5 Year Anniversary

We have been married for 5 years today. It is so crazy! It seems so much longer but, once I think about it... it has really flown by. I can't believe we have been married for that long and on top of that we have 2 kids now too. So crazy! I will have to say... I am very happy and love everything about my life. I wouldn't replace or change it with anything. Here is a picture of us on our wedding day and one from today.

Yesterday was Hailee's first real gymnastics class and she had a great time (Heidi slept almost through the whole thing). It was interesting to see her listen to someone else besides me and Bob and I would have to say she listened pretty good to her coaches. All the coaches were great and they actualy had the kids work on mini gymnastics techniques. It was really cool to watch! I went ahead and signed her up for gymnastics once a week. I can't wait to watch her grow into a little Gymnastics Star :o).

My big girl

Things are going really good here in the Greene house :o). Hailee has been going to these gymnastic classes that they have open to the public. They have a thing called Open Gym on Saturdays and you drop them off and they do all kinds of fun things while mom and dad go have a night off. That has been really nice because then we all get a break and everyone is happy. They also have Parent's Day Out during the week and you drop your child off in the morning and pick them up at 1:00 p.m. They have all kinds of activities for the kids and all you have to do is make a lunch for your child and be on time to pick them up. Hailee LOVES it! So, I signed her up to take a real gymnastics class and see how it goes. If she likes it, then we will start gymnastic classes.

It is so crazy to see her on her own. When she goes to these gymnastic classes I go in and wait until they start and then I leave and she is there for a few ours on her own (well they have adults there to keep an eye on them and have activities). It is just so crazy to see her as such a big girl and not a baby anymore. I love it but, it is sad too. Before I know it I will be putting her in kindergarden.

Hailee has been fighting me on naps for the past few weeks. Which is fine but, we are still having quiet alone time. I need time by myself as both Hailee and Heidi are taking naps/quiet time at the same time. I am so thankful for this time by myself :o).

Hailee will be starting preschool in a few weeks and I can't wait. She has been asking me for probably about a year if she can go to school. So, I know she is really looking forward to it. We went shopping last weekend for clothes and she knew it was for school so, I think that really helped to show her she is going to start preschool really soon.

Heidi is doing great! She is on a really go schedule and she is sleeping really well (knock on wood). I am so very thankful for my two precious little girls.

Things are Better!

So, things are getting better with napping :o). Now that naps are getting better everyone is a lot happier (especially mommy). When Mommy is happy everyone is happy :o).

Heidi is so much different then Hailee was. Lets just say Heidi likes to cry and sometimes nothing can make her happy. But, Heidi does have happy moments. She likes to go outside and then she falls a sleep. She likes to sleep (well when it is her idea :o). I know that God has made them both very special and very different and I can't wait to see what He has in store for Heidi and us :o).

Kids say the weirdest things...

Hailee and I were watching 'So You Think You Can Dance' and we were watching this couple dance and the girl had this pretty white dress on. Hailee kept saying "That is a pretty dress." She looked at me and said that is you. I looked at her and said "That is me?" and she said "Yes.". I was thinking well that is nice. But am I the dress or the pretty girl in the dress or both? LOL! Silly girl!

Can you believe it?

It has been 1 whole month since Heidi entered this world. I just can't believe it. It is such a blessing to be a mother to her and Hailee. I thank God for them and their health.

Spoke to soon...

I guess I spoke to soon on how everything was going. It is still going good except naps. Actually it is the morning nap that is really screwed up. So, we get up around 8:00 a.m. and she starts to get tired around 9:00 or 9:30 a.m. (normal right?). Well I get her down and like 30 min. later (or sooner) she is up crying. I have let her cry and then I go in there put the (stupid) binki in and then of course it falls out or something and there she goes again. UGH! It is so ANNOYING! I have figured out the problem though... it is her hands. Heidi's hands are every where causing issues. They flare around and pull out her binki when she is trying to go back to sleep. I got some advice to swaddle her tight and to swaddle her high so, that the binki will be secure in there. I have been doing that (or trying to) but, she is so strong she escapes my tight swaddle. So, who knows what to do???? I ended up swaddling her tight again and I put her in the swing and guess what she is out... LOL! Let's see how long this lasts. Sleeping at night is going pretty good though. I guess I can't complain to much because Heidi seems to know when it is night time and everyone is sleeping (knock on wood).

Everyone else is doing great. Hailee has adjusted with no problems. She just wants more attention (which is normal). She will say "Mommy watch" and I will have to look at her and say "Okay... watching" and she does some weird thing (sometimes she makes it up right on the spot because she knows I am watching). She has been a sweet heart though and a big helper :o). Bob is doing good. I think he is trying to find a balance between work, Hailee, Heidi, and me. It has got to be hard for him to give everyone attention and the love they need in just a couple of hours. I am doing good. I am trying not to get to irratable with this whole napping and waking up thing. I can't complain though because I think I am getting some good sleep (knock on wood). Well... until next time...

We are surviving!

This week has been our first full week by ourselves and I will have to admit it has gone pretty good. Everyone is adjusting well and we are all on great schedules. I don't know how I did it or how it happened but, Heidi has been sleeping through the night with only one feeding at like 3:00 a.m. Then we go back to sleep until about 8:00 a.m. (watch... I am going to jinx myself). Again, don't ask me how I did it. Things are going well and I am looking forward to getting some kind of a break this weekend. Thank you BOB!
