Week 63. Miss Carolina is transitioning from two naps to one. Really, it is so much better when she takes one long afternoon nap, but it makes me sad that she is more of a little girl than baby anymore! She has also moved up a size in diapers. She is getting to be such a big girl!! She still has some major bed head in these pics! ha! I think Sean is having some scary visions of his future! ha!
Week 62. Too bad her outfit cannot bring out the sun! It is supposed to rain all weekend. I guess that means I may get a lot of indoor projects done! Carolina is transitioning from size 3 diapers to size 4 and wearing a size 2 in clothes. She is trying to get rid of her morning nap, but it is hard because we have to leave to pick up the big kids in the middle of when she is trying to take her afternoon nap. Yesterday she had about a 45 minute nap all day. It made for a pretty miserable evening for all of us! She loves apple juice, blackberries, and Blues Clues. She is getting so big!
We have a little go cart track a couple of miles from our house. Sean and the big kids love to go when we have a free evening in the spring/summer. So, when we went to Branson last week the kids had to take Sean to one of the big go cart tracks. There was a cork screw thing to drive up, then a pretty big hill to drive down. Garrett was just about an inch too short to drive his own go cart, so he rode with Dad. He had a blast! Sean may have had fun also! Gracie on the other hand, since she is now taller than me, was tall enough to ride by herself. I don't know how well you can see these photos, but she was screaming like a little girl! It was so funny. Sean was the first one down every time, and Grace was the last one! She talks so big, but she is still 13. They had the go carts regulated so they could not go fast anyway, and she rode the brakes the entire time! She had a blast, I think she just had a moment of panic when she saw the hill!
Week 61. We went on a short getaway so we were in Branson last Friday. She wore that Krispy Kreme hat all over the hotel! She loved it! I can't get her to wear bows very long anymore, but a Krispy Kreme hat she will wear! ha! Hopefully we will get back on track this week. Lately this family has been stretched so thin. I think we are starting to dig our way out though. We are slowly learning to say no. Don't get me wrong, we are still so busy, just not quite as bad!
Garrett had strep a week and a half ago. He had to miss school, and a field trip! His favorite place to go is the Nature Center, and really, with how close it is to our house we need to go more often! Sean met us there for lunch and we took a walk. He loved it and more than made up for the missed field trip! Carolina loves her brother, can you tell! Ha!
We spent Easter in a hotel room and at a volleyball tournament and in the car driving home trying to beat a big storm. (How's that for a run on sentence.) There were no Easter egg hunts or Ham, but the Easter Bunny found us and Jesus still rose from the dead. That is what matters the most.
Week 59. It is getting really, really hard to take her picture! She is on the move all the time! I know it is Thursday, but the pics were taken last Friday. Our family has been spread so thin lately I was waiting for it to break. Or I guess one of us to break! It is starting to slow down now. At least only one activity a night instead of three. I will never let our family get that over committed again. Anyway. I have several things I want to get on the blog and document so I will be doing that today if the queen bee lets me! ha!
