Catch Up! Kindergarten Graduation

Well, once again I have fallen far behind on blogging, I am sure you are all surprised right?

Ally graduated from Kindergarten. I know I have said it a million times, but Ally is an amazing student!
This is Ally with one of her good friends Memphis. Memphis recited Sick by Shel Silverstein by heart at the graduation, that's pretty amazing!
Here is Ally's class at the graduation, they will be the CLASS OF 2022!
This is Ally with her teacher Mrs. Davenport. I love her, she is such a great teacher.
Here is Ally with her Diploma. We are so proud of Ally and how much she has learned. One down and only 12 more years to go! That sounds like a lot but I am sure before I know it I will be blogging about her high school graduation!

weight loss update

I remembered that I was supposed to update monthly about my weight loss, but haven't for a couple of months. The biggest loser thing turned out great, it gave me the motivation I needed to lose weight and I came in second place (not too bad). I ended up losing 15.4% and ended the competition at 144. Since then I admit I haven't been the best and this morning I weighed 147 (woops), but I am still ahead of my schedule to be 130 by February. This week we are going to our cabin in Island Park with some friends and then next week we will be road tripping down to Arizona, so I am hoping to stay steady here over the next two weeks on vacation and then get back to hopefully losing again. I still have a long way to go, but the best thing for me right now is that I feel like I don't have "chubby pregnant face" anymore!

Piano Recital

This was Hailey's first year taking piano lessons, she has done so well. The pieces that she played were Once Upon a Dream from Sleeping Beauty and Seconds Please. Now that it is summer she has a break from her lessons but she still enjoys sitting down and learning songs, especially primary songs.

The Wizard of Oz

The girls were in The Wizard of Oz with their ballet last month.
Natalie was a bluebird in a dance around the scarecrow. She is so graceful on stage and did a great job!
Ally was a canary in the same dance as Natalie. (She really had to pee in this picture! haha) She is getting to be such a good dancer.

Hailey was a wicked witch. She recently moved up a level and is being challenged a lot more and she really loves it.
They all did such a great job and it was fun to go and watch them.

Brayden Update

Brayden 3 Months!
Brayden is getting so big and it all goes by so fast! I didn't keep a good record of when my other kids did things, (I think I thought I would just remember?) so I am trying to be better about logging the things that Brayden does. This has been a big couple of months for him. His first laugh was on March 27th. On April 23rd, so about a little less than a week after he turned 3 months old he started rolling from his back to his belly. Within a week of learning to roll he started scooting by pushing himself along with his feet. By May 1st he could also roll from his belly to back. On May 14th he found his feet and he loves to play with his toes now. He also went through a phase around then that he loved to make "raspberry" noises with his mouth and laughed when you did it back at him, he doesn't do that as much anymore. Brayden isn't sleeping through the night yet, but he does a good sleep between about 9pm and 3am so that is good at least, and then he usually eats again around 5:30 right before I get up to go running. He is such a good baby and is happy most of the time, unless he is sleepy or poopy, but can you really blame him for that?
Brayden 4 Months!
At his doctor's appointment on June 1st, he was 13 lbs. 12 oz. and 24 1/4 inches long.

So, I was curious what I had said about Lilly at 4 months and it sounds like they were very similar in their gross motor skills, (big surprise) the biggest difference is Bryaden is a very happy baby and Lilly had a temper and was a worse sleeper!
