting still I think, either to him or to me being home all the time because she has been acting up a lot more than normal lately. Its awful, I feel like I just started staying home (which I kind of did) and she seems to be in her room all the time. She just keeps misbehaving and doing things that she knows are wrong, she says after she knew it was wrong but says she doesn't know why she did it. We seem to be running out of options. She spends the day in her room, goes to bed without dinner (if its really bad), misses daycare (which she loves) and I just don't know what else to do. Hopefully it will start to get better soon, I miss my baby. Don't get me wrong I know shes a great kid and she helps me all the time and loves it and overall shes great its just these few things lately. I just keep saying to myself it has to get better.
So happy 4 months Brandon and I am very excited to spend the next month home with you every day!

So now that I stay at home (and I LOVE it) I finally have time to take some pictures, lots of pictures. Finally I got some smiling pictures, those are hard to get, everytime he sees the camera he stares intently at it. Enjoy!

I can't believe I am now a SAHM officially. This is rocking so far. I love it. I have time to get everything done, spend lots of time with the kids and by 8:30 last night Kris and I were like wow, we are bored, we have nothing to do. So we went to bed. And I still slept till 8:15, good thing Kris called to wake me up ;) Brandon is getting big so fast. He is loving him jumperoo, hes not quite jumping yet but its awesome. He can kinda just hang there and play with the toys. He is definitely grabbing toys more now. I got him a new wooden rattle ring today (shhhhh don't tell Kris ;) He loves it. Its the perfect size to grasp and he loves to chew on it. I can't believe how fast its going.

We are talking about Kris getting a vasectomy and I guess its OK I just am having a hard time saying that I am absolutely certain I don't want any more kids. Don't get me wrong I definitely don't want more but its hard when we are only 26 and 27 to say that for sure we never want more. Kris has no problem with it its me ;) We will just have to see.

On a new note Kristina took it upon herself last night to take a nail off of the table and carve her name into it. The letters are about 4" high too. Lovely. Lets just say she was sent to her room without dinner and is in there all day today (other than school.) I asked her why she did it and all she said was that she didn't know, and when I asked if she knew it would wreck the table she put down her head and said yes. Man oh man what fun we have been having today! I have to say its kind of embarrassing to admit when she does these things but really I know that its all in how you deal with it, all kids to bad stuff you just need to deal with it well so its not happening again.
PS Could I be any happier to not have the stress of the store and to have it gone? No way, absolutely not!!!! YAAAA For Me!!!!!!!!!

I am done like dinner!

Wow. I have sold my store and am officially (in 17 hours) retired. Well hopefully not for long. I do plan on working part time, like some nights and one weekend day, to keep my sanity and get me out of the house. And of course to help pay off the "debt." I am so done though. I still have to work tomorrow but wow, I feel done. I am sooooooo excited to be done. No stress, no more juggling Brandon and the store at the same time. That has actually been OK. I have enjoyed it thus far but hes getting to the stage where he is awake more and doesn't want to spend all day in the playpen. Well hes not in there all day but... So its only fair, now we can hang all of the time. Kristina is of course sooooo excited as well, she just wants to go to the water park everyday :) Brandon is definitely rolling more and starting to laugh more and more. I love this age. He is so curious about everything and just wants to stare at everything. I think that he will definitely miss seeing so many people every day as of course everyone ogles him all day. He eats it up of course, just like his daddy :) He is talking away and just wants to hang out. He loves his big sissy like you wouldn't believe. She just rules his world. She comes over and he looks over and gives her the biggest smile ever. They were having a bath together and she was holding him and he barfed on her. All down the front of her and all she said was get the camera mom, take a pic, I didn't though because I didn't want to leave them alone but it was cute. She just did not care. He has though barfed on her shirt and she was not happy cause she was getting ready to go to school and already had her outfit all "matched" she is totally turning into a girl. Anyhow off to bed to rest up for the last day :) YAAAAAAAA for me :)
