Kaitlyn's Early Birthday Party

This weekend, we had an early birthday party for Kaitlyn and her friends. Just a little affair at the house with some friends and family. With all of the parents, it looks huge. Kaitlyn had so much fun being the magician with Toybox the Clown. She was pretty cute and had Kaitlyn do everything. Kaitlyn wasn't shy and just did everything Toybox asked. She laughed at herself too which was so cute to see.

She definitely knew what she wanted and was so excited to open the door to all of her friends. She really enjoyed eating cake with everyone and had her friend, Aditi, from school sit with her.

We go to DisneyWorld Sunday and Kaitlyn is already packing a bag with things she wants to bring for her trip. Brandon is super excited and I am super excited to ride the motorized scooter. Yes, I think I am going to need it as this third pregnancy is certainly wearing me out a lot more than any other. Luckily, I feel big, but not as big as I was with Jackson at the same time.

Lots to Catch Up!

I can't believe I haven't blogged in awhile. I guess about two weeks. It was a wonderful time to stay home this Christmas season as we got to have snow and play in it on Christmas. Christmas Eve was so great to stay home and cozy inside. Brandon even got a little Bailey's to celebrate. Dad had quite a few and I loved seeing him all cozy too. It took a lot to go to Christmas Eve Mass and luckily went at 3 pm before the bad, bad weather. We were almost blown away.

Kaitlyn and Jackson had so much fun waking up in our house for Christmas morning. Kaitlyn kept saying she wanted to wake up first and come jump on our bed. But somehow Jackson knew what was really was going on and woke up at 5:45 am and would not go back to bed. Just around the corner he could see the tree and all that was left by Santa! Kaitlyn woke up about an hour and a half later and was amazed, but she couldn't believe she wasn't first to wake up.

We spent all morning playing with everything and then in the snow. Kaitlyn and Jackson had fun riding her new bike and his new scooter with the neighbor gals. We then spent the next several days just playing games and toys.

The holidays and parties and entertaining wore me out. I feel huge and I am starting to really get all the pregnancy-related health stuff along with getting big. I still can't believe this little guy isn't coming until April!

We are glad to get back into a better routine. We are still out of whack with bedtimes. We let them slide on the holidays and it is definitely hard to get back down on time. Tonight it took about 45 minutes and that is so much better than lately. Jackson did chew through his pacifer over the holidays so he is getting used to going to sleep in a big boy bed and without that. Hopefully, by the time April comes, everything will be working like clockwork.
