12 on the 12th [10.12.12]

1.       Drop off lane. It’s usually Spencer hanging out in the AM drop off lane at Brynlee’s elementary school, but since he had an early morning work date {5am, yuck} I was on drop off duty.  
A Note to Beth: I snapped this picture right when Chad walked by. He gave me the half wave with a quick what in the heck look. Ha! I’m sure I looked half crazed snapping early morning elementary school pictures from my car window. I was the tiniest bit embarrassed, but not embarrassed enough to pass on a second photo when my first one turned out fuzzy. Also, I hope you kicked Goldilocks booty. Can’t wait to hear all about it.
2.      Blog. Spent the morning creating a blog for our PTA. My hope is that it aids in keeping fellow elementary school parents informed while also gathering a larger volunteer pool for the PTA.
3.      Full. And then we ate lunch, ran errands and filled the gas tank.
4.     A tie. We raced the clock home from our afternoon errands hoping to beat the school bus to our neighborhood. The bus won, but luckily Brynlee decided to multitask and read her book while she walked which slowed her down a bit. We met up at the front door.
5.      Measuring up. All three of my babies had their scheduled well child check-ups + flu shots for the older two and immunizations for Marlee bug. Brynlee opted for the flu shot over the flu mist {which surprised me}. She took the shot like a champ, hardly even flinching. Brynlee was in the 38% for weight and 21% for height.
6.      Weighing in. Jace was in the 49% for weight and the 39% for height and said his favorite part of the appointment was when the doctor gagged him with the Popsicle stick. Your guess is as good as mine.
7.      My littlest little. At four months Marlee weighs 12 lbs (30%) and is 25 inches (78%). I’m curious if her current height is a fluke or if she will be taller than my other two. Also, that chick is so loved. Brynlee and Jace take such good care of her, especially after she has to get immunizations.
8.      Rewarded. Farrs ice-cream to celebrate doc appointment success.
9.      Four Months. Today makes four months. She rolls, she coos and squeaks and babbles, she hold toys and can make her rattle work, she loves the swing and evening snuggles and she laughs, and smiles effortlessly. We love her more than words can explain.
10.   Chopped, at last. I’ve had a dead tree decorating my front yard for quite some time now. Today Spence and the chain saw made firewood.
11.    Bengals. Brynlee, Marlee and I caught the ISU vs. Portland State Volleyball game. We won, go Bengals. I’m not sure if Bryn enjoyed watching the volleyball game, or the cheerleaders, or Benny the Bengal the most. She had such a great time and was completely thrilled to find that her {male} gymnastics coach is also an ISU cheerleader. Her comments, “I didn’t know boys could be cheerleaders. That’s cool.”
12.   At bedtime. And then it was toothbrushes & pajamas, scriptures & prayers, and stories in bed. A stack of newly picked out library books for the boys and Junie B. Jones for the girls.

To Mrs. Allen,

Just because it made me smile:
I love you. I love you for a first grade teacher. I can write my ledders because of you. You do a good job. I hope you have a good day. Love Brynlee

Thirty Days Hath September: Day 18-30

Marlee is a now a full circle roller. Stomach, to back. Back, to stomach. And then stomach to back again. I know I say it nearly every single blog post but I think it deserves to be said again: she is getting so gosh dang big, so gosh dang fast.

We had such a good time at the Beauty and the Beast play on Friday evening. Marlee stayed awake the entire time and was completely in awe of all the lights and noises. Jace got a tiny bit scared when the Beast made his first entrance on stage, but by intermission he was over it. And then, by the end, the Beast was his favorite character. Brynlee loved every minute of it, but I fully expected her to0 - we have yet to go to a production that she didn’t love.

And then on Saturday we had birthday doughnuts for breakfast and in honor of his special day I didn’t even make Spence help me clean the toy room.

Let’s see, what else?

It’s October and I melted Autumn Sunset in my Scentsy warmer today. Spencer signed up for another class … one step closer to his masters, I guess. The exterior of my house is getting taken over by box elder bugs and I had one climbing in my hair today. We have two pumpkins growing in our backyard and the kids have made their final decisions on their Halloween costumes for this year. Jace has requested hot chocolate nearly every single morning lately and its general conference this weekend which makes me excited. I got a massage yesterday {my first one ever}, and today my back is black and blue {is that normal?}. I caught Brynlee using the very, very top of the swing set as a makeshift balance beam. Awesome, and dangerous. And Jace got to wear his pajamas to preschool today … they learned about nocturnal animals.

Oh, and one more thing. Never do business with Insurance Designers. Never, ever. Never, ever, ever, ever.
