Happy Birthday Berkley!!!!

I say this every time my girls have some type of milestone, but I cannot believe my baby is 2!! The last two years have went by way too fast!

Happiness is what this child is all about! There are very few times I can remember when Berkley was not happy. Most of her time is spent laughing, smiling, and eating. Some of the laughing and smiling comes from torturing her big sister, and she sure does enjoy that. Some of her favorite things in life right now are:
Anything that deals with Dora
Cake and Ice cream
Cheese dip and rice
Baby Dolls
Mommy shoes or boots (picture below)
Singing and clapping
Sleeping with her big sister
Our dog Wanda

The Birthday Girl!!

Already making a name for herself in the fashion industry with her bold and unique style!

She is workin Daddy's old police shirt!

I love her smile!! It is like eating your favorite ice cream, everything about it feels great!!

Happy Birthday Berkley!!! You are the sunshine in our lives!!!

Birthday at the Beach

When we were planning our vacation a while back we gave Chloe the option, we asked her if she wanted us to wait until after her birthday so she could be with her family and friends, or do you want to be at the beach on your birthday, and see your family and friends when we get back. Being the smart girl she is she opted to be at the beach (tuff decision I know) She had a great day! We woke her up on her b-day singing "Happy Birthday" to her. Every time I would see her I would start singing(which she hated..Yay Mommy!) we wanted to have the waitress at the restaurant sing to her, but we knew she would be scarred for life.

It was rainy and cloudy most of her birthday, so we spent most of the day shopping and talking about the day she was born. She loves to hear about this day. What time was she born? Who all was there? What was everyone wearing? Were you scared that I was coming out of your belly? Why did it take me so long to get here? How many times did Mrs. Amy call Daddy's phone that day? Did I cry when I came out of your belly? Did I sleep good at the hospital? Did a lot of people get to hold me?

She loved being at the beach on her b-day with some of her favorite people,her Aunt Rachel, Uncle Chuck, and cousin Sadie. She was so happy they were there. She got a new CD, and MP3 player for her birthday, and she is also going to the Miley Cyrus concert in Memphis. Check out the cute shirts Barrett made for the birthday girl, and lil sis! Got lots of cute comments about those! I think I gave a few people her webpage. Chloe had a wonderful birthday!! I can't believe my baby is friggin hoo!!

My girls Chloe, Berkley, and Sadie. My girls are obsessed with Sadie! She is soo sweet with them!

This stuff is awesome!! Everytime we got the cake and ice cream out, Berkley would take off running to the chair ready for her plate!

Goodbye T-Ball 2009

This past Tuesday was Chloe's last T-ball game of the season. She had a great time playing this year, and did really well! We are very proud of her! Her team was awesome! The kids and the parents! We got to hang out with some ole friends, and made some new ones too.

After the game the team headed to Chucky E Cheese to partay down! The girls got their trophies too! It was Girlie Madness I tell ya...Madness! The kiddos had a blast (the lil sis were having a blast too) The parents looked scared and tired. I think that is the look of most parents at Chucky E Cheese. We are very sad that the season is over, but already making plans for next season!

Chloe and her friend Taylor partay the night away!

Helping my sister celebrate!

Check out the cool trophy!

Chloe and Eva Grace. The hats are almost bigger than they are.

The cute little sisters!! They were the girls biggest fans!

Swing batta batta Swing!!

Chloe's Pre-k graduation, 50s style..sniff sniff

It was the week I had been dreading for months now. Chloe's last week of pre-school, and her hoo!! I cried every single day last week. I knew I would cry graduation day (which was Monday) but was not expecting the water works every other day...geez. Chloe was so excited about her graduation. She has been practicing at home on her songs, and her speech, which she did all by herself. You could not hear a word she said, but we were stunned that she even attempted it!! The program was very cute. Chloe got the little princess award. We were very proud of her! They did a little Grease Lightning dance, and some other cute songs that just made me cry more, and oh my goodness the slide show just sent me over the edge. Daddy was laughing at me the whole time.
The last day of school the kids took a field trip to Craighead Forest. They had lots of fun playing on the play ground, and getting wet at the splash park!!

