Firsts for Claire...


Claire is such a good baby..she may want to always be held and enjoys her milk every 2 hours..on the dot...but she is a pretty happy baby!
Her 8 weeks has flown by and I can't believe she is almost 2 months.

Such BIG smiles! :) (7 weeks)

Smiling is such hard work...or mom was boring her doing dishes...either way..our little sweet pea feel asleep in the bumbo..and that hasn't been the last time. ha!

She also had her first bottle. I am still nursing but i wanted to introduce the bottle before she got too old and wouldn't take it! I did this with all my kids and all of them never had a problem going back to me...as long as they were fed they didn't care how it came! ha!
She was a little slow at first..but figured it out quick and did great!
Travis prefers babies after the age of 1...but he loves giving babies their bottle! :) Such a sweet moment.
And don't let him fool you...he's great with babies..and their diapers! :)


at almost 8 weeks..Claire made her first appearance at church...we were finally able to go...I wanted to keep her in for the first 6 weeks with it being flu and rsv season (yes, I am that mom).. and with the ice storms, holidays and hot water heater out we hadn't been able to attend...so, it was finally our chance..plus, with the holidays we only had 1 service at 10...so, the timing was in our favor as well. We typically attend first service at 8:15...that one will be a little more challenging once we start up again after the new year! :)
 Claire did great. I was able to pump beforehand and she took a bottle during church...she met so many people but won't recognize them next time since her eyes were closed! :) hehe.



Since she is staying awake more and more..she enjoys looking and playing at her underwater mat...hanna and ty even hung more toys for her to look at. side note...do you see a common denominator in all claire's pics...yes, Hanna...is always by her side! :)



Speaking of firsts....Ty and Hanna do not play by themselves..I am always having to play with them..which is fun..but, I would get nothing accomplished! 
But, after all their toys they got from christmas..they are both playing a little more by themselves...it's fun to watch their imagination work!









we are truly blessed....and I can't wait to see what 2014 brings us!

christmas..part 2...


We had such a wonderful christmas...yes, the presents were great..but spending quality family time was the best part. Plus, the kids were all at a fun age (Claire will have a blast next year) and made christmas even more special. It's so fun to see your kids face light up...best. part.hands.down! 
After Santa came to our house and to my sisters..we all made our way to my parents house...ate lunch,kids napped and then opened presents...what a fun time! Although our kids are best friends and get along great...they are all so different...and like different things...so, that makes it so fun! 






Claire's great-great aunt Betty Fay came to play and held her while we all opened gifts! :)


Not sure who was more excited about the bow..Ty or Trav..haha! Ty was so excited and HAD to shoot it immediately... along with his new camo jacket and head lamp! little replica of his daddy! :) 

He also got everything Ninja Turtle they make....he cleaned up in that category. My house has now been taken over by 4 turtles and their stuff...and I thought babies required a lot! HA!

Brady has always loved trains...especially thomas..and now is into legos..so he racked up quite the lego collection and continued his train collection.

Hanna got everything baby doll..and stuff for her kitchen! Every thing was "my favorite." She gets so excited about each and every gift...she's fun to watch..and a pro at opening gifts.



Sophi is the only one that doesn't have a specific liking...she likes everything...from babies to ninja turtles..but she loves entertaining and animals! she and her new purple puppy "violet" are attached at the hip! can't wait to see her "perform" with her microphone...

Girls also got "computers" so they'll leave their brothers alone! (hopefully)


Hanna had to help everyone else open their gifts.



ages..2, 4, 3, 2....and

a newborn (7 weeks)....

Hanna wouldn't let claire go...she said, "my turn to hold c-ware)...


we had to take advantage of everyone being together..so pics it was..





afterwards went to the park..where I locked my keys and phone in my car..and couldn't remember my code...so, while my parents went to grab my spare..the kids got to play on the playground...they were real disappointed I did that..haha. worked out to their advantage.









We were all tired from all the festivities..that today (saturday) we relaxed, took down christmas decor and enjoyed all the new toys! Trav went to the deer lease but didn't get a deer....maybe monday when he goes back! :)
We had been without hot water for 5 days....so, it was nice to do dishes, laundry and wash hands in hot water! :)  Thankfully, since my parents live close we had hot showers...but, it's always nice to be able to wake up and take one in your own! :) Glad..it's fixed! :)

Hope everyone had just as great of a Christmas as we did! :)

Christmas 2013-1

Christmas 2013....
Travis and I decided we were going to start being home for christmas eve and day so Santa can come to our house (to X out any confusion..now that they (especially Ty) are old enough to understand). So, we open  our family gifts christmas eve and then go to the prospective grandparents house (katy or midland) christmas day after santa! This year we are staying in midland so, we will be heading to my parents in just a little while...
Here's our christmas eve and day in pictures....

making cookies for santa...They did an excellent job! :) He loved them! 
Ty wanted to set out water instead of milk b/c he thought santa would prefer "Ice cold water."Good choice Ty!

 Claire's first christmas...
