Eyes and Two Front Teeth

This morning after Brandon had brought Britton to school my eye started to feel funny.  All of a sudden I noticed the white of my eye was sticking out/swelling and coming out of my eye.  Thankfully Brandon was still home and I raced to the eye doctor.
He said I had an allergic reaction to something and two eye drops, two shots, and two types of medicine to take later I was one my way home. He said that sometimes actually the white of the eye can swell outside the eye when you blink. Ahhhh!!!
We had Oma over for the afternoon to hang out with us. Beckett showed off walking and even started turning around/direction while walking for Oma.

Paityn loved having someone to play dolls and house with!
At one point Oma and I were in the living room talking about life. The kids were playing and jumping on the bed when I heard Britton start screaming. He came running out and said "mama look!" In his hand appeared to be two teeth. Apparently the kids were jumping and flipping and Paityn accidentally while flipping over knocked Brittons two front teeth out. They had been loose and after he calmed down he did thank her. It was easy and done with!
After the trauma of the day, sweet Paityn picked me some flowers!

Growing Up

Sunday- I keep warning the kids that the more they mess with Beckett the more likely he is to get them back one day!

Monday - I'm pretty sure my baby is turning into a little boy right in front of my eyes. 

I feel like I miss more in some ways because I'm keeping up with three. I'm hoping I'm always able to remember some of the small little moments or have pictures to remind me and them!

Tuesday - Beckett loves to snuggle on me when he falls asleep.

Often Brandon and I will be talking a and he will sit straight up not awake at all but sound asleep!

Today we drove to Patti's for some family time and good food.

Beckett has a sense of adventure the other two did not have at this age. He is gaining more and more confidence waking by himself and is starting to walk everywhere instead of crawl!

Having that many people eat all together is always interesting. Brandon actually came up a little later since Britton had a soccer game that morning. By the time he got there our food was ready and served. I think he was lucky!

Standing and soccer

Life just doesn't seem to slow down.
We enjoyed lunch with Oma at Burdetts today.
Paityn decided to make a little nap area in a bucket.
Beckett also managed to figure out how to stand in the middle of the room without holding on to anything.
Wasn't he just born?

It was a gorgeous night for a soccer game.

Britton has been playing great. This soccer coach really works with them and challenges them to actually think about what they are doing and not just kick the ball down the field.

My little princess.

Beckett is definitely our adventurous kid. He is fearless! Apparently while I was at work today he started opening doors at E-mamas house. He's going to get into everything!

Tonight I made some cinnamon rolls. I must say I was pretty impressed with myself. They are good!

Baby Deacon

This morning Beckett started clapping his hands. It's always so amazing to watch them figure out new and exciting things!
Today we went to visit baby Deacon and Jessica.
Paityn was so happy to hold a baby again!

Dance Class

Paityn is still loving dance class. It's been so nice watching her develop confidence in herself.

Beckett also started giving kisses. It's the sweetest thing, he grabs my face, opens his mouth and gives the sweetest, sloppiest kiss!

Walking Better

Beckett is starting to walk better and better by himself.
He's even walking with things in his hands!