The sad part is not leaving her friends(most of her close friends will also go to Kindergarten with her)it is leaving her teachers. They are soo wonderful, and they are not only great teachers, but have become dear friends of mine. They have been with Chloe since she was a baby. She loves them both very much, and so do I!! So as this chapter of her life is over I look back on the last 5 years. I am very proud of Chloe, and the little girl she is becoming. She is very independent, and she always shocks me with her little mind, and the things she can remember. She is a sweet and helpful big sister. As this point in her life when she grows up she wants to be a veterinarian, or a teacher. I think she would be great at either of them! She is soo excited about starting Kindergarten. I on the other hand am going to spend the summer in total denial of what August will bring!! Who's with me??!!

Family shots with our little graduate!!

Chloe and Jackson. These two have been together since they were 8 weeks old. Luckily they will go to Kindergarten together too!!

Getting ready for her pre-k graduation.

T-Ball Days are the Funnest Days

We LOVE Chloe's t-ball team this year! We are friends with almost everyone, and it is super fun and cute to watch the girls play!! Almost every girl on the team has a younger sister, except there is one little boy (poor guy). Emma is the best babysitter with the little ones! The little sis's are just as fun to watch. They are our "Dugout Managers". They make sure everything in the dugout is where it needs to be. They keep the line-up going, fight over toys, eat dirt, and food. Major important stuff!! If there is a helmet, ball, bat, glove, or drink missing, you can almost always find it with a little sister.. Check out Chloe's biggest fan with the helmet on the "cool" way. I am sad that the season will be over in a couple of weeks, but can't wait till next seaason!! Go Rascals!!

Why I like being Chloe and Berkley's Mommy...

It is the bestest, funniest, cutest, craziest, sweetest, messiest, and smartest thing I ever done. My girls and I were chatting about Mother's Day coming up, and Chloe starts with the 23 questions..

Are you and all the mommies going to have a party with cake?? Now you may be on to something there!

Are you going to tell me and Berkley you love us like a hundred times...we get it you loves us Mommy!! That makes me love you even more....ugh!!

Can I be a mommy so I can have a Mother's Day?? In about 32 years!

Can me, Daddy, and Berkley get you lots of presents?? If you insist!!

What about the kids that don't have Mommies?? We pray for them.

How many days till my birthday?? 38 after Mother's Day.

Mommy teachers are our mommies at school aren't they?? Right on there smarty pants!!

Mommy do you love your Mommy?? Very much so!!

Mommy I know Berkley loves you cuz she yells your name really loud when she sees you!! Tru Dat..

Mommy I am glad Jesus picked you to be mine and Berkley's Mommy...Not as glad as Mommy is!!

Whether you are a mommy to wild kids, calm kids, furry kids, have hubbys that are kids, my teacher pals that are mommies to 15-30 kiddos everyday I wish you all a Happy Freakin Mother's Day!!!

We got a SCARY DDDDDDora!!

Other than her Daddy Berkleys' favorite person these days is Dora. Whenever the show is on she is in a trance the whole time watching it. She never takes her eyes off of it! If she hears the theme song she will freeze and take off running to see it. It is really cute! So the girls come back from Aunt Rachel house with the biggest Dora I have ever seen!! It is bigger than Berkley, and almost weighs more than Chloe! It is very creepy push her hands and she says all kinds of things. So anytime we want to here Dora's high pitched, sweet, annoying voice, it is only a push on the hand away. Berkley thinks it is the best thing ever!! She goes up to it all of the time and gives her hugs and kisses. Whenever I see it I am thinking we have another kid in the house I forgot about! It freaks me out in the dark...I am afraid she is going to start talking to me in Spanish and it won't be nice things!! I am thinking about calling "Swiper the Fox" and seeing if he can come swipe it away.... Awww Man!!! Thanks Aunt Rachel!!
