It is sometimes overwhelming when I get the chance to write on here to remember everything that has happened! I will try my best though. On Friday night my dad came over and took us to the movie Herbie. It was a really cute movie and great for little children. GG was clapping and cheering it was funny to watch her. After the movie when we were in the car GG said monster trucks are big but God is bigger. I love that she can grasp that concept. Saturday we went to the mall and I got some new clothes and then we went out for lunch. We had coupons to this new place and it was really good food. Plus the restaurant has free ice cream on Saturdays so that worked out good. When we got home from that J took both the kids and they put on a play. J was the narrator, GG was the princess and Monkey was the worrier. It was really cute and funny. J even recorded it so we can watch it again when the kids get older!! Yesterday was church. Today was grocery shopping. The kids and I stopped into to school and we got to talk to Mrs. Sherry. I am so excited she is in charge of the preschool next year and that she is Monkey's teacher. She is such a great lady. As for this week I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow it will be 6 weeks since Red was born, can't believe how fast that has went. The kids have their sports class in the afternoon. Wednesday we are going to my dad's to have a playdate with the kids' cousins. In the afternoon I might either go to a playgroup or the AH library not really sure yet. Thursday Red has a doc appointment and Friday J and GG have a dentist appointment and if we don't go to the library on Wednesday we will go Friday afternoon. Then Saturday J is off so we are going to go to camp Awana and see Liz for the day then church on Sunday and we are going to go swimming at the free pool by J's parents house. So our week is pretty full and hopefully it will be fun.

We just got cable internet a few days ago and it makes being on the internet so much faster. I can get on here and update my journal and be done. Anyways, my dad and step-mom just got back from Arkansas and want us to come over for dinner tonight so they can give the kids presents. So we are going over there for pizza!! YUM. The real reason I got on here was to write about GlamorGirl. This morning she wanted to play with her beads, she isn't allowed to play with them without mommy or daddy. So I told her that when Monkey took his nap I would play with her. If he was awake he would want to play too and the beads are really little. Anyways, when we were done Red woke up hungry so I nursed him. GG runs to get her baby doll Melody and says that she is hungry too. She sits down next to me and nurses her baby. While nursing Red pooped so he needed to be changed. While I finished nursing him GG got everything set up for me to change him...a new diaper, laid out the changing pad, and got the wipes. It was really cute. Then she grabs her baby and gets all her stuff ready to change her diaper! We have little cloth diapers for baby dolls. Everything I did or said to Red while changing him she said or did to her baby doll. It was really funny and super cute to watch. She is such a little mama. Then there is Monkey who wants to play with Red so bad he ends up startling him. He took the soft ball today and tried to play catch with Red...when he started crying because of the ball hitting his face startled him Monkey felt bad. All he wants to do is play big boy games with him, like he plays with GG. It is just so fun to see the differences in our children, it makes me love them even more for being them.

Today is Father's day yeah and we have a wedding to go to! We have decided that we are just going to go to the reception which is adult only. We got a girl from the soccer team to come watch the kids and they really like her so it all works out. They are all sleeping right now even J :) I have a cute story about my GIRL. I was nursing Red the other day and this is our conversation.
GG: Mom is Red eating or drinking?
Me: He is eating but his food, my milk, is like drinking.
GG: Oh ok this is what we'll do then. If he is nursing on this boob he is eating and if he is nursing on this one he is drinking.
Then this morning when we got up Red was hungry so I nursed him and GG walks in the room and says, "He is drinking this morning." It was funny and I couldn't believe she remembered which side was for what! But I guess it was really important to her to know which side did what for Red :)

What a day we have had today, not in a good way either. It really started with the fact that J and I stayed up way too late last night talking. The talking was good it was just that I am extremely tired today because of staying up so late. This morning we had a Kirby demonstration in the house were they come and show you how their product works and how *good* it cleans. Well the guy wasn't watching what he was doing and vacuumed up my mother's day present that was on the entertainment center, why would you vacuum an entertainment center?? Who knows. But the real question is why wouldn't you look what you are doing especially in someone else's house? Needless to say the company is going to replace my necklace. Then I get the kids ready for their sports class and we go with the directions from the park district. They were wrong and I got lost. Then we get there late to find out that the class was on Tuesday. I swear when I signed them up it was a Thursday class. That was just frustrating on top of everything else that had happened. So the kids and I went to school to visit grandma and then we went to the park and J met us there, he is working tonight. Then our friend Matt came over to get something J is letting him borrow and he moved a big chair for me that I just couldn't do and then he played with the kids for about 30 minutes. That was nice. We ate dinner and I read GG more in her book. Oh yeah we checked out the Little House in the Big Woods book from the library it is the book version of the Little House on the Prairie. She loves reading that book. So after we are done with this book we are going to get the second book, then the third and so on. What a great series! Ok time to get them to bed.

Well Red will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. J started back to work today and so far everything is going good. Dinner time will be the test :) Because J will not be here to help me. I will say I have really enjoyed having J at home, we have been able to get things done on our yard, take the kids to different play places, and he even set up our pool that the kids have played in a few times. Life with three is definitely more interesting!!! But I love it. And I know the kids do as well. Yesterday we went to Liz's graduation and the kids had a blast showing off their little brother. Ok that is it for now because I need to go......
