Logan's 3rd Birthday

September 11th came so fast with everything we have had going on. Things have been slightly crazy here so it was hard to try and threw together a party. Our friends from Yuma were going to be driving through on their way home from a trip . It worked out perfect. Logan loves their kids and it made for the perfect party! He talked about a Buzz and Woody cake forever, so Toy Story it was! We ended up with a Woody cake and then a small Buzz cake. They were cute, and I didn't have to stress over making a cake. I thought about just getting the small Buzz cake for Logan then making a delicius cake for everyone else. Sweet Mallory pointed out that I would never have time to do that. (I only have time for baby sister) Funny she knows that!

Logan LOVES cake!

Jillian was so happy to see Addi...we miss our friends!!

Elise and Logan loving the cake! She is too cute!

All the kids had to join in to help Logan get the job done.

Logan got a totally awesome truck for his birthday. He was smitten! (It was on the clearance isle at walmart...even better)

2 months

We made it to September, and Hallie's 2 month mark! It seems like 2 years though. She is so sweet, especially when she is asleep. She was taking a nap while we played at the lake!

We go back to the doctor this week...we'll see if she has put on weight. For some reason she is really deceiving.

Our August Adventures

August was such a big month in our family. Michael graduated from Academy, Hallie finally got to meet her Daddy, and we had to say good-bye to Yuma and all of our friends (so bittersweet). Hallie was all ready to go to the airport and pick up Daddy. We were so excited to go back to the Yuma airport and make yet another scene...and boy was it a scene. The kids were so hyper and crazy! So many tears and emotions!!

Michael's first time holding his little baby! So sweet...and in the Yuma airport. We will always remember this place.

Michael and his 4 kids...looks like his hands are full.

So, we had a week all together before the movers came to pack and move. We needed a week to regroup and figure our Hallie out a little more. The week we moved was one of the craziest weeks of my life and we didn't even have to pack! It was so hard to do this with a newborn who has all sorts of issues. But we did it! I was so tired, way more than after I had the baby. I am missing my parents wathcing the kids while I sleep.

Then the girls had to start their new school which is 4 minutes from my house! I hate moving the kids. They were so sad to leave everything they knew and be the new kids again.

They are doing so good in school and seem to be happy. Church will take a little time. Mallory does not like it at all. I don't blame her...her class is a bunch of weird boys.

Then my sweet baby Hallie...NOT an easy baby. I thought she would be the easiest since she is the 4Th baby. Her main problem is failure to thrive...she is NOT gaining weight as she should. She is still plenty big. The weird thing is that she eats and eats and NOTHING! So, we have been to dozens of appointments, have had lots of expensive tests, tried all sorts of different formulas, and practically given up nursing, and still NOTHING! This little baby has had her tongue cut twice, had a not so fun blood test, an EKG, and an echo cardiogram...all while trying to get moved! Time will tell how she does. I think if there is a problem it is a digestive one.

Through all the business I haven't taken many pictures of her. She is such a cutie pie, and regardless of what her daddy thinks, I do love her name!!
