Welcome to my world of raising my four kiddos!  I want to let you in on the ups and downs, the good and the bad, the funny and the not so funny, and just my everyday life. 

I am looking to connect with other moms, no matter how many kiddos they have.  I remember what it was like having one child, making the leap to two kiddos, adding in the third, and now throwing in the fourth.

Here is a breakdown of my kiddos:

Maddison is my oldest and she is 9.  She is super smart and very silly.  She loves to cuddle and put her stinky feet as close to my face as she can (I hate all feet except for baby feet).  She loves to draw, write, sing and dance, and wants to be an artist when she grows up. 

She was a VERY sick baby.  She had colic, and numerous illnesses.  We were at the doctor just about every week to nine days when she was a baby.  She was on antibiotic after antibiotic, and steroid after steroid.  They told us she had everything from upper respiratory infection to bronchitis and so many more (it was something new every time); we were even told once that she "almost" had pneumonia.  She was finally diagnosed with asthma when she was about 3 or 4.  Moving to the dry air of West Texas from Dallas has been the best thing for her asthma.  We have it WELL controlled right now, and are very thankful for that.

Gabriella is my middle daughter and she is 7.  She was a very easy going baby that loved to cuddle.  She loves to play dress up and put on shows.  She is very emotional and will cry over the littlest things, especially early in the mornings.  She has a gorgeous smile, and can go from zero to crazy in no time.

Brayden is my Prince Charming and my only boy.  He is 3 and very much into super heroes at the moment.  He loves to cuddle, is a great big brother, and is still learning that he cannot be the center of attention at all times.

Paisley is my baby and she is 5 months old.  She is the only one to have light eyes (green at the moment) like me (the rest are brown like my hubby), and she has an amazingly big smile that will light up a room.  She loves to talk, she is rolling, and she is eating a few fruits and veggies.  

I am a breast feeding, co sleeping, baby wearing, mom that passes no judgement to other moms.  I have had to supplement to my newborn because they wouldn't nurse (or I had to many margaritas).  I am putting my last baby to sleep in her crib instead of in my bed (even though I love baby snuggles).  There are times that I let my baby cry because there is nothing I can do to comfort her while cooking for my other kids while my hubby is working.  I feel like I have done it all when it comes to parenthood, but I am sure there is MUCH more to learn!

I welcome everyone with open arms and a big Texas "Hey Y'all" and I hope my blog becomes a great new place for you to hang out!!

Till next time!
