Big kids!

I haven't written for awhile.  I do have some more home made items to post, but I haven't gotten around to it. Oops!  I have been really busy with my new job at the hospital, plus my old job I am still working every other weekend.  On top of that, getting enrolled in classes to further my degree, and all of my motherly duties I have been swamped!

My girls had their first sleepover last night! It was for a girl in Bridget's class and she invited Alaynie too. :-) They had a blast! And it was in our neighborhood, so it worked out well.  They had so much fun! I can't believe how big they are getting.  Where did our little chubby cheek babies go?!  They used to waddle around speaking baby language, sip on sippy cups, and carry their binkies everywhere.  Now they are finishing out kindergarten and getting ready for first grade.  :( 
Cj is getting ready for kindergarten this year which is also unreal.  When we met (when his dad and I started dating) he was just a baby, couldn't walk or talk.  I know I didn't give birth to him but he is still mine and it has been great although bittersweet watching him turn into a little man.  Although he could have started kindergarten with his sisters, we decided to keep him in preschool one more year to let him mature a little bit.  I must say that was a great decision, because he has really excelled in school this year and grown up a lot.  He is doing so much better at counting, knows all of his letters now, and this extra year has really advanced his maturity level.  He is so excited to start kindergarten this year, and although it is going to be sad that the three babies I once knew will now all be elementary school kids, I am super excited for him as well!

Then there is Devan... the little man.  He just amazes me everyday with everything he soaks up.  He can count items to 19, he knows all of his letters uppercase and lowercase, and can sing the ABC's.  He is only 2!  If only we can get him potty trained haha.  Although he knows what it means, will go when I tell him to, he just isn't too interested to use the potty full time.  But that's okay, he will be ready eventually and I admit I'm not too eager for him to grow up.  He is our last, and will forever be my baby!

So there is my update.  I am excited to be going to my first wine and canvas party today with some friends.  Should be interesting! :)
