Mannerisms... this is one.  I can't help but post this because it reminds me of my dad and my brothers and I can see them laying on the floor in this exact same way putting together toys or something of the sort.

This is for my sister in law Diana.  On facebook, I posted back to school pictures of my kids.  Brooke was seen looking ever so adorable, but I was scolded... "where are her bows?"  It got me thinking that, yes, Sky at this stage in life would have been sporting big, cute bows in her hair.  So this is for you!  I made them today!

The homework begins!
Lucky for me... Sky is a great reader and I was able to say, grab a book while I close my eyes and listen.  20 minutes a day here we go...
Soon after, cause I did close my eyes and take a bit of a nap (I'm exhausted by 4:30), I woke up to this... HILARIOUS!  Jett playing Wii while Sky the hairstylist did her magic.

Of course it's school day pictures cause it was a first day for my girls!  Sky in 2nd grade and Brooke in Preschool.  I cried harder after dropping my 2nd grader off than I ever had.  I could hardly keep the tears in as I walked to the car.  I bawled like a baby driving home and then some.  I realized how big she really is and I DON"T LIKE IT!!!  I'm sure some prego hormones and "I'm about to have a baby in 10 days" came into play, but still... I CRIED!

Brooke's reaction when I asked her if she was going to let little boys kiss her adorable cheeks...
Sky's choice for posing outside before school and it happens to be my favorite picture of her!

Another picture for today...
My dearest friend Suzanne takes care of me in the best of ways.  I never got around to taking my little Brookie's 4 year old pictures and now that I'm SUPER PREGO and days away from delivery, it's just not possible for me to do.   Fearing I would never get around to them, the AMAZING Suzanne said to me, "you just have to show up,  I'll take them and then you can edit them".  So Saturday we went up the canyon.  Suzanne had found that there were fields of yellow flowers and if you know my Brooke, her favorite color is yellow!  All of her stuffed animals on her bed are yellow!  She calls herself Brookie Bee and thinks bumblebees are awesome cause they are yellow!  It's just a yellow thing for her and I love it!  So up we went to get her pictures in the yellow flowers.  She lit up when she saw them!  After it was all said and done and we were fighting the mosquitos and the dark clouds, I took the camera and leaning against the side of my mini van snapped a few.  I'll share the awesome pictures Suzanne took for me on my family blog, but this is one I took and I love it!  She had discovered that the white flowers were stinky and she wanted me to smell them.  I went along with her game and would smell them and make a face to go along with the smell.  She thought this was hilarious!  This was a reaction to my stinky face. e.

Yesterday Brooke had her preschool orientation at Challenger and I wanted to dress her up and curl her hair (of course).  When I went in to do her hair and held up the curling iron, she said, "no I don't like curls, I like pigtails."  I gave in and put her thin, fine, short hair in pigtails.  She looked cute, I must say and all day I would catch her playing with them, flipping them around as if she were in heaven!  So this morning, as I was walking past her room, I noticed she was waking up.  She saw me and smiled and said, "I still have my piggy-tails."  She was so happy!

They were being so cute, giggling and laughing together on the floor.  I stepped above them with my camera to take their picture and ooops... my tummy got in the way.  That's what the grey blur is!  Uggghhh...

REALLY?  Almost a whole month?  What the heck?  So I've been busy with projects around the house and taking the kids to the pool.  Looking back that's all that comes to mind over the last month.  Oh and that almost every other day I got a migraine or two.  It comes with being prego!  I didn't take but a couple photos all month and I'm kinda sad but sit here thinking... I just didn't have any motivation to do so.  I think this pregnancy has taken a lot out of me!!!  TO SAY THE LEAST!  So here are the few I did take....
I made a small blanket for this little monkey on the way.  I couldn't NOT make him something, right?
Sky getting her track meet ribbons in the mail.  Because we didn't make it to the last meet or end of the year pool party, they mailed them to us.  She did well... and even placed 2nd in shot put.  Impressive if you saw how many of the kids tried that particular event. 

Tylenol.  Cause it's the only thing I can take and at the time, I wanted to take the whole bottle.  I had a day of migraines and non sleep that I felt the worst I have in a long time.  I even jumped at the offer when my husband called at the end of the day to check in, to come home an hour early.  I never ask him to come home early, but today... I felt I was on deaths door and couldn't even move off the couch.  The kids were hungry and I couldn't even get up to help them.
