I am obviously not in my blog everything stage of life right now. My life is so busy yet so plain all at the same time. I sit home all day but when your running after three kids there isn't really time to blog or text or any of the simple things that I used to take advantage of. I mainly want to do this post just so I remember the things Steeler is doing right now. He is is now 6 months old and weighs 20.2 lbs. I'm sorry but that is ridiculous! I can't carry him around in his car seat that much longer. He is now starting to roll, he loves is stomach. I try to get him to be on his back but he just flips right over. He has been sleeping in his crib for about 4 days now and I hate it! I would rather him just be right next to me so I can just reach over and grab him to feed him, now I have to get up and get him so I have to wake all the way up so it's harder to go back to sleep. He still eats every 3 hours. He drools a ton!!! He can't sit up yet but he will balance for a couple seconds. Kai is 2 1/2 and he is talking a ton! He has always talked but usually only I can understand him but now he will just go on and on about everything. He will copy whatever Kelly says, he will say it however she does, like if she is worried he will be worried but half the time he doesn't know what he is saying. Kelly is just a little firecracker! Man she has an attitude. Shes not taking a nap everyday just here and there depending on how tired she is. She really misses preschool and her cousins. She asks me everyday if Hallie and Mayzie are coming over. This past weekend she turned 4! Really I have a 4 year old, thats weird. She was sad because she wanted her birthday to be just like Hallie's but she still had a lot of fun. Tika recently got a promotion and is now assistant manager at the Airport location which is hard because it is so far away but we like the schedule. This week he doesn't have to leave till 3 so he is able to be home with the kids. To be honest it is really weird, I am so used to him seeing the kids for 1 hour a day. They are loving it! Tika and I have now been married 6 years! That is crazy! I always make jokes about look at my life I'm 23 and have 3 kids but honestly I am exactly where I want to be. I have a wonderful husband who works hard to support us and works hard at home to help me. I really am the luckiest woman, Tika cleans more then me and he loves playing with the kids. And such beautiful kids. I really wouldn't ask for anything to be different. Besides that I want a house! :) And with that said here are a couple pictures! (I am not spending the time to proof read this or spell check so enjoy)

This is one of my favorite wedding pictures.

3 months

Steeler is now 3 months old! Wow that went by fast. I can't believe how big he is already and how fat I still am :). All you have to do is talk to him and he will give you the biggest smile! He isn't really fussy anymore so that has been nice!

Steelers Blessing

Steeler is now 2 months old! Wow where did that time go. We blessed him this weekend while all the Wesley's were in town. Tika did such a good job! Here is a few photos of how big he is getting. He is my hardest baby by far, he just cries way more then I'm used to but he is actually getting better and better each day. He still wakes up about every 3 hours to eat but will usually go right back to sleep.
Head circumference 16in, 63%
Length 24.5 inches, 88%
Weight 13.2lbs, 79%

I have survived the first two weeks....

Steeler is now 2 weeks old. It has gone by so fast yet it's been so slow! The first week and a half were pretty rough at night but now that I finally made it to the store to buy the gas drops he has been sleeping much better at night. Burping him is the biggest chore, he will take 10 minutes to eat but then 45 to get a burp out. I'll try to just lay him down without the burp and he will be quite just long enough for me to fall asleep then he will start screaming. So if having a new baby in the house isn't hard enough Kelly has had croup and a fever for the last week. She keeps asking me what time she will be done coughing. Oh and don't worry if that's not enough Kai has an ear infection and is handling not being the baby very well. Just another day in the life of a crazy mom I guess.....
At Kai's 2 year check up
37 inches long, 98%
28lbs, 49%

Kelly just lays around all day and wants to sleep.

Steeler's 2 week check up
21.5 inches long, 81%
9.04lbs, 61%

What we have been doing the last 2 weeks.....

The last two weeks have been a couple of busy ones! Here are some pictures...

I was busy getting really fat! ( And don't try the you were pregnant thing, I took 7th grade health and they didn't mention anything about the baby growing in your arms or thighs!)
We got lots of snow and the kids love it!

Mayzie had a birthday so we went to Kangaroo Zoo.

Tika also had a birthday he is the big 25!
We met Santa and Mrs Clause. Kelly was being such a bum when I took her then when Tika got there she just loved them! She thinks that Santa is Santa and his wife's name is Clause. I keep trying to explain it but I gave up.

Tika's family from Hawaii stayed with us for a couple of weeks over Christmas so needless to say they got WAY to many presents.
I got Kelly a picture book from when we went to Disneyland.
Steeler was born on 12/30/2009. He weighed 8lbs 13oz, 20.5 inches long.

With every kid so far my mom picks up the baby and walks directly over to the curtain to use it as a back drop for her picture.... oh Juli.

Thats the best family picture we could get!

Kai had a birthday! He is now my 2 year old!
