Andrea got AMAZING pictures of my kids. I LOVE them. I can’t decide if I like the b&w or color ones better.
Thomas will be 7 next month and it is so hard to believe he will be that old! He is such a good kid. He is doing great in 1st grade and he loves school.
He can be a great helper and big brother at home.
He loves to sing the primary songs and knows most of them by heart. He loves going to church.
He is a great kid and we couldn’t ask for a better oldest child.
Kaylee is my helper. She always knows where everyone’s shoes are or whatever is missing. She is always quick to help me when I ask. She loves to color and do artwork. Averi and Kaylee are becoming friends. Averi loves when Kaylee plays with her.
She does have a stubborn streak, I don’t know where she gets it from! If she doesn’t want to do something there is no way of changing her mind and you can see it in her big blue eyes.
She has come so far in the last year since we found out about her cleft palette. She is speaking so much clearer; others can understand her now. She loves going to school.
Matthew is the 3rd child..He has really grown up the past few months. He isn’t fighting with others as much, he seems much happier. We think he will be our football player because he is very rough and tumble still. He also loves going to school.
I think we will have to worry about the girls with him. The other day he said, “Mom, Chanley loves me.” I asked how he knew and he said, “she tells me. I like her too. She’s my girlfriend!” Already at 4!! He can be a charmer when he wants something.
He is very excited to be able to play soccer in the spring. He loves going to his buddies houses and never wants to leave. He is an expert at Angry Birds and can clear levels that Jim and I get stuck on.
Averi, the baby of our family. She is a tad spoiled, it is hard not to spoil her because she is so dang cute! She is growing up too fast as she tries to keep up with Kaylee and Matthew. Her hair is finally coming in, it is still very blonde, I was sure she would have brown hair. She loves her pink shoes, she has about 10 pairs of hot pink shoes in various sizes that I got from a friend, they are all her favorite!
She loves to color with pens and pencils. She will sit at the table forever with a piece of paper and a pen. She draws sweet little doodles all over the paper on both sides.
She is a momma’s girl. All of the other kids at this age preferred Jim to me. But she prefers me most of the time. When I go somewhere Jim says she gets a sad look on her face and asks, “Where Mamma?” We are so glad that we have this little surprise in our family. She is such a blessing to us!
