We went to Cedar for the summer games opening ceremonies to see Uncle Jake on the big screen giving his family and cute wife Amie a message saying he misses us and loves us. He is deployed in the army soon to be shipped off to Iraq. After the movie of the soldiers messages to their families they had some amazing fireworks that shot off about 15 feet away from us and we literally were blasted with debris we were so close! It was so amazing though, the movie and the fireworks, we're so glad we went!
Ledger was born on April 10th at 9:24 a.m. He weighed 7.1 lbs and was 20 3/4 inches long. The kids are so excited to have another brother in our family. He is named obviously after his big brother Tatum. We love him so much, Asher wakes up almost every morning and just wants to hold him. Olivia loves to be helpful and get him or I anything we need. She also loves to hug and kiss him. Avaree loves him, but is having a hard time adjusting. She doesn't resent him, but she cries over silly things all the time. It's getting better every day though. Brandon and I don't hardly ever put him down, I'm afraid we're totally spoiling him, but I don't mind one bit at this point! He is going to grow so fast that I want to enjoy every stage as much as possible. I want to enjoy every stage with all of my kids, they are all so precious and grow way too fast!
I win the mother of the year award with this one! Olivia was in the back seat of the car and I pulled out of the driveway. I asked her if she had her seat belt on and she started screaming because she couldn't get her boots zipped up so I hit the brakes to pull over and get her buckled. I hit the brakes harder than I thought and she went flying into the front of the car and hit her teeth on a plastic part that knocked her front teeth up into her gums. A few days later they came back down, but they are very crooked now. After lots of dentist appointments we thought we were done for a while, but just this last weekend one of them started to abscess. So we have another dentist appointment on Wednesday and they will probably have to take out one of the teeth. I feel so bad for my sweet beautiful girl! She actually was so brave when it happened, I'm pretty sure I cried more than she did. She just kept saying it's okay mom, it doesn't hurt that bad any more. That just made me cry more! She's such a sweet strong girl!
Brandon and I have been married for 9 years, 10 in Dec. We have 5 almost 6 adorable kids. Asher is 8. Olivia is 6 and Avaree is 4. Tatum is no longer with us but was born on March 26th 2010 and passed away May 6th 2010 and we miss him dearly. Ledger is now 2 and we have a baby boy due in July. We are so grateful that we are a forever family.
